Need help on reducing bookmarks line spacing

Hi,

First of all, I would like to say that I am a Firefox user since 2007 (since we are in 2019, that's 12 years). I like it and I thank all the Firefox people that worked on it.

However, about two weeks ago I have updated my system from Debian 8 to Debian 10; and with it came a new version of Firefox.

And I don't like the way this new Firefox version looks: - it's ugly - it has out of proportion line spacing in the bookmarks - it has out of proportion line spacing in the Preferences menus - it is much less visual appealing than previous versions

Nevertheless, under the hood, I don't doubt that it is more advanced and better.

I just think it's a wrong move from the people leading Firefox at the moment. Maybe they believe they have to follow the (stupid) trend that many other software houses are following: - non intuitive icons - poor use of colors - exagerated simplifying in icons design - minimalistic screen organization - menus with less options, forcing the users to edit configuration files

All this leads to the user having to "try and guess", trying to discover how things work. 20 or 10 years ago, the softwares weren't so advanced, but they were more organized and with better menus. Today, if seems the need is to build something beautiful. But that beauty soon loses it charm after 5 minutes of interaction.

This is the sensation I get from interacting with Firefox nowadays. And it extends to the support forum, with lack of tast in the design, colors, etc. Too many steps back, in my opinion.

Using Firefox now is not as good an experience like it was some years ago. We need something that works, that has good menus, that we like to see. And not being forced to like something that others think it's the present trend. Firefox is used for the internet, so it needs to be a very good tool. Stop fooling around with it, please.

Also, when I try to solve this problem using themes, I'm stumped because I find some many themes. But the problem is that they are poor quality themes. Much quantity, but poor quality. And the search function, is horrible to say the least.

Besides, I don't understand that Firefox now calls themes to simply adding an image to the menu bar. Is that really a theme? Is this really a good service? I don't think so. I think this is dumb. And steers users away.

I don't care for flowers or manga characters in my menu bar. I just want well designed folder icons and line spacing that makes sense.

Why doesn't Firefox gives the user the choice of using the previous themes? Aren't we in 2019? Something like: Menu - Tools - Themes: - Firefox 55 theme - Firefox 56 theme - Firefox 57 theme [..] - Firefox xx theme

Can you imagine how many hours are you wasting from your millions of users that use Firefox to work and would benefit of something like this?

================================================

Having said this, now I present my goal with this post: I would like to know: - how can I reduce bookmarks line spacing?

I use Firefox to work everyday. I need it to be functional. I have thousands of bookmarks and I have organized them so they fit my screen.

Right now, I am losing much time scrolling up and down within my bookmark folders, because this new version of Firefox has a bigger line spacing than the version I used before.

Please see the attached picture.

Thank you.

I lost access to my two-factor authentication app and therefore could not get into my account. I have created a new account using a different email address but I would like to use the email address (which I still have access to) associated with that account. As long as the old account exists I cannot associate that email with my new account. I cannot find any way to contact Mozilla to ask them to delete the old account (and free up that email address). Will it just get deleted eventually if I don't log into it anymore? Is there someone I can contact to close that old account? Thanks

How can I stop the "Important News" page on first launch of a new version Firefox ESR? Yes I know it only once but I want to suppress that notice/check page from opening. I have gone from version 60.9.0 to 68.2.0 I figured out the majority of the settings I needed to make in about:config using a mozilla.cfg file. Operating System: Windows 10 Browser: Firefox EST 68.2.0

What I tried: in my mozilla.cfg I added:

              pref("browser.startup.homepage_override.mstone","ignore"); 

But that did not work. I still see the "Important News" and I see that setting in my about config. Trouble shooting this is taking time having to roll back my VM every time :(

I also set the browser to not search for updates with: lockPref("browser.search.update", false);

There are several pinned tabs when I open my Firefox.

The problem is when there is no Internet connection, these tabs are displayed as requiring network connection. However when the network is connected, these tabs are not automatically updated - they still displayed as requiring network connection. I have to refresh each one of them.

Is that my configuration has problem, or the automatically refresh tab function is missing?

Thanks wxie

Obviously, it's an old issue, but it even got worse. Mozilla removed the management of individual cookies, which makes it a nightmare to develop sites for me. Yet there was this "chrome://browser/content/preferences/cookies.xul" way to access all them cookies in firefox the old, good way. Well, actually this feature is also long gone from the main Firefox release, but it was still available in ESR version. Now, with the latest ESR version, it's gone too. It's impossible for me to understand why that happened, and frankly, i don't really care. There are no possible arguments which would make any sense. So, my question is whether it's coming back or not.

The new search bar is useless. I need the old one back, it was one of the best features of Firefox. Why is it ruined now?

I used to abuse the old search bar like there was no tomorrow. I loved it. I think it was the soul of Firefox: it made everything so cool and easy. But somebody killed it. Fixed it when there was nothing to fix.

Hope people who are working on new versions read this: people want the old one back. If you used the old search bar very often like I did, the new one behaves totally differently and thus makes using it a total pain. I have no understanding for this kind of change, especially when I cannot change it back anymore.

Can somebody please point me to a working solution of how to get the old search box back? Showoneoffbuttons tweak in about:config doesn´t work anymore, Classic theme restorer doesn´t work either. I am getting sick and tired and I need help.

Until some awesome person points me to a solution and I have showered them with praises and love (I am not being sarcastic, I am just stumped and any help is greatly appreciated), I downgrade Firefox into pre-Christ version and hope my virus program is up to the task.

Ever since it's been available I have used Google IFL as my search engine, so that when I type anything in the address bar, it just automatically goes to the most logical page. Suddenly this week, when I hit Enter, instead of going to the page, I get a Redirect Notice showing me what page it's about to take me to. I thought it was some Google thing but it doesn't happen on Chrome and from searching it seems it's a Firefox thing.

As an example, to get here, I typed mozilla support forum and I got the redirect notice shown in the attached screenshot.

Searching tells me that the setting for this is in about:config under accessibility.blockautorefresh - just set it to false. Great. Except that's the default setting and it's already set for false. Restarting Firefox does not change things.

I am using version 60.9.0esr (64-bit) and while it may have automatically downloaded an update earlier this week, it needs to be restarted to install it, and I did not restart Firefox between this not happening and this happening.

I should note that it never happens when clicking a link on any website. I have seen it rarely in the past when clicking an image on Google search results, but not very often - usually I am just taken to the page where the image lives. (This is why I thought it was a Google thing.) It only happens when I type into the address bar. I have even tried opening a new, blank tab and typing and it still gives the same redirect notice. When I click the Return to the previous page link, nothing happens.

So how can I actually turn this off? It's very annoying.

I am trying to install above mentioned Firefox version in a Terminal Server environment. How can I set a specific download folder/path as permanent location for downloading a file from the internet for all terminal user profiles. I would like to accomplish this with autoconfig.js or per user.js profile. Or is there a specific registry I can set in regedit for Firefox and where?

You help is much appreciated :) I am looking forward to hearing from you.

Should have been warned that Ver68 would screw up my life. After upgrading from Ver 65 to Ver 68, my profile is not being found by the new install. I do NOT desire "synching' with other devices, and it is a security risk to have to use an "account" to do this. Not to mention getting completely screwed if I cannot access the Web or lose the password.

What idiot thinks this stuff up? What committee of monkeys on keyboards allows it to be implemented?

Moving with my notebook computer from one WLAN to another (in another part of the building), either closed (thus in "sleep mode") or not closed, very often results in a loss of all connections. FF says that it cannot find the servers any more, while a direct "ping" or other softwares have no problem seeing and connecting to the servers.

I tried different proxy settings, but this did not change the situation. Normally the only "solution" is to close or "kill" the firefox, and after a new start also the FF finally "gets it" properly.

I want to set Firefox Portable as my default browser. It's been updated to the latest version.

I've tried the method described here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/make-firefox-your-default-browser

The problem is that Firefox isn't listed as an option on the drop down menu. Maybe that's because I'm using Portable, rather than the installed version.

Resetting to Microsoft recommended defaults doesn't help.

I exported my passwords from Chrome and used FFPass to import into Firefox.

The passwords are visible by inspecting:

Machine 1: Settings->Preferences->Privacy and Security->Saved Logins Machine 2: Settings->Logins and Passwords

But when I set-up my third machine and sync, everything gets installed correctly (bookmarks, tabs, preferences, etc) except logins. I don't see any logins; however, if I manually browse to a website, enter my login, Firefox will ask if I want to save. If I click yes, then that login is saved, but none of my imported logins are.

Can someone help? I have over 150+ logins... manually adding them one-by-one is not an option.

Machine 1: RHEL 7.7 / Firefox 60.8.0esr Machine 2: F29 / Firefox 68.0.2 Machine 3: F30 Firefox 68.0.2

Last week Adobe Flash stopped actuating/working with Firefox and there is no black box in the address bar or any place else that I see that asks me to activate it. I have it set as Always Activate on the Plug-Ins page but that isn't helping. I checked and have the most recent version. I had to go through several steps to activate it but it does work in Chrome. I run Win 7 and Firefox is my default browser. Please advise how I can get Flash to work again as it is hampering a lot of my activity on the web. Thank you.

Hi everybody,

hope you can help me understanding this.

Browser version: Firefox 60.9.0ESR, installed plugins: NoScript, Ublock Origin, HTTPS Everywhere

I'm using NoScript to block all Javascript by default and sometimes I want to verify that blocking works by looking at the console (F12) output.

Normally, when I visit a website and NoScript blocks all Javascript ressources, the console (F12) should show me error messages that scripts failed to load.

However, on some sites (e.g. stackoverflow.com), when I open the console it is completely empty (no output at all) - although Javascript apparently has been blocked (NoScript tells me that it has blocked all scripts and stackoverflow.com displays that "stackoverflow is best viewed with Javascript enabled").

Interestingly, when I leave the console open and refresh that page, all the expected error messages about failed scripts are suddenly displayed in the console.

So my questions are: 1) what could be the reason that the expected error messages are only displayed when I refresh the page? 2) could this mean that at the time the console is empty, some scripts are executed? Although NoScript tells me it has blocked all of them and the main site apparently was loaded without Javascript?

Your help would be appreciated. Thanks

Hello all. I work at a university in IT Support. I am trying to assist a customer with her issue of not being able to open PDFs in the online program that she needs in order to complete the submission. She was able to do this previously in Firefox but now cannot (she cannot do this in any browsers now). She repeatedly gets the message: "The document you are trying to load requires Adobe Reader 8 or higher. You may not have the Adobe Reader installed or your viewing environment may not be properly configured to use Adobe Reader. For information on how to install Adobe Reader and configure your viewing environment please see http://www.adobe.com/go/pdf_forms_configure." Is there anyone who knows about this problem who has any suggestions? She has the latest upgraded version of Adobe Pro 2017 so she is fine there. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
