Just upgraded to v. 91.0.1 and now the tabs bar, search bar, and bookmarks bar have no more delineation between them. Everything is just floating (see screenshot). Also, for example, in the search window, there is no border to the window; there should be a visible box around it. And the theme I used in previous versions (it was called Soft Aqua) seems to have disappeared. It is so frustrating to have the interface change so dramatically every few updated versions. I am a retired graphic designer, and there's a reason to have borders, colors, etc. used to help direct the eye. One shouldn't have to search through a bunch of labels floating on white space. Anyway, I'd appreciate some help. Thanks.

This could be a problem with High Contrast Mode on Mac. See "New" in the release notes. Firefox now automatically enables High Contrast Mode when "Increase Contrast" is checked on MacOS in the Accessibility settings.

Make sure you allow pages to choose their own colors.

  • Settings -> General: Fonts & Colors -> Colors: "Override the colors specified by the page with my selections above"

Try "Never" if the default "Only with High Contrast themes" isn't working.

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 with checkboxes.

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