Proton is absolute c..p as an interface I need a simple about:config fix to disable this junk permanently and get back to the classic interface forever telling future Firefox updates to leave the interface alone I do not need the hassle of having to fix something that was not broken until you improved it

Firefox has been blocking more and more websites that play music or video lately. These are clearly secure. I see the "connection not secure" notice because there is supposedly a problem with the certificate. All the help tutorials from Mozilla do not work. For example, I can't listen to internet radio (example: http://radio.orange.com/radios/helpmechill). Have Windows 10, I clear the cache regularly, it is also not a problem with external security program like ESET etc.. Suggested solutions do not work, I have no option to turn off the security blocking temporarily etc.

There is a little robot in my search bar, that makes my search bar orange with a lighter orange stripe pattern. When I hover my mouse over the robot it says "this browser is under remote control". I have googled and looked everywhere for more information about this, as I am completely unaware on what it is. Could someone tell me what it is and what it does? I really just want to make sure it isn't a virus, and that I don't need to keep covering my camera anymore.

Thank you so much.

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!

Since the new fancy mozilla update, bookmarks in folders take up 2 if not 3 times as much space, making navigation in folders unnecessarily time consuming, since now you have to scroll to access bookmarks, whereas before you would have them all in one click of the folder. Any way to fix this?

2 or 3 weeks ago I allowed Firefox to update, something I don't usually do, on the promise of a better browser. Foolish me Will I ever learn ? I can honestly say I see nothing improved from the Firefox I have used for years but found one big problem. The drop down menus have been altered to double or triple spacing, admittedly easier to read but, with years of use, my menus are large and now take forever to find the address I am looking for. How do I restore single spacing in drop down menus?

Firefox Nightly cannot be found in the 'Software' store, so probably the only way to download it is by going to the website and getting a tar.bz2 file. I got that, extrated it and placed it in the/opt folder, made an application shortcut, added an icon, and now it's working like a normal app. The problem arises when it tries to auto-update. Firefox Nightly updates very frequently, sometimes more than once per day, and on windows, I used to get a notification saying that a new update is released, and if i wanted to install it. Clicking yes, Firefox would update and restart within moments, and restore all my tabs and windows seamlessly. Here on Linux, I have to manually download the new tar.bz2 file, extract it, replace it in the specified folder, and launch Firefox Nightly again, and again and again usually once per every alternate day, whenever the new update comes. Is there a solution for this? Will Firefox someday release a .deb file for easy installation and updates? My PC : Dell Optiplex 3070 OS : Zorin OS 16 Core (based on Ubuntu 20.04 LTS)

Updated to Firefox 91.0 (MacOS 10.13.6 High Sierra) ==> UI issues with fields showing no color, inappropriate color, window transparent/skeletal appearance where under-window is visible / inability to use selection buttons. Normally I could solve this by deselecting graphics acceleration but in 91.0 FFx this doesn't solve the problem. If FFx Team Members are reading: Please fix, thanks.

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?
