whenever I create a bookmark and the window opens to give it a name, or when opening my download's drop down window they pop-up in un-readable areas of my screen i.e. I have an eyefinity system, so they are opening up right smack in the middle of my monitor bezels :( highly frustrating, I stuck with firefox 20(something) for the longest time on account of the new firefox UI changes, and it's just been nothing but a gigantic pain to get it working smoothly again.

anyhow, if you know what I could do or could recommend an add-on I be be *extremely* grateful!

Drop-down lists are double spaced in FF 52.2. They were fine in V45.9. Can this be fixed? I can send a screen capture if thay will help.

Has anyone else run into a problem with drop-downs after moving to ESR 52.2? We had no problems on the previous version 45.9. After the update to 52.2 the lists in our drop-downs are now double spaced. The same drop-down is also fine in Internet Explorer and Chrome. We believe this is also causing issues when doing Print to PDF on some other forms.

How do I make the toolbars smaller? Since upgrading to the latest version, they are twice as tall as they used to be. The text in them is still a reasonable size but the toolbars take up twice the vertical space they used to. This has nothing to do with the size of the page I'm viewing so Ctrl+ or Ctgrl- has no effect.

Thanks for any help. Attached is a screen shot showing the wasted space at the top of my screen with the new toolbars.

How to Disable Quick Find Hotkeys (" ' " and "/")?

Problem:

Unable to disable/modify default Quick Find keybindings (the apostrophe key and the forward slash key).

Attempted (and Failed) Solutions:

(1) Not able to use Murphy's solution (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1215667), because there is no 'Options' subheading in my 3-bar drop-down menu and I am otherwise unable to find a 'Browsing' subheading.

(2) Not able to use cor-el's solution (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/984845), because the modification suggested is no longer supported by my version of Firefox (61.0.1 (64-bit) on Linux Xenial).

(3) Not able to use suggestion at https://techdows.com/2018/06/disable-quick-find-firefox.html, because ‘accessibility.typeaheadfind.manual‘ preference is not listed. Toggling value of 'accessibility.typeaheadfind', 'accessibility.typeaheadfind.flashBar', and 'accessibility.typeaheadfind.linksonly' did not disable Quick Find after restarting Firefox.

(4) I also tried adding the preference 'searchkeys.disable.all' to 'about:config' and setting its boolean value to 'true' (I am unable to recall source of this suggestion), but it also did not work.

Your help is greatly appreciated! Thank you in advance for your time and effort!

I used to use an add-on for TAB management in older Firefox versions, because the way Firefox handles tab-configuration is generally horrid. I had hoped that would be fixed in the latest version, but it is NOT. If the Firefox team prides itself on delivering a fast and user-friendly browser, why can't it allow users to configure tabs :

-where they are created (at the end, at the beginning, right next to the actual tab, on the right or left of the actual tab) -whether a new tab can be created with a double click on the titlebar, or right-clicking the titlebar or an existing tab -whether we want a list of followed tabs and/or history or not -to show only right-menu options for tab-management that I need / want OR to add menu options I'd like for tab-management

Right now my experience of how tabs react, is downright irritating and inconsistent (and if has guided me more than once to the about:config page in a desperate attempt to make tabs at the very least consistent) I love using Firefox (it all started with Netscape really) and I wouldn't use any other browser if possible, but, guys and girls... please fix the usability and flexibility of tabs... it would make firefox the right tool for EVERY browsing job Thanks

For the life of me I can't figure out why you change things that are clearly working. Like changing the tabs to black a few updates ago. They are harder to see now.

I tried to bookmark a page and when I did I couldn't find the folder that I normally put it into. I can't find any of my folders. Please go back to the way you had it. It was simple and easy. This is just too complicated.

Firefox 62 visual appearance: The active tab looks like it is _behind_ the tabs next to it.

The active one of several tabs looks like it is recessed between his neighbouring tabs. Frequently I close the tab next to it in an attempt to close the active tab. This is quite annoying, as I can not get used to it, still. I am a computer user since the early 1980s and I usually avoid such mistakes, easily. Apparently this detail of the current interface design is counterintuitive and would benefit from a gentle refinement.

However, I would like to ask for the motivation of this change in style (please excuse the wording, as I am not a native speaker of English). Probably I will get used to it if only I knew the underlying design rule.

(Firefox 62.0 with Mac OS X 10.13.6)

I have windows 7 Professional. When I click the star, I am offered an option to save the link in the Other Bookmarks folder. If I click the drop-down arrow, I am offered 3 choices, Bookmarks Toolbar, Bookmarks Menu, or Other Bookmarks. Sometimes I am offered Choose. If I click either of the first two, I am asked for tags. If I click Choose, I am dumped into one of these choices. How do I see my bookmarks and choose one? Thank you.

Before the Quantum release, I would right click the mouse, click the star and the bookmark menu would appear with the most used folder list. Now, this behavior has changed to only drop you at the top level of the bookmark tree. Yes, I know I can use the bookmark icon on the toolbar, That is not as convenient as right clicking the mouse. PLEASE stop degrading the UI. how can I restore the old mouse behavior?

Privacy and security setting require too much time and too much to have to learn just secure access to the Internet? Why don't you get it? Firefox users need to have default suites of security setting from which to choose. Examples: Maximum Security: High Security: Medium Security: Low security: Roll my own by picking and choosing.

Clicking on any of these security categories should list what is included and maybe an option to change something.

Once an option is chosen, subsequent changes and updates to features within that option should be automated and a 'What's new/changed in the chosen security category be added within security updates emails.

As it is I have to spend hours figuring what alll this stuff means just to get security internet acces via a Firefox - not that other are better.
