In the latest release the gap between Bookmarks on the Bookmark toolbar folders is huge. Why was this changed and how to change it back? Note this isn't happening from the menu, only from the Bookmarks toolbar folders. It is extremely ugly and huge waste of space which forces me to scroll to see all my bookmarks under some folders.

Hi there, I'd like to make a feature request. One of the things that I love about Google Chrome is the ability to run single window apps. This is the only feature keeping me from moving to Firefox at this point. I'd like to request that this be added as a feature in Firefox. The command could be something like:

firefox --app=https://mail.provider.com

This would spawn a single app window that does not have tabs to navigate to other apps.

Thanks!

Hello.

I'm experiencing some strangeness with the spellcheck on Firefox and would like to know if anyone can help.

I often seem to mistype "don't" as "don;t." Same with "won't." Firefox does not mark these as incorrect. But if I type "shouldn;t" or "couldn;t" I get a red underline.

Is there something I can edit to get those words with a semicolon to be marked as misspelled?

I'm using FF 91 on Win 7. But it's been this way for a long time, many different versions.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Google maps bookmarks shows icon different from site icon.

Firefox saved Google Maps Bookmark shows icon as https://www.google.com/favicon.ico instead of https://www.google.com/images/branding/product/ico/maps15_bnuw3a_32dp.ico This problem is there for many months but seems there is no fix. Google Chrome and MS Edge do not have this wrong bookmarks icon problem.

Two days ago (9/10/2021) I updated to version 92.0 on my laptop. When I attempt to scroll/drag through the bookmarks menu, the cursor, at normal speed, stays far ahead of the active bookmark. This "lag" is also noticeable when dragging the cursor through an active page/window. This was not the case before the update.

A few months ago Firefox decided to double space all the items in menus. Reading through the forums many people didn't like this because of the amount of space that the menus now take up. Fortunately there was a work around, by setting 'browser.proton.contextmenus.enabled to false they returned to normal

This morning Firefox my got upgraded and the double spacing problem is back again. However there appears to be a bug with the setting and the menus won't return to normal. I'm now stuck with stupidly large menus that won't fit on the screen and lots of painful scrolling.

Does anybody have an alternative workaround until this is fixed?

Firefox will not update, but continuaaly load unstoppable popups suggesting I download and install a new copy. This is "Firefox for Acer". One other question about this was answered "I assume that you can ask this at the Acer support forum as they should know this best." wgich means, I suppose, that the responder doesn't knowm but likes answering questions.

Does anyone know? Is this why Firefox fails to update? Will re-installing eliminate the problem? Is there any way to stop the popups?

Before I close the Firefox browser i go to Settings>Clear Data> Cookies & Site Data>Cached Web Content. I clear all and the Cached Web Content is lowered to 45kb. History is deleted. There is nothing in Manage Data or Manage Exceptions. The computer is turned off. A day later the computer is turned on and Cached Web Content is 2Mb.

Windows Defender anti-virus malware scan and full scan have been run. The computer is up to date, Win 10 Home, version 21H1, OS build 19043.1237.

Any idea what is causing Cached Web Content to grow from 45kb to 2 Mb when the computer is turned off?

Greetings. I have scoured the web and read all the community posts on this robot head, under remote control, and orange stripes in the address bar problem that so many people seem to be having. There are a few answers, but almost all of them use very technical terms that are way above my head and not defined. None of them provide a sequence of steps to fix the problem that a browser novice might be able to follow. Surely there must be a way to fix this or to explain to frustrated users why it is there and not removable. None of my other Firefox browsers have this on other machines.

Is there a series of steps to solve the problem? That would be so helpful especially without undefined terms. Thanks so much. This type of answer will help so many frustrated users (me included of course) :)

I just fired up a computer I have not used in like 6 months.

I tried to login to my CURRENT Firefox account which I use with 3 devices.

I go through the email + password + verification process but when I finally enter the verification code (sent to the RIGHT email address) Firefox says "wrong password" and shows an OLD email I used to use.

I changed this email twice at least in the past 1+ years so I am not sure what's happening.
