Mozilla sent Firefox Version 89.0 to the release channel today.  The update includes eight security updates of which one (1) is rated high, five (5) moderate and two (2) rated low.

Firefox ESR was updated to Version 78.11.

Update

To get the update now, select "Help" from the Firefox menu, then pick "About Firefox." Mac users need to select "About Firefox" from the Firefox menu. If you do not use the English language version, Fully Localized Versions are available for download.

I adjusted to most of the changes, but there's one that I'm finding very annoying...

The "Bookmarks" drop down menu (in the Menu Bar), appears to have put more space between bookmarks. There's a LOT more scrolling involved.

Ensuring that "Touch" was turned off didn't help.

Is there any way to correct this?

Sorry, Pete.  I stopped using FF some time ago so don't have any suggestions.

It appears that extra space between items, has been added to all menus.
Not a problem for most of them, but way too many "bookmarks" end up off screen.

I hadn't noticed the spacing but I use a compact theme.
I guess you'll have to start putting them in folders so you have shorter lists in each folder.

I don't work on my bookmarks as often as I should but switching from Palemoon back to Firefox sort of forced me to do some work on them.

Try adding the following to the userChrome.css file

Code: [Select]
menupopup > menu,
menupopup > menuitem,
popup > menu,
popup > menuitem {
  font-size: 8pt !important;
  padding-top: 0px !important;
  padding-bottom: 0px !important;
}

If you aren't using a userChrome.css file, the internet if full of instructions on how to create it and where to put it. Or I could post step-by-step instructions if you need help.

Don't forget that with the new versions of FF in order to get userChrome.css to work you need to go into about:config and set "toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.stylesheets" to true

ps: The above modifies the Menu Bar drop down menus. Doesn't do anything for the Sidebars

Or you could go into about:config and set "browser.proton.contextmenus.enabled" to False

On another forum Plodr referred me to instructions that included that an more.
It even fixed some of the other changes that I was still adjusting to.
