The new Firefox is very disappointing and a big let down. I have been a dedicated Firefox user but these recent updates have made Firefox extremely slow and some of the useful functionalities are no longer there... Furthermore, with the previous versions, I would create my own short cuts by pinning them somewhere on the browser by either dragging the website address, or their logo and then by right-clicking the pinned tab, I would just type in a brief name to know what site it belonged to. Now, I can do it, but only to well-known sites such as Amazon, Facebook, Ebay and so on. I cannot do it with my own-interest websites. My own-preferred websites do occupy a space above the browser, but I cannot add a name to them. The little transparent square is just empty and I am unable to give it a name.

And, what is worse, when I open the new Firefox, all those pinned sites are being opened in the background and all the same time, and thus it is taking ages for me to get to my Home page. So far, with every update, I have lost certain functionalities which I had before.

I am sad to say, I might be tempted to start using Microsoft Edge on which I am still able to use these functionalities and at three times the speed compared to the new Firefox.

You have also done something lethal when uninstalling and reinstalling a Firefox browser. I have LOST all my bookmarks. In the past, the bookmarks would sit somewhere on the computer to be re-inserted with the new installation of Firefox. This is lethal and I am furious about it. I know, I know, I can export and re-import my Bookmarks, but it is not the same, I tell you.

You've done something with these updates which are not fit for purpose, I'm sorry to say.

I would like to at least be able to return to my own pinned short cuts at the top of the browser to make me use Firefox rather than going to the Bookmarks for my frequently sites.

On my Gmail account I used to have few Hangouts calls and video calls. One day the browser asked me something and I guess I turned something off regarding the mic + video...

I can't find a way to get back calls with mic/voice/video. How can I fix it?

Pocket install asks to confirm non-existant email address and no way to change

I upgraded to V90.0.2 and tried to install Pocket. The popup gave me an old email address that does not exist, so I changed it to my current email address, logged in, but then pocket said it needed to use my email address, but the old email address was in the box and there was no way to change my old email address.

I came here and logged in using my old email address, but I had updated the account so it had my new email address. I logged out and logged in with my new email address, and my settings were the same, with my new email address and my new alternate email address.

No where was my old email address listed for me to change or delete. I see no way to tell FF that email no longer exists. Confusing, I know.

Previously inspecting the page info (Ctrl + I) and going to the media tab, I could select an image and download it in its original file size. This has changed to where the image is now downsized, even when opening the direct link in a new tab. The image comes out squished and distorted.

Is there a fix for this? I've tried clearing all cookies & cache which has worked in the past but not anymore.
