I just upgraded to Firefox 89.0.2 from a very old version of Firefox and noticed that the Open Tabs drop-down is missing. This is the symbol that appeared on the far right end of the open tabs that allowed me to see all of the open tabs in a drop down list with the entire tab name showing. How can I get this back?

[Firefox 89] Unusable after Update due to Large Blank Rectangle on Top of Websites

System Elementary OS 5.1 (Ubuntu 18.04) Nvidia 465 driver

Tried with Firefox from Ubuntu repos and Flathub

Problem Since the update, I have this rectangle (see picture) on all websites, even the settings. This makes Firefox unusable.

What I already tried

  1. Numbered list item Started Firefox in Troubleshoot-Mode, where everything works normal. Nice.
  2. Numbered list item EDIT: I also tried the "Refresh Firefox" option, with no success
  3. Numbered list item I purged the Firefox install and removed all configs, addons etc. on disk (removed /usr/lib/mozilla, ~/.mozilla, /etc/firefox). Sadly, the Problem is still there.

So it works in Troubleshoot-Mode with my personalized Firefox version as well as a clean install, but never outside of Troubleshoot-Mode.

Question As a clean Firefox (see above) seems to work as intended, how do I reproduce this behavior outside of Troubleshoot-Mode? What changes between Troubleshoot-Mode and regular mode? Any advice?

My old computer crashed but I have access to the entire hard drive on my new laptop. I'd like to restore Firefox on the new laptop exactly as it was on the old laptop (bookmarks, tabs, etc.). All of the help articles talk about restoring from a backup, but I never made a backup since I obviously didn't know my computer was going to crash. Which files do I need to access from old hard drive and move to my new hard drive so that everything looks the same as before? Any help would be appreciated.

Under an "about:profiles" profile, selecting the "Open Directory" button opens my Linux "Document Viewer" with an "Unable…" warning; expected because that's not what Document Viewer is for.

This could be exactly as predicted in my preferences, but I didn't find any means to redirect that button action at a different helper. I expected it to routinely use my default file manager application and this was a surprise. All I could find searching for the issue focuses on URLs which isn't my problem; I can enter (or copy/paste) the displayed path beside that button okay as "file:///…," so I can call that the workaround.

How is this button action set? Is it a simple thing buried somewhere in the settings?

I downloaded Firefox 89.0.1 via Microsoft Edge from the regular mozilla.org site.

I was redirected to this site after the download started: https://cdn.stubdownloader.services.mozilla.com/builds/firefox-stub/de/win/[...]/Firefox%20Installer.exe

I was confused when I saw, that the sha256 checksum mismatched with the one in the repository. Also after multiply downloads from the mentioned site, I recognized all installation files had different checksums.

Is this a bug or a malicious firefox download? Or smth else?

Thanks in advance.

I've managed multiple profiles, and used the profile manager for years.

Usually, when I want to update/replace a session from one profile to another, these are the files I transfer.

When I launch the profile, it should open to the same tab as in the previous profile, and the tab count should be the same. That is, until today.

No matter what I try with the new profile, the same old session keeps coming up.

Dear Firefox community, I do not know why you are not solving your browser-short time memory loss problem! When I download a video / file, the internet is disconnected in the middle, and it takes a while to connect, then the download starts again from 0%! It wastes both my time and the internet. If the power connection is disconnected while downloading again - I don't get any backup of that file when I connect to the internet after the power connection is restored ...! However, other browsers have this advantage. I like Firefox a lot, but this short time memory loss system bothers me a lot. I hope to fix this issue in the next update.
