I put on the latest upgrade, but now os won't accept any old password and I cannot use sync as I have no access to my logins and passwords. If I choose forgot password , the system will destroy all my logins anyway. I can spend a great amount of time recreating all passwords, or maybe I can downgrade to the last version, but I am unsure as how to do that??

Currently on v88.0.1 on Windows 7 desktop, Windows 10 Laptop and Mac OSX Sierra. Looked at a review with screenshots of v89 and noticed a few issues. Where did the 'Customize Toolbar..." option go? It also appears the the 'Compact View' for tabs is being moved/phased out? that would not be ideal on a small screen. Being able to customize my view is one of the main selling points for Firefox. On Windows 10 HP laptop we still put up with occasional audio getting killed in Firefox (Edge never does this) and having to play a wave file in Groove Music to get the sounds back.

I've used Firefox since 2001. Twenty years I've been able to customize it like I want.

A few months ago I switched from ESR to Release channel because the release version could still be tweaked to the way I like it. Huge mistake!

Version 89 totally destroyed everything I like about Firefox! I use Firefox on a large monitor from my easy-chair. I NEED compact layout. Everything is zoomed anyway. I hate the new tabs! I ESPECIALLY hate the double-spaced bookmarks! I want to continue to use a custom CSS in "chrome" folder.

I switched back to the ESR channel (FF78) and had to re-tweak my about:config settings, reinstall and tweak add-ons and load hundreds of bookmarks to get the favicons back. Unique favicons make it much easier to differentiate between sites. Generic icons suck. Major hassle!

I will stick with Firefox ESR until it too becomes unusable for me. At that point, sadly, my decades long use of Firefox will come to an end.

I include two screen grabs that illustrate how I like my set-up. Note how easy it is to tell one tab from another.

Why "fix" what ain't broke?

It's all in the title. The "quick searches" feature that pops up when I highlight text is a lot more annoying then useful, so I turned it off... and it seems to re-enable itself randomly. One time I disabled it, and after 5 seconds, it re-enabled itself. So annoying. I've made so many accidental searches with that stupid feature. I mean, how many people copy text just to search it up? Even then, they can highlight the text, right click, then click "Search (engline) for (text)".

The point being, the feature is re-enabling itself randomly, and it's getting on my nerves.

I don't see any option within the settings to turn it off. Any ideas?

Thanks,

I have this problem when typing in firefox input form (address bar, text area...), using Vietnamese Keyboard (Telex) of window 10: - After completed word and added a space, backspace to the end of previous word, press dot (comma...) key, that dot will replace previous word. Example: "buffalo has the horns and", backspace to "buffalo has the horns" then press dot key, it will be "buffalo has the ." - The problem doesn't occur if type the mark right after typing the word, when the dash line is existing under the word. - The problem doesn't occur in Edge, Chrome, Word, Excel, Notepad ... - The problem occurs when using Vietnamese Keyboard (Telex) of window 10, doesn't occur when using default keyboard of window 10. - Auto correct setting was turned off in Typing setting. I have used firefox for more than 15 years, and still don't want to switch to Chrome. Is there anywhere I need to configure?

Win10 professional in desktop Upgraded today 06/08/21 after much nagging.

I'm now unable to use the Google search engine box in the center of the page, it goes to the address bar -- font's too small. Besides, from what I've been able to gather, searches from the address bar may invite invasion.

I've done some research on similar questions, but the usual remedies, which suggest looking into Options and editing preferences, but my browser is now being controlled by "my organization" -- apparently Bitdefender Total Security, which is depriving me of access to the settings and preferences.

Automatic Update Lost 100+ Tabs Can't Find recovery files

I've followed the advice in all the threads I can find from the last three years about how to handle a situation where you cannot use "restore previous session" in history.

As of approximately 7am this morning my computer was fine, I closed the lid (to let it sleep) while I was at work etc, but found that my laptop had restarted when I went to wake it up tonight around 8pm. It appears as though at 7:47 there was a crash of some sort.

It doesn't look like a "sessionstore.jsonlz4 " was created, and when I try to see previous versions of literally anything in "(c:) > users > [my info] > app data > roaming > Mozilla > Firefox > Profiles" ALL are without one despite the folder properties showing a "created" date that fits with when I created a firefox account two -ish years ago.

Every folder in the second profile (which shows that it was created today) is empty.

Has anyone else heard of an update overwriting all history like this? I had a, frankly, problematic number of tabs open (across three windows, each with a different general theme, ie general stuff in window a, weird hobby in window b, and A Lot of tabs for a personal project that I mostly didn't have bookmarked in window C), and have never had anything remotely like this happen before.

Is this a hopeless cause? What can I do to prevent this from happening again?????

Any advice would be appreciated. The tabs lost in my "personal project research" window represent about six months of weekends worth of effort and I'm so upset about it that I can barely articulate how stupid I feel for having passively allowed this to happen because I was tired last night when I got home from work and ignored the "update" prompt in the top right corner (normally I make sure to save my session and update, but I thought "eh, I'll do it tomorrow when I get home from work").

I'm running F'fox 89.0 (64-bit) on Windows 10, and generally I like it and it is my default browser. But recently its previous colour scheme (Win 10 defailt) has been changed, and the top window border and all the tab labels have turned white instead of dark blue.

I find this most unuseable! I've tried tinkering with Options, and even installed the Firefox Color Extension, which didn't really help, and was most unfriendly to use, so I uninstalled it again.

I've also tried uninstalling the hole of Firefox and reinstalling it again, and even running a full Restore from System Restore, but none of this has helped!

Any bright ideas? - I don't really care what caused it, I just want my colours (sorry, US colors) back!
