The ability to edit and customize the headers and footers for printing was one of my main reasons for switching from Chrome to Firefox. Now I can't find where to do this. I don't know if it was a recent update or what but I am using Windows 10 Home. Please help so I don't have to find a new browser.

I need to continue to use an application (Web Site) built with Flash Player for the first 3 months of 2021. Flash Player support ends on December 31st 2020. What is the plan at Mozilla in terms of restricting access to Flash Player in 2021? - For example, is there a timebomb in the browser so that Flash Player will seize to work on December 31st? - If not, would Flash Player become inaccessible following the first browser update in 2021? If yes, do we know when date is scheduled for approximately? - Will the behavior be the same for all Firefox versions (Light, Enterprise, iOS, Android, etc..). Thank you!

Can I Decrease White Space (Padding) Between Bookmark Items in FF89?

Is there some way to reduce the white space / padding between bookmark and menu items in the new Proton interface introduced in Firefox 89? I don't have a touchscreen and all the extra white space just means more scrolling to navigate through my bookmarks.

The AskVG site has a 02-June-2021 article at https://www.askvg.com/tip-restore-old-classic-theme-and-ui-in-firefox-89-and-later-versions/ that explains how to disable all the new Proton interface changes in about:config, but is there one specific hidden preference / flag (e.g., browser.proton.toolbar.version) mentioned in that article that controls the spacing between bookmarks and menu items?

There is a also a companion article on AskVG titled https://www.askvg.com/tip-restore-compact-mode-density-option-in-firefox-customize-window/ with instructions on how to change two Density options (browser.compactmode.show and browser.uidensity) in about:config, but I have no idea if changing my density setting to "Compact" would actually decrease white space (padding) between bookmark and menu items.

Dark Mode used to work beautifully in Firefox. Today it stopped working. I can choose Dark Mode in the settings page, and the settings page itself then uses Dark Mode. But Dark Mode does not work in any of the other pages, only the settings page. I think it must be a flaw in an update that was installed automatically today. (September 7, 2021)

Is there a way to uninstall this update and go back to the previous version. Dark Mode used to work beautifully and Firefox was my favorite browser. Can someone help? Thanks.

After the update that changed the bookmarks menu spacing in the most unhelpful way, I have reduced this stupid double padding between the folders with a hack - an now with the current update to 91.0.2 - it is back on!!???

Whose idiotic idea it was without giving us the OPTION of single OR double padding??

Why do we have to look online for the hacks and workarounds to remove this most idiotic and controlling change??

Please bring the single padding back NOW or I will completely switch to Chrome or simply will stop updating firefox!

You will NOT control how many folders and bookmarks I can see in my top menu bookmarks - and this idiotic double padding has removed half of them from my menu!!!

The sidebar that is brought up by clicking on the sidebar button normally shows whatever you choose on its dropdown menu (Bookmarks, History, or synced tabs). And it used to be, if you choose Bookmarks on that menu, it shows bookmarks the next time you open it. But since a few weeks, it is always showing History when clicked, even though I only ever use it for Bookmarks. Is there any way to stop this behaviour?
