I've been with yellow folders for several years. In the version that I have now, version 111, no longer works. I was put at userchrome.css the following: @namespace url(http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul); .bookmark-item[container], treechildren::-moz-tree-image(container) { fill: gold !important; } treechildren::-moz-tree-image(container, OrganizerQuery_BookmarksToolbar) { fill: black !important; } treechildren::-moz-tree-image(container, OrganizerQuery_BookmarksMenu) { fill: black !important; } treechildren::-moz-tree-image(container, OrganizerQuery_UnfiledBookmarks) { fill: black !important; } treechildren::-moz-tree-image(container, livemark) { fill: orange !important; } .bookmark-item[container][query], treechildren::-moz-tree-image(container, query) { fill: dimgray !important; }

I do not know because it doesn't work now. Maybe version 111 no longer admits it? Do you know how to put the yellow folders?

In about:config I have set "geo.enabled" to false. -> www.google.com still displays the content in my language, darn.

I went went back to about:config and marked "only show modified preferences" -> to my surprise not only "geo.enabled 1" was displayed but also "permissions.default.geo 2" (though I never touched that one - so I thought they must be linked somehow)

I was curious and reverted "permissions.default.geo" back to default -> now it is set to "0" -> but "geo.enable" is still on "false" (so I am not sure anymore if they are really linked together - which doesnt make sense to me)

Now I don't know if I should leave "permissions.default.geo" on "2" how I found it, or on "0" which is the default. That's why I come here to ask:

==> What are the three states of "permissions.default.geo [0/1/2]" doing and how is it interacting with "geo.enable"?

When I open "Extensions" (about:addons) by clicking the Extensions icon, I want it to start on my own extensions, not Recommendations. How can I make "Extensions" open to the actual Extensions tab? Or can I remove the "Recommendations" tab entirely?

I already saw [to remove 'Recommendations' tab in about:addons]. But about:config

 extensions.htmlaboutaddons.recommendations.enabled = false

only removes recommendations from the Extensions tab. And adding

 extensions.getAddons.showPane = false

does not work, the Recommendations tab is still there.

Hi. I was suddenly having unexpected problems to log in in a site (https://www.lanacion.com.ar/). So I updated FF but the problem persists. Then, I uninstalled FF, downloaded it again from the repository and installed again, but the problem persists. Then, I downloaded directly rom the Mozilla site, expand it in the desktop and double click the program icon. The program opened and I was able to log into the site I was trying to. Interesting enough, the browser opens a lot faster than when installed. My question is: everywhere on the web the response is "you have to install the program" or "the program is already installed in your distro", which is true in my case, but one day stopped to work properly. BUT I'm not installing it, and it works apparently well... ¿how can it be? Thanks in advance for your reply. -Enrique.

I noticed this first when I had to force Google to go into dark mode even though firefox was already in dark mode.

I have searched through some issue reports and have seen a lot of people mentioning that their system theme is not being detected properly. This is not that issue. I can set the firefox "Website appearance" to dark or automatic at which point the UI of firefox itself does do into dark mode so no issues there. However if I go to a website that tries to query 'prefers-color-scheme' and set its theme accordingly it always returns 'light'. This is the case even if I set the 'layout.css.prefers-color-scheme.content-override' to 0 in about:config.

I used this website to test: https://septatrix.github.io/prefers-color-scheme-test/

The issue persists when opening a website in a private window.

Let me know if I need to provide additional information.

There used to be an icon just to the right of the star (for creating a new bookmark) on the address bar that when clicked gave a drop-down bookmark menu. For some reason it disappeared and I cannot seem to get it back. All I have been able to do is go to settings => bookmarks to get a list of bookmarks, which, however, doesn't have the bookmarks organized into the sub-categories I once had. How can I get that icon back on the address bar? I don't want to add on a bookmark bar or tool bar.

Hi,

I use a PIN for my Microsoft laptop and I have forgotten my Microsoft account password. I don't want to change the password as my PC back-ups using Paragon software "might" be tied to my current pin and password.

If I log into my Microsoft account with Firefox, I am prompted for an email address. After entering my address the password is automatically entered by Firefox. Great.

But the login details are not stored under Firefox - Paswords. There is no Microsoft entry in Passwords.

Where might the password it be stored?

Thanks Hans

Hi,

does anyone know what to do to make the background of the bookmarks icon and the reload icon the same as the icon with the site connection lock? I've exhausted all options in the userChrome.css and cant get the background to change. It's in hover state.

For reference I've added a couple of images, the first how the background is and the second how I would like it to look. I'm on macOS and latest Firefox 111.

I have physical limitations and need to use middle mouse button to scroll.

However, in Firefox, middle mouse button to scroll is interrupted whenever the mouse hovers over a hyperlink or linked object -- and, fun fact, there are A LOT of links on the Internet, so this equates to a very janky and sub-optimum experience, in my personal use-case.

How can I make it so that the middle mouse button functionality is not hijacked by mouse-over context? I've already tried/disabled middle-mouse-button-click-to-open-link-in-new-tab.
