After the update to 89.0 the Shortcuts have taken an 'visual upgrade' that makes all the images chosen for them half as small as they need to be because they need to have a 'cute little grey border' almost as big as the image between it and the corners of the square.

I have twenty four shortcuts, that I differentiate at a glance through the images without having to stop to read the text on each one and this stupid change is really roasting my mellows, I have taken a look and haven't found any option to revert it to the previous look, anyone knows any way to do it or do I have to install the previous firefox update and stop updating and give up security updates to save myself from this stupid change?

In Ubuntu 18.04, I bring up a new page, click in the search bar in the middle of the page. Then when I start typing it jumps to the address bar although I have already placed and preferred the search bar to the right. No! NO! NO!

I use Duck Duck Go but Google does the same.

It is bad enough that the upgrade was automatically loaded but on top of that, changing preferences including dumping my home page. Change privacy settings without asking ( to a lower level on top of that ).

Really POOR form.

How can we remove the "New Tab" option when right clicking a tab? I find this feature absolutely useless as there's already and "+" tab button to create a new tab. I used to be able to reload tabs easily and quickly by Right-Click tab, Left-Click and the Reload option was selected. NOW, I have to move the mouse down to the Reload option, or press the "R" key on the keyboard. Simple things, yes, but something that is easily annoying if it's added when it's not needed and having to change the way we use the browser. What would of been nicer is that "Pinned" tabs would always be pinned, regardless if that window was the last to be closed or not.

I initially just wanted to get some ad-blocking program to keep down the volume of all the flashing ads showing up on webpages. I'm working with a new laptop computer, and my old laptop had been "tweaked" with some Mozilla extensions (?) to address this, and I wanted to get the same on my new laptop. So I opened the application menu - the 3 horizontal bar icon, top right. First thing at the top, it asks me to sign in. Honestly, I don't think I ever did this. So I used one of the many secondary email addresses I use for this type of thing, put in a password, and created an account. Up popped a screen saying, "This Firefox is connected". Then down below, it said, "Sign in to Firefox on another device to complete set-up". Ugh, really? Ok, fire up the old laptop and open up Firefox and sign in using the same email and password. Here's where I get lost - up pops a screen that says, "Connect another device". Then down below it says, "Open the code scanner on your Firefox app and show code when ready." And there's a "Show Code" button down below this. But I'm hesitant to press it, because I don't know what my code scanner is, I don't have a flatbed scanner (if that's what they're talking about), my phone is broken (part of the reason I have a new laptop today), and I don't see any Firefox apps called "code scanner", and nothing in the help community that I can find about code scanning. So what the hell? I can't be the only person who's gone down this rabbit hole...

I have encountered one web site that has several pages that display as graphics instead of text. I have visited this site before several months ago and the display was accurate then. The first image is how it looks now. The second image is how it looked several months ago. I am running Ubuntu 20.04.2 and Firefox 89.0.2. It's very strange that this is the only page that displays this way. I checked the page in Chromium and it displays correctly in that browser. Is this Firefox or quirky html?

In most standard Windows applications, the title bar and tab colour follows the default Windows settings, e.g. (in my case) the title bar and tab colour of active application windows is blue. This is true even in Thunderbird. Since FF 89, title bar and tabs are something between white and light gray, which is extremely user-un-friendly. FF developer team should return to the previous colour scheme. Yes, I know the circumstances of free software but this is NO excuse to alienate millions of users. Developers that change fully functionable software just, well, just to CHANGE it should consider that they are doing WRONG. Could anyone tell them? I am just user, not developer and I am not willing to learn developer tools like BugZilla just for this simple guiding principle.

Firefox updated to 89.0 today, and my newtabpage looks odd. The shortcuts now have really small previews, as shown in the attached image. How do I get them to be full size again (i.e. fill the box)? It was easier to tell them apart at a glance before the update, post update there's too much empty space. Is there something in about:config that controls this?

Thanks in advance!

New redesign update 89 somehow changed New Tab design. I don't know how it should look, but I think this is not what is intended. There is only one setting left - an amount of rows, which doesn't solve this alignment problem. Highlighting an item also looks misaligned.

Firefox was working well - and unfortunately I had forgotten to switch updates off. Now display settings on some pages are really grim from a "not great eyesight and now things are tinier" point of view.

I use Protopage (custom home page with news etc) and if you open a second tab, it allows you to have a selection of Icons each with a regularly used link. It still works, but after FF upgraded itself, the image in the tile has shrunk to a fraction of the original size - and is now surrounded by a thick border of white (with rounded edges of course).

Is there a "high vis" option which simply removes wasted white space which seems to have just been added at the expense of clarity?

Is there a way to either revert to a previous version OR to undo the visual messing about they have decided we all must want? If so, please let me know, as this "let's change something to make it harder to see", approach is a bit annoying.

Alas I cannot do a "before" image, but the "after" one is shown, complete with my efforts to explain what has changed.

Any guidance on either reversing the update or switching of the "shrink image and surround with large white border" geratfully received please.

Many thanks.

I keep the "Recommended by Pocket" section collapsed throughout most of the workday to prevent distractions when opening new tabs. Recently I've found the section can't be collapsed anymore. I know that I can disable Pocket on the homepage, but I don't want to do that. I still want it available for me to take breaks or when I'm finishing up with something. The collapse feature was ideal for me.

This may sound petty, but it's a real issue. I would rather stop using Pocket than let it distract me all day. I could write a bookmarklet to deal with it, but not everyone has that option.

Is there still any way to toggle this section? If not, why was this feature removed, and can this feature be brought back?

I REALLY dislike the new bookmark pull-down feature, which has larger fonts and far too much space between bookmarks. Now I have to scroll (for which I can't use the mouse) to get to the bottom of a long bookmark list. I prefer older versions.

How may I change the appearance of this feature?

When I go to do a search, as soon as I type in a letter, it jumps up to the address bar exposing past searches and all, and makes me do my search in the address bar, with my history exposed to everyone in the room which invades my privacy. How can I correct this to the way it used to be that when I searched it stayed in the search box unless I needed to used the url when I wanted to. Very surprised this started happening with the new upgrade. Can I go back to the last upgrade?

I'm an old Firefox user. Thank you for excellent Browser!

However, I've seen some bad things in Firefox 89, so I'll report it. After upgrading Firefox to 89, access from behind the proxy no longer reaches all addresses beyond the firewall. I noticed that the page opens correctly when I play around with the settings, which is related to the HTTPS-Only Mode and Automatic proxy configuration URL settings. I specify the address of "http:" in the Automatic proxy configuration URL. In that case, if HTTP-Only Mode is ON, it seems that the proxy configuration file cannot be read correctly. When I turned off HTTP-Only Mode and reloaded again, the page was displayed correctly. Alternatively, I can give up the specification in the Automatic proxy configuration URL and switch to the manual specification. That said, before 89, all settings were displayed correctly, so I think it was a trigger for the change in 89. Is there anything you can think of? Is such a phenomenon happening in other people?

Hello, until yesterday, I had the video downloader helper icon on the right hand side of my top list of sites near my Firefox account icon. Now in the 89.02 version, it's gone so I can't download directly movie trailers for example. How do I put that icon back on around there? Thanks Luc
