Trying to install add-ons, I get "An unexpected error occurred during installation."

I checked the about:policies#active and InstallAddonsPermission is false.

The Firefox is portable and I was able to install add-ons in the past.

Windows 10 Firefox 88/89 64-bit PC It seems there was a compact mode before version 89? I don't know if that's what I want.

I would like to have a simple selection in FF Preferences to turn OFF the Proton stuff. I am not an IT geek and I'm not comfortable doing things like changing CSS code - if I knew how to do that stuff, I'd be using Linux not Windows. Since I'm stuck with Windows, I rely on a good browser like FF v.88 to take care of the technical stuff.

Version 89 seems to be OK with Proton shut off, but I hear this is a temporary fix. I also don't know if shutting off Proton fixed the spacing nightmare in Bookmarks - I lost mine reloading v.88 and haven't had a chance to look for them. (v.89 is on the PC upstairs - this one is still on v.88.)

For some context on the anger at FF's change, those of us who use Facebook on a regular basis were forced into a horrendous update in late 2021 which barely works, and Facebook continuously changes code, fixing what isn't broken. To find that the browser we've relied on for years did the same with no warning is very upsetting.

I'd like to get a message directly to Mozilla but "Submit Feedback" has been shut down for over a week.

I'd guess there's already a discussion regarding this, but I don't know where. Getting rid of the borders when there are multiple tabs open and turning things gray makes for a far worse browsing experience for me. Why would one string of undifferentiated text in a long line of tabs make things any easier? It does not.

I've found a helpful site that allows turning off the new theme, but a commenter advises that that option too will soon be disabled: https://www.askvg.com/tip-restore-old-classic-theme-and-ui-in-firefox-89-and-later-versions/

Is there an add-on that keeps the "classic" theme? I've googled how to provide feedback. One of those links is dead. What's the best way to make my thoughts known?

People love tech, but the older I get the more I see how it demonstrates a lack of ownership, that nothing is really yours on your devices, that what you're comfortable with is only one weekly update away.

I have the 'system' theme enabled, but it doesn't look the way it shows in the thumbnail and it makes my tabs really hard to visually distinguish! Grey on grey, as opposed to grey tabs and a dark blue toolbar, etc. Is anyone else having this issue? Or any tips on how to make the system theme look the way it's supposed to?

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?

Apparently Mozilla did an update and not it defaults to it's own printer dialog box. I hate it. There is a link to use the system print dialog box but it only works for that specific print job. I can't find a setting to force Firefox to always use the system printer dialog box. Anyone know how to fix this? It's enough to make me stop using the browser becasue thr Firefox dialog box sucks.

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?

When is Mozilla going to stop making FireFox even less ADA Acceptable? Thousands, if not millions, choose FF because it is accessible. With each update starting with Quantum, FF has become less accessible. I am currently trying to find an accessibility attorney to file a discrimination claim against FF/Mozilla. Stop making thing broken by 'fixing' them. Thin lines. Thin fonts. Icons without text. Shaded colors with no definition. A tab line on top with hazzy shadows behind it. YUCK

People with vision issues such as early cataracts cannot see this crap.

Mozilla F'd the Fox with this one.

Does there need to be an uprising at Mozilla in SF to get somebody's attention?

     SUB   : How do I move address bar to above tabs?
     To    : https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/new/desktop/form
     I have recently, past few days, been upgraded to
  Firefox Browser ver 89.0.
     It made changes I am not pleased with.
     It saved essentially none of my preferences, bookmarks,
  extensions, add-ons and etc.
     Pretty much had to start from scratch, reloading extensions,
  re-configuring extensions, has taken me hours.
     For some reason year upon year Firefox always messes with the
  address bar - tabs positions.
     I get it the way I like, then * BOOM * it gets reset.
     During this past "RESET", my preferences are not saved, they
  get blown away, year after year.
     I have to spend many, many hours attempting to get positions
  back to the way I want.
     Here is current (not-pleased-with) appearance :
     ============================================
  File  Edit  View  History  Bookmarks  Tools  Help
  Tab   Tab   Tab   Tab   Tab   Tab
  Address bar, where the web page url is displayed.



     Here is what I want. What keeps getting blown away :
     ==================================================
  File  Edit  View  History  Bookmarks  Tools  Help
  Address bar, where the web page url is displayed.
  Tab   Tab   Tab   Tab   Tab   Tab


     Notice the Address bar is above the Tabs.



     Now, in ver 89, after many hours of searching, it seems
  instead of some simple switch I can select or de-select via
  a check-box, I now need to become a programmer to make this
  change.
     I am not in any fashion or manner a programmer, nor do I want
  to become one.
     Cutting, pasting, editing, proofing code, alas, is not in
  my positronic pathway(s), it simply does not stick, error in
  processing and so on.
     Perhaps I have overlooked something in my searching to
  correct this positioning problem?
     Where is the check-box I can select or de-select to position
  the Address bar to my liking?
     Please and thank you.

Wanted to stop using the URL box for my SEARCHES and stick with the old SEARCH box because if my 'search' did not find what I was looking for, I could just change a word or two instead of typing the whole darn thing all over again. Your Forum advised to use the 'about:config' and the "Handoff" option. I may have changed "HANDOFF" default my mistake as could not find a list of default values. So, 1. What is the default value for HANDOFF? 2. Is there a LIST of the defaults, TRUE or FALSE in case I need to 'monkey' with 'about:config' in the future. I am not at all happy with some of the changes in rel 89.0 and 'messing' with the URL box, the SEARCH box, etc. 3. I tried to "go back" to previous a release and avoid/skip rel 89.0 but was forced to because of PROFILES, there locations, multiple ones and not knowing the 'most recent' to choose so was forced to use rel 89.0.

Thank You.
