When are you going to update the UI of Firefox?

I got a donation email from you guys this morning and I was like, why should I donate to Mozilla? I mean seriously, as a designer who specializes in UX/UI I keep wondering why you guys haven't updated Firefox's user interface. It looks so old and stale. I was seriously hoping the new version would have a significant improvement to the interface design, yet it didn't. Those folders in the Bookmarks Toolbar look like something from 10 years ago. The gray gradients in the top bar of the browser are ridiculously outdated. Firefox needs a new UI, something fresh and up to date with the current trends in user interface design. So I ask you, when is this going to happen? Is this going to happen? Your response will decide whether or not I decide to contribute to your cause. Thanks!

PS. Feel free to pass this up the chain.

I mean, every time they've updated it since they ruined the UI with Australis it's gotten worse and worse, more like Chrome's dumpster-fire of a UI. And Quantum's is somehow even worse, approaching Edge levels of unusably bad. And seeing as Quantum breaks Classic Theme Restorer, it looks like FF 55 is the last version I'm ever using until they stop removing customization options and wrecking the user experience by forcing garbage, unwanted changes on us (I'm waiting for the day they kill the separate search bar, which will be the day I stop using Firefox forever).
