Hail all:

Then opening All bookmarks, the window reverts to "Other bookmarks".

Is there a way to bring that to "All Bookmarks"?

Being autistic, this has been quite a monsterly beam (once splinter) in my eye...

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.

Whenever I go onto one specific website to listen to music, everything works fine but for some reason, when I open the same website in Private Browsing Mode to avoid getting clapped by the algorithm, it always automatically sets the volume to around 50%. I can easily get around this by just dragging the volume bar up but it has been months and it's starting to get a bit annoying.

I've tried clearing the cache, changing the default volume in about:config, disabling all extensions, clearing cookies & site data, resetting my preferences, refreshing Firefox, uninstalling Firefox, following a guide to clear Firefox's residual files, and clearing all of my computer's temporary files, but it still defaults to 50% volume in Private Browsing Mode

Any help at all would be greatly appreciated

I lost that session of around 2000 tabs back in May 1, and I backed it all up onto a folder. When I followed all the existing steps (closing Firefox and replacing the current stuff with the backups), it only took me to a blank "about:restore" tab and popped up an about:support tab.

When I tried loading it into the scrounger (https://www.jeffersonscher.com/ffu/scrounger.html), it crashed the tab no matter how many times I try. I decompressed it and it loaded the uncompressed JSON without a problem, but it won't let me click "save embedded session (first found only)"

Cuando instalo las demás versiones nunca me funciona la acreditación del Certificado Digital. - He desinstalado y vuelto a instalar la Autofirma para Windows de 64 bits. - También he instalado el ConfiguradorFNMT. - Además, en el navegador, Opción Privacidad y Seguridad, Certificados, Autoridades FNMT: está todo activo en "Sitio de Confianza". El complemento para Firefox que tengo instalado es signText JSplus , y siempre funciona pero ahora no. Este problema ha surgido al cambiar mi certificado digital caducado (eliminado) e instalar el nuevo. Por favor, ruego me ayuden ustedes. En nuestra localidad no hay equipo informático. La única técnica soy yo y por más que intento, no logro solucionarlo. En espera de su respuesta. Gracias

Again....I´m starting to get really frustrated over latest firefox as it is becoming more unfriendly and too much for the tech savy. Having got the bookmarks over to the LHS of the screen, (what a struggle) now one simply cannot organize the sites to type and not by name. There is not a single cue click on this. It would be nice to have a restore feature to how the setup was BEFORE the browser crashed.

This morning I opened Firefox only to find that the GUI had changed completely. I have managed to enable the theme and have customised the toolbar, but my extensions are no longer visibile to the right of the search box, and my dictionaries and language packs are disabled without (so it seems) the possibility of enabling them. My bookmarks seem to be intact, but Firefox is now extremely slow (I've been waiting ages for a new tab to open). What is going on, and how can I restore my extensions (including password manager) and language tools?

Firefox 90.0.2 (64-bit) on Windows 10.

In about:preferences#privacy I have "Block pop-up windows" ticked and 16 websites set as exceptions.

This exception list works in non-private windows, but not in private ones - popups are blocked and I have to explicitly click "options" and then "show".

This bug was introduced a few releases ago - it used to work OK.

Hi.

I'm a long time firefox user. The past few years, I have not been able to copy text from print preview. This is important to me, as I run a small business and need to copy order numbers from the print preview screen to keep my work flow going. I can do this in chrome, but cannot in firefox.

It is nothing I can copy from a website, as it is a link I click to open the invoice.

The only work around that I know of would be to print the pdf to a file, open the file, and copy it from there - but this is not acceptable because it is too time consuming.

If anyone has something that will work, it would be much appreciated.

I have had a primary/master password set in Firefox for years. It only prompted me to enter it once per session. Since version 90, it now pops up at least once a day at random times to ask for the password again. This has happened on 3 different devices where Firefox is installed.

How can I stop it doing that or at least extend the time to a week? I know there are hidden config options for these, but they look to be on the default values, so have never changed.

My situation is probably unique but basically, I have a new computer. On my old computer I had a fair few windows open. Because of a lot of different issues (bad battery, no working charger etc.), I have access to the hard drive of my old computer but I can't turn it on anymore and it died before I could reopen most of the windows on my new computer. I'm able to use the hard drive as an external hard drive to transfer everything to the new computer as needed So, I know it's possible to get back bookmarks by transferring the files. I also know that there is a recovery file somewhere in the firefox folder which is used when hitting "Restore previous session" to get back the previous windows Would that mean it's possible to find the file from the old computer's hard drive and move it to the same folder on the new computer to use for the restore function in a similar was as the bookmarks?
