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.

Firefox shows a blank white page for every tab and nothing seems to fix this. I cannot access the options menu, it simply won't open when I click it.

I have tried:

Opening it in the troubleshooting mode Refreshing firefox (resetting it to the default) Uninstall and reinstalling Uninstalling, removing any folders relating to firefox from appdata, and then reinstalling

Nothing works. It's still unusable, and I don't really want to use chrome or edge. Any help is appreciated.

Locking this thread.
Please continue here: [/questions/1346320]
When I bring up the Firefox browser the page has macro blocking as best as I can describe it on the home page, and also when I bring up website pages. Portions of the page block out periodically during all sessions, the update didn't fix anything with my experience. I've turned off hardware acceleration, turned off all extensions as was prescribed and the problem persists and I don't know what else I can do. I have stopped using Firefox as my default browser for the reasons stated and I haven't found any solutions on the forums.

I have already asked this question and has gotten the same solution as (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1290163) and it doesn't make any sense. I am on Firefox version 90.0.2 (20210721174149), and would love if someone could give me a solution that makes sense, works, and isn't a copy-paste of another answer. (Sorry if I sound rude, I'm just very annoyed.)

When I launch Firefox, it refuses to open My Yahoo, which is the home page I have been using for many years. My.yahoo.com is still entered in Settings as my home page. Even if I type the URL into a new tab, it will not load. I have now switched to Edge as my default browser and it is working just fine. I would like to go back to Firefox, but there is no way I can do that if it wont even let my use my preferred home page. This is the second time I have presented this problem. So far - no response. I can be reached at ... @yahoo.com.

How can I start fresh as a new Firefox user?

My switch from the release version to ESR seemed to go well, but my history and many of my settings and data, including my pinned tabs and extensive notes used by add-ons, were gone. I managed to reconstruct most of them, but was distressed to find that when Fx updated my ESR version those settings were again gone.

I have again restored most of the lost settings (including the one not to automatically update!) but I know I can't defer Fx updates indefinitely, and I also expect I may want to return at some point to the release version--and I desperately don't want to have to reconstruct my settings any more (or at least more than one last time). I'm not concerned about the loss of my history

Since I'm prepared to note all my settings first, starting fresh seems like a viable solution. I just need to know how (unless you can suggest a better option). I'd be happy with either the release or ESR channel.
