The new version, 89.0.1, has removed the contrast and separation of the tabs, making it hard to read now. Why?

I don't mean to be rude, but if you could get the decision-makers who authorize drastic changes to the appearance of the browser when a new release comes out to just stop "fixing" things that aren't broken, that would certainly satisfy me. I'm not picky about color schemes and "themes", but now the browser is difficult to read, and it wasn't before. I need to know how to restore the appearance of my browser to be the same as in the previous version, or I'll finally have to quit Firefox after all these years and switch to a different one. I don't want to have to do that, but I don't think I can manage to deal with this new hard-to-read low-contrast version. I'm sure someone thought this design looked "cool", and was therefore an improvement. I don't want to stifle anyone's creativity, but the browser I use has to be easier to read. Maybe the next release will offer a choice between the "look and feel" of the previous version versus this one. Thanks for considering my problem (and it is a problem for me), and I'll keep my fingers crossed.

scrolls on this computer: desktop Windows 10 Pro v 20H2 Firefox v 89.0.1

doesn't scroll on this computer: laptop Windows 10 Home v 20H2 Firefox v 89.0.1


What I've tried on the laptop so far (none of these solved the problem):

tried in a private browsing window

tried in Troubleshoot Mode

uninstalled Firefox deleted default profile folder (that was the only profile) deleted profiles.ini reinstalled Firefox

Starting from Firefox 88, and still in Firefox 89, the browser became exceedingly slow. Typing one line of text has a 4-5 seconds delay, and loading pages is even slower. I tried a new start, new user, refresh, etc., without success. Firefox 87 works fine on the same computer but 88 and 89 are annoyingly slow.

I run Firefox on Linux 4.19.0-16-amd64 with Debian 10, windowmanager Xfwm4, displaymanager lightdm

Any help?

Before the update, my bookmarks toolbox was permanently open on the left side of the screen. That was a perfect setup for me, as I use a lot of bookmarklets for time saving on sites I'm on frequently. Since the update, all I have at the top of the screen is Import bookmarks and Most Visited (top left) and Other Bookmarks (top right). I can open Other Bookmarks, and my bookmarklets are there, but clicking one closes the Other Bookmarks folder each and every time. This renders them useless for my purpose. Is there a way to reopen, and KEEP open, my toolbox? I've tried clicking the Keep Open option and selecting done, but that doesn't do what I'm wanting it to do.

Firefox causing double audio. Cancelling it allows one audio to continue, but stops the video part. Seems to only happen on Fox news since update. I can't figure out how to get an answer on this, or from this, unless it is to switch browsers. Too bad, I've run Firefox for a decade and liked it.

The last couple of days I've noticed that spellchecker is not working very well with Facebook comments. It seems to sometimes want to check only part of a word or do other strange things. I THINK it is only for the comments; it seems to be working ok when I write a post. Facebook is the only site where I've noticed an issue. Is this something that Facebook has done, or has an update to Firefox caused something to go wrong?

I have pulled up my about: config page for "spell" and am attaching a screenshot.

Thank you.

I have the latest version of Firefox & my windows 10 update automatically. After the last Firefox update this week I will be browsing a webpage and all of a sudden a Bing page is loaded over the top with a preformatted search term as though I was searching for that term. It's really annoying as I've always preferred Google anyway. When I search for something in the address bar, it loads a Bing page, but when I open a new tab it loads my preferred page, Google with Firefox. I don't have Bing selected as a search engine in my options. How can I get rid of it please?

When I open a new tab and then search, and then try to search with google then search option does not provide me results. or if I try to even open google through the tab, Firefox does not provide me any results. This started happening recently. I have tried clearing the cache and cookies and the issue resolves for a bit and then starts again. I even have removed and tried a fresh install of firefox and I am still seeing the same results. I need help as this is getting annoying.
