I don't know if its an issue with the theme or Firefox itself (I think it's Firefox because it already happened on previous versions), but when I open certain number of tabs, or a tab with certain characteristics that I don't know, the whole row of tabs increases its height. And it annoys me. Thanks beforehand!

The German word concoction "Verschlimmbessern" which translates into "constantly 'improving' something until it actually becomes worse or dysfunctional".

I'm at a point now where we all give up on Firefox as these constant updates and uncalled and not requested changes not only become annoying but also introduce new dysfunctionality. (just like Windows 10 updates)

Too many to list here. but this job securing through constant new updates and changes gets very annoying.

Now the search feature has changed into some absurdity having to be in the address bar. We don't need that we don't want that! we wanted like it is and always was before.

Searching support I found answers but applying them does not work: "browser.urlbar.suggest.searches" change to false Search "keyword.enabled" change to false Search "browser.fixup.alternate.enabled" change to false browser.urlbar.openViewOnFocus change to false browser.urlbar.update1 change to false browser.urlbar.update1.interventions change to false browser.urlbar.update1.searchTips change to false

About to uninstall this nonsense altogether and install an old version again or better yet just give up on it and find another browser! I need a reliable browser that works and not something that annoys me after every update.

Hello, I would like to use the search function in the tab again. How can I adjust this? At the moment it is so that when you enter it it appears right above in the link line (see picture). I would like it to be in the search below, directly in the tab. Before version 88 this was possible. Why was it removed?

hallo, ich möchte wieder im Tab die Suchfunktion nutzen. Wie kann ich dies einstellen? Zur Zeit ist es so, daß bei einer Eingabe es gleich oben in der Linkzeile erscheint (siehe Bild) Dabei möchte ich es unten in der Suche, direkt im Tab haben. Vor Version 88 war das möglich. Warum wurde es entfernt?

When I launch Firefox, it refuses to open My Yahoo, which is the home page I have been using for many years. My.yahoo.com is still entered in Settings as my home page. Even if I type the URL into a new tab, it will not load. I have now switched to Edge as my default browser and it is working just fine. I would like to go back to Firefox, but there is no way I can do that if it wont even let my use my preferred home page. This is the second time I have presented this problem. So far - no response. I can be reached at ... @yahoo.com.

I would like to target the whole of the main content pane in Firefox in order to overlay a visual filter on top of it.

Although websites can be altered with scripts and Firefox offers colour options in its preferences, these are imperfect workarounds that only target specific elements of the websites. Instead, I would like to overlay a translucent filter over the main content pane itself that would allow me to control the appearance (dimness, saturation, contrast) of the entire main content pane rather than individual elements of a website.

How would I do that? Which files, which code snippets?

zefir_zwiejek said

I have several hundred tabs, tick them all and want to bookmark them, but that never works. I'm not sure what "tick them all" refers to.

There's no built-in way to bookmark all open tabs across all windows at once, but Firefox does have a feature to bookmark all of the tabs in the current window to a new folder. The shortcut is Ctrl+Shift+D, or you can find it on

classic Bookmarks menu on the optional menu bar optional Bookmarks menu button for the main toolbar Does that feature work? If not, is there any error message?

Are you still able to add one bookmarks manually, for example by clicking the star icon in the address bar? If that doesn't work, it can indicate a database problem (more details if needed).

I will also add that the "Settings" menu does not open! Settings, formerly called Options, should open an internal page in a new tab. If you type or paste the address about:preferences into the address bar and press Enter, can Firefox show the page?


==Ctrl+Shift+D = NOT WORK / NOR REACTION / NO MESSAGE ERROR /NOTHING HAPPEN This marks 1000 Tabs, but nothing else can be done, no reaction, no error, no message, I don't know how to write or add 1000 tabs to the bookmarks, I asked a many developers, for 3 years and no one can help, I tried 100 different ways and there's nothing I can do, do I really need to lose my data? "Reset firefox completely" = data loss Even moving the profile and trying to restore it always ends with the same problem, still nothing works, how to save all 1000 tabs to a text file, even the best of the best ways fails, because after saving it is 0KB, no data !!!

Hellow all

An unexpected firefox crash has completely ruined where I was before. I am completely bewildered over this one. I lost my bookmarks so I´ve selected toolbars and the bit regarding new folder but nothing happens. This step by step approach isn´t working and in no time a time out occurs. I cannot restore and opening a new tab all I get is an unstoppable wheel. It´s pretty hopeless.

Has anyone any ideas ? rich

Clicking on the Comments section in any ZDNet article (https://www.zdnet.com/article/) gets no response at all. The Comments section doesn't open, I'm not prompted to log in -- nothing. The cursor does change from the default arrow to a hand with pointed finger, as usual, and the Comments bar color flashes as it should when I click on it -- but that's the limit of interaction. I've tested the link with Chrome and Bing and the function still works there, but not in Firefox, and apparently hasn't since about the 26th of July. What's going on, and how can this problem be addressed?

As the title says, almost all of my bookmarks have completely disappeared without any warning. I didn't update firefox, restart it, or anything. I have no idea why this happened, as firefox has been working perfectly all day long, and only after i left my computer for an hour or two, did i come back to the terrifying sight that all of my nearly 630 bookmarks have fully vanished into thin air.

Oddly enough, i still have one folder, and a few seemingly random bookmarks left over, as to where the rest of them went, i have no idea.

I've attempted to restart firefox, log out, log back in, disable extensions, and more. The first thing i tried was to use the restore option, however when i click it, it simply says "unable to process file". Out of all the backups available to me, including a nearly year and half old one from an Old Firefox Data folder i had on my desktop, none of them work.

I also checked underneath profiles, and i saw that i had one more profile than i should, however when using said profile, it has absolutely zero of the bookmarks, so that's a no go.

I really can't wrap my head around what could've caused this or how to rectify it, and im sort of panicking at the idea of years upon years of bookmarks just disappearing at the drop of a hat.

My only solace is that it appears my mobile (ios) firefox app appears to have all of the bookmarks still saved and accessible, but i can't find any way to transfer those bookmarks onto browser.

Any help would be enormously appreciated
