I'd guess there's already a discussion regarding this, but I don't know where. Getting rid of the borders when there are multiple tabs open and turning things gray makes for a far worse browsing experience for me. Why would one string of undifferentiated text in a long line of tabs make things any easier? It does not.

I've found a helpful site that allows turning off the new theme, but a commenter advises that that option too will soon be disabled: https://www.askvg.com/tip-restore-old-classic-theme-and-ui-in-firefox-89-and-later-versions/

Is there an add-on that keeps the "classic" theme? I've googled how to provide feedback. One of those links is dead. What's the best way to make my thoughts known?

People love tech, but the older I get the more I see how it demonstrates a lack of ownership, that nothing is really yours on your devices, that what you're comfortable with is only one weekly update away.

I have Brisbane Times (BT) as my home page on Firefox (which is my main browser). Since I installed the latest version of FF, I have to login manually (not automatically) to BT and having done so when I close an article it logs me out of BT. Firefox asks of if I want to make FF my home browser. I see that BT is one of my saved logins but this logging out etc is something that did not happen with the older version of FF. So please how do I permanently make FF my home browser and how do I get it to remember my login on BT when I flick between articles?

This was the original thread <https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1363425#answer-1471931>

In short, to summarize the original issue, one day after clearing my 'recent history' 100% once, gmail.com never ever became autofilled again. I can't get it to show up, no matter what.

I even refreshed firefox, still didn't help, sadly. The only thing left is to uninstall FF but that's a headache I don't want to do. and there's no guarantee that it would work.

Tried disabling all my extensions except for the most obviously fine ones like momentum. Didn't seem to help. <https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1176553> This guy had the EXACT same problem I had. So I followed through these suggestions. Didn't help.

1. Does anyone know what the right keywords for this would be if I want to google others who have similar issues? Looks like I can only just hope other people have the solution. But I've googled things like firefox not suggesting history in omnibox search. Hasn't come up with anything that worked yet.

Hi, how do we set Firefox 97 to use the os/system print dialog?

Before Firefox 97 we could change these settings in about:config:

print.tab_modal.enabled = false widget.use-xdg-desktop-portal = true

But they are both gone now.

There is now widget.use-xdg-desktop-portal.print, which is an integer (2 by default).

But no matter what integer it is set to, we still don't get the os/system print dialog.

We are using Arch Linux, but we don't expect that to be of any importance -- after all, it worked before Firefox 97.

Thanks for your time :o)

I have already set both the print.tab_modal.enabled preference and the app.normandy.startupRolloutPrefs.print.tab_modal.enabled preference to FALSE. This did NOT solve the problem! I knew updating Firefox to version 97 would be a huge mistake, and of course it was. I'm so irritated...

Firefox automatically updated last night, and once again defaults to its own printer dialog box. I hate it. There is a link to use the system print dialog box but it only works for that specific print job -- which wastes a lot of time every time I want to print.

I can't find a setting to choose my system printer dialog box as default. the solutions from last year no longer work (about:config, then tab_mo, then print.tab_modal.enabled, set to false.

Anyone know how to fix this? It's enough to make me stop using the browser because the Firefox dialog box sucks.

Hi all, due to the occurring problem I cannot select topic to describe best my type of question:

Description of fault: Using Open Suse Leap current version 15.3 (KDE) with all patches installed (zypper dup: no action required) In either thunderbird and firefox application (but e.g. not in dolphin or k3b or gimp...) I have following problem: When pressing any entry in File ... View... bar I do not get a visible dropdown menu to chose from Firefox specific: When I try to use a bookmark folder in the bookmark bar there is no visible dropdown menu to chose from When I try to chose from a dropdown menu inside the content of a web site i will get no visible feedback at all.

BUT: when I want to chose a bookmark that should appear in a dropdown list and I move the mouse to that remembered position I see in the lower left corner the bookmark's address and I can chose it! The same happens with the dropdown menus from the the File.... View... Help line. I am able to chose a command once I remember where to point to.

So I guess all what is missing is the overlay plane where the menu contents reside.

This problem occurs in 95% of the time I use both applications, BUT there are 5% of the time where everything works like a charm. I have no idea what i do differently in that usage. Whenever Firefox works normal, also thunderbird does. Is it somehow a KDE releated problem?

How can I fix that problem? Any hints?

Thank you

Johannes

Hello,

I just upgraded to Firefox 98.0.1. And there doesn't seem to be an option to add Pocket suggestions to the homepage, as there used to be.

You can add Pocket articles that you've saved, but not suggestions from Pocket.

It used to be under settings - home - recommended by Pocket.

Has this been removed from the options?

I imagine this belongs in the customize controls area as it's part of settings that we are supposed to have control over and after messing around and changing everything to ask first I am still unhappy. At least I found the reason for my displeasure after reading about the new release of FF98.

Why did you change the protocol for saving files? Not having that dialog box pop up is very inconvenient. I haven't tried to play any files since FF 98 downloaded to my pc but I bet it's equally as annoying. Please go back to the old way in your next release. Some of us are in the camp of Who Moved My Cheese and we don't like this new change. It's bad enough that I have to deal with black background on menus etc due to the background I chose but this is nuts. Thank you.

Hello dear volunteers (followers),

After Firefox Update to 100.0, the Theme that I created (JOHN - Light Grey) stopped working properly. More Specific all drop-down and pull-down menus have been transformed to a "white" background color, overcoming the initial created one, which was "dark gray".

So I tried to revise (update) my "Theme". But this became impossible.

In Developer Hub, in Theme Generator there was a (pink) frame warning "the following manifest properties that your most recent version upload used in it's manifest are unsupported in this wizard and will be ignored: properties popup popup_text tab_loading So I couldn't edit the theme and even more I can't finish and save any changes. Well, Is there any skilled user to give me a hand ? I would appreciate too much any piece of advice ...

Herewith I attache relevant screenshots.

Thank you in advanced

Posting on behalf of a user who hit the VPN inbound queue with a question better suited for this forum:

The tab bar, toolbar, and address bar placement in my Firefox Desktop browser has recently changed. I have been trying to revert these recent changes as they interrupt my current workflows.

I DO know which prior profile save contains the desired info however, it contains many files and I DO NOT KNOW which files I need for the bars to be restored. If you could provide me the name(s) of the file(s) that holds the bars data, I am probably saved, hopefully saved.

I wanted to get an couple new addons to my firefox browser. But whenever I try to get one i get the message 'Installation aborted because the add-on appears to be corrupt' whether I save the file and install it in windows, or trey to install at the firefox addons page. I have done multiple re-installs of the latest browser, cleaned every file out of the system, even joined this community in case I have to get some kind of membership to get addons.

I am out of ideas to solve the problem, and I cannot find anywhere on the internet where the 'Installation aborted because the add-on appears to be corrupt'. problem I have is solved. Please help.

Hello all,

I used to have this setting whereby I had an icon at the end of the address bar which I could click on to copy whichever link was current at the time. I reinstalled Firefox or something due to a problem I had and I can't seem to find that option anymore. I can't remember if it was an add-on or an option in Firefox itself as standard.

I'm using Firefox 89.0 on a Mac.

Does anybody know how I can get that icon back?

Thank you.

Hi.

We have just begun to test Firefox 91esr for an anticipated rollout in October 2021. That's probably going to be optimistic. I'm trying to revert the toolbar and browser style to be an exact replica of the attached image (theme not withstanding).

We surveyed around 250 users and only 2 like the new FF91 toolbar and tabs. So got to go with the 99.9% of people. The userChrome.css file I am using is here: https://pastebin.com/8SFM3i1k

The userContent.css is:

/* Remove color effect filter on autofilled fields */

-moz-autofill {filter: unset !important;}

/* Remove filter on all fields */ input {filter: unset !important;}


I'm getting confused with the naming. We have Photon and is it now Proton? And what I'm trying to get back to is Australis?

Enabled style sheets and I can get the theme working. But when I add the chrome folder and it's contents instead of getting what you see on the attached image I get the default style with the ugly square tabs - the default in v78

I also can't seem to stretch the toolbar vertically. It's too damned compact.

The addons I want to use include new tab homepage, which seems to install but doesn't show in the list of add-ons and doesn't work. Perhaps I should approach the author for that issue.

The reload in the address bar works in 78.13, but in 91 it puts the reload button the on the far right... Another add-on problem for the author.

How do I remove the favorites icon from the address bar?

On webpages there is a settings cog in the top right corner. I'd also like to remove that.

I'm a PC builder, not a coder, so the css is provided by the generosity of other people.

thanks

I have visually-induced vertigo/supermarket syndrome.

I have a hard time aviding accidental scrolling in the new print modals. @#$%^ modals. Because of the accidental scrolling, because they scroll in front of other elements in the same window, and because the modals aren't designed for page down, and because they don't integrate with system-level print options, these don't work for me.

So far I've been using the system print dialogues instead of the Firefox and Thunderbird print modals, but I accidentally updated Thunderbird a few months ago, and lost access to the system print dialogues.
