With the upgrade to FF 89, the font used to display text on the browser itself (not the webpages it displays) has changed to be a thinner and possibly smaller font. My eyes do not like this!

I need to be able to either make it bold, or make it larger, or possibly both. I have tried changing the font in the settings page, but that seems to only apply to webpages, which is not what i need.

I'm running win 10 on a Toshiba Satellite laptop and Firefox v.89.

Thank you for any suggestions.

I need to copy browsing history and bookmarks from one laptop with FF v.60 to another laptop with FF v.52.

I know there are different ways of doing this, but in my case I don't have use of the source laptop. BUT, I do have the full profile saved in both laptops. I also had saved a json bookmarks copy, but it's 5 days old. No huge deal but I had some major restructuring of my bookmarks yesterday.

There's also sync, but I tried to just sync history and it does nothing. Plus I'm not sure if it's going to sync to "last updated" which is actually the other (destination) laptop with FF v52.

In my profile I see bookmarks clearly, but no history. They are both in places.sqlite? Should I just copy this? What else would be copied?

By the way, in bookmarkbackups folder, I see the last jsonlz4 file is from June 9 12:10 am, not June 10 12:10 am as it should have been perhaps. Does this jsonlz4 file work with the restore command of "import and backup"?

Thank you!

I don't use Chrome for the same reason, and now it's happened to FF. I'm on a desktop/monitor WIN 10. With the last FF upgrade to 89.0 text has faded on some web pages. (Almost all of Ebay) When I tried to fix this on Chrome years ago, I thought I was missing a system font. That was not the case and everything I attempted, failed. Now, last week, FF upgraded and here I am again. Please help if you can. Thank you.

Hi,

I am currently running FF 89 (64bit). I noticed just after that update the bookmarks had changed. I have a lot of folders and had a Chrome.sss file to change the empty outline to the more traditional yellow icon. I know there were other things in that sss file that I had added to adjust the basic FF displays. However, I have searched my computer and cannot find the Chrome.sss file.

Is there any way to find this file instead of having to regenerate it and relearn the changes I had made?

Why does FF not leave the Chrome folder and sss file instead of seemingly delete them?

I also do not like the black background and white text that pops up when I right click a bookmark. That combination is very hard on my eyes. Is there an easy way to get black type on a white background or maybe a light grey background?

Thanks in advance for your help!

For starters, I want to type my search in the larger, lower search bar, but more often than not, what I'm typing shows up in the smaller search bar that is higher up on the page and not on the bar where I'm typing. That is annoying.

But even more annoying: whenever I start to type what I want to look for, a drop-down menu appears with lots of suggestions for me, and those suggestions hide the lower search bar. As soon as I type one letter, the drop-down menu appears with lots of guesses about what I want. I don't want suggestions cluttering up my page ~~ I just want to type without all of that clutter. I'd leave an added image, but it won't let me take a screen shot of what I'm talking about.

Is there any way for me to disable the drop-down menu with suggestions? I HATE IT! Just let me type what I want to find!

Firefox allows the show password option in the firefox password manager This is an extremely dangerous situation as it gives someone access to all your passwords if they have your windows login and your Firefox password is saved in Windows.

This means that if you save your Firefox password to Windows, and someone gets access to your PC, they can get a copy and read of all of your account names and account passwords in the Firefox password manager.

Access opporrunities for example are a technical support person working on your windows account.

A security update should change this to encrypt stired passwords and remove the show password option in the Firefox Password Manager.

Dear Mozilla Community,

I would like to know when Firefox will be dropping Windows 7 support? I readed on some websites that Google Chrome will be dropped support for Windows 7 in 15 January 2022 year so I would like to know if there are any plans by Mozilla Developers to drop support for Windows 7?

I don't have computers with Windows 7 but my friends asked me about this because they know that I am active community member of Mozilla but I can't answer because I don't know so this is why I asked you today about this.

Long time User of Firefox. Everyone day, one of the first sites I read is WSJ.com. Recently (now running 89.0 Firefox) the WSJ.com website has been totally jumbled. I cross checked it on Chrome, where it was working fine. I have reported this to WSJ.com, and now also to Firefox. Is there a new setting requirement in Firefox 89.0 for that page? This is the only regular site I visit where this is occurring.

Any insights?

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.

The bookmarks are now all spaced out so they can't be read and they take up 2 to 3 times more space. This is AWFUL. The tabs are now "floating around" so they don't look like tabs and also CAN'T BE READ. Isn't there anyone there that knows how to do graphics? Both of these things were just fine and DID NOT need to be changed. And now they're awful and unusable.

How do I change them back?

Dear Firefox community, I do not know why you are not solving your browser-short time memory loss problem! When I download a video / file, the internet is disconnected in the middle, and it takes a while to connect, then the download starts again from 0%! It wastes both my time and the internet. If the power connection is disconnected while downloading again - I don't get any backup of that file when I connect to the internet after the power connection is restored ...! However, other browsers have this advantage. I like Firefox a lot, but this short time memory loss system bothers me a lot. I hope to fix this issue in the next update.
