In the menu drop downs under 'Edit' and 'View' and 'History' there are items that are 'inactive' and cannot be selected.

I have changed the background colour and look of the Menu drop downs in my CSS file but am looking for a way to show the 'unselectable' items.

In the Edit menu it is: Redo , Cut, Copy, Delete and associated keyboard shortcuts that have black text. i need light grey.

In the View menu it is: Text Encoding that is black

In the History menu it is: Recently closed windows

Does anyone have the code required to make them look light grey even if not 'selectable'. I have all selectable items with white text as the drop down background colour is teal.

I would appreciate any help I can get.

Take a look at the screenshots. The second device is called "Firefox on HUAWEI LIO-L29", but I renamed it to "Mate 30 Pro" (screenshot 2).

Why is the device name displayed not "Mate 30 Pro", as in the case of "Macbook D14"? I renamed the device in Firefox settings a few days ago.

Clicking on the Comments section in any ZDNet article (https://www.zdnet.com/article/) gets no response at all. The Comments section doesn't open, I'm not prompted to log in -- nothing. The cursor does change from the default arrow to a hand with pointed finger, as usual, and the Comments bar color flashes as it should when I click on it -- but that's the limit of interaction. I've tested the link with Chrome and Bing and the function still works there, but not in Firefox, and apparently hasn't since about the 26th of July. What's going on, and how can this problem be addressed?

About a day or two ago, random images stopped loading on sites I visit regularly.

I haven't changed anything on the browser. In fact, I disabled add-ons to see if it would fix the problem (it hasn't).

I'm already neurotic about deleting the cache and such after bold texteverybold text session every day.

It only occurs on Firefox desktop (90.0.2 64-bit); everything loads fine on mobile and on other desktop browsers.

Hello.

Up until recently, I could click a link to a locally stored Python source file (.py extension) and it would display as a plain text file in Firefox. This is what I want; e.g., it is a way that I view my notes, refer to examples, and so on.

Starting a few days ago, when I click such a link, I now get a pop-up window with the two options "Open with" or "Save file." I have tried a number of things to get back to the old behavior, including deleting the handlers.json file in my Profile folder, running a full Refresh, and creating a new profile. None of these got me back to the old behavior: displaying the .py file as plain text.

If I set the "Open with" option in that pop-up window to Firefox, I just keep getting the pop-up over and over again, while a new tab is created each time.

Note: if I look at a .py file on GitHub, there is no problem: again, the file just displays.

I suspected this behavior is connected with my having installed the latest version of Python (3.9.6) a few days ago, and I just confirmed this by updating Python on another machine. That is, on the other machine, the .py file would display as plain text until just now, after I update Python there.

So, I believe the Python installation is the cause of the problem, but, nonetheless, it seems to me that I should be able to set (or unset?) something within Firefox to make .py files open as plain text, as they used to.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance.

Hello there - hoping for a hand to fix this. Several months ago Firefox crashed while it was in use - void of any update process. Upon reopening, the main window would launch and before any tabs could load it would crash again. I attempted to open in troubleshoot mode with the identical result. I gave it a break and used Chrome but in returning to this issue today the same has occurred. This time after the troubleshoot mode crash, I uninstalled Firefox and re-installed fresh (this was an upgrade from v89 to v92). Upon opening post update the browser crashed again. Each time this happens I have received a crash report screen which I accepted and it was reported as successfully submitted. However, when I open the crash report folder only two appear to have been saved - one old from the first occurrence (6/2021) and one from today(8/10/21). Both of these are linked below for review.

This is on an older Windows 7 machine that honestly I know should be updated but this is only used for light gaming and web surfing and I am not interested in an OS upgrade as I disagree with with the business practices of Microsoft - I find their policies are rather intrusive as a consumer.

I hope I've given enough information about the issue here and my system, thanks in advance for any help!

To help test some bugs in Firefox I installed Nightly a while ago alongside the regular Firefox.

Today when starting Nightly, it used the profile I use in the normal release Firefox, for work mostly. I exited almost immediately, but when I try to run the profile with regular Firefox, I get a warning that I'm using an older version of Firefox. See attached screenshot.

Is there a way to recover the profile?

Current FF version I have is 90.0.2 on Windows 64 bit.

As the title says, almost all of my bookmarks have completely disappeared without any warning. I didn't update firefox, restart it, or anything. I have no idea why this happened, as firefox has been working perfectly all day long, and only after i left my computer for an hour or two, did i come back to the terrifying sight that all of my nearly 630 bookmarks have fully vanished into thin air.

Oddly enough, i still have one folder, and a few seemingly random bookmarks left over, as to where the rest of them went, i have no idea.

I've attempted to restart firefox, log out, log back in, disable extensions, and more. The first thing i tried was to use the restore option, however when i click it, it simply says "unable to process file". Out of all the backups available to me, including a nearly year and half old one from an Old Firefox Data folder i had on my desktop, none of them work.

I also checked underneath profiles, and i saw that i had one more profile than i should, however when using said profile, it has absolutely zero of the bookmarks, so that's a no go.

I really can't wrap my head around what could've caused this or how to rectify it, and im sort of panicking at the idea of years upon years of bookmarks just disappearing at the drop of a hat.

My only solace is that it appears my mobile (ios) firefox app appears to have all of the bookmarks still saved and accessible, but i can't find any way to transfer those bookmarks onto browser.

Any help would be enormously appreciated
