Hello everybody!

I just updated my firefox to the newest version - and I absolutely hate the new design. Is there any way to "keep" the newest version, but have the older design?

I know that installing the version before the design got updated would be a possibility, but for various reasons I would like to avoid doing that - at least if there is any other option. If not, I'll just have to do that I guess.

Help would be very much appreciated!

Greetings

So I got updated to version 89.0. I'm not entirely sure why we have to keep doing this. It looks different. Does it look better? Not really. Does it do something new that the previous version didn't do. Not that I can tell.

What it does do is scroll really badly. It's very jerky and it's giving me a headache. The previous version scrolled smoothly when I used the laptop's touch pad scroll section. (Like a wheel on a mouse but for a touch pad.)

I don't know why we have to keep "improving" things, without actually improving them and breaking what did work.

Is there any way to fix this? Other than Google Chrome?

Hello, I had just recieved the new redesign of Firefox on my system and so far I am loving every bit of it.

However, I am a person that frequently opens many, MANY tabs and likes to keep them organized by draging them around on the tab bar. Since the new redesign I can no longer move my tabs around or open new windows by detaching tabs. Is this on purpose and supposed to have been a "feature" with the redesign? I have tried reinstalling firefox as well without success in fixing the issue.

First I was stuck in an upgrade loop where Firefox would ask me to restart to install the upgrade but then isn't upgraded on restart. So I manually downloaded latest version from the website and installed it. Now after installing I lost my current session (opened tabs). I have enabled sync so I can still see the synced tabs in my Firefox account under my device, but I don't know how to open all tabs from a particular device.

How do I open all synced tabs from a particular device in Firefox 89 on macOS 11.3.1?

Is there any way to change the time format in most recent visit in Bookmarks from am/pm to 24 hour?

Preferably without having to upload new version. I used Canadian one but after the newest update I tried to go back to older version, there was a bit of mess and long story short I loaded US version instead of Ca and trying to fix by with Ca version forced me to create new profile and it's still in am/pm.

Would love to just go back to my old browser look, but if not, is there a way to: 1) Not have the "floating" tabs? In other words, have the tab outlines clearly showing? 2) I find it very annoying to see the "PLAYING" constantly popping-up in my tab when playing solitaire. Is there a way to disable that?

On 6-2-2021 the Firefox /browser was automatically updated (errgh!). Now, my tabs are all gone and the History is empty. They were not merely recreational or random. Please help. Thank you in advance!

I think this happens routinely. Can the Mozilla people prevent the problem in the first place? How can I tell the angst they cause their users? I see others begging for help with this problem.
