For the last several FF versions, although I choose a light theme, the pull downs/menus always wind up dark with white text. It also shows up when I am editing options in FF itself. How do I stop this? I want a light background with black/dark text.

The browser webpage has been refreshed, the browser closed and reopened, and the computer restarted but the cache does not reset.

Why, with not very many active open windows, and just after opening, is FF using 175% of my CPU, not counting all the separate listings in my Activity Monitor. Plus it's using nearly all 16 GBs of my RAM. With every new update, I pray it will mean the browser will just work, and not use up all my computer's resources, but it just never does. Pretty soon, more & more of us will just give up on this browser, which used to work better, years ago, and has only gone downhill since.

To support dark mode for desktop users, I’ve added SVG versions of my favicon.ico with lighter and darker colors and use @media (prefers-color-scheme: dark) to have better contrast against light and dark backgrounds.

Firefox now (as of 103.0.1) supports SVG favicons (there was a (bug)https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1772632, but it's now fixed), but for the History list and the Bookmarks, Firefox is using the apple-touch-icon.

Testing – To confirm how Firefox handles SVG favicons and bookmarks, I used a new profile:

  • Set Windows to dark mode
  • Create new Firefox profile and open a new browser window
  • Navigated to one of my (sites)https://www.sbwfc.co.kr/
  • Bookmarked the site
  • Switch to light mode and repeat the navigation and bookmark
  • In both cases, the bookmark is the same – it’s the apple-touch-icon (see attached portions of the screen capture and the apple-touch-icon.png).

Using the apple-touch-icon on the Bookmarks bar has multiple issues:

  • Most touch-icons have a solid background color while many favicons use transparency, resulting in the touch-icon not looking exactly like the favicon.
  • Most touch-icons include a border area around the edge while most favicons go right up to the edge. When the image is shrunk down to 16px (CSS type pixels), because of the border area, the area for the working image is only 12px square.
  • Shrinking a 180x180 pixel PNG image down to 16px (or 32px for high-resolution displays) does lose quite a bit of detail. Most SVG favicons are designed to work well at 16 and 32px.

For sites that only have an ICO favicon, Firefox will use that image for the bookmark and history. (Firefox also seems to continue to use the ICO favicon if a site was previously bookmarked.)

Safari only uses ICO favicons (not (SVG)https://caniuse.com/link-icon-svg), so designers do need to be sure their ICO designs work with light and dark backgrounds (Apple’s logo is a #888888 gray, so is visible against a light or dark background, although not ideal).

Chrome and Edge use SVG favicons for the tab, history, and bookmarks, and, if the user switches their configuration, the icons on the bookmark bar can be switched from light to dark or vis-versa by refreshing the page. (Chrome seems to always use the initial light or dark version when clicking into the address bar).

This is probably how Firefox is intended to work, but it does seem to be a less-than-desirable solution. If it’s too complicated to use the SVG favicon for the bookmark icon (the way Chromium based browsers do), then would it be possible to only use the ICO favicon for the tab icon and the bookmark (like Safari and Internet Explorer)? Repurposing the apple-touch-icon doesn’t seem like a good solution.

Note: I did try changing the order of the links, putting the apple-touch-icon first instead of last, but it didn’t make any difference.

The code for icons for my site is:

`<link rel="icon" href="favicon.ico?v=2" sizes="any">` `<link rel="icon" href="favicon.svg?v=2" type="image/svg+xml">` `<link rel="apple-touch-icon" href="sbf-apple-touch-icon.png">` `<link rel="manifest" href="manifest.json">`

Thanks

I've been using Firefox for 25+ years, always keeping it up to date. I've been a customer of CIBC Bank for 20+ years and using their online website since its beginning. Last week I've been unable to login to my accounts without going thru an inconvenient and time-consuming telephone code procedure every time. Previously, this procedure had been in place only occasionally as a secondary method of identification.

CIBC advised changing my anti-tracking and cookie settings. After trying all the alternatives, there was no change. Checked out Edge browser, and it was the same. Checked out Firefox and Edge on a second computer and it was the same. Installed the Chrome browser, and it works fine!

No problems accessing any other website. Anyone ever experienced this? Any suggestions?

Hello. I've had this problem for over a month now ever since I switched to Firefox from Chrome.

Problem: Every once in a while, Firefox will suddenly be really slow and not load a page. When it finally does load, all text on the website is in the first font alphabetically on my computer. (I tested this by adding/removing fonts on my computer to confirm it was doing this and not just loading a specific font. I have a lot of fonts because I'm a graphic designer, and it's always picking the first font I have when they are all listed in alphabetical order.) This problem can occur on any website.

When the problem occurs: I thought it might be occurring when the computer or Firefox was low on memory, because the problem happens a lot more often when I am working (and thus have lots of programs and tabs open) than just browsing. I started working with both Windows's Task Manager and Firefox's Task Manager open so that when the problem occurs I can check to see what is happening. Memory usage when the problem happens is kind of high, usually around 50-70%, with Firefox being the most or second-most memory-intensive task in Windows Task Manager. But no other programs on my computer are slowing down when Firefox is, and Firefox's Task Manager is not showing any one tab/add-on using more than "Medium" usage. (Although notably, the tab that is having the problem is not showing up in Firefox's Task Manager at all.)

What I have tried:

  • checking and unchecking "use hardware acceleration" settings in Firefox. (It doesn't seem to matter, the problem still happens)
  • changing the default font settings in Firefox
  • closing and reopening Firefox. (This does fix the problem temporarily. After reopening Firefox and restoring the session, all pages load normally. But the problem will happen again later on a different site.)
  • restarting the computer (I shut down every night and turn the computer back on the morning. This problem still happens almost every day and often multiple times a day.)
  • Having fewer tabs open. (That does seem to decrease the chances of the problem happening, but it does not decrease those chances to zero. The problem has occurred with as few as five total tabs open.)
  • Checking add-ons (I'm not using very many add-ons in the first place—uBlockOrigin, Don't Accept webP, I don't care about cookies, and AutoDelete Cookies.) All of them are showing no or low usage in Firefox's Task Manager.

I am running Windows 10, Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-9750H CPU @ 2.60GHz, with 16GB of RAM.

Has anyone else ever experienced this issue? Does anyone know how to fix this? I'm really sick of having to close and reopen Firefox in the middle of work.

I asked this before, but I do not understand the thinking/logic for the answer I got. I have a specific website I want to maintain the cookies it writes to my computer. When I enter those cookie urls into the EXCEPTIONS dialogue box/window, then set to delete history on exit from FF, why won't the exceptions save those specific cookies? I don't get why there is an exceptions function if I cannot make those exceptions apply and save my specific website cookies.

If there is no helpful answer, there is no need to reply. In any fashion. Ever.

I am not sure what category this goes into since I don't know if this is a cookie problem or a security problem or what.

I can download individual files from Google Drive just fine. But when I try to download entire folders from Google Drive, I can't download them as of a couple days ago. It looks the file zips, but then it won't let me actually download the file. Instead I get an error message "Can't download file. To download this file, try enabling third-party cookies for Drive."

The problem first started a couple days ago. (I have Firefox set to update automatically. Checking my update history, it looks like it started with 103.0.1 when it was updated Aug 1) The day the problem started, after trying just about everything, I cleared all my cache, site data, and cookies. That did fix the problem. But today when I got on, the problem came back. It was a huge hassle to log in again and do 2FA for everything again last time. If I have to do that every couple of days, I'm dropping Firefox because as much as I love it I just can't.

My browser privacy settings are set to Standard. I also currently have Firefox set to delete all cookies and site data upon close, with the exception of a list of websites I use every day. That includes drive.google.com. I have since added every google website I can think of, including the ones that it looks like Google tries to access when downloading zipped folders (as seen in Chrome) such as takeout-pa.clients6.google.com.

Things I have also tried besides clearing all site data:

  • starting Firefox with all add-ons disabled
  • turning Enhanced Tracking Protection off entirely on Google Drive
  • Changing my security settings from Standard to Custom and changing "Cross-site tracking cookies, and isolate other cross-site cookies" to just "Cross-site tracking cookies"
  • Changing my security settings from Standard to Custom and not blocking any cookies at all
  • Going into about:config and changing the network.cookie.sameSite.laxByDefault setting from false to true (It was on false when problem started. I changed it back after troubleshooting.)
  • Doing all of the above in various combinations

If it matters, when I was changing the laxByDefault setting, I can see two other settings with that phrase but I don't know what they do exactly. If changing either of these would help, let me know. network.cookie.sameSite.laxByDefault.disabledHosts [the rest is blank] network.cookie.sameSite.laxPlusPOST.timeout [currently set to 120]

And Google Drive still claims it can't download zipped files. I am going slightly insane because I have to download several large folders from Google Drive every day. Currently my solution is to download all files in Chrome.

I can also try uninstalling and going back to 102 somehow, but that's not a good permanent solution. I guess I can also try clearing the cache again. But there's got to be a better way. It's way too much of a hassle to do that every couple of days.

Please help. Thank you.
