Just like how we used to be able to select "compact."

I understand that more and more people are using vertically oriented devices like phones and tablets, but there is still a huge market share of users on desktop devices, and with the market saturated by widescreen displays, taking up vertical space while having 4 inches of white space on the left and right side of practically every website makes no sense.

I switch between Firefox and Opera because I really enjoy the sidebar that Opera has as it makes much more efficient use of screen real estate.

@Maverick74 very interesting! and thanks for the visual...always helps. There's also a similar idea about merging the tab bar and address bar here: Make Address bar placeable to the Tab header

I've taken sometime to simulate how this would look like in Firefox.

Here's a preview:

Normal navigation:



After a double click on the desired tab:

I'll submit this on the other idea as well (since i don't really know where does this fits better...)

Hi everyone!
Using UserChrome.css I was able to merge the tab and address bar on the title, would you like to check it out? 😄

Eventually implement the discontinued Theme Font & Size Changer for Firefox and Thunderbird.

So we're at Firefox 110.0 and the Compact option that was available as recently as 108 has not been corrected. So I have uninstalled Firefox on all computers and other devices. There will be no more donations. IF you happen to correct this issue, let me know. Don't send Kudos's or attaboy's. All devices are on Chrome until I can come up with a viable replacement. Too many browsers out there that can be used. Maybe if you lose a couple of points of market share, you'll get the message. I'll check back a couple of times a year (just for grins) to see if this "problem" has been corrected. I would recommend getting this done BEFORE I find another comfortable browser to use.

UI elements size - Tabs and bookmarks head table

Hello, can we please get smaller squares for the head tabs listed on the top.

Basically they use way to much space from the screen, especially on smaller screen like laptops.

Some of the UI elements are way to big and disproportionate vs the rest, i used red to show them better.


It like much more as it used to be sometime ago, before the UI size increase.

I think it would be best to give us an option to increase or decrease the size of Mozilla Firefox UI elements. (either for each zone or all of it at once)

Thank you!

It would be nice if the Firefox UI was adaptive in general, and I don't mean the web pages. It would help those of us using a mobile Linux phone like Purism's Librem 5 or Pine64's PinePhone.

Currently, Firefox somewhat works but the experience is not ideal, with extension buttons being near impossible to use. Gnome Web offers a more pleasant UX, though it lacks the versatile features of Firefox.

Here is an example of what this looks like on a Librem 5 (This is not Android!):

Would still love to enable compact density without going through about:config first.

It would still be nice to be able to select 'compact' from the density selector again. I hate having to go through about:config to enable settings that should be standard.

Make toolbar fonts larger and make toolbars take up less space.
