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)

When I was using Firefox 2 months ago, there was an extension called "Makoto Shinkai's Newtab" in Mozilla's extension site. Even though developer also supports Firefox, sadly I can't find it anymore. Is there any way to find out what happened to that extension?

Webpages saved as PDFs using FF are very large files compared to the same webpage saved as a PDF using Safari. FF will create a 2-3 page pdf that is over 3 MB of data, while Safari saves the same pdf as 325KB. I never noticed this to be the case in the distant past but as my available storage space started shrinking rapidly on my MacBook I realized this might be the culprit.

I don't know when these large pdfs files started with FF but as I reviewed some similar files from several years ago, the same type of 2-3 page pdf in FF was in the KB, not MB of data. Can anyone help me understand why this is happening? Is there a setting that should be changed so these pdfs are not so bloated in size?

I am still using FF 88.0.1 having not made the leap to the newer versions of FF because of all the bad reviews. That said, I have not seen any info which indicates that FF scaled down pdf file sizes in the newer versions of FF.

In FF's Preferences pane PDFs are set to open in FF. Would it help reduce the file sizes if I changed that so they open in Mac's default application which I assume is Preview? I don't know if that's what the default preference was years ago when FF pdfs were much smaller files, or if changing that would make no difference at all.

Also, for what it's worth, I previously disabled FF's new-ish Print Preview Interface in about:config because it was consistently overriding the preset positions I set for my headers and footers, resulting in them being cut off the printed pages, however, the bloated pdfs were a problem long before FF introduced the Print Preview Interface feature.

Any suggestions on how to reduce the size of pdfs that FF is creating? I don't have and don't want to get a 3rd party application like Adobe Acrobat to deal with this, when I can simply use Safari as my browser. Thank you.

I use a 2021 Macbook Pro with all updated software. I consider Firefox my main web browser.

I have a Weebly website that I can always log into with Safari. But with Firefox, every few months or so, I'll get a message that the email address I use to log on is incorrect. The message usually lasts 2-3 weeks or so, and then, it mysteriously goes away and I can log in again (for a while). It has happened four times. Right now I'm in week 3 of not being able to log on with Firefox.

I have no idea if this is connected or not, but it all began shortly after I started using the Firefox Delay extension. I don't use it any more and the problem still happens, so it is a big question mark.

I only used the delay extension to log onto two websites - my weebly site and also my Craigslist ads. I've only had problems with these two accounts since then. I opened new accounts on Craigslist after stopping the delay extension - but I still have trouble with Craigslist email. I get emails from customers answering my ads but when I reply, I get a message that it was undeliverable, even though I think my reply was in fact, delivered. In both cases, the problem is with my email.

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!
