A few months ago Firefox decided to double space all the items in menus. Reading through the forums many people didn't like this because of the amount of space that the menus now take up. Fortunately there was a work around, by setting 'browser.proton.contextmenus.enabled to false they returned to normal

This morning Firefox my got upgraded and the double spacing problem is back again. However there appears to be a bug with the setting and the menus won't return to normal. I'm now stuck with stupidly large menus that won't fit on the screen and lots of painful scrolling.

Does anybody have an alternative workaround until this is fixed?

I have my instances running set to 2. BECAUSE I WANT TO. Please don't try to explain why such and such is better. I am good.

Yet no matter what I tell Firefox, I may have up to 10 instance running with only one window open. Yes, I have the current process limit set to 2. I have the recommended block empty. I have tried it with "use hardware acceleration when available" checked and unchecked. it doesn't matter, Firefox still runs numerous instances..

How do I control this? it is eating up 30% of my memory at times.

I'm on MacOS. Firefox v92.0. I use Firefox only with three sites I use regularly. I want to maximise screen real estate by getting rid of the address bar. Getting rid of tabs too would be great, because I can use option-cmd-arrow to tab through them. And I can close the window from the menu. I tried to follow this post: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1288181 I did everything in that post, but the custom userChrome.css is having no effect. It's mentioned there that you have to use "window.open(...)" but I don't know what that means. The full screen function on MacOS is no good. It messes with my ability to swiftly switch between apps. So I cannot use it.

This is what I have in my userChrome.css file:

  1. main-window[chromehidden*="toolbar"] #nav-bar {
 visibility: collapse;

}

/*** Tighten up drop-down/context/popup menu spacing (8 Sep 2021) ***/

menupopup:not(.in-menulist) > menuitem, menupopup:not(.in-menulist) > menu {

 padding-block: 4px !important; /* reduce to 3px, 2px, 1px or 0px as needed */
 min-height: unset !important; /* v92.0 - for padding below 4px */

}

root {
 --arrowpanel-menuitem-padding: 4px 8px !important;

}

Hello,

I would like Firefox to either remove private browsing altogether or password protect some of the addons that I would not like to be turned off in private mode. Currently there's this addon 'Block Site' and this keeps my browser very regulated for me or anyone who uses my computer. However the whole purpose of it vanishes when you have the setting 'Run in private mode' set to 'off'. So anyone can simply set this to off and you have the whole browser without the addon functioning.

Can I put a password to this setting? Or maybe lock it so nobody can modify it?

In Ubuntu 18.04, I bring up a new page, click in the search bar in the middle of the page. Then when I start typing it jumps to the address bar although I have already placed and preferred the search bar to the right. No! NO! NO!

I use Duck Duck Go but Google does the same.

It is bad enough that the upgrade was automatically loaded but on top of that, changing preferences including dumping my home page. Change privacy settings without asking ( to a lower level on top of that ).

Really POOR form.

Hello,

I don't know why this happened, but my laptop no longer shows a much used add-on, Group Speed Dial. Thankfully, my desktop still has it and all my useful bookmarks. I just created a Firefox profile from my desktop. Can I somehow transfer my Group Speed Dial settings to my laptop?

I realize this is probably a very dumb question. I'm 65+ plus years old.

I had the Firefox menubar/tabs set to be the same as my Win 10 system's theme color (Settings > Personalization > Colors), the same as the color of the taskbar. When Firefox v. 92.0 self-installed on Sept 7, 2020, the menubar/tabs color reverted to Firefox's default, a dull gray.

System Theme in Add-ons Manager > Themes is still enabled.

How do I get Firefox to partake of the Windows system theme again?

This has happened before when Firefox updated, although it doesn't happen EVERY time. The last time it happened, I recall being able to find a simple about:config adjustment on Google (not on this site), but I can't find it now. (As I recall, it was an about:config item that didn't sound like it would affect the menubar color, but it did.)

I have another laptop on which I rushed to disable automatic updates, so Firefox on that laptop still shows the system color. Is there a file in the Profiles folder I could copy into the problem computer that would restore the theme color setting?

Thanks.

Doing a search for this change provides hundreds of topics and thousands of folks complaining about the added spaces between menu items and no real solution. I found one that entails making changes to the chrome file and proton, I tried this and it doesn't work for me and I shouldn't have to make changes to files in the first place. If anyone from the development team is listening, I know you had to satisfy those using touch screens, but how about making it easy for us to change the spacing a bit tighter. Many of us have lots of bookmarks and find we now have to scroll to find the ones at the bottom, then go to the top again to select "open in......". Could you add a simple toggle, "wide menu spacing or close menu spacing"? Anything that worked on version 89 or 90, does not work now. Please, this really is frustrating
