My FF and my wife's FF has been updated on 2 laptops (V. 89.0 64-Bit), introducing the new themes. Now when I modify my theme, the other laptop takes over the same theme automomously. It seems to be coupled somehow - how can this be?

Hello. Does anyone know how to set up Firefox to open PDFs automatically without this little screen popping up? To me, automatically means to just opens with Adobe, but I still keep getting this screen - which I don’t want. The fewer the steps/clicks I have to do the better. Thanks in advance. Using a Windows 10 Home Edition Desktop Firefox Version 9.0

I don't really have a question. I have looked on the Mozilla site for a place to email the developers. I'm not happy with the new version of Firefox (attached) I have to go into History and restore tabs every time I restart my computer, I like to have many tabs continuously open so this doesn't suit me at all. Also the new search function at the top of the screen in the typical URL box is not nice, I preferred when the search was in a box in the middle of the screen and suggestions popped up when you start typing a search. Suggestions don't pop up in the new Firefox version.

I really enjoy Firefox and have been using it many years, I just wanted to share my opinions of the new version.

I cannot disable google document viewer in Google Drive. Every time I go to open a recently downloaded PDFs in Google Drive, it invokes Document Viewer unless I specifically right click and tell it to open with Acrobat. I have disabled everything thing I know in both Chrome and Firefox, cleared the caches, rebooted, and the default behavior persists. Worse, the Document Viewer REQUIRES a complicated, infuriating sign in process that has only worked ONCE in dozens of sign in attempts. Please help with this.

Hello Lovely Firefox Volunteers,

I hope this email finds you well. I am a long-time user and fan of Firefox, and other open source projects. Firefox is a fantastic internet browser!

Having said that, I was shocked and dismayed at what I encountered today. I was doing some tests for screen-reader usability on a website, and I came across the following:

Image 1 (attached): Advertisement of Screen-Reader Add-Ons for Firefox

Image 2 (attached): No Screen-Reader Add-Ons for Firefox are Available

The Firefox team is advertising screen-reader add-ons for Firefox, which don't seem to exist. I don't think the recommendation here should be: take down the advertisement for the Firefox native screen-reader add-ons/link to them, these seem to be really important for accessibility, and the Firefox team seems to acknowledge this. :)

There is some other missing piece - maybe there are Screen-reader add-ons for Firefox, and they aren't being linked to? Maybe the wrong tag is being used? (The auto tag that is used in the link is "screen reader"). Maybe there aren't any, and this is an area that needs some additional attention?

Anyway, I just thought I should bring this to your attention as making our internet accessible to people living with blindness and loss of sight is extremely important.

Sincerely, Katie

How do I revert the latest version to the pre 89.0 look? Nothing annoys me more then when developers change the design or UI of a product and don't give users the option to customize or revert the design to something they have been using successfully for years. Tabs above the bar now? Blank backgrounds? This new design is NOT better for me, not more efficient and most certainly not easier on my eyes. You changed the menu layout making it more difficult to find the Customize button, added useless new icons to my toolbar. This just ruined my night, and I am most certainly not going to update the browser on my work computer. You're making me have to use Edge!

Devs: STOP. CHANGING. THE. UI!

I don't know if it's a need to mark your territory, or some marketing major blathering about "holistic new user experience paradigms"--and I put up with the stupid move to tabs on top (because apparently some dev felt that what Firefox users really wanted was Chrome!)--but this is a hideous, steaming turd.

'Oh no, showing the 'close tab' icon and clearly delineating between tabs interrupts the synergistic flow of the UI! Let's make the tabs one disgusting, unreadable blur from left to right! Also, let's make them take up more real estate on the screen, because people have higher resolution screens now--we can totally dominate the upper quarter! Oh, and force the change to the new layout, don't give people an option to revert--and don't warn them, either! EVERYONE MUST SEE OUR MAJESTIC, PERFECT, UNASSAILABLE VISION! Surely that won't confuse TF out of a bunch of grandparents whose hapless children/grandchildren will have to completely re-explain, multiple times, how to get to Facebook!'

Rolled back to 88.01, went through the "new profile" crap you put in to discourage rollback/cover for poor programming, and disabled automatic updates. Barring a major, earth-shattering security vuln, I'm done updating. And when that time comes, I'll find another browser.

Posting here because they've stopped soliciting feedback--probably because they know they've unleashed a sloppy splattered dook onto the world and they're tired of being screamed at.

The recent update to the Firefox browser on my Mac now defaults to the search bar at the top of the page as I type and provides a stream of unhelpful suggestions. Previously I was able to type in what I was looking for in the Firefox search bar in the middle of the screen unhindered until I had completed the sentence and then press search. I would like to reset it back to that. I have tried to change it via Preferences but it didn't work. Thanks for any help. Trekker.

Until the last FF release (99), when I downloaded files from my bank for MSMoney FF would apply the action to use the MS Money import handler. Not anymore. FF will now only save the file. Even if I choose "always ask" it still just saves the file - never asks what to do with it (save or open with). Please fix this. It's worked fine for decades and now doesn't work at all. I tried adding images to show what happens but the ones that show what FF is doing and the FF settings won't upload. Only the banking download page images will upload. They just show that I pick MSMoney as the download format.

I have 2 questions after the upgrade ( If that is what they call it). #1. Getting all my apps re-setup , I noticed that some were not showing up on the bar to the right of my search bar. #2. When I open FF it only opens with a half page on the left. This next jusy a polite general question. After the uproar about fvd suspension, why did FF feel the need to do it again? What I mean is why did they wipe out All my apps and deleted other programs I had BOUGHT and now having trouble getting downloaded again when they were working perfectly before 100? Are these programs also considered "Dangerous". Sorry. Could you give me an approved FF alternative to FVD and I don't mean this piece of garbage that is on your web page. You wanna throw something against the screen every time you look at it.; UGLY!!!!
