Hi, I have recently update my Win system with everything including Firefox. And now when I open new tab there is the same Firefox icon like always, but when I it is loading new page then its new X. When it is done with loading it changes to OK icon of the dedicated page. Is this X normal? Thank you

You get the hourglass instead of the moving dot if you have chosen to disable non-essential motion, either in the OS or in Firefox.

Firefox 63+ has support for "@media (prefers-reduced-motion)" to honor System Settings to minimize the amount of non-essential motion. You can create a new Number pref named ui.prefersReducedMotion on the about:config page to show (0) or block (1) some animations.

  • in Firefox 80+ this replaces the tab loading indicator with an hourglass
  • set the value to 1 if you want to block animations
    ui.prefersReducedMotion = 1
  • set its value to 0 if you want to see animations
    ui.prefersReducedMotion = 0
