Please, PLEASE put back the space between the tabs in the Proton version of Firefox. As a web designer, I don't understand how any designer on your staff or any supervisor would okay what looks like a seamless tab bar. The UX is horrible.

I've temporarily changed the about:config to mimic Photon. But I understand you are going to get rid of that ability in the about:config file.

Why do you tweak a decent UI into an unusable one? This is becoming an epidemic. Similar things happen on Facebook and with Photoshop (where "upgrades" make parts of the application unusable—that is, they no longer work).

How do I revert to Firefox 88? The changes to the tool bars conflicts with my extremely common visual issues.

I need the previous Firefox tool bar appearance to see what is there. I'm thinking Revert to Firefox 88, or return to the Ff 88 appearance of everything above my site display. Ff 89's lack of tab outlines and type face contrast with the background now make me have to squint and lean far closer to the monitor than with Ff 88. I'm actually thinking of changing browsers to deal with this amazing lack of testing on older eyes before such a major change in visual 'ergonomics'. I'm guessing everyone working on new Ff versions is below middle age, and have zero conception of the visual issues everyone faces with age.

HI,

since the last update, my Macbook M1 firefox (89.0) will no longer play ANY video.

Amazon Prime, YouTube and Netflix. All fail with a spinning circle and a error message "please restart your device" or similar.

All sites play fine in C*rome

Any suggestions? I really don't want to have to use C*rome

I just installed version 89.0, and I would swear that my top bar went from one bar (containing the tabs, the address line, home button, fwd and bk arrows, etc) to 2 bars (the top bar containing the tabs and the bottom bar containing everything else). Is there a way to put everything on one bar?

New theme is absolutely not contrasting. The font merges with the background, no separators are visible between the elements, although the tabs opposite are separated from the page. And a huge number of other annoying little things. You suggest choosing a different theme, but there are the same problems and an additional annoying background pattern.

Please make it possible to return to the classic theme and stop changing the interface and familiar controls. I am shaking from every update notification, because i expect everything will break again.

I also advise you to read reviews on news sites dedicated to this update. Many people unhappy with these changes.

I found a partial solution (about: config -> browser.proton.enabled -> FALSE ) problem, but as it became known, it will soon stop working.

I understand that FireFox a free product and I would shut up, but it upsets me that the tool that I have been using almost all my life has gone bad. And second, and even worse, the Internet is increasingly dominated by Chrome, remaining without competition.

Whoever thought Firefox 89 was a good idea is not someone with whom I agree. 89 is awful - I disregarded the update notice for days but then got sick of the reminder. BAD idea on my part. Is there any way to get rid of the topmost "tab" - they ARE NOT tabs - bar? I really liked the previous tabs that LOOKED LIKE TABS and DID NOT TAKE UP MORE ROOM on the page. Can I go back to the previous version? This one is really bad. Like, REALLY bad. Firefox "developers" need to give an option to check out the new update before committing to it.

Firefox won't stay downloaded to my computer. I am having to download it multiple times, especially if my computer has updates.

On a separate note, when it does actually stay on my computer over night, it never keeps me signed in to my Firefox account. I have to log in to it daily to have my bookmarks and passwords.

Also, it never remembers the theme I have picked for it. I would love some advice on how to fix this.

I've read through a ton of articles, and I can't seem to find a fix.

Chrome has a really fantastic feature called "Tab Groups" - it's pretty self explanatory but it basically allows you to quickly group related sets of tabs.

This is an incredibly useful feature but it seems Firefox hasn't got anything like it.

I've tried a few of the third party add-ons such as Tree-Style-Tabs but they're all over-complicated, take up too much screen real estate or change the way tabs operate.

Is adding simple Tab Grouping functionality on the Firefox roadmap?

If not - has anyone found any good add-ons to replicate the Chrome functionality?

So I was having some trouble a few days ago with a website that automatically re-directed as soon as I landed on it to another page. So I happily went off in the settings and disable the automatic redirect. Now a week or two later I'm sitting here going I can't find the setting anymore? I can't even search for it and have absolutely no results you would think searching for "redirect" in the settings pain would bring it up. it's probably something that got buried in developer tools that I would never be able to turn off/toggle again unless I get lucky with the right extremely memorable and easily accessible incantation in the about : config because that's just all so well documented. Is it a "1" is it a "0" is it a "5" which one disabled / enabled what is the other options do?

On 84.0.2 on OSx.

Firefox will offer to save usernames and passwords, but then does not remember them in the future. Attempting to import existing data from another browser into Lockwise prompts a request to set a primary password first. Attempting to set a primary password (which is currently not set), yields the error message "Unable to change primary password."

Hello all,

I used to have this setting whereby I had an icon at the end of the address bar which I could click on to copy whichever link was current at the time. I reinstalled Firefox or something due to a problem I had and I can't seem to find that option anymore. I can't remember if it was an add-on or an option in Firefox itself as standard.

I'm using Firefox 89.0 on a Mac.

Does anybody know how I can get that icon back?

Thank you.
