Hello! I'm running FF v91.4.1 on a MAC using macOS v10.12.6

I recently upgraded from FF v78.15.0

The homepage shortcut and frequent visit icons positions are about the same size as they were in my previous FF version, but the website supplied icons are about 25% of their previous size, making it difficult to identify them quickly.

How can I adjust the icon size so that they fill the layout tile positions as they were previous to the FF version update?

Please see attached image.

Thank you in advance for any advice and suggestions you might be able to provide. Regards, RR

Hi. I'm having some issues to render CSS effects and videos after last update (version 91.4.1esr). Before that update everything was pretty smooth, but since the update the browser is getting very slow to render "everything that moves" on the screen. The movements are poor on CSS or videos, its like it was exceeding in any video/memory resources, get very slow and nothing smooth.

My system: - Linux Debian 11 (fully updated) 64bits; - Processor: Xeon 2670-v3; - Ram: 32GB; - Graphics: Quadro 2000; - Graphics Driver: official Nvidia 390.144 x86 with 32bits support downloaded by Nvidia's site.

Any hints on how can I solve this?

When video/audio starts playing on a browser, the tab title displays 'playing' text. This additional line resizes the window height and causes the tab content to resize too. For example youtube starts resizing video window height and width - and this is very annoying. How do I remove 'playing' text from tab FOREVER?

I lost all the bookmarks suddenly where i was using this browser for office work, there was no action taken from my end like deletion or any upgrade, however suddenly when i start machine today, i found all bookmarks lost. To restore backup I entered to Profile --> bookmark backup this file is extension JSONLZ4 which is not visible during restore bookmark.

This is quite important to recover these suddenly lost all bookmarks, so is there any way or support available?

Unfortunately this is first time i am facing such kind of issue, So kindly also let me know if we should trust mozilla firefox as default browser and to save bookmarks?

Thanks & Regards

Hello, I have a desktop and a laptop. I want to sync my firefox data (tabs, history, etc) between them. Now the problem.

Only one device shows up under my account's "Connected Services". Each time I sync or change the profile name on the dekstop or on the laptop they overwrite each other.
i.e. I will have under "Connected Services" a single client with name "desktop", then i go to my laptop and enable sync with name "laptop" and now on my account there is only client "laptop". if I go to my desktop and change the name of the desktop sync client to "desktop2" and update, then i will only have "desktop2" under "Connected Services". How can i connect both my laptop and desktop to my account to sync data between them????

I suspect it could have something to do with me cloning my firefox installation from the laptop to teh desktop and they having the same "ID"? if that makes sense?. ( I cloned the entire C: drive of the laptop to a new drive and use that as a C: drive for the desktop)

Hi. I have Firefox ESR, which recently updated to version 91. I used an about:config command to get Print Preview back. (Namely, change print.tab_modal.enabled pref value from true to false.)

The problem is that -- unlike my old Print Preview -- its current behavior is to always fit a whole page to the screen at one time, which makes the font smaller and harder to read. I used to get, say half to two-thirds of the first page on the screen when scaling is left at the default of 100%. Sure that required more scrolling, but it was much easier on my eyes.

Is there a way to get back the old Print Preview behavior where Firefox was NOT shrinking to fit only full pages on each screen?

Hello,

I'm using Firefox 91.4.1esr (64-bit) from Debian repositories on Bullseye. Every time I open Firefox, a window with a greeting message appears ("Say hello to a new Firefox"), and it doesn't matter if, as asked by that window, I choose a theme or not. Is this issue related to my settings? Is this a Debian issue? Is it possible to stop that window from reappearing?

Thanks in advance. And many thanks for making Firefox (I've been using it for so many years I can't recall when I tried it for the first time).

Firefox have closed to all Feeback. I just wanted to tell them the reasons that after being loyal to Mozilla I think since 1995 I finally switched to Goggle Chrome next year. There newest version was just awful. Incredibly slow, glitchy one of the worst things and worst decisions was to get rid of Remind Fox and add on that I found unbelivably helpful and they just decided to discontinue it and there is nothing else like it other adds on just don't do the same stuff my son loved it too. And lastly there are addons to help hearing impaired users on Chrome and Firefox doesn't even have a single one. It is also just insanely slow to load now. The new version was a tremendous downgrade.

In other 'apps' on windows 10 the tooltip is above the pointer or below it. In Firefox it is directly under the mouse. So usually any tooltip popup in firefox is unreadable, mostly. One can infer the content sometimes.

How do i change that? Or what is the problem?

I'll try and include a screenshot. Hmm, the screenshot didn't include the mouse. I think i can do a video with OBS and then a screenshot of that.

Interesting, somehow in the screenshot from the obs video it shows 2 mouse pointers. One is very small and the tooltip is just below that, but the other is larger (the one I see) and it covers the tooltip. I'm using the standard windows mouse settings for larger mouse pointers. I just tried using the 'old' mouse settings to select a larger mouse and it behaves the same way. If I select size: 1 in the new size settings, and the old settings i have 'windows system' mouse, then the tooltip is under the pointer but the size is too small for the pointer. I then changed to another mouse setting in the old selector "inverted extra large" and you can see the tooltip because of the 'inverted' nature of the pointer, but the tooltip is still partially covered by the pointer.

Ideally the choice would be to put the tooltip above the mouse pointer rather than below. When you increase the size of the mouse pointer it only increases down, not up. The point of the pointer is always at the top.

I'm going to try one more thing, increasing the size in the new settings after having selected "inverted", but i recall that it changes to the new pointer style. Ah, there is an inverted setting in the new options as well, and if i select that instead of the gray color i was using then one can read the tooltip through the mouse.

So, then my question becomes "can I put the tooltip above the mouse pointer?" Because it is still covered by the mouse pointer as is. I don't see anything in 'about:config', so far.

Thank you.

FIrefox has really slowed down over the last three months, to the point where it just wont load pages unless I clear the history. This is especially the case with google web apps. I did the firefox reset, turned off extentions, and this isn't a computer issue since its not present on other browsers. I dont want to give up on firefox, but this is a deal breaker if it cant do its core functionality. other people must be having this problem and leaving in droves!
