Apparently, the preference names for the currently selected / focused, highlighted search match have changed. I can't find any CSS code on the web to modify this behavior. Though I made a note years ago about switching from using prefs for it in about:config, to using a CSS style.

The "unfocused" highlighted search matches do allow me to change both FG & (BG=bright pink) colors - to a point. I think I had to create these prefs, or some of them. The UNfocused search matches color prefs are: ui.textHighlightBackground #EF0FFF ui.textHighlightForeground #000000

They allow me to use black (vs. default white) for the text color on the fuchsia BG.

The pref names for focused search match apparently changed, based on an old profile. ui.textSelectBackgroundAttention #00FF00 ui.textSelectForegroundAttention #FFFFFF (I can change the white FG to anything, but it always defaults to white. The green BG w/ white FG / text, is really hard for me to read.

Fx won't allow me to change the FG color on the currently focused / selected search match. No matter if I select a BG color that black - or many non-white Foreground colors have a much higher contrast values than the default green BG w/ white FG.

Even if the colors I try have a much higher contrast value than the green / white. http://snook.ca/technical/colour_contrast/colour.html#fg=B6C9D0,bg=0004FF

EXCEPT, for the focused / selected match, if I enter white or very light BG, the super smart code still uses white text, making it invisible. But it won't let me use green / black, or yell BG with Red or Blk FG.

I think this problem is because of some algorithm Mozilla uses to calculate contrast values, that obviously doesn't work very well. Anyone know of a way around this issue, or CSS code that might override Mozilla's contrast algorithm?

Instead of having my bookmarks under the toolbar, it's along the left side. I have many things in chrome.css, like one that gives me 4 rows of bookmarks, but on the side, it's only one. If I click on one of the ones I can see, it does go to the website, as I can see the correct url in the address bar. However, everything is blank. Even about:config is blank. Safe mode works, but of course doesn't give me my bookmarks or anything else. The extensions that Safe Mode says are disabled are: Amazon Assistant for Firefox, Dashlane, and New Tab Override. Do you need the things from chrome.css to help me troubleshoot? I can't keep using Safe Mode, don't care for Chrome, and refuse to use IE.

Since I upgraded to FF68esr form fields have a yellow background. I've looked in the group policy, about:config and can't find anything. I found a couple of css suggestions neither of which got rid of the yellow. I just want to have firefox work how it used to instead of all these constant changes that break or degrade the experience.

Is there a way to disable this annoying "feature"?

Also, since upgrading, sites that cached my userid and password no longer show the password and enable me to single click login. I have to select the user name field, press tab, then the password is added and then I can log in. Is there a way to revert that behavior too?

I posted many weeks ago about how slow v68 is to load themes. The CSS that I used in v60 was speedy enough, but in v68 it's really slow, showing a bright blue background for a second or two before loading the theme. Is there a way to fix that in v68. I think someone said themes are going to be phased out too... is that true? Firefox looks really unattractive without something improve the UI.

It looks like (at least on macOS 10.15.2) the latest update (72.0.1) introduced either a bug or a change in how pinned tabs are rendered as since today I noticed that my pinned tabs are a lot wider and are showing part of the title (see attached image, the first two tabs are pinned tabs).

Is this something I can change or customize, or is this a bug?

This along with the shortcut CTRL+SHIFT+P to open a new private window are features no other browsers have.

I viewed this thread. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1164362

Maybe I'm doing something wrong. I use CustomCSSforFx https://github.com/Aris-t2/CustomCSSforFx/issues/211, to which I added

/* Hide Mobile Bookmarks on menus */

  1. BMB_mobileBookmarks, #menu_mobileBookmarks {
 display: none !important;

}

But it doesn't work. Oddly, I have another, newer, profile, where the Mobile Bookmarks Folder isn't displayed, I don't know exactly what governs whether you see it or not, but the sync rules for my android (currently I have "nothing selected to synced from phone) my were established before the latest profile was created.

What I'd also like to get rid of, or "hide" are the "Other Bookmarks" folder, and the Bookmarks Toolbar" folder from the Bookmarks drop down menu. At worst, I'd like to be able to move them.

The more tabs I open, the narrower they are to fit in window, right? Right.

But it used to work the way that when I close multiple of them, they stayed the same size for a second or so which meant closing multiple of them in a row was much easier (just click in the same place multiple times), right?

Well, it used to (work that way) because it doesn't anymore. Tabs are resizing instantly which is annoying. Here's my question: is there a setting in about:config that got resetted or something or FF70 doesn't have this function anymore? Thanks!
