The latest version adds space between bookmarks making my Bookmark Toolbar overflow down the right side way too large. Is there someway to make Bookmarks space like before?

Why does Firefox seem to suddenly hate www.aa.com. When I try to log into the website I get a "Sorry working on our website - please start over" notice. I have tried deleting browsing history and I turned off the ad blocker. Any other suggestions. It works fine on MS Edge.

Since we can now give feedback on mozilla.crowdicity.com , I'm still confused how they deal with "ideas". I've submited my idea almost 3 weeks ago, it still says "Your idea is currently awaiting moderator review. Once approved, it will be visible to all users" and is still hidden. Other ideas I see that have been submitted at the same time as mine are already reviewed and published. So the only thought that comes to mind is that some ideas are just ignored on purpose without any result or feedback. Is there any way to contact moderators of that platform? Has anyone resolved such problems with their "ideas" and how?

The "xulstore" window resizing problem

Since some time, Firefox (currently 89.0) on Windows 10 automatically reduces the window size from "fullscreen" to "maximized" when re-opening it from another program. So I have to wait until the window size reduction is complete before having to re-enlarge it again (which is quite annoying)

After a short web search, it turned out that this window size reduction is caused by the "xulstore.json" file in the profile folder and several other users are also reporting this issue. However, none of them in the forums I visited knew a permanent solution. I unsuccessfully tried the following:

  • When I delete "xulstore.json", the window size reduction problem goes away only to re-appear after a few re-openings of Firefox (as the xulstore file is re-established then).
  • Editing the xulstore file did not work, as Firefox overwrites it.
  • Denying Firefox writing permission (via Windows) also doesn't work, as Firefox creates a temporary copy of the xulstore file which again causes the resizing problem.
  • Denying access to this temporary copy does not work either.

It seems like Firefox does everything possible just to keep the resizing problem persisting. Is there any permanent solution (different from the failed solution attempts above)? Or even better: could you remove the automatic resizing in a coming version update of Firefox? It seems like I am not the only one who would be grateful about this.

Cursor jumps to toolbar address window instead of staying on the Firefox home page search bar. I prefer to use the search bar, without seeing all the urls show up in a list that changes as I type. This change occurred just a few days ago, apparently when Firefox updated. I have selected Google as the preferred search engine. (there are many other unwanted changes, but this one is the most challenging to deal with)

Yes, you read it right. I want to submit a feedback about the Firefox browser and it looks like it is not possible.

When I go to the menu Help -> Submit Feedback option, it redirects me ti this site https://mozilla.crowdicity.com/ where you cannot submit any feedback, you can only submit ideas.

Hi!

  1. FF removed the RSS button to discover feeds. Which sucks.
  2. But it sucks even more that the feature to subscribe to feeds via external services was also removed.
  3. I also can't view feeds, even if I find one manually.

New, I saw solutions to the first one, but there of little to no use on their own. Downloading text files with feed items in xml format is pretty useless. I want to be able to view a feed and subscribe to it.

I did a refresh yesterday after Firefox had been so slow and now I have other major issues! the letters are not uniform or the coloring on letters are dark and light. I have had this problem in the past and was told how to fix it but that is not working. Told to go to General/Performance/Use hardware acceleration, remove check mark which I have done twice and it didn't help, everything still the same so it makes it hard to read when each individual letter has a dark and light side, r/l or top/bottom! This has been a problem for a long time, especially after I refresh! Two other MAJOR problems though, there is no "HOME" button anymore, and my bookmarks, and bookmark toolbar/menu that I had on the left side of the screen is GONE! Both of those are the worst, and I can find nothing to restore either of them!!!!!! I've used FIREFOX for years, but I get tired of having to figure out how to use it all over again when it slows down or has problems! HELP!

I have very recently upgraded to Version 89.0 (Windows 10) and I can't help but wonder why some key characteristics have been changed for the worse. The display format for the Bookmarks list is now spaced so large that my Bookmarks no longer fit on a single screen, and I can find no adjustment available to users. Also, the new tab screen no longer shows the image of the page, making the display less useful. What was broken in these features that Mozilla found a need to "fix" them? Is there anything a user can do to "undo" these changes?

The CSS element, below, is not rendered properly in the current version of FireFox for Windows. I first noticed it with the introduction of FF 89.0.

If a web page with this element is scaled, the image contained within the element does not scale. This element renders properly in other browsers (Edge, Chrome, Samsung, etc.), and the current Firefox for Android. There may be other CSS elements that use some component of this that also will not render properly, but I didn't test for them.


.pixHolder a { position: relative; display: block; background: transparent url(xxxxxx.gif) no-repeat 0 0; /* image does not scale */ border-style: hidden; height: 100px; /* size not relevant */ margin-left: 20px; z-index: 20; }
