Does Firefox 90 fully respect the default desktop theme and show tab divider lines?

When version 89.2 rolled out, I was highly displeased by the fact that the default theme now no longer properly reflected the Windows theme settings (extremely noticeable on my end, since I use the Windows Classic theme with customized "3D object" colors); this defect had already affected the options dropdown but had now spread to the address/navigation bar, bookmarks toolbar, and scrollbar. This was extremely annoying, especially since none of the add-on themes can properly duplicate that aesthetic function. One of the things I liked about Firefox was that unlike Chrome, Opera, and Edge... it actually still respected the Windows theme settings (which programs like browsers should do by default). And now, that prized trait had been inexplicably and insensibly discarded.

I was further displeased by the removal of the dividing lines between tabs. This made Firefox substantially harder for me to use, almost headache-inducingly so. Whoever you have testing these changes before rollout - if anyone - should be replaced, because this was a massive accessibility downgrade. Unacceptably so.

These changes were so frustrating and ugly, and made the browser so much more difficult for me to use, that I reverted to version 88 and continue to remain on that version.

Does version 90 resolve these issues? If it does, I'll update. But if not.... then in my opinion it should be axed and you should cease pushing it in favor of working on a new version that does fix these poor decisions. And I'll be sticking to version 88 until that happens.

Please continue here: [/questions/1346320]
When I bring up the Firefox browser the page has macro blocking as best as I can describe it on the home page, and also when I bring up website pages. Portions of the page block out periodically during all sessions, the update didn't fix anything with my experience. I've turned off hardware acceleration, turned off all extensions as was prescribed and the problem persists and I don't know what else I can do. I have stopped using Firefox as my default browser for the reasons stated and I haven't found any solutions on the forums.

Hi ALL In the new Firefox all bookmarks have lost their specific icon. Now there is only one icon for all bookmarks, a globe! This is extremely annoying, because with the icons you could find the address you were looking for very quickly. Why did Firefox get rid of this feature? How can I fix this? Thank you. Dani

I have an Apache instance that's configured to use KerberosOrBasic authentication. Virtually all the users are Windows users on the LAN and they connect using Kerberos. I have one Linux user who is connecting via VPN. He should be getting a login prompt, but it goes immediately to: Authorization Required Unauthorized - authentication failed.

It appears Apache is sending to correct response, but FF isn't prompting for login. Is there some browser config required?

TIA

I was running the latest Firefox version also on my WIN10 machine. I was trying to register on AT&T forums. Every time I tried to register using my Firefox browser, I got an error message, something like 'Error, please try again later'. I wasted SO MUCH TIME WITH FIREFOX, trying to register on the AT&T forums. ARRGH! So I decided to try another browser. My very first attempt to register using the WIN10 built-in MS Edge browser worked perfectly. The puzzle picture test appeared to confirm I was a real user. I clicked on the correct squares and my registration went thru immediately. WHY DID THIS HAPPEN? Now I am wondering how many other sites have I had trouble with, just because of FIREFOX?

I'd been browsing the web for a while today when Firefox randomly showed a message by the address bar, saying:

"Start your search in the address bar to see suggestions from Google and your browsing history. Okay, Got It."

What is this message trying to say?

Is it to inform me that searches can now be performed in the address bar? That feature has been around for like 10 years!

Is it a plea for me to stop using the search bar?

Is it a tip for new users who don't know what the address bar can do? If so, why am I seeing it when I've been using Firefox nearly 20 years.

And what does the word "start" mean in this context? That's confusing.

And what does my browsing history have to do with performing a web search? Searching the web and searching history are two completely unrelated tasks with nothing in common other than the fact that the address bar provides access to both.

I always prefer to download updates myself, to then upload each to VirusTotal.com to see what the results are from the many scanners VT uses, before installing any software obtained from over the Internet. VT always begins the upload to the VT website by checking for a hash and this worked prior to Firefox 91.0.x, but has failed for all three updates since the last version before 91.0, so failing for 91.0, 91.0.1 and 91.0.2. The same thing also happens with Thunderbird 91.0.1 from Thunderbird.net, adding this note in case you can communicate regularly with the TBird team.

I'm glad to do the downloads, verifications and installs myself, for if anything ever goes wrong, then I have the downloaded installers to just re-install Ffx. But given that a hash isn't found for the downloaded 91.0.x updates, then I of course wonder what Mozilla is using when performing automatic updates. After all, what we download surely should be what Mozilla uses as well. So, I'll definitely stick to my preferred way of doing updates and definitely hope that this missing hash problem gets corrected very soon.

My current browser is still 90.0.2. It definitely is a "bit" buggy, flaky, often quite annoyingly so, but its hash was found and is still found by VT, so ....
