The new update released hours ago has introduced problems that Google Chrome had, which is the very first reason in the first place that I left Chrome to get Firefox.

The menus have been made larger, with more clutter. This is especially apparent in every instance of bookmarks. The text and icons and space between the bookmarks have all been increased in size, making it more annoying and less clean to use, as well as looking unpleasant. No settings will allow me to zoom out on the menus or tabs or bookmarks. The tabs and the prompts have also been redesigned along with menus and it looks awful. I left Chrome to avoid the style and it has unfortunately followed me to Firefox.

Everything about this update has made the browser worse and more akin to Chrome, which I heavily dislike. I understand this is nitpicking and doesn't matter much. I still would like the old version back. Is there a way I can download the old version of Firefox anywhere? Heavy thanks to whoever reads and responds.

Hi, first of thanks for reading and possibly responding.

The issue I am having has been going on for a few days. In websites where youtube video's are embedded if I try and play the video on the said site it will load and display an error message An error occurred. Please try again later. If I visit the video on youtube, link provided in the video itself, then it plays just fine. Error is not restricted to one site but anything that embeds youtube videos.

I have also come across some strange youtube.com issues, when I am on the main website you get the thumbnails of video's but no time duration are displayed in the thumbnail, neither are the 3 dots where you can have one of the videos removed (not a big deal and maybe this was implemented a while ago I don't know tbh). When I play a video, as in visit the video page on youtube the side bar videos sometimes do and sometimes don't display time duration.

Please check attached image to see what I mean. Left is without said timecodes, right is what it almost should be.

What addons do I use: Ublock Origin is the only one worth noting but even without it the weird thing still occurs. I don't use any plug ins that correspond with youtube.

I am using the latest Firefox on Windows 10.

Things I have tried thus far to resolve it: - make sure Firefox is up to date - try with and without addblocker (Ublock) - remove Adobe flash entirely - refresh Firefox and clear all data and cookies 9tried this I think 3 times now, no change) - looked through older posts with similar issues but most links regarding html5 on youtube were 404 and sometimes the solution stated things like 'cause by some video helped addon' which I do not use or updating Flash

Am I the only one with this issue?

I'm trying to take off this "Extension (Tabliss)" tag on my url. I have followed the instructions down below from another Firefox support forum: https://discourse.mozilla.org/t/make-addressbar-text-extension-name-of-the-extension-shorter-or-hide/28026/3

The instructions I followed are listed below:

"Users can apply custom style rules to modify Firefox’s toolbar area by creating a userChrome.css file. This takes about 10 minutes so when you have time to take it slowly and carefully:

(1) Set up your chrome folder and userChrome.css file following the five six steps in this article:

https://www.userchrome.org/how-create-userchrome-css.html 45

I have a boring video there if you like demonstrations.

(2) This is the code to paste into the file. You can edit the file using Notepad or a better editor. Make sure to keep it in a plain text format with a .css file extension (not .css.txt).

See improved rule down in: Make addressbar text "Extension (Name Of The Extension)" shorter or hide

/*

  Hide Extension Name in the identity area unless
  hovered for half a second (updated for Fx80)
  • /
  1. identity-box.extensionPage #identity-icon-labels,
  2. identity-box.extensionPage #identity-icon-label {
 visibility: collapse !important;
 transition: visibility 250ms ease-in-out;

}

  1. identity-box.extensionPage:hover #identity-icon-labels,
  2. identity-box.extensionPage:hover #identity-icon-label {
 visibility: visible !important;
 transition: visibility 250ms ease-in-out 500ms;

}

(3) Firefox should read the file at its next startup and apply it to every extension page you load."

Edit: So, yeah, I need help getting this tag off. I'm new to Firefox so it could be something obvious I'm missing. I have also tried CTRL+SHIFT+R to reload the page for changes and also closed and reopened my Firefox entirely.

Thanks in advance.

Been having this issue for the last few weeks where Firefox just won't load YouTube properly. In particular, livestreams won't play, chat always show as "disconnected from chat" and I can't even access the profile menu (clicking on my profile pic on the top left just shows a loading icon forever).

Tried the following without any luck: 1. Safemode 2. Clearing all cache 3. Refresh firefox (When I first did a refresh, it started working again, then I went to sleep and the next morning the same problem is back again)

Any help would be much appreciated.

A recent Firefox update has totally disrupted our ability to print from browser windows. There used to be a "Print Preview" button that allowed us to set things up the way we wanted them. That's now missing. As a result, stuff that used to cost us for ten pages now costs us for twenty pages. Also, when we print double-sided, the second side prints upside down.

This strikes me and my wife as a horrible development, and we would like to go back to the old version ASAP!

Enabling DNS over HTTPS dose not give me FULL control over this. I should be able to put a DNS IP address in there like in Internet Explore.

Apparently Mozilla did an update and not it defaults to it's own printer dialog box. I hate it. There is a link to use the system print dialog box but it only works for that specific print job. I can't find a setting to force Firefox to always use the system printer dialog box. Anyone know how to fix this? It's enough to make me stop using the browser becasue thr Firefox dialog box sucks.

My system requires me to log in to the internet when I start up. Usually I am given a message and asked to click on a link, which brings up my login page. Since yesterday I have been receiving the following message: The page isn’t redirecting properly

"Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies." I have cleared my cookies and cache and restarted numerous times. This message keeps coming up. I am able to access my home page, but any attempt to click on bookmarked links results in this message, and occasionally it will refuse even that, telling me it's redirected me too many times. Apart from clearing my cookies cache, which doesn't help, what else can I do to fix this problem? Thanks

Hello, since some time Firefox does't download updates. On HELP/ABOUT there is the installed version and below Updates Deactivated by your system administrator ... . I don't have a system administratot, it's a netbook. Sometimes before FF would download updates for installation. Now now more. Updates are only available by dowloading and reinstallations. After reading some help articles, I tried to get rid of registry entries, no success. I tried to cleanly uninstall FF, clearing the registry and reinstalling. The problem remains. Mind you, this has been created by FF itself. Any ideas how to get rid of this nuisance? Many thanks for a reply.

The latest version has been loaded onto my PC. The list of bookmarks, in the drop down menu, has increased in the spacing between the lines. Now my bookmarks list goes off the bottom of the screen, whereas before my bookmarks were all visible. Is there a simple way of reducing the gap between the lines, the font size is OK.
