CSS code for Tabs On Bottom (under the bookmarks bar) for Firefox 89 & 90 is available here: https://www.reddit.com/r/FirefoxCSS/comments/nq2d0q/tabs_on_bottom_for_firefox_89/ Once again, this long-time FF user has to wonder why Tabs On Bottom isn't a simple preference choice, for which I would GLADLY PAY for Firefox, but only the wizards at Mozilla (who've spent millions on rather useless things like "Pocket") know the answer to that. -SB

The update to 89.0 proceeded just like any other update. I was concerned about the new schemes, as none looked inviting. However, I was immediately offered to keep my previous scheme, which configured just fine. (thumbs up!). I otherwise use minimal configuration changes. I continue to prefer it over Safari ,and Firefox's efforts to keep browsing, etc. more secure. Still using OS 10.12 and have no issues with using it on a large screen.

So moz://a (Mozilla) decide to kill its own browser with a so bad UI : too big ! Previous version was more slim, a comfort with wide screens ! Use instead firefox ESR ;-) (the long time support for entreprise) https://www.mozilla.org/firefox/enterprise/

Not liking 89 at all the dark theme is too dark and the light theme is too bright so i tried to go back to 88 and was greeted with a message that I had to create a new profile in order to go back. Think I will just use Safari its much faster anyway, I see why Firefox is losing users.

Firefox 89 totally messes those of us with custom .css configurations, including Tabs on Bottom. Tabs are now showing up on the status bar at the very bottom of the window, and when you click on one, all the rest disappear, rendering the browser non-functional. So I've gone back to version 88 until some guru can sort out the code necessary to get the functionality back. I've long since given up on Mozilla coming to its senses and actually listening to users, but as long as the product remains configurable, I'll continue to use it. It's still the best, safest, most secure browser in Macdom and I would gladly PAY Mozilla for Firefox. Revenues from Google are probably still keeping the company afloat, although their boat is probably springing more leaks with each passing release. -SB

Firefox is probably still losing market share to Chrome (which is thinly disguised spyware) and Safari (which is mushy and unconfigurable) but it's still the best, safest, most adaptable browser for Mac. Although I would dearly like Mozilla to make "tabs on bottom" a preference (if not a default) and I go ballistic every time the developers plop them back on top, I would still GLADLY PAY TO SUPPORT the product. Although "Pocket" really didn't pan out, I have come to appreciate "containers." Please, Mozilla, don't let Firefox die. -SB

Firefox is a great browser that is fast and secure. The one thing that annoys me is the fact that it doesn't follow well the changes between dark and light mode; it always gets stuck in dark mode, even when MacOs has automatically changed to light mode. There are websites that follow this change as well (like Twitter and YouTube), and that is also not reflected. A fix would be nice.

Firefox 83.0 appears to be causing conflicts with Instagram on macOS Big Sur. Since 83.0 update, if you click an IG link, you are directed to the IG log-in page, not the actual linked page. If you paste an IG user account address directly into the browser, Firefox again re-directs you to the IG log-in page.

Hey all, was wondering if someone could help me here. I'm having a strange issue with Firefox and Big Sur. When I launch Firefox, and I have notifications from Youtube waiting, it will show duplicates. I have only noticed this as of FF 83. 82.0.3 didn't have this behavior, and none of my other notifications act strange in Big Sur, in fact, the upgrade has been extremely solid and smooth for me with mainly cosmetic glitches from time to time. I am trying to find out if this is a Big Sur bug, a Firefox bug, or a Youtube bug. The latest chrome under Big sur also shows YT notifications correctly. The funny part is, it's only when I first start FF, this happens. If it's running and I get a YT notification about a video, etc, I see it once as expected. I've cleared all of YouTube's site data from fF, disabled notifications fir FF and YT and re enabled each, and even restarted. If anyone else has experienced this please let me know especially if you were able to resolve this. Thanks

Many, many years of using Firefox browser in Windows and Mac machines. Now I have a strange problem in my iMac Catalina machine with Firefox 81.0.2 (64-bit). I am not able to sign into my user account in some web seller's page and not able to open their responses to me. Firefox 81.0.2 just complains that I should allow cookies, which I do. By contrast I am able perform those tasks in my MacBook machine running Mojave and Firefox browser 81.0.1 (64-bit) having the same cookie settings.

Slooooowwww, Very, very, very, slow .... Lots of "page timed out" / "connection timed out" / "Resend" messages constantly popping up. Why? Microsoft Edge and Epic web browsers are doing this when used on the same computer with the same internet connection. I even tried disabling my add-ons to see if that made a difference, but sadly, no ....

HEADS UP, a 77.0.1 update was released in less than 24 hours after 77.0.0 was released, fixing a fairly important bug that shipped in 77.0. MU will probably take awhile to even register the 77.0.1, so if this page is still showing 77.0, you may want to go direct to Mozilla and download the .0.1 update.

Firefox is a browser I use on macOS Catalina, iOS 13, and Windows 10. It's been incredibly useful for the past several years, but the recently introduced privacy controls have made it exceptional. Using Sync to keep my bookmarks, passwords, and site preferences across devices is amazing. Having Lockwise on iPhone allows me to get at those to feed my information to apps carefully. The one downfall I've recently seen is that 4 GB of RAM on Catalina means that Firefox won't work correctly. Still, I'm using a mid-2012 MacBook Pro and now, with 16 GB, Firefox seems as good and quick as it did when this machine was new. It doesn't seem to work quite as well on Hulu as it should but that's because of the privacy controls not allowing some advertisers to stream their bits. I can use Safari for that because it doesn't seem to have much in the way of privacy controls.

Firefox as a general browser works wonders for me on a really old 2011 machine. Safe, fast and compatible. The only letdown I feel is older add-ons have lost support. That's a good thing though as Firefox evolving means better security and it's the add-on developers that need to update their software when Firefox changes. I feel verifiably safer using FF and every media site I use Soundcloud, Spotify, Netflix, HBO, youtube, vimeo and so on works fine as do all sites. If one doesn't, I add my own controls with add-ons to adjust things like presentation or scripts.
