Hi,

in the latest version of Firefox (updated June 2021), the home page had the icons shrink in size considerably.

I'm visually impaired, and this change had made the home page unusable. It's just too hard to see!

Is there a setting to adjust the homepage icons back to their larger size? They used to be 2-3 times the size, and really useful. The boxes the pics are in are still the same, but the icons displayed are tiny now, at least to these tired old eyes.

Thank you in advance! Tony

Your newest download has terribly confused me. I'm not a techie, but a 74 yr. old grandma. Where is the share button. I want to send/forward an e-mail to someone, but I can't find the share button. The e-mail button just has a google account or a yahoo one. I don't use either of them. I'm just terribly lost since the update.

My browser opens new links in new tabs. I want them to open new links in the same tab.

Others inquire about the same issue get a response saying:;

"Did you try it? Some sites add a target="_blank" attribute to links. Links with these attributes are supposed to open in a new window when left clicked. However, Firefox by default opens these links in a new tab in the current window. By setting browser.link.open_newwindow to 1, these links will instead open in the current tab/window."

I need step-by-step help understanding what I need to do to set the browser are suggested in the above response.

I do NOT appreciate that Mozilla now forces me to use the FireFox home page (or else literally nothing - a blank page) for my new tabs. I want to use the same custom page I have set up as my home page, but since the last update, that page only shows in a new window, not on new tabs. Is there a workaround for this? I use multiple tabs within the same window heavily, and having FireFox abruptly override a customization I have already set up and been using for years, that works best for me, is seriously pissing me off. I know there is a plugin to se new tabs, but I already have several plugins and would prefer not to add more.
