This is a thank you follow-up to my yesterdays' post starting with; "firefox version 89 is insanely slow with no explanation had to try reset...." I can't find my msg from yesterday started with this, but wanted to thank you all for fixing Everything - Overnight! I am So glad I waited to, "system restore," until today bec it(MSs' OS) gave warning it might not restore All of the elements correctly. Thank you for your hard work and just appreciating how essential the browsers' Working is to our lives. It is. Thank you, thank you, thank you!  :) (I'm now thinking I should maybe put my updates on "notify me first /let me download when ready"...but I'm not really sure if that would accomplish anything because I'd still have to download them to see if there were problem/s that effected My devise in particular. Community posts don't tell you that - or what to do. Pop-up status msgs would be appreciated.. if you'd have time...even if not all knowing...just to know some are aware of X issue...working on it...estimated back up time... whether we could/should do a "system restore" & wait until further notice to DL again. But I guess our issues are what you need to see to fix them...But I digress. Thank you again for working hard to store functionality. I needed something right to happen in my life - someone to be an expert at what they do. Thanks for your humanity.

The color scheme and the look of the browser are awful, and it's hard to see the plus sign to open a new tab. I would like to switch back to the previous color and style scheme (rectangular tabs and all). How can I do this?

     SUB   : How do I move address bar to above tabs?
     To    : https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/new/desktop/form
     I have recently, past few days, been upgraded to
  Firefox Browser ver 89.0.
     It made changes I am not pleased with.
     It saved essentially none of my preferences, bookmarks,
  extensions, add-ons and etc.
     Pretty much had to start from scratch, reloading extensions,
  re-configuring extensions, has taken me hours.
     For some reason year upon year Firefox always messes with the
  address bar - tabs positions.
     I get it the way I like, then * BOOM * it gets reset.
     During this past "RESET", my preferences are not saved, they
  get blown away, year after year.
     I have to spend many, many hours attempting to get positions
  back to the way I want.
     Here is current (not-pleased-with) appearance :
     ============================================
  File  Edit  View  History  Bookmarks  Tools  Help
  Tab   Tab   Tab   Tab   Tab   Tab
  Address bar, where the web page url is displayed.



     Here is what I want. What keeps getting blown away :
     ==================================================
  File  Edit  View  History  Bookmarks  Tools  Help
  Address bar, where the web page url is displayed.
  Tab   Tab   Tab   Tab   Tab   Tab


     Notice the Address bar is above the Tabs.



     Now, in ver 89, after many hours of searching, it seems
  instead of some simple switch I can select or de-select via
  a check-box, I now need to become a programmer to make this
  change.
     I am not in any fashion or manner a programmer, nor do I want
  to become one.
     Cutting, pasting, editing, proofing code, alas, is not in
  my positronic pathway(s), it simply does not stick, error in
  processing and so on.
     Perhaps I have overlooked something in my searching to
  correct this positioning problem?
     Where is the check-box I can select or de-select to position
  the Address bar to my liking?
     Please and thank you.

You SLAMMED me with a WHOLLY-unwanted format / appearance change and v.89 - FORCING a switch back to v.88 but, ALSO forced BY you to 'create new profile' - SICK of such STUPIDITY and ABUSIVE, thought-DEVOID practices; much, MUCH harder to distinguish with my eyesight with NO apparent means of ALTERING it and, I am PISSED - an ENORMOUS amount of work to TRY and remember WHICH links were open (over 100 tabs) to say NOTHING of having to RE-SIGN back IN to certain webpages when required - if I'm even ABLE.....

Please respond ASAP.

Firefox is not entering text in text boxes when I type stuff in them. Also, text sometimes ends up in the address bar when it shouldn't.

I'm having a very strange problem that's only occurring with Firefox and not any other browser. Since this new update went through, whenever I go to Google's web page, I will type a search on the text box on Google's web page. The text doesn't appear in that text box. But instead, is somehow being captured by Firefox's address bar. Not only that, ever since the update, whenever I type a response in a text box on my Facebook page, Youtube, or anywhere with a text box to reply or make comments, whatever I typed doesn't even show up. I see it when I type it in the proper text box. But after I click "Submit" or "Enter" on the sites, no text is submitted and my comment disappears. This happens on all the sites with text boxes, and it ONLY happens with Firefox, and has only been happening since the update. It's getting frustrating typing long answers to questions that require long explanations of things, only to have them not get submitted to the site. It's like Firefox is blocking me from commenting or making comments. I'm not having the same problem with my phone browser. It's only a problem on my PC one.

hi, the latest update changed the homepage a lot. The most bothersome thing i have noticed is that when i type anything into the search area it immediately moves from the search bar in the middle of the page to the address bar at the top of the page where i usually just get URL's. It doesnt serve any purpose i can think of and i have never used the address bar to do normal searches before. Is there any way to change my homepage back to the way it was? Or at least stop the search and address bars from being linked?

I want the URL bar to do just the URL...

Not impressed at all with semi-transparent tabs and tweaked interface colors.

Hello -

As I stated in the subject line, "Cannot Stop Updated (Current) Version of Firefox From Diverting Search Engine Search to URL Pane" I have been doting over this for an hour. I have set the respective about:config settings to the recommended setting. (I forget off the top of my head what the string was at the moment) But I did as directed. Refreshed the about:config. Logged off the Firefox browser. Cleared all the caches manually. (i.e., even though I have Firefox to clear everything when I close the browser) Restarted the browser. Problem persists. I DON'T like searching out of the URL pane! I like it like it has ALWAYS been prior: Using the search engine (I currently am using Google) search pane.

I have added NO browser extensions to cause this either by the way.
