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.

Hi to all the developers:

To take screenshoots was a great success, and it was quite agile to take snapshots with the "page actions" menu, but the last update (FF 88.0) disappeared that option.

Please return the "Take screenshoot" button" to the "page actions" menu. This seems to be an unimportant thing, but having the button on the toolbar reduces space, especially if we take into account that there are other buttons showing information. (Img1)

But the worst thing is when some web pages appear in pop-up windows that do not show any buttons. So, how can I take a screenshot if the capture button does not appear. (Img2)

Please keep in mind that there are some people that need to take several screenshots and it is faster to activate the capture and select the desired area both with the mouse.

Since the feedback page seems to be not working, I write it here with the greatest respect, to get this to the developers.

Thank you in advance.

Alternatives for Buggy "Take a Screenshot" Menu in Firefox 88

I understand that there's this help page, but a lot of times site developers right click and hotkeys disabled for security reasons and this renders me unable to take a screenshot of a website.

I've also tried to add "Take a Screenshot" button from "Customize Toolbar" option to my toolbar, but most of the time it is disabled, even on support.mozilla.org page. To enable it, I need to remove it and re-adding it again with "Customize Toolbar" option.

Is there any way to re-enable "Take a Screenshot" option in 3-Dot menu? If not, is there any sane way to keep "Take a Screenshot" enabled for the rest of my Firefox session without me needing to remove and re-add it again everytime I need to take a screenshot?

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.

I have two defined log-in users on my custom-built Windows 7 Pro desktop. On the account I use, the last entry in the Page Actions menu the "Take a Screenshot" option lo longer appears at the bottom of the menu. However, on the other account the "Take a Screenshot" option does appear? I can find nothing in the Firefox 83.0 "Options" or "Customize" menu that can affect the Page Actions menu in any way, nor can I see any apparent difference in any other option in effect between the two user accounts' settings? Any ideas on how I can get my "Take a Screenshot option back, short of uninstalling Firefox from the computer and re-installing, wiping out both users' bookmarks, add-ons, etc.? Thanks.

Hi All, I use Get Pocket - a lot! Before the last couple updates the normal bookmark icon - would click on that and there would be a link to Get Pocket list. That has now disappeared. The only way I can find to see the list, is click on the "save to pocket" icon, whereby it then saves the page I am on, although I don't want to save the page, and it also has a link to view the list. So have to click on that, then delete the page just saved. All so ridiculous. I must be missing something here. The update before this, was the same and I reverted back to an older version of Firefox. Thought would try this latest update, but no ... the pocket list link inside the bookmarks icon is not there.

How can I get to view pocket list without having to first save the page I am on, then delete it? What am I missing. I attach three images. One of how I used to use the Get Pocket list .. i.e. using the bookmark icon. Then what the book mark icon shows now .. no pocket list ... and the only way I have found to view the list, but saving a page first :) ..... Thanks for any advice.

Hello, all.

This is not a question but a pointer for those who have successfully been using userChrome.css to put the tabs where they belong, below the Bookmarks bar. :-)

If you used a userChrome.css solution such as that presented in threads like the support article "tabs on bottom release 72.0.1" (full disclosure, that is my solution), then you just need to add to the #TabsToolbar section one line:

top: var(--uc-titlebar-padding,86px);

You can play with the "86px" until you have the tabs where you like them. Depending upon my profile and other CSS options, I have to move that a few pixels up or down to get it looking just right.

When I right click on an image in Firefox, I've always been able to select "view image info". This is very helpful, but now it appears to be gone in latest Developer edition. Do others see the same. If so, why was it removed? It's still there in the regular version of Firefox.

Updated to v89 this morning. I really really dislike the theme options. Is there a way to use the previous default theme. The new ones are all difficult to read. Quite frankly, I hate the color schemes available. They decrease the visibility of text.

Hello. I have Firefox set to notify me of new updates but though I always download them I don't immediately install them. My current version is 88.0.1.

Today I downloaded what I now know to be the all-new complete revamp version. But I don't want to install it on my main PC until I've looked into a little more and perhaps tried it out on a laptop.With it in

Is there a way of removing the downloaded version? With it in place, if I restart Firefox or reboot the computer it will automatically be installed, and I don't want that to happen just yet.

I'm running Windows 7 on a desktop PC.

Many thanks.

After the Firefox upgrade to version 89, the icons disappeared from the menu. When I look at the changes page, I see that they have been specifically removed. In my case, the functionality of the Firefox menu has been severely compromised by losing those icons. So far, I’ve used those icons as a mechanism for faster navigation between different points. Because it is faster to recognize a single icon (character) than to read text. In the past, toolbar items overlapped menu items with icons. And now not. Not only that, the layout of the menu items has changed.

My suggestion would be to return the icons. And make them show / hide through settings.

SYSTEM SPECS: OS: Windows 7 System Type: 64-bit Operating System RAM: 2 GB Firefox Version: 87.0 (64-bit Installation)

I want to try the new Proton UI for Firefox. I followed all these steps: 1. Go to "about:config". 2. Search for "proton" and set the "browser.proton.enabled" from false to true. 3. Restart Firefox.

But that didn't work. Is the Proton UI no longer supported in Windows 7? Or some other problem...

Not under More Tools, either.
