When they updated to 89, large spaces were created in between the bookmarked web sites when the window unfolds. So the bookmarks at the bottom don't fit in the window, and to get to the ones I can't see, I have to click the arrow at the bottom. But making it worse, is that if I do go to the bottom, the next time I open the bookmark tab, the list will open at the bottom (it doesn't revert to the top). So I'd have to scroll up to get to the ones at the top.

I list my bookmarks in the order they're in so I can get to the ones I go to most often as fast as possible. So they're at the top - I don't have to scroll far to get to them. I also use the "Other Bookmarks" tab since that's at the top. But sometimes that's hidden and I have to scroll up to get to access that as well.

Also, this update changed the size of the command windows - the copy/paste window, the "open in new tab" window, and the window to get the correct spelling of the word. They're so big, they run from the top of the screen to bottom, instead of a small square. So you'll have to scroll way up to get to the command or word you want.

I can't stand this.

There was a simple work-around. Changing the proton preferences to false. But they removed them with 90. I posted a message on these boards a few weeks ago asking for them not to be removed. Of course it didn't do any good.

There supposedly is a "fix" to this, but it has to do with CSS - whatever the heck that is and I'm not even going to attempt to figure it out. Fixing this should NOT be complicated at all (like the proton preferences). And besides, even that CSS thing won't bring everything back to what is was. So why bother?

More scrolling, bigger command windows, etc., are not that big of a deal, but that's not the point. Why can't they leave well enough alone? What part of "If it ain't broke, don't fix it," do they not understand? If I wanted a tedious way to access my bookmarks, I'd use Chrome!

I know it won't happen, but how can we get them to reset the bookmarks and command windows back to the way they were? Is that asking too much? Ask a silly question...

If their objective is to lose Firefox users, congratulations. It just might work.

After updating to 89.0 the appearance of FF is horrendous. that light coloring, change of tabs, and etc. I want to revert to the color schemes I have before. How do I do that? It is so ugly, I will seriously go back to Google Chrome if I cannot; and that is a huge statement coming from me.

Hello!

I used to be able to open a file (with a program) without it being saved. Ever since 98.0, the "open" option saves the file regardless. I even had to find a work around to get the "What should Firefox do with this file?" prompt.

Is this no longer possible?

Thanks.

My question: How do I disable "Download firefox update" nag?

More importantly; how do I stop your software -- running on MY computer -- from sending who knows what private information to your servers when it "checks for updates"?

But mostly, how did your once 32% market share fall to https://www.oberlo.com/statistics/browser-market-share|3%?

Maybe, because you stopped listening to your users and decided that "YOU KNOW BEST"!

The once champion of User rights now imposes itself on those few fools that continue to use it. You have to "sign up" to even ask a question. And woe betide that you want to enjoy a stable browser that doesn't force you to accept changes that break websites you rely upon, because some faceless, nameless do-gooder developer in Wisconsin decided ...

Engage me. I dare you to engage me. I won't swear at you. Nor accuse you *as an individual* of anything; but I will debunk your (the Mozilla collective) idea that "You know best".

Whoever thought Firefox 89 was a good idea is not someone with whom I agree. 89 is awful - I disregarded the update notice for days but then got sick of the reminder. BAD idea on my part. Is there any way to get rid of the topmost "tab" - they ARE NOT tabs - bar? I really liked the previous tabs that LOOKED LIKE TABS and DID NOT TAKE UP MORE ROOM on the page. Can I go back to the previous version? This one is really bad. Like, REALLY bad. Firefox "developers" need to give an option to check out the new update before committing to it.

just updated to version 89 the home button on the home page has disappeared.

Also can now only make a web search using the address bar or the search box added in the tool bar. However I have always had a web search box (Google) on my home page and typed my search directly into that. The box is still there and I can put my cursor into the box but as soon as I start to type the cursor moves up to the address bar.

I cannot see the point of having the web search option in the (Home) settings because even though I have it enabled in the settings and can put the cursor in the web search box on the home page, I cannot actually type in the web search box.

Any help would with these two issues would be appreciated.
