Been "surprise migrated" - now searching past history doesnt work as expected and can't find advanced config options?

I just got the big upgrade on Firefox. Totally unexpected migration. Unimpressed no warning. Now I need help finding 2 or 3 items that I use all the time, in the new UI.

1) Searching history URL/titles In the previous UI, I would type in the urlbar and get a list of all matching history pages. I had about:config sdettings to keep a long back history because I constantly refer back for work, and urlbar search history is perfect. In the new firefox, I can type "1234" in the urlbar, and I can see several items in the "history" tab which contain "1234" (and know there are dozens) but I might see none, or perhaps one, in the dropdown when I type it in the URL bar. Previously I'd see them all.

How do I search history and open tabs from the search results in the new UI?

2) config tweaking

Where has "about:config" or its equivalent, gone? I need to check my past long history isn';t lost or erased, and may need to extend it in a while by a few dozen. New URI for advanced settings? Please tell me there is still such a thing...?

Those are the immediate 2 migration issues I have hit, the second I open it.

Help really appreciated fpor this unexpected and unintended migrator.

I read in another post that it is impossible to undo the action, but is there anywhere the files are stored after firefox removed them? I use Huawei file manager to look for the files, and sadly they are gone. The pictures are also missing from the gallery, is there anything I can do to retrieve them? It is 2 years of items that are suddenly gone from my mobile, it is practically impossible for me to retrieve them otherwise.

Moving forward, can I revoke permission for firebox to delete items? Because normally on desktop, deleting downloads does not remove files...
