So one day Firefox just stopped responding, it started responding again, but now it just randomly stops and then starts again a few seconds later. Bitdefender detects no viruses and I tried disabling all extentions and addons. I have an Intel Core i9-10900K, an RTX 2070 SUPER, and 32GB of RAM, so that isn't the problem, but I did observe that when it stops responding, logical processors 2, 12, 14, and 15 spike in usage.

Hello,

after an internet session I'm using the "Clear Recent History" (STRG+SHIFT+Delete) function. Sometimes this window doesn't close automatically, when I'm click the OK-Button.

Is this a BUG?

Best regards

So for the most part I rather like update 89. It looks snappy. One annoying issue I'm currently having is that Firefox will no longer open maximized on start up. I click the shortcut and it opens in a little window on the left side of my screen. I click the maximize button and instead of maximizing to full screen it moves the little window onto the right side of my screen. Clicking maximize a second time finally gets the browser to open full size. Why is it doing this and how do I make it stop? Never did this before 89, now all of a sudden it does it. I'd like for the browser to open fill size instead of clicking multiple times before it finally decides to do so. Thanks.

Can't remove US English

I've just added UK English and restarted Firefox. Now, why can I not remove US English, even though that one shouldn't be in use, and I still can remove UK English, even though that one *is* in use (or should be)?

Greying out a button is only recommended when it's crystal clear why that is. In this case, I have no clue why I couldn't remove US English, and so gryeing out that button makes no sense to me. It should be enabled, and display a message explaining why a language can't be removed if it can't be.

For the moment, can someone please explain why US English can't be removed then?

After the recent update the colors of the drop down menus has changed. File, Edit, View, History, Bookmarks, Tools and Help. Prior to this it was white background with black writing. Now it is black background with white writing. I am using Abstract Electric theme which is a dark theme but prior to this I was able to have the white background and black text. Can't figure out how to change it, I am sure it is something simple but for the life of me can't alter it. I don't want any colors to change except the colors of the drop down menus. Please help.

A few months ago Firefox decided to double space all the items in menus. Reading through the forums many people didn't like this because of the amount of space that the menus now take up. Fortunately there was a work around, by setting 'browser.proton.contextmenus.enabled to false they returned to normal

This morning Firefox my got upgraded and the double spacing problem is back again. However there appears to be a bug with the setting and the menus won't return to normal. I'm now stuck with stupidly large menus that won't fit on the screen and lots of painful scrolling.

Does anybody have an alternative workaround until this is fixed?

Hello,

I am currently on Firefox 90.0.1 64 bit for Windows 10. I'm not sure if the issue started with this exact release, but just recently is has stopped displaying Yahoo search results properly. The website text is being overlayed with the link text and is unreadable. It seems to be related to the Webroot Web Threat Shield extension. If I disable the extension it displays properly. I have been using both Webroot and Firefox for quite a long time with no issues. This is something new.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thank you.

Dark Mode used to work beautifully in Firefox. Today it stopped working. I can choose Dark Mode in the settings page, and the settings page itself then uses Dark Mode. But Dark Mode does not work in any of the other pages, only the settings page. I think it must be a flaw in an update that was installed automatically today. (September 7, 2021)

Is there a way to uninstall this update and go back to the previous version. Dark Mode used to work beautifully and Firefox was my favorite browser. Can someone help? Thanks.

Firefox just updated a few minutes ago, and since the update my background in every website I visit is white. Previously my backgrounds were all black due to my Windows 10 "High Contrast Theme" being activated. Well since the update it seems Firefox "ignores" the Windows Theme settings and overrides them with its own. As far as I can tell, there is no way to make websites display with a black background like they did before the update. I hope this gets fixed.
