Windows 10 Firefox 88/89 64-bit PC It seems there was a compact mode before version 89? I don't know if that's what I want.

I would like to have a simple selection in FF Preferences to turn OFF the Proton stuff. I am not an IT geek and I'm not comfortable doing things like changing CSS code - if I knew how to do that stuff, I'd be using Linux not Windows. Since I'm stuck with Windows, I rely on a good browser like FF v.88 to take care of the technical stuff.

Version 89 seems to be OK with Proton shut off, but I hear this is a temporary fix. I also don't know if shutting off Proton fixed the spacing nightmare in Bookmarks - I lost mine reloading v.88 and haven't had a chance to look for them. (v.89 is on the PC upstairs - this one is still on v.88.)

For some context on the anger at FF's change, those of us who use Facebook on a regular basis were forced into a horrendous update in late 2021 which barely works, and Facebook continuously changes code, fixing what isn't broken. To find that the browser we've relied on for years did the same with no warning is very upsetting.

I'd like to get a message directly to Mozilla but "Submit Feedback" has been shut down for over a week.

FF updated without warning this AM and now my bookmarks have gone. History is still there. Any solution. ? I have been getting more and more disappointed with some of these "upgrades" and have dropped it off my Android devices because of the stupid interface. Looks like I might have to drop it off my Win machines. Thanks Greg

How can I turn off the search from the address bar? I have an old FIREFOX HOME Page with Google search bar the middle of the page. I went to type a search in and there were no words being typed; instead, the cursor auto jumped to the address bar and typed the search there. I don't want that! I don't like that! Can it be stopped?

Please help.

When I try to connect to the site for my internet provider, I am connected to the companies site for businesses. Ii have tried my cell (OK), my laptop (OK), and Safari (OK). so it looks like FireFox has become confused about the site meant to be accessed by that URL. Suggestions on how to reteach FireFox, please.

I am having issues with activation of an existing O365 subscription. After hours working with Microsoft Office support the issue is still not resolved.

That is seemingly unrelated to Firefox, yet when trying to resolve the issue I uninstalled O365 twice, I could not open Firefox. I received the error "VCRUNTIME140_1.dll was not found". After reinstalling O365, I was able to access Firefox but all of my bookmark folders are gone.

How do I recover those bookmark folders (with hundreds of bookmarks--if they're permanently gone, it will be a significant loss). AND why would uninstalling O365 affect Firefox?

The "xulstore" window resizing problem

Since some time, Firefox (currently 89.0) on Windows 10 automatically reduces the window size from "fullscreen" to "maximized" when re-opening it from another program. So I have to wait until the window size reduction is complete before having to re-enlarge it again (which is quite annoying)

After a short web search, it turned out that this window size reduction is caused by the "xulstore.json" file in the profile folder and several other users are also reporting this issue. However, none of them in the forums I visited knew a permanent solution. I unsuccessfully tried the following:

  • When I delete "xulstore.json", the window size reduction problem goes away only to re-appear after a few re-openings of Firefox (as the xulstore file is re-established then).
  • Editing the xulstore file did not work, as Firefox overwrites it.
  • Denying Firefox writing permission (via Windows) also doesn't work, as Firefox creates a temporary copy of the xulstore file which again causes the resizing problem.
  • Denying access to this temporary copy does not work either.

It seems like Firefox does everything possible just to keep the resizing problem persisting. Is there any permanent solution (different from the failed solution attempts above)? Or even better: could you remove the automatic resizing in a coming version update of Firefox? It seems like I am not the only one who would be grateful about this.

I was using Firefox this morning, and the program crashed. When I restarted, I found I had lost all my passwords. I searched for the "Old Firefox Data" folder on my desktop--and everywhere else, and there is no such folder on my computer. I tried importing passwords from Safari and that didn't work at all. I am traveling right now and don't have access to my backup disk.

This is the second time this has happened with FF, and I am about to dump the program because of this.

Any ideas?
