For unfortunate reasons too tedious and mundane to discuss here, I am stuck with Mac/OS 10.11.6. I am looking for a version of Firefox that will run under that version of Mac/OS. I did the basic research and was directed Firefox version 78. After that, I was directed to the Extended Support Release. When I downloaded and ran that, I was directed to the Apple App Store where no version of Firefox could be found. Where to next?

Can someone offer me a link to a version of Firefox that I can download and run on Mac/OS 10.11.6? Please.

I am running window 10 on my laptop and Firefox started opening today in a small window in the upper left of my screen. I have no problems with other browsers but Firefox is doing this repeatedly today. I will reboot and see if that helps.

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.

A few months ago Firefox decided to double space all the items in menus. Reading through the forums many people didn't like this because of the amount of space that the menus now take up. Fortunately there was a work around, by setting 'browser.proton.contextmenus.enabled to false they returned to normal

This morning Firefox my got upgraded and the double spacing problem is back again. However there appears to be a bug with the setting and the menus won't return to normal. I'm now stuck with stupidly large menus that won't fit on the screen and lots of painful scrolling.

Does anybody have an alternative workaround until this is fixed?

Hi

I was able to turn off the Proton UI stuff previously via the about:config "proton" options, but in FF 91 that just got pushed via updates, this no longer seems to work.

Does anyone know if there are new switches to update in about:config in FF91 to disable this stuff or have other suggestions please?

Many thanks.

I just refreshed firefox because it was constantly hanging. However, my library icon is now missing. I have the bookmark star in the address bar but I no longer have the Library icon in the ribbon. When I click on the menu bar Bookmarks is shown but Library is not. When I click on Bookmarks I see a list of saved sites, but that's not a convenient way to get to them. Does anyone know how to get the Library icon back?

Thank you

This issue is with me for some time now I guess 6 to 12 months, I have circumvented it by simply using other browsers that don't have the issue, it is only in Firefox.

I have noticed that it seems to be a reoccurring issue for many people reading through help topics.

At the moment I am using: Mozilla Ubuntu Firefox 91.0

 Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Ubuntu; Linux x86_64; rv:91.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/91.0

Starting Firefox in "Safe mode/Troubleshooting mode" through the "Application menu" -> "Help" -> "Troubleshoot Mode", doesn't fix the problem.

... "Did you check the date/time and time zone on your computer?" (As suggested in an older topic)

Automatic synchronization with an Internet time server, is set to "ON"
My "Time Zone" is set manually set to the correct "Time Zone"

Since the issue is only in Firefox and not in Chrome, Chromium or Opera, there is something that Firefox is doing that Cloudflare doesn't like or visa versa....

I have noticed in other posts that the blame is simply shifted to Cloudflare, but why do other browsers then not have this problem ?

Opening the no longer existing website (from another help topic here about the same issue), that is still known by Cloudflare, shows the problem if you got it too -> http://animedao.com/

See my uploaded screenshot to see it is only in Firefox.

I also tried h264ify as I read about the video codec youtube uses but that didn't fixed it and also tried a solution on the forum that said to disable H264 plugin and enable h264ify but that didn't worked as well

After FF 91 installed when I go to something like the Watch page on Facebook, there is no border around content to define it and as a result (?) on my videos the controls such as the Audio button is nearly invisible off to the side of the content. While I can see a symbol there is nothing to click on that is visible but clicking above the audio symbol on pure white will turn the audio for the video on. There is no slider visible. If I click on a video to make it larger there is not minimize button in the upper left like there used to be. This is entirely broken. I don't want to downgrade as it is my understanding I would have to create a new account and then try to resync my other devices. I will have to abandon FF if this isn't fixed or until I learn how to fix this. I tried turning strict privacy off to no avail and changing the them to no effect.

Recently I’ve been receiving a 522 timeout error in Firefox attempting to reach URL www.cocoontech.com. The 522 is returned from Cloudflare’s reverse proxy servers (see uploaded image). However, I can successfully reach that URL using Chrome and MS Edge browsers. Only Firefox receives the 522 error. I can access numerous other websites with Firefox, so it seems to be isolated to just www.cocoontech.com. I’ve looked at numerous settings in Firefox, but have not seen anything that seems relevant to this issue.

Any ideas where to look to resolve this issue?

After the update that changed the bookmarks menu spacing in the most unhelpful way, I have reduced this stupid double padding between the folders with a hack - an now with the current update to 91.0.2 - it is back on!!???

Whose idiotic idea it was without giving us the OPTION of single OR double padding??

Why do we have to look online for the hacks and workarounds to remove this most idiotic and controlling change??

Please bring the single padding back NOW or I will completely switch to Chrome or simply will stop updating firefox!

You will NOT control how many folders and bookmarks I can see in my top menu bookmarks - and this idiotic double padding has removed half of them from my menu!!!

Is there a way to return to the more slimmed-down tabs and menus design of before? Because the latest update has all my menus double-spaced, and they're so bloated now that it's really hard to find anything with half the information spread out to take double the space.

To fix this, I have tried other users' suggestions of disabling proton, which had worked previously but no longer seems to have any effect as of the latest update. I have also tried the "compact menus" workaround, but that doesn't affect the double-spacing within the drop-down menus themselves.
