I know and admit I stuffed up.

One day a long time ago I was prompted for my master password.

When I clicked in that area/field a requester popped up asking me to pick a colour. Confused I picked one - and a bad one I now see.

So now when certain parts of a web page are opened the background colour is this horrible colour and I can't really read what is there.

I don't understand what I did or HOW I did it.

This is a cropped example of the bad contrast I am seeing.

As I said, I admit I stuffed up. But this seems to all have happened since that one time with the main password requester.

I made a clean install of win 11 , formated the drive and started fresh, when i first tried to login to firefox for sync, I had to reset my password when I managed to login, everything was gone, no bookmarks, no passwords. this is extreamly bad for me.

Is there anyway to recover this data from you ?

Or should I just simply migrate to edge or google so this wont happen again. I dont want to migrate, I like firefox. But I dont like losing all my stuff.

I am having issues with opening link for external applications. The application can be What'sApp or Zoom or Slack and when trying to open an external app I get a windows that ask for me to select the application to open the link.. When doing this the only option have I have is System Handler and Choose Application.. Neither option is helpful.. This did not happen with firefox packaged with .deb .. I am assuming that this deal with snap sandbox security.. I later read an article

I did a little reading and came across a link https://ubuntu.com/blog/how-to-snap-introducing-classic-confinement

Which instructed on how to create a snap with --classic confinement.. I am not sure if this will resolve the issue that I am having .. But I didn't find that I could install firefox snap with the --classic option.. I am not that familiar with snaps so I could be completely off but wanted to know if someone could look into it..

I would like to add an image but it doesn't seem like firefox will allow me to on this page. (Browse is not opening a window) Also copy and paste didn't work

Plus (+) Key not working as shortcut

Hi, I have noticed that if I want to use the +key (plus key) as a shortcut, the following commands don't work: "increase caption size" on YouTube "quicken autoscroll"… (funda kabanzi)

Hi,

I have noticed that if I want to use the +key (plus key) as a shortcut, the following commands don't work:

I'm using the latest Firefox version (91.5.0esr/64-bit) on a MacBook Pro 2021 14" (Mac OS 12.1) on a German keyboard. The German part is important, because if I switch my system language to English and correctly guess where the +key would be positioned, the commands work.

Most importantly, this only happens on Firefox. If I use the same commands on Safari, or Google Chrome, it works perfectly fine. So this must be a Firefox issue.

I would really appreciate it if there was a solution for this. I know this has been an issue for a longer time because I had the same problem on my last MacBook Pro (13", 2011, High Sierra).

Last but not least Firefox is great, and it is by far my favorite browser. So if there is any solution for this I would be most grateful (and if the solution somehow could be automatically included in all future Firefox updates even better!)

Thank you in advance.

Kind regards, M

PS: I apologize if this was worded awkwardly. English is not my first language.

The article explaining a particular add-on seems to say a Firefox add-on will chose what file to put a new bookmark in, and/or rearrange bookmarks. This seems to say that rather than allowing you to make a choice. It will even rearrange the current folders or content. Am I misinterpreting? Thanks!

Ответ мне не обязателен, хотя и будет интересно узнать, как удалось победить разработчика-создателя ошибки. Мне надо, чтобы к русскому языку относились с должным уважением и не коверкали слова. Ведь в современных редакторах текста так просто исправить и более сложные ситуации!!!

When I do front-end development, the framework I used is antd pro(Based on React). After the webpack packing the project, the developing page will be automatically reloaded(May be called HMR, Hot Module Replacement). But after the page reloaded, the CSS of the page is not rendered, It also need refresh the page by F5. Thus, HMR does not work correctly on Firefox, but it can work on other browsers like Edge, Chrome

When I try to launch Verizon TV on my computer, all I see is a red spinning circle. This started happening two or 3 days ago after a firefox update. I was hoping that today's update would fix this but it did not.

As suggested, I un-checked the DRM Content box but that did not resolve the issue. Nor did disabling the Widevine plug-in. When I did that, I receive the message, "You must enable DRM to play some audio or video on this page.. When I click the Enable DRM button, I see the same spinning red circle.

Since I have no issues watching Verizon TV on Chrome, this appears to be a Firefox/Widevine issue. Hopefully, it will be resolved shortly.

I try to like firefox and once upon a time I did like it. Now it seems it spends more time trying to prottect me and annoy me than anything else. Either images don't load, or if I'm on my laptop it won't let me access mic and video for a conference call. The thing is, I have AVG I have ad blocker I know my way around them and yet FF keeps getting in my way I turn those app and extension off/on and I'm just ANNOYED. Finally I just uninstall the mothersucker. I don't even know I have a question.....Oh yes, I want a clean simple fast browser that doesnt infantilize me or make me wear a helmet if I don't want to. I'm not a new user by any means, but this browser just bugs the shit out of me. Upshot I've gone back to Chrome as my default browser.

First of all , Hello  :) FF is a great wb and i use it everywhere i got a machine. Works fine everywhere .. but here on this computer. Why only on this machine ? Same distros ( linux mint 20.3 ) radeon video cards , amd family cpu's This machine is AMD FX(tm)-6300 Six-Core Processor × 6 the video card atm is AMD PITCAIRN (DRM 2.50.0, 5.4.0-94-generic, LLVM 12.0.0) though i had the same crash issue with a nVidia graphics card. Memory is Corsair and the memtest86 reports no errors. This is where i get a bit lost. Memory issues or hardware defects might explain this but where's one to begin ? Trouble is , no other application ever crashes and it's rock solid. So is FF to point a finger at or something else ? That's the objective of me submitting this report. Try to find out what's really at fault here and fix it.

The crashes happen at all times. It can also be right at starting FF and never even reaching the main window. I tried with and without the --safe-mode and it's the same that also happens.

So i submitted one of the crash reports ID: 656264f4-7867-4c55-8b36-0637e0220114

The report can be found here : https://crash-stats.mozilla.org/report/index/656264f4-7867-4c55-8b36-0637e0220114

Since there's so many i hesitate to put them all up , there's dozens since the system reinstall yesterday , i reinstalled the whole OS again yesterday to try to get rid of the bug. Any help to solve this once and for all will be highly appreciated . :) thanks for reading
