I finally turned off the menu bar some time back and started using the Bookmarks Menu Button (the little star with an underline). With v89, the dropdown menu from this is huge. The fonts are a lot bigger than in v88, and for some reason, there are now two "Manage bookmarks" items, one at the top and one at the bottom. Is there any way, either official or through userChrome.css, to choose a small font? I already have a userChrome.css that I used to remove items from the old Bookmarks menu on the menu bar, but those don't apply to the BM Button.

FF 88/widevine bug with Amazon prime videos not playing HD 1080p

Whenever I play a video on amazon prime thru FF 88 it is SD. When I go to the options for video it says HD is unavailable even if best is selected. When the video first plays the HD icon will come up for about a second, but faded, than go away right after. Usually when it does that it becomes solid white and shows HD at 1080. I'm using Win 10 64-bit Pro 20H2.

When I try watching the same videos in Chrome I have no issues and the content plays fine in HD 1080p.

I tried removing all history, refreshing FF, uninstalling and re-installing my NVIDIA drivers but same issue. I am on 88.0. No add ons or themes. Just default FF after refresh. Nothing helps.

I have seen other reports of widevine crashing but I dont have that issue. FF just wont play Amazon video in HD anymore.

Edit:

After trying some things and completely uninstalling firefox from system and all folders I finally got Amazon to play HD 1080p content again, but only a short while.

For some reason on refreshed or completely new installs of FF 88 amazon would have issues and only play SD. Even if all folders were deleted before install. When I installed the previous version of FF to 87 content was once again playing back at HD 1080p. I than updated to 88 and it was ok but only for a bit.

Even though FF 87 installed and updated widevine, FF version 88 would update it again a short while later but the version numbers of widevine (4.10.2209.1) stayed the same. Whatever version 88 is doing to widevine it seems to cause a conflict preventing Amazon from playing videos in HD content.

Edit 2:

From my other computer which had not updated to 88 yet had widevine version 4.10.1582. I took all those files and replaced the ones in the folder for 4.10.2209.1. I have updates disabled for widevine now and Amazon is playing HD 1080p once again with no issues. So whatever the update did with widevine it is definitely causing a conflict with playing back HD 1080p content on Amazon Prime video.

I am running firefox 88.0 on Windows 10. google.com is my home page. Lately, the search box in the middle of the screen is simply gone. This is the one with "Google Search" and "I'm feeling lucky" buttons, also gone. If I run Edge on the same machine the box is there. Likewise it is fine on Linux. Other Windows 10 machines I've check are also OK. The only difference I can see off-hand is that the problem computer is 32bit.

Any ideas?

For about..hmm... I'm not sure how long. At least a couple months, Firefox has been acting very strange. Before christmas I did a reset on firefox to clear up some issues. I don't run very many add-ons. I use moderator toolbox for reddit, ublock origin, and a "view image" add-on to add the "view image" option back into google images.

That's it.

I've had all of those for much longer than this problem has existed.

I checked browser.tabs.unloadOnLowMemory and it's set to false.

I have 32 gb of ram and my ram is nowhere near being fully used.

What I'm seeing is that if I have 4 or 5 tabs open, going back to a reddit or youtube tab that I always have open results in that tab being unloaded and having to wait while it reloads the tab.

I also notice from time to time that middle clicking something to open a link in a new tab results in the browser jamming up from anywhere from 1-3 seconds.

Used Firefox for years and never seen any kind of issue like this before. I used to be able to easily open 20-30 tabs if I was going through google search results to try and find some information and never had any problem.

I can log into this website on Chrome, but not on Firefox. Chrome doesn't work with my high contrast theme since the last Windows update, so I really need to use Firefox, but I also would like to be able to use this website too. This website doesn't offer a regular login option, you have to use either Facebook or a cell phone. I don't have a cell phone that gets text messages, so I can't do that, so I need to be able to log in with Facebook. I can't find anywhere in my setting where I have it disabled. I even have the site whitelisted (in Trusted Sites) in Ublock Origins to no avail. I may have, at one point, a long time ago, once dismissed a Facebook log in prompt and told it to never ask me again. How would I go about telling it to please ask me again?

How can I keep the browser setting to open pdf files with Adobe Acrobat, without doing advanced customization? It works every time I reset the option, but changes to "save" for the next time. Adobe says I should switch browsers, to Chrome for example.

I used to have Acrobat as an extension, but now there doesn't seem to be an option for that. Why is this?

how do i;

get rid of the blue starred  edit bookmark  which is of no use to anyone ?

dark mode as its too bloody dark , without changing my 'theme' ? the crap surround on tabs ? i know which tab i'm on , or even change the colour at least . the line beneath tabs that goes along the whole screen ? 'page info' back to where it was before it was moved for no reason what so ever ? and any other updated crap i havent come across yet .

still no tabs below , so many tweaks here and there and yet f/f still doesnt give us what we want only what they want us to have .

Is there a way to easily modify the right click menu when clicking a tab because 'Reload Tab' use to be on the top of the list when you would right click on a tab, now the top option is 'New Tab' and theirs the '+' on the right of the tab on the right so it also seems a little redundant to have it top of the right click list. Also Reload Tab seems more useful than the New Tab. So is there a way to easily modify that menu to get Reload Tab back to the top?
