How to fix Firefox so that it uses the default (globe) icon for all un-visited bookmarks, as it did before?

Using YouTube for example...

Previously, when I bookmarked a page/video (URL), if the newly bookmarked page (URL) had previously been visited, the bookmark would be displayed in the Sidebar (or Toolbar) with a typical "YouTube Play Button" icon (favicon). But, if the newly bookmarked page (URL) has never been visited, then the bookmark would be displayed in the Sidebar (or Toolbar) with a default "Globe" icon (favicon).

I almost always create bookmarks by dragging links/URLs from the browser client area to a folder in the bookmarks list in the sidebar (and sometimes/rarely, to a folder on the Bookmarks Toolbar). But the same happens if I manually create a new bookmark to a "Visited" or "Un-visited" page.

Recently, this behavior just changed "without notice"...

Now, when I drag a link/URL from a the "Recommended videos column" on the right side of a YouTube page/video, to the bookmarks list in the sidebar, the bookmark is ALWAYS displayed in the Sidebar (or Toolbar) with a typical "YouTube Play Button" icon (favicon), regardless of whether the page had previously been visited, or not. Also, existing bookmarks for un-visited pages that were previously created, and were previously displayed in the Sidebar (or Toolbar) with a default "Globe" icon (favicon), are now displayed in the Sidebar (or Toolbar) with a typical "YouTube Play Button" icon (favicon).

How can I bring back the previous behavior of displaying bookmarks of un-visited pages/URLs in the Sidebar (or Toolbar) with a default "Globe" icon (favicon)?

I've noticed this issue happening randomly, some of my toolbar bookmarks listed on the sidebar just up and disappear from view. As if they were never there. But I know they're still saved because when I click to Manage Bookmarks and check them there, they show up fine. The toolbar just randomly hides them for whatever reason, and I can only fix it by closing Firefox and opening it again.

I'm on the current version. I remember accessing about:support and clicking on Verify Integrity while trying troubleshoot some other issue, but don't know if that could've caused it though.

Hello, I am using firefox 83.0 and I don't want to update it (Why? Because I've an old PC with poor hardware and the playback of online videos is lagging/shuttering in releases after 83.0)

BUT firefox 83.0 doesn't support private fields which make some webpages unable to be loaded. the private fields was supported starting in release 90.0 and I'm using 83.0

So, I need a way to make firefox 83.0 support private fields, Is that possible? Is there a certain files should I edited or replaced to make it support private fields?

Any ideas would be appreciated.

Ok, so it might just be a coincidence or not. But after an update on my portable version of FF, when I go to youtube.com I get lots of blank bits. (See 1st picture)

Can't click on any of the elements.

I've cleared youtube cookies, signed out, signed back in. Still the same.

New Private window does the same.

I haven't found any other sites/pages behaving badly.

Chrome displays youtube fine (See 2nd pic), so it's not youtube.

Any help would be great. Thanks. j

I recently logged out of Firefox and cannot log back in because the process requires an authenticator app, which I have no clue which would work. I have MS Authenticator and Google Authenticator but neither of them bring up any codes sent from Firefox. What on earth can I do? Delete my account and then create a new account with that same email again? However, I can't do that, because I can't login! I'm presently login with another email address, which is how I am posting on this forum. Thanks for your help.
