Looks like 57b4 fixed the new gray bookmark folder 'inconsistency'.
The one I have on the Navbar now matches all the others.. in b3 it was still the old dull sand color.
@Does anyone know how to move that damn 'Chrome immovable' Menu/Hamburger button to the far left?

Nightly just completed should be on taskcluster and I assume update will come soon. I don't use the 'updater' as I do all by hand and only run Tinderbox builds. (too impatient)

Wow, that old huh? 2013, blast from the past.

I wonder if there are any examples to see this in action, so far I don't see much improvement.

Neither do I see much change... all steady so far.

yeah, this will solve it, but on the other side of the tab bar it causes issues with overlapping tabs and windows control buttons...

So it does,

Quickly tested, this seems to work fine.

Thanks Edds - Geobomatic.

I wonder, If Mozilla really wants to see their userbase increase, why Firefox is, afaik, the only Browser that doesn't have an import function, all the other browser I've tried all have some kind of import for bookmarks & logins from other browsers, admitted, in most of the cases these function only work partially or don't work at all, but at least there's an option to try. Why haven't they thought about this with Firefox ?

Uhh, that's in the Bookmarks Window.

Menu > Library > Bookmarks > Show All Bookmarks

In the window: Import and Backup > Import Data From Another Browser

Actually, I had more problems importing bookmarks into Chrome from Firefox (ended up having to export bookmarks from Firefox as HTML, and then use Chrome to import that HTML file, and I did report the issue to Chrome), but importing Chrome bookmarks into Firefox went quite smoothly using Omega X's method.

Thanks, I've never seen it, perhaps because it's buried so deeply, It only support importing from Internet Explorer here, so its value is close to zero imho, given the current browser users.

Anyone can reproduce (and perhaps file a bug report because I suck at explaining things) the issue please ?
Previously, direct links to .mp3 files offered a player interface, it seems to be broken now.

STR:
- Navigate to a direct mp3 file, for example : https://mp3s.nashownotes.com/NA-968-2017-09-28-Final.mp3
- The player interface is completely broken.

Odd. I've seen entries for both Microsoft Edge and Chrome Canary.

@Peja Stija I've just tried to reproduce this bug using your STR. Is that what you are talking about?
https://i.imgur.com/owERYTt.png

STR didn't work for me, I had to quickly click your link around 20 times with ctrl-click and only one of those 20 tabs had broken interface. Also, three Nightly users on a local russian forum reported the same problem when opening .webm files.
Sorry for my poor English.

Yes GHM113, that's exactly what I see too. Seems to be more consistent with me, I get a proper interface about once in every 5 tries.
