According to the release info for the latest update (Version 92.0):

"The bookmark toolbar menus on macOS now follow Firefox visual styles."

I have no idea what that means or how to fix it! All I know is that the lists of bookmarks I have saved under toolbar tabs are now all double-spaced. I don't want them double-spaced — that makes all the lists twice as long! I just want them the way they were before the update . . . HELP!!!

Currently, there is no built-in way to tighten up the spacing. Making that possible is one of the most popular ideas on Mozilla's new "ideas" site: https://mozilla.crowdicity.com/post/720482

There is work under way to tighten up the bookmark menus that drop from the main and bookmarks toolbar. In Firefox 93 (next release), the optional Compact density setting will do that. Here's a preview from the "Developer Edition" (based on the beta test version of Firefox 93):

However, Firefox 93 isn't scheduled to release until early October.

Until then, what support volunteers can suggest is limited...

Unofficial Community-Supported Workaround

Firefox users can modify the user interface of the browser using custom style rules. This involves setting up a userChrome.css file. If this is your first time, make sure to set aside 10 quiet minutes to work through it.

DISCLAIMER: Modifications made through a userChrome.css file often stop working as Firefox evolves in new releases, and occasionally "break" the interface in serious ways. That said, the rules for menu spacing are pretty simple.
