I found the exact thread that discusses this issue, but of course comments are closed. So this is what I need. I need the colors from the previous browser. This new one blows and I have good eyes. But I agree with everyone who said to return the colors to what we've used for the past however many years (10+?) on Firefox. Also I need:

the tab bar redesign => change floating buttons back to connected tabs

the tab bar redesign => restore lines between the inactive/background tabs the theme => restore dark background behind tabs

I need this to happen without expecting me to mess around with code. I just need this to be restored. I need a fix that isn't prefaced by "not sure how long this will work." I need to not spend anymore time on this experimenting with random "custom" colors that just aren't right, because I can't remember exactly what it used to look like. I didn't have this info in my brain because I didn't know I would need it. The new themes are crap and hard on the eyes. I need Firefox to restore the "classic" option as a simple theme one can select. ARGH.

jscher has been very helpful with my intense dislike of Version 89, but in the last few days, something changed here and I can't get back into that discussion.

I updated my upstairs PC to 89, then was absolutely horrified when I saw it. It's ugly. There is little to no differentiation between the different parts of the screen. My Bookmarks list had so much extra white space added that I had to scroll down three screens to see it all - it used to fit on one page.

You made the type smaller and the bubbles larger.

You changed the ENTIRE Options menu so it's now hard to find what I want, and some functions have been removed.

Also, your STOP POPUPS no longer works AT ALL. I am being inundated with them.

I was so angry at this terrible Facebook-like new version that I deleted FF completely, ran CCleaner and re-loaded Version 88. Of course I lost all my favorites while doing this. When I went back upstairs a few hours later, the update was re-done WITHOUT MY PERMISSION. Very sneaky.

I found out how to shut off all the Proton stuff, so I can now use FF upstairs. I see tons of "fixes" using CSS stuff, which I am not comfortable using. A browser should make these options EASY!

You say this is a "new, clean look." You didn't take into consideration that many users like the way it looked before, and don't want to re-learn an entire new program. Please add back in choices for those of us who are not IT geek coders and just need a simple, FUNCTIONING browser.

Hey all,

After recent update i noticed that amazon, news.google, gmail, olx and other websites, facing issues with the sites loading completely, it looks like the mobile version is loading, or some issues with website being loaded completely. I don't see any issue with opening those websites on chrome. Gmail is going crazy though, have to load it twice, sometimes i cannot send mails, keeping showing error.

Everyday i use firefox, but never faced any issues till date, this only after the last update, which is the dark theme as such. Any fix please?

I deplore the way the browser looks now and want the old look back... I have vision problems and am totally ignorant about computers. I finally found FF and the last version was PERFECT. I could clearly see it, knew how to use it, and LOVED it and I WANT IT BACK. SIMPLY... Because I am so ignorant, the instructions I have seen so far might have been written in a foreign language. Is there a SIMPLE way to restore the OLD LOOK and feel. Keeping all the new security and other stuff is fine...although I was fine with the way it was, but I will have to find another browser if someone cannot help me fix the image back to the way it was. Please, why do they upgrade this stuff and not leave a way to keep the old look for those of us who don't want to change? If anyone can help me...I would really appreciate it. Thank you.

Hi everyone!

When I browse the web with Firefox, it happens that the system becomes completely unresponsive. Some web pages seems to make Firefox using a lot of RAM and write a lot on the hard drive. I cannot actually say much more, because it not even possible to login in a console. The system is too slow and the console login times out... Firefox (or Web Content) writes wildly on the hard drive.

I used the Firefox provided by my Linux distribution (Linux Mint), but also the one downloaded from mozilla.org. The problem seems to be less frequent for the second, but it happend nevertheless.

The point is that this problem with Firefox happens sometimes, for example, when I forget the browser open on somehow demanding webpage (like in newspapers where there are a lot of media, graphics, and so on).

A point is also that I cannot replicate this "bug". If now I browsed the same pages that made the mess, nothing would probably happen.

I thought it had to do with the swap, but the system hanged both when the swap space was enabled and when it was disabled.

I saved a copy of the profile (and the cache) after the last crash, if they could be useful. The last time I had actually to force the shutdown of the computer, because there was no way to regain control over it.

Any ideas?

Thank you for your answers!

I have noticed that when I manually log in into accounts.google.com with no prior cookies in the browser and no association with a google account prior to that, it automatically logs me into sites like youtube.com, even with the strictest cookie policies (tried with Strict, custom+cross-site and custom+third-party). I do not particularly mind privacy wise since I'll log into them with the same account anyways, but as far as I understood, there should be absolutely no way this should happen. Cookies should be isolated by domain, I have uBlock Origin installed which prevents cookie sharing between domains by setting some CNAME records in subdomains (Uncloak canonical names), and afaik Firefox does not automatically read the google account cookies and share them around - if it did, that would be even more serious. So what is happening here and how can I change that? This seems to be a serious issue that I'm honestly not comfortable with out of principle since I chose the strictest settings.

With Firefox 89.0 (Win 10) suddenly only 50 downloads are possible at the same time. All other activities in other tabs / windows are frozen. With the previous version, more than 300 downloads were possible without any problems and the browser has not slowed down. I want to go back to my old version, especially since the design is more appealing.

Mit der Vorgängerversion waren ohne Probleme mehr als 300 Downloads möglich und der Browser ist nicht langsamer geworden. Ich möchte meine alte Version zurück zumal das Design ansprechender ist.

With FF open to a banking site, Excel and other apps (2nd FF instance) will not accept alpha/numeric keyboard input. Arrow keys and enter key still work. Logged out from bank, close the FF window, bring up new tab (Goggle) and type "123" in search bar, then Excel works okay. Also works if I use Edge to get to my bank accounts.

Work around #1: save bank page on desktop, close the on-line page, and open it from desktop. Work around #2: Use Edge.

Added info: problem is not consistent. Sometimes things work okay, sometimes not.

OS: Windows 7 Firefox Version: Current, no extensions or add-ons active

This problem started out of the blue a month or two ago. When I type in the search box or any input field on a web page, more often than not, the browser will go into "Not Responding" mode and I have to exit and restart. At the same time this started, the same problem also started happening when a pop-up window would appear (perhaps only those with input fields?). The problem with input fields seems to happen most often when they are trying to auto-complete what I am typing, but turning this off in the search box did not end the problem there, just made it happen a little less often.

I tried doing a 'refresh' on Firefox, that had no effect.

If I run Firefox in troubleshooting mode, the problem does not occur.

I do not think this is a virus problem; I have Kaspersky running, and I haven't seen any other telltale signs.

This is not the worst issue in the world, but I can't work it out.

I use Multi-Account Containers and have the facebook Container and Google Container extensions.

In Settings >> General >> Container Tabs...Settings, I can choose the colour and the icon that represents each container.

That works fine within a session, but when I restart, the Facebook container has always reverted back to the fence icon, in black. If I change the icon to something else, and/or change it to a different colour, it's ignored when I close and restart.

None of the other containers (Personal, Shopping, Banking, Work, Google) have this problem - I can set whatever icon and colour for them I like, and it's retained when I restart Firefox.

Any ideas?
