The new version, 89.0.1, has removed the contrast and separation of the tabs, making it hard to read now. Why?

I don't mean to be rude, but if you could get the decision-makers who authorize drastic changes to the appearance of the browser when a new release comes out to just stop "fixing" things that aren't broken, that would certainly satisfy me. I'm not picky about color schemes and "themes", but now the browser is difficult to read, and it wasn't before. I need to know how to restore the appearance of my browser to be the same as in the previous version, or I'll finally have to quit Firefox after all these years and switch to a different one. I don't want to have to do that, but I don't think I can manage to deal with this new hard-to-read low-contrast version. I'm sure someone thought this design looked "cool", and was therefore an improvement. I don't want to stifle anyone's creativity, but the browser I use has to be easier to read. Maybe the next release will offer a choice between the "look and feel" of the previous version versus this one. Thanks for considering my problem (and it is a problem for me), and I'll keep my fingers crossed.

FF auto-updated to 89.0.1, now a site won't work, would like to RESTORE deleted/cleared COOKIES (?!?!) for that site to see if it will help cuz deleted the cookie for it made things worse! Doesn't work under Private FF session either!!

Specifics: I am the Webmaster of (we use WIX to create/manage it) 12cdrc.org and it is working fine using Edge, Chrome, Brave, but no longer works correctly (since 89.0.1, I think happened late last night early this morning on my system) update. Most of the page loads, but the Calendar and display tweets sub-windows will not load! It will be obvious to all where they should be displaying but are not!

So, I tried removing 12cdrc.org cookies. Things got worse! Now the Login won't work either, where I was logged in as my user for the site prior to that.

I tried a Private window/session, and the Login function does work, the Calendar does show, but the tweets sub-section/window still does not display/function.

Background: This is not the first website to malfunction using Firefox... Previous version updates broke the rescuemichigan.com website (none of the pull-down menu functions work, but work fine on/with Brave, Chrome, Edge)! Also mewe.com acts up using FF at times, but a clear of the mewe.com related cookies and relogin at mewe via FF clears up the issues of things not wanting to display correctly or fully on mewe using FF - which is why I thought clearing 12cdrc.org cookies would help in this case (but did not, again, made the malfunctioning worse)!

This makes little sense. I even tried doing D/L of full 89.0.1 install, didn't help.

I'd like to try and RESTORE COOKIES (last thing I want to do is clear all data/cookies for FF) for 12cdrc.org from manual offload of all my userid appdata folder/sub-folders to an external drive (or perhaps appdata backup to Norton cloud backup done a few weeks ago)! But I do not know where to look. Was about to go to my external drive and do complete file search of "12cdrc*.*" to see what would return when I thought I could search Mozilla/FF Help on "Restore Cookies" but only very old question for very old version of FF showed up and it said "IF STILL NEED HELP ASK NEW QUESTION" so here I am doing so!!!

Again, all sites (12CDRC.org, MeWe.com, and RescueMichigan.com) ALL WORK 100% error/issues free using Brave, Chrome, Edge, so this is FIREFOX SPECIFIC and all these issues have started under/after recent FF updates and/or gotten worse, not fixed/better, under updates/upgrades!!!!

Appreciate any Help... 1) like I said, where the Cookies are hidden that I might then recover them from previous save 2) other suggestions?!?!?!

I've been using Office 365 subscription through work on my Mac with Firefox for years. Today, it stopped working. It was actually quite scary: when I logged in, all my information was gone (all email, etc.). When I check Microsoft, it states it supports Firefox for all major OSes except Mac. I can still access Office 365 on Chrome, but I don't like being forced to use a browser I don't like from a company I don't like. IT help through my work has been useless. They just said use Edge.

Does anybody know the status of this change? Is it intended to be permanent or is it a temporary issue? If it's a permanent choice to exclude Mac users from using Firefox, what is the best way to signal protest against this and maybe get Microsoft to rethink making a major, popular browser useless? I would like to support Firefox/Mozilla in pushing back against this potentially significant move to limit their usability. Thanks.

Just having upgraded to V89.0.1, I won't focus on how more difficult to see the separation of tabs, but instead: All my folders in bookmarks have turned clear and appear to be the basic default look. Specific sites under each folder, as well as the individual sites not in folders, have kept their (what used to be called) Favicons.

I see no customizing option for this. Can I at least give the top level folder a color, WITHOUT FANCY PROGRAMMING OR EDITING OF DEEP CONFIGURATION FILES, just by menu clicking?

I'll conclude by not asking why the Powers thought to remove such things. To me it makes it HARDER to find my way around Firefox and displayed page.

Hi,

I noticed a problem on my MacBook Pro when Firefox is running. When I have 4 tabs opened on a precise streaming website, with the sound disabled on these 4 tabs, and I run other tab (like youtube) or other app (VLC, Music,...) with the sound enabled on it, I can ear some "pop" or "crackle" in the speakers.

I performed the same test with Safari and the problem don't appear.

Motherbaord, and speakers have been replace on my laptop by AppleCare. I think it's a software issue (maybe due to Firefox, maybe to macOs). I contacted Apple to explain my problem and ask them try to reproduce the issue, but they won't do until Mozilla confirm that the issue is not due to Firefox...

I did't find how to contact Firefox support Team, so I posted here...

Hello Mozilla Community,

While selecting all my tabs to move some of them to another window, I misclicked and it opens them all twice.

Immediately after I made the mistake to accept closing what I thought was the doublons, but instead it closed them all except for the few doublons remaining.

There were many important tabs opened months ago, that's why I'm asking help.

I don't know what happened but I found this thread (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1310742) and followed some of the steps.

I managed to recover the recovery_backlzk4 in excellent state from around twenty minutes before the problem, and tried to read the URLs from it with this person's tool: https://www.jeffersonscher.com/ffu/scrounger.html

It did not work, so I don't know what to do.

Can someone explain me if there is still something to do about it or not?

Thank you very much

Also how could something like this happen? Isn't the idea of Sync to merge?

I have had PCs for years and have used Firefox. My PC died and will not boot. I have an image of my C:\ drive on a Passport disk. But the Mac will not read it. I installed Firefox on my new Mac and signed in had all of my bookmarks and passwords. Then there was a Firefox icon on the bottom strip and one on my screen. In the interim, I opened some new accounts and used a bunch of passwords. At the end of the day, I dragged the icon on the screen down to the row of icons at the lower screen. That wiped out my Firefox. I downloaded Firefox again and put in what I thought was the password and it said I had multiple accounts and if I changed the password it would erase all of my data. I need to find out how to get the right password so I preserve my data. The email account I used as the ID is coolsgirl@msn.com. I am 72 and I don't want to make a mistake that is irreversible. My sister said Macs were easier but I should have gotten a new PC. Live and learn. I don't know my Firefox email. Thank you, Phyllis

I used to be able to use Google Maps without problem on Firefox.

I'm not sure exactly when the problem arose, but I'm positive it is broken on my Firefox 89.0, and now on Firefox 89.0.1 - The problem is as follows:

When I load the https://www.google.fr/maps/ site, I see the map load, I see the towns, the roads, the "pins" (shops, points of interest, etc.); I have the names displayed, it looks fine. Then, once it's done loading, the map background disappears, and I'm left with only the names and the pins. Enclosed is a picture of the area around Paris, France, after it "went dark".

If I drag and drop the map, or zoom in or out, the map reappears and is perfectly readable. But as soon as I stop moving it, the map tiles disappear again, and I'm stuck with only the names and pins again.


I've checked under other browsers (Edge, for instance), and the problem seems to occur only on Firefox. I've removed ALL my google-related cookies (because of old answers to problems with Google Maps, saying to try that), and it didn't help. I tried reloading the page, emptying the cache, didn't work either.

Am I the only one to experience this ? Any ideas as to why it happens, or how to correct it ?
