Been using FF since 2005ish. (Me 1946) Latest version (90.0.2 (64-bit) annoys me greatly because I can't remove the unwanted 'Pocket' BS. I've followed several online 'advices' on this, including this site, & still it persists.

FF is getting like IE IMO, with all the awkwardness to remove unwanted Bloatware. For an 'Ordinary User'. Could some knowledgeable FF user please explain, in language I can understand, English, but not very Tech Savvy) how I remove Pocket from the browser Thanks.

Again....I´m starting to get really frustrated over latest firefox as it is becoming more unfriendly and too much for the tech savy. Having got the bookmarks over to the LHS of the screen, (what a struggle) now one simply cannot organize the sites to type and not by name. There is not a single cue click on this. It would be nice to have a restore feature to how the setup was BEFORE the browser crashed.

This morning I opened Firefox only to find that the GUI had changed completely. I have managed to enable the theme and have customised the toolbar, but my extensions are no longer visibile to the right of the search box, and my dictionaries and language packs are disabled without (so it seems) the possibility of enabling them. My bookmarks seem to be intact, but Firefox is now extremely slow (I've been waiting ages for a new tab to open). What is going on, and how can I restore my extensions (including password manager) and language tools?

When I am on a web page for which I wish to use the microphone and camera, the pop up/down up by the URL does indeed show up for authorizing the use of the camera and microphone. However the tick box "Remember this decision" is no longer present.

Once I have hit Allow, the only option that I have when I click on the camera icon to the left of the URL is to click the X next to Allowed Temporarily.

Under Settings/Permissions the Camera does not show the site for which I have given permissions. Interestingly under Microphone the site is in the list under permission but I am still asked when I go to the page.

I have both a built in camera and microphone in this HP but I almost always use my Logitech 9000 as the picture and microphone are much better.

This used to work fine until recently. How do I get the "Remember this decision" option back?

Windows 10 Firefox 90.0.2

Thank you for your assistance.

Hello:

Quite a few iterations of Firefox ago (cannot recall which), the orientation of the drop down menu listing the bookmarks inside any folder in the toolbar was either towards the 'left' or towards the 'right', depending of the amount of screen real estate available to the right side of the screen where it was opened.

If the listing could not be properly seen by opening the drop down menu towards the 'right', it would be opened towards the 'left'.

This worked perfectly well with my three screen setup, with Firefox in a window in the centre screen. ie: Firefox knew it was inside a three screen wide setup and in the centre screen, so it also "knew" that the right edge of the centre screen was the limit for available screen real estate.

At some time this stopped working in the described manner.

It seems that Firefox now ignores the right edge of the centre screen and as a result the drop down menu for any folder in the toolbar opens to the 'right' and invades the right screen. (see attached screen capture)

If Firefox is opened in a window inside the right screen, it proeprly recognises the right edge of the screen as the limit and acts accordingly.

This is quite a problem for me: I make intensive use of the toolbar with bookmarks inside folders and subfolders and this heavily affects my everyday work.

Is there a way to get back to how it used to be? ie: Firefox using the right edge of the screen it is opened in as the limit to open a drop down menu.

Thanks in advance,

S.

Does Firefox 90 fully respect the default desktop theme and show tab divider lines?

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.

Hi I have 'restore previous session' set in Firefox and it does this except that I usually close FF with all but one window minimised. When I start FF for the next session it opens all the windows and I have to close them all then choose the one I was using last.

Is it possible to get FF to respect the minimisation of windows over sessions?

When I am on a site and wish to send a message, mail pops up from me to the contact address and then I have all this Chinese text in the body of the message. What is this for?

Hello, my hero! I need your help. Look at the screenshot and you will understand faster. Is it possible to return the icons to Firefox dropdown menus after Firefox removed this functionality in June updates? For example, if you open "Application menu" you cannot work fast because you have to read all those menus. It makes my work too slow! I have got used to visual pictograms, but now they are gone, not-thanks to you Firefox devs!!! New tab, New window, New private window, Bookmars, History, Downloads, Passwords, all of these are just words, just text! It used to be so convenient just to quickly click the icon, and now i have to read all the wordsto hopefully find the required function. Can you make icons for those menus, please? Or at least, is there any extension for this? p.s. Come on Firefox, you have only made the design worse because it slows down people's ability to find the required things. How can this text be better than icons??? Do I have to count them or should I have a reaction of an insect? p.s.s. Firefox 90.0.2.

The appearance of my toolbars and tabs has changed a lot without my permission. How does this happen? It has confused me a lot and is no longer as easy to use, in fact it has become a burden trying to figure out how to navigate each window / tab I have open. Ex: some things that were in my toolbar have disappeared. Also, there used to be a pair of vertical arrows I could click once to zoom in or out. Now it has disappeared and I have to go up to the main FF menu then click View then click Zoom then click one of four menu items. This is nuts and adds several more steps to what used to be one simple step. WHY???? I have not downloaded any new recent versions of FF and yet all these changes were made anyway without my knowing it or asking for it. How can I get back to my former version that I was happy with?

The system print works better for me than what Firefox has implemented, is there a setting somewhere to bypass the Firefox print and go directly to system print. Not hard to bypass by clicking, but if there is a setting I would use it.
