Windows 10 Firefox 88/89 64-bit PC It seems there was a compact mode before version 89? I don't know if that's what I want.

I would like to have a simple selection in FF Preferences to turn OFF the Proton stuff. I am not an IT geek and I'm not comfortable doing things like changing CSS code - if I knew how to do that stuff, I'd be using Linux not Windows. Since I'm stuck with Windows, I rely on a good browser like FF v.88 to take care of the technical stuff.

Version 89 seems to be OK with Proton shut off, but I hear this is a temporary fix. I also don't know if shutting off Proton fixed the spacing nightmare in Bookmarks - I lost mine reloading v.88 and haven't had a chance to look for them. (v.89 is on the PC upstairs - this one is still on v.88.)

For some context on the anger at FF's change, those of us who use Facebook on a regular basis were forced into a horrendous update in late 2021 which barely works, and Facebook continuously changes code, fixing what isn't broken. To find that the browser we've relied on for years did the same with no warning is very upsetting.

I'd like to get a message directly to Mozilla but "Submit Feedback" has been shut down for over a week.

This happens far too often, in the course of 9 months or more frequently. What is going on Firefox? v88.0.1 Windows 10

Constant script errors that freeze whatever program I am in, regardless of the option I choose - the popup no longer gives me a WAIT or STOP IT. The box comes up that says DON'T ask me about this again.

I do not want to copy passwords, more than anything, should I create a new profile. I do not want to deal with replacing or losing the file. When I attempted to load two other profiles over the last two days, both times FF crashed. I gave up.

I am NOW in Safe Mode and without errors, and it's hard to know which app is causing the problem.

Is there a new addon that will back up Firefox these days?

Suggestions? Seriously, FF seems to be a whole lot more trouble these days than she is worth.

Thank you.

Dear Mozilla Community,

I would like to know when Firefox will be dropping Windows 7 support? I readed on some websites that Google Chrome will be dropped support for Windows 7 in 15 January 2022 year so I would like to know if there are any plans by Mozilla Developers to drop support for Windows 7?

I don't have computers with Windows 7 but my friends asked me about this because they know that I am active community member of Mozilla but I can't answer because I don't know so this is why I asked you today about this.

Yours faithfully, Piotr

Firefox constantly says "Download update", but never lets the user know when the update has been downloaded, or change the pop up message to "ready to restart"; it just keeps saying "Download update".

Please add code to let the user know when the update has been downloaded and the browser is ready to restart.

Hello. I had discovered that Firefox itself creates a so called "fork bomb" by creating a big amount of sub-processes under the main one (with I can prove thru the attached screenshoots).

Could anyone have a idea how to limit Firefox from opening so many sub-processess, with (wanting or not) are mostly causing that my system runs out of memory and stop beeing responsible to any of my inputs, with forces me to restart the system (similar thing is done by an DOS attack)

I use the Firefox 88.0.1 on Ubuntu 20.04 (64-bit)

Is there anyway to restore the format (compactness) of the Bookmark Menus without setting the Automatic Updates to not automatically update and then downloading the 88.0.1 version? I hate to not have the Automatic Updates, for obvious reasons, but don't want to use the double space of the Bookmarks even more.

I realize now if I don't immediately allow updates then my ability to start up my computer after shutting down is delayed for ... an hour or more. I don't want to allow updates, as they are becoming more frequent; i can only assume they are in league with the likes of a microsoft update which is, essentially, a fishing device to scan my computer to record my searches and communications so they might sell that information, or, for other more nefarious reasons. i HAVE stopped the ability to update from Windows - internally. Just because I'm paranoid doesn't mean "they're" not out to get me, right? Funny, huh? There's one other thing, however. I can't communicate with customers. And when I can't communicate with customers, I LOSE MONEY. ... fix it. I don't mean a patch over a patch over another patch. Maybe a line of code? Anybody there?? That's what I thought.

so for a while now, I don't know exactly but it has lasted throughout several updates, a bunch of my add-ons have decided to not show up in any menu where I can actually use them, they are listen in the actual add-ons manager and they are all enabled and up-to-date. I have un- and reinstalled all of the absentees several times over, I have done the reset thingy in the tool bar customization menu and have followed just about every piece of advice for similar issues on this forum and many others yet the majority of my add-ons still choose to feign non-existence. if it's helpful at all the culprit that alerted me to the problem was the YouTube Enhancer but it actually extends retroactively to add-ons I had installed way before that one that used to work fine. Also, and I can't say this with 100% certainty, I think at this point this problem applies to every new add-on I install, obviously I have only really seen it happen with the few add-ons I installed since this whole thing started so who knows if I'm just having bad luck picking add-ons that are shy. I have also disabled and re-enabled the add-ons that actually work and generally shifted everything around I case the 4 working add-ons are somehow blocking the all the others from being shown. I really really hope someone can help me with this because it's kind of frustrating being completely unable to actually use the majority of my add-ons :/

I just used pacman to update to the latest Firefox, but the tab crashed each time I open a new web page ( I can open settings, about:xxx and etc... ). I tried Troubleshoot Firefox crashes and it did not crash in troubleshoot mode. Then I tried extensions, themes and hardware acceleration issues to solve common Firefox problems https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-extensions-themes-to-fix-problems but non of these options solved the problem. I disabled all extensions, themes and hardware acceleration, and it reported the same error.

There were significant changes to the right-click menu from Firefox 87 to Firefox 88. See the screen shots below for the FF 87 vs 88 menus.

Is there a way to restore or customize the right-click menu options? I want to change "Copy Link" back to "Copy Link Location" and for the "a" in "Location" to be underlined. For many years, possibly decades, I have been using right click and then tapping the "A" key to load the URL part of a link into the copy/paste buffer. With FF 88 this is now the "L" key which is painful as my right hand is on the mouse and my left hand is on the left side of the keyboard. Hitting "A" is a no-look-no-brainer for me. For "L" it looks like I need to remove my left hand from the mouse, look at the keyboard, and then tap it.

Related to this is that FF 88 removes "View Image Information" from right clicking on images. I also have used this regularly.

Recently, Firefox on Windows has started to add excessive whitespace (or grayspace, I guess I should say!) around the "Show All Bookmarks" item at the bottom of the bookmarks menu, and the "Open All In Tabs" item at the bottom of the submenu for each bookmarks folder.

Is there a preference that reverts this, or does it need something in userChrome.css?
