The new FF DevEdition theme has a thinner bookmarks bar when in Normal density. The old bookmarks bar thickness is only on the Touch density setting. Is there a way like through about:config that I can have the "normal" density with the old thickness bookmarks bar?

I am using: Firefox Developer Edition 57.0b1 (64-bit) on Aurora update channel

P.S. There is a glitch where you can do this, but you have to do it for each open window. I want a permanent solution. The glitch: Go to Customize, add Flexible Space before Bookmarks Toolbar Items, switch to another tab and come back, remove Flexible Space, and exit Customize. Another glitch is by restoring the window, then maximizing it.

I need help. I have told this to you over 3 times with ZERO response. I am having problems with the colors on Firefox in Windows 10. When I am using yahoo to write email I can not see the 24 different colors or 24 different highlights. Just 24 shaded boxes. They are all the same color, so I have no idea what I may or may not be typing. This is also happening all over the internet if I need to enter information in a web sites "box".

I am handicapped and I don't have much of a life. I was hurt at work in 1989 and I have had 8 back surgeries with lots of hardware and fixes to repair the bent titanium rods and screws. I have cadaver bone in my back, I have had one neck surgery with an artificial disc. My doctors are so good, now, that Dr. Tortolani was the surgeon who actually invented the artificial disc. I also have had both shoulders rotator cuffs rebuilt and Tommy John surgery on my right elbow.

I don't have a big life and using the internet to look around and send and read email is a big part of my day.

I have been using Firefox and Windows for a very long time and I am most happy with the two. My 95 pound black lab puppy destroyed my computer at the end of September. She is HUGE and the vet says she will end over 125 pounds. I got a very old Dell from my parents closet that had no problems with Firefox and yahoo email colors. It did have lots of other problems including a dead battery and tons of very old and slow programs. I now have a new, to me a Sony computer, from my brother who basically stripped this computer clean.

My brother and sister in law used Firefox but never had a color problem. I have been told that I have a very good computer now.

I have downloaded and reloaded Windows 10 and the latest versions of Firefox and Windows 10 over and over 30+ times. I have had help doing this, but without any help to me or my computer.

I have followed all of your instructions to reset the colors to default. More about that below.***

After doing all of this I can still not see the colors in yahoo email. I am also having problems all over the internet seeing where I might need to type something.

Just like above when you asked me to Summarize your question in a sentence. I could not find where to type that. I had to go to Microsoft Edge and bring up that page to see where I needed to type. All I could see was Can't find an answer? Summarize your question..... . That was just plain white area with black letters. I could not see the box to type in.

All over the internet if I need to type in a box, I have no idea where that box is. I get no error messages, nothing, this computer thinks everything is working just fine. There are more places this happens than you might think. Thank goodness I know where to type on Google. I can't see that either. I just know where to go after using google for a long time like years long time.

I have had help and tried myself a total of three times to do your Firefox color reset and that hasn't worked. I know so because of the warranty statement. I can't get that to work today. WHY???? Who knows.


I only know I did this correctly because I got the message about the warranty the first 2 times I tried to reset the colors to default. Today when I tried the color reset AGAIN, I couldn't get to the correct spot and try to restore the colors to the default. So I am doing something wrong today trying the reset today. If I only had to click one place then the computer takes over and does the 4 steps. MAYBE if there was a problem and the 4 steps did or could not complete I could send you the error message and Firefox gets back to me with what went wrong.

LIKE I STILL CAN'T SEE THE COLORS. 90% is just black writing. I have a signature that should be in red and blue. It is only in black so it is not like I can't see colors but they are there. Everything I send is just black.

I need someone to please get back to me with this. I am at my wits end. I love Firefox and I don't want to use Edge or Explorer. Chrome is completely out of the question. I will be more than happy to let someone into my computer and figure out what the problem is.

I have a lot of things not working in my life right now I really need some help with this. I thank you in advance so much that you all could figure out what is wrong with this computer and Firefox. The colors work in Edge and Explorer but I want to use Firefox as that is what I know and use.

I know their is probably something very simple that you people at Firefox know what and how to fix this. I know, I worked at a call center for Southwestern Bell for 3 years, that you guys show to others how crazy problems that people need help with. I just need a few minutes of your time. I am more than happy to talk on the phone or chat or letting you look around in my computer. It's probably an easy 5 minute fix.

I thank you in advance for helping me, PLEASE.

Rob Harkins Venice East, Florida

I am more than happy to help to do tests........ Follow through. Sometimes, our volunteers would ask you for more information or to test out certain scenarios. The sooner you can do this, the sooner they would know how to fix it.



      • (SIDE NOTE) Why when I know what the problem is. Exactly like this problem. You tell me to do 4 steps. Find the address bar type restore:colors,,,, might void warranty... 2 other things. Why CAN"T I JUST HIT I HAVE THIS PROBLEM AND MY COMPUTER DOES THE 4 STEPS ???????? I am usually lost after step 1. That just makes too much sense.
        • (SIDE NOTE 2) It is very hard to find where to write this problem to you. My issue doesn't fit any of the other categories, I think it doesn't, so getting this to you is not the easiest. Try to do it yourself.

There is a NASCAR fan reactions that NASCAR ask about every week. It is called the NASCAR Fan Council. I was asked to join this at the very very beginning when they didn't quite know how to do. I was asked to join because it was impossible to ask the upper most levels of authority a question that I thought NASCAR should look at. When I finally got to an executive I said the same thing. Try to find yourself. He couldn't and I was asked to join the NASCAR Fan Council.

I am also asking management at Firefox to send a question to themselves and see how easy it is not. ****

For some reason, when I started my computer this morning the tabs were all bright blue. When I click on another window and change focus, it reverts to the light gray that it should be, however going back resumes the problem. Starting in safe mode does not help, and turning off hardware acceleration does not help. I have restarted both the browser and my computer, and the problem resumes. The only thing that seems to change it, is when I change it to certain themes like space, who completely change the color of it. The default, dark, and light themes all are affected by this bright blue tab bar.

Hi,

We are a company with Firefox 24 deployed to more than 2000 PCs. We have an Intranet app made with Silverlight working ok with this Firefox version. But now we want to update to Firefox 33 and testing it we've found that it doesn't work with the Silverlight app with big monitors. It seems to be related to the resolution of the monitor, or at least, to the size of the Firefox window. The problem is that the mouse pointer doesn't seem to be pointing where it is. It's better explained in this screencast, where you can see that in a 1024px Firefox window it works OK, but when it's 1920px it doesn't work: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DA9DLYc-vpE

We tried different versions of Silverlight, currently 5.1.30514.0 I don't know in which Firefox version it started to appear this bug. With Internet Explorer it works.

Any idea?

The company that I work with uses a company web that is hosted by a SBS 2008 Server. I can access the companyweb with chrome or safari, but Firefox does not work. The other two come up with a white screen and then a authentication box comes down to ask for your credentials. Firefox does not do this. It just has a white screen. It is not just my computer that is doing this. It seems to be all Macs that have Firefox. What is also weird is that Firefox for Windows works fine.

Since updating to Firefox 40.0 (in OS X 10.9.5) browser windows and the toolbar show strange black lines and squares when the window is resized. Websites are messed up with black backgrounds or disappear beneath a black layer. The toolbar often disappears too, except for the three Mac resize buttons. It renders Firefox completely unusable.

It’s similar to what is described here: https://support.mozilla.org/nl/questions/1071126 and the bug described here: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1032769

None of the offered solutions or workarounds seems to help. Disabling all add-ons and extensions doesn’t help either. I only use the Default theme.

Solution To my own surprise the issue disappeared completely when I installed and started to use another theme (Simple White)…

So it seems that Firefox’s Default theme has a serious bug?

When I start firefox, it boots up, but won't display any content. I just get a white screen. I've noticed when mousing around that everything works - hovering over where the search bar should be changes my cursor, clicking a the top right corner closes firefox, hitting ctrl+T opens a new tab, etc. Starting in safe mode does nothing, I've uninstalled and reinstalled after deleting all system folders, restarted my machine, even searched 'mozilla' in my file explorer and deleted everything that popped up. I'm at my wits end trying to fix this, any help would be necessary. I'm on the latest version of firefox. I've attached some screenshots of what it looks like. (polar bear in a snowstorm)

Problem: The Header image and text do not display properly in Firefox: The content does displays properly in Chrome, Opera and Safari. By the way: I have read and attempted all the applicable troubleshooting suggestions Firefox has supplied without success.

Website: www.twoworlds.ca The page in question is www.twoworlds.ca/other-world.html

Note: I coded the site myself using largely a w3.css framework. Admittedly, the source code is messy. I'm still chimpin' around (experimenting) with things.

Incredibly, am unable to upload two 137 kb screen captures of the problem for visual reference - an endless spin wheel for 12-minutes. Wha..? In that case, please visit my site in Chrome and then Firefox to see the difference. the site again: www.twoworlds.ca/other-world.html

FF 59 doesn't display some pages properly and is unusable. It has been the subject of other questions. As far as I can tell, this has not been fixed yest. I have tried FF 60 beta and this doesn't work either. I've turned off updating but it still downloads and updates when I restart.

As an aside to the FF 59 problem, this machine (a very basic 64-bit Acer netbook that is supposed to run Win10) has problems, but an older 32-bit Tosh (that isn't supposed to support Win10at all, but does) works fine with FF59.

As another aside to updates, I have an even older Compaq that cannot run greater than FF 48 (don't ask!) and it never tries to update, so I know that it is possible to fix. What do I need to do?
