A day ago I did the Firefox update to 75.0. Since then I have had trouble viewing ebay items. After you do a ebay search a list of items show up. When you open an item from a search list, you get a photo of the item usually on the left side and a description below the photo item. However, below and after the description everything including other seller photos and text are on the left side of the page. Normally they are across the page from the left side to right side. But now the layout is all on the left side. Everything is against the left side only and very hard to read. For many years I have never run into this problem before. I signed off and restarted Ebay with same problem. Looked at my son's computer and the ebay layout looked correct like like mine use to. I also opened up my google chrome browser and signed onto ebay. The ebay photos and text were correctly located on the page. So it appears that the recent update to firefox will not display the correct layout format in ebay. Can I download to the previous version of firefox? I 'm using latest Firefox browser 75.0 and running Windows 10. I attached a screen shot photo.

Recently updated to the latest 2 versions and Firefox is failing download speed wise. Upload speeds are what they should be. I have ran speed tests from multiple sources and all return a similar range - 40-60Mbps. My provider speed is 100Mbps. I have run the same tests with Safari and it is operating at 100% speed wise. Are new security features and / or tracking filters responsible for this slow down ?

It's so frustrating that the keyboard shortcut for closing tabs is right beside the one to quit Firefox. I've lost countless hours because of this, and it's so easy to accidentally do. Is there a way to keep this from happening? A simple "Are you sure" confirmation dialog would be great, or I really like the Chrome "hold command-Q" to exit feature. This seemingly simple function is proving extremely difficult to accomplish.

Yes, I'm aware of session restore, but (1) It does not preserve my window arrangement. I use multiple desktops for various tasks, and they each have related browser windows. (2) I need to see webpages exactly as they were when I opened them. Sessions expire, dynamic pages are refreshed, content is removed etc. That is all lost.

I do not want to disable session restore completely. It can still be useful. But, I do not want to trigger session restore automatically every time. Manual activation is ideal.

regarding: "browser.tabs.warnOnClose" I do not want a warning for closing multiple tabs. I often have many windows open and that warning gets annoying. It also doesn't prevent me from accidentally quitting when I only have one tab open.

I tried setting browser.warnOnQuit to true, but it's ignored.

I simply want a confirmation when I use the keyboard shortcut to QUIT. That's it. No side effects. Can Firefox do this?

Firefox 75.0 has just been released. Address bar has been ruined with dynamic size and lines with increased height. For some unknown reason Mozilla developers think that taking away more vertical space will help their browser have "Focused, clean search experience that's optimized for smaller laptop screens" as they state in the release notes. Outrageous.

Now tell me how to go back to the old behavior.

I want a full horizontal length search result widget as it was before.

I DO NOT want an ENLARGED address bar while searching. Simply annoying that it changes its size and looks like popping out from the upper top toolbar every damn time I type something into it.

I want the ORIGINAL LINE HEIGHT of search results in the expanded address bar.

I want an address bar that doesn't expand when focused with Alt+D, like the old one.

I haven't found an about:config option to restore old behavior. However, a userChrome.css workaround is still good for me.

When I key www.<website>.com in location bar and hit enter, Firefox uses http://www.<website>.com, not httpS://www.<website>.com, to find the website. Most of the time the http:// version does not resolve to a website. It just hunts and hunts and hunts. This same thing happens many times when I click on a link in gmail which I open in Firefox.

Since we are all supposed to be using httpS:// these days, why doesn't Firefox default to https://?

Is there some setting that I'm missing?

Thanks, Caitlin

My google maps is unable to access my location even though I have allowed location access from Firefox preferences/settings. The blue target button (Current Location) on Google maps is greyed out, and when I hover over it it says that access is not allowed. Even though when I'm in google maps, the Address bar shows that my location access is allowed, as well as in the Firefox settings. I have refreshed the window multiple times, restarted Firefox, cleared all cookies, and restarted my computer. I've also toggled the enhanced tracking protection in the address bar to off, restarted the browser, still not working. Everything in the settings tells me that access is allowed, yet google maps still tells me that it is denied. Has anyone had this problem, or know of a workaround or how to fix this? Thanks!

Hi,

Help me disable your new method of always sending a promo popup to my screen whenever I go to the internet. My work with information requires intense concentration and your unnecessary popups are very disruptive. When I want to update to a newer ver of FF after I check it out thoroughly as I ran into lots of work as one of your updates caused me to loose hundreds of passwords, EOS.

I look forward to hearing positively from you soon.

It looks satisfying for a layman now with a new account, but now i get a message from firefox on startup every time no matter what i click, that there is an old sync-account, pretty annoying.

For the last at least 25 releases, FF has gotten continually more hostile to someone like me who is visually impaired. I had read that FF was going to stop using the hamburger for menus because screen readers couldn't process it. That has not happened. Hamburgers, paper airplanes, icons instead of text, triple dots, and selector switches to turn settings on and off are all anti-accessibility. I don't like any of those features anyway. What is wrong with words like, "Menu," "Submit," or "Send"? This has been getting worse and worse over time. I don't know if the developers for FF are simply oblivious to the problems that they are causing or if they know but don't care. Gmail is worse but it seems like FF is following Google. What a horrible thing to do for accessibility, among other things. At least, though, Gmail on my phone can use the pinch technique to make the text larger. Firefox on my Android phone will not allow that. I cannot enlarge text in any window in the native FF phone app. This anti-accessibility is to pervasive it seems deliberate. Why is this being done????

"question: says it all. I have gone to "Options' and checked all the boxes and still I get only an abbreviated list of sites that I visit or have visited and this does not change with time. I have been using Firefox for years and this has never happened after an upgrade. For instance every time i want to go to my Hotmail account, I have to type in the URL in the address bar where as I used to be able to hit the drop down arrow in the address bar, a menu would drop down and i could click on Hotmail or Bank of America, etc and be taken to the site.
