the icons changed on the home page, after the last firefox update.

I have vision difficulties and zooming in the the page does not help. I would either like to go back to the previous update, or a fix that would enable the icon shortcuts to remain where the color and words spread across each block

Maybe try this extension.

Hi gm4767, in Firefox 89, the design of the "Top Sites"/"Shortcuts" section of the built-in Firefox Home / new tab page changed from a larger "thumbnail" image of the site to a smaller site icon in a white box. Is that the change you're noticing in Firefox 92?

The temporary roll-back preference for that change is still in Firefox 92 (appears to be removed in Firefox 94 beta):

(1) In a new tab, type or paste about:config in the address bar and press Enter/Return. Click the button accepting the risk.

(2) In the search box in the page, type or paste newNew and pause while the list is filtered

(3) Double-click the browser.newtabpage.activity-stream.newNewtabExperience.enabled preference to switch the value from true to false

More info on about:config: Configuration Editor for Firefox.
