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.

Hope someone can help.

When I use full screen for some websites, it darkens after about 2 - 5 seconds and my cursor also becomes harder to move. This only started to happen recently.

It is not my computer settings, I've tested this in Safari and it works normally. This makes videos unwatchable. It is like a dark screen suddenly appears over the video and only comes off if i move the cursor. It happens with netflix and prime but not youtube, udemy.

Just to advise after the recent update to Mozilla Firefox v96.0.1 there was a problem with Internet connection not then being available from Firefox.

For extra privacy I have Win 10x64 Pro set to the free Cloudflare free use DNS settings of 1.1.1.1 and 1.0.0.1 and this has worked just fine for several months now.

However, since the update as above, Firefox could no longer connect to the Internet.

However, my other Browsers: SeaMonkey and Tor worked just fine.

For security reasons, I never use Chrome, Edge or Safario, as they are basically insecure.

Thinking there was a router problem, I reset that with the pin through the reset hole at the rear, and rebooted the PC.

No further ahead, and I knew it was not a Malware problem either, as I use very good AntiMalware Software.

I switched off the fiber box for 10 minutes, restarted it, no change, Firefox still could not connect.

Aha, a look through the Firefox Settings > Network and checked the DNS setting, which had been default set by Firefox to "CIRA Canadian Shield (By Default)" - That was NOT the setting I had placed into the Win10 Operating System.

Cloudflare was the second option there, so I selected that.

I didn't try the third option of "Next DNS".

Saved the setting (Option 2 Cloudflare)

Rebooted the PC, and no further troubles.

That CIRA Canadian Shield (Default) by Firefox was a trap I hadn't run into.

Just thought you may wish to put this in an appropriate place, as a warning to others.

Experienced with all Windows O/S since 1993, every style of O/S Microsoft has had available, plus much other Software.

This is the first unexpected problem ever I've had with Mozilla Firefox.

I run this PC 24/7, never turned off except for a reboot.

I can run some Firefox 25+ Windows and a total of over 150 Tabs, Run SeaMonkey and Tor with over 100 Tabs between them, and can still do other work.

Pleaty of RAM and SSD's for Operating Systems, backup to HDD's for longevity.

Still using 20+ year old HDD's still good, but they don't thermally cycle (Always on except for reboots), and I am interested to see how long before a failure of one of them =- I just stor DATA on these old HDD's (Copy from elsewhere, so it doesn't matter if I have a failure of an old HDD.

I saw this topic in a couple of places on the forum, but the posts are from 2014/15, and some things have changed since then. Some updated instructions would be appreciated! I'm particularly concerned about my bookmarks.

Also, does it matter whether I had the same version of Firefox before and after the refresh? I'm not 100% sure that I did. Thanks.

I have lost all of my old firefox data (bookmarks, shortcuts, etc.) I think I downloaded a newer version of firefox by mistake. I have followed all the Firefox Help information to try and retrieve the data, but nothing works. I have tried each profile listed on the profile management page: not a single profile has my missing data. I created a new profile, that didn't work. I restarted my computer, that didn't work. I am using a Dell desktop computer with Windows 10, or possibly 11. Can you help, please?

Hi,

I seem to be unable to find this information:

I have an old computer A, with old Firefox data which is synced to Firefox Sync. I am logged in Sync on this computer. I do not care for this data.

I also have a new computer B with new local Firefox data. This computer has never seen Sync at all. I want to keep this data.

If I log into Sync on computer B, can I make sure that its data isn't erased and replaced by computer A's data?

Thanks,

Every time Firefox throws out an update, it's a blind gamble as to whether the tabs, that were such a labor to get back below the bookmark bar after the LAST update, will appear again back at the top. Somehow the userChrome.css gets jazzed or some other thing is different. Then, suddenly, all you see are desperate people posting about how to get the tabs back where they belong. For the love of God Almighty on a roller coaster, isn't anyone at Mozilla thinking that it might be time to just make this a setting? I know I'm not the first person to request this. Which is all the more reason to make it a priority. Please. Shake somebody.
