Today, I opened FF and found that I cannot see my unpinned tabs. They seem squished together (see image). I tried restarting FF (108.0) & my computer (running on Pop!OS 22.04, Gnome 42.5), but that didn't help. Tried disabling my Gnome extensions, didn't help. Tried changing FF theme, didn't help. Any help much appreciated! Thank you!

The 89.0 update is great, but I'm disappointed by the new homepage (see the picture). The font is too small, and if I scale the page, the lower row doesn't fit to the screen. A good option would be to remove the useless huge Firefox logo in the middle of the page and to shift the search bar up. Then I could just scale the page. Is there a way to do it?

Changing fonts on every page is not a satisfying solution, I only want to fix the homepage.

Bonjour, depuis plusieurs semaines j'ai des bugs graphiques sur l'interface de Firefox et sur les pages web. J'ai attendu en pensant que ça passerait avec une nouvelle mise à jour mais rien ne passe. J'ai testé le mode dépannage et le mode réparer Firefox, le problème persiste.

The proton changes might make for a better smartphone experience, but it really trashes operations on computers. In case you are wondering why firefox's share of the browser market continues to slide, upgrades like "proton" are the main reason.

I just upgraded to Ubuntu 22.04 and along with that I upgraded Firefox. It's no longer possible to scroll the comment section of articles, just the main page. I've seen this on both the National Review and the NY Times. The scroll bar is also not persistent, it only shows up when the mouse is over it. Is there a way to fix this or is this a bug in Firefox 100.0?

FF 100.0.2 Ubuntu 22.04 LTS

I have deleted my bookmarks with the Bookmark manager, but where are they now? I cannot find them in /trash and all of the *bookmark* files on my laptop are miniscule (like 127 bytes.) The json files are no better, when I imported previous bookmark files they were empty.

There is not "Usability" topic. Hence selected "Other".

Containers are one of those features that I use almost in every Firefox session. It clearly segregates my office and personal work. I am asking for a feature, that could already be there somewhere in the advanced configuration (about:config).

Before asking let me set the context. Before containers, I used profiles to separate my work. But the disadvantage of profiles is that the cache, auto-fill, history all those convenient features are not the same everywhere. But the advantage of profiles is that every shortcut key, clicking of link would open in the same work area profile. I don't have to open context menu and select a profile each time.

"Container Windows" could be such a feature which is best of both worlds. I am not aware if this is already there. At least the feature is not obviously visible. There is a feature in "multi-container plugin" which can move all the tabs belonging to a container to a separate window. if we add a feature, in this plugin or Firefox core, to bind a particular window to just one container then it can bring all the goodness of "profiles" and we can still use all the features of "containers".

1. Clicking a link in other application would open the default container (no-container) window 2. Control+Click, by default, opens tab in a bound container window, and hence in the same container 3. Context menu in all windows (bound and unbound) still gives an option to open tab in any container

Please let me know how to do this, if this is already implemented. Or tell me where to raise this feature request.

I am not able to download any kind of file, from any kind of website to my disk. I am able to select open on the download dialog, and this will open the file and save it to the temp directory firefox uses for this function, but this does not save the files to disk/the download folder like I want to. I am unable to "Save image as..." as well, since this is considered a download. There is no record of these downloads even being attempted in the download history.

Noticed yesterday but not as prominent, firefox suddenly steals all window focus, trying to do anything in any other window is pushed into firefox no matter if it is minimised or in another workspace. I have tested this in a clean install along with a clean profile. Bitwarden and other windows seem to act weird when they are interacted with.

This all works well and good on b8 and stable. I am using wayland (Ubuntu 22.* default), but xwayland is available.

Whenever I use Firefox 109.0 (on Ubuntu 22.04) to transfer money between savings and checking in my online banking account, I get a window pop-up that says "No Apps Available". This is something going on my bank's servers and shouldn't require Firefox or any local helper apps on my end to do anything. I will post the window that pops up. Has anyone else encountered this? And is there a way to disable these pop-up?

Platform: Raspberry Pi 4, Ubuntu MATE 20.04.2 (Linux 5.4.0-1036-raspi) , Firefox 89.0+build2-0ubuntu0.20.04.2

When displaying video (e.g. youtube) and graphics, the output show "image noises".

I have taken an snapshot and attached an screendump.

The areas enclosed by Thick Black Pencil shows the symtom.

1. Previous version of Firefox ( 75.0+build3-0ubuntu1 ) did not have the problem.

2. Other browser (e.g. Chromium) displaying the same video does not have the problem, so it seems it is Firefox related.

3. In a certain extend, this also affect outside video frames within Firefox evem in Settings page, see second attachment.

Please kindly shine some light.
