I am starting a new thread and repeating what I had written in the old thread which had too many responses to follow coherently.

I am not sure what td47 means as I don't have this issue as I only use DuckDuckGo which is there when open a new tab.

What want to know how you get the icons in the header of the screen to be "seeable". I believe with my header I always had white print which is now nearly invisible. Not only that but all the icons up there shrank and became outlines only instead of solid objects! I have cats batik_01 theme. It seems all the themes I have ever used had write print but I got by ok til now. Is it that I have to have a lighter toned theme in order to see everything up there again or what?

I'd take a screenshot but you can't of the header/or I don't know how to do this.

It asked me if I wanted to enable some software artificial intelligence see everything know everything help with everything feature I clicked learn more then could not go back to question page. I DO NOT WANT TO grant such permission, I have looked thru "Malware's" settings and cannot find it. Iit starts, I believe, with the letters "Ge" and is one word, (Gestation?...dont know). Firefox was supposed to have a problem with it and warn me but I rebooted and Firefox said nothing. How do I find this feature in "malware the app" and disable-kill it? I never authorized it but I did not have a chance to say no eithersay no either. Signed: Freaked out

Since Firefox is minimized to half the screen I can't access the addons I need b/c this stupid thing won't stay on the top option. It's VERY annoying.

Every solution which I have found for Firefox 89 "Proton" so far which moves the Tabs Bar below the Navigation Bar (AKA "address bar"), with the Menu Bar above it, does NOT move the Tabs Bar below the Bookmarks Bar. The Bookmarks Bar appears to be overwritten and blank, and occupies space below the Menu Bar, Navigation Bar, and Tabs Bar. This empty space separates the three bars which are implemented and the content of the currently-selected tab below it.

Currently, my userChrome.css file is a copy posted by Corel-10 (?): __________________________________________________________________________________________________

Evidently, the text editor for this website does several things to the above original text that, frankly, seem unnecessary and undesirable. The .CSS file is just an unformatted text file, so what is the problem with simply copying its contents and pasting it in to the body of this post?

Which is also to say that I do NOT have a clue as to what any line in the file is meant to do, what effect it has, why it is even in the file at all, or why it is written in the way that it is. So DO NOT tell me that I "CAN" create a Cascading Style Sheet on my own when I cannot even modify one that has been provided.

On the face of it, something is missing from the above CSS text. What change needs to be made to the above content so that the Bookmark Bar will appear between the Navigation Bar and the Tabs Bar??

Thank-you very much for your time and attention to this request for assistance.

Hi, I'm looking for assistance in removing/restyling the large line spacing between bookmark items added in release 89.0. Operating system is Windows 10. I've tried the workaround from another forum adding a userChrome.css file to the chrome folder in my user profiles folder with the following code:

/*** Tighten up drop-down/context/popup menu spacing ***/

menupopup > menuitem, menupopup > menu {

 padding-block: 4px !important;

}

root {
 --arrowpanel-menuitem-padding: 4px 8px !important;

}

This had no effect.

Any help would be appreciated. The added padding is not helpful, but makes for unnecessary scrolling to locate bookmarks.

Thank you! :)

Hello,

I keep getting Microsoft Windows Message telling me Firefox is running unnecessarily in the background. this is causing the battery to drain faster than normal. I kill it in the task manager but, it restarts a few seconds later.

Windows shows Firefox starts running in the background when windows starts. its running 89% in the background, my use is only 10% there is another 1% of unknown use. This background use of Firefox is also using 58% of the CPU causing other apps and programs, games I'm running to lag hang or stop.

I have uninstalled Firefox and used a cleaner to remove all leftover files, folders and registry keys then, rebooted, ran the cleaner again then, rebooted again then, reinstalled Firefox using a fresh install file. It's still running in the background.

I need to know how to stop Firefox from starting up and running in the background.

I even tried disabling Firefox updater and Firefox maintenance in the boot menu, that didn't stop Firefox from running in the background; doing that did lower the CPU use by Firefox 10%

Thank You

Firefox 89 introduced super-extra-duper fatty bold fonts. Fatter than the Futura bold fonts. I want to get rid of this uglyfaced font that is hardly readable on non-retina screens.

Tried to lower the level of [ layout.css.font-visibility.level ] from default 3 to 1 ... doesn't do anything.

Do the Mozillians really believe that every FF user has a Retina type screen before their eyes ? With the 20/20 vision of Superman ? What were the devs thinking ???

Dear Community,

I would like to download this extension: https://addons.mozilla.org/pl/firefox/addon/adblock-plus/ I would like to know how it works. If I will install this extension my firefox will be check hashsum for the files of this extension automatically? Or maybe public key of the organization/company who created Adblock Plus extension? How it is work? Can you tell me? I hope that people from Mozilla now read this and can answer for my question. This is very important for me.

Next question is to Adblock Plus extension. I can read this information: "This add-on is not actively monitored for security by Mozilla. Make sure you trust it before installing" so my question is why Mozilla don't recommended this extension? This extension now use 6,678,297 people so this is huge count. It is possible that this extension is not safe and these people now use malicious software? Why on dedicated website for this extension I can't see company name? Why this company is not verified by Mozilla? So my sugestion for people from Mozilla is to change this and check this extension or maybe add some information on website for this extension.

So I should install this extension? My friend use this on Google Chrome and he recommended me this software but I don't know if this is exatcly the same version. Maybe Chrome has verified Adblock Plus software and this is safe but Mozilla didn't verified this and this can be dangerous software because this can be not exactly the same version?

Next question is to adblocker. Why Mozilla can't make their own software to block all annoying ads and due to fight with malware? Example Opera browser have own buil-in adblocker. Why firefox can't do this? Maybe people from Mozilla should do this? This can be helpful because if this can be happen I will be not install any 3rd party software for firefox anymore and I will be safe. Maybe I can send somehow this suggestion to people from Firefox?

I hope that you can help me.

Yours faithfully, Peter

My google searching is leaving me at a loss here. I did something and the taskbar at the bottom of the web browser is now covered by the browser. Not the bar at the top, the bar at the bottom that has whatever other programs you're running listed in multiple tabs. Every single damn search is leading to how to mess with the task/toolbar at the top of the freakin page. I can make it reappear if I press the windows button or open another program, but while in Firefox it's not visible. The top taskbar, bookmarks, and all are still there so it's not in full page mode. I know the fix is probably ctrl and some other button somewhere but what?
