Hello,

I just installed the new update. The new tab design is totally confusing/unclear to me. Especially the fact that the new tabs don't have a "seperator-line" to the next tab. Thats totally disturbing to me. It's really difficult for me to keep the overview about my normally around 60 tabs now. Is there an option to switch back to the old tabs look and feel? Are there other options to customize the look of the tab bar?

Thanks in advance and Greetz!

Hi to all the developers:

To take screenshoots was a great success, and it was quite agile to take snapshots with the "page actions" menu, but the last update (FF 88.0) disappeared that option.

Please return the "Take screenshoot" button" to the "page actions" menu. This seems to be an unimportant thing, but having the button on the toolbar reduces space, especially if we take into account that there are other buttons showing information. (Img1)

But the worst thing is when some web pages appear in pop-up windows that do not show any buttons. So, how can I take a screenshot if the capture button does not appear. (Img2)

Please keep in mind that there are some people that need to take several screenshots and it is faster to activate the capture and select the desired area both with the mouse.

Since the feedback page seems to be not working, I write it here with the greatest respect, to get this to the developers.

Thank you in advance.

I deplore the way the browser looks now and want the old look back... I have vision problems and am totally ignorant about computers. I finally found FF and the last version was PERFECT. I could clearly see it, knew how to use it, and LOVED it and I WANT IT BACK. SIMPLY... Because I am so ignorant, the instructions I have seen so far might have been written in a foreign language. Is there a SIMPLE way to restore the OLD LOOK and feel. Keeping all the new security and other stuff is fine...although I was fine with the way it was, but I will have to find another browser if someone cannot help me fix the image back to the way it was. Please, why do they upgrade this stuff and not leave a way to keep the old look for those of us who don't want to change? If anyone can help me...I would really appreciate it. Thank you.

"What's the point of a 'tab' if there's no tab? Text floating around at the top of the page is not a tab."

Please, PLEASE put back the space between the tabs in the Proton version of Firefox. As a web designer, I don't understand how any designer on your staff or any supervisor would okay what looks like a seamless tab bar. The UX is horrible.

I've temporarily changed the about:config to mimic Photon. But I understand you are going to get rid of that ability in the about:config file.

Why do you tweak a decent UI into an unusable one? This is becoming an epidemic. Similar things happen on Facebook and with Photoshop (where "upgrades" make parts of the application unusable—that is, they no longer work).

SYSTEM SPECS: OS: Windows 7 System Type: 64-bit Operating System RAM: 2 GB Firefox Version: 87.0 (64-bit Installation)

I want to try the new Proton UI for Firefox. I followed all these steps: 1. Go to "about:config". 2. Search for "proton" and set the "browser.proton.enabled" from false to true. 3. Restart Firefox.

But that didn't work. Is the Proton UI no longer supported in Windows 7? Or some other problem...

Whoever thought Firefox 89 was a good idea is not someone with whom I agree. 89 is awful - I disregarded the update notice for days but then got sick of the reminder. BAD idea on my part. Is there any way to get rid of the topmost "tab" - they ARE NOT tabs - bar? I really liked the previous tabs that LOOKED LIKE TABS and DID NOT TAKE UP MORE ROOM on the page. Can I go back to the previous version? This one is really bad. Like, REALLY bad. Firefox "developers" need to give an option to check out the new update before committing to it.

I use the browser-integrated snipping/screen-shot tool constantly. Today I discovered that it is no longer available from the three dot menu in the address bar. Why? Can it be restored? Has it been relocated? Discontinued? This is one of the primary features that I rely on in Firefox.

June 7, 2021

Hi There,

Used to be there were three dots in the search bar, and when I clicked it I had the option of airdropping a website to my phone, which I found to be considerably convenient; especially if I want to text somebody a website or what have you, something I am browsing on my computer.

Is this no longer possible with the latest update?

Thanks

I recently noticed that my Firefox appearance is different than it had been. The top header is white (instead of dark) and the space between lines in the bookmark list is excessively large. I have tried to find the source of this change by changing themes, but to no avail. This change occurred around the time that a new revision of Firefox was installed. Surely Firefox would not have made this change? I hate the appearance. It makes reading and browser use much more difficult. Any suggestions on how to get back the previous theme settings? And if Firefox did indeed make this change, then I say shame on you for doing so without the user's permission or providing an option to opt out of such a change.
