From Firefox version 47+ icons have been changed to have outline style. I couldn't figure out how I could replace or revert them to the good old colorful ones. I know this is the trend nowadays but wireframe icons still look unprofessional and are hardly recognizable at first. I want colored icons with shades and gradients. For back/forward, refresh and home navigation buttons. For Downloads button. For the show sidebars button.
Where can I get these icons? Should I extract them from a previous version or are they still there in new versions?
How can I change them? Do I need to overwrite files in the installation folder or is there a configuration option?

The video is shown as a blurred picture with a download button in it, next to the size. Clicking the button yields to nothing than a turning wheel and the video isn't shown.

Firefox 75.0 has just been released. Address bar has been ruined with dynamic size and lines with increased height. For some unknown reason Mozilla developers think that taking away more vertical space will help their browser have "Focused, clean search experience that's optimized for smaller laptop screens" as they state in the release notes. Outrageous.
Now tell me how to go back to the old behavior.
I want a full horizontal length search result widget as it was before.
I DO NOT want an ENLARGED address bar while searching. Simply annoying that it changes its size and looks like popping out from the upper top toolbar every damn time I type something into it.
I want the ORIGINAL LINE HEIGHT of search results in the expanded address bar.
I want an address bar that doesn't expand when focused with Alt+D, like the old one.
I haven't found an about:config option to restore old behavior. However, a userChrome.css workaround is still good for me.

Codemirror.net has lots of themes besides the dark theme in current dev tools (now Fx 74). The "instructions" how to add / use one :D are more towards if CM is a free standing editor, rather than if codemirror is embedded in a browser.
"Up to a certain extent, CodeMirror's look can be changed by modifying style sheet files. The style sheets supplied by modes simply provide the colors for that mode, and can be adapted in a very *straightforward* way. Well....
"To style the editor itself, it is possible to ALTER or override the styles defined in codemirror.css."
Continuing: "The easiest way to use CodeMirror is to simply load the script and style sheet found under lib/ in the distribution, plus a mode script from one of the mode/ directories. For example:
The only problem is, I can't find a detailed enough example (only ones like the college engineering professors worked, leaving out several key steps).
There weren't many posts in their community about how to make it use another theme than the Default, that's inside of codemirror.css in omni.ja. A guy answering a question about this referenced the theme demo page, showing different themes on code. Said maybe you can read the source files for the demo page. I read it, but I'm not sure it's applicable when embedded in Fx.
I've searched a lot how to do it & there's not much info. Honestly, unless someone advanced enough to look at their instructions could simplify it, it's possible the fastest way is change the default theme colors in codemirror.css, then repack omni.ja. Codemirror mentions that method, but again, I think they're talking if it's freestanding or backend for some text editor, not embedded in a browser.
I'm not sure userChrome will work because it's not really part of Fx. At least I couldn't get it to work, putting the theme code in userChrome (either the normal or /chrome_debugger_profile/chrome). Though some people change some things in devtools using userChrome.css. It breaks when Mozilla changes anything.
The very few things I had tweaked in CM / dev tools UI, stopped working in Fx 74. Nothing I could do - a new profile, new userChrome file, copying a few rules - ever made it work in Fx 74. Most of what I found was people having a hard time changing devtools UI (in Fx or Chrome) w/ any consistency.

This is a LAN wired connection to an on site router that OF COURSE does NOT have any built in SSL support. FireFox now prevents my Netgear recommended connection method from working by forcing a HTTPS URL when attempting to connect to my router. If I manually correct the HTTPS and make it HTTP, FireFox just forces it back to HTTPS when I enter it. Yes, I know how to use the direct IP, but I would like my router to work as Netgear intended. (like it used too a few FireFox versions ago). YOU broke routerlogin.net.

Hi, I would like to start firefox with a new session (one tab on my home page) I am using Firefox 74.0 on openSUSE Leap 42.3 - KDE Plasma 5.8.7. In the preferences I have "Restore previous session" unchecked. in about:config I have:
browser.sessionstore.resume_from_crash false browser.sessionstore.max_resumed_crashes 0
I don't have a user.js
I log out of KDE without closing firefox. At the next login all my tabs and windows are restored. I would like to start with a new session with the option of restoring the old session using the menu. I want to keep my history and the undo close tab/window functionality. Is there a way to do this ?

When i browse to a web page with a username and password, firefox displays a drop-down list with saved usernames, this list includes saved usernames and passwords from a number of other sites. these sites are all for the same domain, but not the same site.

Issue: Cannot play Amazon Music Unlimited.
Platform: Nvidia Jetson Nano
Processor: ARMv8 Processor rev 1 (v8l) × 4
OS: Ubuntu 18.04 LTS
Browser: Firefox for Ubuntu version 75.0b11 (64-bit)
Description: When I log into amazon.com, I can play music excerpts but when I go to Amazon Music, I get the following error: Playback disabled – Please enable playback settings for your browser.
I saw on an Amazon forum (https://www.amazonforum.com/s/question/0D54P00006zSzZVSA0/linuxplayback-disabled-message-in-firefox) that Amazon Music playback is not supported if you are using a Linux computer. Customers using other operating systems (including Linux, Chrome OS, Windows versions older than Windows 7 and versions of OSX below 10.9) can download purchased music directly through their computer's web browser.
However I hear other people are playing other Amazon Prime content using Linux so I suspect you can make it work if you get Widevine.
Reading the forums, I think my issue is that I need Widevine Digital Rights Management.
One forum (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/enable-drm) said that Widevine would be installed (Firefox downloads and enables the Google Widevine CDM on demand, with user permission, to give users a smooth experience on sites that require DRM). They also have instructions on where to enable it in the Add-ons Manager Plugins panel, ellipsis icon next to Widevine Content Decryption Module provided by Google Inc.
On the Add-ons Manager Plugins panel I don’t have Widevine listed. I see “OpenH264” and “Shockwave flash” but I do not see “Widevine Content Decryption Module provided by Google”.
It also said that you can always turn DRM playback on again by opening the Firefox Preferences General panel and, under “Digital Rights Management (DRM) Content”, putting a check mark next to “Play DRM-controlled content”. I don’t have “Digital Rights Management (DRM) Content” listed on the General panel.
I assumed that Widevine didn’t install on demand. So I found another forum that explained how to download the zip file from Google. I did the following steps to get the latest file and I put it in the plugins folder.
sudo unzip 126.96.36.1998-linux-x64.zip
sudo mv libwidevinecdm.so /usr/lib/firefox-addons/plugins
sudo chmod 644 /usr/lib/firefox-addons/plugins/libwidevinecdm.so
Still it doesn’t appear in my Plugins.
• Do I need Widevine to play Amazon Music Unlimited? • If I do, how do I install Widevine?

I have, as far as I can tell, turned on all the options to block media autoplay. There is always a possibility I overlooked a hidden option.
Autoplay blocker works properly when I open a Youtube link in a new tab, the video does not start to play, and when I switch to this tab it still does not start to play. It only plays the video after I click on the play button. Perfect.
However, when I click on a Youtube video link and open it in the current tab, it always starts playing automatically, without waiting for me to click the play button. I would prefer it to wait until I click on the play button. I never want any media to start playing unless I explicitly start it myself.

I want to post a question to a forum but this seems be all that is offering. OK, II using FF74 on Linux Mint 19.. I am encountering severe problems getting the Bookmarks function to work. I cannot save bookmarks, I've reset FF to the default settings but to no avail. I feel that Ia m being driven back to Chrome, tho I support FF on web freedom and security. It is a very frustrating situation. Any help would be much appreciated.

I understand that the updates are necessary, but I keep losing information in forms because firefox forces me to restart. It's extremely frustrating, and I'm about to migrate if I can't get a fix. I tried going to about:config and changing app.update.auto to false, and have tried the policies.json fix, but that didn't work.
I use ubuntu, if that makes a difference.

after the ubuntu 18.04.4 firefox update to 74.0 my passwords seams totally lost. No ask for my master password as I visited a login site. Going to menue passwords, I was asked for my master password, and after entering, my password storage was empty. After a very long time, it seamed as my passwords are back again, but they where not complete, only 271 where back. On an very old system, from which I had transferred the firefox profile to the system now in use, I had had 413 passwords and I had had to create a lot more since this clone. After update to 74.0.1 again, at first passwords where completely lost and now again, lots of them where missing. What was astonishing was, on the old system key4.db is 294912 Byte (and no logins.json), now key4.db is 720896 B (logins.json 141519 B) but for sure lacking lot of information!

I start firefox without any open tab, all extensions deactivated.
I can see that it automatically connects to compute.amazonaws.com and cloudfront.net. This is a gross privacy leak !!! Isn't Firefox supposed to be on top of privacy issues ? Is it expected ? Can it be removed ?
I know mozilla's website relies on amazon services (and this is a deep flaw in mozilla's privacy commitment), but there is no reason for Firefox to use it.

I spent half the day updating and checking setting on my firewall until I realized that Firefox (my main browser and the only one I let my kids use) is the only browser getting around my pfblockerNG in my pfSense firewall. I use pfblockerNG to block ads and inappropriate content from my household. Here is a screen shot of the latest version of Chromium and Firefox on the same website load one after another. Also it doesn't matter if I'm running Linux or Windows.
Any help would be appreciated I don't want to have to switch to Chromium, thanks.

This is more me "thinking aloud" about the master password and how (I think) it works.
My take is that: Without it being set, all you saved logins can be seen and any saved passwords are accessible to anyone. Including remote programs, etc.
So, you set a master password, and all is good. Or is it?
Here's my concern:
You go to a site and it asks you for your login/password. They are either saved or you save them. You are prompted for the master password and they are either saved or retrieved.
You go to another site and the saved log in is auto-completed with no input from you. That's good in that scenario.
But say you get some nasty software. It starts looking through your saved logins.
What is stopping it basically getting them all without your knowledge?
My suggestion is - though some may complain - that even if you have entered your master password, when a site requests access to your saved logins (or how ever it works) you are told with a simple "Site log in requested".
I may be wrong in my concerns but I feel it is worth asking/mentioning so the problem can be addressed or my fears allayed.
Thanks very much in advance.
