I know it gets posted a lot but none have actual working answers. I have autoplay to be blocked on all sites, I will never want any site to autoplay anything, I'd rather not be ever to ever start the video than for autoplay to happen.

I've checked the about:config against other posts say are the answer but it it's never solved this.

Upgraded to firefox 96 and the problem persists - haven't checked much yet but instagram.com is certainly playing every post.

Hi, Firefox brings my computer to halt after a few minutes of usage. The only thing I did after opening the browser is go to support page and the FirefoxCP WebExtensions process memory usage went over 20 GB of memory.

I have tried restarting my MacBook a few times as well as restarting firefox, but nothing has helped. I’ve the latest version of FireFox installed, and using a MacBook Pro with 16GB of memory.

I haven't made any changes nor added anything new lately. I think it may have started after the last update.

Thank you for your time and support!

I have a bunch of bookmarks across multiple folders in my Library. Some in the Bookmarks Toolbar, most in the Bookmarks menu.

I noticed a while ago that when I click the Library button and go to "Bookmarks" I only see the Recently Added Bookmarks, without my folder structure.

I thought that maybe this is because the Recently Added list overflows and my actual bookmarks structure isn't displayed so I created userChrome.css file and disabled Recently Added Bookmarks completely.

Now whenever I click the Library button -> Bookmarks I only see the options to manage bookmarks or toggle the bookmarks toolbar.

The bookmarks are there - I can search for them, I can access them through the Bookmark Manager/Library (the external window thingy) and can see them in the "Bookmarks Menu" folder on the Sidebar, but they just don't show up in the Bookmark Menu accessed through the Library button.

I looked around here on did some Google searches but couldn't find a similar issue.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I like to mute all of my tabs so they don't play annoying sounds. However a very annoying mute icon appears when I hover over it and the "muted" text is shown under the name. I tried adding to my userChrome.css:

@namespace url(http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul); .tab-icon-overlay[muted], .tab-icon-sound[muted] {

 display: none !important;

}

This only removes the muted icon, and when I hover over a tab its favicon disappears. I also tried changing browser.tabs.showAudioPlayingIcon as suggested in [answer] but it isn't an option anymore.

How do I remove it completely without changing the context menu item?

I have been using the same custom theme for the past 3 years or so on both my windows 10 pro and dual boot Ubuntu 20.04. Recently, my windows 10 pro firefox started going into dark mode all of a sudden without me changing ANYTHING. The system theme and everything else stays the same. Then about 5 days later, my Ubuntu 20.04 firefox started to inherit this stupid dark mode as well. I have tried _ setting ui.systemUsesDarkTheme to 0 (number value) in about:config _ Changing to other custom color themes, and they all went into dark mode. _ Refresh Firefox _ Reinstall Firefox

When I went into "Ads on & theme" tabs, changing to system theme, it picks up the white theme mode. But Youtube webpage system theme mode pick up the dark theme mode.

I have a custom theme on Firefox called Charlies Red. Up until two days ago, Firefox would always consider it to be in light mode (which I prefer) whenever I'd use it. Now, however, it's in dark mode, and the only way I can return to light mode is to give up my custom theme and instead choose Light as a theme, which I don't like as much as Charlies Red.

Is there a way to force light mode on regardless of which theme I use? One source said I could go to about:config and create a ui.systemUsesDarkTheme number, setting it to 0, but I tried it to no avail and so deleted the number.

I am trying to transfer my firefox bookmarks from my old computer's hard drive to my new computer. they are both fairly current laptops, and i believe both are on windows 10 (the new one is on, i think, whatever the newest version of windows is). I cannot turn on my old computer, so I can't export the bookmarks, but the hard drive is fully functional. The problem is, I can't find where the bookmarks are located. I have tried looking through the files, I have "show hidden files" on, I have tried manually searching for "places.sqlite" and I have tried doing the %APPDATA% thing. I can see other folders on the hard drive very easily, so it shouldn't be the fault of the hard drive. If you know how I am able to find the files, please go through it step-by-step; I'm not proficient in computer things, and something that may seem very obvious and instinctive to you may be what I'm messing up on.

I always used a theme that is dark on the top side (tab area), after the last update, all pages went on darkmode without me making any change, google search, twitter, whatsapp web, even the initial firefox page. The only way to turn that off is to deactivate my theme. I dont want my browser to be entirely on dark mode. How can I roll back this change?

There are some browser games that are best played full screen, but I can't seem to find a way to keep the "helpful" menu from popping up over my game when the mouse hits the top edge of the screen. The best I can do is not play full screen, and detach the tab of my game to minimize the amount of tabs visible (and clickable) but there are still these "landmines" on the screen that actively sabotage playing the game without having the handicap of firefox taking over and messing with the screen.

Is there any way to completely disable the popups from a fullscreen mode, show no toolbars, tabs, or anything else (except when exiting fullscreen mode via the keyboard.) I want the mouse to have no interaction with changing the display except for the game itself.

Playing http://slither.io is a good example of what I'm talking about.

Thanks!

I'm running 96.0.3 (64-bit) on Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit. Firefox has suddenly started having trouble with my local library's website. Chrome loads it just fine. Here's a sample URL:

https://jocolibrary.bibliocommons.com/v2/record/S36C592151

Firefox tries to load that for 60 seconds or so and then says "504 Gateway Time-out The server didn't respond in time. "

When I go to the main site:

https://jocolibrary.bibliocommons.com

Firefox will load it, though it takes a while, and everything seems ok except it flashes the message "Could not retrieve availabilities via API. Baker_And_Taylor short-circuited and fallback disabled." When I try to use the Search function on the page, I get the 504 error mentioned above.

I've tried running Firefox without add-ons and the same thing happens. I've tried deleting the cookies for this site as well.

Firefox has never had trouble with this site before late last night.

Firefox keeps resetting Bing SafeSearch back to Moderate. This change occurs with every single search and the problem has only begun since in the last week to 10 days (it is now 1/21/2022.) I have cleared all histories and cookies and even gone as far as to completely reset my computer. It happens on all my PC computers, Win 10 and Win 11. It happens with all combinations of my Firefox profiles and all of my MS accounts. It happens when I'm not signed into any Firefox profile or Bing account. It happens in normal mode as well as private mode. It happens only with Firefox. It does not happen with Edge or Chrome. This is very clearly a conflict between Firefox and Bing SafeSearch.

I used to create desktop shortcuts to websites by dragging the padlock thumbnail to the left of the URL to the desktop. (see first image)

Now it does not create a shortcut but instead creates a file on the desktop with a .URL extension.(see 2nd image) Double clicking on the file will take me to the website, but as a file and not a shortcut, I cannot modify the name displayed or change the icon displayed.

Am I looking at something new in version 96 or have I inadvertantly changed something in the settings?

I just updated to 96.0.3 (64-bit). Now when I go to some sites, I am automatically redirected to https://ninkorant.online/, which I have never heard of. This has never happened before the new update and I can't figure out how to stop it. There is no longer an "Options" or "Preferences" choice on any menus. I just want to stop redirect or to block the site to which I am automatically redirected. Some "solutions" I get when I search this problem involve resetting my browser, which will eliminate my add-ons and bookmarks, and I want to avoid such a drastic action. Is this a glitch in 96.0.3? What can I do? Thanks.

unable to turn off safe search when using Bing search. After clicking the more bars on the Bing search page and setting safe search to off, when checking if it is off, it has reverted to moderate. Firefox is vs 96.0.1. Setting is set to normal, not strict. Windows 10 preferences are set to safe search off. All caches have been cleared. I took off all extensions, ran malware bytes & cccleaner & anti-virus scan. I tried a refresh of Firefox. Nothing has helped.

Using Edge or Chrome browsers on the Bing search page, Safe search turns off as it should.

--There was a power failure, last night, which knocked off my computer.  That may or may not be related.  However, with both Edge and Chrome accessing Bing okay, it seems to definitely be a Firefox problem?
