The Firefox Community here has tried to be very helpful with all the users who hate the changes in Version 89/90, but we need Mozilla/Firefox to hear us.

CSS work-arounds are fine for the IT-literate, which I am not. They are also only temporary. We have no indication that FF is even paying attention to our complaints.

They need to understand that some users have a keyboard and mouse attached to a PC, not a touchscreen like on a pad or phone. It looks like FF wants to cater to touchscreens. This DOES NOT WORK for PC users.

I suggest one UI for touchscreens and a different one for PCs. IIRC, there is a FF version for Windows AND a different one for Apple; why not do the same?

Nobody seems to have any response other than "use this CSS fix." I've also been directed to "clean up the help platform myself" - huh?

Can we please get SOME kind of response from the platform itself? Or are they just trying to get rid of all users without touchscreens?

Hello My desktop Firefox (iMac) did an automatic update and now I have the floaty tab redesign and I intensely dislike it. Is there a way to make the tabs look like how they did before? I am so unhappy. It's ugly and I can't tell the tabs apart very well (they have no dividing graphics). I am this close ---><--- to Time Machining myself back to the previous Firefox version. Help?

2 or 3 weeks ago I allowed Firefox to update, something I don't usually do, on the promise of a better browser. Foolish me Will I ever learn ? I can honestly say I see nothing improved from the Firefox I have used for years but found one big problem. The drop down menus have been altered to double or triple spacing, admittedly easier to read but, with years of use, my menus are large and now take forever to find the address I am looking for. How do I restore single spacing in drop down menus?

First of all: I tried to "give feedback" first, by going to that crowdicity website. I had to create an account, then I created an "idea" but it wasn't even allowed by the mods.

The 89 design is not user friendly, it takes away too much of my screen. I want to see the website, not some bloated tabs. And what on earth is meant by unsupported in the customize menu when I try to select compact? I always recommendet Firefox, among my friends and family as well as among my customers. Since day 1 I was with you, but this is just the absolute opposite of user friendliness. Even Microsoft Edge shows more of the actual website, I'm trying to look at. No "unsupported" compact mode needed, it is already even less obstrusive than that.

There were so many users who begged you not to do this. But you didn't listen. I want to be nice and kind but you gotta listen to your users, not just rely on your telemetry data. If someone chooses to install Firefox, a lot of people have the ability and knowledge to turn off that stuff. Those are your most loyal users. Listen to them.

Can I Decrease White Space (Padding) Between Bookmark Items in FF89?

Is there some way to reduce the white space / padding between bookmark and menu items in the new Proton interface introduced in Firefox 89? I don't have a touchscreen and all the extra white space just means more scrolling to navigate through my bookmarks.

The AskVG site has a 02-June-2021 article at https://www.askvg.com/tip-restore-old-classic-theme-and-ui-in-firefox-89-and-later-versions/ that explains how to disable all the new Proton interface changes in about:config, but is there one specific hidden preference / flag (e.g., browser.proton.toolbar.version) mentioned in that article that controls the spacing between bookmarks and menu items?

There is a also a companion article on AskVG titled https://www.askvg.com/tip-restore-compact-mode-density-option-in-firefox-customize-window/ with instructions on how to change two Density options (browser.compactmode.show and browser.uidensity) in about:config, but I have no idea if changing my density setting to "Compact" would actually decrease white space (padding) between bookmark and menu items.

The 89.0 (64-bit) update to Firefox is a joke! When are fixes coming or is there any way for me to return to the previous edition. I cannot get used to this charade.

I think that Firefox is by far the most superior browser and this update is just so not Firefox. It hurts. It hurts really bad!

Hello,

I just installed the new update. The new tab design is totally confusing/unclear to me. Especially the fact that the new tabs don't have a "seperator-line" to the next tab. Thats totally disturbing to me. It's really difficult for me to keep the overview about my normally around 60 tabs now. Is there an option to switch back to the old tabs look and feel? Are there other options to customize the look of the tab bar?

Thanks in advance and Greetz!

I don't now what happened but my tab bar has a different look to it now. Possible a Firefox update changed the look of my tab bar, but nonetheless, it is now harder to see the tab bar. It seems to have a more transparency look to it making it harder to see the tabs. How do I change the tab bar look to what it used to look like, which was easier to see? Can someone help? Thank you.

I deplore the way the browser looks now and want the old look back... I have vision problems and am totally ignorant about computers. I finally found FF and the last version was PERFECT. I could clearly see it, knew how to use it, and LOVED it and I WANT IT BACK. SIMPLY... Because I am so ignorant, the instructions I have seen so far might have been written in a foreign language. Is there a SIMPLE way to restore the OLD LOOK and feel. Keeping all the new security and other stuff is fine...although I was fine with the way it was, but I will have to find another browser if someone cannot help me fix the image back to the way it was. Please, why do they upgrade this stuff and not leave a way to keep the old look for those of us who don't want to change? If anyone can help me...I would really appreciate it. Thank you.

Its approximate position and appearance are shown on the screenshot.

If the button was intentionally removed, my question becomes a feature request. Thank you in advance!

After the Firefox upgrade to version 89, the icons disappeared from the menu. When I look at the changes page, I see that they have been specifically removed. In my case, the functionality of the Firefox menu has been severely compromised by losing those icons. So far, I’ve used those icons as a mechanism for faster navigation between different points. Because it is faster to recognize a single icon (character) than to read text. In the past, toolbar items overlapped menu items with icons. And now not. Not only that, the layout of the menu items has changed.

My suggestion would be to return the icons. And make them show / hide through settings.


I am not an English speaker, so I apologize if there are various errors in the text.
