in userChrome.css and enabling userChrome.css at about:config page. However it stopped working for me. I am currently with Firefox 85.0.

I'm not sure where to post this since it isn't a question.

I normally keep a lot of tabs open on mobile Firefox, and recently updated to a new version which changed the design of the browser drastically. One thing it changed is the open tab viewer, which now opens from a window at the bottom of the screen. The problem is that when you start to scroll your finger down (so that you can view older tabs higher up) it pulls the whole tab viewer down and away. It is so annoying to use and has no real way to open scroll immediately.

The closest thing I have found to a solution is opening the tab viewer, scrolling up (so the page goes down) so it bumps against the bottom of the page, then scroll down only while the scroll is visible. An easy solution for this is to make it require 2 fingers to close the tab viewer while over the tabs, or 1 finger when on the notch at the top.

Hi there,

Just looking for some help. I'm slowly transferring over to Firefox from Chrome but I have two issues both are with Facebook.

On my laptop if I browse through Facebook every now and again (2-3 minutes) I get a complete white out on the screen which eventually comes back. On my mobile if I look at Facebook through the Firefox browser app the picture quality isn't very good and the videos are very pixilated. So whether I look at Facebook on my Laptop or phone it has to be done via Chrome.

BTW has anyone noticed that if you look at Facebook in Chrome and Firefox you get different content?

My laptop is Windows 10 My phone is Android

Regards Steve

I use `Always ask you where to save files` when download and every time I download something they're always in different places.

The problem is if I rename the file when I forget to rename it before I press the download, Firefox says the file is missing and refuses to tell me where did I save that file. The `Open Contained Folder` is greyed out and I can't find any location related text.

How can I find where did I download my files?

And why `Open Contained Folder` has to be greyed out?

Hi, I am setting up a laptop for my wife to replace her old one. I have installed Firefox and found that although the main body text is the correct size, the text on the toolbars is very small compared to her old one. How can I increase the toolbar font size without altering the main body. Thank you, Andrew

Hi, I have recently discovered that I cannot save all images via the above route. Might this have something to do with an update? This feature is very useful when you are working with some technical sites that have images of interest. Instead of save the images one by one, or use additional unnecessary addons that may or may not work, I could select all images, point to a subfolder and say 'Open.' This has stopped working. My currecnt version is Firefox 84.0.2, 64-bit, on Linux. Any ideas/solutions on how to get this feature back would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
