Changes to websites on version 106.0.1
Since 106.0.1 was installed the NY Times acrostic no longer shows a grid for solving the puzzle. Also, the Oregonian newspaper online no longer has arrows to move to the next or previous page of the paper. These things continue to exist on Chrome. I have other problems with this version but these are the major issues at present.
Also, I cannot check the box below for emailing me when someone answers my question. Please send me an email anyway.
I just noticed that Firefox was set to override the website choices of colors; I'm not sure how that happened--it wasn't my idea. In any case, I changed the instructions so it will never override the website choices. That suddenly resolved all of the problems that I've had with this version. I have no idea why, but my problem appears solved.Read this answer in context 👍 0

Can you attach a screenshot?
- use a compressed image type like PNG or JPG to save the screenshot
Make sure you allow pages to choose their own colors.
- Settings -> General -> Language and Appearance -> Colors -> Manage Colors
"Override the colors specified by the page with your selections above"
Try "Never" if the default "Only with High Contrast themes" isn't working.
If you use extensions ("3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Add-ons -> Extensions) that can block content (Adblock Plus, NoScript, DuckDuckGo PE, Disconnect, Ghostery, Privacy Badger, uBlock Origin) always make sure such extensions do not block content.
- make sure your extensions and filters are updated to the latest version
Firefox shows a purple shield instead of a gray shield at the left end of the location/address bar in case Enhanced Tracking Protection is blocking content.
- click the shield icon for more detail and possibly disable the protection
You can check the Web Console for relevant-looking messages about blocked content.
You can try these steps in case of issues with webpages:
You can reload webpage(s) and bypass the cache to refresh possibly outdated or corrupted files.
- hold down the Shift key and left-click the Reload button
- press "Ctrl + F5" or press "Ctrl + Shift + R" (Windows,Linux)
- press "Command + Shift + R" (Mac)
Clear the Cache and remove the Cookies for websites that cause problems via the "3-bar" Firefox menu button (Settings).
"Remove the Cookies" for websites that cause problems:
- Settings -> Privacy & Security
Cookies and Site Data: "Manage Data"
"Clear the Cache":
- Settings -> Privacy & Security
Cookies and Site Data -> Clear Data -> [X] Cached Web Content -> Clear
Start Firefox in Troubleshoot Mode to check if one of the extensions ("3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Add-ons -> Extensions) or if hardware acceleration or userChrome.css is causing the problem.
- switch to the DEFAULT theme: "3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Add-ons -> Themes
- do NOT click the "Refresh Firefox" button on the Troubleshoot Mode start window
I have a screenshot in my downloads folder but it won't copy and paste it here. How can I send it?
I've attached screenshots of the acrostic from the NYTimes. The second is as it appears (correctly) in Chrome; the first is as it appears (incorrectly) in the current Firefox. I had forgotten that I needed to attach images, not cut and paste them. I'd appreciate your help in figuring out what's wrong.
