FFox v92 - Menu Spacing - Bug? (No, not the usual question)

FFox 92 update today. Menu spacing went to double. No shock there. Found the CSS code below for UserChrome.css and set it up.

EX.

menupopup > menuitem, menupopup > menu {
  padding-block: 4px !important;
}
:root {
  --arrowpanel-menuitem-padding: 4px 8px !important;
}

Here's the issue: I want it tighter than 4px. So, I set it down to 2px... eventually dropping it to all 0px settings.

EX:

menupopup > menuitem, menupopup > menu {
  padding-block: 0px !important;
}
:root {
  --arrowpanel-menuitem-padding: 0px 0px !important;
}

But, it doesn't get any smaller than the above 4/8px set up. Bug? Perhaps there's another CSS setting to be tweaked for V 92? I do not have any other CSS for these items elsewhere in my UserChrome file.

Why can a stupid failing script on a web-page, or even intentionally so programmed script disable the copy (and sometimes paste) functionality?

How can this be disabled/fixed?

One highlights a text (any text) on some web sites, Edit menu allows Copy, context menu allows Copy, one hits Copy, nothing happens. It's not even a page where someone wanted to "copy protect" some information.

Copy and Paste should work just as advertised since those were invented, how hard can it be to get that right? Even stupid Notepad never fails at it. And no, I don't care what the idiot who programmed a page though would be/should be best for me, I want Copy to be copy, Paste to be paste. This used to work in "original" Firefoxes even when page developers wanted to make it not work.

And yes, while on a given page Copy fails miserably, at the same time in other pages it works.

I just installed the latest Version of Firefox 101.0 for Windows 10. Then when I tried to download a pdf file from my yahoo mail I received the following message: "Problem loading page" Firefox Can’t Open This Page To protect your security, dl-mail.ymail.com will not allow Firefox to display the page if another site has embedded it. To see this page, you need to open it in a new window. Learn more… Open Site in New Window Report errors like this to help Mozilla identify and block malicious sites

So, in order to open the page I have to press "Open Site in New Window"

Please advice why happened this issue and how can be fixed.

Hello, I have wanted to move from Chrome to Firefox for some time and I finally got to try it out today. Something that has bothered me since the beginning is that right clicking when the cursor hovers over text behaves differently than I'm used to.

This is the behavior I want:

  1. User action: With the cursor over text.
  2. User action: Right click / double click if in Mac
  3. Browser action: The word that the cursor is hovering should be automatically selected and the appropriate actions (copy, select all, search…, etc.) should appear in the contextual menu.

Instead of those options in the contextual menu, the normal page options are appearing (Save Page As, View Page Source…).

Where do I change this behaviour?

Additionally, how can I make the contextual menu include the «Look Up "foo"» option as it does in Chrome (Mac)?

PS: check the names of the images; basically: Chrome; Firefox-what-I-get; Firefox-what-I-want

I am running MAC Version Catalina 10.15.7, on Firefox version 90.0, and after installing the update today, every single "like" icon on the Facebook no longer appears. the placeholder is still there, as you hover over the area, you can still click on the area, but the icons no longer appear. This happened in 89.0.2, but only some of the images for the like icons would disappear, not every single one of them.

Pressing "Ctrl+Z" in the search box no longer has all the previous searches. Sometimes if I recently used the search box and haven't navigated away from the page I was on it will remember my past few searches but if I go to do other things and then go back to the box, pressing 'Ctrl+Z' does nothing. The use of a separate search box that remembers your recent searches is a primary reason I use Firefox over other browsers. Yet this functionality seems to be broken. I am surprised that it has not gotten more outcry from other people who use the search box! If there is some setting I need to change, let me know, but I don't know why that specific feature would have changed all of a sudden so that it only works every once in a while.

With Firefox 91, I can no longer disable the hideous Proton changes to tabs. Separating tabs from their content is a really poor user interface decision. It makes it harder to tell which tab is the current tab. With Proton, the active tab is slightly brighter than the inactive tabs. For older folks and color blind folks, this makes it all but impossible to to tell which tab is active.

If you won't come to your senses and revert this bad user interface decision, then at least add an official option to disable it and go back to the old tab style that other browsers use. If you won't do that, then I will just have to use a different browser. Which makes me very sad, because aside from your bad sense in user interface design, I loved Firefox.

Я использую портативную версию Firefox. До последнего обновления всё работало хорошо. Но на этот раз я не могу использовать свой старый профиль на новом Firefox. Это делает Firefox для меня совершенно бесполезным. Я всё ещё надеюсь, что этот баг будет исправлен, и будет найден способ использовать старый профиль на новом Firefox.

Sometimes when loading a page, and the page is slow to respond, I will see a strange situation: The page is totally blank (the F12 tool does not display page content). The refresh button is gray (disabled), or sometimes although the refresh button enabled, the url textbox is "about:blank", which means I cannot actually reload the page I want to read. I have to re-navigate to the page through the link in the previous link. I'm not sure whether I got across. I hope the issue can be fixed.

I have had it with Firefox playing cop. I really have. I have a site that I visit frequently but these past two updates have now broken my ability to sign into the site at all, even in private mode. All I get is the shield and human icons with the strike-through and the error message on the user name/password field that says: This Connection Is Not Secure. Logins Entered Here Could Be Compromised. Learn More.

I've hit the escape button, tried private windows, done everything I can including resetting which was my last resort and which I hate doing, there's no more whitelist, no way to bypass anything, this is totally unacceptable that I cannot get past this. Firefox is becoming more useless to me as they try to become more and more in control of what I can and cannot do. If there is no override to this, then I have to find a different browser because it's pretty useless to use one browser for some sites and another for other sites, don't you think? So if someone has a workaround for this problem, can you please tell me what it is?

I am constantly frustrated by unresponsive pages / script warnings etc using Firefox. This never used to happen on previous builds -- I am using the latest 86.0 -- but these occur so often that I am about to say goodbye to Firefox. This does not happen when I am using Chrome and other browsers.

I have been through all of the suggested steps to deal with these unresponsive script/page issues, and none has worked.

Would appreciate any help on this, but as I say I am about to leave Firefox at this point for Chrome and other browsers.

Thanks in advance...

Hi! I'm going nuts. I have Firefox set to NOT remember sessions when I close and re-open. But every time I re-open the (latest) Firefox on my (up to date) Mac, 3 tabs reappear. It doesn't matter how often I delete history or cookies or empty caches. They are not even 3 tabs from the most recent session! They are from a week ago. And no, they are not pinned tabs!

And yes, I have reinstalled Firefox.

Any idea what I should do?

Many thanks!

Since earlier this week my Firefox browser has been turning .jar files from GitLab into .jar.zip files, which prevents them from being used properly until renamed. Attempting to download the same files on Edge or Chrome works correctly, and attempting to download any jar files from other websites (even GitHub) also works correctly. It seems that GitLab is the only website that is affected by this.

Examples of files being affected (they should be downloaded as normal .jar files): 1. https://gitlab.com/Trafalcraft/antiRedstoneClock/uploads/3b3c84814d76810f826c3803eaca1e66/antiRedstoneClock-1.4.1.jar 2. https://gitlab.com/Aristois/ui-installer/-/jobs/2505715157/artifacts/raw/packager/Aristois-Free.jar 3. https://gitlab.com/Aristois/Installer/-/jobs/2495195255/artifacts/raw/packager/free/Installer-2.0.3.jar

I'm using Firefox developer edition (102.0b3), and already tried using private mode, resetting Firefox, and reinstalling. Since I use GitLab as a main source to upload files, many users have also complained the same problem to me, in which all of the users were running Firefox. After they downloaded with a different browser, it worked for them as well.

Win10 with what was Firefox 89. I had already disabled the Proton UI on this installation, because it is horrible. Today Firefox decided to update to version 91. All of the Proton UI junk is back. I tried disabling it again, but nothing worked. Doing a web search, it appears that Mozilla has disabled the ability to turn off Proton.

I then set about to rollback the installation back to version 89. I found a Mozilla link on this, went to their ftp server and downloaded the installation files for the last version of 89. The installation went normally, but when I opened Firefox afterwards, a little box popped up saying something to the effect of "To keep your History and Bookmarks from possibly being corrupted, Firefox must create new user profile." I exited out of this and Firefox didn't start. I attempted to restart Firefox again and the same box popped up again. The only way to get past it was to click the accept button.

I did so and Firefox started. This was clearly not version 89. As the UI is junk, it took several minutes to find out that this was now the latest version of 92!!!! I'm absolutely positive that I downloaded the correct file. When I look through the update history, it doesn't even show todays version 89 installation as happening. What a piece of junk.

I then spent 20 minutes figuring out how to revert back to my user profile, not the new one that it had created for me. I then did some research on what had happened. Well it turns out that you can't actually rollback Firefox, despite what Mozilla says. For a while they have added "downgrade protection" which automatically creates the new user profile and stops your old profile from being accessed by it. So unless you want to figure out how to spend a hundred hours reconstructing bookmarks, passwords, settings, etc. it actually isn't possible to rollback Firefox. Doesn't this violate some Microsoft rules about being able to uninstall versions of software from within Windows? If you try to do this with Firefox and go back to a previous version it blows everything up.

Does anyone know how to actually rollback Firefox to a previous version, so that Proton can be disabled?

After I have started the computer and have opened the Firefox Developer Edition, there is no website content visible - everything is transparent. Links are clickable and context menu opens up, but the content is just transparent (screenshot attached).

When I close & repone the firefox, then usually on 5th to 10th attempt everything starts working until next reboot.

Firefox(Default edition v94.0) is working just fine with no problems on same machine.

When I first noticed this, version was 95.0b3. Now I'm on 95.0b12.

OS is Xubuntu 21.10 and hardware is HP ZBook Power G8 - i5-11400H, Nvida Quadro T600.

I've already tried: 1) opening on safe mode, 2) reinstalling using Ubuntu's "umake" commant line tool, 3) reinstalled by downloading it from https://download.mozilla.org/?product=firefox-devedition-latest-ssl&os=linux64&lang=en-US and copying the files, 4) opening computer using both Nvida's and Intel's built-in gpu

but nothing have worked so far - still the issue persists.


Is there anything else I should try?

Thanks!
