I'd guess there's already a discussion regarding this, but I don't know where. Getting rid of the borders when there are multiple tabs open and turning things gray makes for a far worse browsing experience for me. Why would one string of undifferentiated text in a long line of tabs make things any easier? It does not.

I've found a helpful site that allows turning off the new theme, but a commenter advises that that option too will soon be disabled: https://www.askvg.com/tip-restore-old-classic-theme-and-ui-in-firefox-89-and-later-versions/

Is there an add-on that keeps the "classic" theme? I've googled how to provide feedback. One of those links is dead. What's the best way to make my thoughts known?

People love tech, but the older I get the more I see how it demonstrates a lack of ownership, that nothing is really yours on your devices, that what you're comfortable with is only one weekly update away.

I really dislike the look of the tabs in the newest version. A floating bubble, not connected to the page, for the active tab? And the inactive tabs are connected, but there is no separation between the tabs? Aside from uninstalling the latest version and installing a previous version, is there a way to restore the look of the previous version? Maybe an add-on? If I have to reinstall an old version I'll probably just switch over to a different browser.

Firefox Add-On need to open an open dialog from the activeTab page

Hi all,

i'm currently developing an add-on that has an import from file feature that needs to open an "Open file" dialog, now the problem is that in order to do that i had to do the following:

  • inject some javascript code in the active page as a content script
  • call the execute command from the extension to open the dialog popup (that is actually emulating a click)

I have to do it, because from an extension when a "File open" dialog appear, the extension lose the focus and it is automatically closed, and its context destroyed, so when i actually press open on the dialog, the "caller" is already gone (https://stackoverflow.com/questions/26884140/open-import-file-in-a-chrome-extension/26917671#26917671 you can refer to my stackoverflow question to get an idea of what i was doing)

This works fine in chrome (And it worked for a while on firefox) but probably in the latest months/years (not sure when it happened) it stopped working and when i press the import button nothing happens, after some investigation i found what is the problem: the "block popup" windows option enabled by default (i suppose it is enabled by default i don't remember to have never enabled it), so when i disable it, the feature resume working. What i'm wondering is if there is a way to programmatically add an exception to the popup blocker option while installing the extension, or if there is any way to avoid closing the exception popup when the "File Open" Dialog appears.

Thanks everyone

Добрый день!являюсь It специалистом отдела ГАУ МФЦ Оренбургской области, Оренбургского района.На рабочих местах наших сотрудники пользуются браузером Firefox(всегда с актуальными обновлениями).Сложилась такая ситуация , что у нас заработал новый ресурс электронной очереди,и вся проблема в том что вкладки этой очереди при простое разрывают соединение,и приходится обновлять страницы,Иногда даже это не помогает приходится ПК перезагружать.У коллег выяснил ,что в браузере Chrome данная проблема решается отключением автоматического разрывания, для это нужно перейти по ссылке chrome://flags/#intensive-wake-up-throttling

Скажите пожалуйста как по аналогии с chrome можно отключить автоматическое разрывание в Firefox?

Hello,

I updated firefox and it's now hard to tell when one tab ends and another begins when you have multiple inactive tabs next to each other, which is a major annoyance.

The way to solve this would be to have the inactive tabs have a border around them like the active tab, have them have a different background color from the toolbar, or otherwise have some kind of separator between them. I saw another answer that gave a temporary solution, but the same answer said the solution was going to stop working in a future update. Is there a permanent solution?

The print functionality has changed a lot in the latest versions of Firefox and is causing me problems so I wonder if there are settings or add-ons which I've missed which would help.

Specifically:

1) The preview is no longer full screen. This makes it difficult to adjust a view, of say a map, so that the area printed is precisely what is wanted. The full screen preview in older versions of Firefox made this very easy. Is there any way of getting a full screen print preview page?

2) Previously it was possible to set custom headers and footers on a printed page. This was ideal for labelling printouts is a descriptive way, so useful for future reference, and enabled the removal of unwanted information. In the present version of Firefox all I seem to be able to do is switch printing of default headers/footers on and off. Is there a way of customising headers and footers that I've missed?

Thanks

I have never asked for logins to be saved. Now saved logins comes up when I try to sign in to my email. I do not like it!! I travel with my computer and do not want my passwords automatically entered.

How do I get rid of any logins that have been saved?

What did they do with Firefox?  Are they trying to kill it?
