I open a new private window, go to a website such as Wikipedia, and use the in site search bar to search for say "dogs". Then close all private windows and all other Firefox windows, and re open a new regular Firefox window, both my search for "Wikipedia" is remembered by the search bar, and my search for "dogs" is remembered by Wikipedia. Clearing my cookies and deleting my browsing history does nothing to fix this. Reinstalling Firefox has also done nothing to fix this. Every bit of information i can find on the topic says Firefox's private browsing mode deletes cookies and history upon closing all windows, but this is not the case for me. My temporary patch is to remove all address bar suggestions from everywhere, but i only want private browsing mode to function as intended. Thank you for reading all this and i hope you can assist.

I updated to the latest version yesterday and now my Bookmarks ,History and a few other things have gone into Dark Mode. I really don't care for it and have tried looking into my settings but I see nothing that I can do to go back to the normal white. I am using Windows 11 on an HP All In One Desktop computer. Is there anything I can do to revert back to the way it was? Thanks for any reply.

Well, even the pulldown is not working here. None of the solutions for the garbled text works for me (and now that pulldown option isn't always working) and I am about to permanently change to Safari after years of being a Firefox advocate and user. Without any way to actually ask an actual person about this question/problem and not being a programmer I am exceedingly frustrated and disappointed. I do have to agree with the commenter who said we shouldn't have to go through this just to get a website to display. I've tried several times to upload an image but frankly I feel like just giving up

I am a retired person trying to use Firefox on a Linux os computer i OWN. To day, Firefox has become unstable. I see in my settles that an "enterprise" now controls my copy of firefox.

How can I eliminate this obstruction?

Most discussion of this problem discusses Windows os and is useless to me.

My os is LinuxMint 19 (Tara)

Please advise!

Hello folks,

I'm looking to upgrade my FF browser as much as possible, but I need to run Mac OS X 10.9.5 (for legacy software) on my older iMac.

Currently running "78.15.0esr (64-bit)" and the "About" window says "Firefox is up to date" and "You are currently running on the esr update channel" (Not sure what that means)

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you.

My C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Temp folder fills up with Firefox update folders called "MozillaBackgroundTask{numberletterstring}", a new one of which appears every 7 hours (except when computer is off because I changed the Update setting after this issue started so the "Allow Firefox to automatically install updates" has the "when Firefox is not running" unchecked). Every day I delete the previous day's folders. This is annoying. It started within the last month. I don't use Firefox as my default browser. This only happens on my Windows 7 Pro laptop, not on my Windows 10 laptop. Can anyone tell me why this has started happening and how to stop these files keep accumulating please?

Just to advise after the recent update to Mozilla Firefox v96.0.1 there was a problem with Internet connection not then being available from Firefox.

For extra privacy I have Win 10x64 Pro set to the free Cloudflare free use DNS settings of 1.1.1.1 and 1.0.0.1 and this has worked just fine for several months now.

However, since the update as above, Firefox could no longer connect to the Internet.

However, my other Browsers: SeaMonkey and Tor worked just fine.

For security reasons, I never use Chrome, Edge or Safario, as they are basically insecure.

Thinking there was a router problem, I reset that with the pin through the reset hole at the rear, and rebooted the PC.

No further ahead, and I knew it was not a Malware problem either, as I use very good AntiMalware Software.

I switched off the fiber box for 10 minutes, restarted it, no change, Firefox still could not connect.

Aha, a look through the Firefox Settings > Network and checked the DNS setting, which had been default set by Firefox to "CIRA Canadian Shield (By Default)" - That was NOT the setting I had placed into the Win10 Operating System.

Cloudflare was the second option there, so I selected that.

I didn't try the third option of "Next DNS".

Saved the setting (Option 2 Cloudflare)

Rebooted the PC, and no further troubles.

That CIRA Canadian Shield (Default) by Firefox was a trap I hadn't run into.

Just thought you may wish to put this in an appropriate place, as a warning to others.

Experienced with all Windows O/S since 1993, every style of O/S Microsoft has had available, plus much other Software.

This is the first unexpected problem ever I've had with Mozilla Firefox.

I run this PC 24/7, never turned off except for a reboot.

I can run some Firefox 25+ Windows and a total of over 150 Tabs, Run SeaMonkey and Tor with over 100 Tabs between them, and can still do other work.

Pleaty of RAM and SSD's for Operating Systems, backup to HDD's for longevity.

Still using 20+ year old HDD's still good, but they don't thermally cycle (Always on except for reboots), and I am interested to see how long before a failure of one of them =- I just stor DATA on these old HDD's (Copy from elsewhere, so it doesn't matter if I have a failure of an old HDD.

As many here have said, the latest Firefox update has reversed many web pages and menus from white-with-black text to black-with-white text. I can't believe that Mozilla really meant to do this. This is very annoying. It would be one thing to offer it as an option, but to just jam it to us without warning is plain obnoxious. I did do the about:config color-scheme override but that only fixed my Firefox search page. Everything else is still black. Thanks a lot.

Firefox does not display pages on linux mint cinnamon 20.2, not even internal ones like "about:config" wenn entered into the address field. There is no error message and the page remains empty. I managed to display only a few internal pages with links from the menu like: "Add-ons and Themes" or "More Troubleshooting Information". When I change the address now (when the firefox logo is displayed on the left) I can access other internal pages like "about:config" but no web pages. I tried several settings that I found in the forums, but not success: Connection settings hardware acceleration network.dns.disableIPv6 network.dns.disablePrefetch Troubleshoot mode

Chromium browser works fine.
