Hi: I've used Firefox for years without trouble and I've even given money! However, I think the last update has prevented my banking site from operating correctly. In Bill payment you choose who you want to pay and fill in the amount. This still works. I move to the month, day, year boxes. If I click, say, on the month box I get a dropdown but selecting the month nothing happens. Ditto with day and year. The day box shows 1 and the year shows 202 and nothing changes when using the drop downs. Can't manually fill in the boxes. At first I thought it was my bank but they said there were no reported problems - they would! So tried Brave and Edge. Both worked perfectly. Tried it on my laptop rather than desktop and same problem using Firefox showed up. I hadn't fiddled with any Firefox settings. What to do? Thanks Donald

Since the recent update to Firefox 100 the only usable theme seems to be the light theme.

When using other themes, for example the dark theme, some areas of Firefox become unreadable. For example the tab bar:

https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2022-05-13-11-36-27-973853.png

How can I change these colors individually, so I can use the dark theme again but still see and read my open tabs?

This is a maddening bug! I know it started with the recent update to Firefox 100 because the behavior only started AFTER updating and I did not change ANY settings in Windows 10, let alone any related to the keyboard. Please fix this bug!!

I double-checked this setting for Backspace key navigation. Here's what I did:

(1) In a new tab, type or paste about:config in the address bar and press Enter/Return. Click the button accepting the risk.

(2) In the search box in the page, type or paste browser.backspace_action and pause while the list is filtered

When I did this I saw the value was set to 2 (do nothing) so something else is causing this bug!

I suggest you open it individually. Thank you. It's a function that doesn't exist locally.

And to give you another suggestion, I would like to be able to register the extensions manually for Applications. There are times when Firefox doesn't detect it. The user If there's a file called zip, I wish I could save the zip file and enter it. Manual input function.

When I try to load a png file with transparent background into firefox 35.0.1, the background appears black. I've already tried Transparent standalone images add-on with no results, including https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/transparent-standalone-image/reviews/?utm_source=firefox-browser&utm_medium=firefox-browser&utm_content=addons-manager-reviews-link and https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/transparent-standalone-images/reviews/?utm_source=firefox-browser&utm_medium=firefox-browser&utm_content=addons-manager-reviews-link

I also look at the previous question with the same name, from 2015: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1044582#question-reply

Unfortunately after trying to follow every step there, I have the same question as the OP did on 2/3/2015, except that the extension he recommends ( Old Default Image Style: https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/old-default-image-style/ ) and the other two recommended by cor-el ( Transparent standalone images: https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/transparent-standalone-imag/ and Custom Standalone Image Backgrounds: https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/custom-image-backgrounds/ ) are all dead links in 2022.

I would appreciate some help with this.

Hi!

I am not sure, if Mozilla is the reason, or Facebook is the reason. But since I can't get any help from FB, I'd like to check also here.

At first, I thought that the problem is on my side, since I am using ICC profiles and maybe I did something wrong. But It is not the problem on my side. I tried with an original jpg file, directly from my camera.

So, when I upload JPG to the Facebook, color of the image changes. This happens only if I publish it directly to my FB wall. If I go to FB "publishing tools" (on FB pages), everything works normal. If I upload the same photo via for example Chrome or Vivaldi, everything works, even if I upload directly to the FB wall.

So the problem occurs only If I upload from Mozilla (I have latest version 100) to the FB wall. Not via "publishing tools" on FB page. But problem is the same if I publish on my FB business page wall. So I assume that the problem is on FB side, that somehow renders files differently then via their Publishing tools. But I am allowing that Mozilla does something to them via the interface.

There must be some problem with Mozilla too, since all images work OK with Chrome or Vivaldi. So, something in relation of Mozilla - Facebook wall.

Currently I just use Chrome for uploading to FB, but I don't want that.

Not sure what to do now. FB does not reply, maybe Mozilla can help or check? I attached a sample photos, to see difference. Here is my Mozilla gfx.color profile too: https://i.ibb.co/CWRHWnh/6.jpg

Good day.

My use case is the following. I use Firefox Developer Edition for developing websites. Usually the development happens on a certain part of the page. Most of the times it is not on the top of the page, so you have to scroll down to it.

Sometimes when the page is refreshed a jump to the top happens. So then I need to scroll down again. It takes a lot of time and concentration away if it happens dozens of times a day.

It often happens after I did some changes to the files on the page. It usually does not happen when I refresh the page a couple of times (when I purpously want to reproduce this problem).

I did try running Firefox in Safe mode, but it didn't help.

What can be done to fix this problem on my side? Is this a bug in Firefox itself?

Certain sites (the latest being https://azgaar.github.io/Fantasy-Map-Generator/, which i've downloaded successfully from before) cannot be downloaded from - firefox gives the error of "[site] attempted to automatically download multiple files. The site could be broken or trying to store spam files on your device."

I know these downloads aren't spam or malicious, but when I hit the "Allow" button to give permission, there's no change. The downloads remain blocked and new downloads are blocked.

I've turned off my antivirus shields to see if that was causing it, but to no results.

I sincerely thank you for your time and know that you're quite busy, and look forward to hearing back about this issue.

Hi Windows 10 21h2 Firefox 100.0 When pasting images from the clipboard into a website (atlassian confluence for example) firefox uses a generic image name (grafik.png) instead of the actual filename. This started to happend a few weeks ago. I was not able to find a demo page where this can be tested, other browsers don't have this issue.

Anyone having similiar issues or an idea how to fix it?

Hello,

It got really hard to debug with Firefox Developer Edition devtools when inspector tab keeps disappearing while debugger point is hit.

Using HTMLElement link from console doesn't return Inspector

Pressing F12 and F12 again helps, but then again have to reach the break point which is frustrating.

Ever since the Firefox upgrade to v100.0 (Win10 64-bit), Firefox locks up whenever it spawns a new, external process. This happens most frequently whenever the website to which I'm connected (doesn't matter which one) attempts to print or read in a file on the hard drive. This is especially true for email sites, where these functions are most often called from within FireFox. No error code appears and it's not immediately evident that Firefox even has an issue. It just becomes completely unresponsive. I have to call up the Task Manager and kill the Firefox tasks to exit. When I reinvoke Firefox, it restarts the tabs I had open at the time I killed it. This never happened before v100.0, and does not happen in any other browser. I have a friend with a Windows 10 machine who has exactly the same problem.

Any suggestions?

Last year someone asked about 2 Firefox for Android applications; I just had two different copies of Firefox installed on my Win 10 laptop (one in an attempt by Microsoft to upgrade to Win 11) where all my data was in the old app named 'Mozilla Firefox') while the newly installed app was just 'Firefox' and had none of my data. I did not attempt that new install, it seems Microsoft did ?? They also mentioned wanting to redirect the new Firefox to specific Domain Name Service servers, rather than the traditional server addresses provided by the local network. Anyone know what's going on?
