I hate the new tabs look in FF89-- they aren't even tabs any more because the borders have been removed. They now look confusingly similar to bookmarks on the bookmakrs toolbar. Please restore the old tabs appearance! And for goodness' sake give us the opition of having the tabs at the bottom of all the bars, as they used to be.

Firefox has upgraded to 89.0 version and following last Microsoft trend, I've got bigger menu items and smaller menu fonts making it mor difficult to read and wasting screen space. I mean, where before were 30 items in marker's menu, now only fits about half of them.

It is really annoying getting texts more difficult to read in exchange to coloured blank space, not to mention if you have vision issues.

I've been trying made some kind of customization around this but it has been a loss of time. Is there some adjustement to fix this that I have not seen?

Thanks.

OS: Windows 7 Firefox Version: Current, no extensions or add-ons active

This problem started out of the blue a month or two ago. When I type in the search box or any input field on a web page, more often than not, the browser will go into "Not Responding" mode and I have to exit and restart. At the same time this started, the same problem also started happening when a pop-up window would appear (perhaps only those with input fields?). The problem with input fields seems to happen most often when they are trying to auto-complete what I am typing, but turning this off in the search box did not end the problem there, just made it happen a little less often.

I tried doing a 'refresh' on Firefox, that had no effect.

If I run Firefox in troubleshooting mode, the problem does not occur.

I do not think this is a virus problem; I have Kaspersky running, and I haven't seen any other telltale signs.

Hello Firefox people, I noticed that before the last upgrade to the browser, my Firefox Color was working fine. Then it stopped altogether. Now it will load up, but there are no colors in the area where there was before the upgrade. I am on Windows 7. Is there a better version to use with the extension? An older one maybe that isn't too terribly old, or is that not a good idea? I made some themes I want to send out--about 15 of them! Is there an other way to give away my art forFirefox Color--posting it somewhere, or another" loading zone"? Thank you for your time and help. It is getting frustrating that it keeps refusing to load up completely. I love playing with the colors. Have a good day. Sincerely, VJ Smith

Hi Everyone!

I have a problem with my FF Account. On last week i tried to sing in to my firefox account on my laptop, but i got an "e-mail was returned and we’ve locked your account to protect your Firefox data." message, and is still locked. I'm sure my e-mail account is working, maybe the problem is, my messages is automatically forwarded to an another e-mail address, but i haven't had any problem when i logged in on my personal computer. Someone can unlock my account, or what should i do?

PS. Sorry about my english, i'm not sure is everything correct what i wrote, but i hope everyone can understand whats my problem.

Regards Mario

Since the last update, my browser home page shortcuts have become a single big letter instead of the old icon style picture. This new update has made it too confusing to find which shortcut I need. I cant even enlarge the font size under this new stupid shortcut icon. I will happily go back to my old browser if this crap cant be changed. Why do we have to have what they want us to have instead of what we want in a browser? I really wish all companies would stop forcing their own ideas on us, most of it is pathetic childest rubbish.

Currently on v88.0.1 on Windows 7 desktop, Windows 10 Laptop and Mac OSX Sierra. Looked at a review with screenshots of v89 and noticed a few issues. Where did the 'Customize Toolbar..." option go? It also appears the the 'Compact View' for tabs is being moved/phased out? that would not be ideal on a small screen. Being able to customize my view is one of the main selling points for Firefox. On Windows 10 HP laptop we still put up with occasional audio getting killed in Firefox (Edge never does this) and having to play a wave file in Groove Music to get the sounds back.

I'm running Firefox with Win7x86 on a Biostar desktop I5 motherboard. All was fine until the latest Firefox update 88. or 89. when the bookmarks (star with a pan underneath) drop down list became doublespaced. I would like to get back to single spacing -- too much vertical slider activity.

HELP.

Hope you can fix this asap.

I'm going to have to immediately abandon firefox browser to continue working, as this is unworkable for me.

again - the issue is: right click menu - some options are GONE (example - open in new tab or window)

Seems to happen (so far) only in google results search

Noticed this after update to Firefox 89.0 --- am Using windows-7 professional /64

I TRIED to get a screen shot of this (thanks for messing THAT up - as right clicj for THAT doesn't now work here EITHER). but when I do an ALT + PRNT SCRN screen shot, the right vlivk menu box goes blank / white - so I cannot even show you the issue.


Could this be some kind of a conflict / issue with: adblockers? extensions? add-ons? Google itself?

thanks

New windows sometimes have previous URL's in them even though I've set them to open Blank in Settings. Once these open sometimes I cannot type a new URL. Nothing happens after using Alt_D which usually highlights the Address Bar for entry of a new URL. I can't even highlight it by clicking with my mouse. Its like its locked into the previous address. The last one was a bank. And I can't even open a new tab from this window. Control_T opens a new tab in the original window defeating the whole purpose of segregating your work in different windows so you can group numerous tabs.

Sometimes there's a delay in a website being recognized and log in info filled in, sometimes its never recognized like just now with accounts.firefox.com yet its in my Passwords. URL was checked and was identical in both. You'd think Firefox would recognize firefox.com!

Sometimes it fills in the password after I have entered the username. This is for sites like Firefox.com that don't have the username and password on one page but sometimes its happened when both are on the same page. But shouldn't it recognize the username or does it have to have both on the page? Is there any way of making these types of pages work properly? This is not high security. As if I could care less what people read or know what I'm posting in a forum like this on the operation of a browser.
