The tabs, address bar, and bookmarks bar takes up too much of the screen, almost 2", while another browser I use is 1 3/8" wide. Would like to know if I can shorten that up. No need to take up all of that space.

Firefox updated to 89.0 today, and my newtabpage looks odd. The shortcuts now have really small previews, as shown in the attached image. How do I get them to be full size again (i.e. fill the box)? It was easier to tell them apart at a glance before the update, post update there's too much empty space. Is there something in about:config that controls this?

Thanks in advance!

I just got a MISERABLE updated Firefox that increased the spacing in my bookmarks menu so it is essentially UNUSABLE with double or triple spacing requiring scrolling till one's arm falls off! Why is it us poor peons out here who just want to use our computers and the internet, and the Firefox they've used FOR YEARS, have to be subject to arbitrary UNNECESSARY changes made by some "developer", possible trying to justify his/her existence and/or is stir crazy in lockdown? win10 bookmarks on the right. FIX IT! And stop screwing up WHAT WAS WORKABLE! I'm not a "nerd" able to just manipulate stuff...I want MY FIREFOX BACK!

Hello, I've been able to take screenshots, one of my favorite features, and the selection to do so was located by tapping on the 3 dots in the browser bar. Today I made the selection to take a screenshot and the option was not there.

I followed the instructions from earlier posts on how to check to see if the option was True or False and in the area that showed me if it was still available. They were correct.

Is there any other reason why that choice would not be there?

Hello everyone, My mum's Firefox isn't showing in the ... dots area called Page actions of the bar the Take a Screenshot icon. I am able to add it from the Customize Toolbar... area but NOT back to where it was, in the Page actions area. Is there a way to do this? I tried this for 2h now and there is no explanation how that icon disappeared in the first place. Perhaps there is a way o moving icons around? Fresh install version 88.0 (64 bits), ignore Romanian language, icons are universal :)

I used to right click within a website to display a separate window which f.e. showed all the media that is on that website. I don't know what the option is called as it doesn't exist anymore in the currect version (88.0), so I can't lookup and I used the dutch version. I really used that function, the developers window is not what I mean and far more complicated.

Hello there,

So, my issue is that some websites, only on Firefox, are logging me out as soon as I enter my mail + PW.

Those are the right ones for sure, and I tried in Troubleshoot mode to see if the issue persists, and it does.

Hence my request here, did someone encounter the same problem and managed to fix it? If you have any idea about what's worth trying, I'm all ears.

I REALLY dislike the new bookmark pull-down feature, which has larger fonts and far too much space between bookmarks. Now I have to scroll (for which I can't use the mouse) to get to the bottom of a long bookmark list. I prefer older versions.

How may I change the appearance of this feature?

The latest version of Firefox wastes too much space at the top of the window. Stuff is spread out too much. Also the drop down menus from the items in the Bookmarks Toolbar appeared to be double spaced. I will use another browser until this is fixed.

Hi! With the latest update to Firefox, the tab height is now taking up too much of my vertical screen space and the option to make them compact seems to be gone from where it used to be in the settings. I've tried to search for an extension to fix this, but haven't managed to find one. What do you all suggest I do?

(I don't want to use Chrome. It takes so much RAM that I can't really run both Chrome & Discord at the same time, let alone anything else with it.)

Thank you!

Not under More Tools, either.

I will reserve judgment on the new version. Don't expect these minor inconveniences.

Hi All, I use Get Pocket - a lot! Before the last couple updates the normal bookmark icon - would click on that and there would be a link to Get Pocket list. That has now disappeared. The only way I can find to see the list, is click on the "save to pocket" icon, whereby it then saves the page I am on, although I don't want to save the page, and it also has a link to view the list. So have to click on that, then delete the page just saved. All so ridiculous. I must be missing something here. The update before this, was the same and I reverted back to an older version of Firefox. Thought would try this latest update, but no ... the pocket list link inside the bookmarks icon is not there.

How can I get to view pocket list without having to first save the page I am on, then delete it? What am I missing. I attach three images. One of how I used to use the Get Pocket list .. i.e. using the bookmark icon. Then what the book mark icon shows now .. no pocket list ... and the only way I have found to view the list, but saving a page first :) ..... Thanks for any advice.

After the Firefox upgrade to version 89, the icons disappeared from the menu. When I look at the changes page, I see that they have been specifically removed. In my case, the functionality of the Firefox menu has been severely compromised by losing those icons. So far, I’ve used those icons as a mechanism for faster navigation between different points. Because it is faster to recognize a single icon (character) than to read text. In the past, toolbar items overlapped menu items with icons. And now not. Not only that, the layout of the menu items has changed.

My suggestion would be to return the icons. And make them show / hide through settings.

A new version has been released - 89. And the user interface has changed again. And some of the changes are very annoying. I thought I would write a feedback (review). But I found out through google that the feedback page has been down since 2014.

So the question would be where can I leave feedback on one change or another?
