Is anyone else noticing a huge difference with websites failing to load, long load times, etc. with 89.2? Just downloaded and installed today and immediately had issues. I can't figure out how to go back to previous version. If anyone knows how to re-install and run previous version please let me know. Thanks.

Since yesterday, When I try to connect to YouTube and google, following error is displayed.

Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue

I did some research and changed the about:config security.enterprise_roots. setting to enabled and Issue was fixed. But YouTube freezes when the setting is in the above mentioned state. I tried refreshing, reinstalling, remove and re instilling this far. A help is much appreciated. Thanks in Advance.

My first Firefox version was 1.0 several decades ago. I have used it with great success until 89.0 then everything went sour. So I tried to go back to 88 but it would not let me use my previous PROFILE. All it allowed was to CREATE A NEW ONE. It gives you only one option, "EXIT or CREATE A NEW ONE". EXIT 'stops' future installation, CREATE A NEW ONE and you lose EVERYTHING. I don't remember these issues in the 'old days' of reverting back if one had problems with a new version. I found my old profiles but I do not know to USE my last one. I was surviving with rel 88 but it crashed 3-5 times a day and today, finally went hard down and would not run. It then gave me 89.0. Terrible. Then here comes 89.02 AND IT CRASHES WORSE THAN 89.0. Right now my Firefox is worthless so I am now using EDGE which I 'REALLY' dislike but it WORKS unlike Firefox. What I WANT to do is go to an older version until they get their act together and USE one my OLD PROFILES to save everything.

DOES ANYONE KNOW HOW TO USE A PREVIOUS VERSION, THEN SELECT A PROFILE TO "GO BACK"?

Firefox is my default browser, and has been for a long time. Recently clicking on hyperlinks didn't lead to a new window opening, but they do when i make chrome/edge the default browser. Also, when i right click the firefox icon in my taskbar, and click on open new window, a new window doesn't open. i need to drag a tab off screen to create new windows. this is frustrating, and i might need to stop using firefox until it's fixed. please let me know if this is something i can fix on my end, but it seems like a software issue to me

I plan content for a job that I have, and lately when going to these planning sites, my content will often post much earlier than scheduled. This is because though I may put, for example, 4:45 PM, the website seems to think that I am in a different time zone, posting at 12:45 instead. This has been across multiple sites, and I have been unable to fix it. Using other browsers, I don't run into this issue, and have checked my time zone on my computer as well to ensure that there's nothing wrong on my end. I've updated my browser, and even uninstalled and reinstalled, with no luck in correcting this error. Is there a way to fix this so it reflects my actual time zone?

Why did you remove the right-click menu that showed the page settings, i.e., I used to be able to right-click and go this POPUP and could see whether or not I had saved password for this particular page!

If you removed that feature, that's REALLY STUPID!!!! STOP making FF worse!

Just like when I try to submit suggestion/feedback, I go to some dumbass page now (https://mozilla.crowdicity.com/) and there is STILL no option to submit feedback! RETARDED

GREAT JOB FF DESIGN TEAM = FAIL!

I'm using Ubuntu 21.04, with Firefox Version 89.0.1

I like my window control buttons to the left, and I prefer them on the top bar. In Version 89.0.1, I'm now stuck with two sets of window control buttons.

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/906698

So that was asked 9 years ago, and I tried adding those lines to my userChrome.css in the chrome folder of my profile directory. Sadly, that solution no longer works in Version 89.

See the attached image for my userChrome.css file, and how ridiculous it looks with two sets of window controls.

Please help me remove the minimize, maximize and close buttons when I maximize my firefox window.

Firefox colour addon removed the whole existing theme, replaced everything with it's default selections.

I use a custom theme, I just want to change the text colours on the menu bar, tab bar and bookmark bar. But the color addon destroyed the whole theme when I made any single change. I had disable and enable the theme to restore it. How do I import the theme to color addon so I can edit it?

I am having an odd issue where the Saved Logins pop-up is missing letters the first time I open a website. Once I mouse over the menu, the letters appear and do not disappear until the next time I open Firefox. It happens once per site per Firefox opening. This issue coincided with a slow performance and keyboard issue (laptop, keypresses reppppppeating). I sent it back to the manufacturer for repair, and they did a full Win10 reinstall. Fresh install of Firefox, and the issue is back. It does not happen Chrome or Edge. I have checked on my other devices and they do not have this problem.

Anyone else have this problem? Could it be a profile issue, or something with Sync? If it's just a quirk, I can live with it but I am concerned that the root issue that caused the slowness and keybbboard problem has not been solved and this is proof.

Under an "about:profiles" profile, selecting the "Open Directory" button opens my Linux "Document Viewer" with an "Unable…" warning; expected because that's not what Document Viewer is for.

This could be exactly as predicted in my preferences, but I didn't find any means to redirect that button action at a different helper. I expected it to routinely use my default file manager application and this was a surprise. All I could find searching for the issue focuses on URLs which isn't my problem; I can enter (or copy/paste) the displayed path beside that button okay as "file:///…," so I can call that the workaround.

How is this button action set? Is it a simple thing buried somewhere in the settings?

Hi everyone,

I've enabled the Restore previous session feature (in Settings->General->Startup). All nice and good, except the fact that FF is serving pages from cache when starting up and restoring the session. I would very much like FF to refresh the pages so I can see the live content by default.

Any ideas? Maybe an about:config flag?

Thanks, Mircea.

Hi all,

After a recent update to firefox I didn't like the premade colour themes, so I made my own. There is one thing that bothers me though, and I'm not sure how to change it: As you can see in the attached image, the tab I'm currently on has a clear distinct colour. However, all the unselected tabs have the same colour as the background. I find it annoying that this makes unselected tabs harder to spot, and makes it harder to see where one tab begins and the other ends. It is minor, but it annoys me. Does anyone know a way (either via settings or the add-on firefox color) for me to make the unselected tabs stand out from the background?

Thanks in advance.
