Firefox 102esr has almost every menu, popup and screen in dark mode - which I find extremely difficult to read, given I'm antique.

I've tried all the modes like light, system etc nothing seems to fix it.

Am I going to need a stack of css code to fix it - code for each and everything I want to set back to light, or is there a setting to achieve this?

How to prevent 'opened files' (temporary files) saved in the Downloads folder

The latest version of Firefox is giving me a nightmare. Previously, when I downloaded something, an alert would automatically pop-up asking me whether I want to save the file or just open it. For those files which I only want to open them once, I would click Open. Then, I would either save the file into another format or copy the content to somewhere else and be done with it. Those 'Opened' file were just temp files which would be deleted automatically after some time. But since the previous update of Firefox, the option to 'open downloaded files as temp files' seems to have been completely gone. I've already manually change the settings for all types of files back to 'Always ask' but the files I 'opened once' are no longer just temp files but permanently saved in the Downloads folder. I personally seldom save things in C drive. Today I occasionally opened the Downloads folder and was astonished to see that all the 'temp files' I opened last month are all saved in there. It's very annoying. Why should I even be wasting my time to clear these temp files manually? The only reason I've been using Firefox over Chrome for these many years is because Chrome always forces me to save all the downloaded files to my local drive and doesn't provide me the option to open them as temp files. If Firefox has become just like Chrome, forcing me to save all unwanted files to my local drive, what's the point for me to continue using Firefox?

I had to add Javascript because one of my accounts need Javascript to open. After installing Javascript and allowing for all to be 'true', I still get this message when I try to open a 'show blocked content' in my email.

"The address wasn’t understood

Firefox doesn’t know how to open this address, because one of the following protocols (javascript) isn’t associated with any program or is not allowed in this context.

   You might need to install other software to open this address."

I never had any problem before installing Javascript. Thanks for any solutions.

I'm a web developer and I've been using the web developer Responsive Design Mode for some testing.

Unfortunately the default resolution is 320x480 and while I do occasionally test this resolution (it's our bare minimal mobile resolution) it's obnoxious to have to always choose the drop down menu to change the resolution every-single-time!

I've already searched through about:config settings for queries such as 320 and 480 separately.

So: how do I change the Responsive Design Mode default resolution?

Hi, I'm a very happy long time Firefox user. I use the extension "Dark Background and Light Text" so that my webpages are much more easy on my eyes. The extension works everywhere but in "support.mozilla.org".

How is it possible to have dark theme in Mozilla's support pages too?

For years I've set the background display color in about:config to a medium gray, #CCCCCC. Main purpose was to change the background color of the about:blank page, which is my home page and my new tab page.

Note I am not overriding colors; #CCCCCC only showed up as the bgcolor for about:blank. Occasionally websites which forgot to specify a background color would show up with a medium gray background, a minor inconvenience and a hint their coding was not so great.

Just realized my background color selection for about:blank isn't working anymore. The background color of the about:blank page is white. Not sure when it changed. I failed to notice when the medium gray disappeared because I have been reflexively pressing the dim screen button. I have vision issues and need to avoid a white screen.

There was a question in 2021 about the about:blank page bgcolor turning white which was archived but does not look resolved.

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1344438

Does about:blank now specify a bgcolor, overriding my about:config setting? I still have browser.display.background_color set to #CCCCCC. Do I need to change another value for about:blank now? Thanks for your help.

I'm on Windows 10. Every time I open up a new tab, I cannot see either the saved links or bookmarks. It's like they have been wiped from the page. I can still access the bookmarks. I've tried the about:newtab and about:home fixes but neither have worked. None of my extensions are doing it, either.

Thanks for your time.

Hello,

I use Firefox since 14 years and I have a lot of bookmarks and folders, so can you do something to filter the folders in the "Manage bookmarks/Library"? My idea is to apply the word that I enter in the "Search Bookmarks" to all folders, can you add this option?

Example if I have a folder with the name "Hello The World", I would like this folder appear in my research if I enter the word "Hello" in the "Search Bookmarks" (Of course I also want to see the bookmark as currently, but I also want to see the corresponding folder(s)).

I have a problem accessing articles in the New York Times web page. I have a Basic subscription and I am signed in. When I try to read an article, the New York Times site thinks I do not have a subscription and that I have used up all my free articles. If I use the Chrome browser, it works fine, but I do not want to use Chrome. I use FireFox for all my browsing. I have deleted cache and cookies. Tried the "Private Windows" too. I have logged out and back in. I have rebooted the machine (an Alienware 17 R5) and closed and opened Firefox. The "agents" I chatted with say this is a browser problem as everything is working fine on their side and it works in Chrome. Can anyone help me out?

Hi.

After some time of trial and error I finally came to the conclusion that having the 'youtube.com' tab and 'antenaplay.ro' (tv broadcast app) tabs opened prevents my computer from auto-entering sleep mode. Even if the streams on the 2 tabs are paused.

I don't have this issue on Chrome, I can leave the tabs opened there and my PC can enter sleep mode no problem. The thing is I want to keep using Mozilla because I got used to it and because it's not based on Chromium.

If you need more information just say so. Thanks for the help in advance! Peter.
