Chrome has a really fantastic feature called "Tab Groups" - it's pretty self explanatory but it basically allows you to quickly group related sets of tabs.

This is an incredibly useful feature but it seems Firefox hasn't got anything like it.

I've tried a few of the third party add-ons such as Tree-Style-Tabs but they're all over-complicated, take up too much screen real estate or change the way tabs operate.

Is adding simple Tab Grouping functionality on the Firefox roadmap?

If not - has anyone found any good add-ons to replicate the Chrome functionality?

Hello,

I just upgraded to Firefox 87 and noticed that I wasn't able to go back to the previous webpage by clicking on the backspace button like what I have done in the past if I'm not using a mouse on my laptop and had to click on the back button in the toolbar with the trackpad. I'm not too sure of why that happened with the upgrade and was a little surprised about that. Hope I can be able to get around this in some way if one of you know anything about this. Thanks.

I noticed Windows 10 now has a feature under "App volume and device pref" that enables multiple audio sources to be channeled into multiple outputs(speakers, headphones etc) simultaneously. However, it only drills down to application level, and no further. So I'm wondering is it technically possible for each Firefox tab to be individually assigned to an audio output of the user's preference, maybe in a dropdown when right clicking the tab?

Hello i just made the update from version 88 to version 89 and i noticed, that the design of the Tabs was changed. Also the coulor of the title bar does not longer match my windows theme. I looked trough the new design and i must admit that i does not like that minimalism style at all. Is there any way to get atleast the colour of my title bar back to my normal Windows setting?

This: https://blog.mozilla.org/addons/2021/04/19/changes-to-themeable-areas-of-firefox-in-version-89/

Says that I can’t have lines separating my unused tabs anymore. This is SO annoying. Can anyone help me get borders between my unused tabs?

Also, WHY ARE YOU DOING THIS Mozilla? Now I have to stop EVERYTHING that I am doing and research how I can make your browser work the way I want it to. Why do you always assume that you know what is best for me?

I tried the "Stylish" add-in but when I try to install a specific style from their site - nothing happens.

The Firefox Universe is extremely vast, and trying to Google “lines between my unused tabs” is getting me nowhere. I don’t know how to develop themes. I don’t code. I just want the browser to look like it did last week. Is it really so much to ask?

Every. Single. Time. I update Firefox - I regret it!!!

Is there some way to reduce the white space / padding between bookmark and menu items in the new Proton interface introduced in Firefox 89? I don't have a touchscreen and all the extra white space just means more scrolling to navigate through my bookmarks.

The AskVG site has a 02-June-2021 article at https://www.askvg.com/tip-restore-old-classic-theme-and-ui-in-firefox-89-and-later-versions/ that explains how to disable all the new Proton interface changes in about:config, but is there one specific hidden preference / flag (e.g., browser.proton.toolbar.version) mentioned in that article that controls the spacing between bookmarks and menu items?

There is a also a companion article on AskVG titled https://www.askvg.com/tip-restore-compact-mode-density-option-in-firefox-customize-window/ with instructions on how to change two Density options (browser.compactmode.show and browser.uidensity) in about:config, but I have no idea if changing my density setting to "Compact" would actually decrease white space (padding) between bookmark and menu items.

Hello all,

I used to have this setting whereby I had an icon at the end of the address bar which I could click on to copy whichever link was current at the time. I reinstalled Firefox or something due to a problem I had and I can't seem to find that option anymore. I can't remember if it was an add-on or an option in Firefox itself as standard.

I'm using Firefox 89.0 on a Mac.

Does anybody know how I can get that icon back?

Thank you.

In the latest update (89.0) the size of the font in drop-down menus has increased. When I go to my book marks the number that show on the screen has decreased by 28% which means a lot more scrolling. The original font size was very read able so why change. The question is, how can I reset the font size back to the original size? Geoff

hi, the latest update changed the homepage a lot. The most bothersome thing i have noticed is that when i type anything into the search area it immediately moves from the search bar in the middle of the page to the address bar at the top of the page where i usually just get URL's. It doesnt serve any purpose i can think of and i have never used the address bar to do normal searches before. Is there any way to change my homepage back to the way it was? Or at least stop the search and address bars from being linked?

After the latest update to 89.0, the UI changed somewhat and I'm having a problem with one of the changes.

The size of the picture of the icons has gotten smaller. Its hard to see what the smaller picture looks l ike as I have issues with my vision as I get older.

How can I increase the size of the icons and make the pictures fill the icon preview like they used to without that black border?

Preferrably if possible, I'd like to increase the size of the three rows of the text and pictues to be bigger as well if possible.

Thanks!
