I cannot change my firefox theme

I seem to be stuck on a certain background theme/persona. Whenever I go to change themes, nothing changes. I can switch back to the original default theme but other than that, I'm stuck with a snowflake theme I used during winter. I've disabled all my extensions through safe mode to no avail. I've cleared cache and cookies, updated plugins, searched for the stuck theme in about:config and in my firefox folders, etc. So far, nothing has worked... Any ideas?!

Isisombululo esikhethiwe

Alright, it's sorted! I had a lwtheme folder where theme-header and-footer were stored, but for whatever reason I needed to have the theme-header and -footer files outside of the folder too. I didn't have them! So, I transferred them over from the new profile I created to my old profile and presto! Then the preview wasn't working but I found this and solved that problem too - Thanks again everyone!

You get the orange Firefox menu button when the menu bar is hidden.

  • Firefox menu button > Options
  • View > Toolbars (press F10 to display the menu bar)
  • Right-click empty toolbar area

Well that was interesting knowledge and I thank you for the reply. That will help me better follow instructions. Do you know where/how I can find the lwtheme file?

The lwtheme file is located on your computer and not in Firefox. Like I said originally, you can find it here C:\Users\(Insert your User Name here)\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\ So if you go into your start menu in the bottom left corner and then click computers, you can hopefully navigate to it. The C:\ is probably your main hard disk drive, but it may not be. I've attached an image in case the above doesn't make much sense. Once you open your profile, you will see the lwtheme. Hope this works!
