My appearance settings are set to dark mode but Firefox is only displaying in light mode. I've tried downloading various dark mode extensions to fix this, but they only seem to work on websites other than the firefox homepage or settings.

Greetings, Firefox community.

So a couple of months ago my Firefox browser (in a 2017 Macbook Air running MacOS Monterey 12.1) began having problems connecting specifically with Google websites (address bar search engine, Drive, Calendar, Gmail, YouTube, etc.).

Some days, my first search will go through, but then, with all posterior attempts, all I get is the "SSL_ERROR_HANDSHAKE_UNEXPECTED_ALERT" error code.

I have tried logging off my Firefox account, reinstalling the browser, resetting all settings ("Refresh Firefox" button), cleared startup caché, and clearing all caché and data from these websites, but I keep getting the code and can't get through to the website.

The websites work normally in Safari.

I'd really appreciate your help, as it is very frustrating to have to use another browser only for Google searches, YouTube and GMail (Firefox continues being my favorite browser).

Is there any way of making sure it works consistently? I need to right click then click "Open Link in New Tab" to have it work reliably. Maybe something in about:config? Using latest Win7 64 bit Firefox. I've noticed this for probably 2 years now at least. Not sure if it ever worked 100%.

Anyone know why I can't upload a simple small JPEG image to a Mozilla Support forum post?

I click the "Browse..." button under "Add images (optional)" under the box where the post is typed, select the file and click the "Upload" button and it just sits there saying "Uploading Image.jpg" but the image never uploads or attaches to my post.

I have tried from both Firefox (version 96.0) and Safari (version 15.2), but I have the same problem. I can't find any info about accepted file formats and sizes for these forums, but the image is only 478KB, and is a JPEG, so I can't imagine it's too big or an unaccepted format...

I am on macOS version 11.6.2. The image file is NOT locked.

Any info or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

I have been a "light theme" user for 15+ years. Since updating to 96.0 today, a dark mode spreading across Firefox has been forced onto me, including:

  • New tab background
  • Background of any tab waiting to load a page
  • Google/Youtube background
  • Settings/add-ons/password menu backgrounds
  • Automatic username/password drop-down background
  • Background of the little box that appears on the bottom-left (the one which shows the URL when you mouse over a link)

I am unhappy with this and wish to have my usual theme back. Can anyone please assist?

(In addition, there is some sort of white border around the current tab, which I do not like)

Just in the last week or so, Firefox has started reopening previous pages on startup. I DO NOT have that option checked in Settings. Is this a bug in the latest version? Is there some other setting I need to change so that Firefox will open on my designated home page (as it always has in the past)?

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.

Since I moved my profile to a new computer I have had two recurring issues that appear to be related.

Issue 1: I use the Tree Style Tabs extension. After about 30 minutes the sidebar hides itself and the Tree Style Tabs item disappears from the View > Sidebar menu. I have to restart Firefox to re-enable the Tree Style Tabs via the menu.

Issue 2: I have 'Open previous session and tabs' enabled in Preferences, and usually this feature works well. However, once the previous issue occurs (my Tree Style Tabs disappears) and I restart Firefox, it always reverts to the same tabs that I had open on the date of migration several weeks ago.

I am on MacOs 12.0.1 and FireFox and extensions are all up-to-date

Can anyone offer any suggestions as to why these might be occurring?

Dear TS, Friday January 28th 2022 Firefox updated my Win 10 PC to version 96.0.3 and wiped out everything from the previous Firefox version. No bookmarks, History, or add ons, everything is gone! How do we get everything back? I have a recent backup using Acronis on an external drive and even copies of old profiles from 2016. If the data can't be retrieved I'm thinking the only option is to remove Firefox and attempt restoring it from the Acronis backup. Sincerely, Robert.
