Hi,

in the latest version of Firefox (updated June 2021), the home page had the icons shrink in size considerably.

I'm visually impaired, and this change had made the home page unusable. It's just too hard to see!

Is there a setting to adjust the homepage icons back to their larger size? They used to be 2-3 times the size, and really useful. The boxes the pics are in are still the same, but the icons displayed are tiny now, at least to these tired old eyes.

Thank you in advance! Tony

Your newest download has terribly confused me. I'm not a techie, but a 74 yr. old grandma. Where is the share button. I want to send/forward an e-mail to someone, but I can't find the share button. The e-mail button just has a google account or a yahoo one. I don't use either of them. I'm just terribly lost since the update.

With the new version 89 the row height for bookmarks is way too big and now I am scrolling all over the place. I had them all perfectly spaced to show all in my full screen without scrolling. Is there an adjustment where I can go back to the previous narrower height?

I keep accidentally muting my tabs when all I want is to click on them to switch to them.

I don't want the option to mute the tabs at all. I just simply want to switch to the tab when I click on it.

How do I do that?

Hi, I'm using the latest firefox version 89.0.2. There's a large tab bar at the top. I never use tabs. Safari doesn't show the tab bar unless multiple tabs are being used. This leaves more space to show webpages. I'd like to hide the tab bar permanently or when only one page/tab is used. I guess that means the red, yellow and green mac circles in the upper left would have to be moved to the lower bar, by shifting the back and forward arrows slightly to the right, as is done on Safari.

I looked online for suggestions. chrome.css files were mentioned. But they didn't explain what those were or how to create/access them. So the guidance was not helpful to those who didn't understand those files, like me.

Can you please let me know how to hide the tab bar?

Based on all the comments I saw on threads, it seems many others think the tab bar wastes space. It would be great if Firefox preferences provided an easy option for hiding the tab bar.

Thanks, Frank

I need to reorder Firefox windows on the taskbar badly!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Also it would be useful to have custom titles. Both things should persists after PC restart. I tried couple programs, but they don't work. Devs said: position of Firefox window on the taskbar is store in Firefox and their program has no way of remembering that! Also windows get randomly shuffled each time, it is impossible to use like this. It takes me forever to find right window. It is annoying the hell out of me. How Firefox dev team doesn't fix something that basic??? This is so stupid...

Please tell me there is some solution...

Before I switch to Microsoft Edge.

Does anyone have a working solution to Firefox crashing on me every time the system file dialog opens in order for me to save something?

This is an ongoing problem and I don't seem to be the only one with this issue.

So is there a fix or should I just stop wasting my time with Firefox and move to Microsoft Edge like so many have done already?

Thanks

Whenever I execute a google search on my Firefox browser (for Mac), the links of the search results do not work, even if I choose to open in a new tab. They work just fine with my other two browsers (Chrome & Safari). This is annoying because Firefox is my preferred browser.

While trying to log into my Modem gateway I seem to have typed something into the field, and the dialog appeared asking if I wanted to update the password. My finger slipped and I accidentally told it to update, so it saved over the prior password (which I assume would have been the CORRECT password.) Now there's no way to log into my modem gateway manager. There's no recover password option. I don't want to reset the entire modem to factory settings, and thus have to set up all my network and account info from scratch. Isn't there a simple "view password history" option somewhere? It tells me WHEN the password was "updated" but I can't find a way to see WHAT the former saved password was. (Windows 10)

Within the past 3-4 week, I am constantly getting messages that FF has updates. These messages are coming randomly throughout the day and when I select "Dismiss", it updates anyway. These updates have caused me to lose bookmarks and saved log in for certain websites. This is frustrating. I cannot go through this everyday, all day. This is my work computer and my technology department cannot seem to find or figure out the issue. I no longer have the option to turn off updates. This is happening on my desktop only. No issues with the laptop. Never had issues with FF updates before; updates would occur overnight and bookmarks were never lost. WHAT GIVES?????????? I have attached screenshots. I have even uninstalled and reinstalled the browser. Cannot use Chrome, Edge or IE for the software I use for work; all modules will not work with those browsers. This is a brand new desktop; less than 6 months old.

The appearance of my bookmarks has recently changed, and I want to change it back. The individual bookmarks are spread out more, so now they take up more space on my screen and I need to scroll the list. I don't need the extra space, I find it annoying and not at all necessary. I have included images of how it looks now and (a doctored image, granted) approximately how it looked before. I've looked all over and I can't find anything on "Appearance of bookmarks".

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
