Firefox was working well - and unfortunately I had forgotten to switch updates off. Now display settings on some pages are really grim from a "not great eyesight and now things are tinier" point of view.

I use Protopage (custom home page with news etc) and if you open a second tab, it allows you to have a selection of Icons each with a regularly used link. It still works, but after FF upgraded itself, the image in the tile has shrunk to a fraction of the original size - and is now surrounded by a thick border of white (with rounded edges of course).

Is there a "high vis" option which simply removes wasted white space which seems to have just been added at the expense of clarity?

Is there a way to either revert to a previous version OR to undo the visual messing about they have decided we all must want? If so, please let me know, as this "let's change something to make it harder to see", approach is a bit annoying.

Alas I cannot do a "before" image, but the "after" one is shown, complete with my efforts to explain what has changed.

Any guidance on either reversing the update or switching of the "shrink image and surround with large white border" geratfully received please.

Many thanks.

And i switch "browser.tabs.showAudioPlayingIcon" to "false" and restart the browser. But I am still able to turn off the sound by clicking the icon on the tab. The config option is still set to "false".

What is the proper way to disable mute icon on tabs?

I just recently started using mac being a windows user. While I understand this is not really a game breaker, why is Firefox the only program that ignores my preference changes? Going to settings>keyboard>modifier keys> and then swapping ctrl with the command key fixes my desire to have ctrl+ commands work with every single program, except Firefox still uses the command key as its shortcut initiator no matter what I do. I have seen a few posts from at least 3 years ago and as recent as 2020, does Mozilla ever plan to implement a shortcut menu for its users or are we stuck with using 3rd parties to fix this for us? I still use both PC and Mac.

This is driving me crazy. I've been using Chrome for 4 years and I switch to Firefox because it is more faster and smooth than Chrome, my issue is that I'm a writer so, on the website that I work on we got this shortcuts to put bold, cursive, etc, and they begin with Alt + something, every time that I'm trying to use them I got the bookmark on the menu bar open and doesn't let me use the shortcut on the website.

There is any way to delete completely the menu bar? I already got the ui.key.menuAccessKeyFocuses on false, but the shortcuts as Alt + B still open the bookmarks or Alt + H opens the history on the menu. I really need a fix for this guys.

I have been using the firefox web-browser, and often use the control-f (^F) key to search for a phrase on a given tab.

This works well, but when I type something that isn't on the page (or more likely, mis-type) it makes an annoying "digning" noise and turns red.

Is there any way to silence this behavior? Turning red is good enough for me, the digning is irritating. I'm using the Ubuntu version.

Thanks
