How Can I Remove the "From This Website" Line From the Password Dropdown

Hey,

When entering a password on some website, I have a dropdown list of all saved passwords for this website and every saved password has the "from this website" line under it. This makes the dropdown list extremely long (in terms of its height).

I would love to get rid of the sign "from this website", so that I see a more compact list of saved passwords without those useless lines "from this website".

I have already turned off the "signon.includeOtherSubdomainsInLookup" feature, all that is left to make the dropdown list of passwords look normal (just like it used to be before all the new pointless changes).

I hope more experienced firefox users can help me make my browser more user-friendly to me.

Today I updated my Firefox Developer Edition to version 89.0b2 and now I just can not look at this browser anymore, "Inspired new tab design" is taking too much space and now became largest and at the same time least information-dense panel in my entire desktop! I searched around the web for a bit in hopes that I will find a theme or an add-on that will revert this particular change but no luck. I really want to revert to old UI look (at least tabs bar), there should be default theme or option to get back to old style. After some investigation I found userChrome.css but don't really want to install it (maybe this is actually the way of doing this kind of styling). Please help me revert UI design to old one.

Following the deprecation of the FTP protocol in Firefox I have, as a workaround, set Excel to open all ftp links in Firefox for me. However, ideally, I would like a custom PowerShell script to handle all ftp links for me in Firefox. But to do so you would have to pass arguments to an application (in this case PowerShell) in handlers.json file. I guess that is not possible, or am I wrong here?

I found when pressing Alt+Enter in the address bar, the link will open in a new tab, which is nice. But if I press Alt+click a link in the page, the link does not open in a new tab (while Shift+click can open in a new window as expected). I'm not sure if it's a problem, but I hope Firefox can have this feature so that opening a link in a new tab can be more convenient.

Besides, in some browsers, drag a link to a nearby place will open in a new tab. However, in Firefox, this manner does not work, unless I drag a link to the tabs bar.

Recently, I think it was yesterday when I updated FireFox developer to 88.0b2 (64bit) on my OS Windows 10 Pro (x64) 22H2 19042.870.

Firstly I noticed "take screenshot" option dissapeared from "3 dots" on the URL bar. Secondly, the "paste" (right click or CTRL + V) stopped working.

I cannot paste text neither from my Notepad or some Text Editor as usuall to some input field or textarea on some Website.

I can copy text from some input field of an Website, but cannot paste the text inside it from a Windows Explorer or whatever.

What is that wrong with FireFox stable/unstable versions?

I've had problems on "normal" FireFox, now I got them either on "developer". I really like this browser, but more and more it seems I would need to switch to some other just because.

Hello,

this knowledge base article (Remove the Other Bookmarks folder from the Bookmarks Toolbar) claims that you can display the Other Bookmarks folder on the toolbar since Firefox 85 but it seems to be a lie.

In the screenshots down below, you can see my current settings. The Other Bookmarks folder is missing although my settings are correct.

How can I display the Other Bookmarks folder on the toolbar in Firefox? Thanks for your help!
