I upgraded to Windows 11 home and since I did when I open Firefox I keep getting the pink and gray bar with the skull telling me my computer is under remote control. If I close Firefox then reopen it the error goes away, BUT, (isn't there always a but) some websites don't totally load. Please tell me there is a fix?

I always used a theme that is dark on the top side (tab area), after the last update, all pages went on darkmode without me making any change, google search, twitter, whatsapp web, even the initial firefox page. The only way to turn that off is to deactivate my theme. I dont want my browser to be entirely on dark mode. How can I roll back this change?

(This note is a reply to a thread that was started late last week. For some reason, I wasn't able to access the details again when I came back to it today.)


The problem is I'm having trouble accessing protected files from my employer.

A grey message box comes up when I try to do so that reads as follows:

"Currently in safe reading mode. This document cannot connect to:

https://learninghub.phsa.ca/courses/20165/react-adult-protection-curriculum-models-1-overview-of-legislation-and-documentation

If you want to enable this function, please check the Trust Manager preferences to disable safe reading."

When I go to 'Preferences' and click on Trust Manager, I'm still not able to access the protected files.

PS I was unable to take a screen shot of this grey box.

Hello there !!!

Today I had serious damage to my Mozilla Firefox. When I started up Firefox I realized that I lost all my opened tabs on all my (three) opened windows, although I had checked the box "Restore previous sessions" in the settings section.

I opened "settings" and I saw this box unchecked !!!!!

The unfortunate event of this failure is that I restarted Firefox and even worse I restarted the PC.

Now I wonder, after all these, if there is a way to restore all my lost TABs that, I believe, there are hidden somewhere...

I know it gets posted a lot but none have actual working answers. I have autoplay to be blocked on all sites, I will never want any site to autoplay anything, I'd rather not be ever to ever start the video than for autoplay to happen.

I've checked the about:config against other posts say are the answer but it it's never solved this.

Upgraded to firefox 96 and the problem persists - haven't checked much yet but instagram.com is certainly playing every post.

Firefox will now only up with a window about one-third the size of my monitor. I cannot find any way to change it back to filling the entire screen upon opening. I don't mean the full screen setting, just filling it top to bottom and side to side. If I hover over screen size icon, I get numerous options, but none allowing me to select wide screen.

I need to transfer saved logins from Firefox on a soon to be retired laptop to Firefox on a new laptop. New laptop has a few logins created while setting it up than I copied manually knowing that when I import from the old laptop with many logins, the few on the new laptop will be overwritten. My problem is that Firefox can export logins into a logins.csv file but it seems can only import from a Microsoft browser. Is copying the key4.db and logins.json from the old to the new the only correct way to do this? The old laptops logins.json file has a recent date but the key4.db has a 2018 date even though some new logins were saved last month. Do I only need to copy the logins.json file?

I opened up Mozilla and noticed that my bookmarks bar was empty and can't figure out why my bookmarks are "gone" (but still registered by Firefox), or how to put them back into my bookmarks bar. The only thing I can think of that might have caused this is that I accidentally clicked on the "Import bookmarks" button at some point during the last time I was using Firefox, but I'm not sure if that would cause my bookmarks to disappear.

Is there any way to restore my bookmarks bar?
