Why are all the update versions worse than the previous version?
I want to know why the newest Firefox is complete shit it's like you went backwards instead of progressing and making it better. Stop changing the layout and features that people get use to using. I can understand security patches being updatable but the end user should have the option of just downloading certain features and security updates. You can't have users that are used to manipulating a version they like lose most of the features and layout they enjoy. Part of the reason I recommend Firefox to absolutely everyone I talk to is because it's the ultimate browser for the common and majority of users. That is until this last release that I kept getting messages saying I have to update I hate the new latest version with a passion and its starting to make Chrome or IE look like good alternatives when they never were before.

Firefox has come a long way since it was first released 16 years ago. In fact, technology as a whole has changed a lot over that period of time. The developers of Firefox try their best to keep Firefox the fastest and most secure internet browser on the website.
Recently, Firefox Quantum was released, giving some massive performance boosts to Firefox. This also came with some new UI changes that changed the look of Firefox. Naturally, as technology processes, things are going to change. It's understandable that not everyone likes change.
And of course, we never recommend running older versions of Firefox because they could be vulnerable to security and privacy issues that have been patched in newer versions of Firefox.
The people who answer questions here, for the most part, are other Firefox users volunteering their time (like me), not Mozilla employees or Firefox developers.
If you want to leave feedback for Firefox developers, you can go to the Firefox Help menu and select Submit Feedback... or use this link. Your feedback gets collected by a team of people who read it and gather data about the most common issues.
Is there a particular feature in the new version of Firefox that you have lost or don't like? The great part about Firefox is that it's highly customizable, so it's likely that you can tweak it to best suit your browsing needs.
