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.

Firefox 89 on my Raspberry Pi 4 is displaying what I'm guessing is a codec issue. Videos can be watched but the picture is corrupted by brightly coloured patches around areas of detail.

Prior to the version 89 upgrade, version 88 was working perfectly.

I have Firefox 89 on a Raspberry Pi and a PC. On the PC it still works perfectly, on the Pi video is displayed badly.

On the Pi Firefox 89 is running under Ubuntu 21.04. On the PC Firefox 89 is running under Ubuntu 18.04

Am I alone in this or have others seen the same issue ?

Assuming I am not alone, does anybody have any idea what has gone wrong ?

Ever since upgrading to FF89, some websites don't increase the font size when I zoom in using ctrl+mouse wheel. The default seems like 9px, really hard to read.

Facebook is a culprit. Also OctoPi, a local service. Facebook, at least, uses rem units. Doesn't react to zooming in.

So I am not sure what this is about. I know the search bar and URL are combined no matter what at this point, but the issue is that if I type any letter; it suggests a website that I have never visited, bookmarked, searched, etc.

Please see the screen shot I have attached. In this example, I typed the letter "y", although it can be done with any other letter, and an unwarranted site will pre-populate. I am assuming this is Mozilla is promoting/sponsoring certain websites when you start typing any letter, which I don't want a part of.

It can't be DuckDuckGo causing this (the search engine of this user's choice), because changing the Firefox settings from URL to Search bar only doesn't make this issue stop. Not sure what I can do to prevent unsolicited sites from showing up when I am typing into the URL field.

To replicate, you can start typing any letter into the URL/Search bar field and the first result directly underneath is a "random" website suggestion.

This is why I assume it is coming from Mozilla (not DuckDuckGo), because before the recent updates, there was never this issue. It is great that you guys want to promote your favorite sites, but from the user's end: it is forced upon us; which is not supposed to be Firefox-like.

I don't read the blogs and articles about Mozilla's vision, so perhaps this is a new feature and it works as expected; however, there should be an opt-out so that users can just search for a website name without a favored suggestion appearing directly below.

Newer release of Firefox auto-fill username and password when they should not. I have a web application that has a list of people. Optionally (form is even hidden requiring a click to see) a person can be a user (rare). My username and password are auto filled in ALWAYS now for the person (even when the form is not showing). Can I just change the field names (username, password) in the jsp and have Firefox NOT fill mine in automagically? Or if not, how do I tell the browser that these are normal fields - leave them alone PLEASE (do not auto-fill)?

If I right click on a webpage the context menu opens. If I then click outside the context menu it doesn't close, but stays open. If I move focus to the search bar (not the address bar), starts typing and select an item from the drop down list, the drop down list stay open. If I start typing in the address bar and select an item from the drop down lost, the drop down list stay open. If I click the Bookmark menu icon on the toolbar the drop down list with bookmarks open, but if I click outside the list, it doesn't close but stay open. The same thing happens with the program menu in Firefox. Even when I start a different program, the menus and drop down lists from Firefox stays open on top of the other program. The problem also happens when I run Firefox in Troubleshoot Mode.

Any ideas?

Hello,

after an update up to Firefox 89.0 (64bit) on my elementaryOS 5.1.7 (based on Ubuntu 18.04) I've got a grey-colored rectangle in the upper part of my window that overlays all elements of websites (cf. attached screenshot), however I still could pass via hyperlinks if there are any under the rectangle. It is very light grey in light mode and dark grey in dark mode.

I've tried following steps according to possible solutions found in the Internet : - launch Firefox in safe mode (the rectangle disappears) - make sure the default theme is used - turn on/off the hardware acceleration - update or disable and delete all add-ons and plug-ins (rectangle still present in normal mode) - delete and reinstall Firefox with wiping all its files on the local machine (including /home/user/.mozilla and /etc/firefox* folders) - delete again and install the flatpak version


Nothing of the above helps except of the safe mode. As I have tried already to delete add-ons and plug-ins, what else can I disable to try to solve the issue in normal mode ?

I would appreciate your help as this is the only browser that I (want to) use on a daily basis. Thanks in advance!

I just upgraded to Firefox 3.6.8 and now every time I try to watch a video on a site like youtube the screen is black and it says 'an error occurred, please try again later.' But when I tried with a different browser called Galeon it played. If I clear the cache and then refresh the page it will play using Firefox, but isn't there a way to fix this? If it's a bug, when will a patch be out? Side Note: I use Ubuntu Linux, if that makes a big difference.
