> another Firefox update
< they broke the GUI again
What the fuck were they thinking? I can't even tell the active tab apart from the inactive ones, they look the same.

They also fucked up the scroll bar and on some sites it's just a single colour? I can't actually see the position??

I fixed the scrollbar by setting widget.non-native-theme.enabled to false. It also changed the forms and input elements back to GTK style.

Keeping up with Firefox's suicidal design changes is a suckers game.
Problem is Firefox 78 ESR is end-of-life in October 2021, and the next version is 91 ESR.

By 91 they'll have removed all the options to undo the damage, which means it will be pozzed forever.

Don't use Firefox forks if you care about your privacy.

Not any better tbh. And Pale Moon dev appears to be self exploding, banning extensions and shit like that.

Somebody tell me how to bring back the restore tab functionality by click on those > arrows

You could undo closed tabs easily but now you have to go to history and click on closed tabs

What about MS Edge?

Guys is Firefox Sync the best alternative to Chrome's sync between your laptop and phone?

Does edge do better laptop to phone syncage?

As opposed to all the even worse alternatives, right?

>Not any better
Let's see here, one browser has a customizable interface, tons of extensions, and less spyware. But sure, because it's not perfect it's "not any better".

Librewolf.

>LibreWolf is designed to minimize data collection and telemetry as much as possible. This is achieved through hundreds of privacy/security/performance settings and patches. Intrusive integrated addons including updater, crashreporter, and pocket are removed too.

I personally don't see much difference between Firefox's current UI, it's a fucking browser, it has tabs and a menu. On the extensions side, there's no Vimium, no open in mpv, no keepassxc extension, no don't accept webp. Has a dev who decided to block AdNauseam. And Firefox's spyware can be disabled. Now on top of that it also renders sites worse, so I don't really see why would I ever use that. At this point Pale Moon is basically Mozilla-lite.

Ok, shill. Ungoogled Chromium is the best if you don't want to be easily tracked for using unique Fireshit forks.

 No.8969

>>8968
Librewolf and Icecat aren't proper forks, they just change the branding, ship some extensions and switch some user.js options so you don't have to be vigilant about new telemetry being added after you manually make your own .js. Should be identical to proper FF as far as websites are concerned.

Idk now that I've been using this for like 2 days I kinda like the new UI, it's not amazing but it's alright, not worse than was before

Is fennec on android good?

 No.8997

>>8995
Fennec was amazing, but it's long since discontinued.
Firefox for Android was good, but it jumped the shark hard last year.
The usual mozilla bullshit. Remove useful features, make horrible management driven design choices.

>>8997
What do you mean discontinued? I use it daily, I get it from f-droid

 No.9002

>>9001
Looks like that browser's full name is "Fennec F-Droid".
Probably the best of limited choices.

 No.9003

>>8973
I re-enabled native widgets and it's bearable. I see people complain about floating tabs but I don't notice that as the selected tab's colour and the background colour is almost the same. Now the most annoying thing is that they added "New tab" to the top of the right-click menu for tabs where reload used to be and I keep clicking it.

 No.9004

It's just rebranded Firefox.
