The former versions of Reader View looked pretty much like normal documents - without all the superfluous clutter that an original webpage article might contain. So, it could easily be printed OR copy/pasted into a new Word document, and then printed. However, in the new Reader View (v. 87 - 88), most of the photographs are retained. In fact, they are often duplicated, i.e., instead of having one head shot of the subject of an article, there will be TWO identical ones - along with many of the other original photos (also duplicated). So, we now have a Reader View that contains twice the number of photos than the original webpage article did!!

The consequence? I have to "copy" blocks of text; paste them into a document; return to the webpage; dodge the photo(s); and go to the text for another copy/paste cycle. Spin, Repeat, etc. This is SO tedious, especially when the previous Reader View retained, at most, only one photo at the beginning, followed by nothing else but text. This allowed for fast and easy printing or saving. Alas, this is no longer possible (and I have expanded/modified Print Preview as much as possible and followed every other "temporary" tweak suggested in the Support Community!)

Lastly, on v. 88, I still cannot see the former "Simplify Page" (which, if memory serves, did not do as thorough a job of minimizing a webpage.) For what it's worth, is there any way the previous version of Reader View can be resurrected, preferably with NO photos, on a permanent basis?? Thanks very much.

How can I access the Description text field that disappeared from the Firefox bookmarks “Library” window in some relatively recent release (a year or so ago maybe)?

Highlighting any bookmark in the “Library” window currently displays only a “Name”, “Location”, “Tags” & “Keyword” field in the bottom of the window's RH pane but it used to also display a larger, 5th text field called Description (or something similar). Likewise, highlighting any bookmark folder in the “Library” window currently only displays a “Name” field but it used to also display a Description field.

This bookmark Description field was invaluable in storing text notes on what a given bookmark was useful for and, equally importantly, what it wasn't useful for (i.e. when to use a different bookmark). If one has hundreds of bookmarks, this type of information cannot adequately be captured in just the “Name” & “Tags” fields.

I have several tabs. Last I closed a bunch I was over 200, so it's a bit annoying when I start Firefox to do something, and randomly it'll start up the tab(s) of Facebook I have among the many.

It doesn't matter what tab I was on when I exited Firefox last, Facebook will be loaded without fail. I tried it several times with different sites, and I never exited with Firefox being the page I was on last.

Often my tab list on the top will be scrolled over (not by me, it happens when the Facebook tab loads) and I will have to scroll back to find the currently open page's tab. (The loaded page, whatever I was on last is on the screen, no problem with that.)

Anyway, I could list several reasons why this is a nuisance, but the thing is: I do not know why this is happening, it is disruptive, so I wish to understand the problem and stop it from happening.

This has persisted throughout several versions of Firefox, so I do not think it has to do with updates, but I do have the Facebook Container and F.B Purity addons.

As I use the left hand to push the keyboard and the right hand to move the mouse, it is very inconvenient. I appreciate it if you tell me how to change the setting.

I use 3 profiles (work, private and media) side by side. When I open external links I have no control over which profile will open the link. The link is opened right away (so no profile manager interference) in a random profile. I do want it to open right away, but ideally would like to easily set a priority order for profiles to open the external links without having to restart the profiles.

Starting today, on Firefox 87.0 for Linux, any link that I had visited in the past is showing up as visited in the current session. I am in the process of updating thousands of listings on Ebay and the link color helps me keep track of where I am in the list each day, especially since I have had to start back from the beginning of the list 3 times. I do not want to clear my history as I keep going back to it to reference old pages. Is there a setting to clear the links visited color without clearing the history? Or is this a bug?
