This is very frustrating and I hope you can help me. Every time Firefox updates the tabs move up to the top of the browser, when I need them below the bookmarks bar, where they used to be. I did get instructions on how to do it for v. 72 (I think), but now I've updated to v. 78 and the tabs are again at the top. The instructions for changing the css: file go up to v. 74 only. Also, in the css: file I'm not sure how much of what's already there should be replace. The entire file? Or? This is probably frustrating for a whole raft of people, but for older ones like me (I'm 76) it's particularly maddening. I would appreciate any help I can get. Also, where would I submit my suggestion to Mozilla to just add a blasted toggle for moving the tabs back and forth. It would make a whole lot of people happy. BTW, I'm attaching a screenshot of the first page of what appears to be at least 8 pages of css: code. Should I delete all of it or...? Thanks for any help the community can give.

Why I know it can be made visible

   Yesterday, the following archived version from June 19 was viewed.
   https://web.archive.org/web/20200619233630/https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/
   The "New Recovered" column was visible, along with three other columns.
   Today, as in the past, "New Recovered" is again hidden.

The question:

   *****   How can they be made visible?  *******
   

Misc Information including the current, not yet archived, page

   The current webpage is https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/
   The "New Recovered" column is hidden by default.
   Columns are hidden or unhidden by clicking the "Columns" button.
   Using Windows 10 1909 and Firefox 78
   

What I have tried

   Tab to "Columns" button; tried every modifier key, ctrl+<key>, Enter, right- and left-click...
   

How to see what I see

   First visit the current page https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/
   "New Recovered" column is not visible.
   Click "Columns" and select "New Recovered" which is column 7.
   (it is 6 in list because column 1 can't be hidden)
   
   Now, open an archived page.  This is the one which had no hidden columns yesterday.
   https://web.archive.org/web/20200619233630/https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/
   Note the "New Recovered" column is not visible.
   To prove the data has been captured:
   Select "Yesterday"
   Press "Ctrl+u" to see the "Page Source"
   Find (Ctrl+f) and find one of the following "New Recovered" values (96,845  10,942) World & USA
   Find "Columns" to see the list of available columns.  ("New Recovered" is column 7)
   Find again and to see that columns 7, 16-18 are set to false preventing being displayed.
   

Since "New Recovered" column on the archived page somehow became visible yesterday. I know it can be done. Thank you, in advance.

HI,

it's a problem that's been around for years, yet i never got an appropriate answer, so i'm asking here:

The longer i keep Firefox running, the slower my whole system gets and the slower firefox itself gets - up to a point (generally like about 10 hours or so) where everything becomes so slow, i have to manually shut down Firefox via the Task Manager. All that seems to be independent from the fact whether i actually do something in Firefox or not.

So i don't know what Firefox actually does while i'm away that kills my whole system, but i'd really like to know and i appreciate any help!!!

THX in advance

For some reason my "bookmarks/show all bookmarks" has flipped colours and is now white text with dark background (it wasn't like it 2 days ago). All other bookmark 'stuff' is normal. Changing the text/background works for everything else.

I have a 29 monitor and I cannot work with the new view. When I try to zoom out, only the text gets smaller, and the picture keep their sizes and that is not good. The only thing to get more infos at once is to reduce to one sixth of the size of the screen!

For example: The google page doesn't show the row for the settings under the text box. Facebook has a look like in my smartphone, the pics are so huge, they are over the whole screen. So mostly I have only one or two threads at once on the screen. I like when I have a few more at once on it.

So up until firefox updated... yesterday? day before? not sure my circadian Rhythm is a total mess at the moment. but ever since that most recent update picture in picture doesn't pop up on netflix anymore?

i can still use it on YouTube and Prime Video, the only other sites i use it on really, but not Netflix?

as you can see, the icon appears fine on youtube, but on the netflix screenshot, it does not.

dead annoying since watching a show with picture in picture while grinding in a windowed game is a poor gamer's second screen.

Fingers crossed - I may have solved this problem by completely uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox. The problem: Every time I opened Firefox, the Safe Access app on my Synology RT2600ac router would send an alert to say that it had blocked a connection to vice.com. I've never visted that website, so I have no idea why Firefox would keep triggering an alert from my router. Has anyone any idea what might have cause this?
