Hello. I'm a long-time Firefox user but this is the first time I have posted here.

I just changed my OS (I'm now on MX Linux 19) and I assume the version of Firefox I now have (91.0 64 bit) is newer than the one I was using. (I was on ubuntu 16.04)

The appearance has changed in a way that has reduced accessibility for me. When the active tab is the first or last tab, I get confused and think that the active tab is actually the adjacent one. It is only a few seconds of confusion but it keeps throwing me off.

I've realised why this is. The active tab is now a floating box. It is not attached in any way to the area below. All the other tabs *do* look like they are connected to the area below but they do not have any visible borders, except for the tab next to the active tab.

I tried a few different themes and I found that some that break this new convention (yay!) but the text/background contrast was lower and made reading difficult. (I can read black text on white background easily but find many other colour combinations difficult.)

I'm now using a theme that sticks with the new convention but makes the active tab yellow while other tabs are mid blue, which makes the active tab very obvious. I can read the text fairly well but it's not as good as black on white for me: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-GB/firefox/addon/high-contrast-color/

I read in a stack-exchange question that installing the Firefox Color extension would allow me to have more control over appearance. Unfortunately, I don't seem to be able to change just one thing, e.g. just change the colour of the active tab in the system theme. Instead, as soon as I change one thing, Firefox Color changes the colours of everything else that it has control over.

Is there a way to make the active tab more prominent without taking on a completely new colour scheme and without having to do any coding?

Thanks for any help.

Again WTF Firefox Developers. Why can't you leave well enough alone. This design is very hard for seniors. Please tell me how to get my tabs back to individual rounded tabs instead of one long tab. WTH. Sorry, I'm so angry right now because my husband is having sciatic issues and I have to deal w/this sh*t. Please someone tell me how to fix this 91.0 hot mess.

Thank you

It's so frustrating that the keyboard shortcut for closing tabs is right beside the one to quit Firefox. I've lost countless hours because of this, and it's so easy to accidentally do. Is there a way to keep this from happening? A simple "Are you sure" confirmation dialog would be great, or I really like the Chrome "hold command-Q" to exit feature. This seemingly simple function is proving extremely difficult to accomplish.

Yes, I'm aware of session restore, but (1) It does not preserve my window arrangement. I use multiple desktops for various tasks, and they each have related browser windows. (2) I need to see webpages exactly as they were when I opened them. Sessions expire, dynamic pages are refreshed, content is removed etc. That is all lost.

I do not want to disable session restore completely. It can still be useful. But, I do not want to trigger session restore automatically every time. Manual activation is ideal.

regarding: "browser.tabs.warnOnClose" I do not want a warning for closing multiple tabs. I often have many windows open and that warning gets annoying. It also doesn't prevent me from accidentally quitting when I only have one tab open.

I tried setting browser.warnOnQuit to true, but it's ignored.

I simply want a confirmation when I use the keyboard shortcut to QUIT. That's it. No side effects. Can Firefox do this?

So, I just got the new firefox update, v91 I think? and the tabs are absolutely driving me insane. I can't quite find how to fix it.

Last time, I had the proton tabs disabled and that was pretty much all I needed to fix the issue. But right now I've got two problems: 1. I really dislike the floating look to them, is there any way to again block the proton update/feel etc? 2. This is the one that's truly got me bananas: the volume icon that one usually got in the tab by default when sound was being reproduced... now only shows when the cursor hovers above it, otherwise it disappears. Is there any way to bring this function back?

Please, please help.

I adore Firefox, have been using it pretty much since 2004 or thereabouts, and would not change it... but sometimes these changes drive me to tears. I'd love it if there was a manual or something that would teach one how to change these things without having to bother anyone else :(

Thank you guys!!

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!

Once again, Firefox has gone and turned the Tabs into a Hot Mess of a Tab Bar instead of "Tabs" . I would like my Tabs to be individual Tabs, not one long tab with white wings hanging out (( guess that's supposed to make it look like a "Tab" ). I just got my Home Page to my liking and User Friendly to ME and they go and "EFF" it up AGAIN!!!!

If anyone can assist me in getting my TABS back to Normal and not looking like one big long bar, I would appreciate the help. Prior to this update, they resembled Chrome tabs, Individually divided and rounded corners....Like a TAB!!! Oh and now the Tab BAR is located above the Address Bar without updated instructions on how to move it back above the Tool Bar, where it belongs, on my Home Page. Please give us OPTIONS!

Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Please Please Please Stop messing with my tabs. I now have a great big bar tab and I can barely see the info on the tabs. WTF Firefox? I was able to do a workaround in FF 89, but that doesn't work in the update of 91

Please, Please, Please give me a workaround to get back to old fashioned tabs, with separations between them and a black background so I can read the printing.

So, the tabs changed a while back. I went and used the workaround. The workaround is now Dead. Here are my thoughts on the current design (which, for full clearance, I find useless and abhorrent)

1. Tab separation - not clear. There is no clear way to differentiate tabs from each other without hovering over them. I preferred the old look for this. 2. Tab size - Too tall. I don't need that many pixels of useless empty space. I preferred the old look for this. 3. Pinned tab size - Too much empty space. They now take more space than they used to. I had them pinned for a reason, and may now have to unpin some. Preferred old design for this. 4. Rounded corners - I will probably get used to this, but I do not like it. Again, preferred the old design for this. 5. Tab "scrolling speed" - Too fast/too many tabs at one. Two/three was enough for me. I will probably get used to this, but still prefer old design. 6. Can't close a tab without selecting it - While sometimes I accidentally closed a tab, it was less of a problem than being unable to close a tab without navigating to it. Unnecessary time sink.

Overall - old design is better. I've seen statements of "better tabs" or whatever, but those statements don't change the fact that workflow is slowed, and everything feels floaty and spacey.

'What am I asking for?' Very simple. Options. Allow users to choose their preference without difficult workarounds involving code and actually needing to know how to do complicated things like that. A lot of people like the old look. I doubt it to be impossible to offer those as selectable options. That way you, Firefox, can still offer the new tab look, but also please those who do not want it, are unable to use it, or whatever reason a user might have for reverting back to that old look.

Do not force users into a "new, sleek, modern" look. It may be "sleek", but it is nigh unusable to some.

I had so many problems with it, I went through downloading different "session save" add-ons, I know what solution you guys will give me, I've done most of the posts' instructions, this is more of a complaint post.

When Windows boots up and you had Firefox open before you shut down last time, it will open anew, automatically, with your previous session, but it's on the end of the list of things that launch on startup.

Forgetting you had it on and clicking the browser again, will open a new session with the home screen instead of the previous session, then when actual session Firefox launches it's a 50/50 whether it will be in home screen as well, or actually in your previous session. Now here is the fun part. If you close the new window with just the home tab, that will now become the latest session, so your previous one will be deleted.

How to get around that? Move your home tab into your session instead of closing the window, it works 100% of the time... But can we, not start a new session if you close the home screen, or if you close just 1 tab it doesn't count as a different session. I dunno, just throwing ideas out there.

Hope this reaches those with the same issue, or people in positions to fix the issue, if anyone wants to use session saving add-ons, I took fancy to Tab Session Manager and Easy Session Manager, though not perfect, I don't advise for over 150 tabs.

I'll try to be as active on this thread as I can be, thanks for reading through! :>

ALL of my Firefox tabs have disappeared. Is there any way to retrieve them?

Not sure how and when I lost my tabs. I had closed all my programs and shut down my computer, and when I turned it back on and clicked on Firefox, there were no tabs at all.

I forgot that I'm not supposed to shut down Firefox when that happens, but I panicked. When I restarted, still no tabs, of course.

My bookmarks are also gone.

I can see some of my recent history, but that's really no help.

This is a disaster. If I'm really out of luck, is there an add-on I can install that will save my tabs and bookmarks, in case this happens again?

TIA for any suggestions.

There are no more borders around the tabs except the active one. It is hard to click click fast to change to another tab - special with pinned tabs with some icons blured with the theme I love. Also the theme-icons got deactivated and there is now the lower bar empty without the tabs. They went up into a new bar higher added. How can I fix that with boardred tabs located downwards and the intuitiv easier clickable icons back?

Recently there was a change in the way bookmarks are displayed. If I go into Manage Bookmarks they are sorted in the order I want them to be shown, but the bookmarks offered to me appear to be random, or possibly most recently used. That is totally useless when I want to find a particular bookmark.

How do I get Firefox to display bookmarks in the order I have them in the Manage Bookmarks tab? Alternately is there a way I can get the manage bookmarks window to show up as a column on the left or right of my desktop? That would allow me to easily find a bookmark, and also to add a bookmark in the correct location to assist me in finding it later.

Firefox over the past couple years has proven inconsistent. For days or weeks it will display the open tabs I intentionally left open, then without warning, without asking me, without my permission it closes them and provides no means of restoring them. As a result, I have discontinued all use of Firefox because the problem has been known for years yet continues.

So, if I want to open a tab that exists in my current open Firefox to a new window, or a new private window(Good for accessing an alt account without logging out a main account), I have to right-click the taskbar icon for it, or the desktop icon, firefox's settings menu, or a keypress; navigate to the page, and log in.

It would be super convenient to send a tab to a new window or private window from right-clicking the desired tab, and selecting an option. Currently, (90.0..1), there is just a send to container option, which doesn't exactly accomplish what I am looking for.

This is purely QoL, but it would speed things up quite a bit.
