I went to Privacy and Security permissions and in the box "Settings Camera Permissions" it appears to me that I'm only allowed to remove permissions, not add them. The box says that it contains the list of websites that have asked permission to use my camera. The box is empty.

I tried putting the desired website in the line on top, thinking I might add it, then tried alternatively both "enter" and "save", and nothing was added to the box below. The box remained empty.

Suddenly the backgrounds to many Firefox screens - browser, history, settings - changed from white to black. This makes it very difficult for me to read whats on these screens. How do I change them back to white?

The browser screen was black and I did that "about:config" thing and toggled the "browser.proton.enabled" to False which converted the background of the browser to back to white but all the other drop down menus are still black. The bookmark toolbar menu is black, the background of the hamburger menu is black, and the "customize menu" background is black. These areas are now difficult for me to see.

When FF developers start fooling around with colors in the FF browser they need to tread lightly and be aware of all accessibility problems their users may have. Where accessibility is concerned, one size doesn't fit all. Some people have problems with white backgrounds and others, like myself, have problems reading screens with black backgrounds. One simply MUST be aware of sight problems in users.

P.S. I tried uploading photos of the black backgrounds in question but the upload wheel just kept spinning. The photo size was within accepted parameter. Also, I tried to check the box "Email me when someone answers the thread" but that wouldnt work either.

HI! The latest version has enforced the dark mode in the address bar, drop out menus, file-saving dialogue window and browser background (so the pages that use the transparent background are almost unreadable now). Changing the theme doesn't work. Switching to the system' s colours doesn't work. Is there any way to get all of these back to the light mode?

Well, even the pulldown is not working here. None of the solutions for the garbled text works for me (and now that pulldown option isn't always working) and I am about to permanently change to Safari after years of being a Firefox advocate and user. Without any way to actually ask an actual person about this question/problem and not being a programmer I am exceedingly frustrated and disappointed. I do have to agree with the commenter who said we shouldn't have to go through this just to get a website to display. I've tried several times to upload an image but frankly I feel like just giving up

After I have started the computer and have opened the Firefox Developer Edition, there is no website content visible - everything is transparent. Links are clickable and context menu opens up, but the content is just transparent (screenshot attached).

When I close & repone the firefox, then usually on 5th to 10th attempt everything starts working until next reboot.

Firefox(Default edition v94.0) is working just fine with no problems on same machine.

When I first noticed this, version was 95.0b3. Now I'm on 95.0b12.

OS is Xubuntu 21.10 and hardware is HP ZBook Power G8 - i5-11400H, Nvida Quadro T600.

I've already tried: 1) opening on safe mode, 2) reinstalling using Ubuntu's "umake" commant line tool, 3) reinstalled by downloading it from https://download.mozilla.org/?product=firefox-devedition-latest-ssl&os=linux64&lang=en-US and copying the files, 4) opening computer using both Nvida's and Intel's built-in gpu

but nothing have worked so far - still the issue persists.


Is there anything else I should try?

Thanks!

Being redirected to at least 3 different website ("smallbusinesssense.com",digitaladblog.com", and "d2hgor4uhkrF3c.cloudfront.net") while drilling down to articles on the web from NY Times, AARP, The Guardian and even Apple, Apple Seurity sites. Contacted Apple Support as the problem existed on my prior 16 Inch MacBook Pro that I traded in for my current 14 inch MacBook Pro...they tossed the problem to Firefox since I couldn't show that the problem existed on Safari. Tried EtreCheck to no avail, they had me delete a couple of files and that did nothing. Forced to now use Safari - not a fan. WOuld like to be able to use Firefox instead.

Hello, wondering if anyone else can replicate this problem or knows a solution, as its quite alarming that opening a web page should cause the whole system to immediately shut down.

The web page (tbf, advert heavy clickbait nonsense) concerned is:

https://www.lep.co.uk/health/coronavirus/dont-be-a-dick-warns-lancashire-county-council-as-controversial-new-poster-targets-unmasked-shoppers-3498413

Opening in troubleshoot mode seems ok, opening in Safari seems ok, but normal Firefox results in the shut down as page is loading.

Brief info:

I'm not sure how to explain the problem except to say that text in emails looks like random line breaks are being inserted inside words.

For the last several months I've had this happening primarily in Gmail messages but also on some websites. I've tried to refresh, I've deleted and removed the APPDATA folder and reinstalled, and removed/disabled all of my extensions and addons, but it's still happening. I've asked some IT staff at my company, no one knows why it's happening. Help?

Hi, since couple of updates back I can only make visible part of a page screenshot.

Manual says:

What types of screenshots can I capture?

There are several options for capturing screenshots:

   * Capture parts of a page: When you move the mouse cursor over the page, different parts of the page will be automatically highlighted. Click on the one you want to save.
  • Select a region of the page: Drag or click on the page to select a custom region of the page that you wish to capture. You can change the size and area to be captured using the marker points on the edge of the area.
  • Capture a full page: Select Save full page from the menu in the upper right.
  • Capture the visible part of a page: Select Save visible to save the area of the web page currently visible.

But I don't have any options, it only captures visible part of a page.
