Puting the color scheme back the way it was before this latest update to 89.0

more options

I opened FireFox and it updated to 89.0 That's fine and all but it changed the default color scheme (They are themes now?) Well it's horrific to Me. I'm older and all the new "default" themes I can't see well and/or make My eyes hurt resulting in a headache. I just want it to look the way it did before the update without sorting through bunches of themes looking for one that is close.

Why would they do that in the first place? I mean themes are great for people that like that sort of thing but why not allow people to chose to change, rather than force a change and offer no option to just keep it the way it was? I mean it's a color palette not a security hole. Anyway, any help would be greatly appreciated.

Also, if this is the wrong place to ask this feel free to put it where it belongs.

Chosen solution

If you prefer the older Windows 10 "default" theme style of a dark navy background, a user has created an add-on theme to restore the color:

If you try that, let us know what you think.

Couldn't agree more. I now have a migraine thanks to this. Options would have been good. You can revert to the old version (I will be, and locking it in place by disabling updates). Security < Migraines.
