Sometime in the past few weeks the quality of any video I watch from any source has turned awful. Too much contrast, too vibrant. I checked all my settings on my monitor, and all is as it should be. I'm a photographer and aware of image quality and settings. Still images are perfect and the monitor displays stills correctly. My monitors are working fine. When I checked videos via Google Chrome, they all displayed perfectly. So, I can only deduce that it's a Firefox browser issue. I haven't added any new add-ons or extensions. I know that the browser has updated at least twice in recent weeks.

I have attached a screen shot of the difference between a chrome and firefox video. Please help. I don't want to change to using chrome. Thanks in advance.

Radio buttons on some websites neither display nor update when the area in which is should have displaed is clicked. FireFox 113.0.2 (64-bit) on Mac OS X 10.13.6 (High Sierra). This problem has been present for some time. On other websites the radio buttons do display and do upate when clicked by toggling the dark center. The minority of websites which don't work seems random, but does include some banking websites and the IRS.gov website. Often using SAFARI will work when FireFox doesn't.

The CheckBox at the end of this page "Email me when someone answers the thread" appears but does not respond to a click.

Hi,

Firefox is great but is there a way to add the Help => About Firefox webpage in Firefox home page? This is to simplify Firefox updates. Because although Firefox downloads updates, you still need to activate Help => About Firefox to update the Firefox version.

In Chrome you can add this to home page: chrome://settings/help and when you open Chrome it goes to this page and updates itself.

Does Firefox have the same capabilities so that we don't need to wait on users to click on Help => About Firefox to update Firefox?

Thanks and regards,

QB

I have a website that open pop-ups automatically using javascript. That is the expected behaviour of it. So I went into Firefox options and made an exception for that site. If I go to the site and wait so it can do its thing, it opens about a few of them, and then Firefox decides that the rule I have set up is garbage, and firefox decides to ignore it and block the pop-ups from the site.

Why?

Why on Earth does Firefox decides that he must do something against the rule that the user has set up. Why does it have this completely disrespect to the user settings?

I am honestly really mad at whoever decided that ignoring an exception from the user was the default behaviour.

Now, if someone knows enough what is going on they will tell me, go to about:config, go to this obscure command and change its value, value which I can't know without coming here and ask. If I create an exception, then I am in my right to expect that the browser should do exactly as the exception has been configured.

By the way I have tried with the troubleshooting mode and still happens.

Hi guys,

I hope you can help. To bring you up to speed, you can check below past articles for similar problems.

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1193905 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/901741 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/962174?esab=a&as=aaq

This problem has just resurfaced. In a nutshell, when I type "Lost IMDb" or "Tyson Wiki" in the URL bar and hit enter, that would take me straight to that page of that site. So "Lost IMDb" and enter would take me here: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0411008/

Now it takes me to random search results like so: https://www.google.com/search?sourceid=navclient&gfns=1&q=lost+imdb

Similar to "I'm feeling lucky" Google search is what I want back. When FF got rid of "Keyword.URL" search, I had to use an add-on such as: Google Browse by Name search engine to get similar results. Now also that has stopped working lately.

Can anyone help me get that type of search result back please?

Thank you kindly.

For awhile now when I use Google Maps on my Macbook Pro laptop (Ventura 13.4) with Firefox (currently 113.0.2), the road symbols (like interstate road symbol or state highway symbol) display as a box of dots. (See examples attached) The first attachment shows the symbols as dot boxes and the second attachment shows a similar example from Safari browser where they properly display. I have Ghostery and AdBlocker installed but turning them off doesn't seem to make any difference.

I also noticed that the interactive maps at the Phoenix airport website (https://maps.skyharbor.aero) do a very similar sort of "image blocking" (see attachment three) with the symbols they used to designate restaurants and retail etc. so probably not a Google issue per se so much as a web design thing around symbols maybe?

Is there something I can do or set in Firefox that will let the symbols display properly?

Thank you for your time and attention.

Moin all,

since some several weeks I'm facing a real anoying problem. Every Youtube (and other platforms) Video shows extreme brightness. It looks like as someone recorded the video directly in the sun. An example is the best so I attached a Photo with FF in the top left, Chrome in the top right and Edge at the Bottom. Only the frames have been a bit cropped for privacy.

The video shown in the screenshot can be found here. Today I also tried a fresh installation of my Win 11 and also FF (Had some free SSD around for that). But this had no effect, it looked the same. The only change I can see is when the Troubleshoot mode is being activated. But only while this mode is active. If FF is being reset or even new installation (like before fresh Win 11), no change.

Cause of this behaviour I also mentioned FF Video Stream is not HDR. The others show HDR but as not every Youtube Video can be HDR I think this is not the Problem. Anyway, I don't want to change my favorite browser which was working now for about 20 years.

Does anybody have a clue what is causing this or is it a bug?

greets indy

I'm on the ESR and just updated from 112.0.2 to 113.0.1. I had text rather than icons displayed on my toolbar. Now the text has vanished and I can't find a way to get text OR icons back. I have a disabled extension Classic Theme Restorer installed, but I thought it was already disabled long ago. In the Customize Toolbar dialog, the unused icons are displayed with text labels. When I drag one to the toolbar, it turns invisible like all the rest.

I am using Firefox Developer Edition in a work environment that only saves directories between weekly restarts by explicitly managed rules. As a result of some missing folders from my weekly restarts, I need to sign in to my Firefox account and enable sync each week. Currently my machine retains the %APPDATA%/Mozilla and %LOCALAPPDATA%/Mozilla directories + children.

What other directories are needed by Firefox Developer Edition in Windows to retain the user profile/syncing, et. al.?

With the dark mode of Firefox on Windows 10 desktop it is IMPOSSIBLE to see which of the several tabs is the one that is open.

I work with tabs not windows as I always need to see all the pages/websites open that I work with in one view, and so it is a hassle and nuisance NOT to be able to tell which tab is active, having to click through each one or guess.

It's one of those small yet significantly impacting on the user experience things which one would have thought by now Firefox developers would fix.

The ACTIVE tab needs to be in different colour may be on a yellow background with dark font so that people can EASILY find it with several tabs open on the screen.

Any thoughts on this? is there perhaps an option to enable it - which I am oblivious to?

thanks

For the past few weeks, Firefox has started crashing when logging into various websites. I've updated Firefox, cleared cookies etc, reinstalled Firefox, opened it in Troubleshooting mode, updated my OS, disabled extensions... everything I can think of. After some sleuthing, it seems to only happen when trying to log into a website. Doesn't happen on every site, which is weird.

This is so frustrating, please help!

Hello. My laptop died and according to IT is "gone". My hard disk however can still be accessed. I was able to access my firefox profile data from the old hard disk, and I was able to find the two firefox password files (key4.db and logins.json), as described in https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/profiles-where-firefox-stores-user-data. However, when I use the procedure described in https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1416465 to import the passwords on my new firefox on my new laptop, it does not work: firefox tries to look for a csv file, but there is none: I only have the "raw" db and json files, because i never had the opportunity to "export" my pwds as a csv file. Is there a way to import pwds from one version of firefox (the one running on my dead machine) to another copy of firefox (the one running on my new machine), if those pwds have not been previously "exported" as csv files by the "original" firefox/machine? thank you!
