Hi

to ALL Firefox admins and programmers.....

I think Im speaking for most people when I say this......

PUT THE DAMN TABS !!!!!BELOW!!!! the address bar already!!

People have been begging you to do this for ******* years!!!

Stop being such a**holes and make it like this BY DEFAULT FOREVER! And add a simple option in the setting that always allows the user to put the tabs above or below....but I know most people want this always BELOW!!!

Fix this issue PLEASE it pisses soooo many people off having the tabs above the address bar. ...Also when I double click on the empty space beside the tabs it just shrink the open window.....change this so double clicking on the empty area OPENS A NEW TAB...

Signed a VERY pissed off user!

Netflix quit working today. It said my browser version was no longer supported. I updated from v.86 to v.89. It looks like crap. New tab + icon is gone. "tab bar" is not transparent or dark mode. And guess what: Netflix still doesn't work. That's probably their problem but now I have no Netflix, weird crap on the whatever bar, add-on icons are gone, and this big gaudy tab bar.

How do I rollback to a previous version? I'd rather not have excuses or sales pitches as to why 89 is better from the newer-is-better crowd. For me 89 is NOT better.

So, how do I rollback to a previous version?

Now there is a huge white bar up top with my open tabs.

I prefer it how it was in v88

Thanks)

(it really is terrible now, and while i always promoted FF to whoever, I think this unwanted change makes me want to look elsewhere, sadly)

Firefox just up-dated itself to latest version after 88.01. And now, while the google search box appears in the centre of my homepage, like it has always done, as soon as I start typing into it, the search defaults to that horrible Chrome-like search bar at the top of the screen. How do Istop this? Or can I revert to my much loved earlier?

As I say the tabs bar is open and you can see the desktop though it. There are no tabs there - clicking in the space does nothing. As I sought a fix for hours by disabling all add ons etc I did notice that when I opened "Customize Toolbar" that the tabs appear at the bottom of the page... I also noticed that if I click on a link a single tab appears down there and if I click a link in that page a new tab appears (the previous one disappears) and I can keep doing that. As I click the "X" on each to close it the one just before it reappears at the bottom of the page. I share all of this because it may offer clues. I, however, remain clueless. I hope I don't have to change browsers but I can't get anything done like this. Thank you for reading.

     SUB   : How do I move address bar to above tabs?
     To    : https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/new/desktop/form
     I have recently, past few days, been upgraded to
  Firefox Browser ver 89.0.
     It made changes I am not pleased with.
     It saved essentially none of my preferences, bookmarks,
  extensions, add-ons and etc.
     Pretty much had to start from scratch, reloading extensions,
  re-configuring extensions, has taken me hours.
     For some reason year upon year Firefox always messes with the
  address bar - tabs positions.
     I get it the way I like, then * BOOM * it gets reset.
     During this past "RESET", my preferences are not saved, they
  get blown away, year after year.
     I have to spend many, many hours attempting to get positions
  back to the way I want.
     Here is current (not-pleased-with) appearance :
     ============================================
  File  Edit  View  History  Bookmarks  Tools  Help
  Tab   Tab   Tab   Tab   Tab   Tab
  Address bar, where the web page url is displayed.



     Here is what I want. What keeps getting blown away :
     ==================================================
  File  Edit  View  History  Bookmarks  Tools  Help
  Address bar, where the web page url is displayed.
  Tab   Tab   Tab   Tab   Tab   Tab


     Notice the Address bar is above the Tabs.



     Now, in ver 89, after many hours of searching, it seems
  instead of some simple switch I can select or de-select via
  a check-box, I now need to become a programmer to make this
  change.
     I am not in any fashion or manner a programmer, nor do I want
  to become one.
     Cutting, pasting, editing, proofing code, alas, is not in
  my positronic pathway(s), it simply does not stick, error in
  processing and so on.
     Perhaps I have overlooked something in my searching to
  correct this positioning problem?
     Where is the check-box I can select or de-select to position
  the Address bar to my liking?
     Please and thank you.

Since the upgrade I have not been able to access sites I have used in Firefox for years. All the sites are at shockwave.com, such as https://www.shockwave.com/gamelanding/the-daily-snoop-a-hidden-object-game.jsp. I contacted Shockwave but they have no idea, just telling me to disable my add-ons such as ad blockers. That's no solution because (1) I've always had the same add-ons enabled and (2) the same add-ons do not affect MS Edge.

I attached a screen shot of the page I now see in Firefox and what it should look like.

Does anyone have a suggestion to resolve this issue within Firefox?

Thanks.

I don't now what happened but my tab bar has a different look to it now. Possible a Firefox update changed the look of my tab bar, but nonetheless, it is now harder to see the tab bar. It seems to have a more transparency look to it making it harder to see the tabs. How do I change the tab bar look to what it used to look like, which was easier to see? Can someone help? Thank you.

I am a software engineer. I love Firefox but I believe that a memory leak may have developed. The problem goes back a couple of months. I have one instance of Firefox open with three tabs opened but the task manager shows a large number of instances of Firefox being open and using a lot of memory. Currently there are nine instances of Firefox shown in the task manager. Look at the screen shot of the task manager that I uploaded.

I often have a lot of tabs open but I rebooted and opened a new instance of 

Firefox with only 3 tabs. I did open a new private window at the same time as the session I explained above but then I closed the private window. The memory leak might be the private window remaining in memory after it was closed. My OS is Windows 7. Yeah I know MS has stopped supporting it but I hate up dating the OS.

Thanks, Bill Smith

This: https://blog.mozilla.org/addons/2021/04/19/changes-to-themeable-areas-of-firefox-in-version-89/

Says that I can’t have lines separating my unused tabs anymore. This is SO annoying. Can anyone help me get borders between my unused tabs?

Also, WHY ARE YOU DOING THIS Mozilla? Now I have to stop EVERYTHING that I am doing and research how I can make your browser work the way I want it to. Why do you always assume that you know what is best for me?

I tried the "Stylish" add-in but when I try to install a specific style from their site - nothing happens.

The Firefox Universe is extremely vast, and trying to Google “lines between my unused tabs” is getting me nowhere. I don’t know how to develop themes. I don’t code. I just want the browser to look like it did last week. Is it really so much to ask?

Every. Single. Time. I update Firefox - I regret it!!!

I had a Firefox Update earlier today.

When I brought up the Firefox Home page and typed in a search term eg E Bay. It went to the top of the page instead of staying in the main search box in the middle of the page as it normally is. How do I return to the previous system where I can click on the arrow to the right of the box which was in the middle of the page.

Thank you

hi, the latest update changed the homepage a lot. The most bothersome thing i have noticed is that when i type anything into the search area it immediately moves from the search bar in the middle of the page to the address bar at the top of the page where i usually just get URL's. It doesnt serve any purpose i can think of and i have never used the address bar to do normal searches before. Is there any way to change my homepage back to the way it was? Or at least stop the search and address bars from being linked?
