Is there anyway to restore the format (compactness) of the Bookmark Menus without setting the Automatic Updates to not automatically update and then downloading the 88.0.1 version? I hate to not have the Automatic Updates, for obvious reasons, but don't want to use the double space of the Bookmarks even more.

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?

First time I can say I HATE WHAT YOU DID. WHY????????????? is there NO option to use old browser settings and look? I have spent a whole day 'fixing' trying to fix the mess you made. I am visually impaired and all my settings are POOH GONE!!!! Who's idea is it to put this grey text on white background? Must be nice to have good eyes.

  PLEASE GIVE US UNDO option to go back.  So NOT up to your standards...must have hired the 5th graders to do the work.  MOST UPSET, NOT HAPPY AND VERY FRUSTRATED.
  And don't tell me to "look" at the ways to Fix it...I have.  Don't understand it as I'm not a 5th grader I'm in my 70's.

This latest update from Firefox is awful in my opinion. The tabs are ugly and blocky and too big and everything is spaced weirdly. The right-click menu is far bigger than it needs to be. This is all new as of the latest update. It appears Mozilla did one of those "changing something for the sake of changing it" updates which I detest.

Is there any way to revert to the previous update, when everything was normal? I tried searching through settings but couldn't find anything. Nor could I find an add-on to fix it. This is quite frustrating as I liked the compactness of Firefox but they broke all of that and made it ugly in the process.

Thank you for any help!

Recently, Firefox on Windows has started to add excessive whitespace (or grayspace, I guess I should say!) around the "Show All Bookmarks" item at the bottom of the bookmarks menu, and the "Open All In Tabs" item at the bottom of the submenu for each bookmarks folder.

Is there a preference that reverts this, or does it need something in userChrome.css?

The new update has changed the way my homepage looks. I want it back the way it was with the same colors. The most important part, my shortcut squares are too small. I'm old and need them back to the size they were.

I can't find a way to make them larger. Can anyone help?

With the new version 89 the row height for bookmarks is way too big and now I am scrolling all over the place. I had them all perfectly spaced to show all in my full screen without scrolling. Is there an adjustment where I can go back to the previous narrower height?

Firefox appears to have just updated. Now my bookmarks list is so long I have to scroll down to see everything. It looks like everything has been spaced out further, which I hate. It takes up was too much space. They were probably going for a more elegant, less cluttered look, but it just ended up making things more aggravating for me. There should be a way to adjust or turn off the spacing feature. Any suggestions?

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.
