I liked Firefox the way it was, but just now today when asked if I wanted to select Themes I clicked no, and now my Grab Bar has changed from the System Color I like that matches all other applications' grab bars to White which blends into the rest of the page. That makes it difficult to find, and to control the window.

Is there a way to go back not knowing what else changed, or to put it another way: Is Firefox the browser that I want to use?

Can someone tell me how to turn off the Mozilla/Firefox ads? I am constantly bombarded with ads urging me to download Firefox, or to start syncing Firefox, when I am already doing both!

I am already bombarded with Microsoft's insistance on using Edge - which I won't - but I don't have a choice there as there is no option to disable or uninstall Edge from my Windows OS (or if there is, can someone share please?). The difference is, I am voluntarily using Firefox and these constant messages are seriously impeding my surfing and I am extremely tempted at this point to move to a new browser.

I, like everyone else, am suffering serious internet account fatigue and do not want yet another account just to accomplish a basic task, like contacting Mozilla. Since that appears to be the only option if I want to contact them directly, I am appealling to the community. Thank you thank you thank you for any help you can provide!

the new version 89 has changed the font of the menu bar, bookmarks and even the search engine bar. I've spent litterally hours trying to revert to the font I had in 88, with no luck. It looks awful, like I'm back in 1996, the used font can't even be identified by websites that recognizes fonts (what the font etc). Why is it so complicated to customize the UI ?

how do I "personalize" so that I can get rid of all of the "rectangles" in Firefox 89. It is extremely distracting. For obvious reasons I do not want to go to Chrome, but am tempted. 89 is so cluttered -- and is too bright (despite all of my changes to gray, the migraine-inducing bright white is still on many things like this discussion box.

My current Firefox currently looks like the attached. I'd like to change it so that line 2 (the one beginning 'Ask a Question') is below the current line 3. Is there any way of achieving this? I've tried Customize Toolbar, but that won't do it.

I would like to ask, if it is somehow possible to customize the vertical location or position of command bars? My browser, version 89, feels like Title bar Menu bar Tab bar Navigation | URL | Search engine bar Bookmarks bar Web page content Status bar

How do I change the vertical order of this? Personally, I would like to have the tab bar below the bookmark bar

In the tabs Settings and Customize Firefox I did not see anything that seems to address this topic.

Features designed for people with Low Vision, or other disabilities

There is a whole group of people out here with visual difficulties. Me personally, I have what's called Low Vision. I have difficulty seeing stuff clearly. I've read all the comments about the recent change to 89, and have myself tried the various themes provided to no avail. This is an extremely big concern, and may well be a legal one. Please reference the Americans with Disabilities Act.

Here are a few observations that may be useful to the developers: Never, Never, Never, NEVER present a user with Low Vision white (or light) text on a dark background. NEVER! We just can't read it.

CONTRAST. We need contrast. The most recent changes that came with 89 have no contrast. Don't argue with me; just believe me. There is not enough contrast to be able to distinguish between items (e.g. different tabs at the top). That's particularly applicable when I try to read a tab and can't because the tab's background has become transparent and I can't read the "print" because of the very busy theme design in the background. Reference my comment above about presenting white text on a black background. It's just as bad with a transparent background. When it comes to design, just because you can doesn't mean you should.

SIZE. For most of us, each item needs to be larger. I'm referencing the icons that represent the various hyperlinks. I have such trouble making out each one of them. And there does seem to be a lot of white space that we didn't have before. I don't need all that white space; I need to see what I'm looking at.

I'm going to suggest that you recruit someone with experiencing designing graphics for folks with vision challenges. Cause right now, it looks like you don't have anyone like that on your team. And if you can't present us with suitable choices, I'm willing to bet there's a considerable number of users who will find it necessary to move on to a new browers.

Thanks for listening.

I have vertical double vision, which can only be partially corrected with glasses. When I look straight ahead or to the right I am fine but as I look to the left my double my increases from 3 deg to 10 and at the extreme left it is 20 deg. so when reading text my brain has a problem going from the right end of a line to the left end of the the line below.

88 was OK as the as the top blue band helped my brain.

The bottom half of dbBenRoseySky is fine for me but the top half is hopeless. I struggle to read black on dark grey. Firefox Alpenglow would work for me, but the vertical stripes, particularly on the left throw my brain.

Any suggestions would be gratefully received.

Firefox has upgraded to 89.0 version and following last Microsoft trend, I've got bigger menu items and smaller menu fonts making it mor difficult to read and wasting screen space. I mean, where before were 30 items in marker's menu, now only fits about half of them.

It is really annoying getting texts more difficult to read in exchange to coloured blank space, not to mention if you have vision issues.

I've been trying made some kind of customization around this but it has been a loss of time. Is there some adjustement to fix this that I have not seen?

Thanks.

I like all my apps to show bright color when active and dimmed/no color when inactive. Firefox only has one setting - always on. I dislike monochrome themes like FF defaults to.

Basically I just want to use the colors I spent time choosing in windows 10 for the FF colors - title bar mostly.

Any ideas?

Thanks.

This is not the worst issue in the world, but I can't work it out.

I use Multi-Account Containers and have the facebook Container and Google Container extensions.

In Settings >> General >> Container Tabs...Settings, I can choose the colour and the icon that represents each container.

That works fine within a session, but when I restart, the Facebook container has always reverted back to the fence icon, in black. If I change the icon to something else, and/or change it to a different colour, it's ignored when I close and restart.

None of the other containers (Personal, Shopping, Banking, Work, Google) have this problem - I can set whatever icon and colour for them I like, and it's retained when I restart Firefox.

Any ideas?

Sorry but I am really a novice. Within the past week, I received something on my Firefox and I accepted it without really looking at it. Now, my tab page, with the four rows of shortcuts, has changed and is now white and bland. My shortcut icons all appear colorless and bland. How do I modify this and how do I restore what I had prior to accepting this recent change? Thank you in advance, Bruce
