A few days ago, I was testing a dark theme related add-on, but since uninstalling it, have had this issue where my theme seems to be stuck as the Dark theme that naturally comes with Firefox. When attempting to change my theme in the customize window, mousing over the Default theme does show the proper colors for it, but selecting it still shows the Dark theme colors. I tried examining my Add-ons manager, where it shows that I am still using the Default theme, despite the colors clearly belonging to the Dark theme. I can freely change to the Light theme without issue, but for some reason, the Default one refuses to load properly. I have since tried uninstalling all my Add-ons, deleting my profiles, and uninstalling Firefox before restarting my computer, but to no avail. The Add-on I was examining initially was the Dark Night Mode add-on. Examining the page info, it does say it is not perfect, and their home page says that there are complex issues with getting it to work with Firefox, but I was unable to find more information on this offhand, nor any descriptions of scenarios like mine. I believe the initial settings for my Default theme came from some setting based off my color scheme I have set for my computer themes in general, based off my background, but I was unable to find more information on this at the time. The screenshots I am including are of my Add-on manager showing that I am using the default theme, the customize menu showing the Default theme when highlighted in the drop down menu to change it, and the result that displays when the Default theme is selected. Any ideas on why this issue is occurring, and how to fix it, would be appreciated.

Firefox 63.0 just installed and I see a tracker blocker is enabled by default. However, I will continue using Blur (by Abine) which provides tracker blocking. Will I improve performance by turning the Firefox tracker blocker off?

I also have AdBlock Plus installed with exceptions configured. Does the Firefox ad blocker offer anything that AdBlock Plus does not? It seems logical for me to turn the Firefox ad blocker off to avoid blocking sites where I wish to enable ads.

Sometimes stopping and then immediately restarting what I'm trying to download in Firefox three or four times gets Firefox to download the file to my OneDrive. But in this case, it doesn't. I want to overwrite the old Vivaldi 2.0 installer file in my OneDrive programs folder with the new Vivaldi 2.1 installer file (.EXE) in my OneDrive "Programs" folder. I'm glad in addition to Firefox reaching version 63.0 Stable two days ago, Vivaldi has reached version 2.1 today. Firefox 63 Stable has many bugs that are easy to notice and need fixing sooner rather than later in my experiences and opinion.

As of yesterday videos would only play if asked. installed latest update today 10/26/2018 0630MDT. Now I have to manually stop the videos. I had ALREADY used the link "about:config" on previous versions & that worked. The line "media.autoplay.enabled" is already set to "false". This glitch happened as soon as I installed the latest update.

Since the last couple of days, I see that Firefox holds a lock for places.db for the whole time while Firefox is open. The problem manifests itself when I use alfred workflow to do a search for a firefox bookmark by a keyword. I see that the workflow written in Python crashes with

`sqlite3.OperationalError: database is locked`

When I close Firefox, the script is working fine. When I open it again - the script is not operational again. Tried safe mode - the same result.

This was working fine for years and the symptom points that it was changed recently and now Firefox holds a lock during the whole time it is open. I guess previously the database lock was acquired per bookmark write transaction.

FF 63.0 macOS

Is it a known issue? Why was this change made?

Thanks!

On some websites I visit the icon in the address bar is a grey padlock with an orange warning triangle. These same websites show up as unsecured in Chrome and Edge as well. Although I've been assured by the site owner(s), in this case Tracfone, that any information I enter is safe, I kinda need some reassurances that it is indeed before I enter CC financial information.

I've read the section about mixed passive content but remain unclear.

Thanks.
