When I was asked to update Firefox to the latest version something has changed on my menu bar and my bookmarks. First, my menu bar changed colors to a very dull gray whereas before it was either black or dark blue. Second, all my bookmark list is now double spaced which I don't like.

Is this something in the latest version and will it be corrected or give me instructions to change back to the previous look that I've described.

Thanks, BR-yat ejleche@hotmail.com

Latest update installed and lo and behold, once again Mozilla screwed it up. I now have one tab on the bottom of the page instead of many in a toolbar at the top of the page. Mozilla continues to ignore users' complaints about tab location preferences and other tab functionality and arbitrarily making decisions which for most people make no sense. This latest iteration of Firefox (89.0) is for me the last straw. I will no longer humor Mozilla by spending countless frustrating hours correcting your obvious lack of programming skills by attempting to return my browser to what it was prior to another faulty update. My patience has finally run out. Before I leave Mozilla and Firefox, one last comment. Because the Mozilla support forum relies on amateurs and volunteers to answer users questions, and since I have had trouble getting workable solutions to my problems, I tried to send feedback directly to Mozilla. That was a monumental task which I was not up to, obviously, which is why I'm here. Whatever good there is in Firefox is far out weighed by the lack of programming skills, beta testing, quality control, etc. prior to forcing out updates to it's users. Like many recent users I have decided to forego further use of the Firefox browser which is unreliable from a development team which does not seem to care. I am beginning to wonder if the continuing screw ups are being deliberately caused by embedded saboteurs from Google or Microsoft!

None of the solutions suggested allow me to revert back to the background, tool bar(s) colors I enjoyed before.

Not only does the all WHITE background hurts my eyes -- it makes using Firefox UN-ENJOYABLE!!!

Who and why was this change made to my browser?

And why can it not be undone?

I have upgraded to Firefox 89.0 (64-bit) several days ago.

The new look is interesting to say the least.

However, I am more irritated with a functional change or something.

I access Facebook via Firefox on Windows 10 PC.

Facebook reports arrival of new posts from FB friends or comments to my posts.

It used to be that these reports appeared as non-modal dialog and so I can ignore them and type in something into FB window freely.

With Firefox 89.0, I suddenly notice that these reports appear as MODAL dialog and I have to clear them before I can type anything into FB window.

Is this behavioral change intended by the developer?

Just wondering.

Should I report to bugzilla?

Hi,

Just got version 89.0 installed. And I totally don't like what happened to the tabs. They are visually disconnected from the page they belong to and transformed to some kind of buttons (at least when selected. When not slected only the caption is visible) . I cannot even imagine why such a useless change is done, but in terms of UI design this is not a good step. It makes things less clear.

I would like to have to old tabs back, but cannot find a theme which can do this.

Is there a setting with which I can set to old tabstyle back?

Thnx

The same for tab and other elements of Firefox layout?

I've used Firefox since 2001. Twenty years I've been able to customize it like I want.

A few months ago I switched from ESR to Release channel because the release version could still be tweaked to the way I like it. Huge mistake!

Version 89 totally destroyed everything I like about Firefox! I use Firefox on a large monitor from my easy-chair. I NEED compact layout. Everything is zoomed anyway. I hate the new tabs! I ESPECIALLY hate the double-spaced bookmarks! I want to continue to use a custom CSS in "chrome" folder.

I switched back to the ESR channel (FF78) and had to re-tweak my about:config settings, reinstall and tweak add-ons and load hundreds of bookmarks to get the favicons back. Unique favicons make it much easier to differentiate between sites. Generic icons suck. Major hassle!

I will stick with Firefox ESR until it too becomes unusable for me. At that point, sadly, my decades long use of Firefox will come to an end.

I include two screen grabs that illustrate how I like my set-up. Note how easy it is to tell one tab from another.

Why "fix" what ain't broke?

As others have reported, Firefox will suddenly close. There are no warnings and it doesn't freeze it just turns off.

As a WordPress web developer, I have lost hours of work due to this issue. When the browser closes, my work is lost.

I have installed the latest & greatest video driver (and the driver of everything else.) I have minimal add-ons.

I have seen several other threads and no posted solution. Should I start using another browser?

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.

Hi,

I recently had to "refresh" Firefox after internet connectivity issues (Firefox would randomly be unable to connect to the internet for several minutes at a time, many times throughout the day). A refresh seemed to take care of that connectivity issue, but it did reset everything else. I'm having issues now where Firefox is automatically logging me out of accounts that I would normally be logged into all the time. Passwords don't autofill anymore when I attempt to re-login to this accounts (even though post-refresh I have opted for Firefox to remember them).

"Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed" is currently UNchecked, and besides that, I haven't quit Firefox. I've put my computer (mac) to sleep several times but I don't quit firefox when I do this.

Any other ideas? I've used Firefox for years without a single issue but have had several things pop up over the course of the past month that are making it a bit inconvenient...

Thanks in advance-

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 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.

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.
