As soon as the latest version arrived (which of course it did without my permission, as usual,) I will click on something which always used to open a new tab but now opens a new window. I have tried to screenshot my settings page which clearly is checked in the box that says open new tab, NOT new window, but my mouse does not show up a screenshot choice like it usually does. I am a computer novice with a brain disability so any explanation from you will have to be ridiculously simple. thanks so much

Since the last two updates of 92.0 and 92.01, there is a major lag issue with my bookmark list. When you hover the cursor over a particular folder or link, it takes forever for it to be highlighted. In addition, the favicon associated with any particular link takes forever to populate. The bookmarks worked perfect prior to version 92.0. Being that I am a WIN 7 user, it would appear that whatever the developers did beginning with 92.0, had great affect to WIN 7 users, which implies that maybe other WIN 7 users may also be having the identical issues with their bookmarks. The developers should fix this issue ASAP in the next update. There is no excuse for this issue to be occurring.

I can't for the life of me explain why enlarging these fonts is not easily done. The font is tiny! Not everyone is 28, know what I mean? I've reviewed what's been written on this before in support, but I see nothing very useful. Surely, I can't be the only person who needs to enlarge these fonts. Please help!

Using Firefox browser version 92.0 on new Dell Inspiron 5515. While using Yahoo email, frequently receive error message bordered in red reading "No Internet Connection." Internet is working fine for every other website. Tried Yahoo email using Microsoft Edge and this message is never received.

Also, when viewing news articles with photos, the photos often never appear. Occasionally, if I wait long enough the photos eventually surface. And once again, these same photos display almost instantly using Microsoft Edge.

Hi I have a new MacBook Air M1 chip computer. I exported all of my bookmarks on my old Macbook Pro to an HTML file and then transferred the HTML into my new computer. I researched and followed the instructions for importing the HTML. That went fine - to a point. Now all of my old bookmarks appear as one big group in the OTHER BOOKMARKS category. When I open BOOKMARKS>MANAGE BOOKMARKS they don't even appear. When I open BOOKMARKS and scroll down to OTHER BOOKMARKS they are all there. Here's the problem - in my old computer they were organized into folders but now they are not. Since they don't even appear in the manager I can't even begin to follow the instructions for organizing them. Also, I now have duplicate folders for all of the following : Other Bookmarks / Mozilla Firefox / Recent Tags / Bookmarks Toolbar. AND, Again, these duplicates do not appear when I open the Manager so I can't begin to delete any of them. Please help Daniel

On "dark", "light", or "Alpenglow" theme, there are black square corners poking out of the (rounded) window corners - which bugs me.

This is not a problem on "System theme". There are no black squares poking and out it looks perfectly round.

I am running Firefox on PopOS on an Intel NUC, but I have tried it on multiple VMs and experience the same result (92.01).

I have had several situations lately where I was able to log into accounts but the page would not display correctly. When I contacted the account representative, I was informed that I could only use google chrome. I tried it and it works. My question is why will the page display correctly using google chrome but not with firefox and is there a way to correct this.

Every time I close firefox the cookies file in my profile folder "cookies.sqlite" makes a backup of itself "cookies.sqlite.bak" so when I open firefox again I start out fresh unless I change name of the file back to what it supposed to be then I could launch firefox back with the old cookies with no visible issues.

So, how do I make it so the firefox doesn't automatically make a backup of my old cookies and replace it a new file?

Many responses with instructions on how to open a link or page in a new tab end up with the new tab opening all the way at the end of the last tab in a window (with series of open tabs) open instead of adjacent to the page where you originally clicked on the link to open a new tab.

I cant say enough how annoying getting rid of this feature is. I have been using MS Edge as a result until I can figure out how to have tabs in Mozilla open right next to the page I was on previously and not after the final tab in the window I have open.

My Firefox browser (92.0.1 64-bit) has been very slow.

And, the "GO back" history does not work well with some Yahoo pages (like, Finance, email...), it keeps fill in the current page each time when I move the page down and up and thus prevents me from being able to go back to the previous pages.

Thank you in advance for any kind assistance on this.
