Hi all, I'd be grateful for some help with themes. I've been using Firefox and this specific feature for years and never had any issues with it. On my new PC, themes are suddenly looking like they have only been partially applied. Every theme so far has done this, I've checked all the regular customization settings and I'm stumped. As you can see in the screenshot, the theme applies to the tab and search bar levels, but not to the top level that shows the page title and system buttons. I know it's a cosmetic issue but it is driving me mad. Is this a "feature" in a new version of Firefox to make themes look like this? It looks more like a bug to me :(

I'm on Windows 10, brand new install on a new machine, I've only synced my Firefox tabs/bookmarks etc but it already looked like this before I did that or added my usual extensions. Any help or explanation why it's like this now would be appreciated!

When I try to manage bookmarks, I get a confusing hierarchy of bookmark folders that shows the same folder in multiple places, and I can't open it to see the subfolders. It totally confuses me. Naturally, I tried Firefox Help.

When I go to Firefox Help, I don't know how to enter search strings to narrow searches. Anything I enter gets me hundreds of topics, including strings attempting to find out how to narrow searches. Encasing strings in quotes does nothing.

Right now, I need help managing bookmarks. For the future, I need to know how to use Firefox Help correctly. Thanks.

I recently changed my default search engine to Bing, but not the browser, and noticed that my back page often doesn't work. I have to click and hold the back page arrow and mouse down to get to a page in the traceback chain that will execute. I assume this is not the result of Bing - I just report it because it's the only thing I've changed recently. Can this behavior be fixed?

I'm on Windows 10, build 10941.685 Thanks

I was led to believe that I had to update my Windows program several days ago. After multiple messages that an update needed installed and I needed to restart my computer, I finally did that and haven't been able to click on the icon for Firefox, or any other browser for that matter, ever since. I get the same error message if I try to use Microsoft Edge and Google Chrome. I already followed your steps to make Firefox my default browser. Comcast technical support was of no help at all. I also uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox and that didn't help either. Also, once I click on the "home" icon on my toolbar my homepage eventually comes up. I have also found that when I am trying to print from "File" on the toolbar there is no longer a Print Preview which I used all the time and that area gave me the option to change the % so that I wasn't wasting as much paper. What happened to that option?

Firefox won't bulk save (as) the files/images from the View Page Info > Media tab.

I can save them individually. I can also drag the image from webpages to save individually.

Problem is when I multi select, then press Save As & choose the folder it should go in, then click Save, the images don't appear into that folder I've supposedly saved in.

It used to work fine, not sure what changed.

Hello,

My firefox does't open the "New Private Window". Whenever I install firefox for the first time, the New private windows doesn't show any problem. But when I proceed, I can find out I can no longer open the new private window. Technically, the website opens, but it does not show the "purple-coloured eye glasses".

I think my computer is infected by malware because my searching histories are also saved in the incognito mode of Google Chrome.

Would you be able to fix this problem by updating the software?

Hello,

Why is firefox unable to prevent autoplay of bluecove videos on espn?

muted or non muted? doesn't matter. autoplay set in config? doesn't matter. manipulating settings in about:config? works until the next update.

It's seems to me that after each update the developers at espn are actively searching for ways to circumvent your technology. I've visited bluecoves website, including one they have for testing a wide variety of autoplay features and each one functions as expected - their videos do not play.

But go to espn.com and every single video plays continuously and loudly. Note I do not have an espn account and I keep my cache and cookies cleaned out. A website should still respect the settings in my browser.

What gives? What can be done about this? What is going on that espn is one of the few websites that seems to never respect any autoplay denial feature firefox delivers? How does this get fixed? Why when I do a search in the forums about espn there isn't a single search result returned? I type in 'chicken' and 4 hits. espn 0.

Please help

I want to load a website. It is listed in the URL with the Red Anti stripe through the Padlock Icon. I try to Google Allow Unsecure Site Firefox. I also try to rearrange my search words, over and over. All of the "solutions" suggested in Firefox support blog require changing 9 security settings in 3 different sections of the preferences for the Browser. That is not that difficult. Note, I do not see any "solutions" suggested since 2018 or earlier. Caveat. I have to go back into the settings and change them back and restart Firefox for security to move on to UnSafe mainstream sites.

Is there not an "Allow Once" button, or Site Exceptions option? If so, how may steps is it to get there? How many steps to return to save browsing? This choke occurs with low skilled, low tech Pages, not sites.

I am attempting to view http://www.fortvan.org/pages/pearson-air-museum I can find no way of allowing this site/video to load without redesigning the browser, running 40 miles, cooking a cake, and painting the neighbors barn?

Should I just got to Chrome, who I hate, or Brave and get free crypto tokens?

Unfortunately, when I uncheck "Ask to save logins and passwords for websites", Firefox will stop "Autofill logins and passwords", even the saved ones.

Does anyone know a workaround?

All the letters in my display are incomplete - like fractured or chopped up - missing parts of the typeface, regardless of font. I copied my bookmarks to a file, uninstalled and reinstalled a new copy of Firefox but it didn't help. I had to use Internet Explorer to get to the Mozilla file. It was choppy too. My Windows 10 wanted me to use Microsoft Edge & I noticed the fonts were not broken up in Edge. Is Microsoft trying to steer me to using their browser & causing a defective display in other browsers? How do I copy my old bookmarks from the file to the newly installed Firefox. I looked in the Help section & Google and do not have the option it tells me to go to in the Library on my new version.
