Can I Decrease White Space (Padding) Between Bookmark Items in FF89?

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.

Is there no way to save tabs each time I now close my browser? I don't want to bookmark them as almost all are not to be saved. I used to close my browser and be able to reopen the save tabs when I started my browser the next time, now I can't, it's totally crippled my abilities online and what I am using my browser for and leaving me lost now.

Trying to submit a review on Hunterfan.com using Firefox is not possible. Despite turning off such "Privacy and Security" settings as "Permissions->Block pop-up windows" I still get the warning "Disable Ad-blocker to submit a review" and can never submit the review.

This has also happened on other web sites where I was submitting a feedback, or support request form and has necessitated using another browser to do so.

QUESTION: what security setting do I need to change when trying to submit input to such sites?

I'd like to remove excessive whitespace between UI items.

How do I reduce the height of menu items, the toolbar, and the tab bar to something closer to the height of the text and icons, instead of nearly twice the needed height?… (read more)

How do I reduce the height of menu items, the toolbar, and the tab bar to something closer to the height of the text and icons, instead of nearly twice the needed height?

The title bar and menu bar are correct, as shown in the screenshots (this is the account with the most bookmarks). Both the bookmarks and history menus run into the bottom of the screen before showing a reasonable number of items, which is where the problem starts impacting productivity.

I found a discussion of a previous problem, dated 5/29/2021, but it ended with handwaving about "editing css" and "keep me posted", i.e. the problem wasn't solved. If I need to edit userchrome.css or some other related file, I'd like to know what file to edit, what lines to look for, and what to change them to.

On the Total Adblock site it gives these directions for removing the program: "Mozilla Firefox Uninstalling Adblock from your Mozilla Firefox browser is very simple and can be done within a few clicks. Go to the Extensions Page on Mozilla Firefox copy this link into the address bar of your browser:about:addons

Find Total Adblock within your plugins . Click the 3 Dots. Click Remove."

I do not know where the "extensions page" is. Nor where to find it. While I have been using personal computers for decades, I am still a complete beginner when it comes to any technical jargon. If someone would kindly give me directions in English about getting rid of this annoying extension/program? I would deeply appreciate it.
