Since 91.3esr update, over a period of a couple of days, if I open the Windows 10 hidden icons I will see a large number of FF icons that disappear immediately after I hover over them. Are these FireFox icons (see picture attached)? I also note that FireFox left untouched will be using 25% of my 32GB memory growing over a period of time. When first opened (I have restore previous sessions option selected), it is minimal memory usage.

Okay, hi- first time here. I have, as far as I know, all my preferences set correctly- clear history and cookies upon shutdown, etc yet EVERY time I reopen Firefox it's attempting to resume my last session which seems to me to be the opposite of how I have it configured so I was wondering what I also need to do to eliminate this privacy concern. Thanks in advance~

hey, is there any way to get rid of the "Search with Google" underneath the url bar when typing a query? I never actually use it. I've gotten rid of all the other suggestions but this one remains, and there seems to be no option to disable it. I'll attach an image for reference.

I was looking for a way to reset Firefox to bring back the previous print preview. In several places the person offering an answer suggests sending feedback to Mozilla re the changes, but... no link or place to send feedback.

My desktop and laptop have only just been updated to the latest version with very bright white backgrounds, really large firefox icon on home page, less definition between tabs, a lighter weight font on menus, strange layout on the hamburger menu, and a reset to a google-like print window.

I tried on my desktop to change the bright white background using the colors option. Once I found the settings to tone down the brightness to a very pale grey for the home page and results page, every page I went to had changed fonts and lost colors.

Print preview was an awesome tool, many web pages are set up in such a way that when it is printed the fonts are huge, and the web page header prints over the text of the printout. On the worst panels of links to other stories and ads also print. Your preview allowed me to zoom in/out easily and the simplified version was brilliant.

The tabs are grey on grey with no definite edge, and they just keep shrinking showing less and less of the tab name, instead of hiding extra tabs of the edges. I have 10-20 tabs open on a regular basis often in 2 separate windows and would much rather have a tab label that IDs the page than having to click on each page.

Font - the menu font is now a small fine sans serif that is difficult to read.

Hamburger menu - Why is new tab, find in page, save page as, and print here? In particular why are they at the top of the menu? Please move the new tab panel and print panel to the bottom, the Bookmarks panel to the top and put the Settings panel immediately below it. It would also help if you added a cog icon to the settings panel.

Please add a feedback link without sign-on to your page.

I cant access specific greek websites like culture.gr, mfa.gr, idika.gr, eprocurement.gov.gr Chrome and Edge have no problem accessing them. Firefox version is 91 (win10) Thanks for your help.

web page message:

The server at culture.gr is taking too long to respond.

   The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments.
   If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer’s network connection.
   If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.

Hi,

Im using Firefox Developer Edition and every time I make a change in website's source code (not by "inspect element") I have to restart Firefox to see any change that I made. Other browsers show those changes so it's not server's fault.

I did not choose a BETA VERSION. I have used FIREFOX since VERSION 1.0. IT USED TO BE THE BEST BROWSER EVER CREATED. BUT NO LONGER. WE use Firefox to accomplish things, not to debug BETA versions all day. One day I wake up and you FORCED rel 89.0 on us and it turned the whole WEEK to crap. I had 6 consecutive crashes the other day. Today I had 5 consecutive crashes. I had to turn my PC off and give it and me a rest. I did not ask for a BETA, even to leave rel 88. YOU 'forced' it on us with your "you have no other chooses if you want to continue using FIREFOX attitude. And all you can say is: Go BACK to 'stable rel 90 AND CREATE A NEW PROFILE? DO you have any idea how hard it is for us, a USER to CREATE A NEW PROFILE FROM SCRATCH?

THIS MAKES NO SENSE, YOU CRAM A "BETA" ON US, IT CRASHES A HALF DOZEN TIMES A DAY and your answer is to go back to a stable version YOU FORCED ON US? Then we spend a day or two creating a NEW PROFILE until you force ANOTHER BETA on us to test for you? You can't let us stay on a STABLE version like rel 88 until you work out the bugs then "tell us" there is one available and advise us to INSTALL IT? THIS IS CRAZY, let alone "Professional".

Frequently after an upgrade my FF (91.0b7 (64-bit)) on Win 10 reverts to the previous version. I only notice it because I start getting prompts to upgrade.

Frankly, I'm pretty clueless and sick of Windoze but determined to not resort to Chrome or hEdge. ANY suggestions to help figure what's happening (and hopefully how to prevent it) will be greatly appreciated.

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.

I've been having an issue with firefox when trying to load my emails in aol. I don't have this problem with other browsers. After logging in with user name and password, there is a consent page that pops up. After answering that prompt, the emails should start loading. It's been taking almost 2 minutes to load. I thought that by updating to the latest version, 91.0, today, that problem would cease. It hasn't. Any ideas?

With FF91, it seems I can only delete cookies for an entire domain. I occasionally have an issue with forums.xfinity.com where it won't load. Deleting the cookies for forums.xfinity.com would fix it. Now, with FF91, I have to delete ALL xfinity.com cookies! It seems as if there should be a way to open up the 'container' to see the sub-domains, and then you could further open that up if needed to delete an individual cookie.

So this morning I accidentally involuntarily clicked on the updated window that popped up and now I have yet another update Firefox version 91 and once again I have a TabBar I don't want at the previous settings to disable proton are no longer working. Why are you forcing and shoving down my throat your insane updates addictions all the time! I don't want them I don't need them at this lame excuse for security update all because you're so concerned about my safety security and well-being... yeah right! What's next? In the next update you determine which webpages I can see and which not? It's already happening that many of legit websites I cannot access anymore because I get a security warning blah blah blah blah and even if I click on "accept the risk" and proceed I cannot get to the website anymore. What's the point? For that I don't need Firefox. We're done with Firefox. I'm going to uninstall on all our systems. I've had it with this constant updates nonsense and not asked for and unwanted changes! I have enough already with Windows update nonsense which always introduces another few dozen bugs with every update. Get a life!

....Mozilla were to build a car, (what a nightmare that would be) the next model would have the ignition key behind the head, the drive select under the seat and the accelerator on the left side....
