Hello, it has been some time now. I'm using Firefox 89 on iMac. Some sites' pages become grey and you don't know what that is until you use another browser and find that it's the accept all cookies question on every site you go. Problem is that sometimes you don't see that button and the page becomes grey, it's somewhere maybe but you can't see it and can't click it. How is that possible? That happens evens if I change the settings in cookies management in security and privacy.

How can I restore the old style of highlighting text--grey background behind black text? It's being highlighted, but I can't see it. Happening with Firefox and Thunderbird.

This happened when I more-or-less simultaneously updated to macOS Mojave (10.14.6}, Firefox 89, and is also happening with Thunderbird (but I can't tie it to any specific update).

Is this an issue with Firefox and Thunderbird, or with Mojave?

Hallo

Seit einigen Tage versuche ich die Suchfunktion in der Adressleiste auszuschalten.

Egal was ich mache, die Suche in der Adressleiste lässt sich nicht deaktivieren.

Wenn ich einen neuen Tab öffne, dann habe ich da ein Suchfeld. Möchte ich dort etwas eintippen springt, das einfach in die Adressleiste.

keyword.enabled habe ich auf false gestellt.

In den Einstellungen eine eigene Suchleiste.

Inhalte des Firefox-Startbildschirms ist eine eigene Suchleiste eingestellt. Und diese benutze ich zu 90 % und sonst die Suchleiste, aber niemals die Adressleiste.

Was kann ich tun?

Vielen Dank und Gruß Robert robert.jordan@gmx.at

I upgraded to Firefox v89/64bit. Now when I open a new tab Firefox forces me to use the address bar for searches. I can't find anything in 'Settings' that will let me change this. Maybe I've missed something obvious. Is there a way to turn this 'feature' off? Thanks in advance for any help provided.

Hi, my machine choked and died on the latest Windows update. I tried every trick I know, but eventually had to admit defeat and nuke'n'boot. Most' 'of my stuff was either backed up or kept on a non-OS drive, but I needed to reinstall Firefox. When I did, I found there is a limit to how many tabs Sync willl display at once from another device. That limit is 1,271 tabs, which is not all of mine - I'm pretty sure I had more than that open in a single one' 'of my seven open windows (though probably only the one window had that many).

Also, with the new Firefox update, while I can open all 1,271 at once, that just leads to Firefox crashing. When similar things happened in the past, I could open, say, fifty at a time, and kill Firefox's process every time it became too much for my computer, then reopen firefox with all those tabs open but not active, however with FF 89 I only seem to be able to open one or all.

To make matters worse, those 1,271 tabs I can see seem to be randomised each time, or at least randomly ordered, so I wouldn't even be able to methodically open all 1,271 with my usual method of killing firefox and reopening it.

Is there any way I can send the 1,271 straight to bookmarks, or open the entire session from the old install, or view more than the 1,271, or open the old synced tabs view, where I could open as many or as few as I wanted to, instead of all or (basically) nothing?

Thanks!

In the old firefox, I had the opportunity to share websites and f. e. send them from my laptop to my stationary computer. I think there were three dots ... next to the url. But that is gone. I used that a lot for websites that I needed to print out (my laptop isn't connected to the printer's vpn).

What now? I don't think I can use pocket for that, since that saves all the websites, I just need to send them once.

With the new update, the new tabs take too much space for my liking, so i tried to enable compact mode via `about:config` by setting `browser.compactmode.show` to true.

For me, that setting does not do anything as you can see in the screenshot that shows 2 different user profiles as comparison. Is this setting already broken 2 weeks after the redesign or does it still work for others?
