Hello,

I just upgraded to Firefox 87 and noticed that I wasn't able to go back to the previous webpage by clicking on the backspace button like what I have done in the past if I'm not using a mouse on my laptop and had to click on the back button in the toolbar with the trackpad. I'm not too sure of why that happened with the upgrade and was a little surprised about that. Hope I can be able to get around this in some way if one of you know anything about this. Thanks.

Odd copy problem in Firefox that doesn't appear in Chrome

On this web page

https://www.univision.com/shows/la-reina-del-flow/resumen-de-la-reina-del-flow-capitulo-64-video

you'll find a transcription section (which occurs on many of these univision/shows pages).

When I copy the section in Firefox words flow together because the copy doesn't copy exactly. I have tried half a dozen different copy addons, disabled them, changed options, etc. But nothing gets better. Generally, all the line breaks disappear, but even when I've found an option that leaves line breaks in they are different than the line breaks in the transcription section.

On the other hand, if I load the page in Chrome and do a simple copy of the transcription section, everything works fine.

I would really rather not use Chrome, but I've spent several hours trying everything I can thinks of, and nothing works.

Example with Firefox: erick: y tú crees que lucio te puso el arma en la manoy disparó para incriminarte. yeimy: pero obvio, erick, si no,con la muerte manín, seguramente se está vengando.o bueno, eso es lo que alcanzo yo a pensar, es lo que seme ocurre porque no sé qué más puedo decir.¿y tú qué piensas? yeimy: es lo que te digo.pero dejemos que la policía aclare todo esto.charly: vamos a grabar la primera parte del video.irma: ¿cómo así que primera parte, charly?

NOTE: "mano" and "y" are joined as are "se" and "me". They shouldn't be. Älso many spaces after punctuation marks are missing. These transcriptions can be long, so multiple words get joined.

Example with Chrome: erick: y tú crees que lucio te puso el arma en la mano y disparó para incriminarte. yeimy: pero obvio, erick, si no, con la muerte manín, seguramente se está vengando. o bueno, eso es lo que alcanzo yo a pensar, es lo que se me ocurre porque no sé qué más puedo decir. ¿y tú qué piensas? yeimy: es lo que te digo. pero dejemos que la policía aclare todo esto.

I'm going nuts. Any ideas?

Hello, I need your help with removing a duplicate bookmark star from the URL bar, please. The thing is I already have moved it to the top left corner just as I prefer. However, the star in the URL field is impossible to kill. I have tried to use the customization menu but it does not allow me to drag off this annoying URL star. And, even if I right-click it in hope to find something like "remove/hide the Bookmark star" this star does not react to right-clicks. Also, after some research I have not found the way to do it via about:config :-( _

  Can you help me remove the star in the URL bar? The star in the top left corner though should stay because this is where I need it, but the star in the URL bar should go away.

PS this problem appeared after the "wonderful' June GUI redesign. Before that I was able to remove the star easily from the address bar. I am attaching a screenshot below:

Suddenly I can't type into the search engine bar which is mid page on my home page.

I can select it, but it stays blank and anything I type appears at top of the page in the address bar. This happens with any browser I use on my home page (have tested with Google, Duck Go Go, and a few others; same thing happens.

I'd like to get back functionality on that search engine bar mid page.

The appearance of my toolbars and tabs has changed a lot without my permission. How does this happen? It has confused me a lot and is no longer as easy to use, in fact it has become a burden trying to figure out how to navigate each window / tab I have open. Ex: some things that were in my toolbar have disappeared. Also, there used to be a pair of vertical arrows I could click once to zoom in or out. Now it has disappeared and I have to go up to the main FF menu then click View then click Zoom then click one of four menu items. This is nuts and adds several more steps to what used to be one simple step. WHY???? I have not downloaded any new recent versions of FF and yet all these changes were made anyway without my knowing it or asking for it. How can I get back to my former version that I was happy with?

Hello:

Quite a few iterations of Firefox ago (cannot recall which), the orientation of the drop down menu listing the bookmarks inside any folder in the toolbar was either towards the 'left' or towards the 'right', depending of the amount of screen real estate available to the right side of the screen where it was opened.

If the listing could not be properly seen by opening the drop down menu towards the 'right', it would be opened towards the 'left'.

This worked perfectly well with my three screen setup, with Firefox in a window in the centre screen. ie: Firefox knew it was inside a three screen wide setup and in the centre screen, so it also "knew" that the right edge of the centre screen was the limit for available screen real estate.

At some time this stopped working in the described manner.

It seems that Firefox now ignores the right edge of the centre screen and as a result the drop down menu for any folder in the toolbar opens to the 'right' and invades the right screen. (see attached screen capture)

If Firefox is opened in a window inside the right screen, it proeprly recognises the right edge of the screen as the limit and acts accordingly.

This is quite a problem for me: I make intensive use of the toolbar with bookmarks inside folders and subfolders and this heavily affects my everyday work.

Is there a way to get back to how it used to be? ie: Firefox using the right edge of the screen it is opened in as the limit to open a drop down menu.

Thanks in advance,

S.

Hello, my hero! I need your help. Look at the screenshot and you will understand faster. Is it possible to return the icons to Firefox dropdown menus after Firefox removed this functionality in June updates? For example, if you open "Application menu" you cannot work fast because you have to read all those menus. It makes my work too slow! I have got used to visual pictograms, but now they are gone, not-thanks to you Firefox devs!!! New tab, New window, New private window, Bookmars, History, Downloads, Passwords, all of these are just words, just text! It used to be so convenient just to quickly click the icon, and now i have to read all the wordsto hopefully find the required function. Can you make icons for those menus, please? Or at least, is there any extension for this? p.s. Come on Firefox, you have only made the design worse because it slows down people's ability to find the required things. How can this text be better than icons??? Do I have to count them or should I have a reaction of an insect? p.s.s. Firefox 90.0.2.
