Somehow, the prefers-color-scheme: dark media query does not seem to behave correctly in my browser. I am using Firefox 89.0.2 on Windows 10 21H1 and even though I have set the system theme to dark (which Firefox's System Theme adapts to, the browser UI is dark), websites which usually adapt to it (like YouTube when set to follow the device theme) do not do so and are using the light theme regardless. This issue persists even in troubleshooting mode, so it does not seem to be related to any add-on I have installed.

Testing the same websites on Firefox Nightly (91.0a1) and Developer Edition (90.0b12), they behave as expected, adapting to my system's dark theme. The same had been the case when I had been using Firefox 88 (where it did not work as expected), while websites on Nightly and Developer Edition (versions 90 and 89, respectively) did behave as expected.

Is there some fix for this issue, some setting that is supposed to be tweaked, or can a fix be expected in an upcoming release?

How do I get rid of this crap? I either select a crappy system theme and everything turns a blinding white, or go back to the theme I usually use where everything suddenly is dark. How do I remove darkmode while retaining my favorite theme? I don't want dark mode and I certainly do not want to be blinded either. There must be a useless setting added to the about:config that I can disable.

Thank you.

My Sessions and Session Boss know I have all my tabs open presently. I can't see the tabs & I can't right click a bookmark and see a 2nd tab open. I had the tabs at the top and just under the bookmarks bar. Now it is just one long blank bar. I disabled and then re-enabled proton, which is the worst upgrade experience ever. I changed to a simple theme, still no tabs. I downloaded the previous version 88, but it will start a new profile. I just want where I was 2 hours ago. I'll attach an image of the left upper screen with the blank tab bar.

I run FF on both a Windows machine and a MacBook Pro. On the MBP the browser does not save my tabs, despite "restore previous session" being selected. I do not have this problem on the Windows machine.

I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the browser but it has not made a difference.

I'm running the latest version of the browser and the OS is Big Sur.

So I have been using a theme for Firefox for some time now, years, called Abstract Electric, makes the tool bar dark with a nice little streak of lightning or something. The tabs are dark but the drop down menus used to be white with black writing. Now this morning there was an update to Firefox and everything stayed the same except the drop down menus are now black with white writing. Can't figure out how to keep my theme which I like but put the drop down menus back to white with dark writing. I only want to change the drop down menus, not the color of the tabs or anything else, just want to put the drop down menus back to black on white

How to stop the search from jumping to the address bar when typing on Firefox Home

I have Firefox home with a search engine as home page, but since the update to 89, when I try to type into the search box, it jumps to the address bar. This is very annoying. Can it be fixed? I do not want to use the address bar this way. I found a help that said to open the application menu and click "customize" but there is no "customize" option there. In the attached photo, I clicked in the search box to place the cursor there, but as soon as I began typing, it jumped to the address bar. This has never happened to me before in the 15 years I have used Firefox. I am a recent convert to Linux (about 1 year now) and am using Mint 19.3, Cinnamon 4.4.8, if that makes a difference.

After the update to 89.0 the Shortcuts have taken an 'visual upgrade' that makes all the images chosen for them half as small as they need to be because they need to have a 'cute little grey border' almost as big as the image between it and the corners of the square.

I have twenty four shortcuts, that I differentiate at a glance through the images without having to stop to read the text on each one and this stupid change is really roasting my mellows, I have taken a look and haven't found any option to revert it to the previous look, anyone knows any way to do it or do I have to install the previous firefox update and stop updating and give up security updates to save myself from this stupid change?

Good afternoon. My Firefox has been updated to the new version but I noticed that the font size in my bookmarks dropdown menu has increased. I would prefer to make it smaller as it used to all fit in one column without the need to scroll. Could someone tell me how, or if this can be done with the new version? Thanks and hope to hear back soon.

My firefox installed a new update, 89, and now my tabs are missing, except that the active tab is floating down at the center bottom of the screen. i can still navigate with keyboard shortcuts, but i don't know how many i have open, what they are, and personally DO NOT like navigating with shortcuts if i don't have to.

why is it necessary to keep messing with tabs? weren't they just fine below the address bar back in the day? How is ruining the user experience worth whatever was even trying to be done here?

image is how my firefox looks right now

The fact that this new version always puts focus in the URL field is bad enough, but it now refuses to use the web search field for any searches. My Search settings are set to "Add search bar in toolbar" and Home settings are set to show the "Web Search" field. In about:config, keyword.enabled is set to false.

Everything typed into the Web Search field goes directly to the URL, but since using the URL for searching is turned off, a search there will always fail.

This is a new "feature" that arrived with the latest update.

Any ideas how to fix this would be much appreciated. I want to search from the Web Search field and do not want the URL to be used for anything but resolving actual URLs.

Thanks in advance.
