Why has my Firefox gone horrible? Toolbars heights have increased so there is less screen height for websites to use. Also line spacing of Firefox texts,eg bookmarks, have increased so no longer fit on 1 page. Help, how can I get a nice Firefox back?

Before the new design there was a button in the URL field allowing to instantly copy the URL of the open page. Now it is missing and I could not find it in the customization section.

Its approximate position and appearance are shown on the screenshot.

If the button was intentionally removed, my question becomes a feature request. Thank you in advance!

Alternatives for Buggy "Take a Screenshot" Menu in Firefox 88

I understand that there's this help page, but a lot of times site developers right click and hotkeys disabled for security reasons and this renders me unable to take a screenshot of a website.

I've also tried to add "Take a Screenshot" button from "Customize Toolbar" option to my toolbar, but most of the time it is disabled, even on support.mozilla.org page. To enable it, I need to remove it and re-adding it again with "Customize Toolbar" option.

Is there any way to re-enable "Take a Screenshot" option in 3-Dot menu? If not, is there any sane way to keep "Take a Screenshot" enabled for the rest of my Firefox session without me needing to remove and re-add it again everytime I need to take a screenshot?

When I right click on an image in Firefox, I've always been able to select "view image info". This is very helpful, but now it appears to be gone in latest Developer edition. Do others see the same. If so, why was it removed? It's still there in the regular version of Firefox.

A new version has been released - 89. And the user interface has changed again. And some of the changes are very annoying. I thought I would write a feedback (review). But I found out through google that the feedback page has been down since 2014.

So the question would be where can I leave feedback on one change or another?


I am not an English speaker, so I apologize if there are various errors in the text.

For starters, stop making assumptions about how people prefer their spacing on menus and tabs. Both are, with the latest update, too effing large, resulting in less visible screen space and an excessive amount of scrolling to access bookmarks. Do you think everybody is blind?! I desperately want to go back to the spacing in the previous version of Firefox. Is there a way to do that without downgrading to v.88? Also, the change to the color scheme makes it a lot harder to quickly see which tab is active as there isn't enough contrast.

I stopped using Chrome except in emergencies because they kept taking away my options to make the browser comfortable to me. Mozilla is now doing the same thing and it really pisses me off. You say you are making things better and/or easier, but that is only your opinion. I know you can't please everybody but why take away the ability to make tabs and menus more compact so less space is wasted and scrolling doesn't take longer?

Whoever thought Firefox 89 was a good idea is not someone with whom I agree. 89 is awful - I disregarded the update notice for days but then got sick of the reminder. BAD idea on my part. Is there any way to get rid of the topmost "tab" - they ARE NOT tabs - bar? I really liked the previous tabs that LOOKED LIKE TABS and DID NOT TAKE UP MORE ROOM on the page. Can I go back to the previous version? This one is really bad. Like, REALLY bad. Firefox "developers" need to give an option to check out the new update before committing to it.

I use the browser-integrated snipping/screen-shot tool constantly. Today I discovered that it is no longer available from the three dot menu in the address bar. Why? Can it be restored? Has it been relocated? Discontinued? This is one of the primary features that I rely on in Firefox.

The tabs, address bar, and bookmarks bar takes up too much of the screen, almost 2", while another browser I use is 1 3/8" wide. Would like to know if I can shorten that up. No need to take up all of that space.

When I right click on an image on the web I used to be able to click on "View Image Info" and it would give me information about the image, like image size and url of the image. After Firefox upgraded this is now gone. Can I get it back ? Is there a work around ? Not sure why that option would be removed.

Hello everyone, My mum's Firefox isn't showing in the ... dots area called Page actions of the bar the Take a Screenshot icon. I am able to add it from the Customize Toolbar... area but NOT back to where it was, in the Page actions area. Is there a way to do this? I tried this for 2h now and there is no explanation how that icon disappeared in the first place. Perhaps there is a way o moving icons around? Fresh install version 88.0 (64 bits), ignore Romanian language, icons are universal :)

Hi to all the developers:

To take screenshoots was a great success, and it was quite agile to take snapshots with the "page actions" menu, but the last update (FF 88.0) disappeared that option.

Please return the "Take screenshoot" button" to the "page actions" menu. This seems to be an unimportant thing, but having the button on the toolbar reduces space, especially if we take into account that there are other buttons showing information. (Img1)

But the worst thing is when some web pages appear in pop-up windows that do not show any buttons. So, how can I take a screenshot if the capture button does not appear. (Img2)

Please keep in mind that there are some people that need to take several screenshots and it is faster to activate the capture and select the desired area both with the mouse.

Since the feedback page seems to be not working, I write it here with the greatest respect, to get this to the developers.

Thank you in advance.

Hello Everyone - Today the background colour of both tabs bar and search bar changed to a wishy-washy pale blue which makes it much harder to read anything there. I am not aware that I have changed any setting myself. And I dont recall any FF update yesterday or today... I have looked through all the FF "settings" options and found nothing relevant there. Is there maybe an option buried somewhere to change the background colour? Oh, and I am not a geek or a nerd, so cannot understand any nitty-gritty stuff! Thank you for your time.

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).
