as a dev, and using FF DevEd, i use `console.log({someObject})` often. and i'm always having to twirl open the results to see the object properties and values. is there an option to have this done automatically? can we choose tiers of expansion? for me, this would save a TON of time mousing back and forth.

running FF DevEd 87.0b8. since this last update, i see that the console now expands not only the output, but also the line editor at the bottom. it no longer stays at the bottom as one line, it now scales in proportion to the rest of the console and often obscures important information. it cannot be dragged back to one line height either. the only solution is to pop it to the left and then back down; but even then, it will keep scaling again when you change the size of the DevTools window. how can this be fixed?

sidenote: how can the multi-line editor be moved to the right side? this would at least be a decent workaround until this bug can be fixed.

When syncing between devices, the location of bookmarks in subfolders is not remembered

I use Firefox on 3 devices: - a PC at home (Win 10, FF standard instalation), - an Android phone (Xiaomi Mi 9T) - a PC at work (Win7) with the Firefox portable version.

I have the latest, stable, up-to-date versions of Firefox on all my devices.

The problem is when I save a bookmark on one of the computers at work or at home, and then the devices synchronize. Bookmarks between computers do not remember their position in the bookmark folders and are saved in the main folder.

I have already performed all the steps based on the instructions in this article, but the problem persists. ([https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/que.../1270667])

Hello there, two days ago the Google Calendar Widget inside the Gmail page stopped working in my Firefox Dev (version 88.0b2). I ignored that because I could continue to send and receive mails and I was thinkin it was a google server problem. Today I cleared cache and cookies to make a clean start, just to try if that could restore the Calendar Widget. Of course I did know that would have logged me out. Now it's impossible to log in in any Google Service because the login pagin is stuck right after I enter my email address! The console output shows warnings and a CORS error, as you can see in the screenshot. My browser is localized in italian, but the errors should be comprehensible anyway.

I can log in without problems with Chrome, but not with Firefox.

What's happening? My Firefox Dev version is bugged?

Toolbar extensions/add-ons no longer accept touchscreen input

Hello, I've been having this problem when I tap extensions on the toolbar, their small pop-up windows appear in the top-right but when I tap on the buttons in that window, the pop-up disappears instead of accepting my touch input to one of its buttons, it used to accept touch input fine, but no longer does

I've tried refreshing Firefox, and then removing prefs.js in case I messed with any of the about:config settings but it was to no avail, and I've even tried upgrading to Firefox Beta but same problem persists in beta, disabling all the extensions except one still doesn't allow add-ons to accept my touch input.

To be clear, the touch input works on Firefox's inherent buttons in the toolbar, like Bookmarks, History, Downloads, even the Pocket widget and three dots beside it, but any external extensions I install from addons.mozilla site no longer accept the input, and my touch input works fine in Chrome browser, but I like to use both browsers.

Firefox appears to have just updated. Now my bookmarks list is so long I have to scroll down to see everything. It looks like everything has been spaced out further, which I hate. It takes up was too much space. They were probably going for a more elegant, less cluttered look, but it just ended up making things more aggravating for me. There should be a way to adjust or turn off the spacing feature. Any suggestions?

I have working "firefox developer" with "firefox-dev" profile. I want to migrate to stable "firefox", but release firefox show message

You've launched an older version of Firefox

Using an older version of Firefox can corrupt bookmarks and browsing history already saved to an existing Firefox profile. To protect your information, create a new profile for this installation of Firefox.

so what can i do to migrate? is it possible to migrate to profile with lower firefox version?

My Firefox just updated to version 89.00b3 this morning, and now my Gmail messages look terrible and are not rendering properly.

Newsletters from the Washington Post, Baltimore Sun and Next Door are not formatting correctly, with the text extending as a single line off the screen. Some lines don't start at the left edge, but don't begin until three-quarters across the window. A title line that should be centered and word-wrapped is displayed as a centered single line, with the left and right portions cut off by the window and not visible.

These same messages appear fine in Chrome, and Firefox had no problems yesterday, so it must be the update that 'broke' HTML rendering of the newsletters.

I'm currently on firefox developer edition with the system theme. I've just now upgraded to latest version (v. 89.0b3 64 bit).

Everything is fine except the tab title of the current tab. The color is right but the shape is wrong. It should be rectangular but instead all four corners are rounded. Moreover, it's not connected to the rest of the page so there is a gap between the background color of the current tab (grey) and the background color of the page (black) making the whole thing look like it's floating around the browser space (see attached screenshot).

I've also noted that the top bar, the ones containing the title tabs and the main icons (close, enlarge, minimize) has become huge!

So my questions are:

- Is there a way to have rectangular tab titles again? If not possible through options, is there an add-on I can use? I search the add-ons page but the themes I found are for changing colors, they do nothing for the shape of the tabs. - How can I shrink the top bar?

Thanks

Meanwhile, we know that Mozilla doesn't give a damn about anyone else's privacy either. This is partly due to continuous data sharing with Google and so on. Also the fact that Mozilla has no contact possibilities, they prefer not to get feedback apparently, shows that they don't care about the customer.

But now it gets even worse, the Nightly version now starts up automatically (without actually opening) with Windows. And immediately wants to share data with third party servers, I can see from the notification of my firewall. How can I turn this off?

And the new layout, with all its unnecessary extra space, doesn't look good at all. Yet another failure of Mozilla. It is that there is no better browser, but otherwise...

The latest update 89.0b3 broke my entire workflow and actually leaves me wondering, if programmers at Mozilla never search the web for errors - am I the only one getting errors during compile time? It's now nearly impossible to use Firefox efficiently to search for errors during coding. As can be seen in your press screenshots (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/about-new-tab-page) there used to be a "Search the web" bar on the new tab page in addition to the "Search or enter web address" URL bar. As their descriptions say, the search bar always triggered a web search - this is a feature i regularly used (~50 times on a work day), which has now been removed. Why? Because Firefox often recognizes my search queries as keywords to trigger the system handler, because they contain a ":". This is often the case with error messages of compilers, as in "ImportError: cannot import name". Instead, both bars show the same description "Search or enter web address" and work the same. Please tell me, how can I restore my search-only-bar, or is a bug report needed to revert changes/introduce a configuration option?
