Hi,

Just got version 89.0 installed. And I totally don't like what happened to the tabs. They are visually disconnected from the page they belong to and transformed to some kind of buttons (at least when selected. When not slected only the caption is visible) . I cannot even imagine why such a useless change is done, but in terms of UI design this is not a good step. It makes things less clear.

I would like to have to old tabs back, but cannot find a theme which can do this.

Is there a setting with which I can set to old tabstyle back?

Thnx

Sometimes my computer crashes after starting Firefox for the first time each day. Once the restart completes I don't have problems for the rest of the day.

In Facebook I find I suddenly can't attach image or links to a post. I remove them and the post button becomes active again but even if I try to edit the post after with an attachment the button is blue but is not clickable. When I go to another browser everything works just fine.

One dashboard I use for my business now loads without any content on the page but it loads perfectly fine in another browser. All of these problems started with this newer version of Firefox.

Is there some setting I need to adjust, should I roll back or is it time to move on?

Since the download of 89.01, my drop down menus on some features will not stay visible. They flicker on, and off.... gone. This happens on my search engine toolbar, plus on other sites that have a drop down menu fields for saved information. It works for for the main FF menu's drop down options across the top (i.e. File, Edit, View, History< bookmarks, Tools, Help).

I can occasionally cheat it by holding the left mouse button down and dragging it to where the drop down menu flickered for a brief nanosecond, but it often takes 3-4 times to get it to stay visible and select an option.

Additionally it seems to affect a few other features, such as when I hit the hold down the CTRL button, the window zooms/resizes larger. huh? That's a real pain in the butt when using copy/paste short cuts.

I've tried refreshing FF, checked settings. I have no add ons. Standard theme. Note: Windows 10, Version 10.0.19041 Building 19041, FF version 89.01 64bit, HP Desktop computer, Model 510-p020.

FF 88 is still on my HP laptop, and I don't have an issue with that computer or FF version. You won't find me updating that until this is sorted out. This all showed up with FF 89. At this point I'm wanting to find FF 88 to reinstall, but can't find a download for that except for 3rd party sites, and I'm not going there.

Anyone else experiencing this? And is there a solution I'm missing, or a fix on the horizon? Thank you so much for your assistance.

Today I tried to log in to my HSBC account from Firefox 89.0.1, which I have been doing from Firefox for several years. The HSBC home page displays as normal, but when I press the Log on button I get the following message


Bad Request

I have rung HSBC, who say there is no problem at their end and I should try another browser, and the website works perfectly on Google Chrome. Why should this have happened, what changes have Mozilla made to the browser to cause this problem?

I already have to use Chrome to access my M&S Money account due to incompatibility between that website and Firefox. Should I change my default browser to avoid future problems?

Firefox 89 has changed notification of FF updates so that it's no longer easily possible to find out what's changed in the update. Which means it's more difficult to find out what changes have been made and if it's worth the bother of updating. After an update is downloaded there's yet another popup re: restarting. How about going back to--notifying people of an update and no longer nagging at them until they do and then nagging people to restart their machines? Why become more & more like the corporate nannies, microsoft & google?

I also don't like that FF, which supposedly values user privacy, requires people to set up either a crowdcity account or use a pre-existing account (such as Facebook, twitter, et al) to provide feedback re: firefox. Since when does social media maintain privacy? And the more accounts you have to set up, the more likely that one of them will get hacked. I don't rarely use social media (may look at twitter accounts for traffic information, etc., but don't have a twitter account, etc) and don't have a FB account. I am tired of being required to set up yet another account--particularly since FF provides no information re: Crowdcity's privacy polices and if FF has actually verified any claims that Crowdcity makes regarding

Seems like FF doesn't want feedback from all users only some of them.

Is it possible to return to say FF version 80?

Firefox hogging hard drive space with temp files (cubeb-shm...input/output)

I've discovered that in my Users/UserName/AppData/Local/Temp folder, there are thousands of files eating up space with name "cubeb-shm-#####-#####-input" and "cubeb-shm-#####-#####-output", where "#####-#####" is a 10 digit number seperated by a hyphen.

I did a basic google search for these filenames and found several articles that talk about how firefox uses these, and normally creates and then deletes them, so there should only ever be one of each (input/output) file at a time. For some reason, I have thousands of these files, and they are eating up hundreds of Gb's of space on my hard drive. I only discovered this because my computer notified me I was running out of space. I manually deleted them, but I don't want to have to do this regularly, since it seems it's not expected behavior for Firefox.

I'm running the 64 bit version of Firefox 85.0.2, and there are no new updates available at the time of this writing. I'm really hoping someone can help me figure out how to get Firefox to appropriately manage these files. Help me Firefox community! You're my only hope!

Hello all. I seem to have a new version of Firefox installed on my computer, or an update has made it a newer version (89) and now it does not save my passwords. When I close down the laptop and re start it the next time I want to use it and go to firefox, none of the paswords I had thought I'd saved previously are there. This is very frustrating as I have a lot of places I visit which I had, in previous times using an earlier version of firefox, saved passwords which populated the correct places. I am no techie so really don't understand what has happened. Every time I want to get onto even my email, I have to leaf through my black book to find the necessary password and do it all manually.

Please can anyone help?

Hello,

So my problem is as follows:

When I attempt to click on a drop down menu on a website, the menu appears and then disappears before I click on an option. I can cycle through the menu choices, but can't click on one to select anything.

The other issue is on websites, specifically Instagram it will scroll through photos without clicking on the button to go to the next photo.

I believe it is a preference issue I have checked and just don't know what in the world it can be. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
