How do you access Mozilla VPN after you have logged into firefox account - it only shows how to download and I have already downloaded it. I simply want to turn on the VPN and select the location but no instructions are available for this or at least the instructions are not clear.

Hello,

I have used EVERY proposed step in this article: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-extensions-themes-to-fix-problems#w_the-problem-does-not-occur-in-troubleshoot-mode

Problem GOES AWAY when FF is used in Troubleshoot mode BUT, when I open FF on normal mode and make sure I UNinstall all addons, extensions, dictionaries, language packs, use default theme and DONT allow hardware acceleration, then the problem STILL persists!!!

It seems that ONLY when in Troubleshoot mode the problem is resolved: NOT by removing all obvious addons or cotrols.

The problem is : ANY download button, does not work! (it is clickable, and yes, the browser seems to respond to it -rapid flickering of browser window- but a download dialogue is never opened -nor a download file is found in any corresponding folder) -then, once in Troubleshoot mode, the same button is normally functional again!

What is a proposed solution to that?

What could control could be behind the problem, that IS NOT USER switchable, but IS INDEED controlled (disabled) when Troubleshoot mode is selected???

Could there be a .json file (corrupted, etc.), that associates with buttons/elements (like the download buttons) and prevents the download to be triggered?, SO THAT maybe if I remove the .json corrupted file the new one will work fine, (maybe such a .json file is NOT loaded during Troubleshoot mode, but IS THERE whatever settings i choose through the settings of the FF)


Thank you.

PS: I have 14 installed plugins, about all same as on my FF93.0 on Win10 laptop, that the packet works just fine!

Despite what all the articles say, I much prefer reading on my desktop to my phone, so I find it peculiar that the Firefox reading list I've got going on iOS is nowhere to be found on desktop. Seems like plenty of people have asked about this in the past. Would really love this feature to be added soon!

Hello,

For a while now, I've had a strange issue where on random sites, Firefox won't load any images. I've already disabled all addons and had the same result, so that's not it.

Amazon is fine, all images load, but on sites like this one in the screenshot, they never do. In other browsers, it's fine.

The newest version of Firefox 89.0 (20210527174632) was installed the other day and now I have all background colors in light gray.Tried to change themes - I have default in light colors, but even the when picking the theme it is displayed with night blue background for tabs that are not open (what I used to have) - instead now I have all tabs and the menu bar in the same bland light gray color. Please help me establish my old color scheme before the upgrade. Thank you.

Re: "In your firefox preferences, choose language and appearance, under font, check you have background set to white, and text set to black."

Any screenshots for this example? I use 8 different browsers and Firefox is the most counter-un-intuitive browser I've ever used. Why would Settings refer to "Language" to set the background color? There is no link that I can use to Fonts and Colors under Language and Appearance to change the background color. All I can do is select a Default font, Size, Advanced, and Colors. But In colors the Background is evidently set to white but it's actually black. So I must map my way around Text and Background, Text, Background, Use System colors, Override the colors specified by the page with your selection above, Only with High Contrast themes, Link Colors, Unvisited Links, Visited Links, Underline links.....yada yada yada blah blah blah.

I don't want the option to mute the tabs at all. I just simply want to switch to the tab when I click on it.

How do I do that?

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.

When opening various webpages or within embedded media, I frequently keep getting an error message saying: "Secure Connection Failed" generally followed with the error code "PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR" (usually this code, however I've seen several others). While I can hit refresh or the "try again" option and it will almost always work at loading the webpage, it's incredibly annoying and obtrusive to have to do this with practically every website I visit.

I first started noticing this issue a day or so ago after switching on the HTTPS-Only mode setting in Privacy & Security. I've tried using all the various configurations of this setting (on, off, only in private) but to no avail. I've tried with my VPN on and off, I've restarted my device, and I've cleared my cookies and cached data. None of these have helped me. I'd very much like to find a fix for this so I can get back to work as normal. Thank you for any help you can provide

I'm currently using Firefox version 92 (64bit) on a Windows 10, if that information is needed.
