Proton is absolute c..p as an interface I need a simple about:config fix to disable this junk permanently and get back to the classic interface forever telling future Firefox updates to leave the interface alone I do not need the hassle of having to fix something that was not broken until you improved it

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?

Google maps bookmarks shows icon different from site icon.

Firefox saved Google Maps Bookmark shows icon as https://www.google.com/favicon.ico instead of https://www.google.com/images/branding/product/ico/maps15_bnuw3a_32dp.ico This problem is there for many months but seems there is no fix. Google Chrome and MS Edge do not have this wrong bookmarks icon problem.

Hello.

I'm experiencing some strangeness with the spellcheck on Firefox and would like to know if anyone can help.

I often seem to mistype "don't" as "don;t." Same with "won't." Firefox does not mark these as incorrect. But if I type "shouldn;t" or "couldn;t" I get a red underline.

Is there something I can edit to get those words with a semicolon to be marked as misspelled?

I'm using FF 91 on Win 7. But it's been this way for a long time, many different versions.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Hi there, I'd like to make a feature request. One of the things that I love about Google Chrome is the ability to run single window apps. This is the only feature keeping me from moving to Firefox at this point. I'd like to request that this be added as a feature in Firefox. The command could be something like:

firefox --app=https://mail.provider.com

This would spawn a single app window that does not have tabs to navigate to other apps.

Thanks!

In the latest release the gap between Bookmarks on the Bookmark toolbar folders is huge. Why was this changed and how to change it back? Note this isn't happening from the menu, only from the Bookmarks toolbar folders. It is extremely ugly and huge waste of space which forces me to scroll to see all my bookmarks under some folders.

There is a little robot in my search bar, that makes my search bar orange with a lighter orange stripe pattern. When I hover my mouse over the robot it says "this browser is under remote control". I have googled and looked everywhere for more information about this, as I am completely unaware on what it is. Could someone tell me what it is and what it does? I really just want to make sure it isn't a virus, and that I don't need to keep covering my camera anymore.

Thank you so much.

So for the most part I rather like update 89. It looks snappy. One annoying issue I'm currently having is that Firefox will no longer open maximized on start up. I click the shortcut and it opens in a little window on the left side of my screen. I click the maximize button and instead of maximizing to full screen it moves the little window onto the right side of my screen. Clicking maximize a second time finally gets the browser to open full size. Why is it doing this and how do I make it stop? Never did this before 89, now all of a sudden it does it. I'd like for the browser to open fill size instead of clicking multiple times before it finally decides to do so. Thanks.

I've just added UK English and restarted Firefox. Now, why can I not remove US English, even though that one shouldn't be in use, and I still can remove UK English, even though that one *is* in use (or should be)?

Greying out a button is only recommended when it's crystal clear why that is. In this case, I have no clue why I couldn't remove US English, and so gryeing out that button makes no sense to me. It should be enabled, and display a message explaining why a language can't be removed if it can't be.

For the moment, can someone please explain why US English can't be removed then?

Help, how can I go BACK to the last version of Firefox?? I HATE Version 89. Not only do the new tabs all blend in with each other because they're all the same color, but they're placed lower in the screen and add a strip of unused dead space along the top of screen, which means the content I want to see is all pushed down into a smaller, squished space. Arg - already getting high blood pressure trying to navigate it!

Hello,

I just installed the new update. The new tab design is totally confusing/unclear to me. Especially the fact that the new tabs don't have a "seperator-line" to the next tab. Thats totally disturbing to me. It's really difficult for me to keep the overview about my normally around 60 tabs now. Is there an option to switch back to the old tabs look and feel? Are there other options to customize the look of the tab bar?

Thanks in advance and Greetz!
