I liked Firefox the way it was, but just now today when asked if I wanted to select Themes I clicked no, and now my Grab Bar has changed from the System Color I like that matches all other applications' grab bars to White which blends into the rest of the page. That makes it difficult to find, and to control the window.

Is there a way to go back not knowing what else changed, or to put it another way: Is Firefox the browser that I want to use?

I don't like this new look at all. Two issues:

1) Before today, when I opened my bookmarks, I saw all of them. But now, since they're more spaced apart, I have to scroll to the bottom to get to those at the bottom.

2) If I scroll to the bottom of the bookmarks, and then close out the bookmarks, the next time I open the bookmarks, and I want to go into "Other Bookmarks" (at the top), I have to scroll up there to get to it!

Before, if I wanted "Other Bookmarks," all I did was hit the tab, and went right down to it.

Why do they do this? Don't they check this out before giving it to everyone? Without any kind of setting to go back to what it was, if you want to?

3) If I highlight text and right click to copy or cut, the window that comes up is so big! And I have to go up three or four inches to copy or cut. Before, copy and cut was barely an inch away.

Same thing with spelling mistakes. The correct spelling is a lot further away now.

Why do they do this? Don't they check this out before giving it to everyone? Without any kind of setting so you can go back to what it was, if you want to?

I just noticed that it depends where the cursor is when you highlight. So the cut/copy commands could be closer. But still, if it aint broke, don't fix it!

Firefox v.89.0 put extra space between each line in the menu display. This is fine for the regular menus, but NOT the bookmark menu. It no longer fits on 1 page and needs to scroll to find the bookmark I'm looking for. I HATE THAT!!!!! I never let any bookmark menu grow longer than a single page display just to avoid scrolling to find a bookmark.

With the new design, I'm going to need to reduce the number of items each menu by approximately 25% just to get each one back the original display length. Why the hell would they do that?

Not all "improvements" are improvements. If I wanted this style, I'd be using Microsoft Edge.

How do I get my menus back to the pre-v89.0 display?

Thanks to all, RMikeS

Can someone tell me how to turn off the Mozilla/Firefox ads? I am constantly bombarded with ads urging me to download Firefox, or to start syncing Firefox, when I am already doing both!

I am already bombarded with Microsoft's insistance on using Edge - which I won't - but I don't have a choice there as there is no option to disable or uninstall Edge from my Windows OS (or if there is, can someone share please?). The difference is, I am voluntarily using Firefox and these constant messages are seriously impeding my surfing and I am extremely tempted at this point to move to a new browser.

I, like everyone else, am suffering serious internet account fatigue and do not want yet another account just to accomplish a basic task, like contacting Mozilla. Since that appears to be the only option if I want to contact them directly, I am appealling to the community. Thank you thank you thank you for any help you can provide!

the new version 89 has changed the font of the menu bar, bookmarks and even the search engine bar. I've spent litterally hours trying to revert to the font I had in 88, with no luck. It looks awful, like I'm back in 1996, the used font can't even be identified by websites that recognizes fonts (what the font etc). Why is it so complicated to customize the UI ?

Hello, I first need to say that I'm not computer savvy at all. About an hour ago I lost all of my bookmarks when a new version of Firefox was installed. I was reading a comment that said if I could find and "Old Firefox Data" I might be able to restore them. I did look in a file that was marked that and at the top of the list was a list of my bookmarks. I'm not experienced enough to know how I can restore them into this new version of Firefox? If anyone can help explain in simple terms how I can do what I'm trying to do I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you

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.

Hello, I am on an Imac using Mac OS 10.13.6 High Sierra. I did the following in order.

1. Yesterday I downloaded FireFox 89.0. I'm having problems with my eyes so the tabs being the same color as the screen made it impossible for me to use. All history, tabs and bookmarks were available at this point.

2. This morning downloaded FireFox 88.0.1. When I opened it up I lost all my history, tabs and bookmarks.

3. I then opened up FF 89 again thinking that everything was updated to that version and I would reacquire my lost history etc ... I did not ... everything was missing.

4. Did the same for FF 88 and history et al were still missing.

5. I just checked my ~library/Application Support/ FireFox/Profiles and in addition to my original i86vhe6t.default and lzsayqt6.default-release there are 3 new profiles I'm assuming were a result of steps above.

I'd like to use FF 88 and recover all of my history, tabs and bookmarks as close to before I downloaded FF 89 as possible. Can you please help instruct me as to how to do that. thanks. ...

Later: After I originally wrote the above, I somehow managed to get back all of my settings but in FF89. I'd like to update my request to get information to use a previous version of FF with all of my settings. It seems when I launched FF88 and tried to change the profile to what I wanted, it wouldn't let me.

Every time I open a new window whether through ctrl + n or through the button in application menu, the menu opens up tiny. I've tried resizing it by dragging the edges of the window to the edge of my page, but that has several issues: 1 - It's temporary, and after working for a couple of minutes, it will revert itself without me closing Firefox 2 - I can only resize it horizontally for some reason 3 - Even if I drag it out to the issues, the window won't be maximized, just really big.

So far, I've tried setting privacy.resistFingerPrinting to true, but that didn't work.

I admit, I loathe the new Firefox look. With burning passion. I did get the tabs to look like they did previously, which helps tremendously. Unfortunately, this fix will likely be temporary.

However, my actual question is - in the landing/startup page where I can pin sites I often visit, how do I return the old nice and large icons that were actually unique at a very quick glance? The new ones are indistinct, and horribly spaced from each other. I use the normal browser, not on phone, i-anything, or any other mobile device. They don't need to be a mile apart from each other, and teeny tiny and similar on top of that.

Just... is there any option for me to swap them, even temporarily, back to how they were?
