The latest update to Firefox trashed creating Bookmarks!!!

Instead of given an option on where to file a new bookmark -- as it had for years -- it places in the last location selected and closes the dialogue box.

To fix things require Editing the Bookmark to save a new Bookmark where desired.

Update prior to this one created problems with background colors and spacing's, now another update trashes to Bookmark function...

Is someone from Google of Microsoft trashing Firefox intentionally?... or is just someone who doesn't know what they are doing or care?

Before the update, my bookmarks toolbox was permanently open on the left side of the screen. That was a perfect setup for me, as I use a lot of bookmarklets for time saving on sites I'm on frequently. Since the update, all I have at the top of the screen is Import bookmarks and Most Visited (top left) and Other Bookmarks (top right). I can open Other Bookmarks, and my bookmarklets are there, but clicking one closes the Other Bookmarks folder each and every time. This renders them useless for my purpose. Is there a way to reopen, and KEEP open, my toolbox? I've tried clicking the Keep Open option and selecting done, but that doesn't do what I'm wanting it to do.

When I use firefox on my main display (1920x1080 144h 16:9) in full screen there is a noticeable white line in the bottom, not using full screen fixes it, but a pain in the ass to resize it all the time. I tried using the browser on my secondary smaller display (1920x1080 60h 16:9) and there is no white line. This seems to be a bug, how do i fix it?

hello, in the previous versions of Firefox, it was possible to send an article just by clicking on the three small dots in the address bar, I don't find this possibility to send an article and its url to someone by email, almost with a single click. Is there another way to access this feature that was very interesting? thanks !

Having used Firefox for a decade or more, I have relied on the Restore Previous Session option to open my Firefox and display the same tabs and screens as were displayed when Firefox was closed. That no longer works. You can see in the screenshot below that the option check box is ticked.

This is a fairly recent phenomenon; however, I cannot say for certain when it started. I think it was when the last ver. 88nnn or the first ver 89 were released and installed.

What, if anything, can I do to return Firefox to Restoring Previous Session?

I intentionally set my browser so that I can search from the search box in the center of this page. However, when I start typing in that box I get all kinds of stuff from the address bar blocking the box and what I'm typing. I don't want to search from the address bar, I want to use that search box. How do I get this feature back?

Before, all I had to do was uncheck the box in the second screen shot but that no longer seems to work. What's the new trick or why have the search box if you can't search from it?

Also, after a search, my links always opened in a new tab. That no longer seems to be working that way. I prefer my links open in a new tab in case I want to look at other results while keeping that tab available.

Previously I used to use "Forget This Website" from the History panel to quickly clear the history of a specific website. But it was not deleting it's saved passwords. Now I realize, that when I Forget a Website, it actually does delete the saved passwords too. I am confused now. Was this behavior always like this? can it be that because I have Sync on several devices, the deleted password gets restored somehow? I would like to be able to forget a website without loosing it's login details...
