Having read through previous threads on side bar spacing of bookmarks I can't find a solution.

Basically I want to reduce the spacing on the side bar so I can see more bookmarks. Please see enclosed image. Is there an easy way of doing this. I did this some time ago using a Chrome ccs file but I can't remember how and if this works on the latest version of Firefox.

Many thanks Adrian.

With the upgrade to FF 89, the font used to display text on the browser itself (not the webpages it displays) has changed to be a thinner and possibly smaller font. My eyes do not like this!

I need to be able to either make it bold, or make it larger, or possibly both. I have tried changing the font in the settings page, but that seems to only apply to webpages, which is not what i need.

I'm running win 10 on a Toshiba Satellite laptop and Firefox v.89.

Thank you for any suggestions.

Is there a way to achieve a stable sort when you sort on a column in a message folder?

E.g., when I sort on Sender, my usual problem is that I want them to remain in Received order and they don't. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sorting_algorithm#Stability … (read more)

I've been using Thunderbird for years but have recently come across something that is annoying, at least to me. When I switch to the trash folder to look for an email I deleted the slider bar is near the top, or older emails. It's aggravating because I am usually looking for something that I deleted the same day which would be near the bottom of the folder contents. I realize this is probably just a setting I need to change but I'm not sure where to start. Thanks.

Windows 10 Firefox 88/89 64-bit PC It seems there was a compact mode before version 89? I don't know if that's what I want.

I would like to have a simple selection in FF Preferences to turn OFF the Proton stuff. I am not an IT geek and I'm not comfortable doing things like changing CSS code - if I knew how to do that stuff, I'd be using Linux not Windows. Since I'm stuck with Windows, I rely on a good browser like FF v.88 to take care of the technical stuff.

Version 89 seems to be OK with Proton shut off, but I hear this is a temporary fix. I also don't know if shutting off Proton fixed the spacing nightmare in Bookmarks - I lost mine reloading v.88 and haven't had a chance to look for them. (v.89 is on the PC upstairs - this one is still on v.88.)

For some context on the anger at FF's change, those of us who use Facebook on a regular basis were forced into a horrendous update in late 2021 which barely works, and Facebook continuously changes code, fixing what isn't broken. To find that the browser we've relied on for years did the same with no warning is very upsetting.

I'd like to get a message directly to Mozilla but "Submit Feedback" has been shut down for over a week.

On mobile phone, it is far easier to read sans serif fonts.  These even display for a second before a web page imposes its fonts.  FF Android used to allow (about:config) the user to choose between system or other font, or web font.  The switch is obviously still there - this could easily be incorporated into a simple Settings option.  This is a big deal-for me it affects both the legibility and loading speed of all web pages.  Rather than the limited, often wizzy add-ons now permitted, FF might focus on making pages legible and at least giving us the choice.  Either a settings change or allow an add-on (there are several) to manage this.  Not a problem in the desktop version;  only FF Android.  It has gotten so bad, I have switched to Kiwi as a browser which allows full customization.  But I would far prefer to use FF as it is more secure and would simplify synching.  Cannot understand why this is so difficult to tweak.  Thanks

I have very recently upgraded to Version 89.0 (Windows 10) and I can't help but wonder why some key characteristics have been changed for the worse. The display format for the Bookmarks list is now spaced so large that my Bookmarks no longer fit on a single screen, and I can find no adjustment available to users. Also, the new tab screen no longer shows the image of the page, making the display less useful. What was broken in these features that Mozilla found a need to "fix" them? Is there anything a user can do to "undo" these changes?

For starters, I want to type my search in the larger, lower search bar, but more often than not, what I'm typing shows up in the smaller search bar that is higher up on the page and not on the bar where I'm typing. That is annoying.

But even more annoying: whenever I start to type what I want to look for, a drop-down menu appears with lots of suggestions for me, and those suggestions hide the lower search bar. As soon as I type one letter, the drop-down menu appears with lots of guesses about what I want. I don't want suggestions cluttering up my page ~~ I just want to type without all of that clutter. I'd leave an added image, but it won't let me take a screen shot of what I'm talking about.

Is there any way for me to disable the drop-down menu with suggestions? I HATE IT! Just let me type what I want to find!

I am constantly reloading tabs because I need to use the TotalSuspender addon to control 40+ concurrent tabs across 8 browser windows. With this new update, the Reload Tab option in the tab context menu has changed to New Tab (which is useless to me as I need to use the + menu to access containers). How can I edit this context menu and simply remove the New Tab option?
