Hi all,

when opening a new tab, i activated the Google Search engine to search for content, yet when i start typing in that Google Search, the cursor immediately jumps into the address bar and searches there (which i dont want of course, this breaks the search engine altogether).

Is there a way to make the Search engine work and not let the cursor go into the address bar? Even copy and paste into the Search engine doesnt work anymore.

Regards

I just switched from Vivaldi, which is Chromium based, and I really do not like the weird arrows to go through unpinned tabs. I have so many pinned tabs that I cannot even see what the tabs are that are unpinned. If I have to keep that, I will, but I would prefer for it to squish like most.

I have included some pictures of what I mean:

So the new tab bar has been dissolved together into a mush of text, there is no definition between the tabs and the background.

My eyesight isn't great and the new update has made Firefox very difficult to use. Please bring back the tab defining features and the contrast between the tabs and the background. 'Modern' doesn't always mean better!

It would also be nice if you would respect the general Windows settings that make these components visible. Discontinuity between different apps makes it very difficult to navigate the browser.

When I browse eTOCS from scientific journals in my Gmail inbox, I would like to queue up a bunch of promising sounding articles in tabs behind the focused tab (gmail), thus completely finishing my perusal of the table of contents before checking out the articles that interested me. Under Preferences->General-> Tabs I have "open links in tabs instead of new windows" checked and "When you open a link in a new tab, switch to it immediately" unchecked. Despite this, every time I click a link in gmail, it creates a new tab and switches to that tab, so I have to repeatedly switch back to the gmail tab.

Hi all,

After a recent update to firefox I didn't like the premade colour themes, so I made my own. There is one thing that bothers me though, and I'm not sure how to change it: As you can see in the attached image, the tab I'm currently on has a clear distinct colour. However, all the unselected tabs have the same colour as the background. I find it annoying that this makes unselected tabs harder to spot, and makes it harder to see where one tab begins and the other ends. It is minor, but it annoys me. Does anyone know a way (either via settings or the add-on firefox color) for me to make the unselected tabs stand out from the background?

Thanks in advance.

(firefox version 89.0 64 bit)

My browser opens new links in new tabs. I want them to open new links in the same tab.

Others inquire about the same issue get a response saying:;

"Did you try it? Some sites add a target="_blank" attribute to links. Links with these attributes are supposed to open in a new window when left clicked. However, Firefox by default opens these links in a new tab in the current window. By setting browser.link.open_newwindow to 1, these links will instead open in the current tab/window."

I need step-by-step help understanding what I need to do to set the browser are suggested in the above response.

Hi,

Just got version 89.0 installed. And I totally don't like what happened to the tabs. They are visually disconnected from the page they belong to and transformed to some kind of buttons (at least when selected. When not slected only the caption is visible) . I cannot even imagine why such a useless change is done, but in terms of UI design this is not a good step. It makes things less clear.

I would like to have to old tabs back, but cannot find a theme which can do this.

Is there a setting with which I can set to old tabstyle back?

Thnx
