The new version, 89.0.1, has removed the contrast and separation of the tabs, making it hard to read now. Why?

I don't mean to be rude, but if you could get the decision-makers who authorize drastic changes to the appearance of the browser when a new release comes out to just stop "fixing" things that aren't broken, that would certainly satisfy me. I'm not picky about color schemes and "themes", but now the browser is difficult to read, and it wasn't before. I need to know how to restore the appearance of my browser to be the same as in the previous version, or I'll finally have to quit Firefox after all these years and switch to a different one. I don't want to have to do that, but I don't think I can manage to deal with this new hard-to-read low-contrast version. I'm sure someone thought this design looked "cool", and was therefore an improvement. I don't want to stifle anyone's creativity, but the browser I use has to be easier to read. Maybe the next release will offer a choice between the "look and feel" of the previous version versus this one. Thanks for considering my problem (and it is a problem for me), and I'll keep my fingers crossed.

FF auto-updated to 89.0.1, now a site won't work, would like to RESTORE deleted/cleared COOKIES (?!?!) for that site to see if it will help cuz deleted the cookie for it made things worse! Doesn't work under Private FF session either!!

Specifics: I am the Webmaster of (we use WIX to create/manage it) 12cdrc.org and it is working fine using Edge, Chrome, Brave, but no longer works correctly (since 89.0.1, I think happened late last night early this morning on my system) update. Most of the page loads, but the Calendar and display tweets sub-windows will not load! It will be obvious to all where they should be displaying but are not!

So, I tried removing 12cdrc.org cookies. Things got worse! Now the Login won't work either, where I was logged in as my user for the site prior to that.

I tried a Private window/session, and the Login function does work, the Calendar does show, but the tweets sub-section/window still does not display/function.

Background: This is not the first website to malfunction using Firefox... Previous version updates broke the rescuemichigan.com website (none of the pull-down menu functions work, but work fine on/with Brave, Chrome, Edge)! Also mewe.com acts up using FF at times, but a clear of the mewe.com related cookies and relogin at mewe via FF clears up the issues of things not wanting to display correctly or fully on mewe using FF - which is why I thought clearing 12cdrc.org cookies would help in this case (but did not, again, made the malfunctioning worse)!

This makes little sense. I even tried doing D/L of full 89.0.1 install, didn't help.

I'd like to try and RESTORE COOKIES (last thing I want to do is clear all data/cookies for FF) for 12cdrc.org from manual offload of all my userid appdata folder/sub-folders to an external drive (or perhaps appdata backup to Norton cloud backup done a few weeks ago)! But I do not know where to look. Was about to go to my external drive and do complete file search of "12cdrc*.*" to see what would return when I thought I could search Mozilla/FF Help on "Restore Cookies" but only very old question for very old version of FF showed up and it said "IF STILL NEED HELP ASK NEW QUESTION" so here I am doing so!!!

Again, all sites (12CDRC.org, MeWe.com, and RescueMichigan.com) ALL WORK 100% error/issues free using Brave, Chrome, Edge, so this is FIREFOX SPECIFIC and all these issues have started under/after recent FF updates and/or gotten worse, not fixed/better, under updates/upgrades!!!!

Appreciate any Help... 1) like I said, where the Cookies are hidden that I might then recover them from previous save 2) other suggestions?!?!?!

I have had PCs for years and have used Firefox. My PC died and will not boot. I have an image of my C:\ drive on a Passport disk. But the Mac will not read it. I installed Firefox on my new Mac and signed in had all of my bookmarks and passwords. Then there was a Firefox icon on the bottom strip and one on my screen. In the interim, I opened some new accounts and used a bunch of passwords. At the end of the day, I dragged the icon on the screen down to the row of icons at the lower screen. That wiped out my Firefox. I downloaded Firefox again and put in what I thought was the password and it said I had multiple accounts and if I changed the password it would erase all of my data. I need to find out how to get the right password so I preserve my data. The email account I used as the ID is coolsgirl@msn.com. I am 72 and I don't want to make a mistake that is irreversible. My sister said Macs were easier but I should have gotten a new PC. Live and learn. I don't know my Firefox email. Thank you, Phyllis

I think that such a project would have multiple purposes: First off, you would take fewer things from Gecko, making for a more compact code base (I mean, does everyone want Video-in-Video and Pocket? Couldn't you integrate the most popular add-ons and remove add-on support? I like 'em, but don't they add bloat?). That could make the entry into development easier. Second off, it'd show people that Blink isn't the only engine you can base a browser off of. And if the code base is truly the same (includes Quantum), and more of a subset, it's probably easier to maintain and get security updates to than, for instance, Pale Moon. As fork developers are only able to backport security patches when Mozilla releases them, that problem would be greatly reduced if the project was made within Mozilla. Third off, having a lightweight browser might enable more people to use Mozilla products, as they could run the browser on weaker hardware. If the developers are able to focus on making that browser lightweight, it wouldn't be crucial for Firefox Standard to run on everything, and you'd still be able to reach more people.

scrolls on this computer: desktop Windows 10 Pro v 20H2 Firefox v 89.0.1

doesn't scroll on this computer: laptop Windows 10 Home v 20H2 Firefox v 89.0.1


What I've tried on the laptop so far (none of these solved the problem):

tried in a private browsing window

tried in Troubleshoot Mode

uninstalled Firefox deleted default profile folder (that was the only profile) deleted profiles.ini reinstalled Firefox

Hello, Recently I tried using my email to create an account for a website. Firefox prompted me to save the password, to wich I accepted but it didn't save my ID. The next day I couldn't login into the same website, I've checked my credentials and they were correct. So what I'm asking is, Is there any way I could see wich ID's I've used to try and login into a specific website?

PS: I know this could be a website side error, but I'm trying to check everything. PPS: I apologize if my writing is confusing, english is not my native language.

Is there a way at all to recover lost Sync data. I was unaware that resetting my password completely deletes my log and all information and there was no indication or opt out option for that. I am using about Sync and I see when it was deleted but I am hoping there is some way to retrieve the information. It is a few months worth of it that I can not afford to lose. Thank you.

Hi, Firefox update is so Microsoft-ish. Not only that it is forced on you (without any info) BUT it also deletes the last tab you tried to open. Why the last tab (the one in which restart button is open) is lost? WHY? it is a F*ck You message to all users.

case: -you click on link and instead of wished tab the restart tab is open -you restart the browser -there is no info of last tab tried to open

no way that this must work like this!!! if you after restart can reopen all other tabs you can reopen the tab that was used to force restart. thnx dj

I used to be able to use Google Maps without problem on Firefox.

I'm not sure exactly when the problem arose, but I'm positive it is broken on my Firefox 89.0, and now on Firefox 89.0.1 - The problem is as follows:

When I load the https://www.google.fr/maps/ site, I see the map load, I see the towns, the roads, the "pins" (shops, points of interest, etc.); I have the names displayed, it looks fine. Then, once it's done loading, the map background disappears, and I'm left with only the names and the pins. Enclosed is a picture of the area around Paris, France, after it "went dark".

If I drag and drop the map, or zoom in or out, the map reappears and is perfectly readable. But as soon as I stop moving it, the map tiles disappear again, and I'm stuck with only the names and pins again.


I've checked under other browsers (Edge, for instance), and the problem seems to occur only on Firefox. I've removed ALL my google-related cookies (because of old answers to problems with Google Maps, saying to try that), and it didn't help. I tried reloading the page, emptying the cache, didn't work either.

Am I the only one to experience this ? Any ideas as to why it happens, or how to correct it ?

Previously, when the above happens, I get a yellow pop up message . After the latest update this is no longer available. Please reintroduce this, as I sometimes fail to see the pop up window which allows me to stop it. If I fail to stop it in time, firefox freezes and I have to reboot every time. This time make it a red window, so that the warning is immediately noticeable. ''''Note': I am still using Windows 7.

The browser deletes empty paragraphs when inserting text from the clipboard to the visual Web editor. How to make the browser do not remove empty paragraphs when inserting text from the clipboard to the visual Web editor? With other browsers available from me, there is no such problem.

For example, the text copies in Word: Blah blah blah

Blah blah blah ______________________________________________________________ And in the browser is inserted without an empty paragraph: Blah blah blah Blah blah blah
