Site information (security / lock icon menu) not displaying correctly in Nightly

So this visual bug has been happening on my Nightly install for months now. The "Site information for website.com" menu that appears when you click the lock icon in the address bar is basically unusable for me. The menu's header, "clear cookies" button, and arrow button are all fine, but the text in between is covered in globe icons. The "Connection Security" sub-menu that the arrow leads to has a similar case. (See screenshot.)

Huge disclaimer: I am using Shadowfox, which modifies a Firefox install to make UI elements darker. It has made text difficult to read for me at times, but it has never produced any really strange artifacts like this one as far as I can tell. I do have a Developer Edition install with no Shadowfox and it doesn't have the issue. However, maybe this is a common Nightly issue. (I guess this wouldn't make sense since DE is even more experimental than Nightly? I think?)

Maybe this is a problem for the Shadowfox team. Ultimately, the solution I really want is native support for a full-fledged dark mode, with black or gray color for UI elements such as the context menu. If this isn't going to happen and Shadowfox is indeed the source of the issue, I'll gladly let them know. But I thought it would be good to share with Mozilla, and why not the community, too. (Feedback tool is down right now.)

So Firefox suddenly and without asking just changed its look into something absolutely... No words can describe level of my disgust, so I wont fill this post by angry ranting.

Is there a way to get the old look back? (preferably without any downloads needed, cos at remote desktops that is not always an option)

Please, don't force me to use Chrome. I hate that browser, but they at least had decency to create skin, which makes it look like Firefox. The normal one, not the new diarrhea all over the screen one.

I have two laptops and a mobile phone that are connected to Firefox and have sync operating. One the laptops shows a location of Wrexham which is approximately correct. The other shows a location of Boardman, OR, United States, a place some 6000 miles away and of which I have never heard. Googling the location gives me no useful information, other than it is a small town with no special characteristics. A screenshot of part of the Firefox Accounts page illustrates what the situation is.

The laptop stated as in Boardman has a location set within Windows. That is not Wrexhan but is only a few miles from there.

I have used iplocation.net which gives me the location of my ISP, in England.

I sometimes use a VPN (for work) and when being used iplocation.net gives a different English location which I think is the locaton of the ISP for my Employer.

I am unsure what is going on here nor do I know what implications there are for my security. I do not seem to be able to fix this.

Can anyone help, please?

With this new version, the appearance is very different. The bookmarks are all spaced out, the menus are all the same. I thought the way it was, was very sharp and crisp, and took up much less space. Is there anyway to revert or change back to that appearance for menus, bookmarks, bars at the top, etc.

In Firefox 88 the pocket button was inside the address bar. Please check image attached.

Then when we entered on a website that already was in our pocket list, the icon became red and with a simples click, we could remove it from our pocket list, simple and easy!

Now with the FF 89 changes, everything is worst, as you can see on the image, the button is located outside and we do not have that option anymore. The only way is entering the pocket website, searching and removing it.

Please, tell me there is a way to return back the pocket button inside the address bar ? Thanks in advance.

Hey all.

I've been using firefox for as long as i can remember and it was pretty much always the same, things are in the same locations etc... at least they have been now for the past many years.

I have updates disabled, i have clicked no for the past few times, and today i open firefox and it had updated itself... and just for fun i'm going to repeat myself, i have updates disabled...

The new top tabs are bigger with smaller text now, the "play" and "mute" button that was on the right side is now on the left and you can only see it when you hover the mouse over the tab itself. All that so there can be written "playing" under the name of the tab now. Instead of the "speaker" icon that was to the right of the tab name. Not even 24 hours ago i had it like that. Utterly useless changes. Who comes up with these ideas? It's helping no one! Stop it :)

It's fine that you have to push updates for security reasons etc... But this user interface changing is seriously going to make me stop using firefox. Why can't you just make your updates but let my browser be and look the same as it has always been!?

This is so annoyingly pathetic. I hope you can do something to change this, or at least give us the old theme with smaller top bar, play/mute on the right side as it was before so it's easy to see and find what tab is playing without having the text of the tab become smaller.

This is why i have disabled updates! It's like opening a drawer that always has socks in it for years, and all of sudden there's spoons in that drawer. Why would you change the position of things? What's next, the close firefox at the bottom left corner? Just for fun to mix things up? ;)

So lame guys.

I find the updated version difficult to see. I've used Firefox happily for at least 15 years with no problems and appreciate its existence.

But the icons I see look just like the Bing icons - very finely drawn and small - and I can't control the colors. Also, the PBS pages have white rectangles scattered around, possibly unfinished labels

So how can I safely reinstall Firefox 8.8?

Thanks - P.B.

New theme is absolutely not contrasting. The font merges with the background, no separators are visible between the elements, although the tabs opposite are separated from the page. And a huge number of other annoying little things. You suggest choosing a different theme, but there are the same problems and an additional annoying background pattern.

Please make it possible to return to the classic theme and stop changing the interface and familiar controls. I am shaking from every update notification, because i expect everything will break again.

I also advise you to read reviews on news sites dedicated to this update. Many people unhappy with these changes.

I found a partial solution (about: config -> browser.proton.enabled -> FALSE ) problem, but as it became known, it will soon stop working.

I understand that FireFox a free product and I would shut up, but it upsets me that the tool that I have been using almost all my life has gone bad. And second, and even worse, the Internet is increasingly dominated by Chrome, remaining without competition.

How do I make my browser display go back to the settings that it had on 2 June 2021? I am very unhappy with the last update which customized my browser. The look is awful compared to the last iteration. I was happy with what it looked like before. Whoever thought that the tabs belong at the very top of the page? This update is very aggravating. What do I change it back to what i had yesterday? I'm running Windows 10, and I think I have Firefox Version 89.0. Thank you.

I just want it back the way it was a week ago! The new tabs suck and look bad. I loved how it looked before, with everything square and outlined. I'm 19 and grew up with iPhones, so I'm not just saying this because I am a boomer. How do I revert the update?

Update question: Today I got an update window and I tapped Do Not Install but apparently it did anyway. Now my open tab handles are not delineated like they were, the typeface on them is harder to read, general appearance things that don't seem to be controllable in preferences.
