I use portableapps FF on windows 10. I just updated to 89 from 82 and now all my menus in the toolbar (i.e. my bookmarks as folders) now are much longer due to extra space between each item. Where I didn't have to scroll before I do now.

How can I change it back to what it was before so the pulldown menus I've tailored with no scrolling required will again work as before.

I have gone back to 82 because of this.

Here's the posted "fix" for some of the UI disaster. Fingers crossed they don't tear this option away from us. Good luck!

(1) In a new tab, type or paste about:config in the address bar and press Enter/Return. Click the button accepting the risk.

(2) In the search box in the page, type or paste browser.proton.enabled and pause while the list is filtered

(3) Double-click the preference to switch between true (new design) and false (old design)

Thanks so much. When I tried changing that, it didn’t work at first. Then I tried it a 2nd time and I noticed 5 or 6 others that showed up by entering only browser.proton and when I toggled them, it worked.

Thankfully with the portable versions, I can even run both side by side on 2 monitors. Everything looks pretty close now except the menu font is slightly thinner or something as it looks less dark, if that makes any sense. Any idea about how to fix that?
