Is there any chance to see old GUI look again on next update? Or at least an option to revert its look to old version? Personally I don't like the new TAB buttons located on top. I think its annoying and wasting the space for exactly nothing..

A new version has been released - 89. And the user interface has changed again. And some of the changes are very annoying. I thought I would write a feedback (review). But I found out through google that the feedback page has been down since 2014.

So the question would be where can I leave feedback on one change or another?


I am not an English speaker, so I apologize if there are various errors in the text.

Some of my add-ons have disabled themselves and there is no option to enable. I found a potential solution at this thread https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1276602 but wanted to clarify what to delete in the Profile Folder. I can't continue that thread because it is too old apparently.

The help says to: Delete all extensions* fileS and compatibility.ini in the Firefox profile folder to reset the extensions registry. There is only ONE FILE starting with extensionS. That would be extensions.json

It says to delete extensions* fileS. Could someone please clarify if I'm supposed to delete: extension-preferences.json extension-settings.json extensions Folder

Thank you!

How to disable annoying pop up for update reminder FF89+

Does anyone know any way to force Firefux [Ver 89.0.2 64bit] to stop the repetitious and constantly annoying pop-up that flashes on open, restart, or randomly appears, reminding me to once again update the apparently flawed software. I just updated yesterday!!!! Can I not trust that the programmers know what they're doing and that the system can actually work as expected without the intrusive proof that they screwed up again?! This is the worst business decision to make these things interfere with my workload. Every firefuxn day there's a new update alert!!! It makes me not trust this browser...

Hi, FF 89.0b2 Developer edition now contains a "fake editable" search field at the home page (the sentence contains in the class attribute so I used it here), when one start typing in it and the letters appear in the address bar.

For me personally this is partly non-intuitive partly annoying. I never met a scenario in UI of other programs, when typing in one place (where the caret is) show actual letters at another place.

Is this feature is here to stay or are there plans to to make it customizable? I used ff home page search for ages, now I installed a new tab home page extension with manually setting www.google.com in it.

Thanks

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.

Hey,

When entering a password on some website, I have a dropdown list of all saved passwords for this website and every saved password has the "from this website" line under it. This makes the dropdown list extremely long (in terms of its height).

I would love to get rid of the sign "from this website", so that I see a more compact list of saved passwords without those useless lines "from this website".

I have already turned off the "signon.includeOtherSubdomainsInLookup" feature, all that is left to make the dropdown list of passwords look normal (just like it used to be before all the new pointless changes).

I hope more experienced firefox users can help me make my browser more user-friendly to me.

I've seen some solutions that mentioned creating userChrome and userContent files but they were outdated and I think there should be simpler solution. A friend of mine has basic Firefox version and she said she has never met with such problem.

I've tried:

  • Clearing cache and cookies
  • Creating some Chrome files
  • Disabling addons

I don't think it's Firefox Developer Edition's problem as the issue has been persistent for some time/updates now.

I would like to set the tabs to display below the address bar in Firefox 89 64bit. I believe the setting is in about:config but I can't find it. Firefox does this every so often and I wish they would just have a button to say tabs on top, or tabs below address bar.
