Today, I posted an idea in "Ideas" section of Connect Mozilla, but it seems to be deleted without any notice. Why?

Under Firefox "Help" menu I saw that there is a link for "Share ideas and feedback". I posted today an idea to Mozilla Connect "Ideas' section to improve Firefox, but it seems to be deleted. My account page shows I posted "1 post", but no post is visible. Is it possible that my post is deleted by admins for some reason? In that case, shouldn't I receive a message for why it is deleted? Below is my post and related image as attachment.

Title: “Active tab” marker design needs to be changed to make it more functional

Post content: Firefox is my favorite browser. I use several other browsers during my work, as well and the older design of Firefox tab markers (indicating which tab I am on) was much better. Before Firefox ver. 89, the active tab design was more functional as it was immediately clear which tab is the “active tab”. I prepared a visual comparison of how different browsers indicate the active tab. (attached image). Also inserted how it was before Firefox Ver 89. I hope the designers will take this into consideration in the future releases.

Thank you very much for this suggestion! I changed the tab colors and remove the active tab "highlighting" to better blend the active tab marker with its page. It looks much better now. Pity that an add-on needs to be installed to correct a "design flaw" (my opinion) that's introduced 15 Firefox versions ago. I'd be surprised if I am the only one who has/had this issue. We must be in minority, hence not hitting the critical mass of complaint levels to redesign. "Firefox color" is now the first and the only add-on I have on my browser-rich PC. Installing add-ons can be a security risk, but luckily this extension is released by Mozilla Firefox. I assume it should be safe.

"Did this reply solve your problem?" It was an extremely helpful reply (thanks again), but I still don't know why my "idea" post has been removed. It is important for me to know this so that I pay attention to that while posting my future “ideas”. If posts can be removed just like *snaps fingers*, then it will discourage me to post any idea in the future. Is it because I mentioned the names of other browsers in my image attachment? (as if I am advertising them?) Was it too cynical? Has it been posted by others several times already? Do I need to wait 24 hours after sending an idea? I NEED ANSWERS! (<- joke) Please don't delete my post! (<- cynicism)

This will be something that you will need to raise on the Mozilla Connect forum for that team to look into for you.

Hi Paul, Thanks for your reply. I first checked that before posting here, but Mozilla Connect "Support" link takes me to their brief FAQ list. https://connect.mozilla.org/t5/help/faqpage I appreciate a lot if you (or anybody else) can suggest a way to contact "Mozilla Connect" moderators.
