Firefox did an update to their 89.0 version and now I can't log into any Google accounts (or any emails at all) using the Firefox browser. The reset button on my browser will quickly flicker once and nothing else happens. When I use other browsers, I am able to get into my Google accounts and other email systems that are not Firefox/gmail.

After the update to 89.0 the Shortcuts have taken an 'visual upgrade' that makes all the images chosen for them half as small as they need to be because they need to have a 'cute little grey border' almost as big as the image between it and the corners of the square.

I have twenty four shortcuts, that I differentiate at a glance through the images without having to stop to read the text on each one and this stupid change is really roasting my mellows, I have taken a look and haven't found any option to revert it to the previous look, anyone knows any way to do it or do I have to install the previous firefox update and stop updating and give up security updates to save myself from this stupid change?

I'll just attach the screenshots I guess. I also have Firefox Focus and another browser installed and they both work fine.

I'd rather not reinstall FF or wipe data as I have lots of stored logins and history and so on. I've been using it on here for quite a long time now with only one extension which is ublock origin.

I'm not 100% sure how sync works. I tried setting it up to see if I could use it to preserve my data but the sign in for it wouldn't load either (same error).

Thanks all :)


... oh I can't add images from Focus so I'll just link to them:

I recently updated Mozilla to v 80.0 (64 bit) I have Mozilla set so that it does not search from the address bar, and I use the optional search bar.

When I create a new tab the default page contains a google search box, as per the attached screen shot. But if I type in that search box, the search term appears in the address bar, and then Mozilla tells me the address doesn't look right.

Why is the search term automatically entered in the address bar? Since I have the seaparate search bar my search term should appear there.

BTW I hate searching from the address bar. If I want to search I type it in the search box, or in the search box in new tab. Separating the search and address bars is one of my favorite features of Mozilla vs the other browsers.

When trying to access the Google Developer Profile webpage on Firefox desktop, I encounter many errors. I can't sign in a lot of the times, sometimes I kind of get in but it says my profile isn't finished even though it is. I ended up creating it with MS Edge and accessing it that way after I had done a couple of the Kotlin training exercises to make sure my progress was getting saved. Many other times I get a 404 message; the errors I get vary a bit.

I have even tried starting Firefox in safe mode just to disable all extensions and add-ons, still with no luck.

It is only with Firefox Desktop that I am having this issue. When I use my Android device and bring it up on Firefox mobile, I don't have any of these issues. I see my profile and badges just fine.

Before several updates in the last year when you added a bookmark, you could choose what folder you wanted to add the bookmark.

Now when you add a bookmark it places the tab in the last bookmark selected. Once this is done then you have to select the bookmark and do a edit. At this point you can choose where you would like to store the book mark.

Is this a bug or was this intentional on the part of Mozilla? I find this is an unnecessary step and very annoying.

I guess I didn't make myself clear about book marks.

When I click on Bookmarks the following is listed: Show Bookmarks Bookmark Current Tab Bookmark All Tabs Other Bookmark Then my list of bookmarks

When I bookmark a tab, I am not given a choice as to where I wish to put the bookmark. The tab is placed in whatever previous bookmark folder last saved. I then click on bookmarks again and then there is "edit bookmark". At this time when I do the edit I can choose where to place the bookmark. I understand how to edit a book mark.

The problem is you CAN NOT choose where to place the bookmark when you first bookmark a tab. You have to return to the bookmark and do an edit. Before several updates you could choose where to place the bookmark and not have to come back and do an edit to get the bookmark in the desired folder.

My original question was is this a bug or was this method intentional leaving out being able to choose without have to do an edit after the fact?

By the way there is NO blue start showing when I do an edit. It may be because I am using a Mac.

Greetings Forum:

After an upgrade, I noticed my Thunderbird installation on Debian 11 LXQt was no longer able to update email for any of my previously configured gmail accounts. Non-gmail accounts on the same TB installation are unaffected. The bottom window where I normally read emails shows:

Your connection is not secure

The website tried to negotiate an inadequate level of security.

live.thunderbird.net uses security technology that is outdated and vulnerable to attack. An attacker could easily reveal information which you thought to be safe. The website administrator will need to fix the server first before you can visit the site.

Error code: NS_ERROR_NET_INADEQUATE_SECURITY

I have not made any changes on the gmail side and I can still access the gmail account directly via WUI as well as my android app. Does anybody have any suggestions?

How can we remove the "New Tab" option when right clicking a tab? I find this feature absolutely useless as there's already and "+" tab button to create a new tab. I used to be able to reload tabs easily and quickly by Right-Click tab, Left-Click and the Reload option was selected. NOW, I have to move the mouse down to the Reload option, or press the "R" key on the keyboard. Simple things, yes, but something that is easily annoying if it's added when it's not needed and having to change the way we use the browser. What would of been nicer is that "Pinned" tabs would always be pinned, regardless if that window was the last to be closed or not.

Hello,

I just upgraded to Firefox 87 and noticed that I wasn't able to go back to the previous webpage by clicking on the backspace button like what I have done in the past if I'm not using a mouse on my laptop and had to click on the back button in the toolbar with the trackpad. I'm not too sure of why that happened with the upgrade and was a little surprised about that. Hope I can be able to get around this in some way if one of you know anything about this. Thanks.

Hello,

after an update up to Firefox 89.0 (64bit) on my elementaryOS 5.1.7 (based on Ubuntu 18.04) I've got a grey-colored rectangle in the upper part of my window that overlays all elements of websites (cf. attached screenshot), however I still could pass via hyperlinks if there are any under the rectangle. It is very light grey in light mode and dark grey in dark mode.

I've tried following steps according to possible solutions found in the Internet : - launch Firefox in safe mode (the rectangle disappears) - make sure the default theme is used - turn on/off the hardware acceleration - update or disable and delete all add-ons and plug-ins (rectangle still present in normal mode) - delete and reinstall Firefox with wiping all its files on the local machine (including /home/user/.mozilla and /etc/firefox* folders) - delete again and install the flatpak version


Nothing of the above helps except of the safe mode. As I have tried already to delete add-ons and plug-ins, what else can I disable to try to solve the issue in normal mode ?

I would appreciate your help as this is the only browser that I (want to) use on a daily basis. Thanks in advance!

I use Thunderbird for my Earthlink email account (imap). I have not changed any configuration options. I was checking my email and I noticed that I only have mail that goes back to May 21, 2021. I used to have older mail in my Thunderbird mail account. I do have a backup of my Thunderbird directories that may contain the old emails. But, when I load / restore the MSF and email files from the backup, it still deletes the older emails.

Is there a way to recover these emails from a backup? The emails where in the main inbox and not subfolders.

I always used the original Firefox search as my home page; one simple little panel in the middle of the page with a quick and easy search feature. I loved it. The latest version of Firefox has ruined it. Now we are forced to search from the address bar. I hate, loathe, and despise doing a search from the address bar. It is an A-1 nightmare. After you type one letter, it stops registering what you type and throws up a ridiculously long list of the web pages you've visited. Type another letter, and you have to go through this mess again. It makes for an absurdly slow search and never actually gets you to what you're searching for. I wound up with search results that weren't even related to each other much less related to what I was searching for. After one day of use, I'm so frustrated with this feature that I'm opening Google to do the search.

How do we reset this new version of Firefox to only search from the Firefox homepage search box and not go anywhere near that address bar? Or do I have to uninstall the latest update to get Firefox to function properly again? Even if it's an add-on that forces the search to where it belongs...anything!
