Hi,

Ever since a while ago, some images are not showing correctly in Firefox. I must have gotten this issue in the last update(84.0.2) or slightly earlier. I tried resetting it, and used safe mode, but I still get the same issue. I don't know how to fix it at this point, and the only solution I have at the moment is to switch over to Chrome for important times, such as for online exams, but this is not ideal. Does anyone have a clue about what could be wrong, or am I doomed to use alternatives to Firefox during important times/just for viewing certain pictures?

Current Version: 84.0.2 (Auto-Update/Help -> About Firefox) OS: Windows 10

Thank you.

Anyone have any suggestions on how to log into Sling? I get a "A webpage is slowing down your browser. What would you like to do?" message and then the URL goes to "about:blank." I have no problem signing in on Edge, but I really don't want to go there. Ran CCleaner, made sure to clear all sling cookies, whitelisted sling for uBlock origin. (Running FB Container - does that have any effect?) Help?

Hi all, I'd be grateful for some help with themes. I've been using Firefox and this specific feature for years and never had any issues with it. On my new PC, themes are suddenly looking like they have only been partially applied. Every theme so far has done this, I've checked all the regular customization settings and I'm stumped. As you can see in the screenshot, the theme applies to the tab and search bar levels, but not to the top level that shows the page title and system buttons. I know it's a cosmetic issue but it is driving me mad. Is this a "feature" in a new version of Firefox to make themes look like this? It looks more like a bug to me :(

I'm on Windows 10, brand new install on a new machine, I've only synced my Firefox tabs/bookmarks etc but it already looked like this before I did that or added my usual extensions. Any help or explanation why it's like this now would be appreciated!

When I try to manage bookmarks, I get a confusing hierarchy of bookmark folders that shows the same folder in multiple places, and I can't open it to see the subfolders. It totally confuses me. Naturally, I tried Firefox Help.

When I go to Firefox Help, I don't know how to enter search strings to narrow searches. Anything I enter gets me hundreds of topics, including strings attempting to find out how to narrow searches. Encasing strings in quotes does nothing.

Right now, I need help managing bookmarks. For the future, I need to know how to use Firefox Help correctly. Thanks.

Currently testing an application in Mozilla Firefox and other browsers, but having difficulty customizing the scrollbar in Mozilla Firefox. The application scrollbar works fine in Chrome, Edge, Opera, except for Mozilla Firefox where I get a different behavior and I can't seem to understand. Two screenshots of the application are added to this message: 1. yes_scrollbar.jpeg 2. no_scrollbar.jpeg

The yes_scrollbar.jpeg is what I'm trying to achieve in Mozilla Firefox, however, I'm getting the no_scrollbar.jpeg as a final result.

Could you provide a guide regarding how to customize the scrollbar in Mozilla Firefox?
