Today I updated my Firefox Developer Edition to version 89.0b2 and now I just can not look at this browser anymore, "Inspired new tab design" is taking too much space and now became largest and at the same time least information-dense panel in my entire desktop! I searched around the web for a bit in hopes that I will find a theme or an add-on that will revert this particular change but no luck. I really want to revert to old UI look (at least tabs bar), there should be default theme or option to get back to old style. After some investigation I found userChrome.css but don't really want to install it (maybe this is actually the way of doing this kind of styling). Please help me revert UI design to old one.

When I right click on an image on the web I used to be able to click on "View Image Info" and it would give me information about the image, like image size and url of the image. After Firefox upgraded this is now gone. Can I get it back ? Is there a work around ? Not sure why that option would be removed.

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."

How can I submit feedback to the developers? I click Feedback in Help and get the new tab, sign-in labyrinth that goes nowhere fast and is frustrating beyond belief! Basically I want to complain about today's "New" Firefox Format - it takes up too much space on my screen - I hate it!

I just upgraded to the new release. There used to be a button with three dots toward the right side of the search/address bar. I used it to email a link to the current page. Two clicks and I'm editing the email. I don't see the button in this new release. How do I email a link to the current page? Ideally in one or two clicks.

The tabs, address bar, and bookmarks bar takes up too much of the screen, almost 2", while another browser I use is 1 3/8" wide. Would like to know if I can shorten that up. No need to take up all of that space.

The latest version of Firefox wastes too much space at the top of the window. Stuff is spread out too much. Also the drop down menus from the items in the Bookmarks Toolbar appeared to be double spaced. I will use another browser until this is fixed.

W7 HP 64B. After the recent v89 update I have to ask, "why" ? Why change to wire icons ? Why not give me that option instead of you forcing it ? Why make themes when they don't change to what I want ? Why make the margin at the top of the screen larger ? Why should I have to try and "about:config: , to change something back ? Why are you not aware of the people you are forcing to use Chrome ? Who are you taking "MY CHOICES" away ? Are you demonicrats ? Why should I continue to use FF, when you have no answers, just rhetoric ?

I just got a MISERABLE updated Firefox that increased the spacing in my bookmarks menu so it is essentially UNUSABLE with double or triple spacing requiring scrolling till one's arm falls off! Why is it us poor peons out here who just want to use our computers and the internet, and the Firefox they've used FOR YEARS, have to be subject to arbitrary UNNECESSARY changes made by some "developer", possible trying to justify his/her existence and/or is stir crazy in lockdown? win10 bookmarks on the right. FIX IT! And stop screwing up WHAT WAS WORKABLE! I'm not a "nerd" able to just manipulate stuff...I want MY FIREFOX BACK!

After an automatic update Firefox had a terrible surprise for me. A beyond ugly user interface. And NO WAY to fix this with a simple toggle switch back to classic mode. There are theme's available, but still it looks unusable to me. This kind of updates should be beyond Mozilla, maybe don't hire former Apple employees, the esthetics don't have to be " slick and modern"

So after a long fight with almost losing my plugins, saved tabs (100+) etc.. I downgraded successfully to 88.

Step 1 (Secure your profile) Open menu, Click Help, Click "More Troubleshooting Information" Go to the line which says, "Profile Folder" Hit open folder

Pay extra attention during these steps: Now you are browsing in your active profile. If you did this after upgrading to 89 version. Make a back-up copy of this whole folder!! Rename it back up.

Open the file "Compatibility.ini" with a text editor, and empty it. Save and close.

Download and install the previous version of Firefox, After installing don't forget to disable automatic updates.

If the profile isn't loaded, browse to "about:profiles" and find and select your profile to get al your plugins, tabs, favs, etc. back.

Its a terrible shame i need to write this down for people to avoid the frustration of a terrible update

The best help would have been, to not make the satanic update from hell. Been with Firefox from PC day one. If something works fine leave it alone. If improvements are needed make sure they are improvements. This latest update has been made by an agent provocateur, with the help of a saboteur. Someone who hates Firefox & wishes its demise. I have spent hours trying to sort it & have made some improvements. It will never be like it was before that criminal update. Firefox R.I.P. gone but not forgotten. You will always have a place in my heart. Why they murdered you we may never know.
