v89 significantly changed the "Top Sites" default icons. Is there an about:config setting that can be changed to revert to the v88 icons? (Setting browser.proton.enabled to FALSE had no effect on the default Top Sites Icons.)

BTW, I do not find the new default Top Sites Icons to be an improvement. On the contrary, the bright colors and large letter outlines are overbearing and distracting. I would prefer no icons to the v89 icons. The v88 (and prior) icons were okay. [In general, I found the v89 interface update a step backward from v88.]

Thank you for any assistance in finding a solution.

Whenever I try to delete my Firefox Account, it says that my password is incorrect. I've changed my password, copy-pasted it from the password change page and it still says my password is incorrect. How can I fix this? The password works fine for other Firefox things, just not the account deletion page.

Don't know where to write it, but I hope some developers of Firefox will read it...

After years of UI / UX Design studies Firefox recently "updated" the bookmarks menu ignoring everything ever established in UI / UX design rules!

1. When you right click on a bookmark you suddenly find the bookmark options split into two segments? Editing bookmarks or creating new one should be in one segment as everything is related to bookmarks.

2. Why is it suddenly called "entfernen" in Germany, as everywhere, in every program, the function is called "löschen"? Such things cause all this annoying obstacles which no one needs when working with a program. Who ever thought this might be a great intervention should take the step back.

Same with folders. 1. When you right click on a bookmark folder you suddenly find the bookmark folder options split into two segments, too? Editing bookmarks or creating new one should be in one segment as everything is related to bookmarks.

2. And again, why is it suddenly called "entfernen" in Germany, as everywhere, in every program, the function is called "löschen"?

An issue I am running into with the latest Firefox is that when connected to an external display (4K) the screen starts flickering really bad when scrolling in Firefox for MacOS.

Safari does not, other programs do not, only Firefox!

Anyone having similar issues or knowing a solution? It is really annoying! Thanks in advance!

Lately (as of which version, I'm not sure), I've been noticing that if I enter a URL in the address bar of a tab that already has a page open, instead of going to the new URL I entered, Firefox will refresh the current page instead. This happens A LOT and is pretty annoying. Wondering if this happens to anyone else.

Just having upgraded to V89.0.1, I won't focus on how more difficult to see the separation of tabs, but instead: All my folders in bookmarks have turned clear and appear to be the basic default look. Specific sites under each folder, as well as the individual sites not in folders, have kept their (what used to be called) Favicons.

I see no customizing option for this. Can I at least give the top level folder a color, WITHOUT FANCY PROGRAMMING OR EDITING OF DEEP CONFIGURATION FILES, just by menu clicking?

I'll conclude by not asking why the Powers thought to remove such things. To me it makes it HARDER to find my way around Firefox and displayed page.

Hi,

I noticed a problem on my MacBook Pro when Firefox is running. When I have 4 tabs opened on a precise streaming website, with the sound disabled on these 4 tabs, and I run other tab (like youtube) or other app (VLC, Music,...) with the sound enabled on it, I can ear some "pop" or "crackle" in the speakers.

I performed the same test with Safari and the problem don't appear.

Motherbaord, and speakers have been replace on my laptop by AppleCare. I think it's a software issue (maybe due to Firefox, maybe to macOs). I contacted Apple to explain my problem and ask them try to reproduce the issue, but they won't do until Mozilla confirm that the issue is not due to Firefox...

I did't find how to contact Firefox support Team, so I posted here...

Regards, Joe

Beginning in the last month I receive the message below when attempting to connect to a site. Different sites with different server information. However the content for the site is shown. Why is this suddenly happening? The message copied below is an example.

Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site.

We can’t connect to the server at bfea48bd16cfe97e11fb3f6ce1174c3d.safeframe.googlesyndication.com.

If that address is correct, here are three other things you can try:

Fonts won't be correctly recognized by Firefox and text is then displayed garbled (see attached example). I use Firefox 89.0.1 (64-bit) on a MacBook Pro.

I've tried the following to fix this: I've cleaned out my cache and cookies. In Preferences/Languages/Fonts I've changed the san-serif type to Arial (helped some but not all); I've unchecked and then checked again "Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of your selection above." I've started looking at the html code to figure out the font settings but I really just need to have a functioning brower.

Any thoughts? I'd be very grateful. It's impacting my work, and I'm having to use other browers, which function without issues - but I like Firefox! This is a bummer. Thanks!

I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the browser but it has not made a difference.

I'm running the latest version of the browser and the OS is Big Sur.

With today's Firefox update, the edges of the tabs, that allow me to visually distinguish between the multiple tabs that I always have open, disappeared. Now, it is only the font/text that is visible when looking at my browser's multiple tabs. The edges have disappeared, only showing up as a faint shadow when I hover the pointer over a tab. And depending on the name listed on the tab, this makes it very difficult to distinguish one tab from another. This change to the way that Firefox looks is making it difficult for me to maneuver between tabs, and get my work done.

I tried changing colours, as well as the different themes, but in all cases, the edges remain invisible. Attached is a screen image of the different colour/themes, showing that in every case, the edges of the tabs remain invisible.

Is there a way to bring the edges back into view? Thank you in advance for your assistance.
