Update 89.0 changed the browser theme to something I don't like, too pale and pastel. Options to change back to what I had aren't available. The options presented are now uglier than this sick looking theme.

How do I undo 89.0 update? Pretty much looks like (from release notes on another post) 89.0 has nothing at all to do with security and it's just someone at Firefox wanting to change things just for the sake of changing things.

I hope Firefox isn't going to start doing silly things like moving the first floor to the second floor and the second floor to the first floor just because some administrator feels like it.

How do I disable the ANNOYING message box I get every time I want to send a message to the trash folder. Thunderbird keeps asking me if I want the message deleted to save disk space. This just started in the past week. I want my deleted messages to go to the trash folder and I will manage that folder. I can't seem to find anything in settings that lets me disable this option.

I've used Firefox for years, and this is, by far, the worst update to date......

the newly upgraded version of Firefox 89 is horrendous!!! How did you manage to get it approved for "universal design" to make it "disability friendly"? I find it visually unfriendly, it does not allow for the level of adaptation some of us might need to make it more visually friendly and easier to navigate

please provide instructions for those of us who prefer to go back to version 88! or make additional changes to correct version 89 to make it more user-friendly like version 88 was......please!!!!

(and lesson learned, I will stop doing "upgrade/update available" if it's going to result in the horrifically unfriendly version I'm having to deal with right now )(or else you all are really trying to push people to Chrome and/or Edge, which I assure you, is not my preference)

please fix asap!!!

Win 7 Home Premium Firefox Version 101.0.1

'Privacy & Security'->'Cookies and Site Data', 'Clear Data.'

When 'Clear Now,' Cached Web Content; is clicked, it does not zero out. (It used to clear completely).

The browser webpage has been refreshed, the browser closed and reopened, and the computer restarted but the cache does not reset.

This issue started on the morning (Pacific time) of June 26-Is this a known glitch or am I missing a detail?

Today I updated my Firefox Developer Edition to version 89.0b2 and now I just can not look at this browser anymore, "Inspired new tab design" is taking too much space and now became largest and at the same time least information-dense panel in my entire desktop! I searched around the web for a bit in hopes that I will find a theme or an add-on that will revert this particular change but no luck. I really want to revert to old UI look (at least tabs bar), there should be default theme or option to get back to old style. After some investigation I found userChrome.css but don't really want to install it (maybe this is actually the way of doing this kind of styling). Please help me revert UI design to old one.

My issue is the lack of a heads-up from Mozilla Thunderbird about the downside to upgrading (I use the term loosely) from 68 to 78. Where was the warning that the add-ons I was using would not work (and now, months later that there are STILL NO UPDATES to v78-compatible add-ons). I was not aware that there were profile and database changes that would occur making for problems for lots of users.

The forum is full of comments about these points so I'm not going to belabor with further feedback but I would like to emphasize that Thunderbird may very well have signed it's own obsolesence warrant for failing to take its customers base real needs into account. Fortunately for me a roll-back to 68 was easy since I had just done a full image backup.

I'm not really looking for "help" or a solution to a particular problem. But, respectfully, WTH were you thinking?

I hate new firefox 89 looks. I can tolerate buttons. I can even tolerate ugly frameless tabs. But I will not tolerate bookmarks that are twice as fat as before. This is waste of space. Before I was able to see all my bookmarks from bookmark menu on screen. Now they are superfat and I have to scroll constantly in every sub-folder. Am I supposed to buy 4k screen now just because devs decided to make everything big like in touch-screen computers, even for mouse and keyboard users? Why is there no compact view anymore, only normal and superfat touch mode?

Is there any easy way, preference or something to restore old thin look? I googled topic and found some info about css styles but it includes too much of interfering with browser for me to do it. I want easy and permanent solution.

Last time Firefox updated, I managed to find information online about moving the website tabs so they were below the bookmarks instead of at the top of the screen. It was a huge pain-in-the-butt to do.

After a recent re-install, the tabs have moved themselves back to the top of the screen and nothing I do seems to be able to move them back below the bookmarks.

Is there a way I can move the tabs that doesn't involve spending hours hunting through posts on the web, changing hidden Firefox settings, and recoding .css files?

If not, why do you not give the option to move the tabs wherever the user wants? Especially when it makes far more sense to have the website tabs directly above the website being viewed, at least in my opinion?

I'm currently using Firefox 85.0.2 (64-bit).

Hi, I have been on Thunderbird for years and have always fixed my own problems but the pop3 email on my laptop stopped receiving emails 10 days ago. Asked my provider Fasthosts but they can't fix it, read the advice but can't work out what is wrong. I haven't changed any server settings - they are correct according to Fasthosts anyway. My online Outlook email version works fine and I can send emails from my laptop but it keeps saying connection to server timed out. Any ideas please, and I am not technical so it needs to be the very simple version. Thanks.

After today's update to version 98 Firefox keeps saving files to the Downloads folder when I don't want it to, I just want to open them, but not keep them, with this new behaviour the Downloads folder keeps filing up with useless clutter.

For example, before the update, when I downloaded a .zip file, a pop-up would show up asking if I wanted to save the file or open it with an application. If I chose to save it it would be saved to the Downloads folder, and if I chose to open it nothing would be saved to the Downloads folder.

After the update, when I download a .zip file, Firefox always saves the file to the Downloads folder, even if I choose to open it.

Can you please tell me if there is a way to make Firefox behave like in the previous version?

I know I am not the first person to complain about this. The spacing/padding between menu items, in particular the Bookmark menu is just ridiculously large. It got even bigger in 92.0!

I rely on Bookmarks heavily and use hundreds. I guess this was done for touch screens? The main interface is still currently the mouse for computers.

I see the only current fix is a using a stylesheet and it seems a bit involved. I have to give it a try. I am pleading with the designers, please give us the option to use compact padding once again. I am not sure why this is being forced on us. I really like Firefox, please don't make me look for another option. Thanks!

Hi

PUT THE DAMN TABS !!!!!BELOW!!!! the address bar already!!

People have been begging you to do this for ******* years!!!

Stop being such a**holes and make it like this BY DEFAULT FOREVER! And add a simple option in the setting that always allows the user to put the tabs above or below....but I know most people want this always BELOW!!!

Fix this issue PLEASE it pisses soooo many people off having the tabs above the address bar. ...Also when I double click on the empty space beside the tabs it just shrink the open window.....change this so double clicking on the empty area OPENS A NEW TAB...
