I woke up this morning to find that firefox updated without my permission. this annoys me. What annoys me the most, however, is not having to re-customize every thing on the toolbar, but the fact that there is NO REFRESH BUTTON. I liked having a refresh button. it was very handy. I liked having it to the left of my address bar. Why can I no longer have a refresh button to the left of the address bar? the only one I can seem to find in imbedded in a very awkward and inconvenient place inside the address bar. I feel this is unacceptable. When looking at the page made to advertize firefox, it stats that it was "Made with a mission to put you first." this is not putting me first. this is taking control away from me and making the interface that much less intuitive. I would like to have my refresh button back. I do not want to have to go through antoher workaround like downloading a classic theme and screwing with that. I just want the refresh button. now, where is the refresh button and how can I place it where I want it to go? it's a simple question, yet I have not found any answer for it anywhere on this site.

About 3-4 hours ago I upgraded to Firefox 30. I have lost the look and functionality that I prefer. I have spent several hours trying to get it back, but nothing I have tried has fixed it and several things have made it worse. I think this is just not worth it. I want to roll back to ffx 29. I understand the warnings, but I don't want to switch to a different browser any more than I want to switch to ffx 30. On Mozilla's help pages, there is a link to a page of folders, but it is not clear how to downgrade to ffx29.

With firefox quantum the usual curvy tabs are now lame and rectangular, like microsoft edge, which is almost as square as being square. Is there a way to return to that layout, with the curvy tabs and the refresh button inside the address bar, or will I have to reinstall an earlier version of firefox? Would a theme be able to change that, (which I realize wouldn't have been created yet), or would the "firefox won't support complete themes after v57" thing stop that from happening, since it messes with the tab shape? Since firefox is open-source, if I wanted to learn how to make a theme including the curvy tabs, would I be able to get code to salvage from mozilla? Also, I can't get the refresh button back inside the address bar. File image gives example of preferred tab curve and refresh button location.

I know this seems like a minor thing, but thanks for help.

Can someone offer a legitimate reason why someone cannot figure out how to place a "clearly visible" ICON that you can click to exit full screen mode.

It wouldn't even have to that friggin big, would it.

Where would it be located at. How about right near the point where you clicked to enter full screen mode.

I'd rather get frustrated hunting for it.

And restarting Firefox doesn't friggin help, does it.

Yeh, I found it, hence the post.

The new update released hours ago has introduced problems that Google Chrome had, which is the very first reason in the first place that I left Chrome to get Firefox.

The menus have been made larger, with more clutter. This is especially apparent in every instance of bookmarks. The text and icons and space between the bookmarks have all been increased in size, making it more annoying and less clean to use, as well as looking unpleasant. No settings will allow me to zoom out on the menus or tabs or bookmarks. The tabs and the prompts have also been redesigned along with menus and it looks awful. I left Chrome to avoid the style and it has unfortunately followed me to Firefox.

Everything about this update has made the browser worse and more akin to Chrome, which I heavily dislike. I understand this is nitpicking and doesn't matter much. I still would like the old version back. Is there a way I can download the old version of Firefox anywhere? Heavy thanks to whoever reads and responds.

Hi

Running Firefox 71.0 (64 bit)

Well seems Firefox has been messing this up again.

Anyone have the new work around solution to get my tabs back on the bottom again. They were fine this morning then shut down and went out to lunch and when I came back they were back on the top again after months of being where I wanted them below my bookmark bar.

Thoughts on this?

Thanks Dave

It is absolute silly to have some buttons on one side of the address bar and some on the other. It seem some dumb ass coder decided that docking the reload button to the address bar was a great idea.

I would like at least consider switching away from Google Chrome but one of the features missing is a session manager.

In Chrome, I have one window open with my personal accounts logged in and another window in a separate profile (no conflicting cookies, etc.) with my work accounts. I'm not about to start making special shortcuts to send arguments when opening FireFox to force the browser to open with a certain profile. Is there any progress down the pipeline to add this feature with some sort of GUI manager? (It seems like this would have done the trick, but it's incompatible and Experimental https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/profileswitcher/ with the latest update).

I'm glad you guys made an update where the browser is faster on many websites but missing features like this won't bring back people like me to your browser yet. I would like to consider switching, but I'm still surprised this has not been added.

The google search bar on top of my firefox browser is not working.

Everytime I try to search something using that google bar, it just keeps on telling me with "connecting". And nothing happens.

But when I try with a different search engine like Yahoo!, it works fine.

Closing the notification works for as long a refresh, which means I'd be forever closing the notification, thus I want to disable the notification in about:config but what exactly do I need to disable?

So my Firefox Developer edition just got updated to the version 74.0b2 and I got this brand new address/search bar. One of the things that it used to have before it had been updated was a simple arrow-down button that, when clicked, showed the most visited sites. Now, after the update, this button is gone (pic related). This makes my experience with Firefox *extremely* worse, because now I don't have a quick access to open one of my most visited sites inside the current tab without starting typing their addresses. Is there any option to bring that feature back? Is removal of this button an already-made design choice for Firefox that will stay with us for the next versions?

The context-sensitive Firefox menu that appears when I right click on a link appears exactly over the context-sensitive application menus that come up in Yahoo, Box, and other sites, so the Firefox menu blocks me from seeing or clicking on the Yahoo or Box menu options. Is there a way to prevent the Firefox menu from appearing on top when another menu is active? or a way to disable the Firefox menu when on certain web sites? Even having the Firefox menu appear in a different location (to the left, for example, instead of to the right), would enable me to see and access the website's application menu.

Is there another way to fix this so it's always active, or do I need to find another browser in the meantime until Firefox gets their stuffs together?
