Wanted to stop using the URL box for my SEARCHES and stick with the old SEARCH box because if my 'search' did not find what I was looking for, I could just change a word or two instead of typing the whole darn thing all over again. Your Forum advised to use the 'about:config' and the "Handoff" option. I may have changed "HANDOFF" default my mistake as could not find a list of default values. So, 1. What is the default value for HANDOFF? 2. Is there a LIST of the defaults, TRUE or FALSE in case I need to 'monkey' with 'about:config' in the future. I am not at all happy with some of the changes in rel 89.0 and 'messing' with the URL box, the SEARCH box, etc. 3. I tried to "go back" to previous a release and avoid/skip rel 89.0 but was forced to because of PROFILES, there locations, multiple ones and not knowing the 'most recent' to choose so was forced to use rel 89.0.

Thank You.

Windows 10 Firefox 88/89 64-bit PC It seems there was a compact mode before version 89? I don't know if that's what I want.

I would like to have a simple selection in FF Preferences to turn OFF the Proton stuff. I am not an IT geek and I'm not comfortable doing things like changing CSS code - if I knew how to do that stuff, I'd be using Linux not Windows. Since I'm stuck with Windows, I rely on a good browser like FF v.88 to take care of the technical stuff.

Version 89 seems to be OK with Proton shut off, but I hear this is a temporary fix. I also don't know if shutting off Proton fixed the spacing nightmare in Bookmarks - I lost mine reloading v.88 and haven't had a chance to look for them. (v.89 is on the PC upstairs - this one is still on v.88.)

For some context on the anger at FF's change, those of us who use Facebook on a regular basis were forced into a horrendous update in late 2021 which barely works, and Facebook continuously changes code, fixing what isn't broken. To find that the browser we've relied on for years did the same with no warning is very upsetting.

I'd like to get a message directly to Mozilla but "Submit Feedback" has been shut down for over a week.

An Ad-on disappeared from my toolbar. It is still installed, but I can't use it. I deinstalled it and installed it new. But it does not appear again. It is not hidden in - what you might call in English - the "overflow bar". What can I do to make it appear again?

Thanks in advance Dirk

2 or 3 weeks ago I allowed Firefox to update, something I don't usually do, on the promise of a better browser. Foolish me Will I ever learn ? I can honestly say I see nothing improved from the Firefox I have used for years but found one big problem. The drop down menus have been altered to double or triple spacing, admittedly easier to read but, with years of use, my menus are large and now take forever to find the address I am looking for. How do I restore single spacing in drop down menus?

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.

Recently, I've been unable to view paid for video, for example on Netflix. I get the following error message:

The WidevineCdm Plugin has crashed. FATAL Clpp-Error [Category 6 - Code 6002]: {"browserError":""}

I'm using a macOS 10.95 and, says Firefox,:

"Note: The current version of Google Widevine is no longer compatible with older macOS versions such as OS X 10.9 and 10.10. Only macOS versions 10.11 and above are supported."

So my question, since it seems my mac is no longer compatible with Widevine, is whether there a way for me to watch video on Firefox? Perhaps with another plugin? Or no plugin? Perhaps this is an issue to take up with Widevine?

Thanks in advance.
