Codemirror.net has lots of themes besides the dark theme in current dev tools (now Fx 74). The "instructions" how to add / use one :D are more towards if CM is a free standing editor, rather than if codemirror is embedded in a browser.

"Up to a certain extent, CodeMirror's look can be changed by modifying style sheet files. The style sheets supplied by modes simply provide the colors for that mode, and can be adapted in a very *straightforward* way. Well....

"To style the editor itself, it is possible to ALTER or override the styles defined in codemirror.css."

Continuing: "The easiest way to use CodeMirror is to simply load the script and style sheet found under lib/ in the distribution, plus a mode script from one of the mode/ directories. For example:

<script src="lib/codemirror.js"></script> <link rel="stylesheet" href="lib/codemirror.css"> <script src="mode/javascript/javascript.js"></script>"

The only problem is, I can't find a detailed enough example (only ones like the college engineering professors worked, leaving out several key steps).

There weren't many posts in their community about how to make it use another theme than the Default, that's inside of codemirror.css in omni.ja. A guy answering a question about this referenced the theme demo page, showing different themes on code. Said maybe you can read the source files for the demo page. I read it, but I'm not sure it's applicable when embedded in Fx.

I've searched a lot how to do it & there's not much info. Honestly, unless someone advanced enough to look at their instructions could simplify it, it's possible the fastest way is change the default theme colors in codemirror.css, then repack omni.ja. Codemirror mentions that method, but again, I think they're talking if it's freestanding or backend for some text editor, not embedded in a browser.

I'm not sure userChrome will work because it's not really part of Fx. At least I couldn't get it to work, putting the theme code in userChrome (either the normal or /chrome_debugger_profile/chrome). Though some people change some things in devtools using userChrome.css. It breaks when Mozilla changes anything.

The very few things I had tweaked in CM / dev tools UI, stopped working in Fx 74. Nothing I could do - a new profile, new userChrome file, copying a few rules - ever made it work in Fx 74. Most of what I found was people having a hard time changing devtools UI (in Fx or Chrome) w/ any consistency.

Two computers updated to 74.0 (64 bit) today. Prior to the update no problems. After the update several sites are ignored on both machines. No errors, warnings, etc. It is as if you never entered the url. Tried about 50 sites, found 4 that don't work (ones I use regularly). Found a thread about 70.1 that sounded similar which suggested setting dom.storage.next_gen to false. Checked and it was already false. Tried safe mode - no difference.

Once again, we have a new release (74.0). Once again, the developers who believe themselves to be gods do not think users should be allowed to set Firefox to allow Flash on specific sites without asking EVERY SESSION, somehow believing that inconveniencing the users is somehow going to force website admins to move away from Flash before the announced deprecation at the END of the year.

Now one of my daily-visited sites (the one for Daily Jumble) will not wait for me to enable Flash, and when I do enable it I then have to refresh the page to make it work. It is obvious that if what I have been asking for all along -- being able to tell Firefox to enable Flash always FOR THIS SITE ONLY -- would alleviate the problem, but since the gods cannot see through the eyes of the users, I am now further inconvenienced by their decision.

I maintain that they moved too quickly and too drastically to implement this change, and I have no reason to believe posting this will make any difference, but I again want them to know that instead of Firefox being the most user-friendly browser in the world (as it USED to be) it now has enough user-UNfriendliness to be as despised as Internet Explorer was.

I do not believe it to be an unreasonable request to allow this, because they could simply put that functionality in, then take it out along with all Flash support in the first release of 2021. But they think they know better. Sorry, guys, but you DO NOT.

I absolutely hate badges. They serve no point whatsoever other than appealing to arrogance and displays of pride, and they are extremely childish. I am NOT a child, I am an adult. What is with this phenomenon of 'baby adults' who want to bring 'play toys' into a serious discussion forum?

Is there any way to turn off/hide badges?

As the title indicates, copy/pasting does not work.

I'm on Windows 10, have installed Firefox about two days ago (I've recently switched to it) so the version of FF is up to date. I've looked up a few fixes before posting and they didn't work:

- Tried booting FF on safe mode and it didn't fix the issue - it clearly isn't caused by an add-on (and I've never had this issue in my previous browser with nearly the same add-ons installed). - other people seem to have had the exact same issue multiple times and it's lasted for years, so it's clearly a problem on FF's end.

Here is the issue described more specifically: Copying things from a tab from FF and into the online version of Word does not work - when I try to, the intended selection: - disappears a few seconds after I've pasted - or it does not appear at all - or when it does, it erases the entire sentence it was pasted next to it, which you can imagine is absolutely bothersome.

I've also tried to copy/paste statistics from a site called archiveofourown.org onto another FF tab. - What ended up being copied is only the last character of the entire content I was trying to paste, which I think suggests there's some issue with what's contained in the clipboard.

I'm mentioning these two websites because I'm guessing that something about them is probably conflicting with the copy/paste feature, however I'm hoping no one will have the gall to tell me it's those websites' faults and that I should just stop using them.

When pasting (while having hopefully copied the former selected content- and no, it wasn't the case), it always pastes the content which was last copied into the clipboard prior to that very attempt, which shows that the clipboard's content was not refreshed with the last selected copied one.

I'm surprised to see that FF has had such a glaring issue for years and for many other users, and updates have never given a fix for it. I'd like this issue to be fixed properly, because I'd hate to have to switch back to my previous browser. FF sports so many nice features that other browsers don't have, and it'd be a shame to ruin the experience with a bug so basic as the copy/paste feature being broken.

I have the Norton Password Manager (PWM) extension installed. When I want to log in to any protected site for which I have already stored the login info, I have to log in to my Norton account before I can log in to the PWM itself.* The box for that has a checkbox "Remember me on this device," which I leave checked, but if I close Firefox and open it again, the box pops up exactly as before, whereas on Chrome, the login info is entered already. I have tried restoring Firefox to its default configuration and entering the Norton login info on both the logins page and on the cookie exceptions page, but nothing works. What's up?

  • This seems to be a relatively new requirement by Norton, which I already explored in another thread.

Hello there, maybe you can help.

I changed from Windows 10 to Linux, the Fedora distribution. I used Firefox before and want to keep on using it. I can still see my bookmarks saved in the "desktop-bookmarks"-folder on my android-phone even now. I log into FF on Desktop, try to synchronize, and about everything synchronizes besides those bookmarks. I enabled the option to synchronize bookmarks on my phone and on desktop. I pressed the "synchronize"-button on ff-desktop and ff-android mutliple times. I restarted ff-desktop without any of my add-ons, with no apparent change regarding the issue. I restarted my phone and sychronized again. I created a test-folder called "Test", transferred some folders in folders, but only the shell of the folders themselves transfers, and not any the concrete bookmarks.

Pictures for example: There should be 3 bookmark-links in "Food". There should be about 10 different bookmark-links in "Test", but apparently only the extra folder-shell "Food" is transferred. Bookmarks can be added from the desktop and they will appear in the android-version.

I appreciate all help. Thank you.

WTF. I'm having an issue with your software and trying to get to your support bulletin board and all it does is take me round and round through the same set of menus giving me a bunch of pre-written articles. Stop with this shit. I want to ask a question, not read your stupid articles that don't apply. This is your lazy attempt to avoid having to answer people. You mask it under the idea that these "articles" will discuss common issue and how to fix them, but all it really does is distract people to the point that they give up.


I am having a problem with my bookmarks. I am using Firefox 74. If I bookmark a page it used to add it to my Bookmarks drop down. Sometime ago it stopped working. Now it only shows Bookmarks under "Recent Bookmarks" and they drop off the menu after I think 10 bookmarks.

I can still find them when I show "all bookmarks" under the "show all bookmarks" option in the Bookmark drop down menu, but otherwise if I don't immediately drag them from "Recent bookmarks" to an existing Bookmark folder, then they drop off the menu entirely and can only be found when showing all bookmarks.

Is this a holdover from when you guys eliminated showing the file drop down menus by default?

Why isn't this working properly. When I bookmark a page it used to bring up a dialogue box asking me where I'd like to bookmark it. Bring this back.
