Please can someone tell me how to prevent Firefox from printing blocks of background colour around text when printing while in High Contrast mode (ie with the 'Override the colours specified by the page with your selections above' option set to 'Always' or 'Only with High Contrast themes'). It is wasting a lot of ink and makes it difficult to read the printed page. I just want it to print the text, not the background colour from my display settings. The 'Print background (colour and images)' option is off.

This question is about the developer tools (inspector). Sorry if this is not the right forum. If this is not the right place, please specify where I can ask this question. I have looked around but this seemed like the best place to write this.

This problem started a couple a month ago in Firefox Developer Edtion after an automatic update (to either v82 or 83, im not sure).

This is what used to be the case, prior to the update: In the developer tools, in the inspector tab. There's an overview of the HTML-tree, and when you hover over an html-element in the tree, the correspondent element in de browser window is highlighted, and when you move your mouse the item will no longer be highlighted, since you're no longer hovering over it in the HTML tree. This is how it has always been.

The situation as it has been for 2 to 4 weeks: After selecting a couple of items in de HTML tree, and maybe editing some CSS, so just after normal use, The selected element will stay highlighted, even though I'm no longer hovering over it in the Inspector window. I added a screenshot to show what I mean. This bug is annoying because when editing CSS, I want to be able to clearly see the changes I mean, but now theyre obstructed by the highlight. Toggling developer tools by pressing F12 twice fixes this obviously, but only for a couple of minutes, and sometimes the problem return immidiatly.

This problem first emerged in Firefox Developer Edition about a month ago after an update. It really messes with my workflow, and I couldnt find a solution. Tee problem emerged on multiple websites (not just the ones a was developing, as you can see in my screenshot it also happens on the mozzila website) and the problem was the same accros multiple computers (all modern windows 10 machinary, owned by me or my collegues). So I stopped using Developer Edition, and switched to using 'regular' Firefox for developing, as regular Firefox did not exibit this bug. But since last week, after regular Firefox also got an update, the bug appears in regular Firefox aswell.

So here I am, an avid Firefox Developer Edition user, desperate for a solution. Ofcourse I already tried everything from reïnstalling, refreshing firefox, everything.

Thanks

For some strange reason Firefox is not logging me into my favorite websites automatically any more. I have to manually log in every time. The websites' login pages are automatically filled when I move the cursor to the Username and Password fields, but I still have to click Log In. As soon as I log out and log in I am asked to "Sign In" again. I tried manually adding a website to the "Saved Logins" but that did not help. Using Windows 10 64bit.

I'm ising Firefox on a Windows 10 machine. Lately any time I open a new window it insists on opening several dozen tabs from previous sessions. I cleaned the cache. No change. I rebooted. NO change. I uninstalled it using an installer (Revo) that supposedly checks for all kinds of leftover files. I then rebooted. I saw no signs of it on my machine. I downloaded a fresh copy and installed from scratch. When I open the initial page it's fine. As soon as I open a new page all the old things are back in a gazillion little tabs. It's kind of annoying. Not to mention the time it takes to close everything by hand.

Any suggestions will be appreciated.

I have spent hours, literally, trying to fix this issue by following firefox community help guides yet nothing I've found has solved the problem. I can fully utilize youtube, with similar addons installed , on google chrome and microsoft edge without any problems yet firefox will allow only videos to be watched on youtube - nothing more. When I try to comment it says: Returned error , when click on the (save) button; nothing happens, when i click on my account icon a blank window opens with a circle spinning in the center endlessly - - the extent of functions is limited to, watching videos . I've manually installed Adobe flash, I've tried disabling the polymer function, I've tried the safe mode with my firewall disabled (I made sure that the microsoft firewall did not enable when I disabled Kaspersky), I went into about:config and did all the adjustments... there is quite a number of other things I did over the course of three hours. In the picture I have one picture showing my firewall/addons disabled with firefox in safemode while in the other picture the firewall/addons are enabled. System Information

I use Firefox for work. I generally have several tabs open, including Outlook, Yahoo mail and Facebook. It seems most of the problems come with Facebook. I constantly get the yellow bar across the top saying "A Web page is slowing down your browser." I have tried restarting in safe mode, disabling add-ons and so on. I don't know a lot of the nitty gritty of getting into fixing the slowness and crashes it also causes, so I'm asking for some clear help for a non-programmer.

Whenever I close all pages of Firefox my computer becomes completely unresponsive. No mouse movement, clicks, or keyboard inputs make a difference. I tried reinstalling Firefox, creating a new profile, and installing different versions of Firefox. This is not a problem for other browsers like Chrome. This makes my computer freezes for minutes at a time which can make things difficult for me when I am under a time crunch. I could not find any questions on this matter in any forums. Is this a problem with Firefox or my computer? Has anyone encountered this issue? Does anyone know how to fix this?

I've attempted to do the fixes of Firefox blocking my access to a KNOWN site that is safe, i.e. AT&T Digital Life. I've been using the site to monitor my home security system. It is really aggravating to have Firefox continue to block me when I am needing to quickly access a camera at my home. This needs to be fixed NOW.

FF is unable to navigate the grocery purchase procedure for Walmart. It has cost me hours and hours of tech support and re-entering data over and over, and also cost me hundreds of dollars paying for groceries that were supposed to be free, and my limited income doesn't have that type of fiscal flexibility. How do I get FF to look into this and fix it?
