Is there some way to reduce the white space / padding between bookmark and menu items in the new Proton interface introduced in Firefox 89? I don't have a touchscreen and all the extra white space just means more scrolling to navigate through my bookmarks.

The AskVG site has a 02-June-2021 article at https://www.askvg.com/tip-restore-old-classic-theme-and-ui-in-firefox-89-and-later-versions/ that explains how to disable all the new Proton interface changes in about:config, but is there one specific hidden preference / flag (e.g., browser.proton.toolbar.version) mentioned in that article that controls the spacing between bookmarks and menu items?

There is a also a companion article on AskVG titled https://www.askvg.com/tip-restore-compact-mode-density-option-in-firefox-customize-window/ with instructions on how to change two Density options (browser.compactmode.show and browser.uidensity) in about:config, but I have no idea if changing my density setting to "Compact" would actually decrease white space (padding) between bookmark and menu items.

Since the most recent update to 89.0 opening pdfs in the browser, some websites and all log-in areas are using a super bold, unreadable font. PDFs also print out with this font. I tried changing the font manually, and both checking and unchecking the "Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of your selections above" box, but it doesn't help. I have no plugins installled This is the Facebook log in for example. The font is so poor you can't tell the 'i' from a lower case 'l'. The pdf sample is from opening it in the browser. If I download it instead, it opens in a normal, readable font. How can I fix this?

After the update to 89.0 the Shortcuts have taken an 'visual upgrade' that makes all the images chosen for them half as small as they need to be because they need to have a 'cute little grey border' almost as big as the image between it and the corners of the square.

I have twenty four shortcuts, that I differentiate at a glance through the images without having to stop to read the text on each one and this stupid change is really roasting my mellows, I have taken a look and haven't found any option to revert it to the previous look, anyone knows any way to do it or do I have to install the previous firefox update and stop updating and give up security updates to save myself from this stupid change?

I recently updated Mozilla to v 80.0 (64 bit) I have Mozilla set so that it does not search from the address bar, and I use the optional search bar.

When I create a new tab the default page contains a google search box, as per the attached screen shot. But if I type in that search box, the search term appears in the address bar, and then Mozilla tells me the address doesn't look right.

Why is the search term automatically entered in the address bar? Since I have the seaparate search bar my search term should appear there.

BTW I hate searching from the address bar. If I want to search I type it in the search box, or in the search box in new tab. Separating the search and address bars is one of my favorite features of Mozilla vs the other browsers.

When trying to access the Google Developer Profile webpage on Firefox desktop, I encounter many errors. I can't sign in a lot of the times, sometimes I kind of get in but it says my profile isn't finished even though it is. I ended up creating it with MS Edge and accessing it that way after I had done a couple of the Kotlin training exercises to make sure my progress was getting saved. Many other times I get a 404 message; the errors I get vary a bit.

I have even tried starting Firefox in safe mode just to disable all extensions and add-ons, still with no luck.

It is only with Firefox Desktop that I am having this issue. When I use my Android device and bring it up on Firefox mobile, I don't have any of these issues. I see my profile and badges just fine.

Before several updates in the last year when you added a bookmark, you could choose what folder you wanted to add the bookmark.

Now when you add a bookmark it places the tab in the last bookmark selected. Once this is done then you have to select the bookmark and do a edit. At this point you can choose where you would like to store the book mark.

Is this a bug or was this intentional on the part of Mozilla? I find this is an unnecessary step and very annoying.

How can we remove the "New Tab" option when right clicking a tab? I find this feature absolutely useless as there's already and "+" tab button to create a new tab. I used to be able to reload tabs easily and quickly by Right-Click tab, Left-Click and the Reload option was selected. NOW, I have to move the mouse down to the Reload option, or press the "R" key on the keyboard. Simple things, yes, but something that is easily annoying if it's added when it's not needed and having to change the way we use the browser. What would of been nicer is that "Pinned" tabs would always be pinned, regardless if that window was the last to be closed or not.

Hello,

I just upgraded to Firefox 87 and noticed that I wasn't able to go back to the previous webpage by clicking on the backspace button like what I have done in the past if I'm not using a mouse on my laptop and had to click on the back button in the toolbar with the trackpad. I'm not too sure of why that happened with the upgrade and was a little surprised about that. Hope I can be able to get around this in some way if one of you know anything about this. Thanks.

Hello,

after an update up to Firefox 89.0 (64bit) on my elementaryOS 5.1.7 (based on Ubuntu 18.04) I've got a grey-colored rectangle in the upper part of my window that overlays all elements of websites (cf. attached screenshot), however I still could pass via hyperlinks if there are any under the rectangle. It is very light grey in light mode and dark grey in dark mode.

I've tried following steps according to possible solutions found in the Internet : - launch Firefox in safe mode (the rectangle disappears) - make sure the default theme is used - turn on/off the hardware acceleration - update or disable and delete all add-ons and plug-ins (rectangle still present in normal mode) - delete and reinstall Firefox with wiping all its files on the local machine (including /home/user/.mozilla and /etc/firefox* folders) - delete again and install the flatpak version


Nothing of the above helps except of the safe mode. As I have tried already to delete add-ons and plug-ins, what else can I disable to try to solve the issue in normal mode ?

I would appreciate your help as this is the only browser that I (want to) use on a daily basis. Thanks in advance!

I always used the original Firefox search as my home page; one simple little panel in the middle of the page with a quick and easy search feature. I loved it. The latest version of Firefox has ruined it. Now we are forced to search from the address bar. I hate, loathe, and despise doing a search from the address bar. It is an A-1 nightmare. After you type one letter, it stops registering what you type and throws up a ridiculously long list of the web pages you've visited. Type another letter, and you have to go through this mess again. It makes for an absurdly slow search and never actually gets you to what you're searching for. I wound up with search results that weren't even related to each other much less related to what I was searching for. After one day of use, I'm so frustrated with this feature that I'm opening Google to do the search.

How do we reset this new version of Firefox to only search from the Firefox homepage search box and not go anywhere near that address bar? Or do I have to uninstall the latest update to get Firefox to function properly again? Even if it's an add-on that forces the search to where it belongs...anything!

Since a few days, when I visit Google Maps, after completely loading the page (roads and buildings shown for a brief moment) the map becomes wholly black with just captions still readable.

Doing the following didn't fix: Restart Firefox. Update Nvidia Drivers (updated yesterday to 466.11, didn't resolve). Disable every add-on and setting default theme. Disable Hardware Acceleration from settings.

THIS temporarily fixed: Entering Firefox Troubleshoot mode.

So I assume the problem is in advanced settings. There are TONS of settings there. Any ideas? I 'd rather not go through a Firefox Refresh losing all site permissions/fine tuning for cookie settings/blocked content for every site made in years. I'm on Firefox 88, Windows 10 64bit ver. 2004, GeForce 950M, Core i7-4720HQ, 16GB RAM.


I put "again" in the title since another question about this is marked as solved for Firefox 68/69. Needless to say, I tried everything from that discussion (such as switching gfx.webrender.all), to no avail for the present issue.
