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)

I use Kaltura to record lectures and post them to my course at the U of Utah on Canvas. This semester, Firefox will not allow me to open "my media" where the Kaltura recordings are posted on Canvas. I get the following message: It seems your browser is blocking 3rd party session cookies which are required for the Kaltura application. To resolve this issue, please update your settings to allow 3rd party cookies.

I copied the Kaltura web address 670542.kaf.kaltura.com that I can see in Chrome and pasted it into a Chrome browser and it goes to my recordings in Canvas when I use Chrome. The same site doesn't work in Firefox. How do I unblock Kaltura third party sessions? Thank you.

My browser updated to 96.0 (64-bit) about an hour ago. I've been running the Cheshire cat Theme for a long time now without it making the entire browser turn Dark (I just like what it did to the Tab bar and the Menu Bar). It didn't effect anything else -- not the Menus themselves and certainly not any webpages. But since the update--the Menus, the Firefox Home page, the Settings page, and even the Google search results pages--all have been showing up in Dark Mode. I switched around other themes I have and noticed that only the themes that are light in color stop everything from going dark.

It's a minor thing but I would really like to keep my set up as it was. I would really appreciate some help.

Suddenly the backgrounds to many Firefox screens - browser, history, settings - changed from white to black. This makes it very difficult for me to read whats on these screens. How do I change them back to white?

The browser screen was black and I did that "about:config" thing and toggled the "browser.proton.enabled" to False which converted the background of the browser to back to white but all the other drop down menus are still black. The bookmark toolbar menu is black, the background of the hamburger menu is black, and the "customize menu" background is black. These areas are now difficult for me to see.

When FF developers start fooling around with colors in the FF browser they need to tread lightly and be aware of all accessibility problems their users may have. Where accessibility is concerned, one size doesn't fit all. Some people have problems with white backgrounds and others, like myself, have problems reading screens with black backgrounds. One simply MUST be aware of sight problems in users.

P.S. I tried uploading photos of the black backgrounds in question but the upload wheel just kept spinning. The photo size was within accepted parameter. Also, I tried to check the box "Email me when someone answers the thread" but that wouldnt work either.

Hi, We currently connect to a vendor devices admin page that is inaccessible via Firefox because of the following error "Secure Connection Failed" (Error code: SEC_ERROR_INADEQUATE_KEY_USAGE) and won't present the option to proceed via the "Advanced" option. Long story.... The vendor is aware of the issue and as the configuration page is always accessed internally and uses TLS in some form they do not want to allow us to make any changes to uploading our own certs.

Anyway recently I was made aware of a keyboard shortcut to force firefox to bypass the error screen and force a connection, however I have not been able to find it since on the Shortcut guide for firefox. Can anyone provide me with this shortcut, It will save having to switch between multiple browsers.

Thanks is Advance,

So FireFox just randomly stopped working all of a sudden.

It cant load any web page what so ever. (Like there is no internet, except that other browsers work normally.)

Ive tried everything from the support page, (Disabled all of the protection in firefox itself, removed and added it back in onto firewall safe-list), ive refreshed it (the option before removing), and Ive reinstalled it as well.

Nothing seems to fix the issue, the only way I got it working, and it was just for a little while before it blocked up again, is by running it in safe mode with SHIFT key. But it opened youtube, and then blocked up again.

I have not installed any anti malware programs or anything new that would cause the issue, neither have i updated my system recently.

When i reinstalled firefox (and started it completely blank and new) I started getting "sec_error_unknown_issuer" on every website I tried to open. And now, every time I close firefox (still does not work) after like 15 seconds post closing it I get a "Firefox has crashed" report.

Real shame. Great browser, been using it for ages :(

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 really don't care for it and have tried looking into my settings but I see nothing that I can do to go back to the normal white. I am using Windows 11 on an HP All In One Desktop computer.
