Hi there! Since FF 91 all menu items have an incredible vertical spacing, the menu item is twice as high as before. This is a nuisance especially in the bookmark menus. I would like to have the narrow menu item spacing back, without being urged to install an AddOn or to learn CSS programming or to file a bug in this peculiar BugZilla system. Think of our family of USERS, not developers.

Yes, I understand the circumstances of free software. Yes, I see it is necessary to keep up with modern UI design and the so-called technical progress. The FF 91 UI changes slightly towards what we expect to get in Windows 11. Fine! Also, it is absolutely clear that the new menu line spacing adds more comfort to the FF usability ... on tablet PCs and smart phones. But NOT for desktop users.

As far as I know, Microsofts plans for Windows 11 still include a setting to keep the old narrow menu item height. Mozilla should do so, too. I hope the developers will take care to not lose contact to their users.

There's a web site I use very frequently that I suddenly cannot access any longer. I got the error message, "404 Bad Request," followed by "Request Header Or Cookie Too Large," and then "openresty/1.15.8.2." This only appears with Firefox. Microsoft Edge loads the sight just fine. What's going on here?

Is there a way I can remove all Firefox information?

I uninstalled Firefox. I deleted the file folder in C:\. I emptied the trash. I restarted my computer. I downloaded a new copy. But it keeps installing with the old profile info, even if its not signed in.

I can't see why I can't remove everything and have a fresh install. This should be built into the browser. Delete all profile info, bookmarks, etc. And then it should be gone.

Also, it seems like Firefox is automatically importing the bookmarks from my Old Chrome profile. That was the 1st google Account I had, and the original one I signed into after installing Chrome, which I no longer use. Now it seems like its automatically choosing that profile.

In the install package, there should be a clean install option with no import of bookmarks. A simple checkbox would suffice.

Does anyone know if there is a simple way to have a fresh install?

Thanks

I been reading various guide about how to use CSS to override the hyperlink color. But it is not working, Firefox are not grabbing the userChrome.css from the folder. I am not sure if there is other step that I have to do since I did everything to enable it through multiple guides.


  • toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.stylesheets is enabled
  • chrome folder is created and located in my profile root folder
  • userChrome.css and userContent.css is in chrome folder
  • restarted Firefox multiple times even checking the task manager to ensure that Firefox is absolutely shut down.

Based on those above, it should be working. I thought it was the CSS code, however Stylus have no issue with the code. Yes, there are two empty rules in there because I got the impression that CSS strongly relies on inheritance. So I set this way to ensure that that nothing will be overridden by the website CSS. I created a clean fresh profile and set the same thing above and restarted Firefox. Unfortunately, it didn't work. So the addons are ruled out. my default profile is ruled out since the clean fresh profile having the same issue.

I don't know what is the possible issue of this? I don't know if my CSS is defined correctly since Stylus does not have a issue with it and applying CSS on all websites. Anyone have a clue?

My CSS content:

@namespace url("http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul");

a: link {} a: visited {

   color: #ffa500 !important;

} a: hover {} a: active {

   color: #ffa500 !important;

}

I prefer Firefox but speed-tests show it is considerably slower than Chrome and Edge. I have cable network connection. Max download speed is 1000 Mbps. Test show above 900 Mbps for Edge and Chrome and 5-600 Mbps for Firefox, sometimes it is much slower and sometimes download stops for 5-20 seconds. I therefore tried "Refresh Firefox" - and my dear Bookmark sidebar disappeared!! Firefox info told me bookmarks would be saved. Well, it is saved, but it is real troublesome to use it compared to my old sidebar. I WANT MY OLD SIDEBAR BACK - ANY HELP? Kind regards Toralf

I stupidly allowed my Firefox to "up"grade from FF90 to FF91. This has caused the padded spaced-out menus to return, which I had managed to fix in the previous version, but the fix does not work in FF91.

I cannot work with the increased vertical spacing of the menus. It bugs me, it annoys me, and it pi..., that is to say, it gets me very cross.

Since Mozilla in their un-wisdom have decided to deny us the possiblility of customising the vertical spacing to suit our needs, but have instead decided to dictate the increased spacing, I would like to roll back to FF90 and disable upgrades until such time as Mozilla decide to listen to their users and allow customisation - would it really hurt to do that, Mozilla?

In the meantime, how can I best roll back to FF90? Can I download it from somewhere? How can I install it without losing bookmarks, settings, and css file?

Hello,

I noticed recently that Firefox 91.0.1 (64 bits) freezes on my PC Windows 10 when I try to download a file, or even to modify download settings in the parameters page.

So, I have deleted all hystory, cookies, and cache and I started in "fail safe mode" (extensions disabled), but same problem.... So I created a fresh new profile, and it worked Ok ! No freeze, no problem.

I have probably a conflicting setting in my main profile, but which one ? How to find it ?

Thank you by advance if you you have any idea to help me.

Firefox is seriously messed up after upgrading to version 91. Many websites that had color and objects on the page now are just black and white with most content missing. For example Google Calendar has lost all color. The issue impacts most websites - some with moderate impact and others with serious impact. Basically Firefox 91 is no longer usable.

How do I fix this?

I've been using Firefox for years but I am stuck with this problem. Firefox just updated to version 91.0 (64-bit) and now webpages are not being rendered correctly as per the attached screenshot. It seems to be a selective CSS issue and it is across all pages.

I have tried restarting the computer, clearing the cache, and changing the theme. This is happening on two different Macs both running macOS v 11.4.

The first image shows the page in Firefox, and the second in Safari (and how it used to look in Firefox before version 91).

Does anyone have any idea why this is happening?
