I was happy with the old version of Firefox I was using, but I wanted to install an addon that required a later version, so I "upgraded". Prior to the upgrade I has white text on a black background set as my default. After the upgrade those settings were maintained, *except* in most web text-input boxes (such as the text-box on teh Google main screen). These boxes either became reverse colored (e.g. black text on white background), or even worse, bleck text on black background, so the text is invisible. (This happens on secondary Google search pages.) Very annoying and not very useful.

Also, buttons like the Google search and "I'm feeling lucky" buttons are showing up blank, as does the "submit" button on THIS page. And on some sites "captcha" boxes are invisible, making it impossible to register or login at those sites.

How do I fix this?

I've seen a number of suggested fixed for similar problems, ranging from editing the userChrome.css file to using "Stylish" to install overlays. None of these fix the problem. They either don't work at all, or they are overkill, changing a whole bunck of -other- things that I -don't- want changed. Also, they all seem overly complex for a problem that SHOULDN'T HAVE HAPPENED IN THE FIRST PLACE. An upgrade that trashes my installed settings isn't an "upgrade", it;s a downgrade.

Why does the iconised firefox window use a 256x256 bitmap? (Firefox 18.0, Centos 6.3, TWM)

I'm using twm on a new installation of Centos6.3, with Firefox 18.0. When I iconise the Firefox window the resulting icon bitmap (as used in twm's icons) is a rather large 256x256, rather than more usual sizes around the 16 to 32 mark.

I get the same effect with a remote session where twm is running on an older FC11 box but Firefox is running on the Centos one. In contrast, with Firefox 3.5.5 on the FC11 box the icon sizes are small as expected (and desired).

Investigating with xprop, I see that the _NET_WM_ICON(CARDINAL) property is set on the newer firefox and contains an entry for the 256x256 bitmap. It /seems/ like this bitmap is compiled in as renaming /usr/share/icons/hicolor/256x256/apps/firefox.png did not change the situation, and that was the only large firefox icon that I could find in the filesystem. Is there any way to tell firefox not to provide this large bitmap as a potential icon for the window manager?


EDIT: A satisfactory workaround in my case was to use ForceIcons as explained by AndrewA below. After inspecting the TWM source I found that the window name matching could be done on the WM_CLASS data as well as the name, so simply using "Firefox" as the string to match against works. Thanks again to AndrewA.

Thank you.

I recently upgraded from 16.0.2 to 17.0. The fonts used by firefox in the toolbar and the names on the tabs have changed to a dirty, bold look. I do not like it. In 16.0.2 I am using the default theme. In 17.0 I am also using the default theme of 17.0. I am running Windows 7. Since my home and work machines have similar configurations, the work version (still 16.0.2) has the nicer looking fonts. If this antiquated system allowed one to attach screen shots, I could visually show the difference brought about by the upgrade to 17.0

How do I get back the application fonts that were used in 16.0.2?
