Sorry to rub salt into old wounds but this quote from a 2014 support post expresses my feelings exactly:

"What's the point of a 'tab' if there's no tab? Text floating around at the top of the page is not a tab."

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?

Firefox just released an update changing the browser's look, and it clashes hard with my computer's theme. I wanted to ask if anyone could help me restoring firefox's previous version/removing this update, or at least blocking the aesthetic changes forced by the update. Thanks for any and all help.

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.

Hello i just made the update from version 88 to version 89 and i noticed, that the design of the Tabs was changed. Also the coulor of the title bar does not longer match my windows theme. I looked trough the new design and i must admit that i does not like that minimalism style at all. Is there any way to get atleast the colour of my title bar back to my normal Windows setting?

I just used pacman to update to the latest Firefox, but the tab crashed each time I open a new web page ( I can open settings, about:xxx and etc... ). I tried Troubleshoot Firefox crashes and it did not crash in troubleshoot mode. Then I tried extensions, themes and hardware acceleration issues to solve common Firefox problems https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-extensions-themes-to-fix-problems but non of these options solved the problem. I disabled all extensions, themes and hardware acceleration, and it reported the same error.
