This just started occurring on my PC when I use Firefox: why is the background of the address bar orange/yellow with diagonal stripes and there is a robot at the start of the web address? I'm concerned it may be a virus or the web browser is being remotely monitored.

Please refer to the attached image. Thank you,

This is my second posting of this problem. When I open a document through a web site, I do not see any text in it. If I open web mail in Spectrum I get strange symbols on the top menu bar. None of these issues are evident in Chrome. I have made sure to update to the latest version of Firefox available, 92.0.1. This has no effect.

I have vision difficulties and zooming in the the page does not help. I would either like to go back to the previous update, or a fix that would enable the icon shortcuts to remain where the color and words spread across each block

Now I am not able to send a new email. It always assumes an ongoing conversation, I do not want that at all. My email provider is WOW, they seem to be changed also. What I miss most is that when I enter a name the email address no longer appears. That ruins it totally. That is/was the very best email function but now it is gone.

I use that address to start a new conversation with a friend, and now that function is no longer found.. When I open an email the sender address is not shown, I need that address always. The sender address is vital, it is how I report scams, but more important it is how I can send a new email to the sender, I do not always want to do a reply. The size of the email is not shown, that is how I detect spam and hidden malware.

Has Mozilla been taken over by microsoft? That is what this change looks like. (Sorry, I know that sounds rather nasty, but it looks that way)

I use several different computers but I am the only user, I have not yet tried the other computers to see if the old version is still available. So far this computer is the only one updated. I need to assure that no automatic updates ever are done, EVER!!!

How can I change back to version 91.0.2 from this last update. I do not like the way that favorite tabs are presented, too much space between, not helpful. I like to be able to look at my entire saved entries, not scrolling thru because they are so far apart.

The "Compact" option under the "Density" selection for the "Title Bar" in "More Tools/Customize Toolbar" should be reinstated. The reason provided, that the selection was too difficult to find, doesn't warrant removal. Rather it indicates that the selection should be made easier to find. Further, there should be a general mechanism that makes ALL bars at the top of the page easier to resize. I believe that for most people, smaller is better because it provides more space for the page content, especially important as screen sizes shrink.

Since the last two updates of 92.0 and 92.01, there is a major lag issue with my bookmark list. When you hover the cursor over a particular folder or link, it takes forever for it to be highlighted. In addition, the favicon associated with any particular link takes forever to populate. The bookmarks worked perfect prior to version 92.0. Being that I am a WIN 7 user, it would appear that whatever the developers did beginning with 92.0, had great affect to WIN 7 users, which implies that maybe other WIN 7 users may also be having the identical issues with their bookmarks. The developers should fix this issue ASAP in the next update. There is no excuse for this issue to be occurring.

How do I permanently delete specific bookmark restore dates from Firefox 92.0, 64 bit? I am running Windows 7 pro. Older versions of Firefox gave me a delete option. Not anymore. I cannot eliminate specific restore bookmarks dates from the restore option. How do I do it? If necessary, I will uninstall Firefox completely. Thank You.

Firefox 92.0 breaks high-contrast mode - can't read screen!

Just updated to Firefox 92.0. I use a Windows high-contrast style as my eyesight is not good, and the 92.0 update has trashed this style. I am having a terrible time viewing... anything... in Firefox. I either need to revert to the previous version or make changes to Firefox preferences, if possible; to restore the high-contrast scheme.

Also noticed that changes were made to the drop-down bookmarks toolbar... the spacing between entries has now doubled, so now only half the bookmarks appear at a time. The previous spacing was not a problem. Again, is there a way to change it back?

Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site.

We can’t connect to the server at passport.

If that address is correct, here are three other things you can try:

   Try again later.
   Check your network connection.
   If you are connected but behind a firewall, check that Firefox has permission to access the Web.

I have three devices, a desk top, a laptop and an iPad. The desktop is running a very outdated version of Firefox which means it is not compatable just to update it. The forum tried to help me with this a while back, but it was deemed not to be possible, and the best way would have been to do a fresh new install, but there was noway to save log-ins/passwords bookmarks. My devices all have the Firefox sync and that is so far working well. My question is, if I dragged my PC's Firefox into the present by performing a fresh new install, would my synced items install ok....after invoking the Sync feature on the new install. Logic tells me this should be so, as it worked ok with the new iPad, but I know from experience that logic doesn't always come into play. (Windows7) Many thanks

I just updated Firefox to 92.0. (Windows 7 Pro, SP1, 64bit) I am visually impaired, and use one of the Windows high-contrast modes to be able to read the screen. The 92.0 update absolutely "broke" the high-contrast mode. It is now almost impossible for me to view any website... I need some sort of fix... NOW. I either need instructions to back up to the previous Firefox release or instructions to add or change something in "preferences" if that is possible.
