Must add option to disable the version 89 Proton UI in the VIEW menu - it is awful for Desktop + Mouse.

Hello, it is enough to search "version 89 visuals" in the help forum to find dozens of topic complaining how awful it looks, and the reduced functionality, content on screen and efficiency.

Luckily in one of the threads I found solution, and links to articles to fix most of the biggest issues:

As a temporary tactic to buy time, you can use a preference to revert the tab bar to its older appearance. This is just for Firefox 89, so you have a month to keep an eye out for the next workaround. To set that up: (1) In a new tab, type or paste about:config in the address bar and press Enter/Return. Click the button accepting the risk. (2) In the search box in the page, type or paste proton (or full browser.proton.enabled) (3) Double-click the preference to switch between true (new Proton style) and false (old Photon style) Since this was kept in just for testing, there might be some occasional glitches.

Here the options I changed - set false to all.

   browser.proton.contextmenus.enabled
   browser.proton.doorhangers.enabled
   browser.proton.enabled
   browser.proton.modals.enabled
   browser.proton.places-tooltip.enabled

+ even further reduction of the spaces -> browser.uidensity -> 1

I expect the new Proton view is inspired by touch screens - and is more optimized for tablets, giving more space around individual options, with extra space around them - to make sure you hit the right option with your finger. The downside is we get less visible options on the screen, as now each option takes more space - and it is absolutely awful and less visible for people using desktop mode, and using the more precise mouse and/or keyboard.

And here a list of the problems and annoyances in V89, and why they are a problem (and these are only the ones I noticed so far - attached is a screenshot collage of the issues.

1. Tabs which play audio no longer show that they play audio, unless I hover on top of them - which is a big problem if you have 20 tabs, and are searching which one auto-played some audio. In the previous version each tab playing audio had the audio icon on top of it. 2. My bookmarks take much more space on my screen, and while previously I organized them to fit perfectly to it, now are going outside of it, and I have to (unnecessarily) scroll to find more. 3. On YouTube There was a "delete video" button next to each video in my "watch later" list, and I was able to quickly delete the watched ones. Now I have to click on the 3 dots, and then on the trash bin button to delete. Much slower an annoying. Return to the old vision (sadly I cannot find a way to fix this yet)

This totally failed visualization must IMMEDIATELY be reversed, and you must add option in the VIEW menu - which switches between the old DESKTOP view (version 88 style), and new TABLET view (V89 style).

And it must not be allowed that you disable the browser.proton.enabled option in the next update, as this will force us to use only the new awful view, and give us 3 options:

1. Revert to 88. I have already backed up my profile, and downloaded it, in case V90 ruins the view permanently. This also opens us to security risks - so I can allow this for no more than 2-3 months, in hope you fix this fail. 2. Switch browser. Move to Vivaldi (which I use at work) or Brave, if you refuse to fix the fail. 3. Accept the awful view - not going to happen to me. I am using Mozilla since Netscape, but this fail is infuriating enough to make me switch if made permanent / even worse.

There are 2 problems. I don't know maybe they are related so I'm presenting them both. In the past both processes have worked with no problems. Windows 8.1, latest FireFox.

First: Bookmarks Backup Bookmarks tab Show all bookmarks Library opens Import and Backup Backup Bookmarks backup filename window opens pick destination folder - Desktop File name box: bookmarks-2021-06-10.json Save

Only there isn't a file saved on my Desktop. And it's not my computer messing up. I took a snapshot of the Library Bookmarks backup filename window and saved it to the desktop and it worked fine. I thought maybe if I used File Explorer it could find the file bookmarks-2021-06-10.json. It did, but it's still not on the Desktop where I could save it to an external hard drive for a Backup. See attached files.

Second: Bookmarks delete files/folders. I can move files and folders around, just deleting or removing them is a problem.

Method A. Bookmarks tab right click on link or folder I want to delete click Remove Bookmark nothing happens

or Method B. Bookmarks tab Show all Bookmarks Library window opens right click on file/folder want to delete Drop down menu, click Remove Bookmark

or Method C. Bookmarks tab Show all Bookmarks Library window opens choose file to delete Organize drop down menu, click Delete

This is where it gets confusing. For methods B and C sometimes it will delete, sometimes not. Thinking about it, mostly not. I dont know why the difference, I don't think I did anything different to delete one but not the other.

When I open the Bookmarks tab again, I can't tell if the list is the same or not. I don't think it's changed.

I worked really hard on this and then I messed up and lost everything I'd done. So, I started all over, but I don't know if this is as accurate as the first. I hope so.

Please, I'm an old lady simple answers in plain English are always appreciated.

If I am on Youtube and click the logo icon in the top left, or the Twitter back button, or click on a recommended video, my entire computer freezes for 8-15 seconds. I can't close apps, speak on communication apps like Discord, nor can I even close the tab. I've tried troubleshoot mode, verifying browser file integrity, turning hardware acceleration off, and using older versions of Firefox and the issue seems to persist no matter what I do, I happen to really like this browser and I really want to try and find a solution for these issues. I am always running the latest version of Firefox (90b5) and use windows 8.1. When recording some of my performance data it seems the issue uses all the power my CPU (i-5 6600k) is able to offer. I don't know how to fix this and would really appreciate any help, thank you in advance.

This problem appeared today! on PC, not all sites but in a couple of the sites, the text won't show or only some of the texts show.

I disabled my add-ons and cleared all the data(history, cache, and everything) even uninstalled and reinstalled the browser multiple times. I got a good antivirus too and there's no problem there. I can Ctrl+A the page and the text just isn't there(like the picture) or it's just a very small blank space(the links in the text are clickable in the small blank space) I tried the Hardware Acceleration method, the windows clear text method, and the text color method too. zooming in or out makes no difference. most sites have no problem or they're missing a very small amount of text on certain pages not the whole site. all of these sites work perfectly fine in chrome and opera.

is this a problem with a new update or something?


here's an image, all the places I highlighted with red, used to have texts!

I have been receiving from firefox to grant changes which had been coming up each time I've started to go through the internet connetion with firefox browser and which I am Not Happy with at all and therefore either you or hackers is doing this and I want it stopped now.

Or otherwise I've no choice to get another browser who will soon take over and i will issue a warning to the Google Website over this system I've received for the last few days and includes this morning as well.

I don't bloody need this stupid disgusting services and it's gonna bloody Stop Now.

Latest update blocking website like indeed from loading in information about employers and other sites too. Every update makes firefox worse. I started using other browsers because now some video's don't work either. Last thing I saw was a QUICK pop-up that said something about bits of trackers now being blocked. Well lots of things are being blocked and making browsing a miserable experience. I tried using the standards system in options. Can't find anything to make it work. Allow lots of things and nothing is working except to probably make the web browser more vulnerable to creeps. Please undo your current update and stop making so many updates. I've had three in the last two weeks and every time they screw up the browser more and more. Just stop it!

pretty much what the subject title says. this issue started about 3 or 4 weeks ago. I tried to launch firefox in Troubleshoot Mode and browsing around youtube still puts my SSD on 100% disk usage. the disk stays at 100% for a good minute then it calms down until I click on something on youtube. I'm just trying to play videogames while listening to music in the background. but when the new video loads up on my playlist, my disk usage goes to 100 and my game lags.

BUT when I browse around youtube in "Private Browsing" mode in firefox, my disk usage doesn't spike up to 100%. it just goes up to 8% and goes back down.

now I'm forced to use Google Chrome because my disk usage doesn't act up when I browse around youtube.. I miss firefox. :'(

Windows 8.1, newest Firefox

I have instructions I made the last time I backed up my bookmarks: Bookmarks button Show all bookmarks Import and backup Backup pick destination folder, in my case g drive, external hard drive File name box: bookmarks-2021-06-05.json OK But that didn't work. When I went to g/file where it should have been, it wasn't.

Went to the website, tried: Bookmarks button Show all bookmarks Import and backup Export bookmarks to .html pick destination folder, in my case g drive, external hard drive File name box: bookmarks.html OK That didn't work either. Still no file in g/file where it should have been.

Both times I went back: Bookmarks button Show all bookmarks Import and backup Import bookmarks from .html Opened the g/file where it should have been but it was empty.

Bookmarks button Show all bookmarks Import and backup Restore Opened a drop down list of previous saved file but not the current one.

I also tried going through each procedure and saving to the desktop, nothing. and still nothing.

I'm a senior at the edge of my computer ability, it takes a LOT for me to write this up just the way I did it. Please answer in simple English so I can understand.
