The tab dropdown menu normally has a bar down the side which shows which tabs are onscreen at the moment. With the latest update this has disappeared, to be replaced by a single bar marking the currently open tab.

It seems silly, but that bar made it easier to control and limit my number of open tabs (which is quite anxiety-inducing, at least for me).

Is there a skin to restore the old appearance, or (even better) an option to restore the setting?

When I open my router in a browser, I get the insecure-connection warning before the site connects. I want to get rid of that warning for the router; after all, it's internal to my network, and I browse through a private VPN. I know how to get rid of the insecure-connection warning for all sites, through about:config, but I don't know how to teach the browser that this particular site (192.168.1.1) is secure.

Can someone teach me (a very difficult task) how to teach the browser (probably a very simple task) about that one site? Thanks very much.

I've looked through a few previous posts but there are no answers. I got off of Chrome today and each time I do I realize why I go back to Chrome. This back button will not go back after many mashes unless I reload the page a time or two which is annoying. I don't want to have any dealings with google but this would do it.

I've read that I need a fresh reinstall. I just downloaded the browser once again. How has something this simple not been fixed after all of this time?

I guess I'll ask once more. How do I correct this? Please no tech jargon. Simple steps. I appreciate it.

I like dark themes, they are easy on the eyes especially north of the equator.

When you reload any web page there is a brief white flash before the web page is drawn, can this be changed to a different color, e.g. dark gray? The white flash is distracting especially if you have a browser running on a second monitor, and blinding if on the primary monitor.

I have tried various dark themes, as well as .CSS files, nothing makes a difference. It seems to be a default built in feature of Firefox version 62.0?

Firefox has updated its browser. I am currently working on the updated ESR channel (I need to use Java) version 60.2. Now when I want to bookmark a page and click on the blue star I cannot see my entire list of folders in order to sort the page into the right place. I know they are still there because I can see them when I click "Bookmarks" at the top of the page but the functionality isn't there. I searched for an answer but nothing seems to fit my situation. Thanks.

The option to restore previous session on start up does not work now. Firefox asks to close all the tabs and loads homepage on startup.

Privacy and security setting require too much time and too much to have to learn just secure access to the Internet? Why don't you get it? Firefox users need to have default suites of security setting from which to choose. Examples: Maximum Security: High Security: Medium Security: Low security: Roll my own by picking and choosing.

Clicking on any of these security categories should list what is included and maybe an option to change something.

Once an option is chosen, subsequent changes and updates to features within that option should be automated and a 'What's new/changed in the chosen security category be added within security updates emails.

As it is I have to spend hours figuring what alll this stuff means just to get security internet acces via a Firefox - not that other are better.

I have windows 7 Professional. When I click the star, I am offered an option to save the link in the Other Bookmarks folder. If I click the drop-down arrow, I am offered 3 choices, Bookmarks Toolbar, Bookmarks Menu, or Other Bookmarks. Sometimes I am offered Choose. If I click either of the first two, I am asked for tags. If I click Choose, I am dumped into one of these choices. How do I see my bookmarks and choose one? Thank you.

Before the Quantum release, I would right click the mouse, click the star and the bookmark menu would appear with the most used folder list. Now, this behavior has changed to only drop you at the top level of the bookmark tree. Yes, I know I can use the bookmark icon on the toolbar, That is not as convenient as right clicking the mouse. PLEASE stop degrading the UI. how can I restore the old mouse behavior?

The active one of several tabs looks like it is recessed between his neighbouring tabs. Frequently I close the tab next to it in an attempt to close the active tab. This is quite annoying, as I can not get used to it, still. I am a computer user since the early 1980s and I usually avoid such mistakes, easily. Apparently this detail of the current interface design is counterintuitive and would benefit from a gentle refinement.

However, I would like to ask for the motivation of this change in style (please excuse the wording, as I am not a native speaker of English). Probably I will get used to it if only I knew the underlying design rule.
