Firefox Developer Edition downloaded 89.0b1 tonight. When you choose Submit Feedback in the help/about form it goes nowhere. Actually to a "coming soon" page for ideas.mozilla.com. Is that so you won't have to field complaints about the "improvements" in this version? Because I have several complaints.

Site information (security / lock icon menu) not displaying correctly in Nightly

So this visual bug has been happening on my Nightly install for months now. The "Site information for website.com" menu that appears when you click the lock icon in the address bar is basically unusable for me. The menu's header, "clear cookies" button, and arrow button are all fine, but the text in between is covered in globe icons. The "Connection Security" sub-menu that the arrow leads to has a similar case. (See screenshot.)

Huge disclaimer: I am using Shadowfox, which modifies a Firefox install to make UI elements darker. It has made text difficult to read for me at times, but it has never produced any really strange artifacts like this one as far as I can tell. I do have a Developer Edition install with no Shadowfox and it doesn't have the issue. However, maybe this is a common Nightly issue. (I guess this wouldn't make sense since DE is even more experimental than Nightly? I think?)

Maybe this is a problem for the Shadowfox team. Ultimately, the solution I really want is native support for a full-fledged dark mode, with black or gray color for UI elements such as the context menu. If this isn't going to happen and Shadowfox is indeed the source of the issue, I'll gladly let them know. But I thought it would be good to share with Mozilla, and why not the community, too. (Feedback tool is down right now.)

Hi there! Some background info: I have a desktop PC. I just got the newest firefox update. ...Thanks; I hate it. And they've altered the way the bookmarks look. So now the bookmarks drop-down menu is so long that I have to scroll down to see everything on it, (I didn't have to before). And what's worse is that sometimes one moment it will be over the Windows taskbar that's at the bottom of my screen and suddenly it will disappear UNDER the taskbar where I can't see everything and I struggle to access anything with my mouse. It's SO aggravating. How do I fix this??

Dear Firefox developers: stop changing shortcuts which users have used on a daily basis for YEARS! It is like you are making fun of users, always changing. After the last update, I cannot find how to take screenshots, the link vanished from where it was.

I had to search where you put it. It was very well where you put it before, why do you have to always change? Is this a type of game? Stop doing it!

In the past I have frequently used "Take A Screenshot" by positioning the cursor at the 3 dots (vertical ellipsis) near the end of the address bar input area and selecting the now missing function. Presently I have upgraded to Firefox version 88 on windows 10 and can not find anyplace to turn this function back on in the configuration section. SOLUTIONS ANYONE, I NEED THIS BACK?

Note: I want to restore the function under the ellipsis and do not desire to use Ctrl-Shift-S.

Can I Decrease White Space (Padding) Between Bookmark Items in FF89?

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.

I thought I'd post it here for other people to find. I run Linux Mint (64 bit) so this may effect Ubuntu as well and potentially other distributions. After the update to version 89 Firefox was COMPLETELY transparent. I saw more of the background than I did of the browser or the websites. After doing some digging around I found I had to enable layers.acceleration.disabled in config:about.

To do this open Firefox and in the address bar type config:about Do a search for layers.acceleration.disabled Double click it to enable it Close firefox and re-open it to verify your transparency is gone.

I hope this helps someone.

First of all: I tried to "give feedback" first, by going to that crowdicity website. I had to create an account, then I created an "idea" but it wasn't even allowed by the mods.

The 89 design is not user friendly, it takes away too much of my screen. I want to see the website, not some bloated tabs. And what on earth is meant by unsupported in the customize menu when I try to select compact? I always recommendet Firefox, among my friends and family as well as among my customers. Since day 1 I was with you, but this is just the absolute opposite of user friendliness. Even Microsoft Edge shows more of the actual website, I'm trying to look at. No "unsupported" compact mode needed, it is already even less obstrusive than that.

There were so many users who begged you not to do this. But you didn't listen. I want to be nice and kind but you gotta listen to your users, not just rely on your telemetry data. If someone chooses to install Firefox, a lot of people have the ability and knowledge to turn off that stuff. Those are your most loyal users. Listen to them.
