Hello!

I used to be able to open a file (with a program) without it being saved. Ever since 98.0, the "open" option saves the file regardless. I even had to find a work around to get the "What should Firefox do with this file?" prompt.

Is this no longer possible?

Thanks.

I know I am not the first person to complain about this. The spacing/padding between menu items, in particular the Bookmark menu is just ridiculously large. It got even bigger in 92.0!

I rely on Bookmarks heavily and use hundreds. I guess this was done for touch screens? The main interface is still currently the mouse for computers.

I see the only current fix is a using a stylesheet and it seems a bit involved. I have to give it a try. I am pleading with the designers, please give us the option to use compact padding once again. I am not sure why this is being forced on us. I really like Firefox, please don't make me look for another option. Thanks!

Wide Bookmark Spacing is Horrible!

When they updated to 89, large spaces were created in between the bookmarked web sites when the window unfolds. So the bookmarks at the bottom don't fit in the window, and to get to the ones I can't see, I have to click the arrow at the bottom. But making it worse, is that if I do go to the bottom, the next time I open the bookmark tab, the list will open at the bottom (it doesn't revert to the top). So I'd have to scroll up to get to the ones at the top.

I list my bookmarks in the order they're in so I can get to the ones I go to most often as fast as possible. So they're at the top - I don't have to scroll far to get to them. I also use the "Other Bookmarks" tab since that's at the top. But sometimes that's hidden and I have to scroll up to get to access that as well.

Also, this update changed the size of the command windows - the copy/paste window, the "open in new tab" window, and the window to get the correct spelling of the word. They're so big, they run from the top of the screen to bottom, instead of a small square. So you'll have to scroll way up to get to the command or word you want.

I can't stand this.

There was a simple work-around. Changing the proton preferences to false. But they removed them with 90. I posted a message on these boards a few weeks ago asking for them not to be removed. Of course it didn't do any good.

There supposedly is a "fix" to this, but it has to do with CSS - whatever the heck that is and I'm not even going to attempt to figure it out. Fixing this should NOT be complicated at all (like the proton preferences). And besides, even that CSS thing won't bring everything back to what is was. So why bother?

More scrolling, bigger command windows, etc., are not that big of a deal, but that's not the point. Why can't they leave well enough alone? What part of "If it ain't broke, don't fix it," do they not understand? If I wanted a tedious way to access my bookmarks, I'd use Chrome!

I know it won't happen, but how can we get them to reset the bookmarks and command windows back to the way they were? Is that asking too much? Ask a silly question...

If their objective is to lose Firefox users, congratulations. It just might work.

The tabs, address bar, and bookmarks bar takes up too much of the screen, almost 2", while another browser I use is 1 3/8" wide. Would like to know if I can shorten that up. No need to take up all of that space.

Systems: MacMini (2018) running Mojave 10.14.6 Windows 10 Pro v20H2, build 19042.1165, experience pack 120.2212.3530.0

Ever since FF v89 when I go into FF Settings in either system none of the options I have selected display an 'X' in that option's checkbox. In previous versions when I clicked in an option's checkbox an 'X' would appear and disappear when clicked again.

No more.

I've tried changing the theme to Dark, Light, System . . . no change to this issue in either my Mac or pc: I cannot see an 'X' in any option's checkbox in FF Settings.

Please see attached screenshots. They are with "Dark" theme, but its the same no matter what theme I choose.

How to get my Settings choices to show that I have checked off this or that option?

Solution??

-((

Thanks!
