How do I get rid of this crap? I either select a crappy system theme and everything turns a blinding white, or go back to the theme I usually use where everything suddenly is dark. How do I remove darkmode while retaining my favorite theme? I don't want dark mode and I certainly do not want to be blinded either. There must be a useless setting added to the about:config that I can disable.

Thank you.

Prior to updating, when I typed a question from the Firefox homepage in the search box in the middle of the page, my search parameters would appear there where it would be easy to see. Now, every time I type anything in a search box, it jumps to the address bar, causing me to have to shift my line of sight to the top left of my screen rather than the center of the screen. Not to mention the text on the address bar is several orders of magnitude smaller than the test on the web pages search bar. So how to I shut this behavior down? If I click in a search box I expect my text to appear in that search box, NOT in the address bar.

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.

Hello,

After installing some random extension (pinned tab whats app or something like that), my firefox starts to act weird. I have big stripe/band on top of barely every website I use (as seen on attached screenshots).

I uninstalled the extension right away but it doesn't fix the issue. So I uninstalled entirely firefox, deleted what I found as my use profile folder, made a fresh install, but the issue is still here.

It disappear in troubleshooting mode, but in normal mode even with no extension the bug is still here.

When displaying developer tools, the page is now totally blank on some site, normal on others.

I'm on Elementary Os 5.1 (ubuntu 18.04).

Many thanks in advance for your help !

Since the upgrade I have not been able to access sites I have used in Firefox for years. All the sites are at shockwave.com, such as https://www.shockwave.com/gamelanding/the-daily-snoop-a-hidden-object-game.jsp. I contacted Shockwave but they have no idea, just telling me to disable my add-ons such as ad blockers. That's no solution because (1) I've always had the same add-ons enabled and (2) the same add-ons do not affect MS Edge.

I attached a screen shot of the page I now see in Firefox and what it should look like.

Does anyone have a suggestion to resolve this issue within Firefox?

Thanks.

HERE IS THE ANSWER Here is the answer to get TABS BELOW with Firefox V90 . . copy all of this code below the broken line into your - userChrome.css - file and save it. You can modify the 45px in this line if you wish to get an appropriate height . . just experiment with different numbers till you get it right --menubar-height: 45px; /*30px|41px=11px; caption buttons on menubar*/

Also to make the tabs wider or narrower, modify the line which is coded width: 50vw !important;

Finally you must enable - css - in Firefox, by typing about:config into your address bar, and search for toolkit. When all the toolkit options appear change the one which says toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.stylesheets to TRUE by click the icon in the right hand column. Than close Firefox and reopen, and check how it looks This will enable your - css - file to be read, and interpreted and accepted by the Firefox browser.

Today I updated my Firefox Developer Edition to version 89.0b2 and now I just can not look at this browser anymore, "Inspired new tab design" is taking too much space and now became largest and at the same time least information-dense panel in my entire desktop! I searched around the web for a bit in hopes that I will find a theme or an add-on that will revert this particular change but no luck. I really want to revert to old UI look (at least tabs bar), there should be default theme or option to get back to old style. After some investigation I found userChrome.css but don't really want to install it (maybe this is actually the way of doing this kind of styling). Please help me revert UI design to old one.
