I have been a "light theme" user for 15+ years. Since updating to 96.0 today, a dark mode spreading across Firefox has been forced onto me, including:

  • New tab background
  • Background of any tab waiting to load a page
  • Google/Youtube background
  • Settings/add-ons/password menu backgrounds
  • Automatic username/password drop-down background
  • Background of the little box that appears on the bottom-left (the one which shows the URL when you mouse over a link)

I am unhappy with this and wish to have my usual theme back. Can anyone please assist?

(In addition, there is some sort of white border around the current tab, which I do not like)

Anyone know why I can't upload a simple small JPEG image to a Mozilla Support forum post?

I click the "Browse..." button under "Add images (optional)" under the box where the post is typed, select the file and click the "Upload" button and it just sits there saying "Uploading Image.jpg" but the image never uploads or attaches to my post.

I have tried from both Firefox (version 96.0) and Safari (version 15.2), but I have the same problem. I can't find any info about accepted file formats and sizes for these forums, but the image is only 478KB, and is a JPEG, so I can't imagine it's too big or an unaccepted format...

I am on macOS version 11.6.2. The image file is NOT locked.

Any info or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

I accidentally enabled an add-on that basically disables firefox as a search engine and is just, over all, a pain. I've tried removing and disabling it but it always comes back. I looked up how to do it and got an extremely outdated answer. I am using 96.0.2. Thanks.

Walmart website no longer works properly with latest Firefox 96.0.2 64-bit. It works properly with Chrome and other browsers. You can log onto the site and search for products but when you try to add a product to the cart nothing happens. You also can't actually go to the cart. Last time I used Walmart was a few weeks ago and everything worked fine!

I restored Firefox, which left a folder named "Old Firefox Data" on my desktop.

How do I delete it? I can't!

Even if I remove the "read only" property and remove the "deny delete" setting, the damn thing won't go away!

How.Do.I.Kill.The.Folder???

I don't seem to remember Chrome or even Edge making the decision to clutter my Desktop indefinitely for no reason at all...

HI,

Using Firefox ver 96.0.2 (64 bit) Windows 8.1

When starting up Firefox it suddenly has started to search for previous sites but cannot find them. Always before it always started up with selected homepage. I have checked my settings and the only one that from my understanding could have any effect on this is

- Open previous windows and tabs

which I have not selected.

On another computer with windows 11 it works fine.

Best Regards Marten
