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?

I'd guess there's already a discussion regarding this, but I don't know where. Getting rid of the borders when there are multiple tabs open and turning things gray makes for a far worse browsing experience for me. Why would one string of undifferentiated text in a long line of tabs make things any easier? It does not.

I've found a helpful site that allows turning off the new theme, but a commenter advises that that option too will soon be disabled: https://www.askvg.com/tip-restore-old-classic-theme-and-ui-in-firefox-89-and-later-versions/

Is there an add-on that keeps the "classic" theme? I've googled how to provide feedback. One of those links is dead. What's the best way to make my thoughts known?

People love tech, but the older I get the more I see how it demonstrates a lack of ownership, that nothing is really yours on your devices, that what you're comfortable with is only one weekly update away.

After the latest boot-up on my Manjaro desktop, Firefox is compeletely mute. All other applications are producing sound as normal, it's just Firefox that's gone silent. Checked the mute settings on the individual tabs, Checked the speakers, checked the linux system settings, checked ever volume control I can find, still no sound. I'm stumped. As far as I can tell, there's nothing telling Firefox to keep quiet, it just is for some inexplicable reason.

FF seems to keep forgetting what I call "legitimate" cookies. For example:

  • For websites I use daily without a login, like Accuweather, every few days I get their "Accept our cookies?" messages.
  • For sites that allow an on-going login, I need to re-login frequently. Not daily, but certain not months later.
  • I have a financial site that allows me to set only certain devices may be recognized. Today it said a device I use weekly or so is no longer recognized.

There is an old thread that may be relevant: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1309877

But several issues: That thread is closed, even though this bug is still going. Also it only covers Windows and I could use help with Windows & iOS versions.

Could "Tracking Protection" level come into play? I had it set to Standard but noticed recently it was Strict. I think Firefox changed that, not me, but I can't be 100% positive. Meanwhile I changed it back to Standard but so far the issue remains.

Thank you,

Joe

Hi,

I've recently moved PCs and I'm trying to import all my previous bookmarks to the new PC. The old PC was wiped completely to re-use the components in the new PC, however it was fully backed-up.

Previous to re-formatting everything, I made a Firefox account for easy bookmark transfer.

When I logged into the Firefox account on the new PC, no bookmarks synced. However, website history did sync.

In 'Settings > Sync > Manage Account', scrolling to the bottom of the page displays the name of my old PC, so Firefox does know that it exists. If all my bookmarks are stored in the cloud and not on my own hardware, why aren't they syncing?

Thanks for any help.

I Lost my FF session, (not sure what I did, but the menu toolbar shortcuts were gone & I cold not 'click' them back, so I figures I would just reboot FF.

Some dialog box popped up (I don't recall exactly what the box said, but offered me a choice to CANCEL or CONTINUE. I hit CONTINUE. FF Shut down, and when it reopened a couple of my FF windows were missing, but the toolbar shortcuts were restored.

So, I figured I would restart FF a 2nd time. Well, still missing a few windows. FF session still open.

I am looking at the session files, and trying to determine which session file do I copy, and to where, to try and get old session restored, if I can?

I tried loading the larger 58,175 KB file from 7/16/21, and it crashed the scrounger page.

I am loading a smaller in 56,853 KB file from 10/8/21 (today's date) into your SCROUNGER page, and it has been running for 10 minutes now.

I thought it might be simpler to just copy or rename the correct file (after backing them all up) into the file that will be used after I close, and restart my current FF session & just look and see what FF opens. I just don;t recall which file FF uses for each new startup. Is it recovery.jsonlz4? previous.jsonlz4? something else?

I've uploaded an image, of the screen capture, of a few of my most recently dated session files, in this folder:

I am trying to add a SVG element next to the form labels with absolute position. When there is a scroll I am listening to scroll event and updating the position of the SVG. When smooth scrolling is enabled the SVG tends to bounce over continuous scrolling. This bouncing is observed in macOS Chrome and in FireFox when smooth scrolling is enabled.

In Linux/Windows, this can be reproduced by using smooth scroll smooth scroll chrome extension.

I've captured the bouncing due to scroll in this recording

I have the latest Firefox update, and noticed that if I delete one site's cookie, then the cookies for other sites, my logins, and site data just disappear when I go onto the site despite it still being in the data when I check Settings.

One example is if I delete Twitter's cookies and then go to Discord, I'm somehow logged out of Discord, and some other sites loose my settings despite the fact that they are still there in the data untouched.

I have tried adding these sites to the Exceptions list, but the same thing still happens. I am not in Private Browsing Mode (nor have I ever used it), and I don't have Firefox set to delete cookies/site data when closed.

This started happening sometime after I updated to 91.0.2. I'm not sure if the update broke something or there's some other issue going on.

Hello Firefox. You have been my go-to browser for many years now. I am always using the latest version for Mac. About ten days ago, two of my four sites became blocked, with the "Secure Connection Failed" notice.

I am a low-income independent working artist who needs for people to have access to my sites. GoDaddy sees no issue on their end (all four of my sites are under the same deluxe hosting account with the exact same SSL encryption), and all four sites show up on Safari and Chrome. Until now, I have preferred Firefox.

https://www.alexalev.com/ https://www.paintedjay.com/

These are the results at Why No Padlock using the Firefox browser: https://www.whynopadlock.com/results/447e5a19-3baa-4374-ba79-a9829eeef737

According to Why No Padlock, everything is perfect.

To make matters screwier, none of my sites are e-commerce or take info from people. They present information and there are links off site to places like Amazon and Instagram, but there is nothing of a security issue on any of them, PLUS I have SSL encryption properly configured, anyway, no matter what, so that there would be no issue.

Please re-instate public access to my sites. I am sure this is a glitch of some kind. Nothing else explains it, but I need them to be LIVE ASAP, as I am trying desperately to make some kind of a living with the pandemic having cancelled all my shows. Thank you!

I have a certain add-in installed that Firefox sometimes says is "slowing things down" and recommends deactivating. Thing is, it's my password manager, so I absolutely never want to deactivate it, and am quite okay if it occasionally slows things down, and would like to tell Firefox to never suggest turning off this particular add-in, while still leaving that feature on for other add-ins I might care less about. Is there anyway off adding it to an "ignore it if this add-in slows things down a bit" list?
