A few months ago Firefox decided to double space all the items in menus. Reading through the forums many people didn't like this because of the amount of space that the menus now take up. Fortunately there was a work around, by setting 'browser.proton.contextmenus.enabled to false they returned to normal

This morning Firefox my got upgraded and the double spacing problem is back again. However there appears to be a bug with the setting and the menus won't return to normal. I'm now stuck with stupidly large menus that won't fit on the screen and lots of painful scrolling.

Does anybody have an alternative workaround until this is fixed?

Google maps bookmarks shows icon different from site icon.

Firefox saved Google Maps Bookmark shows icon as https://www.google.com/favicon.ico instead of https://www.google.com/images/branding/product/ico/maps15_bnuw3a_32dp.ico This problem is there for many months but seems there is no fix. Google Chrome and MS Edge do not have this wrong bookmarks icon problem.

Firefox has been saving images from some sites as webp instead of JPG for a long time. There have been repeated threads on this subject which get locked and then pushed into the long grass.

Sure, I could botch a solution by installing an add-on to convert them, or I could use something like XnView (which I do, periodically, and in bulk) after the save event has happened, or I can edit about:info to tell Firefox not to accept webp - but this breaks functionality for some sites (like eBay), but I have found that in the end I have had to start switching to Microsoft Edge to do my browsing for a number of sites because Mozilla Firefox are ignoring repeated user requests to provide a simple option to STOP doing this.

I don't want to save any files as webp - save them as PNG if you like, or jpg, but I use an ancient copy (v3.24) of ACDsee (from the days of Windows 98) for my image browsing, sorting, viewing etc because it is perfect, blisteringly quick, has no extra editing or other functionality which I don't need or want, and it doesn't bloat up anywhere with thumbnail files... but sadly webp didn't exist back then so it doesn't support it. I have used a number of much more up to date browser-viewers, but there is nothing can touch this OLD version of ACDsee for basically brilliant design.

I'm not changing my image viewer. It's non-negotiable.

I WILL however change my web browser if I have to, if the developers of the browser continually kick into the long grass to lock, hide away and pretend there's isn't an issue which has been repeatedly flagged as an annoyance for so many users.

I have been using one form or other of 'Mozilla' family of browsers since the days of Quarterdeck Mosaic. I don't particularly want to switch my loyalty, especially to Microsoft, but if they are listening to what customers want and providing it, and Mozilla are not, what else is there to do ?

I am a retired systems developer. I cannot envisage this being SUCH a big ask.

Modern software treats its users like idiots and takes away control, doing everything it's assumes on their behalf that they will want.

It is not difficult to provide an option within settings for when saving webp files to save as webp, png or jpg with conversion if necessary. All you need to do is hear the screams and respond. :)

There is a little robot in my search bar, that makes my search bar orange with a lighter orange stripe pattern. When I hover my mouse over the robot it says "this browser is under remote control". I have googled and looked everywhere for more information about this, as I am completely unaware on what it is. Could someone tell me what it is and what it does? I really just want to make sure it isn't a virus, and that I don't need to keep covering my camera anymore.

Thank you so much.

So for the most part I rather like update 89. It looks snappy. One annoying issue I'm currently having is that Firefox will no longer open maximized on start up. I click the shortcut and it opens in a little window on the left side of my screen. I click the maximize button and instead of maximizing to full screen it moves the little window onto the right side of my screen. Clicking maximize a second time finally gets the browser to open full size. Why is it doing this and how do I make it stop? Never did this before 89, now all of a sudden it does it. I'd like for the browser to open fill size instead of clicking multiple times before it finally decides to do so. Thanks.

I've just added UK English and restarted Firefox. Now, why can I not remove US English, even though that one shouldn't be in use, and I still can remove UK English, even though that one *is* in use (or should be)?

Greying out a button is only recommended when it's crystal clear why that is. In this case, I have no clue why I couldn't remove US English, and so gryeing out that button makes no sense to me. It should be enabled, and display a message explaining why a language can't be removed if it can't be.

For the moment, can someone please explain why US English can't be removed then?

Help, how can I go BACK to the last version of Firefox?? I HATE Version 89. Not only do the new tabs all blend in with each other because they're all the same color, but they're placed lower in the screen and add a strip of unused dead space along the top of screen, which means the content I want to see is all pushed down into a smaller, squished space. Arg - already getting high blood pressure trying to navigate it!
