I hate that this June Firefox update has double or triple spaced my Bookmarks drop-down menu. I had just the right amount of folders and links that could expand to the bottom of the screen and now it goes well off the bottom of the screen and requires scrolling back up and down to use the links I use for the office on the 24" screen. Worse, my Firefox syncs with my laptop at home so on that 15" screen its even an even worse problem. I can't find a way to close them all up the way they used to be. There was nothing wrong with the browser as it was. If anyone wanted a new look, they could select different themes rather than force this arbitrary update on all of us.

Have same problem - and getting frustrated with all the big spacing in menu bars. I wish developers would quite messing with it every time they come back from the bathroom with some half brained idea. SO - how do you suggest I save a bookmark to a specific folder? and I know how - but your "new version" puts the save button outside of screen - hidden behind task bar. PLUS - THE BOOKMARK FORM PREVENTS TAKING A SCREENSHOT!!!!! to show you what's happening

A couple months ago when Firefox did their first update the same thing happened. Someone posted a fix, but warned it wouldn't work when the next update came out - apparently this is it. Hopefully someone will post a new fix.

In Firefox 91+ you can no longer disable Proton and revert changes that come with this design via "browser.proton.enabled = false" on the about:config page. Best in Firefox 91+ is to set browser.proton.enabled at its default value true as the false setting can cause issues.

In Firefox 91+ you need to use code in userChrome.css to override changes coming with the Proton design.

You can use code in userChrome.css to modify the menu spacing.


Add code to the userChrome.css file below the default @namespace line.


@namespace url("http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul"); /* only needed once */

menupopup > menuitem, menupopup > menu {padding-block: 0px !important;}
*|*:root {--arrowpanel-menuitem-padding: 0px 8px !important;}
