hello

1) I've been trying to change the console colours for the web developer console using userChrome.css, but I have failed. I want to set the background for console.info text to be light blue while the text color to be bold dark blue font. I would like to have it only in light theme. Also I would like to change the font size of the console for both themes.

2) Is it possible to change the folders of bookmarks to yellow. I read there are SVG. I tried to solution that are meant to change the folders to yellow, but failed. Can someone point me to a dummies guide for a solution.

The first one is the more important issue.

Thank you in advance

Hi,

I have two connected problems, the first is that every time I opne a pdf in Firefox, it downloads it whether I want it to or not. I've checked my settings and as far as I can tell, it *should* be just opening them in a new tab.

The second (more frustrating) thing is that my downloads seem to be disappearing from my download library in Firefox? The files themselves are safe on my computer, but I have to go hunting through where I've saved them instead of just accessing them from the downloads window tab thing.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I got again blue screens (see also Release Notes of 106.0.5) with 107.0.1 and my Gemini Lake CPU notebook, was an old codebase taken ? I get NO bluescreens (crash) with with 107.0, the only AddOn I loaded is uBlock Origin, nothing else. This is VERY annoying, saw this also with Firefox ESR, with ESR, there was no code fix for Gemini Lake CPUs.

I have a high speed windows 10 laptop. I've used Firefox for many years with very good results. Since your recent upgrade my computer has run extremely slow on your browser. This is not the case with aol or Google. I've tried changing settings but don't know what I'm doing. Nothing is making a difference. I don't want to go to another browser but unless this changes I have no choice. Hope you can help.

Gah your tab crashed happening on version 107 frequently. Very annoying and I have gone through FFX Refresh. NO Change. Windows 10 64bit. Malwares is enabled and I have Norton 360 running. There don't seem to be any solutions listed even though more than 42 posts having this problem, some since level 88! I usually have about 4 tabs open including Google calendar and Google contacts. Sometimes selecting a link from Thunderbird email just results in a blank page with the correct URL showing but page loading not completing. At other times clicking a link in one tab results in a new tab that then hangs the same way. At that stage, clicking on the other open tabs (Calendar etc) gives the Gah message. The only way to recover seems to be to stop and start FFX. Clicking on the buttons in the error message (Close Tab / Restore Tab) does nothing at all.

A solution would be welcomed.

scaling video to native resolution bypass system scale

Hello there, I wish to play 1080p video in 4k resolution(monitor native) rather than 1440*1.5 in fullscreen mode on youtube. I have a monitor 4k resolution, my win10 setting is 150% scaling(recommended), the youtube viewport size is "2560x1440*1.5" with a "*1.5". When I change win10 to 100%, viewport is "3840x2160". This seems correct but the video quality is lower because it is not a x2 upscale from original 1080p youtube stream, but rather x1.5x1.33. Is there anyway for firefox to render video directly? I am aware I can change system scale each time to play video but that's not what I'm looking for. I guess since firefox is rendering text pixel perfect so it has a solution for this problem. Thanks

Is there a way to copy add-on data from one PC to another? I'm in the process of switching to Linux and I don't want to lose the data from one add-on specifically, Feedbro.

I've considered copying my whole profile, but there is a glitch I've been stuck with for a while now and I think a fresh profile would be a good idea.

I know Feedbro can export feed subscriptions, but I want to keep ALL the data, not just the subscriptions.

Dear Friends, Why don't the Firefox ESR updates install on my computer anymore - it won't go past 102.5? I keep hitting the download, then install the file and restart Firefox and even the computer sometimes, but it will NOT install the new versions.

Why?

It always has in the past. Now I can't access my online banking due to their security measures. Very upset!

Please help me. Thank you.

Some pages in Firefox are displaying 'Wingdings' instead of 'English' characters. This actually included the "Topic" selection in the questions page!!!! (see attached image) It does not happen on most pages, but some that I wish to use are affected. Some sites are partially affected with, for example, drop-down lists displaying incorrectly whist the rest of the page is OK. If I select the affected text and paste it into, say, 'Notepad', the test displays correctly. This only started a couple of months ago following an 'update' to Firefox. (not much of an update if it messes up the application)!!

I just installed Thunderbird as my principal email carrier, and I was delighted at how fast and easy it was. Only one problem: it won't send mail. In Troubleshoot I discovered there are two smtp listings for this single account, one default, the other not. How do I delete the non-default one? I'm only guessing this is a conflict problem, but if there are any other known issues for this glitch, please advise. shawhomer@mailfence.com
