Firefox v89 disaster visually

This morning I got a message to install Firefox V89.0. Visually this was a disaster for me. The bookmark list is now vertically spaced much wider so I have to scroll up and down the list rather than point and click. The tabs at the top of the screen which used to be easy to differentiate now blur into one. Worse still there was no easy way to back out this upgrade while I found a workaround to correct these problems? I have spent a couple of hours now, researching, exporting bookmarks, uninstalling Firefox, restarting computer, re-installing the old version (v88), Importing bookmarks, finding the icons that were on the bookmarks have disappeared, kicking the cat (metaphorically speaking), reinstalling the new tab add-in, making sue auto update is OFF. Basically a huge pain.

Is there no easy way to rollback updates? especially when the user interface changes are so invasive?
