Since the recent update to Firefox 100 the only usable theme seems to be the light theme.

When using other themes, for example the dark theme, some areas of Firefox become unreadable. For example the tab bar:

https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2022-05-13-11-36-27-973853.png

How can I change these colors individually, so I can use the dark theme again but still see and read my open tabs?

When I try to load a png file with transparent background into firefox 35.0.1, the background appears black. I've already tried Transparent standalone images add-on with no results, including https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/transparent-standalone-image/reviews/?utm_source=firefox-browser&utm_medium=firefox-browser&utm_content=addons-manager-reviews-link and https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/transparent-standalone-images/reviews/?utm_source=firefox-browser&utm_medium=firefox-browser&utm_content=addons-manager-reviews-link

I also look at the previous question with the same name, from 2015: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1044582#question-reply

Unfortunately after trying to follow every step there, I have the same question as the OP did on 2/3/2015, except that the extension he recommends ( Old Default Image Style: https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/old-default-image-style/ ) and the other two recommended by cor-el ( Transparent standalone images: https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/transparent-standalone-imag/ and Custom Standalone Image Backgrounds: https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/custom-image-backgrounds/ ) are all dead links in 2022.

I would appreciate some help with this.

=======================

browser.urlbar.disableExtendForTests = True browser.urlbar.openViewOnFocus = False

1) Type about:config in the browser's address bar. 2) Confirm at the prompt that you will accept the risk and to view all. 3) Search for the following configuration preferences and set them all to FALSE (go slow):

browser.urlbar.openViewOnFocus = False browser.urlbar.update1 = False browser.urlbar.update1.interventions = False browser.urlbar.update1.searchTips = False browser.urlbar.update1.view.stripHttps = False

browser.urlbar.maxRichResults = 0 (Default = 10)

Good day.

My use case is the following. I use Firefox Developer Edition for developing websites. Usually the development happens on a certain part of the page. Most of the times it is not on the top of the page, so you have to scroll down to it.

Sometimes when the page is refreshed a jump to the top happens. So then I need to scroll down again. It takes a lot of time and concentration away if it happens dozens of times a day.

It often happens after I did some changes to the files on the page. It usually does not happen when I refresh the page a couple of times (when I purpously want to reproduce this problem).

I did try running Firefox in Safe mode, but it didn't help.

What can be done to fix this problem on my side? Is this a bug in Firefox itself?

In a previous thread 5 years ago, it has been asked how the e-mail filters can be backed-up. Back then, the suggestion was to locate the msgFilterRules.dat in the profile folder.

I just created a new user profile in Thunderbird 91.9.0 and I created some new filters, but the file msgFilterRules.dat hasn't appeared in the profile directory. Has the file been changed? Any tips on how to back-up the filters? Using Ubuntu 20.04.

SOLVED: one has to do the following steps:

1. Go to Help>More troubleshooting information>Profile Directory > Open directory 2. Right click, open in Terminal 3. type the command "find . -name 'msgFilterRules.dat'

this will list all the filters, dependent on different e-mail servers

I manage multiple Thunderbird client installations and would like to use the user.js file as a way keep a few options consistent across all clients such as calendar category colors. I can see changes needed from time to time and am looking for a way to deploy these future changes as efficient as possible. Since each installation has it's own profile location and I can't seem to find a Windows environment variable to locate Thunderbird profile directory location, I thought it would be nice to have a command in user.js pointing itself to a centrally located file to read in the contents as if the contents of my central file were actually in the user.js file. This way, I could add this framework manually to each client, but then update my central file to make future changes applied the next time the client is started.

 Thanks for any help!

On my Taskbar I frequently have several minimised pages in both Thunderbird and Firefox that contain multiple tabs of open emails and open webpages respectively. When I want to reopen a page I can click on the appropriate icon. If in Firefox I click on the closure X by mistake I get a warning: 'Confirm before closing multiple tabs'. I get no such warning when I make the same mistake in Thunderbird and can find I have lost several tabs and I may not know which they were.

Is it possible to set up a similar warning in Thunderbird, and if so, how?

Latest version of Thunderbird installed. Today, all attachments come in as winmail.dat files. I have removed and reinstalled LookOut (fix version), twice. Restarted TB and computer. No luck. PDF viewer is not compatible with my version of Thunderbird. Cannot open any file. I use this program exclusively. What am I missing? Thanks in advance. P.S. This seems to be a recurring issue.

I have the Download setting set to "Always ask you where to save files" and PDF handling set to to "Open in Firefox" if I now click on the download button in the opened PDF it automatically saves to the Download folder without asking, which is never what I want. If I set PDF handling to always ask, and open in Firefox from the dialog and press on the save button then I get asked where to save. This seems like a bug to me, as it is very surprising behaviour. Is there some way to always open the PDF in firefox but get asked where to save the pdf when pressing the download button in the PDF viewer?

Hi, Quite recently, my main INBOX (unified folders) does not have the incoming counter working. It used to pick up everything from all addresses. I have obviously done something to make this happen, but I don't recall touching anything ! When things are running ok, I just leave 'em alone. Coincidentally I'm sure, but it started around my last 'update'. Any ideas please ?

Running Firefox 100.0 on Linux Mint 20.3 Mate 1.26 I've noticed that websites like my bank use a "sub window" that slides in from the right to display the running balances. Prior to version 100, this worked perfectly with dual scroll bars, one for the main window and one for the "sub" window. Now, with version 100, the "sub" window has no scroll bar. I can control the window by using the keyboard up/down arrows, but the scroll bar for the "sub" window is non existent. You cannot have access to my bank account, but you can duplicate the problem with Google. Simply search for say, a celebrity, click on one of the displayed images, and the window that displays on the right used to have it's own scroll bar, beside the bar that controlled the main window. Sub window scroll bar is now gone. It seems you folks violated one of the Cardinal Sins of Programming: IF IT AIN'T BROKE, DON'T FIX IT. Scroll bars worked great before, Not sure whose idea it was to "improve" them. Rolling a Firefox update backwards is a logistical nightmare. Is there a possibility of a fix coming out soon or are we to live with this as a "feature"??? Thanks for your time.
