With the new update, the new tabs take too much space for my liking, so i tried to enable compact mode via `about:config` by setting `browser.compactmode.show` to true.

For me, that setting does not do anything as you can see in the screenshot that shows 2 different user profiles as comparison. Is this setting already broken 2 weeks after the redesign or does it still work for others?

Hello i just made the update from version 88 to version 89 and i noticed, that the design of the Tabs was changed. Also the coulor of the title bar does not longer match my windows theme. I looked trough the new design and i must admit that i does not like that minimalism style at all. Is there any way to get atleast the colour of my title bar back to my normal Windows setting?

So if I try to open a .tg link to a Telegram group I want to join I get a message box asking me what application I want to open the link with. I want to change it from the current one and select Telegram as an app that I've installed from the Microsoft Store, but that doesn't appear on the list when you click browse because it's not a normally installed program in Windows. Is there a way to get access to apps installed through Microsoft Store in order to set them as default apps to open certain links/file extensions through Firefox?

Before the new design there was a button in the URL field allowing to instantly copy the URL of the open page. Now it is missing and I could not find it in the customization section.

Its approximate position and appearance are shown on the screenshot.

If the button was intentionally removed, my question becomes a feature request. Thank you in advance!

With the upgrade to FF 89, the font used to display text on the browser itself (not the webpages it displays) has changed to be a thinner and possibly smaller font. My eyes do not like this!

I need to be able to either make it bold, or make it larger, or possibly both. I have tried changing the font in the settings page, but that seems to only apply to webpages, which is not what i need.

I'm running win 10 on a Toshiba Satellite laptop and Firefox v.89.

Thank you for any suggestions.

Hello,

My questions concerns the "Remove Folder" selection.

I right-clicked a folder on the bookmarks drop-down menu, and accidentally selected remove folder. Does this mean that the folder has been deleted or does it mean that it has been collapsed and the constituent book marks have been moved elsewhere (other bookmarks, bookmark toolbar, etc).

If the folder has in fact been deleted, is there any way of retrieving it?

Thank you for your help.

Recently, I've been unable to view paid for video, for example on Netflix. I get the following error message:

The WidevineCdm Plugin has crashed. FATAL Clpp-Error [Category 6 - Code 6002]: {"browserError":""}

I'm using a macOS 10.95 and, says Firefox,:

"Note: The current version of Google Widevine is no longer compatible with older macOS versions such as OS X 10.9 and 10.10. Only macOS versions 10.11 and above are supported."

So my question, since it seems my mac is no longer compatible with Widevine, is whether there a way for me to watch video on Firefox? Perhaps with another plugin? Or no plugin? Perhaps this is an issue to take up with Widevine?

Thanks in advance.

When I went to version 89.0 today, the default theme was changed so that the title bar turned white when I had it set to light blue and if I had two or more firefox windos up the non active ones were white as well when they used to be gray. While I want a light theme, the present light theme is so white that it hurts my eyes. You had a decent default before, but now it is terrible. Change it back! Look at the terrible image below that shows an active and a non active window.

Hi,

I am currently running FF 89 (64bit). I noticed just after that update the bookmarks had changed. I have a lot of folders and had a Chrome.sss file to change the empty outline to the more traditional yellow icon. I know there were other things in that sss file that I had added to adjust the basic FF displays. However, I have searched my computer and cannot find the Chrome.sss file.

Is there any way to find this file instead of having to regenerate it and relearn the changes I had made?

Why does FF not leave the Chrome folder and sss file instead of seemingly delete them?

I also do not like the black background and white text that pops up when I right click a bookmark. That combination is very hard on my eyes. Is there an easy way to get black type on a white background or maybe a light grey background?

Thanks in advance for your help!

Now, last week, FF upgraded and here I am again. Please help if you can. Thank you.

Newer release of Firefox auto-fill username and password when they should not. I have a web application that has a list of people. Optionally (form is even hidden requiring a click to see) a person can be a user (rare). My username and password are auto filled in ALWAYS now for the person (even when the form is not showing). Can I just change the field names (username, password) in the jsp and have Firefox NOT fill mine in automagically? Or if not, how do I tell the browser that these are normal fields - leave them alone PLEASE (do not auto-fill)?
