Hello to whom it may concern: Two days ago my Firefox Browser was updated for my automatically, to 75.0(64-Bit). But today I need to reboot my computer due to things getting slow. Once I rebooted I had noticed when I had opened Outlook Email in my Firefox Browser the "Junk E-mail Folder" had disappeared. I immediately went to my standby browser on 'Edge' and checked to see if things had also changed on my Outlook E-mail account, it was all good nothing missing or changed. I totally only use Firefox Browser it is the only browser I trust and know that protects me(plus Firefox is so much faster). I do hope this issue can be fixed fast, since I do get important e-mails that end up in my Junk e-mail folder I need to have access to. Kindest regards, Milton

It now becomes bigger when you click on it or open a new tab, which is getting in the way of my toolbar. Is there a way to turn this feature off, and revert to the previous behavior (where it did not change size when clicked on or opened in a new tab?)

I know this seems like a small thing, but it's majorly getting in the way of me using my toolbar like I have in the past. To the point where I'm considering going back to Chrome. Please advise!

I've changed the settings found in this thread to remove the suggestions: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1283813

I also want to revert the stupid focus effect on the search bar. This is a classic case of "don't fix what isn't broken". I'd love to know if the people making these decisions at Mozilla actually use their product. From my experience in large orgs with product owners, I'd bet my entire paycheck that they don't.

Even though I have deselected "Show search suggestions in address bar results" in my preferences, I can't get rid of it.

When I start typing in the address bar it has the whole drop down box with a bunch of search engines I don't want or use - YouTube, Facebook, Wikipedia, Reddit and Twitter.

It wasn't there before, and it's really annoying.

Happening for the last 3 or 4 days, ROUGHLY every half an hour or so, though it seems pretty variable. I have not (knowingly) changed any settings.

I believe the problem is caused by some combination settings in Firefox or in an add-on. So all I can think to do (apart from switching to Chrome) is disable "everything" ("safe mode"?), and then re-enable things and restore settings one by one until the problem re-appears. But since the problem only appears after half an hour or more, this is gong to take many hours of work.

Any hints? Has anyone else seen this?

Developer tools shows me Javascript errors like this:

   Failed to get service worker registration(s): Storage access is restricted in this context due to user settings or private browsing mode.

This may be relevant, but I don't understand what it means.

"Enhanced tracking protection" is (now) OFF for mail.google.com. Any ideas what else might be causing this?
