I started the PC today and saw a strange thing - the toolkit string was gone. And at first, the system offered to put some left topics. I started to tinker with the settings and did not see how to remove the "innovation". Separately, I found a stupid one who asked to do such a nasty thing. He obviously does not know how to use the F11 button. Conclusion - you need to migrate to a more adequate and traditional browser. But you also need to transfer everything you typed here.

Are there tools for a normal transfer, or do you need to manually edit everything?

Hello, I googled this but I couldn't find a problem that looks like mine.

When I want to add a site to my bookmarks, I select the website address and carry to more bookmarks toolbar icon that looks like this: >> and put it wherever I want.

I used this earlier today but somehow I can't use it now. I can select the site, carry to more bookmarks icon (>>), more bookmark toolbar appears but I when I try to carry the website down, it immediately disappears.

I hope I have explained it well. Thanks.

I have vertical double vision, which can only be partially corrected with glasses. When I look straight ahead or to the right I am fine but as I look to the left my double my increases from 3 deg to 10 and at the extreme left it is 20 deg. so when reading text my brain has a problem going from the right end of a line to the left end of the the line below.

88 was OK as the as the top blue band helped my brain.

The bottom half of dbBenRoseySky is fine for me but the top half is hopeless. I struggle to read black on dark grey. Firefox Alpenglow would work for me, but the vertical stripes, particularly on the left throw my brain.

Any suggestions would be gratefully received.

Firefox has upgraded to 89.0 version and following last Microsoft trend, I've got bigger menu items and smaller menu fonts making it mor difficult to read and wasting screen space. I mean, where before were 30 items in marker's menu, now only fits about half of them.

It is really annoying getting texts more difficult to read in exchange to coloured blank space, not to mention if you have vision issues.

I've been trying made some kind of customization around this but it has been a loss of time. Is there some adjustement to fix this that I have not seen?

Thanks.

At first blush, I'm not finding this "makeover" particularly helpful.

In particular, now the window banner background color is invariable. Most apps follow Windows theme. But not FF - colors do not change, as they should, when window becomes active. Curiously, the show all Bookmarks | History (probably as they are native Windows dialogs), do not have this annoyance.

Was this considered an improvement, or is it a mistake? Yes, I have tried to fix this in Settings but find nothing relevant.

Thank you.

I like all my apps to show bright color when active and dimmed/no color when inactive. Firefox only has one setting - always on. I dislike monochrome themes like FF defaults to.

Basically I just want to use the colors I spent time choosing in windows 10 for the FF colors - title bar mostly.

Any ideas?

Thanks.

The latest update of firefox gives a blank top half of the page on every page - including about:addons. Sometimes this blank bit is clickable and sometimes it is not. When opened in safe mode it does not give a blank top half and can be used. This behaviour occurs even when there are no addons installed. It occurs despite reinstallation and restarting.

Any help would be blessed.

With Firefox 89.0 (Win 10) suddenly only 50 downloads are possible at the same time. All other activities in other tabs / windows are frozen. With the previous version, more than 300 downloads were possible without any problems and the browser has not slowed down. I want to go back to my old version, especially since the design is more appealing.

Mit Firefox 89.0 (Win 10) sind schlagartig nur noch 50 Downloads gleichzeitig möglich. Alle weiteren Aktivitäten in weiteren Tabs / Fenstern sind eingefroren. Mit der Vorgängerversion waren ohne Probleme mehr als 300 Downloads möglich und der Browser ist nicht langsamer geworden. Ich möchte meine alte Version zurück zumal das Design ansprechender ist.

With FF open to a banking site, Excel and other apps (2nd FF instance) will not accept alpha/numeric keyboard input. Arrow keys and enter key still work. Logged out from bank, close the FF window, bring up new tab (Goggle) and type "123" in search bar, then Excel works okay. Also works if I use Edge to get to my bank accounts.

Work around #1: save bank page on desktop, close the on-line page, and open it from desktop. Work around #2: Use Edge.

Added info: problem is not consistent. Sometimes things work okay, sometimes not.

OS: Windows 7 Firefox Version: Current, no extensions or add-ons active

This problem started out of the blue a month or two ago. When I type in the search box or any input field on a web page, more often than not, the browser will go into "Not Responding" mode and I have to exit and restart. At the same time this started, the same problem also started happening when a pop-up window would appear (perhaps only those with input fields?). The problem with input fields seems to happen most often when they are trying to auto-complete what I am typing, but turning this off in the search box did not end the problem there, just made it happen a little less often.

I tried doing a 'refresh' on Firefox, that had no effect.

If I run Firefox in troubleshooting mode, the problem does not occur.

I do not think this is a virus problem; I have Kaspersky running, and I haven't seen any other telltale signs.
