June 7, 2021

Hi There,

Used to be there were three dots in the search bar, and when I clicked it I had the option of airdropping a website to my phone, which I found to be considerably convenient; especially if I want to text somebody a website or what have you, something I am browsing on my computer.

Is this no longer possible with the latest update?

Thanks

Why is Firefox determined to ruin our browser customizations? V 89 sucks!

I've used Firefox since 2001. Twenty years I've been able to customize it like I want.

A few months ago I switched from ESR to Release channel because the release version could still be tweaked to the way I like it. Huge mistake!

Version 89 totally destroyed everything I like about Firefox! I use Firefox on a large monitor from my easy-chair. I NEED compact layout. Everything is zoomed anyway. I hate the new tabs! I ESPECIALLY hate the double-spaced bookmarks! I want to continue to use a custom CSS in "chrome" folder.

I switched back to the ESR channel (FF78) and had to re-tweak my about:config settings, reinstall and tweak add-ons and load hundreds of bookmarks to get the favicons back. Unique favicons make it much easier to differentiate between sites. Generic icons suck. Major hassle!

I will stick with Firefox ESR until it too becomes unusable for me. At that point, sadly, my decades long use of Firefox will come to an end.

I include two screen grabs that illustrate how I like my set-up. Note how easy it is to tell one tab from another.

Why "fix" what ain't broke?

I deplore the way the browser looks now and want the old look back... I have vision problems and am totally ignorant about computers. I finally found FF and the last version was PERFECT. I could clearly see it, knew how to use it, and LOVED it and I WANT IT BACK. SIMPLY... Because I am so ignorant, the instructions I have seen so far might have been written in a foreign language. Is there a SIMPLE way to restore the OLD LOOK and feel. Keeping all the new security and other stuff is fine...although I was fine with the way it was, but I will have to find another browser if someone cannot help me fix the image back to the way it was. Please, why do they upgrade this stuff and not leave a way to keep the old look for those of us who don't want to change? If anyone can help me...I would really appreciate it. Thank you.

Yesterday, Firefox updated and moved my tabs bar up to the top of the window, and got rid of the button that lets me move them to the bottom. They used to be below the bookmarks toolbar which is where I like them.

Last time I could right-click the Tabs bar and there was a button called 'Tabs on top' which I could disable, and the tabs moved back to the bottom. But they got rid of that and I can't find where it's gone.

I wonder if there is anyone who has figured out a way to got back to a previous easier to use Firefox than this new version 89. It is so unclear where one thing starts and ends. I can't tell where my open tabs are either. It's a terrible upgrade. Don't the people working on these things have other more important features to work on? Is there anyone who can provide help and guidance?

I am using a MacBook Air 10.12.6

Thanks

In Firefox 88 the pocket button was inside the address bar. Please check image attached.

Then when we entered on a website that already was in our pocket list, the icon became red and with a simples click, we could remove it from our pocket list, simple and easy!

Now with the FF 89 changes, everything is worst, as you can see on the image, the button is located outside and we do not have that option anymore. The only way is entering the pocket website, searching and removing it.

Please, tell me there is a way to return back the pocket button inside the address bar ? Thanks in advance.

Firefox appears to have just updated. Now my bookmarks list is so long I have to scroll down to see everything. It looks like everything has been spaced out further, which I hate. It takes up was too much space. They were probably going for a more elegant, less cluttered look, but it just ended up making things more aggravating for me. There should be a way to adjust or turn off the spacing feature. Any suggestions?

With the new version 89 the row height for bookmarks is way too big and now I am scrolling all over the place. I had them all perfectly spaced to show all in my full screen without scrolling. Is there an adjustment where I can go back to the previous narrower height?

This latest update from Firefox is awful in my opinion. The tabs are ugly and blocky and too big and everything is spaced weirdly. The right-click menu is far bigger than it needs to be. This is all new as of the latest update. It appears Mozilla did one of those "changing something for the sake of changing it" updates which I detest.

Is there any way to revert to the previous update, when everything was normal? I tried searching through settings but couldn't find anything. Nor could I find an add-on to fix it. This is quite frustrating as I liked the compactness of Firefox but they broke all of that and made it ugly in the process.

Thank you for any help!

I have very recently upgraded to Version 89.0 (Windows 10) and I can't help but wonder why some key characteristics have been changed for the worse. The display format for the Bookmarks list is now spaced so large that my Bookmarks no longer fit on a single screen, and I can find no adjustment available to users. Also, the new tab screen no longer shows the image of the page, making the display less useful. What was broken in these features that Mozilla found a need to "fix" them? Is there anything a user can do to "undo" these changes?
