I know I am not the first person to complain about this. The spacing/padding between menu items, in particular the Bookmark menu is just ridiculously large. It got even bigger in 92.0!

I rely on Bookmarks heavily and use hundreds. I guess this was done for touch screens? The main interface is still currently the mouse for computers.

I see the only current fix is a using a stylesheet and it seems a bit involved. I have to give it a try. I am pleading with the designers, please give us the option to use compact padding once again. I am not sure why this is being forced on us. I really like Firefox, please don't make me look for another option. Thanks!

This new version of the browser does not maintain the appearance of windows when set to the system defaults. The title bar top of the window is almost white. Moreover,

both an active window and an inactive window look 

exactly the same! Why does Mozilla keep fiddling with these color schemes? Leave it up to the user!

David, there was new login to your account

xxxxx@gmail.com

Firefox 91.0 on Win10 Sep 15 at 9:40 AM (America/New_York) United States If you don't recognize this activity, review your recently used devices

This has resulted in big arguments with AV support and others who keep sending me Windows installers, for example. I finally learned just to use Safari, but this is bewildering and I haven't found an explanation or solution anywhere.

Wwhen I try to type in the field in the middle of my home page (Chrome in Firefox) why does it instantly transfer mt typing to the address bar. Also, why does the browser name appear in the address bar when I start to type? I know what browser I'm using. It's all very, very annoying. How can I stop all this stuff happening?

I just reinstalled Firefox. There was a "search with amazon.ca" at the bottom of the options when I clicked on the search toolbar. (This was not a suggested search engine on the bottom row, with the other search engines -- it was popping up with the list of websites I visit.)

I deleted Amazon.ca from the list of suggested search engines and now instead of "search with Amazon.ca" it simply shows "Amazon.ca Low prices fast shipping" in its place and I can't seem to get rid of this. And I want this gone for a number of reasons, the least of which is that it takes me to Amazon.com where I don't even have an account.

How can I define the Google (gmail.com) account that opens when I enter "gmail.com" in the search bar? The "donaldwilliams@gisthailand.org" is defunct; I cannot delete it. Yet Firefox defaults to that account.

How to change the default account?

This does not occur in Safari.

Greetings. I have scoured the web and read all the community posts on this robot head, under remote control, and orange stripes in the address bar problem that so many people seem to be having. There are a few answers, but almost all of them use very technical terms that are way above my head and not defined. None of them provide a sequence of steps to fix the problem that a browser novice might be able to follow. Surely there must be a way to fix this or to explain to frustrated users why it is there and not removable. None of my other Firefox browsers have this on other machines.

Is there a series of steps to solve the problem? That would be so helpful especially without undefined terms. Thanks so much. This type of answer will help so many frustrated users (me included of course) :)

I am VERY unhappy !!! For a long time I have had Firefox reopen tabs from the previous session, but today they are all gone !! I have read in some of the community questions that the recent update unchecked that option and when I looked, that was what had happened. I tried clicking on "restore previous session" but that only opened tabs I had used and closed this morning. Is it in any way possible to get back those tabs I used to have? It also seems that some of my recent Bookmarks have disappeared as well, yet it has retained bookmarks that are over 13 years old. I am running Windows 10 Professional version 20H2 Build 19042.1237... and Firefox version 92.0 Win

It was automatically deleted. No idea for how long its been there. could it have have done some damage unknown to my Antivirus ? How dangerous is it? Are there any further steps to take ?
