After updating to 89.0 the appearance of FF is horrendous. that light coloring, change of tabs, and etc. I want to revert to the color schemes I have before. How do I do that? It is so ugly, I will seriously go back to Google Chrome if I cannot; and that is a huge statement coming from me.

Latest update installed and lo and behold, once again Mozilla screwed it up. I now have one tab on the bottom of the page instead of many in a toolbar at the top of the page. Mozilla continues to ignore users' complaints about tab location preferences and other tab functionality and arbitrarily making decisions which for most people make no sense. This latest iteration of Firefox (89.0) is for me the last straw. I will no longer humor Mozilla by spending countless frustrating hours correcting your obvious lack of programming skills by attempting to return my browser to what it was prior to another faulty update. My patience has finally run out. Before I leave Mozilla and Firefox, one last comment. Because the Mozilla support forum relies on amateurs and volunteers to answer users questions, and since I have had trouble getting workable solutions to my problems, I tried to send feedback directly to Mozilla. That was a monumental task which I was not up to, obviously, which is why I'm here. Whatever good there is in Firefox is far out weighed by the lack of programming skills, beta testing, quality control, etc. prior to forcing out updates to it's users. Like many recent users I have decided to forego further use of the Firefox browser which is unreliable from a development team which does not seem to care. I am beginning to wonder if the continuing screw ups are being deliberately caused by embedded saboteurs from Google or Microsoft!

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.

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.

(it really is terrible now, and while i always promoted FF to whoever, I think this unwanted change makes me want to look elsewhere, sadly)

Firefox just up-dated itself to latest version after 88.01. And now, while the google search box appears in the centre of my homepage, like it has always done, as soon as I start typing into it, the search defaults to that horrible Chrome-like search bar at the top of the screen. How do Istop this? Or can I revert to my much loved earlier?

This is personal feedback regarding the new Proton look and feel.

Why on earth is the new look trying to allocate so much white space - Menu bar and bookmark lists now scroll forever due to the amount of space between each line.

To make it useable I'm now having to set

     browser.proton.enabled = false
     browser.compactmode.show = true
     Theme set to System Theme 

which reduces some of the white space, but not all of it. Spacing is not even consistent as can be seen by the different spacing now used between the bookmark side bar compaired to a bookmark dropdown list.

Please if you wish to provide a touch friendly theme do so, but do not make it the default for all users. I just about live in FireFox with hundreds of bookmarks and at times large numbers of tabs. This environment is accessed across many systems and screens (32" 4K all the way down to 8" 2K), non of which have spare screen space to be allocated to vast amounts of uncontrollable white space.

I've been on Firefox for 15 years, I suppose - it's really the only browser I've used. I've seen the product go steadily downhill, but I've stuck with it - because (until last week) Firefox had the best support for people with visual disabilities - like myself.

But 89 is the last straw. The new UX, the new setup for tabs is simply unusable for me - and I suspect for many with visual impairment. I can't even see the tabs distinctly.

It's a bloody shame. Firefox was a great product. Firefox - 20 or so versions ago - was better than anything else out there. But now.

It's unusable for me - and I'm sure many others.

I'm not saying this to gripe. I'm saying this so that, hopefully someone in Mozilla will change the strategy of a new release every ten days, and go back to a stable, usable, secure browser.

But it's a sad day.

The latest download changed the interface. I cannot see the top toolbars, tabs, etc. because they are a very faint grey. I did try changing the theme but not happy with the results. And when I type into the search box it jumps to the address bar which (I dislike immensely) is distracting. Why have a search box at all? But it is my preference so I may be out of luck.

This is the first time I have considered another browser as I have been with Firefox a long time.

Is there a way to go back to the interface I could use?

New theme is absolutely not contrasting. The font merges with the background, no separators are visible between the elements, although the tabs opposite are separated from the page. And a huge number of other annoying little things. You suggest choosing a different theme, but there are the same problems and an additional annoying background pattern.

Please make it possible to return to the classic theme and stop changing the interface and familiar controls. I am shaking from every update notification, because i expect everything will break again.

I also advise you to read reviews on news sites dedicated to this update. Many people unhappy with these changes.

I found a partial solution (about: config -> browser.proton.enabled -> FALSE ) problem, but as it became known, it will soon stop working.

I understand that FireFox a free product and I would shut up, but it upsets me that the tool that I have been using almost all my life has gone bad. And second, and even worse, the Internet is increasingly dominated by Chrome, remaining without competition.
