I REALLY dislike the new bookmark pull-down feature, which has larger fonts and far too much space between bookmarks. Now I have to scroll (for which I can't use the mouse) to get to the bottom of a long bookmark list. I prefer older versions.

How may I change the appearance of this feature?

Hello there,

So, my issue is that some websites, only on Firefox, are logging me out as soon as I enter my mail + PW.

Those are the right ones for sure, and I tried in Troubleshoot mode to see if the issue persists, and it does.

Hence my request here, did someone encounter the same problem and managed to fix it? If you have any idea about what's worth trying, I'm all ears.

My page action buttons are missing - the 3 little dots that allow me to share, print, etc.

I'm on a Macbook Pro, latest software, latest Firefox, signed in to my Firefox account. I've also reset all defaults in toolbars.

Just gone - disappeared.

Does anyone have a solution to reset this?

I just started with 89.0 and instead of the horrid 15% of CPU that 88 used it now uses 30%. That's with an enormous amount of windows (not tabs) open, but most are limited by NoScript until I temp permit them. FX Task Manager shows very little usage, so apparently no ill behaved sites. AAR 30% of an i7 with many gigs of memory is intolerable. Even the 15% was heating up the CPU.

So I'll take "some" CPU heating vs. "massive" by rolling back to 88.0.1. By the way, whatever keeps changing my option from manually approved updates to automatic, thank you for doing that at times without asking me first.

The problem is that now when I start 88.0.1 it insists on a new profile "for my own protection". But I want the old profile, with hundreds of bookmarks and dozens or hundreds of session windows from my last session, and add-ins ... for example right how I don't have NoScript and don't have time to deal with that. I tried to get around the "we're just helping you" insistence on a new profile, by copying a week-old backup over C:\Users\Bill\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\hbouy3r1.default\sessionstore.jsonlz4 and starting but it still insists. I guess that's just sessions, not the whole profile.

Can I defeat the prohibition against using the old profile, or failing that, can I import or merge the old profile in? Keep in mind that the "old" profile has been modified by having started 89. I wish now that I had never selected the old profile when I began 89 (I always prompt for profile). (But, heck, I didn't even KNOW I was going to a new version. It auto-updated, and when I started FX, and it seems to have "updated" the old profile making it now unusable for a prior version).

Or can I go to a backup and copy the tree of C:\Users\Bill\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\OldProfile\ and start FX again with 88.0.1? BTW I assume that is the version I was on a week ago.

Just updated FF to 88.0.

  • Customize*, which used to be under *Options* is missing from menu.

Not under More Tools, either.

I will reserve judgment on the new version. Don't expect these minor inconveniences.

Thank you.

Hello, I've been able to take screenshots, one of my favorite features, and the selection to do so was located by tapping on the 3 dots in the browser bar. Today I made the selection to take a screenshot and the option was not there.

I followed the instructions from earlier posts on how to check to see if the option was True or False and in the area that showed me if it was still available. They were correct.

Is there any other reason why that choice would not be there?

Firefox menu iconography

After the Firefox upgrade to version 89, the icons disappeared from the menu. When I look at the changes page, I see that they have been specifically removed. In my case, the functionality of the Firefox menu has been severely compromised by losing those icons. So far, I’ve used those icons as a mechanism for faster navigation between different points. Because it is faster to recognize a single icon (character) than to read text. In the past, toolbar items overlapped menu items with icons. And now not. Not only that, the layout of the menu items has changed.

My suggestion would be to return the icons. And make them show / hide through settings.


I am not an English speaker, so I apologize if there are various errors in the text.

Hello, all.

This is not a question but a pointer for those who have successfully been using userChrome.css to put the tabs where they belong, below the Bookmarks bar. :-)

If you used a userChrome.css solution such as that presented in threads like the support article "tabs on bottom release 72.0.1" (full disclosure, that is my solution), then you just need to add to the #TabsToolbar section one line:

top: var(--uc-titlebar-padding,86px);

You can play with the "86px" until you have the tabs where you like them. Depending upon my profile and other CSS options, I have to move that a few pixels up or down to get it looking just right.

Saying I do not like the lack of lines separating the tabs is an understatement. I don't know why but it is driving me nuts and triggering my anxiety and I'm not someone that would normally say stuff like that but it is.

Is there a way to make the tabs look like they used to with clear black lines between each tab?!?

I used to right click within a website to display a separate window which f.e. showed all the media that is on that website. I don't know what the option is called as it doesn't exist anymore in the currect version (88.0), so I can't lookup and I used the dutch version. I really used that function, the developers window is not what I mean and far more complicated.

When I right click on an image in Firefox, I've always been able to select "view image info". This is very helpful, but now it appears to be gone in latest Developer edition. Do others see the same. If so, why was it removed? It's still there in the regular version of Firefox.
