Two days ago (9/10/2021) I updated to version 92.0 on my laptop. When I attempt to scroll/drag through the bookmarks menu, the cursor, at normal speed, stays far ahead of the active bookmark. This "lag" is also noticeable when dragging the cursor through an active page/window. This was not the case before the update.

После обновления до версии 92.0 стал очень долго загружаться, прежде чем начинают запрашиваться и отображаться страницы проходит очень много времени, при попытке выбора закладки, курсор по ним скачет самопроизвольно, все таки продукт перед выкатом в продакшен нужно тестировать, если оперативно не выпустят обновление с исправлением этих детских косяков, придется переходить на Хром.

The setting Restore previous session, on settings, general, is marked. History is kept, and the previous tabs are on the history menu (no restore session option is available, however).

Things I tried: Started on safe mode. Deleted startup cache. Refreshed the profile. Turned off add-ons.

So far, nothing works. When I close the browser with tabs open and I open it again, it starts with my homepage only.

I have Windows 8.1 Firefox 92.0 64-bit.

Now with this latest version of Firefox, when I click on a Folder on my Bookmarks Toolbar, the bookmarks are displayed in rows that seem to be double-spaced, so I only see about half as many bookmarks as I used to before I have to scroll down. Now I spend a lot more time scrolling up and down, and I hate it.

Is there a config setting that I can change or a value in about:config that I can set that will give me my old bookmark display setting back? Thanks for any help you give.

First off, I have to create an account in order to ask a question? Yea, that in itself is enough for me to leave...

Secondly, who is the idiot that thought it would be a great idea to make the spaces for bookmarks BIGGER? I installed the latest update and it never warned me that my browser layout would become more difficult because I now have to click the down arrow to see all of my bookmarks in the folders... FIRE THAT IDIOT!

Other than that, I'll be back when you decide to keep things the way they are instead of changing things. No one wants "a new look" if we did, we'd use Google or Netscape (yea, that's right...).

Unhappy.

Can I safely delete the old browser and other Microsoft products from my computer to make more room? Can I delete Internet Explorer and so many other Microsoft products that I never use? I don't use gaming, I don't use the computer for video or movies. I use my computer for documents, pictures and to connect with my truck computer for real time information. What can I delete? I am low on resources and have other computers.

Thank you for your knowledge and time to help out!

This thread will probably be locked, but I'm going to post it anyway, so that it can be seen by other users who agree. To summarize:

1. @cor_el, you've been particularly helpful in the past, and I value your input whether or not I agree with your responses, and whether you post those responses as a user or in your official capacity as moderator. 2. Users still hate Proton--the lack of contrast and the inability to reposition pop-up windows in particular. 3. User feedback matters. 4. I will not register for a third-party app simply to give direct feedback to Mozilla. Companies need to increase their capacity to engage with customers directly. Without customers, a company spits into the wind. 5. While I am proficient at a number of technology skills, I do not have the capacity to master CSS.

I have to go into task manager to stop background processors from freezing my computer. Closing background processors in disk and memory. Sometimes there are as many as 10 background processors running but it seems to be a only a few and can't tell which one's until I figure it out. Sometimes I can by the amount of usage. I have to do this several times as I use my computer.

Firefox just updated. I went to check my email and the layout was totally different and all the messages that were in my inbox and junk folder were gone!!! As a matter of fact, ALL of my saved emails and folders are gone!!! Where did they go? How do I get them back? How do I restore the previous Outlook view? It seems as if every time I get used to a layout you change it. This is a crock!!! I save things, such as emails that are important, and I place them in folders that I have created, so I know where they are and you guys just change it and throw away my folders? How do I go back to the previous version of Firefox? Or, how do I go back to the previous version of outlook so I can get my folders, saved emails, as well as my inbox back? If you are going to do this type of thing then give us the option of retaining our emails and the look and feel that we are used to. Some of us have trouble remembering things and change is difficult!!!!

Hi. Unfortunately, after the recent update of the Mozilla Firefox application, the application usage of my system memory has increased terribly. Before the update, it used about 5-10% of memory, but now it has about 40-55%, which is really strange and problematic. Please fix this problem immediately.

A while ago there was a change in the main Firefox screen at the search data entry box. When one starts to enter search data the entry immediately jumps to the address input bar at the top and starts adding suggested sites as you type. It is a dark color and typing is in dark purple. It is hard to see and hard to edit. I much prefer the previous input method where the search input stays in the large input box in the middle of the screen and I am in control of adding and editing my search data. I have been unable to change it back. Does anyone know how?

Hi, For a couple weeks now I have been trying to sign in to AOL Mail online and after entering my username to begin the sign in and "enter" I notice a window stating something about checking to see I'm not a robot but then I get a message "Uh-Oh, We can’t sign you in right now. Please try again in a while." I don't have this same issue when I try to log in via Chrome. In fact I don't even have a Captcha there? I have tried clearing history with everything to start fresh again but it didn't make any difference. Is there a setting I somehow need to change with this new update to get it working as before?

Thank you for your time and assistance with this.
