Firefox 88 had icons and labels on the main menu and the context menu.  After Firefox 88, it's just labels.

Menu icons give instant visual cues, help speed up the act of finding the needed menu item, plus they help non-tech savvy users.

Idea: Please bring back the menu icons. Or, at least, give us an option to see them.


Removing the icons has become a persistent speedbump in productivity usage despite months of trying to get accustomed to it. It would be great to have icons in the menus again. Thanks

This is a really important feature to be needed as in waterfox there is a lepton theme that has it and it doesn't look the best but it feels the best

Yes, l would love to see these icons back!!

Seems a weird change when a lot of interfaces have icons to improve UX

They should be there but they should also be consistently applied. Either all items should have icons, or none. iOS Firefox does this:

I second that, but with color, having icons makes it much faster to find what you need specially if it was colorized.

Familiar face

The option to toggle on/off Menu Icons would be nice. I for one am a fan of the new Icon Theme for Proton, and I especially like the current Menu Icons on Android. Porting this over would be very nice indeed.

I am basically indifferent to this, but I would ask that if this is implemented, it not apply to the menu bar. Waterfox has this, and it looks really bad (imo).

Funny how i saw just a few options had icons i thought, "nice they adding icons now, hope they will do the rest of the options too" and then they remove it...

yes, 100%. please bring back icons or redesign

Icons should be togglable. You can even categorize it as an accessibility feature (because, indeed, it worked as one).

Mozilla's current branding is all about digital inclusion and bringing diversity into the internet, something I mostly I agree with, but it's kind of hard to believe that when the UX team decides to totally remove a feature which not only helps the majority of us, but it's specially helpful for illiterate people (which aren't that uncommon here the so-called "Global South").

My university is actually still running Firefox LTS 78 because of this feature going away.

Bring the icons back. It takes me twice the amount of time to find things on the menu because there’s like 600 items and every time I have to read through the labels. It’s not fun, I used to only have to look at a puzzle or whatever icon to find what I was looking for in a second. Icons are not just for decoration, they aid navigation as well.

+1 for the icons, I want them back.
