Hi,

I'm trying to change the theme (only using standard dark and light themes) from a linux terminal. My attempted routes include changing a user.js file (the rest of the file works), in particular setting extensions.activeThemeID (I've also attempted doing this in about:config, as well as editing the extensions.json file).

I can change the theme by going to add-ons in a browser. This works fine. I was hoping to automate it (it's not the 1980's - clicking three times to change to a default theme seems unnecessary).

Am I missing something that must be changed in about:config or any other file to change the theme? The extensions.activeThemeID changes when changing the theme in add-ons and seems the likely option but does nothing if I change this value myself.

Good day, i met next issue with Coockes transfer during redirections (i suppose that).

I.e. when i try to download smth from Google drive i got: An error occurred during a connection to doc-0o-ag-docs.googleusercontent.com.

   This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies.

I try to follow standard advises such as disable tracking and cookies blocking (as well i disable fingerprints and all addons and delete all cookies and history storage and it's didn't help at all).

I try to download in private mod as well, but got stacked with same issue. With Chromium all works fine.

Firefox version (nightly): 78.0a1 (2020-05-28) (64-bit)

I try to download with vanilla Firefox - same result.

  2. Closed Firefox (quit)
  3. Re-opened and got the Profile missing error.
  4. troubleshoot through existing threads on mozilla support. including renaming the profile.ini file, deleting it, moving it, etc.
  5. Used Appcleaner to wipe all known goodies of Firefox from my computer
  6. downloaded a fresh 76.0.dmg from the website
  7. Problem persists. Application does not load, "Profile missing" opens immediately
  8. No application support data in /Library/ application support/firefox exists

Chrome works and Safari works no problem.

Since updating to Mac OS Catalina, Firefox is displaying some text/fonts on websites as boxed question marks. I have tried some of the suggested fixes including: 1. lowering the security.sandbox.content.level to a value of 2, 1, or even 0, but no success. 2. Type about:preferences#content<enter> in the address bar. Across from fonts and colors, press the Advanced button. On the bottom, turn on Allow Web Sites To Choose Their Own. When checked - The boxed question marks appear. 3. The problem is only happening in Firefox. No problem in Safari. (see image)

I have a website, a typical three column design, with NAV, MAIN and ASIDE elements. A reader view option appears in Firefox, but ironically, only the ads in my ASIDE element show up when I click it.

The MAIN content uses SUMMARY/DETAILS to group things. Personally, I would think this combination would scream reader view content, yet MAIN is ignored entirely. It has some links, but so does my ASIDE (advert) content.

My ads are simple blurbs and links, no pictures, for my own ebooks, and are not served by a third party, so I can see how they could get picked up and I'm fine with that. What puzzles me is why the MAIN content is being ignored.

The site in question is: https://waxphilosophic.sdf.org/erotica/ It is marginally safe for work provided you do not click any of the links. No explicit images.

As a test, I even tried changing the SUMMARY/DETAIL of my "What's New" section to ARTICLE followed by an H2 heading. No change in behavior. https://waxphilosophic.sdf.org/erotica/test.html

The HTML passes the W3 validator. I searched Firefox Help / Stack Exchange. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Hi

I am using Firefox on Mac OS Sierra and I manage a number of websites using Joomla. I've had a problem for at least a year whereby Joomla admin keeps on quitting when I'm navigating around the system in Firefox.

I finally gave up using Firefox for this purpose and I always use Google Chrome instead, and I've never had this problem occur in Chrome. I thought it might be related to my specific install, but on a couple of occasions when I've tried to use it on my laptop, which has a pretty pristine installation of FF, the same thing has happened.

However more problems seem to be surfacing over time, principally: 1. I am frequently unable to click a link on a web page until I refresh the page 2. Problems completing online forms. For example I just tried to make a payment transfer in Paypal but was unable to type in the amount. When I logged in with Chrome instead, it worked fine.

Firefox has been my preferred browser for a very long time and I'd like to continue using it as my main browser, but unless I can eliminate these sorts of problems.

I wonder if anyone has experienced similar problems and if they have found a solution to them?

Many thanks Jennie

Since I upgraded my macbook to Catalina, I found that my macbook can longer automatically go to sleep when the lid is open. And the culprit seems to be the firefox browser, because in the activity monitor, it always shows that firefox is preventing the sleep.

Is there any reason that firefox is preventing my laptop to sleep? And how can I turn it off.

I'll be browsing a website, and with no rhyme or reason Firefox (on Windows PC) will decide that this website no longer exists and is no longer available, even the page I was on 2 minutes prior is no longer available (it even tried telling me that mozilla.org no longer existed). But the same site continues to work fine on the Firefox on my Android device.

The sites eventually "come back", but it's not very productive for a site to "disappear" in the middle of something.

On 77.0.

Noticed that after last update, opening a new tab with audio on the previous tab (such as a YouTube video playing) causes the audio to pause/stutter each time a new tab is opened.

No other changes to this system, and good amount of resources available in each test. Would be great if someone could quickly repro. (I am not discounting a machine-specific cause yet.)
