My appearance settings are set to dark mode but Firefox is only displaying in light mode. I've tried downloading various dark mode extensions to fix this, but they only seem to work on websites other than the firefox homepage or settings.

I have been a "light theme" user for 15+ years. Since updating to 96.0 today, a dark mode spreading across Firefox has been forced onto me, including:

  • New tab background
  • Background of any tab waiting to load a page
  • Google/Youtube background
  • Settings/add-ons/password menu backgrounds
  • Automatic username/password drop-down background
  • Background of the little box that appears on the bottom-left (the one which shows the URL when you mouse over a link)

I am unhappy with this and wish to have my usual theme back. Can anyone please assist?

(In addition, there is some sort of white border around the current tab, which I do not like)

Out of the blue my add-ons are disabled (see picture of my about:addons screen) and cannot be reinstalled. Every time I try to install an add-on I get: "Installation aborted because the add-on appears to be corrupt."

Setting xpinstall.signatures.required and xpinstall.whitelist.required to false in about:config did not resolve this issue as well.

I'm using an online image processing service. OK until recently when the resulting jpeg file download is blocked by ff for "potential security risk". [Literally the DL report says blocked but my photo software shows a jpeg file created that cannot be read.] An ff clone browser gets the file OK. Also there is a manual over-ride in ff that works one file at a time. I don't see any way to automate for batch or site itself. Manual for each file is a nuisance. I really don't know what I'm dealing with here but I doubt there is a virus or security danger for my home (not networked) pc. Thanks for any assist.

PS: I see in download help here, the threat warning of PSR [potential security risk] is ambiguous. Compared to "may harm your computer", a higher level. PSR says "uses an insecure connection . . . may be corrupted or tampered with during the download process". I read this knowing that another browser, and the ff override, get the file no problem. Can a security threat be concealed in a jpeg file? FF is relying on google-based protection, I believe.

Thankfully after a few minutes spent on a google search, I figured out how to put it back. What I want to know though is why it disappeared in the first place, and why there is even a reason to be able to remove it anyway? I never touched it, I never did anything to customize the toolbar. It disappeared entirely on its own.

You have very practical option for the address bar to separate it for the search bar. See the attached screen shot.

We have many local url addresses to the local web server, which the Firefox does not recognize as URL addresses and redirects to the search engine.

So I said in the option, that for the search purposes a separate bar should be used. But the address bar still redirects to the search engine although I said that that the address bar should be used only for the navigation.

Please make the address bar working for the navigation only if the option "Add search bar in toolbar" is selected. Otherwise there is no sense in the separate search bar.

I recently did a google search for "Helvetica Neue" font, but didn't ultimately end up downloading it. However, somehow, i've noticed that many websites now have it set as its body font, overriding the font-family attribute set in html. It says it's coming from main-9cd4cf4f.css

ex: this page shows up as helvetica neue for me http://frostyfaustings.com/games/

Any suggestions?

'Open links in new tab' and 'When you open a link, image or media in a new tab, switch to it immediately' settings do not work, even in safe mode. I'm on Version 96.0.2.

Changing these settings manually also does not solve the issue, tabs still open in the current window:

browser.search.openintab and make sure its value is set to true.

browser.urlbar.openintab and browser.tabs.loadBookmarksInTabs set to true.

Only thing that works for this function is CTRL + Click. Shouldn't these settings work if applied?

Thanks.

For years I have been using Firefox. If I clicked on a hyperlink in any of my programs, Outlook messages, websites etc, Firefox opened a new tab. That behaviour has suddenly stopped for websites including this one occasionally. It seems to still work for Outlook. Has Firefox changed its policy?

The advice on https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1283295 is to edit browser.link.open_newwindow (3) 1:current tab; 2:new window; 3:new tab; But that is already set to 3.

What other settings might work? And why has this been changed?
