Firefox's new edition was downloaded today. Since then my screensaver slideshow doesn't come on. Instead, I got a message that there are no pictures in my library. I went to screensaver in the settings on my PC desktop, and it shows that it should be active. HELP!

I admit, I loathe the new Firefox look. With burning passion. I did get the tabs to look like they did previously, which helps tremendously. Unfortunately, this fix will likely be temporary.

However, my actual question is - in the landing/startup page where I can pin sites I often visit, how do I return the old nice and large icons that were actually unique at a very quick glance? The new ones are indistinct, and horribly spaced from each other. I use the normal browser, not on phone, i-anything, or any other mobile device. They don't need to be a mile apart from each other, and teeny tiny and similar on top of that.

Just... is there any option for me to swap them, even temporarily, back to how they were?

I've recently struck problems trying to download pdf and html files from webpage links. I've been using Firefox for a year, but these problems only seem to have been happening in perhaps the last three months. One of the online accounts I was trying to download from - I rang them - suggested I try using Google Chrome, and I was successful on that browser. So why won't they download for me on Firefox? [I've played around with the settings for downloading apps, and have read a number of previous questions on this forum, none of which have addressed my particular problem.] You must have come across this before, so what do you advise? I'm using Windows 10, fully updated. An opened html file looks like the attached screenshot.

I recently (Accidentally, I might add) updated firefox. I used to have clear glass, windows 7 styled tabs for Firefox, just so I am able to see behind my tabs and onto other programs and such. This new update completely removed the ability to do that for whatever reason, and I have to pick between like 4 cookie-cutter "Minimalist" Discord/Twitter, "Simplistic" looking "themes". It's been a far bit of time since I managed and fumbled my way into getting the clear glass look. Something like the image attached, except with Firefox. Now it's gone, and I would like some assistance or guidance on how I can get it back to the way it was.

I am beyond pissed, and have already turned off auto updates. Any help would be appreciated.

At first blush, I'm not finding this "makeover" particularly helpful.

In particular, now the window banner background color is invariable. Most apps follow Windows theme. But not FF - colors do not change, as they should, when window becomes active. Curiously, the show all Bookmarks | History (probably as they are native Windows dialogs), do not have this annoyance.

Was this considered an improvement, or is it a mistake? Yes, I have tried to fix this in Settings but find nothing relevant.

Thank you.

With FF open to a banking site, Excel and other apps (2nd FF instance) will not accept alpha/numeric keyboard input. Arrow keys and enter key still work. Logged out from bank, close the FF window, bring up new tab (Goggle) and type "123" in search bar, then Excel works okay. Also works if I use Edge to get to my bank accounts.

Work around #1: save bank page on desktop, close the on-line page, and open it from desktop. Work around #2: Use Edge.

Added info: problem is not consistent. Sometimes things work okay, sometimes not.

Is there a way to save a FF URL as a file in linux, from within FF?

I would like to save URLs to the file system as actionable files. Expecting to launch the default browser by double-clicking that file or opening a new tab if running, although I can see where that might get weird and launch only the file's source browser and not the default browser; not a problem as yet.

Note that I know this is not <Save Page As…/Web Page, complete> that saves the entire page content in a relative directory, or <Save Page As…/Web Page, HTML only> that saves page code to a file system link but without content. Also, not interested in FF internal solutions related to bookmarks, pocket, or favorites. FF is busy enough and my goal is to save links with my file system organization instead of duplicating that inside an application.

This is something I once did routinely with Safari on Mac OS, but eOS doesn't map without a default desktop. I expected FF to have a menu selection, contextual or not, or key combo common to all platforms, but I found nothing and very little online comment about this.

As a workaround, I can accomplish this is by dragging a highlighted URL from the FF address field to an open file manager directory window. The test file was under a reasonable 200 bytes and launched FF when double-clicked. However, this is cumbersome if the environment isn't ready and waiting, requiring opening a file manager without a desktop, navigating the file system, reducing maximized windows, and stacking windows within reach. Also, copying URL text can't be pasted into the file manager to create a new file; just thought I'd try it.

Short of installing a third party desktop, am I missing a simple way to do this with FF?

Bonus Question: what does the attached icon mean to you? I thought the little arrow on the known "code" document icon was mimicking Windows' shortcut style, but it's not an alias and I honestly don't know what the arrow means. If you action the file of this icon it opens a FF tab as I wrote above, but won't launch "code" even if asked, only readable from within code.

Although I thought I'd downloaded and added Lockwise to FF I cannot see it in the list of extensions (so maybe the install failed)?

Yesterday, my search engine, which was regularly Google, got bugged by searchmarquis. After hours of trying to resolve the issue, I resorted to refreshing Firefox. Once the browser was up and running, I tried to recover my passwords and my logins in Firefox Lockwise. I followed steps from pages on the support and previously used solutions on the site, but none have been successful. I have a folder entitled, "Old Firefox Data," and tried importing it into Firefox Lockwise, however, every attempt was met with an error message.
