I hate new firefox 89 looks. I can tolerate buttons. I can even tolerate ugly frameless tabs. But I will not tolerate bookmarks that are twice as fat as before. This is waste of space. Before I was able to see all my bookmarks from bookmark menu on screen. Now they are superfat and I have to scroll constantly in every sub-folder. Am I supposed to buy 4k screen now just because devs decided to make everything big like in touch-screen computers, even for mouse and keyboard users? Why is there no compact view anymore, only normal and superfat touch mode?

Is there any easy way, preference or something to restore old thin look? I googled topic and found some info about css styles but it includes too much of interfering with browser for me to do it. I want easy and permanent solution.

In most standard Windows applications, the title bar and tab colour follows the default Windows settings, e.g. (in my case) the title bar and tab colour of active application windows is blue. This is true even in Thunderbird. Since FF 89, title bar and tabs are something between white and light gray, which is extremely user-un-friendly. FF developer team should return to the previous colour scheme. Yes, I know the circumstances of free software but this is NO excuse to alienate millions of users. Developers that change fully functionable software just, well, just to CHANGE it should consider that they are doing WRONG. Could anyone tell them? I am just user, not developer and I am not willing to learn developer tools like BugZilla just for this simple guiding principle.

How do I get rid of this crap? I either select a crappy system theme and everything turns a blinding white, or go back to the theme I usually use where everything suddenly is dark. How do I remove darkmode while retaining my favorite theme? I don't want dark mode and I certainly do not want to be blinded either. There must be a useless setting added to the about:config that I can disable.

Thank you.

I've used Firefox for years, and this is, by far, the worst update to date......

the newly upgraded version of Firefox 89 is horrendous!!! How did you manage to get it approved for "universal design" to make it "disability friendly"? I find it visually unfriendly, it does not allow for the level of adaptation some of us might need to make it more visually friendly and easier to navigate

please provide instructions for those of us who prefer to go back to version 88! or make additional changes to correct version 89 to make it more user-friendly like version 88 was......please!!!!

(and lesson learned, I will stop doing "upgrade/update available" if it's going to result in the horrifically unfriendly version I'm having to deal with right now )(or else you all are really trying to push people to Chrome and/or Edge, which I assure you, is not my preference)

please fix asap!!!

I have Firefox home with a search engine as home page, but since the update to 89, when I try to type into the search box, it jumps to the address bar. This is very annoying. Can it be fixed? I do not want to use the address bar this way. I found a help that said to open the application menu and click "customize" but there is no "customize" option there. In the attached photo, I clicked in the search box to place the cursor there, but as soon as I began typing, it jumped to the address bar. This has never happened to me before in the 15 years I have used Firefox. I am a recent convert to Linux (about 1 year now) and am using Mint 19.3, Cinnamon 4.4.8, if that makes a difference.

My firefox installed a new update, 89, and now my tabs are missing, except that the active tab is floating down at the center bottom of the screen. i can still navigate with keyboard shortcuts, but i don't know how many i have open, what they are, and personally DO NOT like navigating with shortcuts if i don't have to.

why is it necessary to keep messing with tabs? weren't they just fine below the address bar back in the day? How is ruining the user experience worth whatever was even trying to be done here?

image is how my firefox looks right now

Hi, After today's update the small menu right to the website bar is missing. There was a menu that opened by clicking the 3 points. One of the options was to send the website link directly to an email address. This menu/the points are not there anymore. Where can I find this feature now? It was really helpful for my daily work.

Firefox did an update to their 89.0 version and now I can't log into any Google accounts (or any emails at all) using the Firefox browser. The reset button on my browser will quickly flicker once and nothing else happens. When I use other browsers, I am able to get into my Google accounts and other email systems that are not Firefox/gmail.

Update 89.0 changed the browser theme to something I don't like, too pale and pastel. Options to change back to what I had aren't available. The options presented are now uglier than this sick looking theme.

How do I undo 89.0 update? Pretty much looks like (from release notes on another post) 89.0 has nothing at all to do with security and it's just someone at Firefox wanting to change things just for the sake of changing things.

I hope Firefox isn't going to start doing silly things like moving the first floor to the second floor and the second floor to the first floor just because some administrator feels like it.

Hallo

Seit einigen Tage versuche ich die Suchfunktion in der Adressleiste auszuschalten.

Egal was ich mache, die Suche in der Adressleiste lässt sich nicht deaktivieren.

Wenn ich einen neuen Tab öffne, dann habe ich da ein Suchfeld. Möchte ich dort etwas eintippen springt, das einfach in die Adressleiste.

keyword.enabled habe ich auf false gestellt.

In den Einstellungen eine eigene Suchleiste.

Inhalte des Firefox-Startbildschirms ist eine eigene Suchleiste eingestellt. Und diese benutze ich zu 90 % und sonst die Suchleiste, aber niemals die Adressleiste.

Was kann ich tun?

Vielen Dank und Gruß Robert robert.jordan@gmx.at

Somehow, the prefers-color-scheme: dark media query does not seem to behave correctly in my browser. I am using Firefox 89.0.2 on Windows 10 21H1 and even though I have set the system theme to dark (which Firefox's System Theme adapts to, the browser UI is dark), websites which usually adapt to it (like YouTube when set to follow the device theme) do not do so and are using the light theme regardless. This issue persists even in troubleshooting mode, so it does not seem to be related to any add-on I have installed.

Testing the same websites on Firefox Nightly (91.0a1) and Developer Edition (90.0b12), they behave as expected, adapting to my system's dark theme. The same had been the case when I had been using Firefox 88 (where it did not work as expected), while websites on Nightly and Developer Edition (versions 90 and 89, respectively) did behave as expected.

Is there some fix for this issue, some setting that is supposed to be tweaked, or can a fix be expected in an upcoming release?
