In the old firefox, I had the opportunity to share websites and f. e. send them from my laptop to my stationary computer. I think there were three dots ... next to the url. But that is gone. I used that a lot for websites that I needed to print out (my laptop isn't connected to the printer's vpn).

What now? I don't think I can use pocket for that, since that saves all the websites, I just need to send them once.

I like to use the slider for scrolling though long articles and back. But many times I can't find the slider, it stays invisible until I hit it by accident. This is crazy, why can the slider in the scrollbar not be visible all the time? there is no option to deactivate the stupid rule that hides it. Please somebody an idea for a workaround or so. Different themes don't change that uncontrollable hiding behaviour that happens in Firefox, but also thunderbird Thank for helping me Ferdinand

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.

So if I try to open a .tg link to a Telegram group I want to join I get a message box asking me what application I want to open the link with. I want to change it from the current one and select Telegram as an app that I've installed from the Microsoft Store, but that doesn't appear on the list when you click browse because it's not a normally installed program in Windows. Is there a way to get access to apps installed through Microsoft Store in order to set them as default apps to open certain links/file extensions through Firefox?

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.

Hey guys, just wondering if there's a toolbar workflow similar to Chrome and Edge where we can jump between profiles. I believe there is `about:profiles` though that requires a bookmark and a few additional clicks to jump between profiles.

Perhaps the profile icon on the toolbar can have an item that shows all available profiles?

Downloaded the new version, how do I uninstall it? It is garbage. There are big spaces between the tabs and the tool bars, the favourites are so far apart that my menu is 3 pages long, and the themes were designed by a 3 year old girl with a fetish for unicorns. The only people that will use this are uneducated millenial inbreds, who spend the entire day taking selfies and looking in a mirror. It makes windows 10 look professional!! How do I roll it back? I suppose there is always google spyware - chrome as they call it.

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.

The search bar is displayed on the home page. And you can even put a cursor in it. However, as soon as you start typing something, the cursor shuffles into the address bar and the text is entered there!

This is absolutely schizoid behavior! The worst UI is simply impossible to imagine!

YES, I KNOW I CAN USE THE ADDRESS BAR AS A SEARCH BUT I DON'T WANT!

Why didn't you give users any choice? Don't you care about your own users? This is absurdly allogical behavior of the interface! What fool could have thought of such a thing ?!

Besides the fact that it is corny inconvenient, there is another extremely important disadvantage. Users suffering from cataracts put a dark theme for a reason - they otherwise see badly.

So what happens when the user has a dark theme and the start page displays a huge whitelist at the top of the screen as they enter text, what do you think? I can tell you - a user with poor eyesight is blinded for a second.

Guys, when will you start thinking before changing the browser for the worse? Seriously, Firefox has lost its entire user base over the past few years. This is very disappointing.
