I do NOT appreciate that Mozilla now forces me to use the FireFox home page (or else literally nothing - a blank page) for my new tabs. I want to use the same custom page I have set up as my home page, but since the last update, that page only shows in a new window, not on new tabs. Is there a workaround for this? I use multiple tabs within the same window heavily, and having FireFox abruptly override a customization I have already set up and been using for years, that works best for me, is seriously pissing me off. I know there is a plugin to se new tabs, but I already have several plugins and would prefer not to add more.

Dear Support Team, since the update before the last it is no longer possible to jump back within a page or to a former page with the backspace key. This is, at least to me, very annoying. Aspecially when i am using my laptop. Personally i prefer using short cuts rather than the mouse or touchpad. Somehow i suppose that function was disabled through the updates. Would you please look in to this subject and enable that function again? I´d appreciate it very much.

Kind regards, Ilona aka Nellifer5

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!

Hi, I am still trying to get my mother the covid vaccine. Now the problem is that reCAPTCHA does't work in firefox, internet explorer 11, or aol shield. In firefox it is not displaying correctly to even use, aol shield uses the firefox browser so it displayed the same I believe, can't remember now that I am typing, In Internet Explorer it showed the Box with the checkbox and the string "I am not a robot" but when checked the graphic load circle ran and it came back with the reCAPTCHA didn't make a connection and to check my connection, any idea on how to get this working. Thanks Steve

FFox v92 - Menu Spacing - Bug? (No, not the usual question)

FFox 92 update today. Menu spacing went to double. No shock there. Found the CSS code below for UserChrome.css and set it up.

EX. menupopup > menuitem, menupopup > menu {

 padding-block: 4px !important;

}

root {
 --arrowpanel -menuitem -padding: 4px 8px !important;

}

Here's the issue: I want it tighter than 4px. So, I set it down to 2px... eventually dropping it to all 0px settings.

EX: menupopup > menuitem, menupopup > menu {

 padding-block: 0px !important;

}

root {
 --arrowpanel -menuitem -padding: 0px 0px !important;

}

But, it doesn't get any smaller than the above 4/8px set up. Bug? Perhaps there's another CSS setting to be tweaked for V 92? I do not have any other CSS for these items elsewhere in my UserChrome file.

hi =)

So what hapened?

Now there is a huge white bar up top with my open tabs.

I prefer it how it was in v88

How do I get it to look like it was before the update?

Thanks)

(it really is terrible now, and while i always promoted FF to whoever, I think this unwanted change makes me want to look elsewhere, sadly)

3-26-21: I just upgraded to the latest version of Firefox and NONE of my bookmarks are available. I've tried all the tips I've found and nothing works. I tried to Restore Bookmarks and get the error: Unable to process the backup file. This is a terrible version of Firefox. I need my Bookmarks. Where did they go?? How do I get them back? I am not a computer expert. I am a user of your product. I should not have to jump through hoops just to get my browser set up the way I had it before. Right now it is a big mess. I've used Firefox for years when other browsers are available. I will dump Firefox if I have to but I would prefer to solve this problem.

For the Send websites a "Do Not Track" signal that you don't want to be tracked, one of the options is "Only when Firefox is set to block known trackers".

How do I set Firefox to block known trackers? How do I set Firefox to not block known trackers?

Is having Enhanced Tracking Protection ON the same thing as having Firefox set to block known trackers? So if I turn OFF Enhanced Tracking Protection, Firefox will no longer be set to block known trackers?
