So i have noticed a sudden changed in firefox when i open it and been landed over to my homepage instead of where i left before which usually as "about:newtab" page and in setting there is only option to use firefox default or blank. i would rather preffered to have my home button set with my custom url, as well keeping the option to land on newtab page when ever i start my browser. which was intended as before but not since last update. now there is no option to set newtab page as also a custom url which can be any thing but forced to use the default layout by firefox. that proceed to open a homepage every time when i launch firefox.

When viewing extensions in the overflow menu, items become cutoff. Sometimes a scrollbar will be displayed, allowing you to view the rest. At other times, you are not able to navigate to the other information at all. I tried to use ctrl + (+ or -) to try and zoom out, but only the size was able to become bigger or smaller, not the scaling.

I was quite unhappy with the new Firefox Proton design, so I made a CSS file and copied the following code from a website. However, I don't know what to do to (1) slightly reduce the tab height, (2) get back tab borders for inactive tabs and (3) remove the small gaps between tabs. How exactly do I have to change the following code to do so (ideally, for convenience, please just complete the code accordingly)? Thanks in advance for any support!

/*** Tighten up drop-down/context/popup menu spacing (8 Sep 2021) ***/

menupopup:not(.in-menulist) > menuitem, menupopup:not(.in-menulist) > menu {

 padding-block: 2px !important; /* reduce to 3px, 2px, 1px or 0px as needed */ 
 min-height: unset !important; /* v92.0 - for padding below 4px */

}

I started using a MacBook Pro which has a bright touch bar where the function keys would usually be on a keyboard, but I like to customize it by removing most of the icons because it don't really use them. For Safari I went to View > Customize Touch Bar, but for Firefox I cannot seem to find that option in the menu bar. Is there any way to customize the touch bar for Firefox as well? Thank you.

Hello,

I don't know why this happened, but my laptop no longer shows a much used add-on, Group Speed Dial. Thankfully, my desktop still has it and all my useful bookmarks. I just created a Firefox profile from my desktop. Can I somehow transfer my Group Speed Dial settings to my laptop?

I realize this is probably a very dumb question. I'm 65+ plus years old.

I had the Firefox menubar/tabs set to be the same as my Win 10 system's theme color (Settings > Personalization > Colors), the same as the color of the taskbar. When Firefox v. 92.0 self-installed on Sept 7, 2020, the menubar/tabs color reverted to Firefox's default, a dull gray.

System Theme in Add-ons Manager > Themes is still enabled.

How do I get Firefox to partake of the Windows system theme again?

This has happened before when Firefox updated, although it doesn't happen EVERY time. The last time it happened, I recall being able to find a simple about:config adjustment on Google (not on this site), but I can't find it now. (As I recall, it was an about:config item that didn't sound like it would affect the menubar color, but it did.)

I have another laptop on which I rushed to disable automatic updates, so Firefox on that laptop still shows the system color. Is there a file in the Profiles folder I could copy into the problem computer that would restore the theme color setting?

Thanks.

Doing a search for this change provides hundreds of topics and thousands of folks complaining about the added spaces between menu items and no real solution. I found one that entails making changes to the chrome file and proton, I tried this and it doesn't work for me and I shouldn't have to make changes to files in the first place. If anyone from the development team is listening, I know you had to satisfy those using touch screens, but how about making it easy for us to change the spacing a bit tighter. Many of us have lots of bookmarks and find we now have to scroll to find the ones at the bottom, then go to the top again to select "open in......". Could you add a simple toggle, "wide menu spacing or close menu spacing"? Anything that worked on version 89 or 90, does not work now. Please, this really is frustrating
