My Sessions and Session Boss know I have all my tabs open presently. I can't see the tabs & I can't right click a bookmark and see a 2nd tab open. I had the tabs at the top and just under the bookmarks bar. Now it is just one long blank bar. I disabled and then re-enabled proton, which is the worst upgrade experience ever. I changed to a simple theme, still no tabs. I downloaded the previous version 88, but it will start a new profile. I just want where I was 2 hours ago. I'll attach an image of the left upper screen with the blank tab bar.

For a couple of days I cannot get Firefox to run normally again. It is stuck in a weird looking state as showed in the screencap attached. It opens and I can click on some buttons from the interface but I cannot close it or enter settings, cannot browse or anything, it opens but its functionality is completely broken... I suspect this is following a recent windows update but I'm not sure...

Tried starting it in safe mode and refreshing the browser but it did not work. about:config does not work. I can type in the address bar but when I hit enter nothing happens.

Any suggestions of how could this be fixed without reinstalling it?

Thanks.

Ever since IE changed to tabs on top firefox coders followed like mindless automatons without any regard to/for Mozilla community and users. We are sick and tired of being ignored. We want/need tabs bellow address bar. Now, tell us how to simply get tabs below address bar or tell the coders to provide us with the option. And, we don’t care about any excuses as previously provided or outright ignored by them.

My firefox installed a new update, 89, and now my tabs are missing, except that the active tab is floating down at the center bottom of the screen. i can still navigate with keyboard shortcuts, but i don't know how many i have open, what they are, and personally DO NOT like navigating with shortcuts if i don't have to.

why is it necessary to keep messing with tabs? weren't they just fine below the address bar back in the day? How is ruining the user experience worth whatever was even trying to be done here?

image is how my firefox looks right now

In version 89 running on windows there is no "options" setting in the three bar file. Previously I had things running so that if I opened a new window it came up with my chossen browser (Startpage). Now if I do that it opens a new tab instead of a window and does so in Firefox. So then I try to find "options" but its not there. So I go to settings and it offers me an option to open in tabs instead of new windows. Implication is that the default is a new window. SO I make sure thats not ticked and I close firefox and reopen it. No difference. Then I come at it the other way ie to tell the tab to despay my home page but it wont let me do that either. Choices there are only a blank page or (yes you guessed it) Firefox. All help gratefully recieved.

I just upgraded to the new release. There used to be a button with three dots toward the right side of the search/address bar. I used it to email a link to the current page. Two clicks and I'm editing the email. I don't see the button in this new release. How do I email a link to the current page? Ideally in one or two clicks.

I use portableapps FF on windows 10. I just updated to 89 from 82 and now all my menus in the toolbar (i.e. my bookmarks as folders) now are much longer due to extra space between each item. Where I didn't have to scroll before I do now.

How can I change it back to what it was before so the pulldown menus I've tailored with no scrolling required will again work as before.

I have gone back to 82 because of this.

Hi, FF 89.0b2 Developer edition now contains a "fake editable" search field at the home page (the sentence contains in the class attribute so I used it here), when one start typing in it and the letters appear in the address bar.

For me personally this is partly non-intuitive partly annoying. I never met a scenario in UI of other programs, when typing in one place (where the caret is) show actual letters at another place.

Is this feature is here to stay or are there plans to to make it customizable? I used ff home page search for ages, now I installed a new tab home page extension with manually setting www.google.com in it.

Thanks

I downloaded and installed the firefox app and nothing happens. No menu. No tabs. The word "firefox" appears in the upper left corner of my screen and a "." appears under the app, indicating that it is open. The screen "blinked" momentarily when I opened the app. I am a longtime user of Firefox and this same thing happened this morning when I opened the app, which I uninstalled, and then downloaded and installed this new app. Same problem.

Good Morning

Today I had to repair Firefox and after restarting, I felt a strange scrolling sensation, it was not the normal Firefox scrolling, I even thought I had openend the wrong browser...so I went check about:config , and found some values where changed as new default values:

general.smoothScroll.mouseWheel.durationMaxMS 200 general.smoothScroll.mouseWheel.durationMinMS 50

I tought it was me the problem so I installed an older version of Firefox (80.0) in order to compare, and found a normal scrolling and those values:

general.smoothScroll.mouseWheel.durationMaxMS 400 general.smoothScroll.mouseWheel.durationMinMS 200

I think this is a mistake from devs, if i wanted to have horrible scrolling, I could just use Edge instead of Firefox, could you please bring the original scrolling back to Firefox?

Thanks

Attached is a sample of how web pages display. These can either initially display this way or, as in this example, the page opened correctly, I stepped away for a few minutes and when I viewed the page again it looked like the example. I can have a page open and it is displaying correctly, then open a new tab and go to a different site and the text will look like the example.

I have cleared the cache, dumped all the cookies. Restarting the browser (I do this many times a day) will fix the current page but eventually another page will display like this.

I running version 84.0.2 64bit on a Mac Pro Mojave. I don't have this problem with other browsers like Chrome or Safari. I never see it on my Windows 10 system.

Using FF 88.0.1 in both Linux Mint and Windows 10 and without syncing add-ons, The "New Tab Override" looses my granted permission and opens a new tab on it's own Options/Preferences page, where it shows that permission is granted.

The simple solution I found that clearing the Startup cache restores functionality.

Already reported this on the add-on's Github site, which directed me back here.
