I am using Firefox 84.0.2 (64-bit) on Win 10 Pro and the menu font size and toolbar icons are minuscule, even on my 32" monitor.

I found a fix for this same problem in Thunderbird, but I don't see any way to make the menu fonts and toolbar icons bigger in Firefox. This has nothing to do with web sites, just the menu/bookmarks, toolbar icons, etc.

Thank you.

Hey There!

I have set photos.google.com to automatically open in a tab container called "Google."

Now I would like remove this automatic function, as i might be opening that website in different container tab, since i have a mutipule google accounts spread across different google accounts.

Is there a way to remove or unlearn the "Always Open This Tab in a Container" for a specific domain?

As far as I can tell you can only change the container the automatically opens, but you can't just unlearn it.

Any suggestions?

Maybe add a unlearn option to the menu in the attached picture?

"When a server requests your personal certificate" my preference is set to "Ask you every time" but Firefox is remembering the certificate I used last time for a site and does not allow me to select a different certificate. How can I change this please? My Firefox browser version is 84.0.2 (64 bit). Thanks

When I started firefox today, there was a new folder added to my bookmarks toolbar - "Other Bookmarks". It was never there before and I want to remove it. In the bookmarks menu itself I have the "Bookmarks Toolbar" where I put the stuff I want to access often, and "Other Bookmarks" where I put other stuff I don't need as much. I don't see a reason why the "Other Bookmarks" should take up space on the bar.

For years now Mozilla has been forcing users to add a userChrome file to get their tabs BELOW the address bar. They have also been changing the rules for doing it every so often so users have to go back and modify their userChrome.css files.

WHY doesn't the Mozilla development team wake up and make it easier for users to maintain the look and feel of their UI to match their preferences. It shouldn't require a special .css file to make this happen.

PLEASE add settings in the about:config (or better yet in the tools/options) to allow users to move the tabs below the address bar line.

ARE YOU LISTENING Mozilla??

Apparently Mozilla did an update and not it defaults to it's own printer dialog box. I hate it. There is a link to use the system print dialog box but it only works for that specific print job. I can't find a setting to force Firefox to always use the system printer dialog box. Anyone know how to fix this? It's enough to make me stop using the browser becasue thr Firefox dialog box sucks.

Firefox 84.0 Opens Extra Window when Launched via Hyperlink on macOS

I'm on an iMac running Big Sur 11.4 and Firefox 84.0. When I click on an external hyperlink (say from an email), a new Firefox window opens to my home page even though there is already a Firefox window open. There is only one tab in the new Firefox window (not two like previously reported) - the home page. This does not happen when I switch to Safari. In preferences, I have "open links in tabs instead of new windows" checked. This just started a few months ago. Also, in the example email, when i hover over the hyperlink, a little downarrow box appears to the right of the link. When I click on the down arrow, a window opens with the proper link, but it's not a Firefox window. At the top of this new window, there is a box that says "open with Safari". When I click on it, it takes me to a new Firefox window with only the home page tab. ????

I have open half a dozen or so tabs related to one subject. I would like to put them all into one "super tab", such that only the super tab shows as an open tab. Then, by clicking on that tab, it would show the tabs within it, any one or more of which could be selected. Is this possible, and if so how is it done? Perhaps there's an add-on or extension that would do this.

I have already created a multi-tab bookmark that sorta, maybe accomplishes the same thing. But it's not as convenient as what I envision as described above.

Thanks for any advice or words of wisdom.

The latest version 84.0.1 for Mac now opens a new print menu, which is terrible. How do I force it to go away and permanently default to "print using the system dialog", which "Firefox help" never heard of. I can't find any way to get rid of it. It is a hateful change to Firefox, I hate it and my sister is in tears. She hates computers anyway. Seniors can't handle these dramatic changes.

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.

For the first time after 10 years, I can no longer access my PNC bank account using Firefox V84.0.2. This problem started just this Sunday Jan 24, 2021. I am using AVG and the Defender firewall. When I try to enter my account PNC tells me that it cannot find the code and tells me to use another browser like Chrome or Internet Explorer which I don't want to do. PNC tell me to contact Firefox as, "It is not their problem." But so far I have found nothing in Firefox to solve the issue whatever is causing it. I need help as I would rather not change browsers.

I have restarted my PC, checked and restarted AVG, checked the troubleshooting program, and reinstalled Firefox, but nothing seems to correct the problem. So where do I go from here?
