I am using Firefox Browser 89.0(x64), I noticed that my startpage was constantly alterated to "https://start.firefoxchina.cn", everytime I set to defalut (which is about:home), it would return "https://start.firefoxchina.cn" automatically, what behavior is that? I do actually being in China, but I don't want my startpage to be alteration without my consent.

Just updated My "MALWARE" the Anti-malware software application. It asked me if I wanted to enable some software artificial intelligence see everything know everything help with everything feature I clicked learn more then could not go back to question page. I DO NOT WANT TO grant such permission, I have looked thru "Malware's" settings and cannot find it. Iit starts, I believe, with the letters "Ge" and is one word, (Gestation?...dont know). Firefox was supposed to have a problem with it and warn me but I rebooted and Firefox said nothing. How do I find this feature in "malware the app" and disable-kill it? I never authorized it but I did not have a chance to say no eithersay no either. Signed: Freaked out

I have set in the options that Firefox should ask where the files with will be downloaded should be placed. Despite of that, Firefox download the files to the default folder (Downloads in the user home directory).

I am starting a new thread and repeating what I had written in the old thread which had too many responses to follow coherently.

I am not sure what td47 means as I don't have this issue as I only use DuckDuckGo which is there when open a new tab.

What want to know how you get the icons in the header of the screen to be "seeable". I believe with my header I always had white print which is now nearly invisible. Not only that but all the icons up there shrank and became outlines only instead of solid objects! I have cats batik_01 theme. It seems all the themes I have ever used had write print but I got by ok til now. Is it that I have to have a lighter toned theme in order to see everything up there again or what?

I'd take a screenshot but you can't of the header/or I don't know how to do this.

Having read through previous threads on side bar spacing of bookmarks I can't find a solution.

Basically I want to reduce the spacing on the side bar so I can see more bookmarks. Please see enclosed image. Is there an easy way of doing this. I did this some time ago using a Chrome ccs file but I can't remember how and if this works on the latest version of Firefox.

Many thanks Adrian.

With the upgrade to FF 89, the font used to display text on the browser itself (not the webpages it displays) has changed to be a thinner and possibly smaller font. My eyes do not like this!

I need to be able to either make it bold, or make it larger, or possibly both. I have tried changing the font in the settings page, but that seems to only apply to webpages, which is not what i need.

I'm running win 10 on a Toshiba Satellite laptop and Firefox v.89.

Thank you for any suggestions.

In the old firefox, I had the opportunity to share websites and f. e. send them from my laptop to my stationary computer. I think there were three dots ... next to the url. But that is gone. I used that a lot for websites that I needed to print out (my laptop isn't connected to the printer's vpn).

What now? I don't think I can use pocket for that, since that saves all the websites, I just need to send them once.

Windows 10 Firefox 88/89 64-bit PC It seems there was a compact mode before version 89? I don't know if that's what I want.

I would like to have a simple selection in FF Preferences to turn OFF the Proton stuff. I am not an IT geek and I'm not comfortable doing things like changing CSS code - if I knew how to do that stuff, I'd be using Linux not Windows. Since I'm stuck with Windows, I rely on a good browser like FF v.88 to take care of the technical stuff.

Version 89 seems to be OK with Proton shut off, but I hear this is a temporary fix. I also don't know if shutting off Proton fixed the spacing nightmare in Bookmarks - I lost mine reloading v.88 and haven't had a chance to look for them. (v.89 is on the PC upstairs - this one is still on v.88.)

For some context on the anger at FF's change, those of us who use Facebook on a regular basis were forced into a horrendous update in late 2021 which barely works, and Facebook continuously changes code, fixing what isn't broken. To find that the browser we've relied on for years did the same with no warning is very upsetting.

I'd like to get a message directly to Mozilla but "Submit Feedback" has been shut down for over a week.
