CMD+Mouse Wheel to Zoom in Firefox for macOS [Fix Firefox 109.0 Intentional Bug]

Firefox 109.0 for macOS introduced an intentional bug that disables the popular highly useful zoom in/out using cmd+mouse wheel. Mozilla claims that this engineered bug "avoids accidental zooming and matches the behavior of other web browsers on macOS." However, it causes severe trouble for productivity users and the large user community who use a mouse and keyboard.

Could you please let me know how the highly popular and practical zoom in/out using cmd+mouse wheel could be re-enabled in Firefox 109.0?

Also, I would like to ask Mozilla to respect user decisions and let them choose whether they prefer to disable Ctrl or Cmd + trackpad or mouse wheel (scrolls the page instead of zooming) or use it.

Thanks

Yesterday for most of the day Yahoo mail was working fine. Last night I was able to pull up my emails, but all the controls were not working, Can't delete, arrow up or down, settings won't come up. It's like all the tabs are not highlighted to click on. I haven't done any updates, nothing changed. It's not Yahoo, works fine in Chrome.

Hello,

When I'm trying to import passwords from other browsers (Safari or Brave) or CSV files generated by Safari and Brave nothing happens. There's not even an option to import the passwords from Safari, look at the attached screenshot. From Brave however the option is available, but even if I check that box nothing happens when I do the import. Do you know why? I've tried it on both Windows and macOS.

I am a longtime user of Firefox. Firefox is my default browser...however all saved URL's are being opened by Safari. Safari also agrees that Firefox is my default browser. This started happening a few days ago. It does not seem to matter what browser I generate the URL address. All open in Safari. I have noticed that Safari is running very slowly, almost crawling along. Safari runs very, very slow even when Firefox is closed. Firefox is operating at all times as it did before this happening...fast. I know one is acting on the other somehow. All of this occured at the same time

My extensions take up a lot of space in my toolbar and I'd love to hide all of them. However - every 'solution' to the problem tells me to right click the extension straight from the toolbar and click 'Hide from Toolbar'.

I do remember this option existing, however I couldn't find it since last update and I'm assuming it was removed. Is there any way to use it again?

^ (Small note, It would also be lovely if I could add them to the Extensions add-on in the toolbar, as that would really be a better use for it other than overflow)

Frequently when I update Firefox something stops working the way I want it to. So after the last update I disabled updates. That was a while ago (version 89) and my browser was getting pretty stale. So I backed everything up, reenabled updates, and now I have version 104.

And, of course, something is broken now. The context menus when I right click are not functioning as before. The userChrome.css is still there in the chrome folder in my profile and has the same contents. The option toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.stylesheets is set to true. But it doesn't work anymore. I added a line to change the color of the tab toolbar and that worked. So userChrome.css is being read and acted upon. But the other command (I whittled it down to just one additional command for testing) is ignored.

Here is what my userChrome.css looks like right now:

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

  1. context-openlinkintab { display:none!important; }
  2. TabsToolbar{ background-color: #CCCCCC !important }

But the "Open Link in New Tab" still appears in the context menu when I right click a link. It didn't do this before the upgrade to 104. Did something break in between version 89 and 104 or is it some other oddity?

Any ideas?

macOS Catalina 10.15.7, Firefox 108.0.1

For as long as I remember, Firefox has ordered the window list that is displayed by selecting Window in the top Menu Bar in the order that the windows were created. This past week after a computer restart, the order has changed to alphabetic based on the title of the window. How can I get back to the previous method, ordered by creation time?

I have tried disabling add-ons/ exensions, disabling auto-fill, downgrading security, reinstalling (even the ESR edition), deleting Firefox files from the library/application_support - but it doesn't simply work. Not sure if this is an OS issue.

Any ideas would really help. Getting the below info on the about:crashes each time:
