I am starting a new thread and repeating what I had written in the old thread which had too many responses to follow coherently.

I am not sure what td47 means as I don't have this issue as I only use DuckDuckGo which is there when open a new tab.

What want to know how you get the icons in the header of the screen to be "seeable". I believe with my header I always had white print which is now nearly invisible. Not only that but all the icons up there shrank and became outlines only instead of solid objects! I have cats batik_01 theme. It seems all the themes I have ever used had write print but I got by ok til now. Is it that I have to have a lighter toned theme in order to see everything up there again or what?

I'd take a screenshot but you can't of the header/or I don't know how to do this.

I have my Firefox settings to open search results links in a new tab. I can get this to happen with Google, but I *rarely* use it. I prefer Bing. My settings are for links to open in a new tab, and they won't do that with Bing.

I have read what others have suggested about fixing this problem. I made changes in about:config with no result. I opened in Firefox safe mode and didn't find anything on my own. Will check out any tips though.

This has only recently become an issue. I know that Ads have always opened in the same tab and I do not care to right-click or use ctrl.

Another issue I suddenly had with the latest new design update was that when I used the Bing search box, it started switching to an address bar search. I was able to fix that.

Anyone know a sure cure?

Hello Firefox People again, Thank you for fixing the scrollbar color boxes! My scrollbars are all the right colors and size now and my options buttons are working.The dotted lines on all my webpages left and have returned to normal again...but I still can't get my firefox color extension to load up at all. I'm just wanting to know if you're working on it or not. I see a lot of other people are having not a few quiet fits over the colors being messed up here. I'm not going to yell at anybody though...I can see you have an awful lot of "I wants"and "I'm leavings" to deal with. I have Firefox version 88.1 handy just in case, but to me the security fixes are more important, so I'll stick around and wait for everything else to work. I will use the themes others have made for now. Crossing fingers for fixes so I can play. Have a great day/night!

[SOLVED!] Firefox 89 Update: Can't Select Text, Drag Image, Use Scrollbar - EVERYTHING Drags Entire Window

[OK, I figured this out, but cannot delete this question, only edit it, so I've marked it as solved, and will add the solution below this initial question. Basically, it was due to my eternal battle with Mozilla's tabs bar placement, and the code I used to solve it]

Hi. After upgrading FF to 89 last night, besides the usual battle with Mozilla's insistence on moving the tabs to the very top, I've come across something that's quite serious, and rendering FF unusable: whenever I try to select some text, like on a page or in the Google search bar, the text cursor suddenly becomes the move cursor, and the entire window is dragged. The same is true when I try to drag an image directly into a folder. Also, forget trying to navigate a page by dragging the scrollbar - that initiates a drag of FF to another desktop (scrollbars within pages, like the one at the right of this text box I'm in, just try to drag FF up or down). So this is like holding Alt in Linux to click and drag the whole window in focus, and it's not something I asked for. The only thing I've been able to fix is dragging by clicking on an empty area of the menubar, navigation bar and bookmarks toolbar, with the following code in userChrome.css:

"#navigator-toolbox {

 -moz-window-dragging: no-drag !important;

}"

(That first line apparently was supposed to disable dragging in all areas, including the title bar, but it only worked for all the toolbars below the title bar, but I'm OK with being able to drag the window by the title bar).

I can still drag to select text in the address box, and the Search box next to it, and I can still drag tabs to reorder them, but trying to select text on pages is impossible. The only way I can sometimes select text, depending where I am (like in this text box) is to start the drag, let go of the mouse button to stop the drag of the window, and move the cursor till all the text I want selected is highlighted, and either hit Del to delete it, Ctrl+C to copy it, or type over it (I cannot, for example, stop selecting and go click the Bold button above, etc).

I can confirm that going into Troubleshoot Mode "fixes" this issue, but without my extensions - and with tabs way up the top (WHY???) - I can't use FF, I'm afraid. Now I'm guessing it's some code in userChrome.css that FF89 doesn't like, rather than an extension, and that bit of code I found at least stopped the dragging of FF by elements above the web page, besides the title bar (but those are unimportant), so if someone knows the code I can add that will fix this major nuisance, or option in about:config I can change, please let me know. Many thanks in advance for your help.

[THE SOLUTION: it seems the fix to the tabs bar issue - which after the upgrade to FF89 wasn't up the top again, but at the bottom of the entire window, invisible, and unclickable - meant there was some duplicated or conflicting code from a previous edit, though it was never an issue before this. I edited the "TabsToolbar" section of userChrome.css with new code that put the tabs back below all the bars, and all was good. I should have realised something was amiss here because I actually selected the code in FF last night to paste into userChrome.css. So I went looking through the file for anything useful, and actually near the top I found my earliest fix for this tabs issue, being the line: "#TabsToolbar { position: absolute !important; bottom: 0 !important; width: 100vw !important; display: block !important; }" - it had never been commented out, and strangely enough never conflicted with all the revised TabsToolbar code I've used since (sadly, that's been changed many times - Mozilla seems totally committed to getting people to use tab at the top!). So while I've solved this, if anyone understands the reason behind that code causing this really strange issue of click-hold-drag initiating a drag of the entire window, please feel free to enlighten me. Cheers]

Hello!

I've been using Firefox with a screen reader for a few months now because I recently had issues arise with my vision and needed to get one. I use NVDA, which is a free screen reader, and before the update to version 89.0, it worked flawlessly, but the new update has created a unique issue that I haven't found a fix for.

Say hypothetically that I am using Firefox and my screen reader is working fine with it. If I close Firefox and then re-open it, all webpages, including the new tab page, can no longer be read by my screen reader. All it will speak is the tab title or the word "unknown" whenever focusing on the webpage. This also happens when the computer is first turned on. The only way I can temporarily fix the issue is by reinstalling Firefox via the latest installer I've gotten from Mozilla's site, and once the installer itself opens Firefox, it works again. If I close the program or restart my computer, I need to run the installer again to fix the issue.

This isn't too big of a deal for me, since it doesn't take long to run the installer and Firefox is reliable after that, but I could see this being a bigger issue for other people with vision issues if they aren't aware of the installer fix. Does anyone know of a solution for this problem? I know it's a rather specific issue that doesn't apply to a majority of Firefox users, but this is a notable accessibility issue that I wanted to bring up since there doesn't seem to be a permanent solution to the issue in version 89.0 of Firefox and nobody else has seemed to have reported the issue as of when I'm writing this.

Additionally, if this helps, my current installation of NVDA is marked at version 2020.4. If any more specific information is needed, please let me know and I will try to provide it as quickly as I can.

Thank you!

This is only a Firefox problem, and I am able to use my back button normally in other browsers.

When I click back on my mouse after I am done reading a page, rather than going back a page it just assumes that I want to autoscroll, and allows to me scroll up and down the page rather than go back. How can I fix this? Most current version of Firefox on macOS.

This also is affecting the forward button on the mouse as well, it also goes to autoscroll. Scroll wheel click functions as normal (autoscrolling).

What can I do?

For about a week now, I have been having issues using netflix and youtube with firefox. I have tried answers provided in other questions, such as emptying the cache and clearing cookies - which works! But only until I leave the page or change what I am watching. Netflix is especially frustrating as it requires me to go to netflix.com/clearcookies every time I use it - which means I also have to re-log in.

I have no idea why this is happening and am getting increasingly frustrated. The problem appears in safe-mode (troubleshooting mode) and I cannot find a permanent solution. Any help would be appreciated!

I am using an offline web page as my default firefox home page and all was going well until I enabled sync. Now when I boot up firefox two things happen. It changes the address for my home page file to a folder NOT on this computer (the desk top) and won't retain the address I need for that folder.

I have just tried editing the bookmark for page. At the moment it seems to be working but I think sync is causing this issue and wonder if there is a fix for it?

Thank you.

Recently Firefox (both regular and dev edition) started showing monospace fonts in SF Mono Heavy variant. I use macOS 11.4 and Firefox Developer 90.0b6 but it happens with Firefox 89.0 as well, even in Troubleshooting Mode.

Below is a screenshot of a GitHub page. The same page rendered in Safari or Chrome on the same device show normal variant of SF Mono. Notice that the code on the page is rendered in heavy weight.

Running inspector mode shows that Firefox selects SF Mono Heavy even though regular variant is clearly present in the system.

I have tried disabling hardware acceleration and webgl. Are there any other ways to troubleshoot and fix the bug?

I just updated Firefox on an older laptop. Due to the age of the old version, I could not update Firefox but had to download and install the latest version (the old v was a couple of years old). I exported my bookmarks with no problem but could not find in the old version where to export my passwords. So I took screen shots of each of the password pages. When I installed the new version of FF, it found my bookmarks and imported them with no problem. It did not find and import my passwords (#@$#@!!). Sooooo... I spent all morning going to each page with saved logins, reentering my login info, and saving it. When I tried to go back to the pages, NO LOGIN INFORMATION WAS SAVED! WTFF?! I went into the password manager and there were NO PASSWORDS SAVED. I tried to enter the password info and it would not save them and instead gave me an error. Trying to create a new master password gave me an error.

WHAT do I need to do to get this... software... to save my frickin' login information and passwords??!!

NOT a happy camper right now! I have used FF for going on 20 years or so and am not a newbie or an amateur at this (which is why I screenshot all the password pages!).

OH, this is my SECOND attempt at asking support for help, the first time everything was lost when I tried to add a screen shot of the errors... Grrrrrrr...
