how do i;

get rid of the blue starred  edit bookmark  which is of no use to anyone ?

dark mode as its too bloody dark , without changing my 'theme' ? the crap surround on tabs ? i know which tab i'm on , or even change the colour at least . the line beneath tabs that goes along the whole screen ? 'page info' back to where it was before it was moved for no reason what so ever ? and any other updated crap i havent come across yet .

still no tabs below , so many tweaks here and there and yet f/f still doesnt give us what we want only what they want us to have .

The Firefox is portable and I was able to install add-ons in the past.

I want the home page to be blank when I open the browser, I want the home button to a URL. This was possible in older versions, and when you then updated the browser it maintained this difference - if it was already set. I did that once but I don't remember how far back on versions that is an option. Is it possible to do this in 89? If not, how far back should I go to install, make my home page and home button settings, then update to the current version. Then we're all good.

If you could supply a link to the correct FF file (windows 10, 64bit) that would be even more good.

thanks

After updating to v.89 with new UI, i no longer can close tabs by clicking mousewheel while coursor is on the tab I intend to close. No setting for middle-click was found in the menus.

How do I restore old behaviour on Firefox 89? For now, downgrading version seems like the only option.

Hi,

I'm looking for a Firefox extension that works like FEBE used to.

I want to use one extension, and one extension only, to backup my Firefox history, extensions, bookmarks, tabs and profile.

I've searched for such an extension, but have come up blank. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

FEBE still seems available for download, but was last updated in 2017 (FEBE http://softwarebychuck.com/febe/febe.html). Does anyone know how well, if at all, FEBE works with Windows 10 and the current version of Mozilla Firefox?

If there is no extension that backups up bookmarks, tabs, extensions and profile in one go, I'd be grateful for any suggestions for extensions that backup bookmarks, history, extensions and profiles individually. I'm already using Tab Backup and Restore extension for tabs.

The reason I'm anxious is that my Firefox recently crashed and I lost all my laboriously created settings. I was lucky to get them back through one of the backup software programs I use.

My thanks for your advice and help in advance.

I'm using Ubuntu 21.04, with Firefox Version 89.0.1

I like my window control buttons to the left, and I prefer them on the top bar. In Version 89.0.1, I'm now stuck with two sets of window control buttons.

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/906698

So that was asked 9 years ago, and I tried adding those lines to my userChrome.css in the chrome folder of my profile directory. Sadly, that solution no longer works in Version 89.

See the attached image for my userChrome.css file, and how ridiculous it looks with two sets of window controls.

Please help me remove the minimize, maximize and close buttons when I maximize my firefox window.
