6/7/21 Firefox just did an update on my computer. Before, the tool bar at the top was dark gray and the tabs were easily distinguishable. Now the entire area above the URL is light gray. I would prefer more contrast between the tool bar and the tabs. What happened? Thank you.

Dear Mozilla Support,

After some update (I think from 89.0.0 version of Mozilla Firefox - this version with new looks of tabs) I notice flickering on the tab when I loading website or refresh website. This looks very strange. Like I said I dindn't notice any issue with flickering on previous Mozilla Firefox versions. Only with these new versions with new look of the tabs. I didn't remember if it was 89.0.0 version or 90.0.0 version. I don't know if it is problem with the machine but I didn't notice this issue on another computer with 90.0.2 Firefox version but with Windows 10 OS. I also noticed this issue with Firefox 90.0.0.2 with Windows 7 OS on another computer so I don't know if this is problem with two computers or Firefox itself. Can you help me?

Yours faithfully, Piotr

G'Day,

I earlier posted with respect to getting tabs to appear below the address and search bars on the browser. I managed to solve that issue; however, the solution has produced a curious side effect.

When the browser has entered Full-Screen, the tabs-bar does not disappear and appears as it would in a normal browser window while both the address and search bars have been hidden. Is there some way to fix this?

As well, on a Windows 8.1 lap-top, using the CSS below, the very top of the browser has been cut off. It is not possible to see the browser control icons nor is the menu-bar visible.

A screen capture is attached as well as the CSS which was suggested in my earlier post about getting the tabs below the address bar.

Thanks,

Jim

Hi, I am using FF v80.0.1 on ubuntu 18.04.

I noticed that whenever a tab is loading there is now a static (non-spinning) icon. Previously it was spinning. I want it to spin.

In changelog for 80.0 it says:

> For users with reduced motion settings, we’ve reduced a number of animations such as tab loading to reduce motion for users with migraines and epilepsy.

Is there a way to disable this feature?

In the last few week I have had trouble with "right clicking and open in new tab". I don't know if it's because of the latest update or not. Sometimes, not always, when I try to right click on a link or a button and open in new tab, it looks like it's going to open, the new tab appears there for a few seconds, and then it disappears. I have tried "control" left click and I can sometimes get that to work if I do it several times rapidly. I first noticed it in Facebook, but now it can happen on almost any website. I had version 80.? when I first noticed it, I now have 81.0 and I still does it. Any ideas? It's not that some website don't allow right clicking for copyright reasons, I an familiar with that, this is different in that it attempts to open a new tab and within a few seconds it disappears. Before you ask, I have checked for virus's and malware.

Hi, I've been having this issue for a few months now, and it can get really annoying. Like the title says, the right side of Firefox is cut off a little for me, both in fullscreen and windowed fullscreen. This problem occurs on all websites, and is only fixed when I restart in safe mode, though I don't think any extensions that I have could be causing this problem. Any ideas would be much appreciated.

Thanks!

Please, PLEASE put back the space between the tabs in the Proton version of Firefox. As a web designer, I don't understand how any designer on your staff or any supervisor would okay what looks like a seamless tab bar. The UX is horrible.

I've temporarily changed the about:config to mimic Photon. But I understand you are going to get rid of that ability in the about:config file.

Why do you tweak a decent UI into an unusable one? This is becoming an epidemic. Similar things happen on Facebook and with Photoshop (where "upgrades" make parts of the application unusable—that is, they no longer work).

Hi! Years before I got accustomed to use the very useful function of "properties" of the tabs. Within its' windows I was able to annotate handy, personal informations, such as IDs, passwords and also some short summaries. Then, after recent updates - (my current version is 89.0.2 - 64 bits) - surprisingly this function is no more available! My question is : why was this funtion taken away ? And also : how is that possible to annotate tabs henceforth ? Thanks for your attention.

When video/audio starts playing on a browser, the tab title displays 'playing' text. This additional line resizes the window height and causes the tab content to resize too. For example youtube starts resizing video window height and width - and this is very annoying. How do I remove 'playing' text from tab FOREVER?

Hi, I have updated to the latest verson 75.0, and I am a little uncomfortable for the default action when I open a new tab, the cursor focused on the address bar , and the address bar was widened and made a little shadow to the bookmarks bar which caused discomfort for me, because I always open website by bookmarks bar, no need for typing the full address in the adress bar. I have searched the config options but none is effective and also tried about:config, is there anyway not to widen the address bar or is there a configuration when I click the bookmark in current tab,it will open in new tab not replace the current tab .If it is possible by not downloading a lower verson,please let me know how to config it,thank you.

I've just installed Firefox and every tab loses it's favicon after a few minutes. It isn't consistent, and some tabs can hold their icon longer than others. I don't know what other info to provide, they just disappear and convert to this N icon until I reload the page... It makes it super hard to tell which tabs are which.

I'll attach an image. Any ideas?

Hi and thank you in advance. I am in a serious dllema here. I was just about to hire someone to do this work on upwork or fiverr or the like when I did a search and confirmed that my saved passwords are also stored in this file. I have tried Everything I can find to get my 90 megs of tabs back, which a stupid verizon hot spot network log in screen crashed and I am just about at the end of my rope. I

have been through hours and hours of fooling with this. Already tried this site, https://json-csv.com/ pro version, this site https://www.jeffersonscher.com/ffu/scrounger.html and the firefox add on moz-extension://8fb59157-3fd6-43ac-982e-f27264d2874f/app/app.htm and a few other tools that are outdated or don't work on my system.

PLEASE, I will pay someone who is officially from Mozilla if necessary, I just need my tabs back.
