Is there some way to reduce the white space / padding between bookmark and menu items in the new Proton interface introduced in Firefox 89? I don't have a touchscreen and all the extra white space just means more scrolling to navigate through my bookmarks.

The AskVG site has a 02-June-2021 article at https://www.askvg.com/tip-restore-old-classic-theme-and-ui-in-firefox-89-and-later-versions/ that explains how to disable all the new Proton interface changes in about:config, but is there one specific hidden preference / flag (e.g., browser.proton.toolbar.version) mentioned in that article that controls the spacing between bookmarks and menu items?

There is a also a companion article on AskVG titled https://www.askvg.com/tip-restore-compact-mode-density-option-in-firefox-customize-window/ with instructions on how to change two Density options (browser.compactmode.show and browser.uidensity) in about:config, but I have no idea if changing my density setting to "Compact" would actually decrease white space (padding) between bookmark and menu items.

How do I get rid of this crap? I either select a crappy system theme and everything turns a blinding white, or go back to the theme I usually use where everything suddenly is dark. How do I remove darkmode while retaining my favorite theme? I don't want dark mode and I certainly do not want to be blinded either. There must be a useless setting added to the about:config that I can disable.

Thank you.

Downloaded the new version, how do I uninstall it? It is garbage. There are big spaces between the tabs and the tool bars, the favourites are so far apart that my menu is 3 pages long, and the themes were designed by a 3 year old girl with a fetish for unicorns. The only people that will use this are uneducated millenial inbreds, who spend the entire day taking selfies and looking in a mirror. It makes windows 10 look professional!! How do I roll it back? I suppose there is always google spyware - chrome as they call it.

The new base system theme for FireFox is not accessible. I cannot visually tell when one tab shifts to another. Three's not enough contrast. There's no line that marks the shift from one tab to the next. I tried countless contributor themes and they're all lacking the same feature - a physical break between tabs. Fades on text are also not accessible. Please fix this issue!

I've used Firefox for years, and this is, by far, the worst update to date......

the newly upgraded version of Firefox 89 is horrendous!!! How did you manage to get it approved for "universal design" to make it "disability friendly"? I find it visually unfriendly, it does not allow for the level of adaptation some of us might need to make it more visually friendly and easier to navigate

please provide instructions for those of us who prefer to go back to version 88! or make additional changes to correct version 89 to make it more user-friendly like version 88 was......please!!!!

(and lesson learned, I will stop doing "upgrade/update available" if it's going to result in the horrifically unfriendly version I'm having to deal with right now )(or else you all are really trying to push people to Chrome and/or Edge, which I assure you, is not my preference)

please fix asap!!!

Hi Since being updated to Firefox 89 I have a problem with the System theme which supposed to change the color based on Windows 10 color scheme, but instead it looks like the Light theme. I did everything right in Windows's color settings so it must be a bug in the newly updated (Proton) Firefox. Best regards Georges Walther

After the latest update to 89.0, the UI changed somewhat and I'm having a problem with one of the changes.

The size of the picture of the icons has gotten smaller. Its hard to see what the smaller picture looks l ike as I have issues with my vision as I get older.

How can I increase the size of the icons and make the pictures fill the icon preview like they used to without that black border?

Preferrably if possible, I'd like to increase the size of the three rows of the text and pictues to be bigger as well if possible.

Thanks!

In Ubuntu 18.04, I bring up a new page, click in the search bar in the middle of the page. Then when I start typing it jumps to the address bar although I have already placed and preferred the search bar to the right. No! NO! NO!

I use Duck Duck Go but Google does the same.

It is bad enough that the upgrade was automatically loaded but on top of that, changing preferences including dumping my home page. Change privacy settings without asking ( to a lower level on top of that ).

Really POOR form.

I'm running F'fox 89.0 (64-bit) on Windows 10, and generally I like it and it is my default browser. But recently its previous colour scheme (Win 10 defailt) has been changed, and the top window border and all the tab labels have turned white instead of dark blue.

I find this most unuseable! I've tried tinkering with Options, and even installed the Firefox Color Extension, which didn't really help, and was most unfriendly to use, so I uninstalled it again.

I've also tried uninstalling the hole of Firefox and reinstalling it again, and even running a full Restore from System Restore, but none of this has helped!

Any bright ideas? - I don't really care what caused it, I just want my colours (sorry, US colors) back!

I have very recently upgraded to Version 89.0 (Windows 10) and I can't help but wonder why some key characteristics have been changed for the worse. The display format for the Bookmarks list is now spaced so large that my Bookmarks no longer fit on a single screen, and I can find no adjustment available to users. Also, the new tab screen no longer shows the image of the page, making the display less useful. What was broken in these features that Mozilla found a need to "fix" them? Is there anything a user can do to "undo" these changes?
