hi =)

So what hapened?

Now there is a huge white bar up top with my open tabs.

I prefer it how it was in v88

How do I get it to look like it was before the update?

Thanks)

(it really is terrible now, and while i always promoted FF to whoever, I think this unwanted change makes me want to look elsewhere, sadly)

Help, how can I go BACK to the last version of Firefox?? I HATE Version 89. Not only do the new tabs all blend in with each other because they're all the same color, but they're placed lower in the screen and add a strip of unused dead space along the top of screen, which means the content I want to see is all pushed down into a smaller, squished space. Arg - already getting high blood pressure trying to navigate it!

My firefox is slow but not real slow but enough to notice a little bit. It does take a minute to first load. It has crashed but only when I have clicked the close Firefox " Red X"

It really does a crazy thing.  If I have VLC open playing a file, or I am in Firefox on YouTube If I change to new tab or click a link my sound on the Desktop crackles and it's like everything comes to a halt in VLC and Firefox. Or just in Firefox on YT.   I am not sure if this is a hardware issue with my speakers I have already moved the speakers plug to front and no change it still does it.  The speakers are old I bought them way back in 2005.  Do speakers go bad?  I don't know why it is doing this. 

My other issue is cleaning my computer. You see Firefox has over 8,000 bookmarks I have collected since around 2006-2008 or even earlier. I don't know how to remove the ones I don't need anymore. I guess it has well over 250-300 folders and loose bookmarks My guess around 1500+ not in folders. Some folders will scroll a few minutes. I want to removed some folders I don't need anymore and want to know if there is a way to store others in case I need them later I can load them and keep some on Firefox? Many of these book marks are related to research I have done and I can't just trash my bookmarks and start over.

The problem is that after updating to 89.0 (64-bit) many websites stop rendering content properly. I have tried resetting Firefox and this did not help.

The issue is that random parts of the website fail to load or be displayed. I am attaching examples for two websites with an example from Firefox and Chrome so you can see how it is supposed to display and what is showing up. I know this issue only started after updating to 89.0 as I was on both of these sites earlier today with no problems, then Firefox randomly updated and the problem started.

Long time User of Firefox. Everyone day, one of the first sites I read is WSJ.com. Recently (now running 89.0 Firefox) the WSJ.com website has been totally jumbled. I cross checked it on Chrome, where it was working fine. I have reported this to WSJ.com, and now also to Firefox. Is there a new setting requirement in Firefox 89.0 for that page? This is the only regular site I visit where this is occurring.

Any insights?

How Do I Make Bookmark Folders in the Sidebar Solid and Not Translucent or "See Through"? - Mac OS; FF 89

How to fill in these outlines of bookmark folders in the sidebar? (See image posted with this).

These folders were a solid light blue until FF89 - I'm sure there is something in usersChrome.css I can modify, but no clue as to what.

Any directions, please make them step-by-step!

I really dislike the new version of Firefox - as with everything these days, it seems to be tablet/phone-oriented whilst I continue to be a PC dinosaur.

For example, some websites are now showing up with hefty vertical borders ... and particularly annoying for me is the leading (i.e. vertical spacing) on the dropdowns, especially Bookmarks which I use frequently. The fact that it's so much 'spacier' means that I have a lot more scrolling down to do!

I've stuck with Firefox through thick and thin over many years now, but if there isn't some way to change this - or revert (permanently - i.e. not to be thrown into the air again at the next update) - I'll be seriously thinking of jumping ship to the evil Chrome or Edge.

Any advice welcome!

I'm running Firefox 89.0.1 I've tried following the information to find and restore my bookmarks but when I try this all Firefox prompts me is to import from another browser platform (which I don't use). Any ideas?

Hi

I've posted about this issue before. I've done everything recommended, starting with clearing cache and cookies, disabling add ons and extensions, refreshing firefox and now have done a clean install. The issue persists and I'm stuck!

I have a wordpress business website. On it is a blog page, which links to all my blog posts - see attached image when viewing on Edge. But on Firefox none of the links are visible. They ARE there - if you hover, the cursor changes and I can click on the link and go to the page but I can't actually SEE any of the links.

When I did the clean install, the very first time I visited the blog page everything looked normal. However, after visiting a post and returning to the blog page the links had disappeared again! Firefox seems to be putting some kind of cookie or something on that particular page (it's the only page I'm having issues with) and after the cookie has been installed it blocks all the links.

Please help. This is my business website and if I can't get it working I'll have to stop using Firefox.

On the Total Adblock site it gives these directions for removing the program: "Mozilla Firefox Uninstalling Adblock from your Mozilla Firefox browser is very simple and can be done within a few clicks. Go to the Extensions Page on Mozilla Firefox copy this link into the address bar of your browser:about:addons

Find Total Adblock within your plugins . Click the 3 Dots. Click Remove."

I do not know where the "extensions page" is. Nor where to find it. While I have been using personal computers for decades, I am still a complete beginner when it comes to any technical jargon. If someone would kindly give me directions in English about getting rid of this annoying extension/program? I would deeply appreciate it.

The menu (Bokmarks )has become too large a distance between the lines. Now the menus are getting way too long. Hard to read links and hard to find! Why this completely idiotic design change?

The change in the appearance of the tabs is also strange!

Is it possible to change back to the usual menu line spacing ???
