I have been a "light theme" user for 15+ years. Since updating to 96.0 today, a dark mode spreading across Firefox has been forced onto me, including:

  • New tab background
  • Background of any tab waiting to load a page
  • Google/Youtube background
  • Settings/add-ons/password menu backgrounds
  • Automatic username/password drop-down background
  • Background of the little box that appears on the bottom-left (the one which shows the URL when you mouse over a link)

I am unhappy with this and wish to have my usual theme back. Can anyone please assist?

(In addition, there is some sort of white border around the current tab, which I do not like)

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.

Since January 14 2022, my Firefox (and other browsers like Safari & Chrome) can't load certain websites, notably meetup.com and guardian.co.uk.

I've checked with both ISP and Apple support (Macbook Air M1 2020 on Mac OS 12.1). After running tests, both maintain there are no issues with internet connectivity.

I'm aware that Mozilla (as far as Firefox goes) is working on a solution and has offered a workaround. I have tried it and it doesn't work.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

I've been trying to configure my laptop to suit my needs, which differs from those on desktop. Basically, I trust both devices due to full-disk encryption, but it's possible to steal my laptop while powered on and unlocked. Hence my laptop approach is strict while adding a few exceptions that rely on successful authentication without remembering passwords.

I find it quite hard to manage exceptions. I've spend a couple of hours reading through this forum as well as numerous FAQs and guides, yet it appears there are a lot of conflicting options that override certain settings. The entire process is pretty counterintuitive and could use an overhaul from a UX perspective, where a simplification of the process might also result in the resources becoming more useful.

Anyway, one of my issues is that it appears I can't use asterisk * when defining URL exceptions for cookie settings. Second, unless explicitly defined, the protocol defaults to http and not https. I guess I should ask what happens before complaining too much. Example time:

1: I add the URL 'example.com' 2: Firefox converts it to 'http://example.com' 3: I add the URL 'https://example.com'

How will each of these exceptions work for the following: https://www.example.com https://this.example.com

And how can I mitigate this without a regex or similar, short of manually adding an extensive list of possible variations in between https:// and .example.com? To clarify, I'll need an exception for something like https://*.example.com

Finally, how is this affected by individual settings in the sections Enhanced Tracking Protection, Cookies and Site Data, and History? Any pitfalls I should be aware of?

Firefox 96.01 seems to be blocking access to popmoney through my credit union's website. The error message states that I must allow third-party cookies, but Firefox 96 doesn't have an option to specifically enable/disable third-party cookies. I can do this easily on Microsoft Edge, so I have to fall back on Edge in order to use popmoney.

Copy of error message:

Hello,

I have a problem with opening 2 or 3 websites. I get an error message which is basically the same as if the page did not exist. It does exist though. I tried a different browser and there it works. I also created a new Firefox profile and I can access the sites without issues this way. So the problem must be with my original standard profile. Can you suggest me how to fix this? I already selected these specific websites and had Firefox forget about them in my browsing history, but sadly this does not solve the issue. They are still unavailable.

I don't mind losing pretty much everything attached to this profile in order to solve the issue and be able to open the sites again. Saved logins would be cool to keep, but I can sacrifice those too if there is no other option. The only exception is my browsing history. I do need that one and cant afford to lose it, which is why I do not simply switch over to a new profile. Of course if there is a way to export my entire history to another new profile, then I'd happily take this path too. Just no idea how. Thanks for reading! I hope all is clear, I am not an English native speaker.

I have Firefox 96.0.1 and Windows 11.

I use Kaltura to record lectures and post them to my course at the U of Utah on Canvas. This semester, Firefox will not allow me to open "my media" where the Kaltura recordings are posted on Canvas. I get the following message: It seems your browser is blocking 3rd party session cookies which are required for the Kaltura application. To resolve this issue, please update your settings to allow 3rd party cookies.

I copied the Kaltura web address 670542.kaf.kaltura.com that I can see in Chrome and pasted it into a Chrome browser and it goes to my recordings in Canvas when I use Chrome. The same site doesn't work in Firefox. How do I unblock Kaltura third party sessions? Thank you.

Hi all, this issue has existed for awhile with me. On previous computers I had to use Chrome over Firefox because sometimes this issue occurs. I won't get error messages, or any freezing. The browser will open but after that the issues arise. My home page shortcuts won't appear. It will be a blank tab and that is it. If I press any of my shortcuts on the toolbar, or even search anything it will load and load and load. But won't ever crash, have an error or anything. Just a continuous load. Some times it will just open a new blank tab and do nothing. Then after closing Firefox through task manager, the browser won't even open. If it does, the same thing happens. This will happen randomly and quite often. Right now I am on Firefox after having to 'refresh' the browser in the settings and it started up but immediately the websites wouldn't load nor the home page favourite websites. I spammed the websites, opened about 20 tabs of different websites and eventually ONE of those tabs load. I honestly cant find any articles relating to this issue. Edge and Chrome work flawlessly but for some reason Firefox will throw in this issue for me. I prefer this browser over the other two but I have had to use Edge to find support when Firefox wouldn't work.

I am currently on Win 11 Dell XPS 13 and have reinstalled Firefox numerous times.

Any help will be appreciated.

HOWEVER, the volume popup meter still often appear when I watch videos on youtube. It is stuck on the screen and not only is it annoying and won't go away unless I restart. Killing the browser alone does not get rid of it.
