Reason: CORS request not http, can't bypass with file_unique_origin - Firefox 89

I am trying to do some local web development, if I open an index file directly in Firefox it complains that the CORS request is not being made over HTTP. I know I can try and set up a local web server for development but that's beside the point.

According to this previous Mozilla post linked below I can set privacy.file_unique_origin to false, and it's suppose to override the security setting. This does not work for me, setting it to false and closing all browsers and testing the HTML file again, I still see the CORS error. Is this setting now useless in the newest version of Firefox? Is there a different config setting I need to adjust?

The last Firefox updates have suddenly created havoc. None, absolutely none of the websites that I frequently visit will have my login information saved even though when I view logins in the settings mode, they are all listed there with the correct passwords. I am not technical and would sincerely appreciate a tutorial of some kind as to how to correct this egregious oversite on behalf of the Mozilla team.

Firefox changed my View settings with the recent update ...

The new changes don't make sense at all ... They basically reduced the contrast and/or increased the brightness in the toolbar. Like other humans, I rely on contrast to see where one thing ends and another thing starts.

I didn't ask for or agree to this ... How do I change it back? (I clicked around and it's not obvious.)

Can't remove US English

I've just added UK English and restarted Firefox. Now, why can I not remove US English, even though that one shouldn't be in use, and I still can remove UK English, even though that one *is* in use (or should be)?

Greying out a button is only recommended when it's crystal clear why that is. In this case, I have no clue why I couldn't remove US English, and so gryeing out that button makes no sense to me. It should be enabled, and display a message explaining why a language can't be removed if it can't be.

For the moment, can someone please explain why US English can't be removed then?

89.0 Update Borked Firefox on Startup?

So for the most part I rather like update 89. It looks snappy. One annoying issue I'm currently having is that Firefox will no longer open maximized on start up. I click the shortcut and it opens in a little window on the left side of my screen. I click the maximize button and instead of maximizing to full screen it moves the little window onto the right side of my screen. Clicking maximize a second time finally gets the browser to open full size. Why is it doing this and how do I make it stop? Never did this before 89, now all of a sudden it does it. I'd like for the browser to open fill size instead of clicking multiple times before it finally decides to do so. Thanks.

Not to be rude or anything, but the new Versions Layout (89.0 64bit from June 1st) looks Horrible. Why is everything so Floaty, Big and Hidden? What happened to the Simple, Clean and Sharp Previous Layout?

Is there any way to get the "Old" Layout Back without completely reinstalling the Previous Version?

I have a HP office jet 6500 printer. It has been working fine from my Ubuntu Computer using Firefox . Since downloading the latest version of Firefox I cannot connect to the printer and there for cannot print or scan.

The printer is still working normally from a second computer using Windows10.

I have tried re installing the printer but that has made no difference.

I am wondering if the problem could be caused by the Firefox fire wall. Help please. Please note I don't even know enough to be dangerous so any help will need to be extremely basic. I know my name everything else will need to be explained step by step,

Thanks

John
