My firefox installed a new update, 89, and now my tabs are missing, except that the active tab is floating down at the center bottom of the screen. i can still navigate with keyboard shortcuts, but i don't know how many i have open, what they are, and personally DO NOT like navigating with shortcuts if i don't have to.

why is it necessary to keep messing with tabs? weren't they just fine below the address bar back in the day? How is ruining the user experience worth whatever was even trying to be done here?

image is how my firefox looks right now

Please help me get rid of the stupid and ugly Tab bar space on newest Firefox. I hate Tabs and now there is a big space above the address bar for Tabs. I have looked everywhere for a way to turn it off like it has been since Tabs came out. I only want new windows if I want a new window.

If I can't turn that huge space gap off is there any way to go back to what I had before the last update without messing everything up? Why did someone decide to make the browser window smaller and waste that space by making the browser bigger....

Sorry if I sound cranky but, I started using Netscape Navigator 1.0 and every version since and this is the worse thing that has ever been done to a browser... Thank you for any help you can give me!

W7 HP 64B. After the recent v89 update I have to ask, "why" ? Why change to wire icons ? Why not give me that option instead of you forcing it ? Why make themes when they don't change to what I want ? Why make the margin at the top of the screen larger ? Why should I have to try and "about:config: , to change something back ? Why are you not aware of the people you are forcing to use Chrome ? Who are you taking "MY CHOICES" away ? Are you demonicrats ? Why should I continue to use FF, when you have no answers, just rhetoric ?

I just want native full-screen. It's 2021- why is such a simple feature still impossible!??? (Heck- even F11 doesn't work on my computer). Please please please- just a check-box for "Always launch in full-screen mode". Speaking of such matters- your smooth scroll option ain't! I have to use Logitech's extension to get it and even then there's no speed control. I see this endlessly- companies focus on glitz and gloss over/see through the essential basics (It's what killed Opera!).

Hello, it is enough to search "version 89 visuals" in the help forum to find dozens of topic complaining how awful it looks, and the reduced functionality, content on screen and efficiency.

Luckily in one of the threads I found solution, and links to articles to fix most of the biggest issues:

As a temporary tactic to buy time, you can use a preference to revert the tab bar to its older appearance. This is just for Firefox 89, so you have a month to keep an eye out for the next workaround. To set that up: (1) In a new tab, type or paste about:config in the address bar and press Enter/Return. Click the button accepting the risk. (2) In the search box in the page, type or paste proton (or full browser.proton.enabled) (3) Double-click the preference to switch between true (new Proton style) and false (old Photon style) Since this was kept in just for testing, there might be some occasional glitches.

Here the options I changed - set false to all.

   browser.proton.contextmenus.enabled
   browser.proton.doorhangers.enabled
   browser.proton.enabled
   browser.proton.modals.enabled
   browser.proton.places-tooltip.enabled

+ even further reduction of the spaces -> browser.uidensity -> 1

I expect the new Proton view is inspired by touch screens - and is more optimized for tablets, giving more space around individual options, with extra space around them - to make sure you hit the right option with your finger. The downside is we get less visible options on the screen, as now each option takes more space - and it is absolutely awful and less visible for people using desktop mode, and using the more precise mouse and/or keyboard.

And here a list of the problems and annoyances in V89, and why they are a problem (and these are only the ones I noticed so far - attached is a screenshot collage of the issues.

1. Tabs which play audio no longer show that they play audio, unless I hover on top of them - which is a big problem if you have 20 tabs, and are searching which one auto-played some audio. In the previous version each tab playing audio had the audio icon on top of it. 2. My bookmarks take much more space on my screen, and while previously I organized them to fit perfectly to it, now are going outside of it, and I have to (unnecessarily) scroll to find more. 3. On YouTube There was a "delete video" button next to each video in my "watch later" list, and I was able to quickly delete the watched ones. Now I have to click on the 3 dots, and then on the trash bin button to delete. Much slower an annoying. Return to the old vision (sadly I cannot find a way to fix this yet)

This totally failed visualization must IMMEDIATELY be reversed, and you must add option in the VIEW menu - which switches between the old DESKTOP view (version 88 style), and new TABLET view (V89 style).

And it must not be allowed that you disable the browser.proton.enabled option in the next update, as this will force us to use only the new awful view, and give us 3 options:

1. Revert to 88. I have already backed up my profile, and downloaded it, in case V90 ruins the view permanently. This also opens us to security risks - so I can allow this for no more than 2-3 months, in hope you fix this fail. 2. Switch browser. Move to Vivaldi (which I use at work) or Brave, if you refuse to fix the fail. 3. Accept the awful view - not going to happen to me. I am using Mozilla since Netscape, but this fail is infuriating enough to make me switch if made permanent / even worse.

Hi there,

I have tried to change the firefox default colours. I have tried color.firefox.com and userChrome.css, but I cant get to --in-content-primary-button-background:

   host, :root { 

--in-content-primary-button-background: rgb(119, 0, 255) !important; }

neither rgb(119, 0, 255) nor #7700ff seem to work.

How can I change this value?

Kind regards, Ben

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.

Hi Guys,

Recently, I found that my Amazon affiliate adverts don't show up on the PC screen when using Firefox browser. There is no problem with Chrome, Safari or Firefox browsers on iPhone or iPad and no problems with Chrome browser on PC. Only Firefox browser on PC screen does not show the adverts. You can check it at https://drepeternews.com/support.php with different browsers on your PC. Also do check the source code page and you will see the advert links are there. Please let me know whether you can see the adverts on your PC Firefox as that may indicate whether it is an Amazon or a Firefox or my PC issue.

This issue is with links to images and with <iframes> and only occurs on my laptops running Windows 8.10 and Windows 10.00. I have enable 3rd party cookies

Any idea how to fix this. All help is very welcome.

Thanks, Peter

When I go to do a search, as soon as I type in a letter, it jumps up to the address bar exposing past searches and all, and makes me do my search in the address bar, with my history exposed to everyone in the room which invades my privacy. How can I correct this to the way it used to be that when I searched it stayed in the search box unless I needed to used the url when I wanted to. Very surprised this started happening with the new upgrade. Can I go back to the last upgrade?
