While in the Firefox browser I can no longer display the windows 10 toolbar by moving the cursor to the bottom of the page. This has always worked but started failing recently. Not sure if it was a Firefox update that changed things or something else. Moving the cursor to the bottom of the screen on all windows applications correctly pops up the taskbar. This only happens with the Firefox main screen and any web page linked to with Firefox. The Windows IE works fine.

Firefox does not let me always access one of my bank accounts (the bank comes back with a 404 error) but using Chrome or Edge I can sign in. This happened about 6 months ago with another bank account, but then the problem mysteriously went away. Are there some settings I need to adjust?

My Firefox browser recently upgraded to 96.0.1 (64bit) and since then I have noticed that the background on when doing google searches and when watching Youtube is in dark theme. Altering to the light theme in Firefox settings has no effect and I have tried all the suggestions without success.

I did find that by removing the theme Unicorn Fantasy by M♥Donna and installing a light grey theme this forced google and youtube into there light theme. I have also tried installing other themes and these also seem to cause the dark mode.

I would assume it is a problem caused by the latest Firefox update as google and youtube had the normal white background before this. It's not a massive problem, just annoying and makes little difficult to use


Anyone know how to get round this ?

Through no action of my own, the background color for FF has changed from white to black, which I absolutely abhor. I've wasted a lot of time trying a lot of recommended fixes that haven't work. As much as I like FF, I am now working with Edge in Windows 11. This change will be permanent if I don't find a fix for the FF problem.

I'm not sure this is a problem with Firefox but I have run out of other options to look at. At first I thought it might be because the page uses a frameset (I know it's obsolete) so I created a version that uses an iframe instead. That way the html that needs to be acted on is not in a frame. It still doesn't work. I don't know why it works in stackoverflow's sandbox and jsfiddle but not on my website. Any help is appreciated.

Frameset version iFrame version

If you need to see the tabstrip code (it's virtually identical to the iFrame version): Tabstrip for frameset version

The script is supposed to hilite the selected tab with a red background. The rollover works fine (yellow background and brown text) but the selected tab color never shows up.

Why are you eliminating any way to open pages in new windows? That's a deal breaker for me. I'm sick and tired of opening tabs then having to use the context menu to move them to a new window. The browser now dumps every open link into the same window, killing any information in the previous window if you use the back button to go back to it.

Recently (past several months) firefox has been taking every light mode theme I choose and changing it to dark mode. Do. Not. Want.

Once a theme has been "changed", I can never use it in light mode again. So I'm left mode-hopping in the hopes of being able to get a readable light mode for a couple days, until I have to change again.

I've checked other questioners but their answers didn't solve this.
