I have Firefox 96.0.1. As of this morning, images will no longer load on any websites. The only thing that has changed since yesterday is that I followed some advice from the Washington Post on how to prevent scam emails. I have spent nearly two hours searching for and following advice to restore images on Firefox, but nothing has worked. I need more direct assistance!

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?

I have Firefox on my laptop (Win10 Pro) and on my Android phone; just bought a new office computer that is running Win11. My laptop has a long list of bookmarks and a dozen or more open tabs. I would like to get this same setup on the new computer. I thought I followed directions but since it does not work I guess I have missed something important.

Go to the menu in upper right, then the > next to my account, which brings up Manage Account, Syncing, several other items, then a list of tabs on my phone, another list of tabs on my laptop, and a third list of tabs on an old computer that no longer exists. It has been syncing for 2-3 hours without evident progress. I would like to delete the dead computer to avoid confusion but see no way to do it. Mainly I want to sync with the laptop or, failing that, import the bookmarks from it.

I also copied the FF profile from the old computer into the new one. The files and directory structures are identical but FF cannot read the profile. I do not know what to do about any of this.

I HATE the new look. I've hated it ever since they smoothed everything out, and tabs just look like some sort of continuous amorphous mess. I want the lines between tabs so it is easier to distinguish between them. I know that changing the "browser.proton.enabled" to false gets rid of this garbage new look, but for some reason, whenever I switch this over, the setting doesn't save. Every time I reopen FireFox, it reverts back to this ABSOLUTELY TERRIBLE layout. (can you tell I hate it? FIX IT MOZILLA!!!!)

Please help...?

Thanks!

I tend to share images to a lot of my friends and groups through discord, while using firefox as my browser of choice. However, when copying images from firefox, it seems to copy images twice. Ive read that its due to something about one with and without color profiles. Is there a way to disable this? Its not a major deal, just annoying.

Over the years, I have become dependent on a bookmarks toolbar that shows only icons, but will show the text with a mouse hover, using the following in userchrome:

/* The lines below allow the bookmarks toolbar to show only icons */

#personal-bookmarks .bookmark-item > .toolbarbutton-text { display:none !important; }
#personal-bookmarks .bookmark-item > .toolbarbutton-icon {
 margin:0px 0px 0px -4px !important;
 padding:0px !important;
}

The upgrade to Firefox 96 broke this. I considered spending an hour or two deleting the text from all of the bookmarks on my bookmarks toolbar, but I depend on the mouse-hover tooltip with the text to remind me of some important but not all-that-frequently-used bookmarks.

Any help appreciated.
