Hi. Since FF v103 it seems, when working with a VPN, and then trying to use also a browser extension VPN, it either does not or does not connect until after 45s. Before it was immediate. It works in all other browsers (incl FF before v103). So this is a recent change in FF that harms normal VPN connections. I found out by trial and error, that changing the port of the VPN extension to 443 and disabling and enabling the extension and going back to v103 from v103.0.1 helped, but that should not be like that. So something has been broken in the latest v103.0.1 - please kindly look into it. Thank you!

My Windows Task Scheduler contains an entry called "Firefox Default Browser Agent". If I delete it, it returns. If I disable it, it re-enables itself. How do I NUKE this permanently?

I already have telemetry and automatic updates both turned off.

A related problem is that the About Firefox window keeps saying "Firefox is being updated by another instance", even though I always "Dismiss" the prompt to download the latest version. (I'm using v107.0.)

Hi All,

I'm trying to change the appearance of the "Bookmarks Toolbar / Chevron >>" popup menu, which (after version 88) has turned bright white with extra padding between menu items and rounded corners.

I'm a fan of system menus, so I would really like the popup menu to look like the regular bookmarks menu from the top menu bar (see attached image).

I also like the subtle chiseled vertical line separating the favicons and the descriptions, and the 1px gray border around the menu, plus square corners.

I took a guess at some of the variable names, but only the menu's background color has changed.

Maybe someone knows how to change other attributes such as border color, radius, menu-item-height, padding, and add in the 3D vertical column line?

Thank you!

Here is my first attempt at the code...

#PersonalToolbar menupopup {
  /* Text color */
  --menu-color: #000 !important;
  --arrowpanel-color: #000 !important;
  --panel-color: #000 !important;
  /* Background color */
  --menu-background-color:  #f0f0f0 !important;
  --arrowpanel-background: #f0f0f0 !important;
  --panel-background: #f0f0f0 !important;
  /* Border color (if any) */
  --menu-border-color: #606060 !important;  /* not working on boomarks toolbar menu */
  --menu-border: 1px !important;  /* not working on boomarks toolbar menu */
  --menu-border-radius: 0px !important;  /* not working on boomarks toolbar menu */
}
/*** Tighten up drop-down/context/popup menu spacing (8 Sep 2021) ***/
menupopup:not(.in-menulist) > menuitem, 
menupopup:not(.in-menulist) > menu {
  padding-block: 0px !important; /* reduce to 3px, 2px, 1px or 0px as needed */ 
  min-height: unset !important; /* v92.0 - for padding below 4px */
}

I have been using Firefox 56.0.2 on Windows 7 for years safely. Until yesterday. We had one of those mini powerouts, that caused problems.

My hard drive is failing and Firefox will no longer fully load, it tries bless it, but some FF files must be in the damaged sectors of the hard drive. It then locks the system. Using Chrome works fine. But some logins/passwords/bookmarks had to be changed very recently and are not stored in the chrome browser yet. I hate chrome so use FF as the main browser.

I'm thinking that if I can install a fresh copy of FF 56.0.2 in a separate folder, a separate 2nd copy of FF, and then copy yesterday mornings backed up FF profile (before the crash) I could at least copy over all the bookmarks etc to Chrome so I can have my logins etc back.

This mornings backup failed to backup some FF files, all others were fine. Firefox worked fine yesterday but failed to launch this morning.

Please help save my sanity. I know I have to move to W 10, but cannot on this computer.

I have 4 different AMD machines in a wired, Windows 7 Home network. One is a print server and has 2 Canon inkjet Printers. All machines can print to both printers from all applications except Firefox (Latest version). 1 client machine can print to both printers from Firefox, another can print to one printer and the last cannot print from Firefox at all.

I have varied the defaults and refreshed and re-installed Firefox but there is no change. The Saved Settings for printing have been cleared.

There a large number of "Modified print settings" on the machine that can print from Firefox to both printers. This setting is absent in the other machines.

Is there a way in which I can get all the 3 client machines to print from the web on both printers?

Any help would be very much appreciated.

Thanks very much, in hope

I just updated from Firefox 96.0.3 to Firefox 97. When I try to print I get the Firefox preview, even though I have print.tab_modal.enabled set to false. Please fix it so that I can get the print system dialog without going via the Firefox preview. Note that I have now reverted to Firefox 96.0.3 and won't update from this unless the problem is fixed.

I had two Firefox windows open. One had 100+ tabs open, the other had around 5 open. Like a klutz I accidentally closed the window with the 100+ tabs open instead of the other window. Now when Firefox restarts it opens the version with the 5 tabs.  :-( I read about lost tabs in Firefox. I have found a file with the 100+ tabs in it. It is called: upgrade.jsonlz4-20221007134813. But what do I do next to restore Firefox to restart with the 100+ tabs version? Thanks.

The update Firefox 100.0.1 ( or 2 ) has a bug: Firefox doesn't "see" the Fritz!Powerline ( LAN over Powerline adaptors ) and thus I can't enter the Fritz!Box. Even typing the IP address of the Fritz!Box doesn't help, because there is "no connecting" beyond the PC. The hardware works, so I can send and receive emails, but I can't access the internet via the firfox browser. Stepping back to 99.0.1, I had to "create a new profile" and all my previous ( before the update to 100.0.1 ) settings were lost, all bookmarks vanished ... I am rather angry, you know? This mail I'm sending via my notebook, as I this connects via 100 Mbit Lan network from an other room and as I had to "register" just to be able to complain ...
