It's a very bad idea to move the screenshot function from the context menu in the address bar to a toolbar item you first have to position by customizing. This is exactly the kind of unnecessary interface change which annoys so many Firefox users. Okay, so why is it bad? Most "normal" users don't fiddle with interfaces, they accept it as it is. They expect functions they often use to stay in the same spot. If it's no longer there they think it's gone (and they're frustrated). They surely won't go looking for it in a customization menu. For me as a web designer the screenshot tool was extremely handy when dealing with clients, because it was very easy to explain where to find and how to use it, to send a screenshot of a website problem. Again, many common users don't know how to take screenshots with their system tools, so this was really helpful. Now, instead of explaining where to find it, I'll first have to explain how to customize the toolbar, what the item looks like, how to position it, etc. etc. The simplicity and helpfulness is gone. Suggestion: leave the screenshot function where it is by default, but offer the advanced users a way to make it a customizable item. Everyone is happy.

P.S. I only post this here, because the feedback site is currently deactivated.

"Pocket List" has disappeared in the drop down menu under the "library" icon where it used to be not more than a few days ago. It's not under the Bookmarks icon, either. the "Pocket" icon is in the menu bar, and I can save items to Pocket, but can no longer locate the page with the articles. "View List" does appear when you click the Pocket icon, but it also saves whatever page you're on whether or not you want to save it.

Hi all,

I've been having this issue for a few days now, I've tried to uninstall, re-scan, reboot my pc and reinstall Firefox but they still PERSIST!! Every time I open firefox for the first time after turning on my pc, Avast pops up with the malware warnings. I've used Avast, Malwarebytes and AdwCleaner but nothing seems to be working. I've disabled and uninstalled the ad-ons as well.

I'm not sure how else to remove the malwares because it seems to be running from "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe".

Please help.

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.

However, every time I hit F10, it brings up the Menu bar, which means I have to stop and hit F10 again or hit ESC. This is quite frustrating and slows me down immensely when completing my homework.

I found out that menu with image items appeared not only on selected images but on web site's background image. I believe that in previous version of Firefox this menu did not appeared on background images. Moreover I saved a web page and opened it. Link to this background image could find on style.css file only. I checked list of files for saved web page and these images are not exist. Therefore if this web site will be shutdown I would not be able to open saved page properly. It is interested that when I click on saved web page items of this menu appeared. When I select background image to try to open in next Tab I get a message that this file is not exists off-line. Yes, file is not exists but but Firefox saved link to background image not an image itself.
