A website I use to move money - getting message telling me cookies is blocking 3rd party cookies. and I need to enable 3rd party cookies. I go to settings in firefox and for the information to set settings to enable cookies 3rd party they do not work. They tell me to check and uncheck boxes that I do not even have for setttings. I never had this problem before until Jan. of 2022. I have to use a different browser to get to the website and complete my task. There is something in the Firefox browser or they made changes/updates. Need step by step instructions. NEED TO TALK TO SOMEONE.

Hello, I wonder why Firefox is deleting all my cookies same time without my permission after a while (apprx. 6-8 months)?

- Private Browsing is disabled. I never need this option, so it's turned off all the time - "Clear history when Firefox closes" option is unchecked

Firefox 96.0.2 home screen color

I saw this posted: (A) Right-click context menus, toolbar drop-down panels Starting in Firefox 89, these would flip to a dark background if the text on the inactive/background tabs was white or light. Firefox 96 has extended this adaptation to more parts of the browser. As far as I know, the only built-in way to avoid this is to change your toolbar theme to one with dark text on the inactive/background tabs. (The other way is the not-officially-supported userChrome.css file route.)

OK, I have been using a "not-officially-supported userChrome.css file" for quite sometime. Every 4th or 5th update (sic) screws it up. Apparently the latest (96.0.2) "looks" at my toolbars, makes an (erroneous) assumption and turns the main part of the home screen to black.

Not useful!

Suggestions to override Firefox's (less than helpful) assumption?

Not sure when it happened, but some of the information for an installed add-on is missing. There is no author link or a homepage link. When I search the mozilla add-ons website I can't find the add-on anymore.

This is the add-on name and version:

Downloader for Instagram™ 1.0.4 June 3, 2020

I don't know why the Mozilla add-ons website doesn't detect what add-ons the user has installed when you search. That would be very helpful and why it isn't a default feature is dumb.

You have users sign in to the add-on account, why not include that feature to make things easier.

I'm guessing the solution is remove the add-on and hope another one can do what I installed the other add-on for.

I noticed the icon for this add-on appears in the overflow area of the toolbar. When I click on the icon it opens a link to a page that no longer exists when I search Google and the wayback machine archive site.

Firefox should find out if this happens and notify users that an add-on is defunct.

Anyway, here's the website associated with the add-on.

Since install of release 96.0.1, all drm streaming on pc has failed. Running windows 10 pro. Have cleared cache, restarted pc and router, refreshed and then reinstalled firefox. no luck. then i reverted to release 95.0.2 and everthing worked fine. but then, despite the fact that i disabled auto updates, release 96.0.1 was reapplied and streaming was broke again. cannot use amazon prime or comcast streaming services. youtube works intermitently. why was current release reapplied regardless of auto update setting and why is streaming not working? streaming works on chrome but not firefox. i have been using firefox for as long as it has been around. must i now be forced to use chrome instead?

Some major probs just developed & now I have a totally different theme & a new version of Firefox 56.0 installed today... See image of installed programs

while I still have Firefox 95.0.2 from 12/20/2021 Firefox 54.0.01 from 8/19/2017 Firefox 61.0.01 from 7/30/2018 Over time newer versions accumulate & I've been told not to try to uninstall any of the older versions as it may crash ALL versions


it happened I think sometime after closing a normal session ... I was trying to clear out everything (junk & temp files etc.) as I normally do when using CCleaner then a message said Previous session not correctly closed a message said Firefox is still running do you want to force it to close" I said yes...then it said "its taking a long time to close... do you want to force it to close? I said yes... this happens occasionally & with EDGE as well...but usually there's no problems afterwards

btw: I'm using [Windows 8.1] & after several attempts at restarting Firefox...with different 'fixes' including using safemode... I did a computer restart ... & I did a regular profile backup last time 12/16/21 so as a last resort it may help...but I'm afraid to try to mess with it

anyway...then I was trying to look up solutions & for those of us who are not tech savvy..there's too much info & too may options & links & they lead to new articles like using about:config & browser.sessionstore.resume_from_crash & restoring sessions etc which just gets confusing I copied raw data to clipboard (which is a million pages) & then copied text to clipboard (not as bad...but it may help someone to help me....

hopefully someone can straighten this out for me... I'm worn out trying to figure it out myself thanks

As of yesterday my screen has gone black. Not on all sites, my homepage is a UK news site and that`s OK but my email is all black, when I try to search for a new sight the google page is black. Some sites come up black and some white. Sometimes the site background is white but the drop-down box is black. I have tried disabling all add-ons it makes no difference. I have tried un-checking these boxes: "Use recommended performance settings Learn more These settings are tailored to your computer’s hardware and operating system. Use hardware acceleration when available" I am demented and have tried fiddling about for a whole afternoon to try to sort this. I have had Firefox for years and have never had this problem. My version is 95.0 (64 bit)

Received a pop-up saying Firefox not working. Tried to refresh but icon wouldn't go to home screen. It placed a folder on my desktop "Old Firefox Data". Restarted computer but still couldn't get in. Tried to do Sync, but asked me to sign in and when I clicked on that it tried to run my email but didn't show the "m" in ".com" [....@gmail.co ]. After several attempts I had to download Firefox again. It shows some of my icons on the default page, but not others.

How do I get back to the home page I had previously constructed?

For years I've had the same problem of basic resets on my custom settings everytime Firefox updates. I've read hundreds of posts, complaints and suggestions.

The best suggestions I've found are to use both userContent.css and changes to the about:config file. I have actually created a .txt file of unique about:config lines and settings so I can copy, paste, and set to my settings without having to look everything back up again. It still takes me 10 minutes, but at least it gets done my way.

A solution I think all of us would love to see are simple instructions on how to back up the current about:config settings and reinstate them AFTER an update so our choices stay as we want them. This shouldn't be too difficult. Export settings are available for all kinds of parts of Firefox, Thunderbird and add-ons. How about making that a priority in the next update?

Hi,

I downloaded the new Firefox browser a couple of days ago and now I have lost all my bookmarks.

Does Firefox have a recent backup that I can import?

I clicked on 'Bookmarks', then 'Manage Bookmarks', select restore, but the bookmarks are from months ago.

Where are my current bookmarks?

Also, where is the bookmarks icon which was in the top right-hand corner, how do I access the bookmarks in this new version?


Kind regards,

Maria

I hate surprises like these! So far i trusted FF that after an update my layout would still be intact as was, but no they forced this black sh.. onto me as a background for the home page - and no alternative anywhere to switch this back to white or any other options. Do i want to install a plugin for this simple basic option - hell no, i'd rather get rid of FF as my default browser if you think you can play dictators too now. What i miserable attitude you people have. If you change for life )white) to dead (black) you might as well declare you are on your way out as a browser - or offer the option to change that bg color real quick

As many here have said, the latest Firefox update has reversed many web pages and menus from white-with-black text to black-with-white text. I can't believe that Mozilla really meant to do this. This is very annoying. It would be one thing to offer it as an option, but to just jam it to us without warning is plain obnoxious. I did do the about:config color-scheme override but that only fixed my Firefox search page. Everything else is still black. Thanks a lot.

I've already checked around the forums and nothing that other posters have suggested works to change it back. Yes, I use a custom theme and I'm not going to change it to "white". I didn't make any changes , firefox did.
