I received an updated version of Firefox the other day and was asked if I wanted to retain my previous "look" or switch to the new "look". I decided I wanted to try the New Look... and after trying this ProPDFConverter "Look"... I despise it!~ This is the worst functioning browser for my level of expertise that I have ever heard of and it appears from my perspective that you have taken a wonderful browser and turned it into a POS.

How do I go back to the previous version of Firefox prior to the latest "Look" ?

Regards,

Anthony

After an update in late 2017, Firefox has not been working properly on my Windows 10:

First 2 items would like some solution/suggestion:

1) can't right click on the drop down suggested list to proceed searching on the selected item;

2) GoogleDoc; when hovering over a doc name, a Firefox contest menu would appear to cover up the GoogleDoc Conext Menu.

Thanks.

I just upgraded from Firefox 59 to 60, and the setting browser.newtabpage.activity-stream.topSitesCount no longer exists. Because of that, my topsites fill the rows assign, making each item small. I always limit it to 12, now they are 36 and that is too many.

In the Firefox update that was installed today, I find that I cannot remove individual cookies because the "Manage Cookies and Site Data" box is missing the bottom section (Remove selected, remove all shown, cancel, save changes). In every help section, the graphic shows the bottom section, but when I follow the steps, the Manage Cookies and Site Data box ends at the bottom with the last listed cookie. There are no options to remove, cancel, etc.

when I click on the frontpage, nothing happens now since the update. Also the arrow is gone to read the next page and it is impossible to consult the older newspapers (archive) - see examples.

By using Google Chrome everything is fine, no problems at all, I can read my newspaper as usual.

So the cause of this bug is Firefox!!!

Why does version 60 ignore userChome.css when I try to move tab bar to bottom?

Just updated to 64-bit Firefox Quantum version 60 today. Like so many other people, I want to move my tab bar so that it's right above the content. I Googled and found directions on how to create a "chrome" folder in my profile, then downloaded the "userChrome-tabs_on_bottom.css", put it in that folder and then renamed the file to "userChrome.css". I restarted Quantum and was disappointed to see that it ignored the file. Does anybody have an idea why this is happening? My OS is Windows 7 SP1, fully updated. I do have a dedicated graphics card too.

Just this week I was deleting individual cookies as they appeared or when I was through with the site. Suddenly, that option is gone. Additionally, the "Manage Data" button/link claims to be the replacement. It does not work. I logged into several sites and nothing appeared in cookies. This includes my google account which dumps a copious amount of cookies and trackers on your browser. I have taken a picture of where the "show cookies" link/button used to be located.

I don't understand this change. I want control of my privacy and Mozilla is the best but this option being gone and having no real way to delete individual cookies is maddening.

Please tell me how to remedy this.

I have 'mixed content' somewhere in my Hotmail account according to Firefox. So I see an exclamation mark on the lock icon in the url bar. How do I find and remove the mixed content lurking somewhere in (an attachment in) my inbox? Firefox's suggestions only cover how to switch available security measures on and off.

following last 2 updates of Firefox, I have been unable to go to gmail without Firefox crashing. I can access all other gsuite items like google docs and google calendar without a crash occurring. There is no warning of the crash either - Firefox just shuts down. I am using Windows 7, 64 bit, running Firefox 60 (64 bit). PS. IE runs gmail with no issues on the same laptop.

I'm using Firefox Quantum 60.0 on Mac OS X High Sierra 10.13.3. I frequently use the Option - Shift - Left/Right Arrow keyboard combo to select words of text. This combo worked in Firefox up until this latest update. I checked my keyboard preferences in OS X, and everything looks fine there. I disabled all Firefox Add-Ons and also restarted the browser in safe mode, and this unfortunately did not help. Note that I can still use this keyboard combo in Chrome and all other applications. I then looked at key bindings in about:config, but I haven't customized anything there, and the values all look to be their defaults. What further steps should I take to restore this shortcut functionality?

Since I updated to Firefox 60.0 (Quantum) yesterday Firefox is extremely slow to load. Once loaded, its speed is highly diminished. The recommendation is to refresh Firefox to its factory setting. But it loses extensions, which makes it a pretty lousy solution. I do not know where I got the extensions from, but I am using them all.

I have Windows 10. The Microsoft Edge browser loads very quickly.

Firefox is so slow it is unusable.
