Firefox was working fine after update to version 96.0. Firefox was no longer displaying Fonts correctly.

Interactive pages have become almost unusable. It is very difficult to navigate and fill in forms because most buttons and fields have no borders. The screen is mostly blank with just text and a few bits with borders. It is difficult to see where to click or add text.

I've tried resetting, running in safe mode and running with a fresh profile. None make any difference.

I'm enjoying the feature of the pinned "Amazon Search" on Firefox Home – not just a shortcut to Amazon, but a shortcut with a blue magnifying glass that adds the "search with Amazon" parameter to the main search bar and allows you to search Amazon.com without having to visit the site first. I was wondering if it's possible to add a custom shortcut for other search engines... for example, YouTube?

For reference, I have a custom search keyword established in Settings for YouTube – "@youtube". But I want to know how I can have that keyword pinned to my Home page, just like "@amazon" currently is.

Thanks in advance.

I have been a "light theme" user for 15+ years. Since updating to 96.0 today, a dark mode spreading across Firefox has been forced onto me, including:

  • New tab background
  • Background of any tab waiting to load a page
  • Google/Youtube background
  • Settings/add-ons/password menu backgrounds
  • Automatic username/password drop-down background
  • Background of the little box that appears on the bottom-left (the one which shows the URL when you mouse over a link)

I am unhappy with this and wish to have my usual theme back. Can anyone please assist?

(In addition, there is some sort of white border around the current tab, which I do not like)

I am currently using an older addon called Window Titler which I would like to remove as it has not been updated in a while. However I cannot find a way to name my different Firefox profiles with a Titlebar name. This is very very helpful to tell what profile you are working in as without it you don't really know.

Is there a way in about:config or somewhere else to configure the Titlebar without using a plugin?

I have a new installation of Firefox on a new M1 MacBook Pro. I copied over carefully selected settings files from my old computer, and now several icons are missing from the drop-down search and address boxes. I attempted renaming several of my transferred files to see if Firefox would rebuild them and correct the problem without success. Reinstalling Firefox was likewise unsuccessful. Does anyone know how to restore them? Please see attached image. Thank you.

These types of answers are unacceptable as "Help", just sayin. "I'm wondering WHY you want to use magnet links for (besides the obvious reason of torrenting)."

The reason why someone would want to do something isn't of your concern, really. However, WHY someone would want to set a particular application of launching magnet links, without having to search on help forums to find something hidden in about:config is because not everyone wants to install a list of 3rd party programs to a Windows installation. Nor CAN everybody install such things. So what some people do is use "Portable Apps." When this is done, firefox isn't going to become aware that this type of program CAN be used on the Windows install in question, because it's not actually installed.

Why is there not an "Add" option for the "Applications" list in the settings panel? That makes no sense. Essentially what's been done here is that Firefox says "I'll only interface with programs that are fully installed on this machine, and to hell with your portable apps."

I realize that there is a growing trend of adding bumpers and safety pads to everything in the world, but people really can take care of themselves. I also realize that there has been this trend where FireFox devs have been taking what users actually like/want and ignoring it. Which is unfortunate.

I'm not actually going to come back here and read anything said back to me. I've already used the hidden method of fixing my problem. My reason for typing this is that I think there should be an ability to add app associations to that list.

This was the original thread <https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1363425#answer-1471931>

In short, to summarize the original issue, one day after clearing my 'recent history' 100% once, gmail.com never ever became autofilled again. I can't get it to show up, no matter what.

I even refreshed firefox, still didn't help, sadly. The only thing left is to uninstall FF but that's a headache I don't want to do. and there's no guarantee that it would work.

Tried disabling all my extensions except for the most obviously fine ones like momentum. Didn't seem to help. <https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1176553> This guy had the EXACT same problem I had. So I followed through these suggestions. Didn't help.

1. Does anyone know what the right keywords for this would be if I want to google others who have similar issues? Looks like I can only just hope other people have the solution. But I've googled things like firefox not suggesting history in omnibox search. Hasn't come up with anything that worked yet.

Over the past couple weeks, I have noted that when I tried to search something on Google, my search automatically sends me to Bing instead.

This really angers me as I had always had my Firefox default search engine set to Google, like it currently says in my Firefox settings. Never had I ever changed my default search engine to Bing.

My question is, how can I have my searches be sent to Google instead of Bing when I always had and currently have my default search engine set to Google?

Hello. Before the "proton" update to the Firefox UI, I had nicely saved space in my browser by putting the navbar up on the same level with the menu bar which is able to make the UI area of Firefox take up less vertical space on my screen. Proton broke this however, so I reverted.

What sort of userchrome.css code do I now need to use in order to put the menu bar and navbar on the same level, like the attached image?

Hello, Can someone please tell me how to stop my "search bar" text from also showing up in my "address bar"? I have search the internet and found all of the following ways that have been suggested that have not worked.

I read that I should set the following to "false" to solve my problem.

1) keyword.enabled 2) browser.fixup.alternate.enabled 3) browser.urlbar.suggest.surches

I have also gone into the settings menu and un-checked everything I could find about suggestions or words or anything else being added to the address bar. The only thing that should show up in and address bar is................you guessed it: AN ADDRESS!  :-) Thanks so much for your help.

I really appreciate the help. Mark

Hi

I use Firefox developer edition. During the latest update Mozilla removed my most loved feature that asked you what you wanted to do with a file before downloading it. I tried to fix this by going into the settings and changing it to always ask for every file type, but many file types are just missing and I am unable to get them to appear. I looked on my other computers and all file types are present there but not on my desktop for some reason. Is there any way to fix this or to get Firefox to ask before downloading again?

Thanks

(I added an img of what the settings look like)
