I've used Firefox since 2001. Twenty years I've been able to customize it like I want.
A few months ago I switched from ESR to Release channel because the release version could still be tweaked to the way I like it. Huge mistake!
Version 89 totally destroyed everything I like about Firefox! I use Firefox on a large monitor from my easy-chair. I NEED compact layout. Everything is zoomed anyway. I hate the new tabs! I ESPECIALLY hate the double-spaced bookmarks! I want to continue to use a custom CSS in "chrome" folder.
I switched back to the ESR channel (FF78) and had to re-tweak my about:config settings, reinstall and tweak add-ons and load hundreds of bookmarks to get the favicons back. Unique favicons make it much easier to differentiate between sites. Generic icons suck. Major hassle!
I will stick with Firefox ESR until it too becomes unusable for me. At that point, sadly, my decades long use of Firefox will come to an end.
I include two screen grabs that illustrate how I like my set-up. Note how easy it is to tell one tab from another.
Why "fix" what ain't broke?
