Any ideas how to remove those plus signs in order to be able to translate phrases?

I would suggest adapting the Firefox icon to the new Big Sur design. Unfortunately, among the most common applications, Firefox is the only one that has still kept the old design (which makes Firefox seem like something out of date and not very obsolete in appearance, while in reality it is a concentrate of care and progress).

The user observes the evolution of an app from the thick icon design, so I can't explain how Firefox can still own its design (which unfortunately doesn't align with the dock). On iOS / iPadOS you have the appropriate icon, why not transfer it directly to macOS Big Sur at this point (thus unifying the interface itself)?

Nothing to say about the rest, you are fabulous and the best (I just suggest a hint of transparency in the panel bar).

With regard

Is there a way to backup 'Cookies and Site Data' so if a refresh is needed, all permissions aren't lost

Under about:preferences#privacy there is a section 'Cookies and Site Data'. I have my settings set to CUSTOM and block all cookies. I then have managed my exceptions. I did a refresh resently, all that was lost. The best I can do currently is to have wordpad open and manually type each line out in my exceptions and then if needed in the future, I could copy and paste. There might be a better way that I do not know. I do know by default, the 'Managed Exceptions' under 'Cookies and Site Data' does not save if 'Refreshed'. Please address a better process and not my choice on blocking all cookies, thank you.

I have two problems with my browser. 1) On Windows 10 I get the push notifications if the browser not in full-screen mode but if you do full-screen you get no push notifications so that leads me to my other problem, I wanted to put the firefox app in the priority list for Windows 10 notifications but the Firefox symbol will not show up on their list of apps, why not?

Hello,

I upgraded my FireFox to the latest version 88.0 today, and noticed some changes on right click menu. In the old version, the keyboard shortcut key is a to copy a link, but now it was changed to L. That is really inconvenient. As you know, when you right click a link using the mouse, your right hand is still holding the mouse, and not easy to press the letter L on the keyboard.

The old menu option is "Copy Link Locaton", but the new one is "Copy Link".

Is it possible to customize the keyboard shortcut of right click menu, please?

Thank you! Brian

On normal firefox 88.0 (64-bit) this works OK

on firefox nightly 90.0a1 (2021-04-26) (64-bit) this is broken

Normal window behavior on all applications on Ubuntu the window will stay open yet get pushed to become behind all other open windows when you mouse middle button click on the windows top "Title Bar"

By default firefox will NOT display this "Title Bar" on standard normal firefox you enable showing that "Title Bar" by hamburger menu -> Customize Toolbar -> checkmark ON Title Bar ... well that menu is now gone from nightly as of last week however through other settings I am able to enable the "Title Bar" however this push to go behind behavior fails to happen ... please fix ... over the years this same feature similarily disappears for a few weeks only to get fixed again so I have hope it will get fixed .... Please put this feature into checklist when making changes to the code !!!!!

thanks for making firefox the BEST browser by far ... especially on Android

When I open a first Firefox instance from taskbar in Windows 10, if I do a Google search then right click on any of the results, then select "Open Link in New Tab", FF lalways opens that link in a new window, not a new tab as requested. The new window takes up the right hand half of my display which means I have to manually size it larger or maximize it. This behavior continues as long as I use the first FF window to open any links - they never open in a tab of the original window and only create lots of windows - this is very hard to deal with IMHO. Now here's the weird part - If I use one of the new windows, then FF behaves just as it should. Do a Google search and all links can be opened in new tabs in the new window, as requested. I did not notice this strange behavior until about April 10 when I believe I accepted a new update to FF.
