to keep things short im trying o find a way to revert to before the most recent update (89.0), the new layout and organization changes are more or less causing no end of issues for me both in function and causing my anxiety issues to spike from everything being unfamiliar and i need to find a way to revert.

How do I change my color scheme back to the original? Firefox upgraded my system (June 5, 2021) and the new color scheme is terrible. I want what I had yesterday. "Tools-Addons-Appearance- default setting" is an old instruction and path, and is not applicable in this version.

I have spent an hour of my work day trying to fix what you broke!!!!! I don't have time for this crap!!!!

  • I am not a programmer. I don't want to have to manually change code.
  • I want to run my business. Not fiddle with changed browser settings

Appearances didn't need to change. Where are the Tab borders. Tabs were contrasted against the menu bar. There were 3 dots in the address bar for a pull down that included Screenshots and Print Preview. ALL THIS IS GONE!!!!!!! WHY????? Fix it or do I need to find another browser?

I would add a screen shot but I CAN'T you took that ways too!!!!

I deplore the way the browser looks now and want the old look back... I have vision problems and am totally ignorant about computers. I finally found FF and the last version was PERFECT. I could clearly see it, knew how to use it, and LOVED it and I WANT IT BACK. SIMPLY... Because I am so ignorant, the instructions I have seen so far might have been written in a foreign language. Is there a SIMPLE way to restore the OLD LOOK and feel. Keeping all the new security and other stuff is fine...although I was fine with the way it was, but I will have to find another browser if someone cannot help me fix the image back to the way it was. Please, why do they upgrade this stuff and not leave a way to keep the old look for those of us who don't want to change? If anyone can help me...I would really appreciate it. Thank you.

Just updated to latest Version 89.0. Rebooting the PC all of Firefox's colors changed to terrible washed out colors. Reading other inquiries I tried running the extension "Firefox Colors" but it didn't help. How do I reset to original default colors? Sincerely, DDBob.

Firefox 89.0 update has doubled the row space between bookmark folders and bookmarks. A previous thread suggested using about:config, browser.proton.contextmenus.enabled but that has not fixed/changed anything. The additional spacing between rows adds nothing, improves nothing and slows down selection of bookmarks. Hopefully this will be fixed.

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.

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.

Dear Firefox developers: stop changing shortcuts which users have used on a daily basis for YEARS! It is like you are making fun of users, always changing. After the last update, I cannot find how to take screenshots, the link vanished from where it was.

I had to search where you put it. It was very well where you put it before, why do you have to always change? Is this a type of game? Stop doing it!

Help, how can I go BACK to the last version of Firefox?? I HATE Version 89. Not only do the new tabs all blend in with each other because they're all the same color, but they're placed lower in the screen and add a strip of unused dead space along the top of screen, which means the content I want to see is all pushed down into a smaller, squished space. Arg - already getting high blood pressure trying to navigate it!

I'm absolutely furious about behaviour of tabs in the latest firefox update. I haven't change anything and I cannot play youtube videos and I've been able to do it normally until this last, bloody update! I've tried to disable media.wmfv9 or some other crap and it didn't work. I've tried anything in terms of mozilla support and it didn't FKN worked!!! I cannot stand another "oops, your tab has crashed" or "oops, firefox just eat ur ram and doesn't give a damn about them features, please restart it". You have like 2 weeks to fix it or I'm migrating to comodo dragon. FK U EOT. Just fix it.
