Tried to open Yahoo mail - got message saying this version of Firefox does not support the latest Yahoo mail - update or use older version with limited functions in mail. Updated Firefox browser via link provided - installed - started browser - Home page opens OK - click new tab - try to open mail - new tab appears with black dot moving left / right but nothing else happens - whatever web site I try to open will not open in a new tab - but using the tab which opened with home page on - all websites open ok. Effectively can only have 1 tab open.

G'Day,

I earlier posted with respect to getting tabs to appear below the address and search bars on the browser. I managed to solve that issue; however, the solution has produced a curious side effect.

When the browser has entered Full-Screen, the tabs-bar does not disappear and appears as it would in a normal browser window while both the address and search bars have been hidden. Is there some way to fix this?

As well, on a Windows 8.1 lap-top, using the CSS below, the very top of the browser has been cut off. It is not possible to see the browser control icons nor is the menu-bar visible.

A screen capture is attached as well as the CSS which was suggested in my earlier post about getting the tabs below the address bar.

Thanks,

Jim

Hello, I need advices. When I open a new tab in firefox I can't navigate anywhere. If I put an address site it won't try to load it (navigate to it) and if I click an address in my bookmark it won't navigate at all either. The first page I open everything is going good, navigate and so on, but with all others new tabs nothing happens.

Do I do something wrong?

Thank you for your help. Best regards and thanks for your job to all of you.

Please, PLEASE put back the space between the tabs in the Proton version of Firefox. As a web designer, I don't understand how any designer on your staff or any supervisor would okay what looks like a seamless tab bar. The UX is horrible.

I've temporarily changed the about:config to mimic Photon. But I understand you are going to get rid of that ability in the about:config file.

Why do you tweak a decent UI into an unusable one? This is becoming an epidemic. Similar things happen on Facebook and with Photoshop (where "upgrades" make parts of the application unusable—that is, they no longer work).

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.

I use the session restore option, but when I open a new firefox window (by detaching a tab) and forget to close last the window with most tabs, the restored session is the single tab that I detached. This has happened a couple of times, but I can't remember exactly how to solve it, just that there was an action that would 'pop out' the previous session, like opening a new window and closing the last tab there. any tips?
