This latest update makes everything gray on the screen and you can't tell one tab from another. How do you change the color scheme? Why'd they make it so ugly? And why didn't they put this answer on the home page?

I have this problem too. The new update is a complete chock. There is no visible border between the tabs and the background of the tabs is too transparent, which makes it difficult to work with the tabs, telling one from the other etc.

I've attached a screendump for your reference.

There should perhaps be a setting for selecting the background color of the tabs. In any event, it's really not a good idea to impose surprising changes to the user interface like this. After updates, users must be able to select the GUI themselves.

After the update to version 89.0, my non-current tabs are light gray and the text is lighter gray; the result is the tab text is unreadable (see attached image). How do I fix this while retaining the system theme?

Hi s.a.barker, There's a Firefox theme on the addons site called Photon Colors, which I found helps a lot.

Go to https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/photon-colors/ and click on Install Theme.

I have the same problem. I don't understand why they changed to a less visible color, and them, why there is not an easy way to return to old tabs colors

I am vision impaired and the latest update to 89.0 (64-bit) made Firefox almost unusable. The tabs should have outlines and be defined as separate tabs. Please revert setting to former view for those of us who are unable to use this version in its present condition.
