Why was this changed? I always used view image, and if I needed it in a new tab or a new window I could use control + click or shift + click. This literally removes a feature for no reason. I don't want my images in a new tab all the time, sometimes I don't need the current tab. I'm just dumbfounded

I know how to bookmark a page- what I want to know is how to restore the bookmark star in the address bar (I accidentally removed it). I KNOW that you can bookmark a page by clicking the 3 dots at the end of the address bar and using the drop down menu, etc, or key commands.

BUT- I want to RESTORE the star that easily and quickly allowed you to bookmark a page. All other answers to this same question seem to only tell people alternate ways to bookmark a page. I don't need that. I need to know how to restore bookmark star to address bar. Thanks! my firefox ver is 84.0.1 64bit

What idiot thought it would be a great idea to replace "View Image" with "Open Image In New Tab"? Seriously? What the fracking hell. I used View Image all the time with a combination of Ctrl W to close tabs after saving images in bulk. Now you've deleted View Image to replace it with something dumber. Perhaps instead of replacing it, you should have altered its functionality to open a new tab if someone's holding Shift when they click it. Did you ever think of that? No, you were probably thinking about how to make Firefox worse. Ugh, why is firefox getting worse and worse with time? You guys keep taking away features and deliberately ruining the firefox experience, pretty soon its just gonna be another dumbed down clone of Chrome, the browser for the lower intellect. "Oh shame, too many buttons? Let us dumb it down for you. Configurations too complex? Here, we'll stupify it for you~ Its ok to be an ape level intelligence~"

You should be teaching people to be smarter, not bowing to their lower intellectual capabilities.

Now I've had to get a plugin to bring back the view image feature and this plugin actually does it better than you ever could have. Maybe its Mozilla thats getting dumber and not the rest of the world. Maybe their developers are losing intellect so they have to dumb down their own program so they can manage it. Who knows. I'm starting to suspect this.

Yea, I'm angry. You keep ruining Firefox.

When I right click on an image on the web I used to be able to click on "View Image Info" and it would give me information about the image, like image size and url of the image. After Firefox upgraded this is now gone. Can I get it back ? Is there a work around ? Not sure why that option would be removed.

I see that perhaps due to a 03/24/2021 update to 87.0 the option to right click and image and choose "View Image Info" is missing and I use that all the time when working on WWW sites.

I read "We've removed items from the Library menu that weren't used often..." and wonder where they got the idea this item was not used often.

Does that mean it was not used often by people at Firefox so they deemed it unnecessary?

Is there a way to manually make some adjustment to get that back in or roll back the update?

Firefox loads many sites after 5 minutes, other browsers do not

duplicate https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1333308

Good morning everyone, for at least 6 months now I'm having a lot of problems viewing some sites with Firefox. I have not been able to find common points between these sites, I only noticed that many are made in Wordpress.

Anyway when I load these sites Firefox takes 3 to 5 minutes to display them. Sometimes the screen is white, other times the wheel turns. Any other browser, of course, plays the same sites immediately.

To complicate things I have to add that the same sites sometimes start loading normally again, and then stop loading. But not all of them. I mean that one starts working again, another one continues not to work and vice versa.

I've done dozens of tests without being able to solve the problem in any way. I list them:

1. Deactivated all the extensions, even uninstalled, loaded Firefox in safe mode and nothing to do. 2. Uninstalled Firefox completely (cleaning %appdata%, windows registry and program folders) and reinstalled clean, no go. 3. Installed various versions of Firefox Developer, 32 bit, ESR, normal, even portable, always without extensions and with standard configuration and nothing to do. 4. Unplugged the network cable and connected in thetering / wifi with the 4G of the cell phone and nothing to do. 5. Tried a neighbor's wifi and nothing to do. 6. Wiped the pc, registry, uninstalled any software that wasn't absolutely necessary and nothing to do. 7. Started Windows in safe mode and nothing to do. 8. Uninstalled Eset Antivirus (I have a friend who has the same antivirus anyway and he can see any site perfectly with Firefox), deactivated Windows Defender as well and nothing to do. 9. I've followed the advice of dozens of articles modifying about:config in various ways (always making a backup first) and nothing to do. 10. Checked the pc with 4 different antivirus, antirootkit, antimalware and it was perfectly clean.

At this point I don't know what to do except give up using Firefox after a decade, because the problem seems to increase, in the sense that the sites that I can't load are more and more.

If someone can help me to avoid it I am very grateful...
