Hello My desktop Firefox (iMac) did an automatic update and now I have the floaty tab redesign and I intensely dislike it. Is there a way to make the tabs look like how they did before? I am so unhappy. It's ugly and I can't tell the tabs apart very well (they have no dividing graphics). I am this close ---><--- to Time Machining myself back to the previous Firefox version. Help? Thanks Elizabeth

I have my Firefox settings to open search results links in a new tab. I can get this to happen with Google, but I *rarely* use it. I prefer Bing. My settings are for links to open in a new tab, and they won't do that with Bing.

I have read what others have suggested about fixing this problem. I made changes in about:config with no result. I opened in Firefox safe mode and didn't find anything on my own. Will check out any tips though.

This has only recently become an issue. I know that Ads have always opened in the same tab and I do not care to right-click or use ctrl.

Another issue I suddenly had with the latest new design update was that when I used the Bing search box, it started switching to an address bar search. I was able to fix that.

Anyone know a sure cure?

I don't now what happened but my tab bar has a different look to it now. Possible a Firefox update changed the look of my tab bar, but nonetheless, it is now harder to see the tab bar. It seems to have a more transparency look to it making it harder to see the tabs. How do I change the tab bar look to what it used to look like, which was easier to see? Can someone help? Thank you.

How do I restore a previous session after splitting firefox in 2 windows

I use the session restore option, but when I open a new firefox window (by detaching a tab) and forget to close last the window with most tabs, the restored session is the single tab that I detached. This has happened a couple of times, but I can't remember exactly how to solve it, just that there was an action that would 'pop out' the previous session, like opening a new window and closing the last tab there. any tips?

Hello,

I was wondering if there is any way to increase the font size of the tabs and the bookmarks bar in Firefox. I'm using macOS Catalina, and the text appears tiny, making it very difficult to read.

I have found the following suggested fixes, but neither provides a satisfactory solution:

Theme Font & Size Changer: appears to have lost most of its functionality in the newer versions of Firefox.

'Changing the layout.css.devPixelsPerPx value in about:config: this does indeed scale the size of the tab and bookmarks text, however, I'm using two screens, and the scaling does not match between the two. When the font appears big enough on my attached screen, weirdly the font on my laptop screen becomes even smaller than at the default -1 value. And if I increased it to the right size on my laptop screen, it become ginormous on my attached screen (see attached screen shots).

Any solution to save my poor eyes from straining would be appreciated,

Best wishes,

Veronika

So, I know this isn't the most important question to ask out there, but... so, up until recently, the tab history when you left-click the back button, would show several columns of history, but now.. it's only one. And I used the function a lot before, but now it's... kinda not serving the purpose I used it for, so is there any way to revert it? In the settings or something. Sorry, thank you.

Whenever I try opening only Firefox incognito mode by right clicking on the app in taskbar and choosing new private window, normal Firefox window also opens along with it even though I don't want it to open. Please fix this issue and let us only use the private mode at a time and don't allow the normal mode window to open along with it.

Thanking you in anticipation!

The previous version of firefox would show which tab was making noise with a little megaphone symbol. But the June 2021 update changed that function so the symbol only appears when you hover the pointer over the tab. Not very convenient or useful. I was wondering if there was a setting or add on that would restore the previous noisy tab identification function.

I recently updated to Firefox 89.0. I like the new look and feel, but ever since updating, I no longer see the little red notification emblem on the tab in Firefox when I have unread messages.

I've attached an image showing the tab in Firefox 89.0 (Left side) and the same Discord session in Firefox 88.0.1 (Right side). In Firefox 88.0.1, the notification emblem shows on the tab, but in FF 89.0, it doesn't.

Does anyone know if this is this a bug or some kind of option that I can change in FF 89.0?

Thanks for any help or advice anyone has to offer!
