Why is Firefox determined to ruin our browser customizations? V 89 sucks!

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?

Yesterday, Firefox updated and moved my tabs bar up to the top of the window, and got rid of the button that lets me move them to the bottom. They used to be below the bookmarks toolbar which is where I like them.

Last time I could right-click the Tabs bar and there was a button called 'Tabs on top' which I could disable, and the tabs moved back to the bottom. But they got rid of that and I can't find where it's gone.

How do I make my browser display go back to the settings that it had on 2 June 2021? I am very unhappy with the last update which customized my browser. The look is awful compared to the last iteration. I was happy with what it looked like before. Whoever thought that the tabs belong at the very top of the page? This update is very aggravating. What do I change it back to what i had yesterday? I'm running Windows 10, and I think I have Firefox Version 89.0. Thank you.
