Why I know it can be made visible

   Yesterday, the following archived version from June 19 was viewed.
   https://web.archive.org/web/20200619233630/https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/
   The "New Recovered" column was visible, along with three other columns.
   Today, as in the past, "New Recovered" is again hidden.

The question:

   *****   How can they be made visible?  *******
   

Misc Information including the current, not yet archived, page

   The current webpage is https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/
   The "New Recovered" column is hidden by default.
   Columns are hidden or unhidden by clicking the "Columns" button.
   Using Windows 10 1909 and Firefox 78
   

What I have tried

   Tab to "Columns" button; tried every modifier key, ctrl+<key>, Enter, right- and left-click...
   

How to see what I see

   First visit the current page https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/
   "New Recovered" column is not visible.
   Click "Columns" and select "New Recovered" which is column 7.
   (it is 6 in list because column 1 can't be hidden)
   
   Now, open an archived page.  This is the one which had no hidden columns yesterday.
   https://web.archive.org/web/20200619233630/https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/
   Note the "New Recovered" column is not visible.
   To prove the data has been captured:
   Select "Yesterday"
   Press "Ctrl+u" to see the "Page Source"
   Find (Ctrl+f) and find one of the following "New Recovered" values (96,845  10,942) World & USA
   Find "Columns" to see the list of available columns.  ("New Recovered" is column 7)
   Find again and to see that columns 7, 16-18 are set to false preventing being displayed.
   

Since "New Recovered" column on the archived page somehow became visible yesterday. I know it can be done. Thank you, in advance.

For some reason my "bookmarks/show all bookmarks" has flipped colours and is now white text with dark background (it wasn't like it 2 days ago). All other bookmark 'stuff' is normal. Changing the text/background works for everything else.

Update: (and title changed) To be clear, this affects the new window called "library", which opens with Ctrl-Shift-B or Ctrl-Shift-H, not any toolbars on the main Firefox screen. Changing themes does not affect

I have a 29 monitor and I cannot work with the new view. When I try to zoom out, only the text gets smaller, and the picture keep their sizes and that is not good. The only thing to get more infos at once is to reduce to one sixth of the size of the screen!

For example: The google page doesn't show the row for the settings under the text box. Facebook has a look like in my smartphone, the pics are so huge, they are over the whole screen. So mostly I have only one or two threads at once on the screen. I like when I have a few more at once on it.

Fingers crossed - I may have solved this problem by completely uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox. The problem: Every time I opened Firefox, the Safe Access app on my Synology RT2600ac router would send an alert to say that it had blocked a connection to vice.com. I've never visted that website, so I have no idea why Firefox would keep triggering an alert from my router. Has anyone any idea what might have cause this?

Using 78.0.1 on Windows 10, when I press F11 to get full screen in Youtube TV, it works, but it leaves a thin grey line at the very top of my screen (1280x800 resolution showing 1280/720 YTTV), and mousing over it drops down the Firefox tab and URL bars. That's "Full Screen Level 1". Using --kiosk prevents the dropdowns, but it doesn't get rid of the line.

If I play some video and mouse over the Firefox window while it's in Level 1 and not displaying any UI, a full screen icon appears in the upper right. Clicking it gets rid of the gray line and briefly shows the message, "youtube.com is now full screen." Now, mousing over the top middle of the screen displays that message instead of the Firefox UI. That's "Full Screen Level 2."

When I start Firefox, it remembers Level 1, but not Level 2, and the only way I see to get Level 2 is to click on the icon. I want Level 2 all the time for this profile, which I use on a small secondary monitor, and only for YTTV.

Any ideas?
