Hi

I was able to turn off the Proton UI stuff previously via the about:config "proton" options, but in FF 91 that just got pushed via updates, this no longer seems to work.

Does anyone know if there are new switches to update in about:config in FF91 to disable this stuff or have other suggestions please?

Many thanks.

On Monday (8/16/2021) I started Firefox and all PDF links opened in its viewer. This was strange since I always have these files set to open in a third party viewer since I have to view the files while using Firefox to search related data. I checked the settings and they were set properly. I tried changing the settings to other options as well as other readers and none of them work.

I went on line and tried ever suggestion that I could find without any luck. I have reset Firefox to it original state and the issue continues.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Please provide an option to revert to the smaller line spacing and the original smaller top window title vertical size. For those of us using smaller displays the new sizes in Firefox make it much less friendly, and inconsistent with other software on the same PC. Thanks!

I tried accessing the site using Chrome and Edge - no problems with those browsers. Firefox was working with Amazon last night, so this is something that happened with the recent update.

One time, when using MAC I accidentally set a website to always open in a different container. Now any time I attempt to launch this website, I receive the MAC prompt "Open this site in your assigned container?", where I have two options: Open in Current Container and Open in Assigned Container. There is also a checkbox labeled "Remember my decision for this site", however even if I tick this checkbox and select Open in Current Container, I still get this same prompt every subsequent time I visit this website.

Ich weiß nicht warum Mozillia uns unbedingt Proton aufzwingen möchte, warum kann man nicht 2 gleisig fahren. Ich finde diese Oberfläche sehr störend. Nach dem update auf Firefox 91 ist der Abstand zwischen den Lesezeichen wieder vergrößert, obwoh ich alle Einstellungmit Proton in der config deaktiviert habe.

Gibt es eine Möglichkeit, die auch für "nichtprogrammierer" umzusetzen ist, den "alten Zustand" wieder herzustellen oder zwingt uns Mozilla nach jahrerlanger zufriedenheit einen neuen Browser zu suchen?

Danke für die Hilfe

I needed to have Windows 10 wiped and reinstalled from my laptop, and the guy who did it cloned my files to save everything. I saw instructions on another post on how to find the bookmarks file under Profile, but it didn't do anything after confirming that it would wipe out all current bookmarks. What am I doing wrong?

I've just upgraded to Firefox 91.0.2 (64 bit) on a Windows 10 system. Clicking on the Firefox icon on my toolbar indicates that the program is active, but no window appears. Trying to close the program by right-clicking doesn't do anything and I have to use the Task Manager to get rid of it. The attached screenshot shows what happens when I hover the cursor over the taskbar icon.

Clicking on a URL sent me in an email also does the same.

Oddly, right-clicking and selecting 'open new window' works, so I can still sort of function, but it's a real pain.

I have only one monitor, so it's not a dual-monitor issue.

A few months ago Firefox decided to double space all the items in menus. Reading through the forums many people didn't like this because of the amount of space that the menus now take up. Fortunately there was a work around, by setting 'browser.proton.contextmenus.enabled to false they returned to normal

This morning Firefox my got upgraded and the double spacing problem is back again. However there appears to be a bug with the setting and the menus won't return to normal. I'm now stuck with stupidly large menus that won't fit on the screen and lots of painful scrolling.

Does anybody have an alternative workaround until this is fixed?

I have used mozilla firefox for over 5 years. It have always had a GOOGLE search bar in the center of the screen and it has worked correctly - now whenever i try to input words into the GOOGLE search bar located in the center of the screen it defaults and jumps to the URL/Web Address Bar at the near top off the screen - this jump to the address bar is VERY distracting and inconvenient! How can I revert to using ONLY the search bar in the center of the screen? I have worked on this for two solid days and none of the recommended fixes have worked. I have uninstalled and reinstalled Google and Firefox numerous times but now it always defaults any Google search to the address bar! THIS MUST STOP!!! Thanks!!! Sincerely!!!
