I've just suddenly had this problem starting today: downloading files through the browser is now automatically sending them to my computer's Downloads folder, even though I have my download settings set to 'Always ask you where to save files'. I double-checked to see if my settings had been reset by the update (they had not), and I even unselected and reselected the option to see if that helped anything (it didn't).

So I've got Proton UI forced on me today in 92.0 update and accordingly had to spend my entire evening trying to repair all of the damage. So far I've managed to fix menu spacing and the way tabs look all while not breaking previous walls of text in userChrome.css meant to fix even older UI problems. Still one thing I failed to find any solutions to is the bookmark drop-down menus color issue. Those menus used to be gray, but now they are all bright white, which to me is super annoying. Any tips on how to fully recolor those?

On Firefox 90 on Ubuntu 20.04, when a site asks for camera and microphone permissions, it’s not possible to select any device anymore. It just shows the default camera and the default microphone.

Earlier Firefox releases used to show a selection list for the camera and also another one for the microphone.

My default camera is the one built into the laptop and I would like to use an external one that has adequate picture quality.

Can you please help selecting a camera with the new Firefox?

I have been using FVD Speed dial for several years. A couple weeks ago, I upgraded my EverHelper/Nimbus web account to paid so that I could sync and keep all my bookmarks since I lost them when my laptop crashed two weeks ago.

Today, I get a message from Firefox that FVD Speedial has been permanently disabled. I need my Speed dials back, and I need refund from somebody if I can't use the add-on anymore. It would be nice if Firefox would notify users ahead of time before unceremoniously blocking something as critical as this. I need to be able to access my speed dials so I can at least import them to some other app/add-on if necessary. I'd also like to know how to contact Nimbus if I need a refund.

Two Issues - checkboxes borked in settings, and i hate the new proton tabs and want to revert to the old tabs

Issue 1: When I open up the firefox settings, I cannot tell in the slightest what is and isn't checked off because nothing appears in the checkboxes. They're just empty squares regardless of whether something is checked off or not. I've attached a screenshot below.

Issue 2: I really, really hate the new proton tabs. I had them disabled by disabling proton, but I guess I forgot to disable auto-updates, because I just opened Firefox to find that they're back, much to my displeasure. It's difficult for me to distinguish tabs from each other at a glance now as they are all the same color with no borders *and* having 'autoplay disabled' and 'playing' and stuff like that in TINY all caps font below the tab label is NOT USEFUL. It is distracting to the eye, and I have to squint and lean closer to be able to read what the heck it's even saying. This is shitty for nearsighted people like me. Moreover, at a glance it is IMPOSSIBLE now to tell which tab sound is coming from. This is a huge step backwards in functionality and accessibility.

I wasn't using mozilla for aesthetics - I was using it because it functioned and was more stable / less of a memory hog in my experience than chrome, and I appreciated the ease and convenience of syncing across different computers as well as the built in password management. However, I question whether I can continue to use this browser if you're going to prioritize aesthetics over functionality and user preference.

Seriously - that the tabs DO NOT CONNECT to the page is itself distracting and weird, *but also* that the rest of the tabs blend together and have extra tiny unreadable text rather than the infinitely more distinguishable audio symbol that indicated which tabs had sound playing before is so terrible.

So.... tl;dr: HOW DO I GET OLD TABS BACK?

How can i customize Firefox with my own privacy-settings and save those settings for a new installation? Each time after installing Firefox i must go trough all the settings once again. To avoid this time consuming steps, is there a way to import all user-specific-settings for a new installation? The screenshot i attached below clearly shows IT IS POSSIBLE to pre-edit firefox settings for a new installation. Question remains, how can i do that?

For example i wish to always use those settings: (all set to false)

toolkit.telemetry.enabled privacy.resistFingerprinting geo.enable extensions.pocket.enabled media.peerconnection.enabled browser.urlbar.placeholderName > DuckDuckGo

-nevery remember history -dns over https -block tracking content in all windows (not only private) -block cross site and social media tracking -ublock origin extension active -delete cookies and site data when firefox is closed -enable https only mode in all windows

I found the following css for highlighting all context menu items for Firefox 91 ESR (not working on side-bar items from hamburger menu)

/* Highlight context menu items */

menu[_moz-menuactive="true"], menuitem[_moz-menuactive="true"] {

 background-color: #e8eefd !important;  /* blue 95% lighter */
 color: #3d3dff !important; /* blue 62% darker */
 /* https://www.w3schools.com/colors/colors_picker.asp */

}

How do I apply the same highlighting shown by the red arrow to the text where grey and heavy blue is used for highlighting? I find css very convoluted and it's hard for me to know what ids/parameters to use to get the desired effects. Any help appreciated.
