Ich weiß nicht warum Mozillia uns unbedingt Proton aufzwingen möchte, warum kann man nicht 2 gleisig fahren. Ich finde diese Oberfläche sehr störend. Nach dem update auf Firefox 91 ist der Abstand zwischen den Lesezeichen wieder vergrößert, obwoh ich alle Einstellungmit Proton in der config deaktiviert habe.

Gibt es eine Möglichkeit, die auch für "nichtprogrammierer" umzusetzen ist, den "alten Zustand" wieder herzustellen oder zwingt uns Mozilla nach jahrerlanger zufriedenheit einen neuen Browser zu suchen?

Danke für die Hilfe

I just refreshed firefox because it was constantly hanging. However, my library icon is now missing. I have the bookmark star in the address bar but I no longer have the Library icon in the ribbon. When I click on the menu bar Bookmarks is shown but Library is not. When I click on Bookmarks I see a list of saved sites, but that's not a convenient way to get to them. Does anyone know how to get the Library icon back?

Thank you

One time, when using MAC I accidentally set a website to always open in a different container. Now any time I attempt to launch this website, I receive the MAC prompt "Open this site in your assigned container?", where I have two options: Open in Current Container and Open in Assigned Container. There is also a checkbox labeled "Remember my decision for this site", however even if I tick this checkbox and select Open in Current Container, I still get this same prompt every subsequent time I visit this website.

For some reason after the version 87 update, I cannot get any updates for Firefox unless I completely remove my Firefox browser application including all registry entries under Software for Firefox and Mozilla. Then I was able to obtain version 91.0 by installing a fresh copy of Firefox. However, I still get the message under Settings: "Your browser is being managed by your organization". Clicking on that message shows that the policy DisableAppUpdate is true.

I searched the directories C:/Windows/PolicyDefinitions and C:/Windows/PolicyDefinitions/en-US, but could not find the offending poicy DisableAppUpdate. This policy is set to true by the system administrator. I am the only user and have administrator privileges. How can I set this policy to false or remove this policy? I want to get updates!!

Thank you, Peter Nevard

When they updated to 89, large spaces were created in between the bookmarked web sites when the window unfolds. So the bookmarks at the bottom don't fit in the window, and to get to the ones I can't see, I have to click the arrow at the bottom. But making it worse, is that if I do go to the bottom, the next time I open the bookmark tab, the list will open at the bottom (it doesn't revert to the top). So I'd have to scroll up to get to the ones at the top.

I list my bookmarks in the order they're in so I can get to the ones I go to most often as fast as possible. So they're at the top - I don't have to scroll far to get to them. I also use the "Other Bookmarks" tab since that's at the top. But sometimes that's hidden and I have to scroll up to get to access that as well.

Also, this update changed the size of the command windows - the copy/paste window, the "open in new tab" window, and the window to get the correct spelling of the word. They're so big, they run from the top of the screen to bottom, instead of a small square. So you'll have to scroll way up to get to the command or word you want.

I can't stand this.

There was a simple work-around. Changing the proton preferences to false. But they removed them with 90. I posted a message on these boards a few weeks ago asking for them not to be removed. Of course it didn't do any good.

There supposedly is a "fix" to this, but it has to do with CSS - whatever the heck that is and I'm not even going to attempt to figure it out. Fixing this should NOT be complicated at all (like the proton preferences). And besides, even that CSS thing won't bring everything back to what is was. So why bother?

More scrolling, bigger command windows, etc., are not that big of a deal, but that's not the point. Why can't they leave well enough alone? What part of "If it ain't broke, don't fix it," do they not understand? If I wanted a tedious way to access my bookmarks, I'd use Chrome!

I know it won't happen, but how can we get them to reset the bookmarks and command windows back to the way they were? Is that asking too much? Ask a silly question...

If their objective is to lose Firefox users, congratulations. It just might work.

System : Linux Mint 20.2 FireFox : 91.0.1 (64-bit)

Plugins/extensions "Hoxx VPN" and "SetupVPN" seems not to work anymore This is since FireFox 91.0.1 It takes a long time (about 30sec) connecting to the VPN, with no result. (no connection)

Both say something like : Result

<country> (SERVERS) 3.11.4 In some cases VPN extensions are not enough to bypass the firewall in your network. Extensions have only limited permissions on your computer and have limited capabilities.

We highly recommend to download our desktop client. It uses a very sophisticated VPN software and can bypass most of the firewalls.

I use html pages on an internal hard drive that link to pdf documents. For some reason since Version 91.0.2 was installed I can not get the pdf documents to open with Adobe Acrobat Reader DC.The new version insist on opening the pdf's in the Firefox web browser. When I click on a pdf link at an external website the files will open in Adobe Acrobat. I used the code below to test the open in Adobe Acrobat execution and it works on the w3School example. When I run it strait from my hard drive the document opens in the Firefox web browser.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <head>
    <title>Title of the document</title>

  <body>
    <h1>PDF Example</h1>
    <p>Open a PDF file <a href="datasheet_cube-model-715.pdf">example</a>.</p>

Please let me know if there is a solution. Thank you,

Hi, so my problem was exist for several times both on my PC and laptop and can't figure it out keyword to fix my issue and tbh i don't know what trigger this behavior. When browsing sometimes came situation can't type anything using my keyboard, even when outside firefox.

my current workaround to encounter this, i just need open any web with place I can type like search bar or text box and type there then back to normal (so I guessing it's maybe related to when I open web with this kind search box then move to other tab it's stuck on that box? but i can't make sure, it just happen randomly but often). and I don't know if this issues related to windows or just firefox because I didn't know the trigger so i can't recreate this on other browser.

If anyone know how to fix this, please help me.

thanks in advance
