Windows did an update and now my firefox background is BLACK! I don't like the dark. I've gone into windows setting and changed it to light. I've gong into languages and changed it to white background and Black Text. This has changed nothing! Please I'm so frustrated. I can't work like this!

Hello, I use DuckDuckGo as my default search engine. Is there a way to have my DuckDuckGo search settings load automatically when Firefox opens? It is such a nuisance to manually reload my settings every time I open Firefox. Is there perhaps a way to store the DuckDuckGo settings in Firefox? Thanks for your time.

Firefox Color "New Tab Background Color" reverts to black when theme is changed.

If I'm using "Blue Theme by Valou" and then change the "New Tab Background Color" to a light blue (#b7dff0), the theme changes (when I don't want it to) and the "New Tab Background Color" does indeed change to light blue. Unfortunately, when I re-select "Blue Theme by Valou" by disabling the unwanted theme and enabling "Blue Theme by Valou", the new tab background color reverts to a default slate (nearly black) color -- the light blue background is no longer honored when I open a new tab.

Please let me know if you need more information.

Recently, I've been unable to view paid for video, for example on Netflix. I get the following error message:

The WidevineCdm Plugin has crashed. FATAL Clpp-Error [Category 6 - Code 6002]: {"browserError":""}

I'm using a macOS 10.95 and, says Firefox,:

"Note: The current version of Google Widevine is no longer compatible with older macOS versions such as OS X 10.9 and 10.10. Only macOS versions 10.11 and above are supported."

So my question, since it seems my mac is no longer compatible with Widevine, is whether there a way for me to watch video on Firefox? Perhaps with another plugin? Or no plugin? Perhaps this is an issue to take up with Widevine?

Thanks in advance.

Recently I was having trouble using Firefox with my web based Outlook email and asked Microsoft for support. In their reply they recommended that I reset Firefox.

I am reluctant to do so as I don't want to lose all my add ons which have accumulated over time as I am not sure about how to get them back if I lose them with a reset.

Is there a way to reset Firefox but keep my add ons etc?

I would appreciate your advice and thank you in anticipation.

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.

I always used Bing as my homepage. Firefox will not allow me to change my home page to something outside your defaults. I have tried your instructions (I already knew how to do it as I have used Firefox for AGES). None of those work. It hasn't worked for a number of releases. I want to have the home page I want. There is no "saving" the home page anymore. And just changing and following instructions (even the drag and drop) had NO effect. If it close Firefox and reopen it, I am back to the defaults. I am kind of getting to the point that if I cannot save my settings anymore I just think I finally need to switch browsers to one that does.

HI! The latest version has enforced the dark mode in the address bar, drop out menus, file-saving dialogue window and browser background (so the pages that use the transparent background are almost unreadable now). Changing the theme doesn't work. Switching to the system' s colours doesn't work. Is there any way to get all of these back to the light mode?

Upon trying to download a .story file (Articulate Storyline 360) from a server, the .story file is automatically converted by Firefox to .zip.

In essence a .story file is a .zip file but I don't want this conversion to happen as it is annoying, confusing and adds additional work to my flow.

Does anyone know of a way to turn this conversion off? I assume it is a security feature. This does not happen in Chrome/Safari or FF for Windows

Here is a sample file: https://youtrack.articulate.com/api/files/55-36851?sign=MTYwODQ4NzUwMDAwMHwyMC0yODV8NTUtMzY4NTF8TnVnZjFLRFdMWmFDazRQaGxQa1RtNUJpekhI%0D%0ARU1KWWxWM1Z1OXRPVzMtbw0K%0D%0A&updated=1573143765061

I know Firefox recently changed some settings regarding automatic downloading of files, but I need to know how to stop Firefox from automatically downloading .pdf files that I view. Sometimes I just want to view a pdf without downloading the file. Firefox keeps automatically downloading the file, then after viewing it, I have to manually delete. I don't to do this! I just want to view the file and if I want to keep it, I'll save a copy. This is extremely annoying! Can I change the settings so that the file won't automatically save to my computer? Thanks

While trying to switch my default search engine in Firefox preferences, the only search engine that is available says "a browser" and has the firefox logo next it. There are no additional search engines to choose and it's driving me insane.

Is there something I'm missing? If anyone could help me get a google search engine in the toolbar, I would be grateful.
