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

Please bring back ALL the menus, sub-menus, context menus etc label icons for FF macOS.

We humans are highly visual creatures. We rely heavily on visual cues.

5 facts about visual communication

  1. 90% of all communication happens visually.
  2. Our brain processes visual impressions 60,000 times faster than text.
  3. The human eye can differentiate approximately 10 million different colours.
  4. It takes only 13 milliseconds for the human brain to process an image.
  5. Visual images activate the right side of the brain such as imagination, colour and creativity.

Please bring back the menu icons, sub-menu icons, and context menu icons in both Firefox and Thunderbird -- and please colorize all of those icons by default.

The post written by FineWine provides excellent points to support this idea. He lists 5 facts about visual communication and provides a link to the source where he found them for appropriate citation credit.

The lepton CSS theme support menu icons and they whole theme looks way better than default Proton theme. I completely don't understand why Mozilla decided to remove menu icons.

Waterfox looks so good in this regard.


IDK why Firefox is evolving backwards in this regard.

I have to admin not having icons for visual navigation has made me far less efficient in navigating Firefox menus. I really miss the icons! I think of it as a similar navigation challenge that's similar to having a Address/Phone book on my mobile phone that does not have avatars (or pictures) of my contacts, ie- only has the contacts name. Much harder for me to find the contact without an image of the contact.

@Progress2000  Does Lepton work with macOS Firefox 116 ??

A long long time ago I used Mostly Crystal by Cat Thief's own FF makeover

I currently use for most of my tweaking along with my own userChrome.css.

@FineWineAccording to its Github page, it should support. I cannot confirm because I do not use Mac. I works on Windows. You should just try it.

I support this idea. It's more convenient for me to have icons.

These icons make the browser more convenient for the average user. They are important

Really support this. Preferably, put some colours on the icons as well to make it easy to differentiate between them
