The credit card save/auto-fill option seems to have disappeared from the settings on Firefox. I previously had it set to 'off', but when there was an issue recently I found the option was gone - although the about:config was still showing credit card options. Has this option been removed from Firefox now?

How can I restore a previous theme? I had a "colorfore" theme that Mozilla offered a few years ago set up in Firefox. It was perfect! I could see everything clearly with my aging eyesight.Then one of my synced computers needed a new Linux OS installation so I signed out of sync on that machine. Installed the new OS. When I started Firefox the first time I signed into sync. I got my history, bookmarks and bookmark bar, but no custom colors. Now my computer at work has its colors reset to the out of box colors too. I have lost the colorfore colors I have been using for several years now. How can I get the colorfore colors back? Thank you for your attention in this matter. I love Firefox, use it exclusively and contribute to Mozilla. Gregg Scholfield

Azure DevOps unusable in Firefox

Hello, I'm using Firefox as my default browser for a while now (10+ years) and I'm getting frustrated with this issue when using Azure Devops. Comments don't load at all and most pages take a long time to load if they load at all. Various features also take a long time to load or don't work at all (examples include adding a reviewer, referencing a story with #, etc.). Anyone else experience this?

It works well for maybe an hour, and after a couple of days it makes no sense anymore.

Now I'm using firefox containers with a container only for Azure Devops and seems working better but ... Curious thing is that it pops up and asks for credentials periodically every 5 or 10 minutes. Well, unless the boxes are already filled up with the credentials.

Thanks,

I am using Firefox on Linux. Version is showing as 114.0.2 when I do firefox --version. The display in the Firefox windows is completely messed up. Can't show what I mean as I probably can't get a screenshot. Is this to do with hardware accelerated video? These messages appeared when I tried it from the command line: "[GFX1-]: glxtest: libEGL missing methods for GL test Missing chrome or resource URL: chrome://global/skin/icons/warning-16.png" It starts and then has very high CPU. I had to reboot. I may have added something to the config in the past, using the GUI, but can't remember what I did, maybe to do with the hardware acceleration, thinking I could try seeing if it would work. I tried a few things adding these lines to a user.js file in the profile folder (something I found online):

"user_pref("browser.preferences.defaultPerformanceSettings.enabled", false); user_pref("layers.acceleration.disabled", true");

This has not helped. Is there anything else I can do?

When using Netflix in full screen there is a slim transparent bar which shows my desktop at the top of the frame. It was not here a few days ago, i might have updated since then. It does not appear in YouTube full screen but i have not tried any other websites to see if it's there. Restarting my system and Firefox did not resolve the issue. Is there any way to fix this, or do i have too wait for a bug fix/the problem to be identified?

Hi,

For as long as I can remember I've been able to ctrl + click in the "text area" beneath the link in DuckDuckGo search results and Firefox would open a new tab and switch to that tab automatically; but if clicking on the link itself Firefox would open the link in a new tab in the background. This was a priceless feature until today with the 123.0 update. Now ctrl + left click in the text area opens a new tab in the background but does not switch to it. I've been able to confirm this is only effecting v123 on all both linux and windows.

Hoping somebody here might be able to suggest to development returning this feature back to Firefox or help me figure out a way to set this option manually myself.

Thanks!

Hello,

Like I suppose any user of older systems (Macs...) that cannot be updated to a newer OS version and thus locked-in to an older Firefox browser I received an email today:

"Don’t stop the sync. Upgrade your Firefox before March 31st."

Why, why, why??

Why would Mozilla take away this last little bit of usefulness after already having abandoned all updates to the browser itself? Why actively "fix" something that ain't broke in a why that does actually break it?

And don't give me the sacrosanctuous security argument please ;) - I never synced sensitive information, not even my browsing history. If security *is* the reason it should be hardly more difficult to disable/disallow just the syncing of that information at the server end. We're clearly speaking at a change on that end anyway, otherwise everyone NOT running the very latest version would be urged to update, not just users of v78 and older.

Anyway, I'm sadly aware of the fact this little rant or even a concerted action isn't likely to change anything, so what options are there? Any suggestions for browser extensions that provide syncing of bookmarks and maybe open tabs or even browser preferences?

Thanks!

PS: I'm posting this from another older system currently still running a Ubuntu 14.04 version that is in fact hardly younger than my Mac's OS but still enjoys Firefox updates...

I have enabled privacy.resistFingerprinting in Firefox. I have also set my default zoom level to 133%

When I open a website (e.g. https://github.com/), it is zoomed to 133% as expected. If I then navigate to a page on that website (e.g. https://github.com/pricing) using the menu at the top of the page, then the new page is still zoomed to 133%. So far, so good.

However, on the new page (https://github.com/pricing) if I increase the zoom over 133%, then navigate back to the original page (https://github.com/) using the menu at the top of the page, then my zoom level is reset to 100%.

Is this expected behaviour? I would have thought that the zoom level would be reset to 133%, not 100%.

I found this, which seems somewhat related: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1609880
