Hi,

Am I the only one plagued with an issue about the option "View" > "Toolbars" > "Bookmarks Toolbar" > "Only Show on new Tab" ?

It finally used to work until version 88

(prior to that I had to use custom css tricks)

With 89, it does not work anymore

I upgraded to Firefox v89/64bit. Now when I open a new tab Firefox forces me to use the address bar for searches. I can't find anything in 'Settings' that will let me change this. Maybe I've missed something obvious. Is there a way to turn this 'feature' off? Thanks in advance for any help provided.

Hello,

My computer crashed today. On restart, Firefox looks different. I'm sure I had a theme or add on installed prior to the crash. But I don't have any memory of what it was. Is there a history I can look at for that? If so, how do I access it? Thanks.

Two Issues - checkboxes borked in settings, and i hate the new proton tabs and want to revert to the old tabs

Issue 1: When I open up the firefox settings, I cannot tell in the slightest what is and isn't checked off because nothing appears in the checkboxes. They're just empty squares regardless of whether something is checked off or not. I've attached a screenshot below.

Issue 2: I really, really hate the new proton tabs. I had them disabled by disabling proton, but I guess I forgot to disable auto-updates, because I just opened Firefox to find that they're back, much to my displeasure. It's difficult for me to distinguish tabs from each other at a glance now as they are all the same color with no borders *and* having 'autoplay disabled' and 'playing' and stuff like that in TINY all caps font below the tab label is NOT USEFUL. It is distracting to the eye, and I have to squint and lean closer to be able to read what the heck it's even saying. This is shitty for nearsighted people like me. Moreover, at a glance it is IMPOSSIBLE now to tell which tab sound is coming from. This is a huge step backwards in functionality and accessibility.

I wasn't using mozilla for aesthetics - I was using it because it functioned and was more stable / less of a memory hog in my experience than chrome, and I appreciated the ease and convenience of syncing across different computers as well as the built in password management. However, I question whether I can continue to use this browser if you're going to prioritize aesthetics over functionality and user preference.

Seriously - that the tabs DO NOT CONNECT to the page is itself distracting and weird, *but also* that the rest of the tabs blend together and have extra tiny unreadable text rather than the infinitely more distinguishable audio symbol that indicated which tabs had sound playing before is so terrible.

So.... tl;dr: HOW DO I GET OLD TABS BACK?

Hello,

I have a new issue with Firefox that began after a routine, small update to my Mac OS (Catalina 10.15.7). Please refer to the images provided, showing a normal view of a website in Chrome vs what I am seeing in Firefox.

  • Link colors are being overwritten by some default blue and purple
  • Graphical interface elements, such as the line underneath "All" in the navbar, do not appear
  • Black outlines are appearing where they do not normally, and elements that would be in a light gray are now black, etc

These issues are only limited to my Firefox browser and do not occur in other browsers I have installed. I have performed the Refresh Firefox function, and all of these issues are persisting. In things like Gmail, these black lines and flat/missing GUI elements essentially render it unusable.

I'm desperate for a solution.

I want to open an .MBOX file, and found out that Thunderbird was recommended. I downloaded it (Windows 64-bit) and then found this support page (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1285736) which explained that I needed importEportToolsNG.

However, when I tried to load the importEportToolsNG add-on, I got the message "importEportToolsNG could not be installed because it is not compatible with Thunderbird 91.0.1" (see attached file).

BTW, the same thing happened when I downloaded importEportToolsNG directly and then tried to add it in Thunderbird from a file. There is no reason why this should work, but I tried out of desperation.

Help! What can I do?

I have a Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 8, running Windows 10 Pro

I really appreciate how the Save dialog is handling this because drag'n'drop only saves the mails with %title%.

Forever you've been apply to type anything into the Google search bar on the home screen, but not anymore.

Now whateveryou type automatically appear up in the tab line with https// infront of it , then of course it comes back with ...cannot find that web address !!

I'm not looking for a web address, i'm searching a subject matter..

This change is SO annoying I'm now seriously thinking of dumping my much loved Firefox for something which works better.

Why isn't there the 'option' to do search without it 'assuming' you're looking for a web address ?


So Annoying and frustrating, whoever dreamt this idea up....?

Dear Cor-el,

Thank you for responding and answering my question. You have helped me out gratefully! Your answer is right, easy to understand and to fulfill. I can move those icons from now on. Hereby I have an other question. I have more extensions added, but not all of those icons are shown in the toolbar. How do I realize that?

Real example I have in the toolbar 4 extension icons but I have 7 extension enabled. Where have been those other 3 icons?

Regards,

Van Lieren

I don't really have a question. I have looked on the Mozilla site for a place to email the developers. I'm not happy with the new version of Firefox (attached) I have to go into History and restore tabs every time I restart my computer, I like to have many tabs continuously open so this doesn't suit me at all. Also the new search function at the top of the screen in the typical URL box is not nice, I preferred when the search was in a box in the middle of the screen and suggestions popped up when you start typing a search. Suggestions don't pop up in the new Firefox version.

I really enjoy Firefox and have been using it many years, I just wanted to share my opinions of the new version.

We’re a small company but aiming to find an email client with an ability to customise its’ look, based on our design expectations. We do have our corporate colors and styles, and would like them to be implemented within the email client.

We can come up with the UI design and would be great if someone will have an ability to implement it. Maybe there's a design team who can work with us etc.

- Can Thunderbird be design-customised? - Can someone advise a person/company who can implement this idea? - Can UX be customised? (we do not expect much here, but just in a case). - Can someone set up the final product for our employees?

Thank you for the prompt reply, Vlad
