Hi,

First of all, I should ask: Is there a such feature gained with settings or addons that highlights my previous tab, that I didn't closed, but moved from to current tab?

For example: I have 20 tabs opened. And I'm lurking between them so I need to know what was the previous tab where I was before moved to the current tab.

If this feature does not exists I kindly offer to implement it.

Thanks

Readability of Tabs in Version 89

Updated to version 89 and am not pleased with the visual/graphic interface changes. The tabs are very difficult to read. The new graphic layout fails to clearly identify each tab as a distinct entity or thing to be selected. The text just looks like a long string of text and in some instances of long names on a tab the text just fades away to nothingness.

Please make each tab a "distinct thing by creating a different colored edge on three (3) sides of the tab. Or perhaps have 3 levels of lightening/darkening the table to differentiate it from the background on which it is displayed.

Does the development team have a graphic designer and/or have the changes reviewed by a group of graphic designers?

Please change this please or put the user in charge of how they want it displayed.

So i updated Firefox, and now the Tabs are not being shown at the top, in fact they are at the bottom but i can only see and select them when i go to customize toolbar, so how do i fix this and move them back to where they were?

Also seems i can't add a new tab unless i open a link in new tab.

images show what i mean in how i can only see other tabs in customize toolbars and the other when its not in customize

All of a suddenly my webpages are about 2" square. I can force them to zoom, or stretch them but I'd really like to skip these steps and have things back the way they were before the latest update. I've tried several suggestions to no avail. Once fully opened, the rest all open fine. Anyone? TIA Alexa

Subject says it all. "How to revert to 'browser.tabs.ontop=false' functionality in Firefox 89.x?" I hate the Proton layout where tabs are now positioned at the top. I want to revert to what I had before — via an add-on, I think — because the new style creates visual dissonance. I HATE the new style. I want a layout that does not do my head in. I do not care that someone(s) in the development team thinks tabs.ontop is better; it is not better for me.

Hi all,

when opening a new tab, i activated the Google Search engine to search for content, yet when i start typing in that Google Search, the cursor immediately jumps into the address bar and searches there (which i dont want of course, this breaks the search engine altogether).

Is there a way to make the Search engine work and not let the cursor go into the address bar? Even copy and paste into the Search engine doesnt work anymore.

Regards

Tab placement & behavior Firefox 90

Help! In Firefox 89 (as in all previous) all open tabs lined up at the top (first screen shot). When I updated to 90, they disappeared and only one (current) tab shows up at bottom right (second screen shot). I cannot find a way to see all open tabs as before - only when I close the current tab will the entire lineup of open tabs show for a moment and then go back to the single current open tab. I can't work this way and it's driving me crazy. I've searched online, tried changing settings in about:config and nothing seems to want to put all open tabs back up top where they were. What am I missing? (More - I am trying to upload a screen shot and just get the spinning gear. The file is below the upload size limit. I'm going to try submitting this anyway.)

More of a suggestion, Context Menu option to open tab in new window

So, if I want to open a tab that exists in my current open Firefox to a new window, or a new private window(Good for accessing an alt account without logging out a main account), I have to right-click the taskbar icon for it, or the desktop icon, firefox's settings menu, or a keypress; navigate to the page, and log in.

It would be super convenient to send a tab to a new window or private window from right-clicking the desired tab, and selecting an option. Currently, (90.0..1), there is just a send to container option, which doesn't exactly accomplish what I am looking for.

This is purely QoL, but it would speed things up quite a bit.

1. Firefox was a bit sluggish, so I closed it from Task Manager, expecting to be given the option to restore the session as usual, I wasn't, couldn't restore it from the History menu and it wasn't there in the sessionstore-backups folder either. 2. Now each tab has its own window.

So, the tabs changed a while back. I went and used the workaround. The workaround is now Dead. Here are my thoughts on the current design (which, for full clearance, I find useless and abhorrent)

1. Tab separation - not clear. There is no clear way to differentiate tabs from each other without hovering over them. I preferred the old look for this. 2. Tab size - Too tall. I don't need that many pixels of useless empty space. I preferred the old look for this. 3. Pinned tab size - Too much empty space. They now take more space than they used to. I had them pinned for a reason, and may now have to unpin some. Preferred old design for this. 4. Rounded corners - I will probably get used to this, but I do not like it. Again, preferred the old design for this. 5. Tab "scrolling speed" - Too fast/too many tabs at one. Two/three was enough for me. I will probably get used to this, but still prefer old design. 6. Can't close a tab without selecting it - While sometimes I accidentally closed a tab, it was less of a problem than being unable to close a tab without navigating to it. Unnecessary time sink.

Overall - old design is better. I've seen statements of "better tabs" or whatever, but those statements don't change the fact that workflow is slowed, and everything feels floaty and spacey.

'What am I asking for?' Very simple. Options. Allow users to choose their preference without difficult workarounds involving code and actually needing to know how to do complicated things like that. A lot of people like the old look. I doubt it to be impossible to offer those as selectable options. That way you, Firefox, can still offer the new tab look, but also please those who do not want it, are unable to use it, or whatever reason a user might have for reverting back to that old look.

Do not force users into a "new, sleek, modern" look. It may be "sleek", but it is nigh unusable to some.
