1. Firefox for MacOS prompted me to "REFRESH" 2. After "REFRESH" Firefox is missing all my previous data (bookmarks, history, passwords etc). 3. "Old Firefox Data" folder is on the desktop 4. I have followed archived support help steps for this issue but did not restore previous Firefox profile. 5. Archived help solution says to ask the question again.

What's this infatuation with black everywhere recently. I find black to be good in some respects but not in others. Some webpages just look (read) odd in black and icons (of sports teams for example) look wrong. Though I don't mind my tabs being black (though I prefer blue overall) I don't want the rest of my page to be black, White, as has been in the past and in most web sites is too bright and contrasty at times. Is there a theme whereby the main page (not the tabs) is in a mid or light grey? If so please let me know since the extremes of black/white just don't work for me. Thanks in advance.

The themes I use normally have white backgrounds and black text. Following an update, the default colour scheme changed from a white background to a black background for web pages without the theme being changed. Google, YouTube, and Firefox pages are all using black backgrounds. I ensured that the Dark theme was disabled, selected the Light theme, then switched back to the theme I had been using; the black background returned when I switched back to the theme I wanted to use. I tried changing the colour settings under "Language and Appearance: Fonts and Colours: Colours..." to white text and black background and back to black text and white background, but no change was noticed at any point.

How do I change the page background back to white?

I cannot use the PDF Viewer on Firefox 91.5.0esr (64-bit). Instead, I get an incessant popup asking what to do with the file. I've tried:

  1. Selecting `Firefox` as the program to open the PDF. A new tab opens along with the popup.
  2. Selecting `Firefox.exe`. Same deal
  3. Modifying Preferences -> Applications -> "Portable Desktop Format ... (app or binary)" to Firefox. It won't let me - I can choose anything else or any other program, but choosing "Firefox" won't stick
  4. Opening Firefox in "Troubleshoot Mode" (Help -> Troubleshoot Mode) then attempting all of the above. The setting still doesn't stick.
  5. Disabling Hardware Acceleration, as one person cited that.

Every other thread has either cited changing the setting for PDF's to "Open in Firefox" or various names. Fear not, I've tried that, and am still at an impass. Any help beyond that is appreciated :)

How do I get back to traditional print preview? We had this problem before, and I set print.tab_modal.enabled to False. That worked for a while, but someone has decided to play Big Brother and ignore that setting. It's really annoying to have to change it for each print. And the preView under modal is frequently too small to be useful.

Once I selected Dark Mode to see what it was about and didn't like it. So I switched it back and it won't go away. I have reset to defaults and it works until I select another web page and then boom, I'm back in Dark Mode. This is an issue because if I switch to any other browser, there is no problem. I am about to uninstall your browser and go to Edge or Chrome and I do not want to do that. I have been with Firefox for a long time but never have seen this problem before. Please help me stay a loyal Firefox user.

I seem to have a problem with the dates in my browser. This has caused the weAutoPagerize add-on to stop working properly. This add-on to connects to a database to update itself. The problem, as the attached image indicates, is that my browser tells the add-on that the date is 12/31/1969, which means that it cannot be updated.

I've also tried the uAutoPagerize add-on, which uses the same database, and has the same problem.

It seems this problem originated when I had to restore my system. However, I already checked the date and time on my computer, and they are correct. It should be noted that this problem only occurs in my portable Firefox. In my desktop version any of the two add-on mentioned above work normally.

What could I do to fix this problem?

Thank you for your answers.

Hello....I would like you to INCREASE the number of SHORTCUTS I am allowed to add to my browser after opening a New Tab. Currently I can add up to 32 shortcuts (4 rows of 8 shortcuts) & that's it.

Why can't I add, say, 64 shortcuts to my New Tab after it is opened? Why not let me add as many shortcuts as I need, regardless of how many there are? The current maximum of 32 shortcuts isn't nearly enough.

Thank you.

I'd like to use the Startpage search as my default search in Firefox, instead of Google. And I mean the keyword-less search. I know what a search keyword is and I use several for special search engines (map, Wikipedia, dictionaries, parcel tracking, etc.). But the default search must work without any keywords.

And I want to use the custom settings they provide as URL parameters. I've tried with the cookie option but the cookie expires even after regular use. So the custom URL is the only working solution. Startpage support recommended me doing that.

I know that I can install the Startpage search to Firefox and it worked. But I can't combine it with the custom settings. So I uninstalled the extension, deleted the search engine and went to my custom startpage.com URL. Right-clicking the URL bar allowed me to add the search engine from there. But it also doesn't have my settings.

I couldn't find the search URL in about:config. Where is it stored? I need to change whatever Firefox thinks is Startpage's search URL to include my settings.

Changing the settings is critical because by default they open clicked results in a new tab which I cannot stand. I have enough open tabs, and there's still the back button.

I have found a few pages about address rewriting; how do I disable them all ? - searching single word into google (type "keyw" in about:config to disable it) - hiding http when not using https - trying to add "www" and ".com" around a single word when the word did not resolve

I consider most of them as security issues for various reasons.

And when editting an URL, I want firefox to keep showing the full url as it was invoqued; not add https randomly, or removing http other days. And the more I disable some, the more new ones appear.
