I'd guess there's already a discussion regarding this, but I don't know where. Getting rid of the borders when there are multiple tabs open and turning things gray makes for a far worse browsing experience for me. Why would one string of undifferentiated text in a long line of tabs make things any easier? It does not.

I've found a helpful site that allows turning off the new theme, but a commenter advises that that option too will soon be disabled: https://www.askvg.com/tip-restore-old-classic-theme-and-ui-in-firefox-89-and-later-versions/

Is there an add-on that keeps the "classic" theme? I've googled how to provide feedback. One of those links is dead. What's the best way to make my thoughts known?

People love tech, but the older I get the more I see how it demonstrates a lack of ownership, that nothing is really yours on your devices, that what you're comfortable with is only one weekly update away.

I want to get rid of adblock which I installed as an add on.

It doesnt work very well for my browsing needs and is continually getting in the way with selling pleas.

So how to get rid of it ? I do see that I can get a list in firefox of installed add-ins, so why cant I click on a delete delete button alongside the add-ins that I don't want ?

When version 89.2 rolled out, I was highly displeased by the fact that the default theme now no longer properly reflected the Windows theme settings (extremely noticeable on my end, since I use the Windows Classic theme with customized "3D object" colors); this defect had already affected the options dropdown but had now spread to the address/navigation bar, bookmarks toolbar, and scrollbar. This was extremely annoying, especially since none of the add-on themes can properly duplicate that aesthetic function. One of the things I liked about Firefox was that unlike Chrome, Opera, and Edge... it actually still respected the Windows theme settings (which programs like browsers should do by default). And now, that prized trait had been inexplicably and insensibly discarded.

I was further displeased by the removal of the dividing lines between tabs. This made Firefox substantially harder for me to use, almost headache-inducingly so. Whoever you have testing these changes before rollout - if anyone - should be replaced, because this was a massive accessibility downgrade. Unacceptably so.

These changes were so frustrating and ugly, and made the browser so much more difficult for me to use, that I reverted to version 88 and continue to remain on that version.

Does version 90 resolve these issues? If it does, I'll update. But if not.... then in my opinion it should be axed and you should cease pushing it in favor of working on a new version that does fix these poor decisions. And I'll be sticking to version 88 until that happens.

Good afternoon. I am using the most current version of Firefox (88.0.1) and have Windows 10 64-bit. I have my mouse configured so that if I am on the desktop to open a folder I only have to click once instead of twice. Not too long ago in Firefox if I click a link two duplicate tabs open occasionally instead of one. Not every time I click a link or even in every session but just from time to time. It never happened before and I haven't changed any mouse settings. It is very random and does NOT happen with Edge, just Firefox. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I'm happy for those who prefer the new style, but I am not one of them. The tabs don't need to be this big, and I prefer having visible borders between them. I also don't like rounded corners. The menu isn't as important, but I preferred how that looked before as well.

Is there some setting I can change, or should I just revert to an older version, hoping the option will exist in the future?

Thanks and have a good day.

I have Firefox home with a search engine as home page, but since the update to 89, when I try to type into the search box, it jumps to the address bar. This is very annoying. Can it be fixed? I do not want to use the address bar this way. I found a help that said to open the application menu and click "customize" but there is no "customize" option there. In the attached photo, I clicked in the search box to place the cursor there, but as soon as I began typing, it jumped to the address bar. This has never happened to me before in the 15 years I have used Firefox. I am a recent convert to Linux (about 1 year now) and am using Mint 19.3, Cinnamon 4.4.8, if that makes a difference.

My google searching is leaving me at a loss here. I did something and the taskbar at the bottom of the web browser is now covered by the browser. Not the bar at the top, the bar at the bottom that has whatever other programs you're running listed in multiple tabs. Every single damn search is leading to how to mess with the task/toolbar at the top of the freakin page. I can make it reappear if I press the windows button or open another program, but while in Firefox it's not visible. The top taskbar, bookmarks, and all are still there so it's not in full page mode. I know the fix is probably ctrl and some other button somewhere but what?

When I try and use the search bar in google to search anything, what ever I type appears in the address bar instead. Sometimes it trys to create a URL for what I am typing and fails.

I want to stop Firefox from using the address bar as the means of searching. I have read solutions online about changing things in about:config, however, this is not working fully.

It will only work it only works if I open up a new window. If I try and open up a tab it returns to trying to create a URL from my search requirements.

I have also tried the preference screen and nothing in there resolves the problem either.

ADBLOCK CUSTOM FILTERS not working on this site WHAT THE HECK IS THAT AHAH WHAT??? ALSO THIS. After "Refresh"ing Firefox, it now by default saves a file with the page title, not the filename. I can no longer find out how to change this default behaviour (presumably I'd used an addon that has been deleted). This is extremely inconvenient - many archives have large numbers of filenames like "<number>.txt", e.g. "234567.txt", but all with the same title. I don't understand why keeping the old Firefox default was not made an option when you changed to saving by title!

Hi. When Firefox added the screenshot functionality, it was very useful to me since i didn't have to open snip & sketch every-time I want to take a screenshot. I did notice that the ability to access the screenshot from the address bar was removed and moved to the mouse's right click options instead. I work with Microsoft azure and have to create documents for clients and by default, right clicking doesn't work on azure and some other sites. Because of this, i can't take screenshots using Firefox. Is there a way to put the screenshot option back to the address bar or maybe have it show up in the toolbar options? Thanks.
