The three dots for menu on bottom bar have very less space. Its hard to touch it especially from left hand thumb. It would be nice if horizontal space is increased for menu button. So many times it happen, on an attempt to touch menu item from left hand thumb, tab option is clicked. It would be even better if instead of three dots any other icon is chosen.

Hi,

I would like to create a pop-up blocker exception for a local temporary file like: file:///C:/Users/username/AppData/Local/Temp/DisplayURLs3227552811823012098.html

My firewall management tool generates a local report file, automatically opened by Firefox, but I can't add an exception like: "file:///C:" or "file:///C:/Users/username/AppData/Local/Temp/*"; it just does not work.

Thanks, Tom

FF89 looks great BUT something's missing. I click the 3 bars to bring up the menu. There used to be a choice "Open file..." that would open a pull-down menu of the folder where I keep a special set of html files, something I used every day, but it's gone now. I can still open the Windows file explorer, and navigate to that folder, but that's a few extra steps. I found a place to customize the toolbar, and "open file..." was there in the overflow menu, and I tried to move it back but it didn't come. It's not under More Tools either.

This is plea for an immediate fix from anyone, anywhere that can do so.

FF update just done today June 14th, 2021 as effectively cut off any user with less than perfect depth, color, or acuity of vision. Whether using natural or lightbulbs or fireflies.

It also threw out most of the screen/toolbar settings!

This "upgrade" is going to drive me away from FF asap because neither of us can no longer read the screen!!!

Its the lack of contrast. It's the new, much smaller, default font size. And lack of demarcation to the tabs as they align with one another side by side. Like a snow-blind whiteout.

It also threw out most of the toolbar itself and altered many of the FF "setting" selections that were previously our defaults or elections.

These are basic attributes which the "upgrade" to FF has just unilaterally changed.

Now, as the user I have to 1) seek out and 2) comprehend more complex instructions like "about: config" and jockey between that and M'soft windows settings??? And then hope I get it right????

FYI I did try via another user-help response. Some relief there with font size, but it looks like a fun house mirror w/ weird size toolbar and onscreen font size. And it took me an hour and alot of holding my breath to see if I got it jiggered okay.

Or seek out and try out any number of color font/screen themes which might work well??-- if I were my grandkids gaming all night under the bedcovers.

Folks have graciously put in the time, effort and creativity to make various pretty and graphically appealing themes. Scrolled through pages and pages and have loaded over a dozen try-outs, but unusable/impractical.

I am not a expert user, dont want to become one, and if FF goes the way of the buffalo and the "vcr" programming  (haha!) then so be it.

However, you have always had a great product, and we want you to continue to be successful!!

Why oh why is it fouled up so badly?? Please don't make me switch to gawd-awful Edge or other browser after being a loyal FF user for years!

I had to reconfigure the entire toolbar setup this afternoon so less- computer-capable, and more importantly less visually-able spouse could use his few desired websites. Wasted valuable hours on unnecessary and exhausting task.

Am going to attempt the revert to older version of FF as stated in another thread just so I can get back to work and keep my visually and computer challenged spouse happy!

Rarely write in to help sheets, forums or social sites, but this absolutely must be addressed!

FF staff PLEASE fix or at least make the former version more obviously, and readily available!!

Sincerely, loyal users

I don't see an option to restore previous session any more.

did some googling and found a reference to checking a box in option

it said that then it would be automatic.

so I check that and I'm waiting to see what's going to happen in future: it didn't make my previous session come back this time.

so the question is: Is this right? We must check that option and that's it? No way to go back to the old version method?

It used to be the case that, while scrolling, after taking my fingers away from the mousepad, that the pages I am viewing in Firefox would continue to move down, slowly coming to a halt. Now, instead, it comes to a sudden halt the moment I stop active scrolling, which honestly makes scrolling down long pages take a lot longer and I really just don't like how it feels. This only recently started happening, does anyone know how to make scrolling go back to the old way where it would keep moving in the direction you sent it in for a short while following?

Hello,

The gestures defined by browser.gesture.swipe.* do not work on Firefox Linux unless the ALT key is held down. I only discovered it that worked at all with ALT by accident while searching about this issue...

Is there a way to get gestures to work WITHOUT requiring the use of the keyboard (which would seem to defeat the purpose of having touchpad gestures)?

Thanks.

Hello,

I keep getting Microsoft Windows Message telling me Firefox is running unnecessarily in the background. this is causing the battery to drain faster than normal. I kill it in the task manager but, it restarts a few seconds later.

Windows shows Firefox starts running in the background when windows starts. its running 89% in the background, my use is only 10% there is another 1% of unknown use. This background use of Firefox is also using 58% of the CPU causing other apps and programs, games I'm running to lag hang or stop.

I have uninstalled Firefox and used a cleaner to remove all leftover files, folders and registry keys then, rebooted, ran the cleaner again then, rebooted again then, reinstalled Firefox using a fresh install file. It's still running in the background.

I need to know how to stop Firefox from starting up and running in the background.

I even tried disabling Firefox updater and Firefox maintenance in the boot menu, that didn't stop Firefox from running in the background; doing that did lower the CPU use by Firefox 10%

Thank You

Firefox 89 introduced super-extra-duper fatty bold fonts. Fatter than the Futura bold fonts. I want to get rid of this uglyfaced font that is hardly readable on non-retina screens.

Tried to lower the level of [ layout.css.font-visibility.level ] from default 3 to 1 ... doesn't do anything.

Do the Mozillians really believe that every FF user has a Retina type screen before their eyes ? With the 20/20 vision of Superman ? What were the devs thinking ???
