Suddenly the backgrounds to many Firefox screens - browser, history, settings - changed from white to black. This makes it very difficult for me to read whats on these screens. How do I change them back to white?

The browser screen was black and I did that "about:config" thing and toggled the "browser.proton.enabled" to False which converted the background of the browser to back to white but all the other drop down menus are still black. The bookmark toolbar menu is black, the background of the hamburger menu is black, and the "customize menu" background is black. These areas are now difficult for me to see.

When FF developers start fooling around with colors in the FF browser they need to tread lightly and be aware of all accessibility problems their users may have. Where accessibility is concerned, one size doesn't fit all. Some people have problems with white backgrounds and others, like myself, have problems reading screens with black backgrounds. One simply MUST be aware of sight problems in users.

P.S. I tried uploading photos of the black backgrounds in question but the upload wheel just kept spinning. The photo size was within accepted parameter. Also, I tried to check the box "Email me when someone answers the thread" but that wouldnt work either.

Not sure when it happened, but some of the information for an installed add-on is missing. There is no author link or a homepage link. When I search the mozilla add-ons website I can't find the add-on anymore.

This is the add-on name and version:

Downloader for Instagram™ 1.0.4 June 3, 2020

I don't know why the Mozilla add-ons website doesn't detect what add-ons the user has installed when you search. That would be very helpful and why it isn't a default feature is dumb.

You have users sign in to the add-on account, why not include that feature to make things easier.

I'm guessing the solution is remove the add-on and hope another one can do what I installed the other add-on for.

I noticed the icon for this add-on appears in the overflow area of the toolbar. When I click on the icon it opens a link to a page that no longer exists when I search Google and the wayback machine archive site.

Firefox should find out if this happens and notify users that an add-on is defunct.

Anyway, here's the website associated with the add-on.

This was the original thread <https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1363425#answer-1471931>

In short, to summarize the original issue, one day after clearing my 'recent history' 100% once, gmail.com never ever became autofilled again. I can't get it to show up, no matter what.

I even refreshed firefox, still didn't help, sadly. The only thing left is to uninstall FF but that's a headache I don't want to do. and there's no guarantee that it would work.

Tried disabling all my extensions except for the most obviously fine ones like momentum. Didn't seem to help. <https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1176553> This guy had the EXACT same problem I had. So I followed through these suggestions. Didn't help.

1. Does anyone know what the right keywords for this would be if I want to google others who have similar issues? Looks like I can only just hope other people have the solution. But I've googled things like firefox not suggesting history in omnibox search. Hasn't come up with anything that worked yet.

With W10 set to Dark Mode and Firefox set to Dark Mode, I am unable to discern the active tab from the others at the top. There should be an outline or color difference for the active tab to make switching to another chosen tab easy. I am forced to change the Firefox Theme to one that actually does this. I don't understand why the default dark theme in Firefox doesn't do this. Will there be a change in the next version?

I updating firefox last night and now everything is like its in dark mode. The theme I am using is mostly dark, but it was last updated in 2019, so no changes to the theme. When I open a new tab, the page is black instead of white, etc. Is there a way to disable dark mode without changing my theme? It worked fine before I updated.

Hi: I hope I can explain my issue easily. When I am using Firefox 96.0.1 64 bit (Windows 10) and go to print a web page, the print screen pops up. The first thing on the right under "print" is a 'destination' drop-down menu for the various printers on my network. They appear in reverse alphabetical order. How can I configure the dropdown menu so that they appear in alphabetical order? Thanks so much.

Please advise how to revert back to old display. It changed with latest update. I am in tears as simply cannot read this light text on black background. I am seeing blurry, squinting to try focus and getting headache. Spent over an hour trying to follow steps on internet to restore old settings. . Nothing worked. Colour panel in settings shows text selection as black, background as white. But that is not what it's doing. Desperate, else need to set up another default browser. Cannot work like this.

Recently I was having trouble using Firefox with my web based Outlook email and asked Microsoft for support. In their reply they recommended that I reset Firefox.

I am reluctant to do so as I don't want to lose all my add ons which have accumulated over time as I am not sure about how to get them back if I lose them with a reset.

Is there a way to reset Firefox but keep my add ons etc?

I would appreciate your advice and thank you in anticipation.

Hi, since 12 July update, any theme with a darkish colour is now leading to full dark mode on screen, i.e. web page is in dark mode, sidebar is dark mode etc. Whereas pre-update the screen/sidebar were light, which is how I like it.

The only way I can keep light mode now is have a 'bright' i.e. light coloured theme.

This doesn't seem right does it?

How can I keep my old, pre 12 July theme(s), or new ones and still work with light screen?

Thanks

Hello!

I am multilingual and write in multiple different languages, and the red markings from spellcheck underneath non-English sentences get annoying when they are so frequent. I understand that I can install multiple dictionaries, but that does not allow me to use more than one language's spellcheck at a time.

Is it possible to activate 2+ language dictionaries in Firefox?

Thanks for the help, Sylvan
