The new version, 89.0.1, has removed the contrast and separation of the tabs, making it hard to read now. Why?

I don't mean to be rude, but if you could get the decision-makers who authorize drastic changes to the appearance of the browser when a new release comes out to just stop "fixing" things that aren't broken, that would certainly satisfy me. I'm not picky about color schemes and "themes", but now the browser is difficult to read, and it wasn't before. I need to know how to restore the appearance of my browser to be the same as in the previous version, or I'll finally have to quit Firefox after all these years and switch to a different one. I don't want to have to do that, but I don't think I can manage to deal with this new hard-to-read low-contrast version. I'm sure someone thought this design looked "cool", and was therefore an improvement. I don't want to stifle anyone's creativity, but the browser I use has to be easier to read. Maybe the next release will offer a choice between the "look and feel" of the previous version versus this one. Thanks for considering my problem (and it is a problem for me), and I'll keep my fingers crossed.

Having some issues with a couple of websites where the text seems to be really bold, also its getting mixed up and overlapping or doing strange line breaks (see attached image).

This seems to only be on Facebook messaging or Facebook Business suite. Also in eBay messages. I've noticed it on a couple of blog sites too.

What can I do to fix this? Thanks

When browsing on my iMac 27" Retina full width screen views webites as if it's an iPhone. Which is very annoyning fills the window as if it was mobile phone. Sometimes when doing a supermarket shop it goes big when you move the mouse sideways!

I have a WordPress website using a Divi theme and this is displaying incorrectly. It's fine in Safari!

https://www.reevesdesign.co.uk/


This has only happened since the latest update Firefox 89.0 Weird I have just cleared cache and it views OK.

Still got that annoying big screen when shopping, that you can't get out of.

Anyone else getting these problems on iMac please?

Using Firefox default screen for Linux, how do I prevent search characters from being automatically entered on address bar when typing search characters on search bar. I only want search letters entered on search bar. I like to search with search bar only, not address bar. Is there a way to fix that or is it just something you have to live with?

I'm old school. My new tab and home page are my own. Sadly there has been a recent regression with respect to Containers with Firefox 89.0.1. I've been using Firefox Multi-Account Containers for a very long time. I've been using 7.3.0 since January. It seems no matter what I do it is now h*ll bent on prompting what container I want to open my home page in. It doesn't matter how many times I tell it not to do this on the "Open this site in your assigned container?" in the most recent version of Firefox all buttons related to opening in the Default container do not appear. I can tell it to "Remember my decision for this site" and open in the current container but that does nothing. It's right back to the prompting every time I open a tab. Has anyone found a way to end this extraneous prompting?

Hello Dear Folks.

Since the new Update 89.0 I've had issues with several websites not showing the text. As if it's written with "invisible ink". After marking it appears, its like black text on black background, or white text on white background. I have tried out different Themes, Addons, but none of them work. I didn't upgrade to 89.0, I think it happened automatically, because one day I just saw my Firefox layout beeing different. So it should have "auto-update" on. I have also attached images as examples.

Anyone else have these problems, is there any way to fix this or should I downgrade my Firefox version? Also my OS Windows 10 is up to the newest version.

If downgrading is the only fix, does it keep my "settings, passwords, profiles, bookmarks, etc"?

Thanks in Advance!

I have the latest version of Firefox & my windows 10 update automatically. After the last Firefox update this week I will be browsing a webpage and all of a sudden a Bing page is loaded over the top with a preformatted search term as though I was searching for that term. It's really annoying as I've always preferred Google anyway. When I search for something in the address bar, it loads a Bing page, but when I open a new tab it loads my preferred page, Google with Firefox. I don't have Bing selected as a search engine in my options. How can I get rid of it please?
