The custom screenshot select tool (the tool which lets you select custom area of the screenshot) only captures a part of that selected are. This is quite an inconvenience. I am on Mozilla Firefox 99.0.1 for Windows x64 system. I have added the screenshots.

Posted an Imgur link as Mozilla's website is seemingly stuck at uploading images.

Hi, so I noticed that the "WebGL Renderer String", which Firefox returns upon request, seems to be quite imprecise in some cases.

My desktop machine has a Nvidia Geforce GTX 650 Ti built into it.

Google Chrome for example returns the exact and correct renderer string: "ANGLE (NVIDIA, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 Ti Direct3D11 vs_5_0 ps_5_0, D3D11-27.21.14.5671)"

Firefox instead seems to assign and return a more simple, generic renderer string, in my case: "ANGLE (NVIDIA, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 480 Direct3D11 vs_5_0 ps_5_0)"

This is of course a great feature in terms of privacy ("browser-fingerprinting"). Nonetheless I didn't find any information about the rules which are applied, before such a more generic renderer string is being returned by Firefox. It would be cool if someone could share an insight with me!

Best regards

I recently installed a theme that I really like, but the search bar by default is a blinding white color and it contrasts heavily with the dark blue colors in the theme I picked.

Is there a way for me to edit the background color and text color of the search bar to be a different color? I've tried looking at different solutions and most of them make reference to userchrome or something else I have absolutely no idea how to work. Can someone explain to me, in the most simple and hard to get wrong terms as humanly possible, how to change the background and text color in the search bar? Is this something I edit the theme itself for? How do I do that?

Thanks in advance. Attached image shows the part of the browser I'm talking about if it somehow wasn't clear enough. I'd like to turn the white color into, say, dark blue or gray, and change the text color to a light blue or white.

I bring up yahoo mail in firefox, enter my userid and password, then verification methods appear. However, the verification methods are unreadable. Boxes where the verification would normally appear are blank, white. I open google chrome and they are readable. What setting in firefox needs to be restored to make these verification options readable? This issue just started in the last hour in firefox.

A short while ago, Firefox was automatically updated to 99.0.1 on my iMac running Monterey 12.3.1. Suddenly, for no apparent reason, the search engine is stuck on Amazon with no other search engine options available. I normally use Google.

Even if I go into the Firefox settings to the "Search" panel, it is showing ONLY Amazon as the available option in the pull-down menu under "Default Search Engine". In the "Search Bar" section, I have it set to "Add search bar in tool bar". But even if I set it to "Use the address bar for search and navigation", and then switch it back to "Add search bar in tool bar", Amazon still remains the only available search engine.

As a last step, I installed the "Google Search" add-on by 3Indian to see if I could get back my Google search engine, but Google still doesn't show up as an option anywhere, and I am still stuck with just Amazon.

Is this a bug in the latest Firefox build? Did the developers forget to enable something when they did this build perhaps?

Every time I close Firefox, whether normally or using Allt-F4, there is a short pause (1 - 2 seconds) then around 20 - 30 seconds of intense disk activity which locks everything else on my PC (Win 10 pro 64). If I hard shut down the pc (ie, switch off the power) there is no adverse effect on firefox after restart, so whatever it's doing is apparently unnecessary anyway. How do I cure this, it's irritating me intensely - enough to seriously consider using another browser

Running 98.02, Windows 10. Firefox keeps opening without all my tabs and other personalized information. Just a single tab or maybe 2 that have nothing to do with me. If I go to about:profiles, one of the profiles listed will (so far) have my lost information. When I recovered the first time, I quickly created a profile if the current, good configuration. However, now when the problem recurs and I go back to that profile I created, Firefox is once again a single tab of a URL I've never seen. I'm afraid I will lose everything!

BTW the first symptom was that when I clicked on a link in email (Outlook 2021), the link opened in a new Firefox window, not a new tab of the current window. This, despite telling Firefox not to do that in Settings and checking about:configuration to make sure it would not occur.

I am trying to use a new HP Spectre laptop which will be my all purpose home computer. I selected Firefox Browser as the default browser but I don't believe it has ever come up as my browser. It is loaded among many other apps (?). I used to call them programs (?). I get Edge, Chrome, Bing, and others, none of which I want or ask for. They just seem to appear randomly.
