The new update released hours ago has introduced problems that Google Chrome had, which is the very first reason in the first place that I left Chrome to get Firefox.

The menus have been made larger, with more clutter. This is especially apparent in every instance of bookmarks. The text and icons and space between the bookmarks have all been increased in size, making it more annoying and less clean to use, as well as looking unpleasant. No settings will allow me to zoom out on the menus or tabs or bookmarks. The tabs and the prompts have also been redesigned along with menus and it looks awful. I left Chrome to avoid the style and it has unfortunately followed me to Firefox.

Everything about this update has made the browser worse and more akin to Chrome, which I heavily dislike. I understand this is nitpicking and doesn't matter much. I still would like the old version back. Is there a way I can download the old version of Firefox anywhere? Heavy thanks to whoever reads and responds.

Good afternoon. My Firefox has been updated to the new version but I noticed that the font size in my bookmarks dropdown menu has increased. I would prefer to make it smaller as it used to all fit in one column without the need to scroll. Could someone tell me how, or if this can be done with the new version? Thanks and hope to hear back soon.

I REALLY dislike the new bookmark pull-down feature, which has larger fonts and far too much space between bookmarks. Now I have to scroll (for which I can't use the mouse) to get to the bottom of a long bookmark list. I prefer older versions.

How may I change the appearance of this feature?

So I got updated to version 89.0. I'm not entirely sure why we have to keep doing this. It looks different. Does it look better? Not really. Does it do something new that the previous version didn't do. Not that I can tell.

What it does do is scroll really badly. It's very jerky and it's giving me a headache. The previous version scrolled smoothly when I used the laptop's touch pad scroll section. (Like a wheel on a mouse but for a touch pad.)

I don't know why we have to keep "improving" things, without actually improving them and breaking what did work.

Is there any way to fix this? Other than Google Chrome?

I just downloaded and installed the latest update for Firefox and I hate it. The browser top bar is white and none of the tabs is readily readable. I looked to find a way to darken the background, but nothing changes that white bar. Please like Windows allow a "classic" setting that retains the older look.

just updated to version 89 the home button on the home page has disappeared.

Also can now only make a web search using the address bar or the search box added in the tool bar. However I have always had a web search box (Google) on my home page and typed my search directly into that. The box is still there and I can put my cursor into the box but as soon as I start to type the cursor moves up to the address bar.

I cannot see the point of having the web search option in the (Home) settings because even though I have it enabled in the settings and can put the cursor in the web search box on the home page, I cannot actually type in the web search box.

Any help would with these two issues would be appreciated.

Update 89.0 changed the browser theme to something I don't like, too pale and pastel. Options to change back to what I had aren't available. The options presented are now uglier than this sick looking theme.

How do I undo 89.0 update? Pretty much looks like (from release notes on another post) 89.0 has nothing at all to do with security and it's just someone at Firefox wanting to change things just for the sake of changing things.

I hope Firefox isn't going to start doing silly things like moving the first floor to the second floor and the second floor to the first floor just because some administrator feels like it.
