For the last several FF versions, although I choose a light theme, the pull downs/menus always wind up dark with white text. It also shows up when I am editing options in FF itself. How do I stop this? I want a light background with black/dark text.

I am still trying to get Firefox to download and install ESR updates with users that never use Firefox. I have GPOs in place and if I open Firefox it will update obviously. If I open Firefox for 5 seconds and close it I do see that the update downloads and eventually installs. I saw an article that states the "Requirements to Run" and wanted to clarify. See below "Firefox must have a default profile, and it must run using that profile at least once after the feature is enabled." Does this requirement mean that Firefox will never update unless it is opened at least once? Why is this a requirement if so. I have Chrome and Edge updating with ease without ever opening it. If I am missing something please help me. Thank you! I can provide anything else you need for clarification.

Hello,

I want to permanently remove these notifications by whatever means necessary.

This is the same issue that was[[ previously discussed here.|https://support.mozilla.org/no/questions/1237229]] previously discussed here. However, the chosen solution is only a temporary workaround, I am only interested in a permanent fix. I have dom.webnotifications.enabled set to false yet these notifications still appear. Is it possible to disable them using a policies.json file?

Hello, this is more a change request for additional functionality than a problem, if there's a better place to post this please suggest it. This applies to Firefox (for PC) as well as for Android, may also apply to other versions w the same feature but I do not use those flavors so cannot verify.

My request is to be able to remove or change site vendors of the story suggestions in my home page; several publishers are fine for me but a few are ones I will either not read due to personal objections to their content or practices, or are simply not interesting. I wish to be able to customize the sources of these suggestions, but specifically block some publishers such as the Atlantic.

Thank you Mozilla and the Firefox team! Long time user and fan, Bryce

I used safe mode to find out if an extension was causing a problem. In safe mode there was no problem. I searched for the extension that is causing it. I went into 'troubleshoot information" for the list of installed extensions but there was no way to disable or remove any of them to find the cause. (The list of extensions in the settings menu showed only one extension and 2 pre-intalled plug ins)

When I go to settings/General/Default Zoom if I check zoom text only, on my facebook page why does it enlarges the the images & have no effect on the text? If I use the device settings +/- to reduce the the image I can get the font to a readable size but text on the left & right side of the page are still gone from the viewing area. Increasing obviously has no better results.

OK, I just tried unchecking zoom text only and it restored it to normal. I'm glad it's back to where was but the way it's listed in the setting seems confusing. If I check "zoom text only" that is the outcome I would expect,

When I first searched for help it returned 0 results, which is why I am posting it.

My boss uses Firefox and said he is having a repeat issue with his browser. The issue is that every few weeks Firefox undoes a setting that he has and we cannot figure out why. It could be when you update to a new version.


What happens is that he has file extensions for PDF and ICS files set to automatically open and instead they change to download instead. He then has to download one of each file type and manually change the setting back to auto-open. Again every 3-4 weeks this resets to download.

Firefox is hanging on to an ancient dead email address, which it uses automatically when replying in on line forms where I don't have the option of filling one in (form won't send because account is dead), or trying to get into dropbox, etc. (identifies me as not having access under the old email address because access was set up for my current email address).

 I have looked here but don't find the places to go as described at all:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/change-primary-email-address-firefox-accounts.

Where do I find Firefox's stored email address that it uses for functions as described above?

FYI, I use Thunderbird for email, but not Firefox. I have my proper email address identified as primary in Thunderbird, and the dead address and all emails completely deleted as far as I can find them. Am on Win 7; Firefox 105.0.1 at present, but this has been a problem for a long time. Thank you. Dave
