After updating to 89.0 on Windows 10, I don't see a speaker icon on the tab that's currently playing audio unless I hover over the tab. In to previous releases, any tab that was playing audio had a speaker icon that showed you which tab(s) are playing.

Where are the Favorites? Why are the Tabs now without borders making them hard to see? Why Can I no longer submit Feedback without logging on to some corporate account??

1. WHERE ARE THE FAVORITES? When displaying Favorites, it now just shows a blank bar under the URL field.

2. There is no border around each tab making them blend together & hard to see, especially when there are many tabs open in a window.

3. Why can't I submit Feedback *without* using another account to log in?

If you want to make Firefox better, you need to accept the feedback WITHOUT having your users sign in to:

   ● Social media account
   ● Organization login
   ● Crowdicity account

I HATE FIREFOX 89.0 (64-Bit)!!!!!!!

If these are not fixed right away, I'm switching back to Chrome.

See attached Screenshots.

I used to have a nice blue strip across the top of any active window. It is now grey, which I find depressing and it is no longer possible to see when a window has gone inactive. How do I get my blue back? I tried downloading Firefox colors but when I tried to use it it wouldn't load, I waited and waited then gave up. I cannot take a screenshot of the strip I am talking about as is it outside the screenshot field. (Above it.) Many thanks, Kitty

When the first character is type into the web search box on the default Firefox homepage, the cursor jumps to the address box and opens the search suggestions. Was this changed intended or is it a bug? This change in behavior renders the web search useless.

I tried the usual debug steps, disabling add-ons, turning option off and on, with no change in behavior.

I've been on Firefox for 15 years, I suppose - it's really the only browser I've used. I've seen the product go steadily downhill, but I've stuck with it - because (until last week) Firefox had the best support for people with visual disabilities - like myself.

But 89 is the last straw. The new UX, the new setup for tabs is simply unusable for me - and I suspect for many with visual impairment. I can't even see the tabs distinctly.

It's a bloody shame. Firefox was a great product. Firefox - 20 or so versions ago - was better than anything else out there. But now.

It's unusable for me - and I'm sure many others.

I'm not saying this to gripe. I'm saying this so that, hopefully someone in Mozilla will change the strategy of a new release every ten days, and go back to a stable, usable, secure browser.

But it's a sad day.

The latest download changed the interface. I cannot see the top toolbars, tabs, etc. because they are a very faint grey. I did try changing the theme but not happy with the results. And when I type into the search box it jumps to the address bar which (I dislike immensely) is distracting. Why have a search box at all? But it is my preference so I may be out of luck.

This is the first time I have considered another browser as I have been with Firefox a long time.

Is there a way to go back to the interface I could use?

New theme is absolutely not contrasting. The font merges with the background, no separators are visible between the elements, although the tabs opposite are separated from the page. And a huge number of other annoying little things. You suggest choosing a different theme, but there are the same problems and an additional annoying background pattern.

Please make it possible to return to the classic theme and stop changing the interface and familiar controls. I am shaking from every update notification, because i expect everything will break again.

I also advise you to read reviews on news sites dedicated to this update. Many people unhappy with these changes.

I found a partial solution (about: config -> browser.proton.enabled -> FALSE ) problem, but as it became known, it will soon stop working.

I understand that FireFox a free product and I would shut up, but it upsets me that the tool that I have been using almost all my life has gone bad. And second, and even worse, the Internet is increasingly dominated by Chrome, remaining without competition.

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.
