My PC (running Windows 10) crashed and when I restarted I'd lost all of my bookmarks plus I was prompted to create a new user profile. I'm running Firefox 89.0.1 I've tried following the information to find and restore my bookmarks but when I try this all Firefox prompts me is to import from another browser platform (which I don't use). Any ideas?

I read this article: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1092509

And i switch "browser.tabs.showAudioPlayingIcon" to "false" and restart the browser. But I am still able to turn off the sound by clicking the icon on the tab. The config option is still set to "false".

What is the proper way to disable mute icon on tabs?

Firefox was working well - and unfortunately I had forgotten to switch updates off. Now display settings on some pages are really grim from a "not great eyesight and now things are tinier" point of view.

I use Protopage (custom home page with news etc) and if you open a second tab, it allows you to have a selection of Icons each with a regularly used link. It still works, but after FF upgraded itself, the image in the tile has shrunk to a fraction of the original size - and is now surrounded by a thick border of white (with rounded edges of course).

Is there a "high vis" option which simply removes wasted white space which seems to have just been added at the expense of clarity?

Is there a way to either revert to a previous version OR to undo the visual messing about they have decided we all must want? If so, please let me know, as this "let's change something to make it harder to see", approach is a bit annoying.

Alas I cannot do a "before" image, but the "after" one is shown, complete with my efforts to explain what has changed.

Any guidance on either reversing the update or switching of the "shrink image and surround with large white border" geratfully received please.

Many thanks.

Hi,

I always disable 'Top Sites', 'Recommended by Pocket', 'Highlights' and 'Snippets' under 'Firefox Home Content' in about:preferences#home on all my devices - I like to have a clean homepage with just the web search bar waiting in the middle of the screen.

Within the last few days, those specific preferences have turned themselves back on. What's really frustrating is that when I turn them back off, they persist for a short while, but then turn themselves back on again, often all of them at once, but sometimes a subset!

I've gone as far as deleting my profile and starting afresh, but the problem reoccurs.

I'm at a loss with where to go from here or how to diagnose it further and would appreciate any advice!

Thanks, Phil

I retired from my workplace and was previously syncing my settings to my workplace email lkendall@keeferealestate.com. When I got my computer back I had a new user profile and when my I.T. guy and myself signed in (forgot my Firefox pwd) so we reset my pwd and then changed my email to my personal email address lkendall@genevaonline.com. Unfortunately after the browser finished syncing none of my saved sites, pwd, bookmarks, etc., came back....help!

The bookmarks are now all spaced out so they can't be read and they take up 2 to 3 times more space. This is AWFUL. The tabs are now "floating around" so they don't look like tabs and also CAN'T BE READ. Isn't there anyone there that knows how to do graphics? Both of these things were just fine and DID NOT need to be changed. And now they're awful and unusable.

How do I change them back?

Hello all. I seem to have a new version of Firefox installed on my computer, or an update has made it a newer version (89) and now it does not save my passwords. When I close down the laptop and re start it the next time I want to use it and go to firefox, none of the paswords I had thought I'd saved previously are there. This is very frustrating as I have a lot of places I visit which I had, in previous times using an earlier version of firefox, saved passwords which populated the correct places. I am no techie so really don't understand what has happened. Every time I want to get onto even my email, I have to leaf through my black book to find the necessary password and do it all manually.

Please can anyone help?
