What idiot thought it would be a great idea to replace "View Image" with "Open Image In New Tab"? Seriously? What the fracking hell. I used View Image all the time with a combination of Ctrl W to close tabs after saving images in bulk. Now you've deleted View Image to replace it with something dumber. Perhaps instead of replacing it, you should have altered its functionality to open a new tab if someone's holding Shift when they click it. Did you ever think of that? No, you were probably thinking about how to make Firefox worse. Ugh, why is firefox getting worse and worse with time? You guys keep taking away features and deliberately ruining the firefox experience, pretty soon its just gonna be another dumbed down clone of Chrome, the browser for the lower intellect. "Oh shame, too many buttons? Let us dumb it down for you. Configurations too complex? Here, we'll stupify it for you~ Its ok to be an ape level intelligence~"

You should be teaching people to be smarter, not bowing to their lower intellectual capabilities.

Now I've had to get a plugin to bring back the view image feature and this plugin actually does it better than you ever could have. Maybe its Mozilla thats getting dumber and not the rest of the world. Maybe their developers are losing intellect so they have to dumb down their own program so they can manage it. Who knows. I'm starting to suspect this.

Yea, I'm angry. You keep ruining Firefox.

English isnt my first language so sorry in the first place.

Firefox has the option to WHAT to show when you enter a LETTER in the ADRESS BAR.

You can CHOOSE what do you want to see when you type in a LETTER. I choose not to show anything from my timeline or ANYTHING ELSE except GOOGLE and DUCKDUCK And even with the settings set Firefox does not care.

Why arent the settings working?!

Devs: STOP. CHANGING. THE. UI!

I don't know if it's a need to mark your territory, or some marketing major blathering about "holistic new user experience paradigms"--and I put up with the stupid move to tabs on top (because apparently some dev felt that what Firefox users really wanted was Chrome!)--but this is a hideous, steaming turd.

'Oh no, showing the 'close tab' icon and clearly delineating between tabs interrupts the synergistic flow of the UI! Let's make the tabs one disgusting, unreadable blur from left to right! Also, let's make them take up more real estate on the screen, because people have higher resolution screens now--we can totally dominate the upper quarter! Oh, and force the change to the new layout, don't give people an option to revert--and don't warn them, either! EVERYONE MUST SEE OUR MAJESTIC, PERFECT, UNASSAILABLE VISION! Surely that won't confuse TF out of a bunch of grandparents whose hapless children/grandchildren will have to completely re-explain, multiple times, how to get to Facebook!'

Rolled back to 88.01, went through the "new profile" crap you put in to discourage rollback/cover for poor programming, and disabled automatic updates. Barring a major, earth-shattering security vuln, I'm done updating. And when that time comes, I'll find another browser.

Posting here because they've stopped soliciting feedback--probably because they know they've unleashed a sloppy splattered dook onto the world and they're tired of being screamed at.

Dear Firefox friends, I am using the up-to-date version of Firefox. How can I prevent the search to occur on the URL bar? I want to use the URL bar only for typing the URL addresses but not for search or googling. It is annoying function and if I want to do so I will use Chrome. Thank you for your kind help and advice.

My favorite add-ons aren't available with this newest version. I while ago I had prevented the update so that I could help using them. Now I've gotten a new ANDROID device and I don't know what version I need. I do know that I was able to look for add-ons unlike this version that appears to just show me some I can pick if I want, but there's no add-on browsing page likes there was.

Someone in Bugzilla instructed me to use Troubleshoot Mode for a separate problem, so I did. After reverting back to normal mode, I find that my addons are gone. Then I checked about:profiles. I find that one profile (default-release) has my tabs in normal colors (gray) and no addons, while another profile (default) has my addons, but the tabs are strangely white, which I don't want. How do I get the addons to appear while having normal tab color (gray)?

Thanks Cor-el for replying with advice on how to use about:config to ensure the screencapture was toggled correctly. It wasn't and I corrected that. Now I have the icon in the toolbar and on the right click menu but when I attempt to use them all I get is a popup menu with a large black X in it and nothing can be done with it. Also, on the toolbar items that are added to it all appear in the overflow and there is no way of getting them to appear on the screen by reducing the size of the search bar. I've been using firefox ever since it first appeared and I've never had problems like this before.

Hi, My Thunderbird installation has suddenly lost the ability to copy the Original message into a reply when I click the Repy button. I haven't changed any settings. See Image for Composition & Addressing settings. I did notice yesterday that I have a newer version of Thunderbird 91.1.2. Reverting to 91.1.0 made no difference. The system has also had some recent Windows Updates applied. Everything else works fine.

Since I downloaded TB 91.2.0, when I am starting it all my folders in the folder panel are developed. It is really annoying as I have hundred of folders that I need to close manually at every startup. Why can't this version remember the status of which folders were opened and which one were closed?

I found the following css for highlighting all context menu items for Firefox 91 ESR (not working on side-bar items from hamburger menu)

/* Highlight context menu items */

menu[_moz-menuactive="true"], menuitem[_moz-menuactive="true"] {

 background-color: #e8eefd !important;  /* blue 95% lighter */
 color: #3d3dff !important; /* blue 62% darker */
 /* https://www.w3schools.com/colors/colors_picker.asp */

}

How do I apply the same highlighting shown by the red arrow to the text where grey and heavy blue is used for highlighting? I find css very convoluted and it's hard for me to know what ids/parameters to use to get the desired effects. Any help appreciated.
