I am currently on FF88. It seems that every time there is an update, the font gets smaller and smaller.

I have been able to adjust the global fonts easily.

With all available extensions not available anymore, there is no way to customize fonts for tabs, bookmarks or toolbars.

I have to move in so closely to navigate around FF. I hate to ask for something this simple, please provide a option.

I am not able to do code, so that's out. Not really excited to move permanently to another browser but I might have to. Was able to adjust the above items easily.

This has been an ongoing issue for FF.

Will this every be addressed? Thanks

Hi guys, I'm using Firefox for the first time today on my smartphone. So far I have used Vivaldi.

Now I miss a possibility in Firefox to get directly to the start page with one click, and thus to get to the favourites (most used pages, collections, ...).

In Vivaldi there is a kind of home button in the middle. Is that also possible with Firefox? Or how do you do it?

Thank you!

I've been a long time Firefox user since around 2005 and have always enjoyed Firefox until now. This issue has been ongoing for over a year though. I never would have thought that a simple task as entering a web address in the address bar and hitting enter would become so difficult, though for a while now this seems to be the case and to the point to where I'm considering not bothering with the Firefox browser anymore. I do enjoy where Firefox is now in current development and the way it looks as well the great performance. However, when basic functionality such as typing in a web address and hitting enter becomes difficult all the aforementioned positives become less and less relevant. It seemed to all start when development came to redesign the appearance of the UI, not sure what version. Basically, what I come to experience now roughly 90 percent of the time I type a web address in the address bar and hit enter is the browser does nothing. Sometimes it takes 5 to 6 tries with having to put the mouse courser back into the address bar and hitting enter multiple times before the browser decides it want's to go the website. Same issue occurs when opening a bookmark in another tab, switch to the tab and the site isn't loaded, have to hit enter multiple times before the web address will begin to load. Seems also that any setting regarding tabs background loading isn't present anymore in the settings either. Same issue will occur when selecting a favorite that comes up while typing in the address bar.

Recently I had reinstalled my entire operating system and was hopeful that this issue would be resolved by doing so with a fresh install of Firefox too, though the issue is still present.

I have no add-ons or themes that modify the address bar, nor any search add-ons. In fact, this issue occurs with no add-ons installed at all. The only thing I can think currently is that it is an issue and or bug of some kind within the search and or address bar settings current design.

My settings here are attached as images.

Is there any way that I can get the new Fox pro to do with the old foxboro used to do by saving to a PDF? Sharing to any of my PDF programs does not work because it does not send the information on through. I've been a foxboro user for the last 12 years however the new version is just unusable for me.
