I hate new firefox 89 looks. I can tolerate buttons. I can even tolerate ugly frameless tabs. But I will not tolerate bookmarks that are twice as fat as before. This is waste of space. Before I was able to see all my bookmarks from bookmark menu on screen. Now they are superfat and I have to scroll constantly in every sub-folder. Am I supposed to buy 4k screen now just because devs decided to make everything big like in touch-screen computers, even for mouse and keyboard users? Why is there no compact view anymore, only normal and superfat touch mode?

Is there any easy way, preference or something to restore old thin look? I googled topic and found some info about css styles but it includes too much of interfering with browser for me to do it. I want easy and permanent solution.

A few days ago I started to get random popup ads. All of a sudden an ad will op up that says something like "you are at rusk, get Macafee" or "get Norton" etc. The ads pop up in the center of my screen and are about 20% the size of my screen. I have to click the x to get them to close. Sometimes there is the "don`t show me this again" option at the bottom left but even when I click ok the ads continue to pop up.

I`ve tried a few things but can`t figure it out. I`m retired and not a geek so it can get pretty frustrating pretty quick. I`ve lost my patience to scour through help articles looking for the exact sentence I need.

A step by step tutorial would be nice, thank you. I am using a laptop with windows 8.1. I use Firefox.

Thanks David

Hi Guys,

Recently, I found that my Amazon affiliate adverts don't show up on the PC screen when using Firefox browser. There is no problem with Chrome, Safari or Firefox browsers on iPhone or iPad and no problems with Chrome browser on PC. Only Firefox browser on PC screen does not show the adverts. You can check it at https://drepeternews.com/support.php with different browsers on your PC. Also do check the source code page and you will see the advert links are there. Please let me know whether you can see the adverts on your PC Firefox as that may indicate whether it is an Amazon or a Firefox or my PC issue.

This issue is with links to images and with <iframes> and only occurs on my laptops running Windows 8.10 and Windows 10.00. I have enable 3rd party cookies

Any idea how to fix this. All help is very welcome.

Thanks, Peter

First, check "DeIete cookies and sitedata when Firefox is closed" from Privacy & Security in the settings.

After that, register the Google domain as an exception with "Manage Exceptions".

When I restart Firefox after logging in to Google once, the Google registration information disappears even though I registered the exception, and I have to log in again.

However, there are some sites where my login information will not disappear if I register as an exception.

How can I prevent my Google login information from disappearing even if I restart with the above settings?

Thank you.

Thanks to Proton expanding my Bookmarks Menu off the bottom of the screen, I was re-arranging my bookmarks folders. While wondering which of my folders I had to prune, I noticed another in-built redundancy. The entry "Manage Bookmarks Ctrl+Shift+O" appears twice, at the top and the bottom of the menu. Incidentally the bottom entry is misaligned (Firefox v89 on Windows).

Is there a particular reasons for this duplication? Can I remove either of these entries?

I saw this posted: (A) Right-click context menus, toolbar drop-down panels Starting in Firefox 89, these would flip to a dark background if the text on the inactive/background tabs was white or light. Firefox 96 has extended this adaptation to more parts of the browser. As far as I know, the only built-in way to avoid this is to change your toolbar theme to one with dark text on the inactive/background tabs. (The other way is the not-officially-supported userChrome.css file route.)

OK, I have been using a "not-officially-supported userChrome.css file" for quite sometime. Every 4th or 5th update (sic) screws it up. Apparently the latest (96.0.2) "looks" at my toolbars, makes an (erroneous) assumption and turns the main part of the home screen to black.

Not useful!

Suggestions to override Firefox's (less than helpful) assumption?

I was hoping to re-order the extension icons in my menu bar but it seems like that can't be done (akin to how open tabs can just be re-ordered), so I figured the best thing to do was to remove them and re-populate the menu bar with them in the desired order.

So I didn't uninstall them, but removed them from the menu bar, thinking I could then just put them back in the order I'd like, but I'm not seeing any way to re-insert their icons/shortcuts into the menu bar. Even once they're completely uninstalled and re-installed, they no longer seem to go into the menu bar as per usual, as if they've been earmarked as not belonging there regardless of a whole new re-install.

In brief: Is there any way to get the icon/shortcut for installed extensions back into the menu bar once they've been removed from there?

Thanks for your time.

I accidentally delted two folders from my Bookmarks file, and I can't find them. I've done everything the forums suggest at least twice, but they're still gone. At this point, I just need to know if they're gone forever or if there really is a way to get them back. I got them in a JSON file but it's all hireoglyphics and is no help.

Hi. Probably the biggest savings and loan institution in the UK is the Nationwide Building society. 16 million customers and holds £6 Billion in deposits. Their https certificate is issued by ESET. But the information box under the padlock says: 'Connection verified by a certificate issuer that is not recognised by Mozilla'. Why doesn't Mozilla recognised ESET? There are no issues when using MS Edge or Opera. https://www.nationwide.co.uk/

Is separated tab a bug or bad design? If the second, how can I revert to logical tab, that connected to its page? (And why the hell such ugly design decision passed?)

As I can see Themes show proper design with connected tabs: https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2021-06-02-08-11-27-3907e9.png

file:/Desktop/Removed%20Apps.html On Thursday, November 25, 2021 9:02 AM my PC was refreshed, so says the Firefox icon that popped up on my screen, and I presume by FireFox because they removed about 25 Apps that I typically use.

1-How do I re-install them? 2- and why would they be removed?

thanks for assistance and HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Some major probs just developed & now I have a totally different theme & a new version of Firefox 56.0 installed today... See image of installed programs

while I still have Firefox 95.0.2 from 12/20/2021 Firefox 54.0.01 from 8/19/2017 Firefox 61.0.01 from 7/30/2018 Over time newer versions accumulate & I've been told not to try to uninstall any of the older versions as it may crash ALL versions


it happened I think sometime after closing a normal session ... I was trying to clear out everything (junk & temp files etc.) as I normally do when using CCleaner then a message said Previous session not correctly closed a message said Firefox is still running do you want to force it to close" I said yes...then it said "its taking a long time to close... do you want to force it to close? I said yes... this happens occasionally & with EDGE as well...but usually there's no problems afterwards

btw: I'm using [Windows 8.1] & after several attempts at restarting Firefox...with different 'fixes' including using safemode... I did a computer restart ... & I did a regular profile backup last time 12/16/21 so as a last resort it may help...but I'm afraid to try to mess with it

anyway...then I was trying to look up solutions & for those of us who are not tech savvy..there's too much info & too may options & links & they lead to new articles like using about:config & browser.sessionstore.resume_from_crash & restoring sessions etc which just gets confusing I copied raw data to clipboard (which is a million pages) & then copied text to clipboard (not as bad...but it may help someone to help me....

hopefully someone can straighten this out for me... I'm worn out trying to figure it out myself thanks
