Firefox updated and now my tabs are above the address bar, I hate it. I have went through all the information I could and created a new chrome folder, downloaded the css and changed user preferences but it sets the tabs to the bottom of the screen not just below the address bar. I think I need a different set of code for the css but cant find a copy. Does anyone know what to do?

Is there a way to use older look without downgrading the whole browser to previous versions?

In my opinion the new design is an absolute eyesore. None of the themes available even resemble what I liked about Firefox. I always adored this browser for simplicity and clarity, but they completely overdid it in the current version.

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?

When I went to version 89.0 today, the default theme was changed so that the title bar turned white when I had it set to light blue and if I had two or more firefox windos up the non active ones were white as well when they used to be gray. While I want a light theme, the present light theme is so white that it hurts my eyes. You had a decent default before, but now it is terrible. Change it back! Look at the terrible image below that shows an active and a non active window.

As of yesterday, June 1, my theme changed in Firefox. It's too light and the dark one is too dark. Can I have the original one back? I've played around with different themes and I don't care for any of the fancy colored ones. I just want the top bar to be a darker gray like it was 2 days ago. I cannot distinguish from the top bar and the tabs now. It all blends as one color. Thank you. Barbara

First I was stuck in an upgrade loop where Firefox would ask me to restart to install the upgrade but then isn't upgraded on restart. So I manually downloaded latest version from the website and installed it. Now after installing I lost my current session (opened tabs). I have enabled sync so I can still see the synced tabs in my Firefox account under my device, but I don't know how to open all tabs from a particular device.

How do I open all synced tabs from a particular device in Firefox 89 on macOS 11.3.1?

Is there some way to reduce the white space / padding between bookmark and menu items in the new Proton interface introduced in Firefox 89? I don't have a touchscreen and all the extra white space just means more scrolling to navigate through my bookmarks.

The AskVG site has a 02-June-2021 article at https://www.askvg.com/tip-restore-old-classic-theme-and-ui-in-firefox-89-and-later-versions/ that explains how to disable all the new Proton interface changes in about:config, but is there one specific hidden preference / flag (e.g., browser.proton.toolbar.version) mentioned in that article that controls the spacing between bookmarks and menu items?

There is a also a companion article on AskVG titled https://www.askvg.com/tip-restore-compact-mode-density-option-in-firefox-customize-window/ with instructions on how to change two Density options (browser.compactmode.show and browser.uidensity) in about:config, but I have no idea if changing my density setting to "Compact" would actually decrease white space (padding) between bookmark and menu items.

Firefox updated itself this morning to Version 89.0(64-bit) on my Windows 10 desktop. Now, when I open a new tab and start to type an search term into the search box on the Firefox home page on that tab, it begins typing in the address bar instead. Is this the new normal, or a glitch?

The 89.0 update is great, but I'm disappointed by the new homepage (see the picture). The font is too small, and if I scale the page, the lower row doesn't fit to the screen. A good option would be to remove the useless huge Firefox logo in the middle of the page and to shift the search bar up. Then I could just scale the page. Is there a way to do it?

Changing fonts on every page is not a satisfying solution, I only want to fix the homepage.

Is separated tab a bug or bad design? If the second, how can I revert to logical tab, that connected to its page? (And why the hell such ugly design decision passed?)

As I can see Themes show proper design with connected tabs: https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2021-06-02-08-11-27-3907e9.png
