We are experiencing increasing frustration with gratuitous user interface changes in Firefox. As soon as we get used to the way something works, someone changes it with no conceivable benefit or reason.

Typical example is the disappearance of the history button. If a tab is accidentally closed, the old recently closed section under history quickly restored it.

Why has the Reload page button moved?

Is there a way to use the new 'engine' with the old interface?

I use Firefox to track my stock portfolio on my desktop PC with Windows 7. In the past I could click on a stock symbol and get information on that stock, including price graph for the day, 5-days, month, etc, and data on earnings, revenue, and analyst's recommendations. Now I still get the page for the stock, but the price graph analyst' recommendations and other data are missing. I downloaded the latest version of Firefox, but still no luck. I get the information on Chrome, but not on Firefox. The problem started about 2 weeks ago, near end of May. I hate to think that I may have to discard Firefox and switch to Chrome.

On my laptop with Windows 10 Firefox works well and provides all the stock data that are missing on my PC.

Back in the days when I used Firefox and pressed Ctrl+D the web page was bookmarked in the Bookmark Menu. Now when I press Ctrl+D the web page is bookmarked in Other Bookmarks.

I don't like this and you should change it back. Or how do I do to solve this?

The firefox icon initially is orange/red blue, but after a couple of weeks loses all its colour and becomes grey. It is like this for all new tabs I open after this. When I refresh firefox the colour usually returns, and if I uninstall and reinstall the fox has its colour back. Does this loss of colour indicate something is going on eg I have been hijacked, or the extensions I have are incompatible, or?

I installed FVD speeddial to customize my new tabs/homepage and it first it ran fine. But then a few days ago whenever I tried to change the image displayed on dial (bookmark) it would just show a white square / rectangle. No matter what I set it to (auto preview etc.) this is all it would display. Now it's doing this for everything. I even uninstalled and tried the add-on New Tab Tools instead but am having the same problem.

This has happened for the third time. Every time I install Mozilla Firefox, it stops functioning properly after a week of use. It either stops responding in the middle of browsing or it crashes completely only to restart after arduous effort.

I deleted the "Recommended by Pocket" page after viewing a disturbing image last night--one that appeared to violate someone's human rights.

I am not sitting here waiting for a psychopath to send me more kill shots. I have much better things to do with my life---even staring at a blank wall would be better than viewing kill shots.

Does this "pocket" news frequently violate basic human rights or is this some saboteur on my iMac?

I haven't owned a cell phone since 2012 for this very reason. No texting since 2008 (not that I ever wrote much) No personal phone calls! No friends since 1995! I don't know the neighbors!

with new version of Wndows Pro 10 and version 60.0 of firefox I am having problems when trying to scroll on a website,. Cursor freezes for 2-3 seconds at a time, unfreezes for same 2-3 second time period, then keeps repeating. I had same problem when Firefox 57.0 came out, I went back to last update version of 56 and that solved problem. How do I fix this in 60.0 or should I go back to 56? I need to save all bookmarks if I go back. Will this be an issue?
