I have just upgraded firefox to 115.3, and now the menu and tab area have an ugly blue color with white text.

If I switch to another window, the color returns to gray with black text, but as soon as I select the window, the menu/tab area becomes blue again. Only the active tab is shown with a gray background.

I have found this bug (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1090432) from 8 years ago, which seems to be the same problem, but the fix described does not work:

In about:config, browser.tabs.drawInTitlebar is set to 0 (not true or false). If I set it to something else and back to 0, the blue color remains. If the value is not 0, one could argue that firefox should use the title bar color, but if it is 0, then the regular window color should be used. Also, regardless of which color ought to be used, the tab header is not connected to the window below, but separated using a blue separator, making the window exceptionally ugly. This is the case even when browser.tabs.drawInTitlebar is nonzero.

I have also created a 100% fresh profile, without addons etc, and the behavior is the same.

Since some month Firefox cannot download correct .zip or .bz2 files. When open these files 7zip says that there is "data after payload". When do sha256sum on such a file it is not correct (of course not). Today it happens again with Apache http: first line is Firefox-downloaded file and second line the correct sha256 from Apache-website. 2bda6210b50ed89d852bfc8c00140deab29f43f63f0e4098a60e0a066e5fb7e1 httpd-2.4.58.tar.bz2 fa16d72a078210a54c47dd5bef2f8b9b8a01d94909a51453956b3ec6442ea4c5 *httpd-2.4.58.tar.bz2

Chrome download the same files correct.

Hello, I use ubuntu on my M$ surface go2 tablet, and I wonder, if it's possible to enable video touch control (HTML5 player) on video sites other than youtube, like I have in android or chromeOS. On Android this option works always. On ChromeOS doesn't work in privacy mode (no idea why, there is no addons or extensions, just pure firefox.

I know ther is option in PiP option, but is it possible to use just double tap on screen instead of small buttons? (now double tap turns on and off full screen).

Hello,

When trying to open files from ClearQuest in Firefox, the file format is not always correctly recognized: every time it is necessary to manually browse for the application (e.g. Word, Excel) to open the file. Moreover, when Outlook msg file is being opened, it fails with an error message: "The command line argument is not valid. Verify the switch you are using."

MS Edge works OK. But there are other sites that don't work well with Edge - I need a single browser for all Thales applications, and so far it's been Firefox. Every time to fix it should clear cash and set up new profile. It is working for awhile then again cause a problem. Please advise us ASAP. Thank you for your time.

So I have two different accounts for one website. However one of them I use very rarely, maybe once in 2-3 months the other one i use almost daily. Therefore I have saved both logins in Firefox and I can see them in my passwords.

The problem is that whenever I try to access the website, Firefox auto-fills the "second" account, the one i only use rarely. What this means is that instead of me being able to just press login i have to delete the username filled in by Firefox and select the other one. So what i would like to do is to maybe tell Mozilla that I want it to use the other account for auto-fill.

It used to be possible to set the colour of a container to black, although I can't remember how I did it: I think it was somewhere reachable from the preferences page. Facebook container still sets its colour to black on installation, so the black colour is still there, but I can't set black colour for a container in the Manage Containers dropdown.

I'm running version 8.1.2 on 115.3.1esr (64-bit) for openSUSE Leap 15.5 (and it would be much easier if I could copy this information from the Help-<About page). </p>

Hello, I have been looking at my traffic and discovered that my firefox for some reason does multiple DNS queries for the same domain, usually 6 times or 3 times, why is that happening I have checked with chrome and it does only 1 request per domain name.

I have attached a wireshark dump, the response is there instantly in very few ms yet it keeps querying the same name again.

My version is 115.3.1esr (64-bit) I have checked in about:config with dns and couldnt find anything relevant.

System:

Windows 10 pro 22h2 19045.3516

Intel i5-10200h with UHD 620

Driver 31.0.101.2125

Firefox ESR 115.3.0


When watching streams in firefox, I noticed that overall iGPU load is very high, up to 70%, a lot higher than watching 1080p movie with dedicated player.

I found that the firefox actually only shares 10~20 iGPU load, the rest are from DWM, which load is up to 40% sometimes.

Also found if I switch from the tab with streaming page to another normal webpage, DWM immediately drops its usage to about 2%, firefox still uses some load as it's still decoding. DWM usage rises if I switch back.

I tried force firefox to use nvidia dGPU, firefox does use nvidia card to decode, but the DWM problem said above still apply.


See attatched image as prove.

I used to like Firefox because it let me set my browser up in an intuitive and comfortable way, and it was able to easily do the things I wanted to do. Then simple and useful features (e.g., tabs under the address bar) were hidden in about:config. Then they were removed completely, and you had to use third-party extensions to restore them (e.g., getting the refresh button on the address bar). Then, the third-party extensions were blocked so that you had to copy and paste third-party code into userChrome.css (e.g., restoring "View Image").

I hate updating Firefox, because it gets worse every time. This browser has turned to absolute garbage, and it just keeps circling the drain. Wasn't Firefox supposed to be the customizable browser? Mozilla seems to have decided that customization needs to be completely wiped out, and features need to be removed for...some reason?

Why is this happening? I shouldn't have to be afraid of the update button, but it's become a "make Firefox even worse" button. My only consolation now is that Mozilla won't have any more major updates for my operating system, so I might be okay for a few months.
