The bookmarks are now all spaced out so they can't be read and they take up 2 to 3 times more space. This is AWFUL. The tabs are now "floating around" so they don't look like tabs and also CAN'T BE READ. Isn't there anyone there that knows how to do graphics? Both of these things were just fine and DID NOT need to be changed. And now they're awful and unusable.

How do I change them back?

So I've noticed recently that Firefox, or rather more specifically, Noscript, seems to think a lot of things are XSS attempts, which had never been the case before, leading me to think these are false positives. I've had no luck in undoing anything that was blocked, as mentioned in another thread. I'm trying to figure out if resetting Firefox would be a good idea. My problem is that one of my extensions is directly tied to my antivirus program, so my question is basically this; would the extension be able to be turned back on as is, or would I have to reinstall the antivirus program to get it back? I've never seen it come up in a basic search for add-ons without it. So it sounds like I'd have to reinstall it. Can anyone confirm this? If so, I'll have to wait a day or two to get this reset done.

Alternatively, I'm debating just deleting the current cookies and the like from the browser. Would this be a better alternative to a full on refresh/reset of Firefox?

When I try to screenshot and download an image it screenshots multiple images instead. My OS is Windows 10 and I'm having this problem when trying to screenshot and download an image from Instagram. I right click on the image as I always have and it screenshots and saves multiple images instead. I never had this problem before updating to Firefox 88 and I've been using the screenshot feature for well over two years. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox and I'm still having the same problem. The image I'm trying to save is the one on the upper right.

The Firefox Community here has tried to be very helpful with all the users who hate the changes in Version 89/90, but we need Mozilla/Firefox to hear us.

CSS work-arounds are fine for the IT-literate, which I am not. They are also only temporary. We have no indication that FF is even paying attention to our complaints.

They need to understand that some users have a keyboard and mouse attached to a PC, not a touchscreen like on a pad or phone. It looks like FF wants to cater to touchscreens. This DOES NOT WORK for PC users.

I suggest one UI for touchscreens and a different one for PCs. IIRC, there is a FF version for Windows AND a different one for Apple; why not do the same?

Nobody seems to have any response other than "use this CSS fix." I've also been directed to "clean up the help platform myself" - huh?

Can we please get SOME kind of response from the platform itself? Or are they just trying to get rid of all users without touchscreens?

Words just "appear", the messages get sent before I even press "send". Often the document is still in edit mode! When I do "send", I find that multiple duplicates were sent! What happened & what can I do about it?? Page frames flicker then realign. I don't trust fb anymore & What should I do? Both fb & google!! Google has most of my passwords! I've been watching it all degrade. Is the "Droid" Malware is suspected of anything.

My Firefox is currently on version 69.0. I am trying to update it by going to Firefox -> About Firefox. When I click about Firefox, the window opens displaying my current version. From the articles about updates I read, it should start automatically updating, but nothing happens. I click the "Restart to Update Firefox" button, and my Firefox session is restarted but I am still on version 69.0. I do not see any other way online to go about updating Firefox other than this route, so I am not sure what to do. Any thoughts? Thank you!

My homepage now has two toolbars at the top of the page and I can't remove the second - it says Guardian news etc. etc. The layout of bookmarks has also changed - no colour on the folders (not a huge problem) but the spacing between entries is larger which makes it hard to access the entire list. Can anyone help please?

Whoever thought Firefox 89 was a good idea is not someone with whom I agree. 89 is awful - I disregarded the update notice for days but then got sick of the reminder. BAD idea on my part. Is there any way to get rid of the topmost "tab" - they ARE NOT tabs - bar? I really liked the previous tabs that LOOKED LIKE TABS and DID NOT TAKE UP MORE ROOM on the page. Can I go back to the previous version? This one is really bad. Like, REALLY bad. Firefox "developers" need to give an option to check out the new update before committing to it.
