I use the Bookmarks Bar extensively. But all the folders are the same color. I would find it much easier to find things quickly if I could change individual folder colors.

Any way to do this?

I'm already using Jscher's excellent UserChrome script to make the folders an attractive yellow, instead of gray. But can this be done for individual foders?

Recently (~2 days ago) I would be scrolling down a website and the text would glitch out into black/white/colorful squares. Now it happens randomly and I don't know what causes it. The glitch would follow as I scroll, and I could refresh the page or highlight portions of the text to get rid of the distortion. I have tried quitting out of Firefox, booting it in safe mode, and uninstall-reinstalling it. None of that has helped. Attached are screenshots of the glitch. It seems to be getting more frequent (?)

I did some system scans/diagnostics to check that it wasn't a hardware issue, and there's no problem on microsoft edge or other applications like discord/steam, so it seems to be a Firefox issue.

Letters (most noticeably x, y, and z) appear to be missing from text in web pages. Running macOS 10.14.6 with Firefox Browser 80.0. Note the image from the drop down menu on this support page. Missing y's, z's, and x is replaced by quotation marks (ie Firefo" Snc).

I have seen this sporadically on a couple of macs that I own. Text seems okay in Safari.

Thank you for your help!

I do web design. And my problem is that I used to click the refresh button in firefox and it would instantly load an updated version of the pages I was working on. But now it does the exact same thing I hate about chrome. It loads pages using cached css and javascript files. And the only way to view the updated websites is to go private mode which is very annoying. Is there an option to get around this? Or it's a software problem?

Hello

I have enabled at Startup the feature (Restore Previous Session)

BUT, what happened is:

I had peacefully closed my 38-tab window so I can access it later, but :( I was downloading some programs and doing some things and each time they kept opening new windows, so more than 3 had opened. And now I am not able to reopen my 38-tab window again.

Now it has been raised to 5 or 6 probably. I am trying not to open new more windows and are using Private browser so I don't need to open more Firefox 'new' (windows).

So is there any way I can happen to restore (previous sessions) for more than just 3, or at least that were open on a certain day ??

All the best! Waiting for your reply.

Printing Problems with Firefox

I have a new HP printer and I am using Firefox from a Windows 10 PC. I am plagued with Paper Mismatch errors when printing emails from Firefox. After a lot of trouble shooting, I have found that this problem seems to be confined to Firefox, as it does not happen when using other browsers, e.g. MS Edge. I have tried resetting all Firefox printer settings and the problem still happens when opening Firefox in Safe Mode.

The print job stops with the error message Paper Size Mismatch after the 1st page, and printing will not continue or even move on to the next job until the error is cancelled from the printer's control panel. This means I have to be working next to the printer and cannot print remotely.

In the printing dialogue box under Printing Preferences, the paper size shows Letter, whereas I am using A4 in the printer, and this is the mismatch causing the problem. I can change the paper size in Printing Preferences from Letter to A4, but I have to do this for every job seperately as the paper size setting always reverts to Letter. This is totally impracticable.

Regretably, I will have to stop using Firefox unless there is a solution. Can anyone help me to change the paper size setting to always default to A4, please? Thanks in anticipation.

I can no longer successfully click on online links to open certain file types that I use. All I get is a page of garbage in Firefox. I can't delete the types because they are not there, but clicking on them does not ask me what action I want - just opens the garbage page. Filetypes happen to be .mscz (musescore) and.ove (overture) and I had working associations until the latest update.

Hi! I have got a big problem that took hours of my patient attention, but nothing helped(or I have done something incorrectly).

I am unable to play most videos on the internet. For example, i can watch video in youtube, but when i play stream on the same platform, youtube complains that currently my firefox browser does not recognize any html5 video formats.

Plugins installed: OpenH264, Shockwave Flash, and... while writing this question i've found that there's also widevine cdm that i tried earlier to install in my browser, 'cause by default in my Ubuntu 20.04.1 LTS there's no such extension.

I tried this to install widevine. Maybe I have done something in the way it shouldn't. 1)https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1207502 2)Reinstall firefox 3)Trying disabling any combination of installed extensions to find the "wrong".
