I'd like to remove excessive whitespace between UI items.

How do I reduce the height of menu items, the toolbar, and the tab bar to something closer to the height of the text and icons, instead of nearly twice the needed height?… (read more)

How do I reduce the height of menu items, the toolbar, and the tab bar to something closer to the height of the text and icons, instead of nearly twice the needed height?

The title bar and menu bar are correct, as shown in the screenshots (this is the account with the most bookmarks). Both the bookmarks and history menus run into the bottom of the screen before showing a reasonable number of items, which is where the problem starts impacting productivity.

I found a discussion of a previous problem, dated 5/29/2021, but it ended with handwaving about "editing css" and "keep me posted", i.e. the problem wasn't solved. If I need to edit userchrome.css or some other related file, I'd like to know what file to edit, what lines to look for, and what to change them to.

On the Total Adblock site it gives these directions for removing the program: "Mozilla Firefox Uninstalling Adblock from your Mozilla Firefox browser is very simple and can be done within a few clicks. Go to the Extensions Page on Mozilla Firefox copy this link into the address bar of your browser:about:addons

Find Total Adblock within your plugins . Click the 3 Dots. Click Remove."

I do not know where the "extensions page" is. Nor where to find it. While I have been using personal computers for decades, I am still a complete beginner when it comes to any technical jargon. If someone would kindly give me directions in English about getting rid of this annoying extension/program? I would deeply appreciate it.

Is there no way to save tabs each time I now close my browser? I don't want to bookmark them as almost all are not to be saved. I used to close my browser and be able to reopen the save tabs when I started my browser the next time, now I can't, it's totally crippled my abilities online and what I am using my browser for and leaving me lost now.

I am trying to use the UPS click-n-ship website and continually have a problem with it accepting certain information. When trying to submit the page it empties the boxes and won't let me proceed saying it needs the fields that it just emptied, completed.

Their instructions have said to add their URL to Firefox's trusted sites. I have tried to follow the directions here:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/add-trusted-websites-your-allow-list-firefox-focus

But there is no menu to the right of the URL box. There is a menu to the far right of the bar that has "New tab", "New Window," "New Private Window," etc.

Also, the URL I am trying to allow access to is a dynamic window that usually involves a session ID and since the session has timed out, it doesn't stay on that URL. How do I add it then?

Thank you in advance for any assistance. I hope this is clear, if not, please let me know and I will try and explain further.

Thank you, Andy

Trying to submit a review on Hunterfan.com using Firefox is not possible. Despite turning off such "Privacy and Security" settings as "Permissions->Block pop-up windows" I still get the warning "Disable Ad-blocker to submit a review" and can never submit the review.

This has also happened on other web sites where I was submitting a feedback, or support request form and has necessitated using another browser to do so.

QUESTION: what security setting do I need to change when trying to submit input to such sites?
