I do not have any missing buttons. The display is dark, and it is the same on all apps. Also, I have a Mac

I just d/l the latest firefox figured it was a fix for the problem. but it is not. The colors are still dark, minus other lighter and brighter colors.

I cannot see where I have to click to write.

Help is needed asap.

It worked for the lettering. Now I have to make the letters lighter, they are very black, and so are the picture or images.

What do I do to hang those settings? Thanks

I fixed the dark on top.

but the pictures are overly dark, and the lettering is very black.

I need help to clear this up. It is awful. I need the pictures to be seen. Thanks

If you start Firefox in Firefox Safe Mode and click Continue in Safe Mode instead of check marking Reset toolbars and controls, does the problem occur in Safe Mode?

If you start Firefox in Firefox Safe Mode and click '''Continue in Safe Mode''' instead of check marking Reset toolbars and controls, does the problem occur in Safe Mode?

Hi Chris.......Yes it's still the same with 'continue in safe mode'. I can only see the random number image on this page by saving it and then opening it.

What if you create a new Firefox profile? Does the problem occur in the new profile? See Profile Manager - Create, remove, or switch Firefox profiles

I was just going to reinstall when I read the above post. I already have tried installing an outdated Firefox, but am still plagued with the same issues. I have a Mac and the problems persist.

The pictures are so dark I can hardly see it, and nothing works as it should. Blackened lettering and more.

There must be a fix and someone from FF should help.

If a new profile doesn't help and re-installing didn't work, the problem must be outside of Firefox somewhere. Are you using a firewall of anti-virus program, that might be interfering?
