Hello,

I just installed the new update. The new tab design is totally confusing/unclear to me. Especially the fact that the new tabs don't have a "seperator-line" to the next tab. Thats totally disturbing to me. It's really difficult for me to keep the overview about my normally around 60 tabs now. Is there an option to switch back to the old tabs look and feel? Are there other options to customize the look of the tab bar?

Thanks in advance and Greetz!

Why do you fix things that ain't broke. You want to change things advise those that want change of necessary ACTIONS TO ACCEPT CHANGE. I've had to waste precious time getting to this screen to enter message. Screen real estate is a premium. Why blow it up with white space. Come on! Please return to previous screen formats.

It's been quite awhile since you've made unnecessary display format changes. Please return it to the way it was.

Hello,

This has been going on for few months and it doesn't seem to be going away (in fact, I see more complaints about similar issue around the net), so here it goes.

Up until Firefox 87 with Widevine 4.10.1582.2 I had no problems with Netflix. Then Firefox 88 with Widevine 4.10.2209.1 was released and every time I watch an episode of a show the screen freezes for several seconds while sound goes on. If you rewind and reach that point again, it doesn't happen again. However it's inredibly annoying when it happens at the climax of every episode.

I stopped updating Firefox beyond 87, but then Widevine 4.10.1582.2 stopped being supported and had to update or not being able to watch Netflix at all. While I can still watch movies, I had to start using Edge to watch tv shows (and I really don't want to do that).

I haven't noticed it happening on a movie, possibly because the last few minutes are credits which I don't watch. But there's a possibility it only happens on episodes. This is only my suspicion, but it happens right after the episode finishes buffering, so maybe it has something do with that or maybe some process with next episode is beginning while the current one is still being watched.

I'm not exactly sure it's something you can fix on your end since it seems to be involving Widevine, but would be great if something could be done.

Ghostery has started a totally annoying adblocking stats popup in the lower right corner of the screen. A previous thread here stated, Contact the developers. There is no way to do that that I could find. For now I have deleted Ghostery and and am happy to leave it deleted. But I would also be OK with having it back because I have an account.

Any ideas on this ?

Firefox 92.0 : So now comes another "improvement" from the folks behind a program . . . NOT!

USED TO BE: Click on a Bookmark in the Bookmarks Toolbar and the roll-down would be single lines -- meaning a person could control the number of links in that Bookmark so the roll-down would go to the bottom of the screen. Simple to read, no extra activity needed.

NOW IN THE "NEW & IMPROVED" VERSION: Click on a Bookmark in the Bookmarks Toolbar and the roll-down is 1.5 or 2.0 spacing -- meaning a person is now required to futz with the roll-down since it goes way past the bottom of the screen. A waste of time to search, since one is required to spend the extra activity to scroll down and down and down until all of the bookmarks have become visible.

VISIBLE? Ha. Part of the "NEW & IMPROVED VERSION" is that the screen font used by Firefox is that all-too-ubiquitous light gray color that can barely be read unless is blessed with exceptionally good eyesight. Some websites these days think it is So Very Hip to utilize that style of font -- but make it even lighter! Mindless Madness.

SO: How does one 1. Return the Bookmark roll-down list back to a single-line style? 2. Change the font color so that it is dark enough to be readily read?

Thank you.

I just updated Firefox to 92.0. (Windows 7 Pro, SP1, 64bit) I am visually impaired, and use one of the Windows high-contrast modes to be able to read the screen. The 92.0 update absolutely "broke" the high-contrast mode. It is now almost impossible for me to view any website... I need some sort of fix... NOW. I either need instructions to back up to the previous Firefox release or instructions to add or change something in "preferences" if that is possible.

Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site.

We can’t connect to the server at passport.

If that address is correct, here are three other things you can try:

   Try again later.
   Check your network connection.
   If you are connected but behind a firewall, check that Firefox has permission to access the Web.

Just updated to Firefox 92.0. I use a Windows high-contrast style as my eyesight is not good, and the 92.0 update has trashed this style. I am having a terrible time viewing... anything... in Firefox. I either need to revert to the previous version or make changes to Firefox preferences, if possible; to restore the high-contrast scheme.

Also noticed that changes were made to the drop-down bookmarks toolbar... the spacing between entries has now doubled, so now only half the bookmarks appear at a time. The previous spacing was not a problem. Again, is there a way to change it back?
