I saw this posted: (A) Right-click context menus, toolbar drop-down panels Starting in Firefox 89, these would flip to a dark background if the text on the inactive/background tabs was white or light. Firefox 96 has extended this adaptation to more parts of the browser. As far as I know, the only built-in way to avoid this is to change your toolbar theme to one with dark text on the inactive/background tabs. (The other way is the not-officially-supported userChrome.css file route.)

OK, I have been using a "not-officially-supported userChrome.css file" for quite sometime. Every 4th or 5th update (sic) screws it up. Apparently the latest (96.0.2) "looks" at my toolbars, makes an (erroneous) assumption and turns the main part of the home screen to black.

Not useful!

Suggestions to override Firefox's (less than helpful) assumption?

In the last few days every time I click on a link on a page, it takes me to Yahoo Search Engine, which I don't want! My choice is GOOGLE SEARCH ENGINE!

Also at the same time this changed, if I click to go to Add Ons it takes me to a Blank Page?

Never had these problems before, tried many outdated suggestions, which don't work?

I have Bing set up as my default search engine and it has worked fine for years. Now all of the sudden, any search I request, whether in the address bar or search window is completed by Yahoo. I have tried everything I know to try to fix this but to no avail. Also, when I click the Add-ons button to check for add -ons that I perhaps placed in error, a new blank tab opens up. I'm wondering if I should just delete Firefox and then re-install it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

BLOCKING FILE SYSTEM ACCESS -- DANGEROUS ALLOWANCE -- IDEAS & SUGGESTIONS

Hello to all, I was searching on Google how to block file:///C:/ or file:///D:/ because this is dangerous to allow!!! Shocking! And this is still not fixed after years… (மேலும் படிக்க)

Hello to all,

I was searching on Google how to block file:///C:/ or file:///D:/ because this is dangerous to allow!!! Shocking! And this is still not fixed after years of developments... Why? To keep this allowed makes it too easy for hackers, especially with multiple screens and a shadow/background screens available which can be running in the background, not seen, when hackers do that.. Kind of the way TeamViewer allows help to be provided remotely. Kind of screen sharing. Oh well...

Maybe need lots of complaints from you all to get this changed?..


Try yourselves to use file://C:/ with 2 // and file:///C:/ with 3 // and both are allowing access to the whole file system and any data file. BONKERS??? But why to use 3 /// if 2 // still works? Insider's job or programming conflict? Why would Firefox programmers allow that? I do not understand...

I tried to use selective website blocker, but for file:/// that addon says that the page is not supported... Maybe another type of addon could be developed for this to be blocked and secured once and for all, but not sure if Firefox would allow such an access or such a blocking. May cause issues with Downloads and accessing download folder from within Firefox. HOWEVER, they could block any system or file access from the ADDRESS BAR and SEARCH BAR and then do a work-around solution by developing a special warning 'dialog message' each time when any user (owner or remote user) tries to access forlder to see or use any file. That would be a lot like a guest account requiring password to access special folder or file, or wants to perform an action usually not allowed for a guest user. Password is required for that each time, or at leats a visual confirmation. That would help, I hope...

Would need to re-educate users after this! TOO DANGEROUS TO KEEP THIS IN SUCH A WAY AS IT IS NOW!!!!

DOES FIREFOX TEAM UNDERSTAND THIS? Maybe they forgot about this, maybe they did not figure out how to solve this, or maybe someone from an inside is helping hackers to have a very easy access? Not sure, but this "open doors to all system and data files for anyone" is shocking!


What about business or government people? What about online bullying and harrassment? What about privacy about which Firefox writes so much? Need more complaints to make this a serious issue. So, everyone, please write your own comments or complaints to Firefox and Chrome directly and maybe they will listen. This may take more work than we think, but my ideas may help. What about your ideas? Express them below and maybe they will help as well.


You all can ask them for this to be blocked or solved, so ask. Maybe my ideas will help to get this moving. Write your own to them as well. And Microsoft may need to get involved as well because Firefox, and from what I read, Chrome allows this too... Other browsers may be doing that as well...!!!!!! There are loads of various browsers available!!!! I read something about Windows Policies, but I do not understand what that is...


(( !!! )) If any of you will try any system changes in an attempt to try solving this issue, make sure you are okay to risk with crashed system requiring reinstall or recovery to be used, and then, write down all the changes you do in detail before carrying any further and applying them because that may ruin the system without a way to recover it.

Thank you in advance.

When trying to install addons from Firefox addons management menu (tab 'about:addons'), they not downloads. and Firefox says 'addon can not be loaded because connection problem'.

When trying open 'https://addons.mozilla.org/ru/firefox/' have 'PR_CONNECT_RESET_ERROR'.

I am thinking the reason of this errors is blocking requests to 'addons.mozilla.org' by my internet provider (Beeline Kazakhstan). Because when I trying to connet to 'addons.mozilla.org' using VPN or proxy I have no problems described above.

I have no idea why this internet provider or goverment needs to block host 'addons.mozilla.org' (they love to block various website just fo fun). May you help me bypass this problem? May be you know the way how to install VPN addon offline for Mozilla Firefox whithout acces to addons webpage.

Sorry for my English and thank you for reading (:

Hi friends,

Despite following the instructions the error still appears. I also clicked the "Got it" button in hopes that this would make the error go away, but it keeps coming back. My system has over 20gb free and I really can't see why this error is occuring.

Does anyone have any advice? (besides switching browsers)

After updating to 91 version almost all my addons stopped working in private mode.

When FF team decided to block all addons for private mode there was a setting in about:config to allow all adons to work in private mode, but it looks like it is removed in 91 (?) or renamed (?).

So, how to enable all addons to work in private mode at once ? I have a lot and clicking each one in its settings will take a lot of time.

Hi there

I have just updated Firefox Browser from 91.0.2 (32-bit) to 92.0 (64-bit)

The following website now gives a "Server Error" splash as soon as any search operation is attempted and of course, no results are found: https://isrc.soundexchange.com/#!/search

Firefox Browser vers 91.0.2 (32-bit) still works perfectly, but 92.0 (64-bit) gives 'Server Error'

I have tried safe mode, cleared the cache and checked all Privacy and Security settings. The only way to "fix" this problem is to go back to 91.0.2 (32-bit).

Please see images attached First showing 92.0 (64-bit) with Server Error Second, Working. Same site using Vers 91.0.2 (32-bit)

Any ideas would be appreciated.

A few days ago I started to get random popup ads. All of a sudden an ad will op up that says something like "you are at rusk, get Macafee" or "get Norton" etc. The ads pop up in the center of my screen and are about 20% the size of my screen. I have to click the x to get them to close. Sometimes there is the "don`t show me this again" option at the bottom left but even when I click ok the ads continue to pop up.

I`ve tried a few things but can`t figure it out. I`m retired and not a geek so it can get pretty frustrating pretty quick. I`ve lost my patience to scour through help articles looking for the exact sentence I need.

A step by step tutorial would be nice, thank you. I am using a laptop with windows 8.1. I use Firefox.

Thanks David

I had a similar problem last year when an auto update came through. After several suggestions didn't help I opted to reinstall a previous version and upgrade that. Now it's back again with the v94 update.

I've disabled ALL extensions. No help. Themes don't seem to make a difference. However, when I went to about:config and entered "toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.stylesheets" to make it true to allow chrome.css files to work it began immediately. Reset it to false and "X"s are back. Set config to TRUE and it screws up the "X"s. Again, all this is with all extensions off.

I hate the transparency of the tabs and menu bars so I need to set .css files. How else can I do it?

according to the add-on page in Settings, the AdBlock Plus add-on is enabled in my browser, but it doesn't appear to be working. so I am trying to access the menu options to control it. to do that, I need to add the icon to my toolbar.

this article: https://support.mozilla.org/bm/questions/955157

explains two methods:

1. go to Settings --> Customize Toolbars, and drag the icon to the toolbar. this doesn't work, because the icon is not there to be dragged (even after I restore defaults).

2. go to the View Menu --> Toolbars --> Add-on Bar and move the icon from one toolbar to another.

quite apart from the fact that it took me two days to figure out how to get the View Menu to appear, that procedure doesn't work either because after View Menu --> Toolbars --> the Add-on Bar is not listed.

can someone please tell me what I'm doing wrong.


thank you,

Thanks to Proton expanding my Bookmarks Menu off the bottom of the screen, I was re-arranging my bookmarks folders. While wondering which of my folders I had to prune, I noticed another in-built redundancy. The entry "Manage Bookmarks Ctrl+Shift+O" appears twice, at the top and the bottom of the menu. Incidentally the bottom entry is misaligned (Firefox v89 on Windows).

Is there a particular reasons for this duplication? Can I remove either of these entries?

Lately: these issues have popped up. I have all the FF updates. 1. I keep getting Crash Reports (never had thee before) 2. My passwords are not saved and I have to continually re-enter, esp. on Twitter and IG 3. When I close my computer to Sleep, Windows keeps asking me to Update and Restart.

   When I do, it goes through the process and then says Windows could not Update and 
    is undoing the changes. Is it a conflict with FF?
    I have the Avast Secure Browser and their Support said I can uninstall it and it would
