Hiya, I use bookmarks to keep a track of music I plan to listen to, and I had set up my folders so I could see everything in a subfolder on my screen. Now the font size or something changed and I can't see everything all at once on my screen. I don't have the time or energy right now to even think about trying to reorganise it all. Is there a way I can lower the font size or something to get back the space I lost?

Update - 16th Sept - Problem is back again with the latest firefox update

In Ubuntu 18.04, I bring up a new page, click in the search bar in the middle of the page. Then when I start typing it jumps to the address bar although I have already placed and preferred the search bar to the right. No! NO! NO!

I use Duck Duck Go but Google does the same.

It is bad enough that the upgrade was automatically loaded but on top of that, changing preferences including dumping my home page. Change privacy settings without asking ( to a lower level on top of that ).

Really POOR form.

I used to use a lot the three dots next to a webpage to share the page via airdrop (to have it/share it with my own phone or others'). Now the three dots have disappeared and, although I read here that I could do that by right clicking the page, the option for SHARE does not appear. Can you please explain how to do this now? (I use a Mac).

Hi,

Firefox has just updated itself on my laptop and the tab size is now too big. It just feels like a huge strip of the top of the screen is now being wasted. Is there a way to reduce the size of the tabs?

Thanks.

My setup:

  • FireFox: Version 89 for Mac
  • macOS Big Sur - Version 11.5.2
  • Only other Browser is "Safari"
  • Mac is only a few months old and fully setup by for me by Apple Support before purchase.

It does NOT matter what I have done to set Firefox as default, it is being required to be set up as though it is the first time every time I start up my Mac.

  • I have tried the following:

- System Preferences General, Set Default web browser as "Firefox" - this does show 'Firefox' as the default browser - Within Firefox, Preferences,General, Set FireFox as the Default Browser - this does show Firefox as the Default Browser - When the above did NOT seem to make any difference, 'Refreshed Firefox' - I also setup Firefox Options to "start up at Login" all the time.

NO luck. Currently living with the issue by opening Firefox every time I log in. Not sure what else I can do.

Does the "Update Available" popup screen shown in the uploaded image come from Firefox? It keeps coming back it seems every time I open Firefox. I clicked "Update" a few times, but Firefox never got updated, as far as I can tell. I tried turning off NordVPN but that does not allow an update to occur. Now I just click "Dismiss" if I need to see what's behind the popup. You have to click either "Update" or Dismiss" to get it to go away. There is no "x" at the upper right on the popup screen, which would allow you to close the screen without clicking either "Update" or "Dismiss". I worry that by clicking on either I am downloading some malware. William F Briel

Good afternoon. My Firefox has been updated to the new version but I noticed that the font size in my bookmarks dropdown menu has increased. I would prefer to make it smaller as it used to all fit in one column without the need to scroll. Could someone tell me how, or if this can be done with the new version? Thanks and hope to hear back soon.

On Windowws10, I am at version 89.0. I think that's the version that introduced this problem for me. If I open a new window, it is a duplicate of whatever window I was in before. That is, the new window has all the tabs the other window did. So, File-New Window copies whatever tabs are on the current window I am on. I've never seen this before. How can I make FF return to its normal behavior of giving me a window with nothing but a start window on it? Maybe I should go back several versions because recent changes like this and the negative effect a new release a few months ago had on default screen colors, have made my use of FF harder. Thanks.

I'm trying to remove the shadows that appear below and to the right of the bookmarks menu in Proton (i.e. the menu that pops up when you click the Bookmarks button on the toolbar).

I've managed to remove the shadow from the main bookmarks menu using this CSS:

 box.panel-arrowcontent {
   box-shadow: none !important;
 }

However, that doesn't remove the shadow from the submenus that pop up for each folder within the bookmarks menu (see the 1st screenshot).

I'm trying this using the following CSS:

 hbox[part=innerbox] {
   box-shadow: none !important;
 }

What's puzzling is that according to the inspector window, this CSS appears to be correct. In the 2nd screenshot, notice that my rule is shown as being in effect, and overriding the original rule in panelUI.css.

However, despite what the inspector shows – the shadow is still very much there!

Has anyone succeeded in removing this shadow?

I open the terminal (I'm using FreeBSD) and I run: `firefox --help` and I get a lot of command line options. However there seems to be no way to simply get the user agent string. This is kind of annoying because I might want to plug the current version of my Firefox browser in some automated scripts. At the moment I need to open Firefox, then go to the console and type in: `window.navigator.userAgent` copy the string manually and paste it wherever I want to use it. It would be really nice if there could be an extra option to the `firefox` command, like: `firefox --user-agent` that prints this information in the console. Maybe there's a way, if it is it must be really hidden because I couldn't find relevant information on how to do it.

Kind regards, Lucas.

This: https://blog.mozilla.org/addons/2021/04/19/changes-to-themeable-areas-of-firefox-in-version-89/

Says that I can’t have lines separating my unused tabs anymore. This is SO annoying. Can anyone help me get borders between my unused tabs?

Also, WHY ARE YOU DOING THIS Mozilla? Now I have to stop EVERYTHING that I am doing and research how I can make your browser work the way I want it to. Why do you always assume that you know what is best for me?

I tried the "Stylish" add-in but when I try to install a specific style from their site - nothing happens.

The Firefox Universe is extremely vast, and trying to Google “lines between my unused tabs” is getting me nowhere. I don’t know how to develop themes. I don’t code. I just want the browser to look like it did last week. Is it really so much to ask?

Every. Single. Time. I update Firefox - I regret it!!!

Dear Community,

Something I use every day for work is the Google search for "hotels near Brooklyn, NY" (for example or any address in different cities), which I then choose the first photo map result.

And almost always, even while in troubleshooting safe mode), the map will always load (and expand and contract), but unfortunately the hotel description results on the left will not populate (even though it begins to populate - and then disappears. When it doesn't, I constantly have to reload the page to make it work. I haven't seen this problem in 5 years, and Google Chrome (which I hate using, but used to test against Firefox) has no problems loading the page each and every time (regardless of the address or city name I use). This began occurring within seconds of updating to the latest Firefox version. I suggest experimenting a few times so you can see the problem develop. You can also scroll to the bottom of the page and select page 2, to also see this lack of population.

Thanks to Proton expanding my Bookmarks Menu off the bottom of the screen, I was re-arranging my bookmarks folders. While wondering which of my folders I had to prune, I noticed another in-built redundancy. The entry "Manage Bookmarks Ctrl+Shift+O" appears twice, at the top and the bottom of the menu. Incidentally the bottom entry is misaligned (Firefox v89 on Windows).

Is there a particular reasons for this duplication? Can I remove either of these entries?
