In most standard Windows applications, the title bar and tab colour follows the default Windows settings, e.g. (in my case) the title bar and tab colour of active application windows is blue. This is true even in Thunderbird. Since FF 89, title bar and tabs are something between white and light gray, which is extremely user-un-friendly. FF developer team should return to the previous colour scheme. Yes, I know the circumstances of free software but this is NO excuse to alienate millions of users. Developers that change fully functionable software just, well, just to CHANGE it should consider that they are doing WRONG. Could anyone tell them? I am just user, not developer and I am not willing to learn developer tools like BugZilla just for this simple guiding principle.

Every solution which I have found for Firefox 89 "Proton" so far which moves the Tabs Bar below the Navigation Bar (AKA "address bar"), with the Menu Bar above it, does NOT move the Tabs Bar below the Bookmarks Bar. The Bookmarks Bar appears to be overwritten and blank, and occupies space below the Menu Bar, Navigation Bar, and Tabs Bar. This empty space separates the three bars which are implemented and the content of the currently-selected tab below it.

Currently, my userChrome.css file is a copy posted by Corel-10 (?): __________________________________________________________________________________________________

Evidently, the text editor for this website does several things to the above original text that, frankly, seem unnecessary and undesirable. The .CSS file is just an unformatted text file, so what is the problem with simply copying its contents and pasting it in to the body of this post?

Which is also to say that I do NOT have a clue as to what any line in the file is meant to do, what effect it has, why it is even in the file at all, or why it is written in the way that it is. So DO NOT tell me that I "CAN" create a Cascading Style Sheet on my own when I cannot even modify one that has been provided. 

On the face of it, something is missing from the above CSS text. What change needs to be made to the above content so that the Bookmark Bar will appear between the Navigation Bar and the Tabs Bar??

Thank-you very much for your time and attention to this request for assistance.

Windows 10 OS Firefox version 89.0 Issue effecting all menus. Larger font and large space between items in drop down menu.

After update to the current version, click on eg: 'Bookmarks' and all bookmarks are listed. However, the font size has increased and there is a significant gap between each bookmark. This means a load of top level bookmarks are not instantly visible until you extend.

This problem is effecting all drop down Menus from the 'Menu Bar', but not the 'Menu Bar' itself and that also includes the 'Menu app icon (3 horizontal lines)'.

I have a large screen/monitor using 1920 x1080, it allows me to display many windows at once, so this must look really bad on anything smaller. I do not need extra scrolling or additional clicking etc as it only increases RSD issues. I do not have any sight issues.

How can I reset all menus back to the settings used prior to version 89.0 so that it looks normal?

Or is this a bug? I cannot believe this was actually by design.

Cheers for any help. It's driving me potty.

Hiya, I use bookmarks to keep a track of music I plan to listen to, and I had set up my folders so I could see everything in a subfolder on my screen. Now the font size or something changed and I can't see everything all at once on my screen. I don't have the time or energy right now to even think about trying to reorganise it all. Is there a way I can lower the font size or something to get back the space I lost?

In Ubuntu 18.04, I bring up a new page, click in the search bar in the middle of the page. Then when I start typing it jumps to the address bar although I have already placed and preferred the search bar to the right. No! NO! NO!

I use Duck Duck Go but Google does the same.

It is bad enough that the upgrade was automatically loaded but on top of that, changing preferences including dumping my home page. Change privacy settings without asking ( to a lower level on top of that ).

Really POOR form.

My setup:

  • FireFox: Version 89 for Mac
  • macOS Big Sur - Version 11.5.2
  • Only other Browser is "Safari"
  • Mac is only a few months old and fully setup by for me by Apple Support before purchase.

It does NOT matter what I have done to set Firefox as default, it is being required to be set up as though it is the first time every time I start up my Mac.

  • I have tried the following:

- System Preferences General, Set Default web browser as "Firefox" - this does show 'Firefox' as the default browser - Within Firefox, Preferences,General, Set FireFox as the Default Browser - this does show Firefox as the Default Browser - When the above did NOT seem to make any difference, 'Refreshed Firefox' - I also setup Firefox Options to "start up at Login" all the time.

NO luck. Currently living with the issue by opening Firefox every time I log in. Not sure what else I can do.

Does the "Update Available" popup screen shown in the uploaded image come from Firefox? It keeps coming back it seems every time I open Firefox. I clicked "Update" a few times, but Firefox never got updated, as far as I can tell. I tried turning off NordVPN but that does not allow an update to occur. Now I just click "Dismiss" if I need to see what's behind the popup. You have to click either "Update" or Dismiss" to get it to go away. There is no "x" at the upper right on the popup screen, which would allow you to close the screen without clicking either "Update" or "Dismiss". I worry that by clicking on either I am downloading some malware. William F Briel

On Windowws10, I am at version 89.0. I think that's the version that introduced this problem for me. If I open a new window, it is a duplicate of whatever window I was in before. That is, the new window has all the tabs the other window did. So, File-New Window copies whatever tabs are on the current window I am on. I've never seen this before. How can I make FF return to its normal behavior of giving me a window with nothing but a start window on it? Maybe I should go back several versions because recent changes like this and the negative effect a new release a few months ago had on default screen colors, have made my use of FF harder. Thanks.

I'm trying to remove the shadows that appear below and to the right of the bookmarks menu in Proton (i.e. the menu that pops up when you click the Bookmarks button on the toolbar).

I've managed to remove the shadow from the main bookmarks menu using this CSS:

 box.panel-arrowcontent {
   box-shadow: none !important;
 }

However, that doesn't remove the shadow from the submenus that pop up for each folder within the bookmarks menu (see the 1st screenshot).

I'm trying this using the following CSS:

 hbox[part=innerbox] {
   box-shadow: none !important;
 }

What's puzzling is that according to the inspector window, this CSS appears to be correct. In the 2nd screenshot, notice that my rule is shown as being in effect, and overriding the original rule in panelUI.css.

However, despite what the inspector shows – the shadow is still very much there!

Has anyone succeeded in removing this shadow?

I open the terminal (I'm using FreeBSD) and I run: `firefox --help` and I get a lot of command line options. However there seems to be no way to simply get the user agent string. This is kind of annoying because I might want to plug the current version of my Firefox browser in some automated scripts. At the moment I need to open Firefox, then go to the console and type in: `window.navigator.userAgent` copy the string manually and paste it wherever I want to use it. It would be really nice if there could be an extra option to the `firefox` command, like: `firefox --user-agent` that prints this information in the console. Maybe there's a way, if it is it must be really hidden because I couldn't find relevant information on how to do it.

Kind regards, Lucas.

Says that I can’t have lines separating my unused tabs anymore. This is SO annoying. Can anyone help me get borders between my unused tabs?

Also, WHY ARE YOU DOING THIS Mozilla? Now I have to stop EVERYTHING that I am doing and research how I can make your browser work the way I want it to. Why do you always assume that you know what is best for me?

I tried the "Stylish" add-in but when I try to install a specific style from their site - nothing happens.

The Firefox Universe is extremely vast, and trying to Google “lines between my unused tabs” is getting me nowhere. I don’t know how to develop themes. I don’t code. I just want the browser to look like it did last week. Is it really so much to ask?

Every. Single. Time. I update Firefox - I regret it!!!
