Just installed FF46 on a Kubuntu system this morning. All my context/popup/hover menus have changed to Black text (on original dark background).

How can I change text color to White as it was up to FF46??

I have tried to take a snapshot but it is impossible since I need the mouse to select and the hover menus dissapear as soon as I move the mouse. Catch 22. (edit: found a way to get screenshot)

I posted similar topic after previous update but that time I decided update and infection detection are not as connected. My previous post: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1120200 But today after the latest update I got notification from AVG again. In my opinion this is a real problem and IS connected with the update. Screenshot attached.

It might be connected with add-on too. I have 96 and some don't have Mozilla links anymore, only links to their sites.

Whenever I open Firefox it eats about 25% of my CPU and over 50% of my memory, even if I have nothing else running and only have one tab open with no active content. At times it gets up over 1 million KB of memory usage. This persists for several minutes after I close Firefox. In addition, I have searched Firefox support for other solutions and nothing has worked to reduce this.

I am running Firefox Ver 46.0.1, Windows 8 32 bit (KB3130896), 8gb ram.

Lately in the last 2 weeks, it has been crashing on me. The problem is that I can get 5 crashes in 1 hour or nothing for a whole day. I have tried the various solutions outlined.


Safe Mode - still crashes Fresh install - still crashes Plugins/addons/extensions disabled - still crashes

I have scanned my computer using Avast and Malwarebytes and nothing bad to report.

I changed my Home page and "When Firefox Starts:" to "Show my windows and tabs from last time". Now every time I start Firefox I am prompted that another application has changed my start page and I am given the options of either reverting to the original setting (the default) or keeping the new setting. When I choose to keep my setting, I am prompted a second time with the same options and default. When I choose again to keep my setting I can finally continue with it until have to restart Firefox. This is extremely frustrating and unless I can find a solution I am reluctantly going to switch to another browser. This problem is on my new laptop running Windows 10 and Firefox 46.0.1. I am also currently using Firefox on Windows XP desktop and an Ubuntu Linux laptop, neither of which has this problem. I am not certain of the Firefox version on either of these two systems

Please help me solve this problem. I have used Firefox for a long time and do not want to learn to use another browser.

This issue actually started when I *lost* all my add-ons (https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1290457) after updating to FF 47 ... I then downgraded back to FF 46. Shortly after that, my HD failed (and the issue stopped being an issue, obviously). However, Firefox runs slowly now. I know I have a few extensions, and it ran slowly before - but now, with a new SSD in the machine, I thought it would fly.

I tried to diagnose if it might be the connection -- but, I then found that to be unlikely (because I can't imagine a poor connection causing the CPU to spike) -- (see images). In general, it's always using a lot of CPU - but, 3-7 times per HOUR, it locks up (second image); in fact, it happened three times JUST while I was typing this bug report.

I was advised by a volunteer (I believe) to download the "Gecko Profiler extension" and do some analysis.

Here are three links to the data (I believe the third one happened *during* one of the "not responding" episodes:

https://cleopatra.io/#report=c00b64c17745769d47192a885151781dc9438e70 https://cleopatra.io/#report=c7abdc6b83d90f54dad1b04281f46b16bf44739d https://cleopatra.io/#report=43d908fec8b7bf87d2026b059b2f788b37d3308f

But, I have no idea how to read/interpret them.

Can someone please provide me with an idea of what's causing the hang-up? I really don't want to switch to Chrome (how can they insist that the tabs be *above* the address bar?) but, that's starting to look like my only option (which is a shame, since I've used this family of browser since Netscape, years and years ago .....)

When I open a link from another application and I am using Private Mode in Firefox -- and the private window is the most recent active window in Firefox -- how can I make firefox open the link in the private window?

To clarify by example: Firefox is my default browser. I am browsing in private mode and I want to open links from an email in my OS's mail client so they open in the private window (ideally in a new tab in the private window), not a non-private window. At the moment, external links open in a non-private window no matter what.


There was a time that Firefox would do this, but it does not do it any more. I think I may have killed this function the last time I reset Firefox. Is it possible that I had changed a setting in about:config to make Firefox behave how I want it to? If so, which setting is it!

FWW. I have tried changing the following preferences in about:config with no success:

browser.link.open_newwindow.overtide.external browser.link.open_newwindow.restriction

I've also found something like this mentioned in bug reports, but I'm not sure if I understand the resolution. If I do, then the resolution is that opening in a non-private window no matter what is intentional and there is no desire to add an option to change this behavior in Firefox. However, what seems to be missing from these reports is the fact that the Private window is the active window. It seems to me that links should always open in the active window, even if the active window is a private window, if the browser is commanded to do so. Otherwise, the browser is not behaving as expected.

Technical info:

Mac OS 10.11.4 Firefox 46.0b11 (yes, the beta channel)

So, power user. Tom's hardware moderator. Total fail on solving this issue. Since the 46.0 update Firefox has stopped switching to new tabs automatically when I create one by clicking the + for a new tab. If I open a link that is supposed to open in a new tab, it does, and it does switch to it, but it does not when I create a new tab myself.

Option setting for switch to new tab when they are created is enabled. I've tried the reboot to safe mode, open firefox and open a new tab, and that didn't work either. No new addons or plugins have been installed between the time this was working and now. Ideas or actual solutions, in the even anybody has encountered this, would be immensely appreciated. Just an annoyance really, but I dislike having to click the + and then remember to click again before typing my search string or navigating to a link in bookmarks. It worked before, it ought to work now. Thanks in advance for any help.
