I find it annoying that I have the Find tool on, then open another page in a tab and it's off, or navigate away from a page and have the Find box go away. That box isn't very big and in the way, and it would much better to keep that box open ALL THE TIME. Having to press CTRL+F evertime I need it, is painful. Okay, so I'm lazy! But I don't think it would impair the user's ability to view a page. That row it sits in is as high as only one line of text!

How about implementing this, Mozilla? I mean, your browser is the browser of choice. It's superb at viewing images and retrieving image information. It plays Youtubes and other videos flawlessly. It's as fast as Google's Chrome at performing a search across the net. Firefox wrocks! It would only wrock a little more if one could enable this feature and leave it on all the time. I do a lot of research, and finding a phrase on a page at Wikipedia or elsewhere is performed often. So let's allow new tabs to have the tool on if it is already on, and let's leave it on until we purposely turn it off.

Please?

Hi, I need to use alt+scroll to zoom in and out on a website I use regularly. However, often, I will use alt+scroll to zoom out and end up leaving the session as firefox backs out to the previous page. This means that I have to spend a long time logging back in and loading my page.

I have tried shortkeys, but it doesn't seem to support modifying shortcuts using the scroll wheel.

How can I disable this shortcut?

Thank you.

I recently updated FireFox to it's new version and added add-ons. Usually, when an add-on gets added, it shows immediately on the top left on the toolbar. (in videos and articles). However it doesn't display on mine. I did some research and found another method: customize toolbar -> drag the add-on to the toolbar. That didn't work either because no add-ons displays when i enter customize toolbar. Instead, there's an add-ons icon to drag. Dragging it on the toolbar and clicking on it doesn't do anything. I also read that if the toolbar is full there would be a + icon and when i click on it add-ons shows up. (my toolbar is actually empty and i don't have a + icon). So yeah, i'm left with no solutions. Appreciate some help and suggestions.

For years I've had multiple open tabs and pinned tabs while browsing, then when I quit and restarted FF all of the tabs reopened when I restarted.

I've recently upgraded to a newer MacBook Pro and now FF is not reopening tabs upon restart. I also didn't need to login to FF each time I started it on my old computer, but FF on the new computer makes me login every time I restart. I'm using version 88.0.1 on the new computer and 88.0 on the previous computer. I have followed the instructions from the article below, and I've even uninstalled and reinstalled FF, but nothing has worked:

[Restore Previous Session]

I'm terribly frustrated and I would be ever so appreciative if anyone can help me figure this out! Thank you!

Hello everybody!

I just updated my firefox to the newest version - and I absolutely hate the new design. Is there any way to "keep" the newest version, but have the older design?

I know that installing the version before the design got updated would be a possibility, but for various reasons I would like to avoid doing that - at least if there is any other option. If not, I'll just have to do that I guess.

Help would be very much appreciated!

Greetings

The new update released hours ago has introduced problems that Google Chrome had, which is the very first reason in the first place that I left Chrome to get Firefox.

The menus have been made larger, with more clutter. This is especially apparent in every instance of bookmarks. The text and icons and space between the bookmarks have all been increased in size, making it more annoying and less clean to use, as well as looking unpleasant. No settings will allow me to zoom out on the menus or tabs or bookmarks. The tabs and the prompts have also been redesigned along with menus and it looks awful. I left Chrome to avoid the style and it has unfortunately followed me to Firefox.

Everything about this update has made the browser worse and more akin to Chrome, which I heavily dislike. I understand this is nitpicking and doesn't matter much. I still would like the old version back. Is there a way I can download the old version of Firefox anywhere? Heavy thanks to whoever reads and responds.

I wanted to ask if anyone could help me restoring firefox's previous version/removing this update, or at least blocking the aesthetic changes forced by the update. Thanks for any and all help.

I just downloaded and installed the latest update for Firefox and I hate it. The browser top bar is white and none of the tabs is readily readable. I looked to find a way to darken the background, but nothing changes that white bar. Please like Windows allow a "classic" setting that retains the older look.

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?

I hate new firefox 89 looks. I can tolerate buttons. I can even tolerate ugly frameless tabs. But I will not tolerate bookmarks that are twice as fat as before. This is waste of space. Before I was able to see all my bookmarks from bookmark menu on screen. Now they are superfat and I have to scroll constantly in every sub-folder. Am I supposed to buy 4k screen now just because devs decided to make everything big like in touch-screen computers, even for mouse and keyboard users? Why is there no compact view anymore, only normal and superfat touch mode?

Is there any easy way, preference or something to restore old thin look? I googled topic and found some info about css styles but it includes too much of interfering with browser for me to do it. I want easy and permanent solution.

This: https://blog.mozilla.org/addons/2021/04/19/changes-to-themeable-areas-of-firefox-in-version-89/

Says that I can’t have lines separating my unused tabs anymore. This is SO annoying. Can anyone help me get borders between my unused tabs?

Also, WHY ARE YOU DOING THIS Mozilla? Now I have to stop EVERYTHING that I am doing and research how I can make your browser work the way I want it to. Why do you always assume that you know what is best for me?

I tried the "Stylish" add-in but when I try to install a specific style from their site - nothing happens.

The Firefox Universe is extremely vast, and trying to Google “lines between my unused tabs” is getting me nowhere. I don’t know how to develop themes. I don’t code. I just want the browser to look like it did last week. Is it really so much to ask?

Every. Single. Time. I update Firefox - I regret it!!!

Hi,

Am I the only one plagued with an issue about the option "View" > "Toolbars" > "Bookmarks Toolbar" > "Only Show on new Tab" ?

It finally used to work until version 88

(prior to that I had to use custom css tricks)

With 89, it does not work anymore
