I operate a website in which the body background is black. My background image has a black background. And inside the body, I place a white-background div, which carries the text. My issue is, the scroll trough is some shade of black and the scrollbar is a lesser shade of black.

On any white-body website, I have visible shades of grey and I can see my scrollbar controls.

Where do I go to apply !important CSS rules to my browser interface? I want to establish a suitable color scheme for my scrollbars that override website CSS.

//EDIT: I've found a few typos and fixed them, above. I have then added the text below:.

If I edit the stylesheet to change the body background color on the website, it affects the scrollbar coloring, and ruins the website appearance.

Only if some developer would use the Linux system colors in Firefox so that theme colors are the same in Firefox as they are in the Linux apps that follow the rules, then Firefox would be a much better browser. Is there an add-on that will resolve this issue?

Is there a CSS fix that I can apply? In past decades, websites wanted to color the scrollbars but they are the property of the user, not an extension of the website. What's become of that idea?

Hello. For searching with search engine I always use an advanced search providing options (never the address bar search engine suggestion of FF). Thus the engine suggestion, located on the 1st line of the drop-down list of suggestions, is just annoying due to its uselessness and its location before my helpful bookmarks and browsing history.

It's just a detail but the clearer the visual information are (without any interference, noise), the faster the right choice is made.

I tuned FF configuration as neatly as possible about this topic but the phenomenon persists. Privacy & security -> Address bar: 'Search engines' is unchecked. Search -> Search bar: 'Search bar in tool bar' is preferred to avoid it to operate in the type field (no option for no search at all).

           -> 'Provide search suggestions' is unchecked.
           -> 'Search Shortcuts' are unchecked for search engines.

Please see screen shots attached.

Could FF experts provide any help ? Regards. j-p

I'm posting this as a question because other ones on the topic are closed for comments

Anyway, I seem to have found the solution - sync clipboards using ClipIt (http://clipit.rspwn.com/) or some other clipboard manager

My case - hopefully FF devs find this useful: 1. Paste works - I paste screenshots, text copied from terminal, and other stuff 2. Copy text from FF page, or hitting a copy button on a page, works only partially - I can paste in other GUI apps but not in terminal

   The snippet does appear in ClipIt. When I select it, it becomes available to paste in terminal

3. Copy text from FF address box works - I can paste anywhere

The recommended solution from FF support is to "reset", which means "factory reset" - this doesn't solve the problem and kills all yous addins, bookmartks, settings, etc. FF support stop suggesting stupid solutions!

I have also played with the settings - there was something there wrt copy/paste - it worked for a few hours

My guess is that Firefox is doing something wrong when placing things in the clipboard. Placing in the wrong clipboard or maybe you should place it in multiple clipboards and please make it configurable in case you screw it.

I have an issue where Firefox is cutting off the lower half of each page (blank) when I print with reduced scale. It is an issue that only occurs in Firefox—I have tried another browser. I have tried three printers and it causes the issue on all of them. The issue occurs on all web pages I have tried. I have reset the print settings in Firefox, run Firefox in troubleshooting mode, and refreshed Firefox.

Print preview will show the pages correctly with reduced size, but when printed, the bottom half of each page is blank. However, in print preview, if I change the settings to only print the first page, the preview will then show the first page with the bottom half missing.

I am wondering if this problem is caused by the latest Windows update. That is the last change to the computer I am aware of before this printing problem occurred.

Anything else I can try to resolve this issue?

Hi,

I had been using this addon: [https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fire.../video-speed-control/] and I had no problems with it, until today when I went to increase the speed of a video I was watching, and it wouldn't work no matter what. Clicking to increase the video speed doesn't make the video go faster, as it should.

I uninstalled it and installed many other video speed controller addons, one by one, but none of them work at all either!

The video speed control had been working perfectly well up until now, and I hadn't modified any settings or anything else, that might cause it to stop working.

So how can I get this video speed control addon: [|https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/video-speed-control/] to work for me again? Help! I don't want to switch web browsers.

Thank you very much for your time and help, I really appreciate it!

Netflix and Prime Video do not allow video playing and give me errors associated with Widevine. Thing is, all the threads I have found about Widevine issues for Firefox on MacOS say that new widevine is not supported on or before MacOS 10.11.

I am using a MacbookPro 13" 2012 Running MacOS 10.15.17 (Catalina) Firefox 90.0.2 (64-bit)

Installed Firefox 78.9.0esr as suggested roll back solution and it did not change anything. Reinstalled Firefox 90.0.2 and now Firefox Plugins section is is telling me that "Widevine Content Decryption Module provided by Google Inc. will be installed shortly." but it doesn't seem to change. I have always stayed updated on MacOS and Firefox versions, and suddenly in early 2021 this has become an issue that persists to date.

Is the current status of Widevine for Firefox on MacOS BROKEN?

There are no roll backs that seem to work, and I can't find anyone else with my MacOS and Firefox versions that are reporting the same problem. Streaming is not only the way of the future, it has been the standard for media viewing for over 5 YEARS. Firefox needs to figure how to make widevine work from the get go or it will quickly go the way of the dinosaur.

I don't WANT to use Chrome (thought I currently do for Netflix), please don't suggest that as a solution.

Hi there. When watching twitch or youtube on one screen everything is just fine. I do have 2 monitors, and sometimes i watch 2 twitch streamers at the same time. or one with youtube and one with twitch. Everything have been working just fine, but for maybe 2 weeks ago, the UI or stuff around the video\stream im watching is flickering. This only happens when watching 2 videos at same time. It flickers on both. The video itself is just fine, but everything around is flickering, like chat on twitch, or the recommended videos on the rightside of youtube video window. Turning Safe mode on and it stops. uninstalling all addons, and the problem is still there. And still work fine in Safe mode. Havent done any changes anywhere with firefox, and only use 2 addons. And if im watching 2 videos and scrolls down and up on one of the screens, it flickers even more. Hardware Acc is off.

I changed my Windows 10 default font to something other than Segoe UI because I very much dislike Segoe UI. My doing so also changed the default font in Firefox 88, which is what I wanted. When I updated to Firefox 89, the browser no longer used my Windows 10 default font. That disappointed me a great deal because I did not like the font that Firefox 89 used. When Firefox 89.01 was released, that fixed the problem, and the browser used my Windows 10 default font, which again, is what I wanted.

I have now updated to Firefox 90, and it is not using my Windows 10 default font. Instead, it is using the ugly font that Firefox 89 used. In the Firefox 89.01 Release Notes, it says one of the issues that got fixed was "Fix various font related regressions (bug 1694174)" I am not sure if that is the "fix" that allowed Firefox 89.01 to use my Windows 10 default font, but I do know that after that fix, Firefox used my preferred font.

At bottom, Firefox 90 is not using my preferred font, which is the same problem Firefox 89 had and that Firefox 89.01 corrected. Please fix Firefox 90 so I am not stuck with the ugly font that it uses.

I have many duplicate entries in the "Send Tab to Device" menu, which I believe are from old installs. This occurs on both desktop version of Firefox and Firefox Android.

The problem is they do not appear in https://accounts.firefox.com/settings#connected-services so I cannot remove them. Only the actual devices I am using appear there.

Any ideas?

I don't want to have to manually change from Mobile to Desktop for each site that I visit. PLEASE, don't make me use Chromium....

Hi all,

I am doing this online course and all lectures are online videos using Wistia platform. I have recently installed Linux Mint 20.2 and latest version of Firefox but the videos don't work. Page loads fine except the video where only a large grey box shows with no controls. This was also an issue when I was using Linux Mint 18.xx but at least it worked in Opera which I was also using at that time. Now it doesn't work in either Firefox or Opera. is this perhaps an HTML5 issue? Don't think Wistia are able to offer any support and neither is my course provider. Their response was 'this is weird, works fine on our computers'.

thanks in advance for any assistance
