So Firefox suddenly and without asking just changed its look into something absolutely... No words can describe level of my disgust, so I wont fill this post by angry ranting.

Is there a way to get the old look back? (preferably without any downloads needed, cos at remote desktops that is not always an option)

Please, don't force me to use Chrome. I hate that browser, but they at least had decency to create skin, which makes it look like Firefox. The normal one, not the new diarrhea all over the screen one.

Why can I no longer use the Firefox default theme? I can select it, and it is listed as "Enabled" but the plain grey screen keeps showing not the default. Also, is there away to go back to Firefox 88.0.1 and not have it update again? I went to Add-ons & Themes and disable automatic updates but I still got the prompt informing me to restart Firefox to update. Is it just me or is Firefox really getting worse with each update?

Hello -

As I stated in the subject line, "Cannot Stop Updated (Current) Version of Firefox From Diverting Search Engine Search to URL Pane" I have been doting over this for an hour. I have set the respective about:config settings to the recommended setting. (I forget off the top of my head what the string was at the moment) But I did as directed. Refreshed the about:config. Logged off the Firefox browser. Cleared all the caches manually. (i.e., even though I have Firefox to clear everything when I close the browser) Restarted the browser. Problem persists. I DON'T like searching out of the URL pane! I like it like it has ALWAYS been prior: Using the search engine (I currently am using Google) search pane.

I have added NO browser extensions to cause this either by the way.

I have the 'system' theme enabled, but it doesn't look the way it shows in the thumbnail and it makes my tabs really hard to visually distinguish! Grey on grey, as opposed to grey tabs and a dark blue toolbar, etc. Is anyone else having this issue? Or any tips on how to make the system theme look the way it's supposed to?

Firefox 89 Unstable / Unusable

Following a recent update to version 89, a previously stable Firefox installation is now almost completely unusable. Just getting to the point of getting to this page where I am writing this post has seen THREE Firefox crashes, as switching tab to my email so as to get the verification code for my mozilla account was seemingly too much for Firefox to handle. Viewing Facebook messages and scrolling up to see comments made earlier in the day sees the layout of the page completely screwed up (main content shifted to bottom right corner, scrollbar shifted elsewhere, part of the page blank) and at that point trying to switch to another tab creates a strange hybrid situation where some of the contents from both tabs is merged together and is then the only content visible no matter which tab is then clicked on. Using Google Maps works for about 30 seconds and then the entire page flashes repeatedly with every move of the mouse, before this triggers a browser crash. I can be reading content on a news website and suddenly the tab crashes for no reason, and in most cases the browser then crashes thereafter. Restarting the browser and the news page tab will be shown and begin to load but then immediately crashes. These are just some of the issues that have occurred within just the past 2 hours, but this is a cumulative effect as Firefox has been becoming increasingly unstable to this point after updating to version 89 earlier in the week.... No other changes have been made since updating Firefox, here has been no Windows 10 updates, no other applications have been installed or updated, no other software has been either added or removed.

I could run the previous version of Firefox for several days, leaving the computer running but idle for a few hours each day, and still come back and resume where I had left off without issue. Now with Firefox 89 it is struggling to even go 30 minutes without tabs or the entire browser crashing. When can we expct a fix, or is there otherwise a way to roll back Firefox to version 88 without having to do a full uninstall/reinstall...?

for the past few weeks, I have often gotten the error message belowwhen utilizing Firefox. This occurs on many different sites. I can often just hit the refresh button and the website does come up. I am mainly accessing these websites through my bookmarks. I also get this error message sometimes when using Google Chrome. My Internet security provider is Kaspersky. I cannot recall if I had changed the setting by mistake.thanks in advance for your help. Arvind

Hi There,

I am using Firefox after moving away from chromium based browsers and have noticed some odd behaviour from Firefox build 89.0.2 and would like some help if possible.

The issue is, when typing quickly and i must remove the entirety of my input, i will press CTRL + A to highlight all, and sometimes hit the backspace button quickly and it will only move the cursor to the far left and does not delete the selection.

This is not the only issue with combo shortcuts, i have realised that CTRL + C sometimes will not copy the selection and is causing minor annoyance with using this browser.

If could be user error, however, the same usage on other browsers/windows UI never has this problem, and i am strugling to find information about this online hence the post.

Any information would be greatly apreciated.

TIA Brad

Since the release of Beta version 89.0b3, Firefox Beta on Win 10 keeps reverting back to .0b2. I cannot pinpoint exactly when it happens; sometimes after 'hibernation'; sometimes after 'sleep'. Getting damn frustrating, and I'm not nearly ready to move up from Windows.

How the heck do I track what's going on? All advice gratefully accepted!

With release of the newest version of Firefox, the search function for me has moved from the search bar up to the address bar, even when I try to initiate the search in the search bar.

How can I reset so that I can conduct my searches from the search bar?

I'm aware of the functionality of the address bar, but I simply don't want to conduct my searches there, nor in the additional search bar that can be added to the right of the address bar.

The only solution that I want is to use the search bar that appears beneath the Firefox logo to conduct my searches. Please let me know whether or not that's possible and, if so, how to adjust settings to accomplish this.

Thank you for your help!

This is a thank you follow-up to my yesterdays' post starting with; "firefox version 89 is insanely slow with no explanation had to try reset...." I can't find my msg from yesterday started with this, but wanted to thank you all for fixing Everything - Overnight! I am So glad I waited to, "system restore," until today bec it(MSs' OS) gave warning it might not restore All of the elements correctly. Thank you for your hard work and just appreciating how essential the browsers' Working is to our lives. It is. Thank you, thank you, thank you!  :) (I'm now thinking I should maybe put my updates on "notify me first /let me download when ready"...but I'm not really sure if that would accomplish anything because I'd still have to download them to see if there were problem/s that effected My devise in particular. Community posts don't tell you that - or what to do. Pop-up status msgs would be appreciated.. if you'd have time...even if not all knowing...just to know some are aware of X issue...working on it...estimated back up time... whether we could/should do a "system restore" & wait until further notice to DL again. But I guess our issues are what you need to see to fix them...But I digress. Thank you again for working hard to store functionality. I needed something right to happen in my life - someone to be an expert at what they do. Thanks for your humanity.
