How do I change my color scheme back to the original? Firefox upgraded my system (June 5, 2021) and the new color scheme is terrible. I want what I had yesterday. "Tools-Addons-Appearance- default setting" is an old instruction and path, and is not applicable in this version.

I deplore the way the browser looks now and want the old look back... I have vision problems and am totally ignorant about computers. I finally found FF and the last version was PERFECT. I could clearly see it, knew how to use it, and LOVED it and I WANT IT BACK. SIMPLY... Because I am so ignorant, the instructions I have seen so far might have been written in a foreign language. Is there a SIMPLE way to restore the OLD LOOK and feel. Keeping all the new security and other stuff is fine...although I was fine with the way it was, but I will have to find another browser if someone cannot help me fix the image back to the way it was. Please, why do they upgrade this stuff and not leave a way to keep the old look for those of us who don't want to change? If anyone can help me...I would really appreciate it. Thank you.

I have spent an hour of my work day trying to fix what you broke!!!!! I don't have time for this crap!!!!

  • I am not a programmer. I don't want to have to manually change code.
  • I want to run my business. Not fiddle with changed browser settings

Appearances didn't need to change. Where are the Tab borders. Tabs were contrasted against the menu bar. There were 3 dots in the address bar for a pull down that included Screenshots and Print Preview. ALL THIS IS GONE!!!!!!! WHY????? Fix it or do I need to find another browser?

I would add a screen shot but I CAN'T you took that ways too!!!!

Is there some way to reduce the white space / padding between bookmark and menu items in the new Proton interface introduced in Firefox 89? I don't have a touchscreen and all the extra white space just means more scrolling to navigate through my bookmarks.

The AskVG site has a 02-June-2021 article at https://www.askvg.com/tip-restore-old-classic-theme-and-ui-in-firefox-89-and-later-versions/ that explains how to disable all the new Proton interface changes in about:config, but is there one specific hidden preference / flag (e.g., browser.proton.toolbar.version) mentioned in that article that controls the spacing between bookmarks and menu items?

There is a also a companion article on AskVG titled https://www.askvg.com/tip-restore-compact-mode-density-option-in-firefox-customize-window/ with instructions on how to change two Density options (browser.compactmode.show and browser.uidensity) in about:config, but I have no idea if changing my density setting to "Compact" would actually decrease white space (padding) between bookmark and menu items.

Firefox 89.0 update has doubled the row space between bookmark folders and bookmarks. A previous thread suggested using about:config, browser.proton.contextmenus.enabled but that has not fixed/changed anything. The additional spacing between rows adds nothing, improves nothing and slows down selection of bookmarks. Hopefully this will be fixed.

Dear Firefox developers: stop changing shortcuts which users have used on a daily basis for YEARS! It is like you are making fun of users, always changing. After the last update, I cannot find how to take screenshots, the link vanished from where it was.

I had to search where you put it. It was very well where you put it before, why do you have to always change? Is this a type of game? Stop doing it!

Is there anyway to restore the format (compactness) of the Bookmark Menus without setting the Automatic Updates to not automatically update and then downloading the 88.0.1 version? I hate to not have the Automatic Updates, for obvious reasons, but don't want to use the double space of the Bookmarks even more.

Help, how can I go BACK to the last version of Firefox?? I HATE Version 89. Not only do the new tabs all blend in with each other because they're all the same color, but they're placed lower in the screen and add a strip of unused dead space along the top of screen, which means the content I want to see is all pushed down into a smaller, squished space. Arg - already getting high blood pressure trying to navigate it!

I really dislike the new version of Firefox - as with everything these days, it seems to be tablet/phone-oriented whilst I continue to be a PC dinosaur.

For example, some websites are now showing up with hefty vertical borders ... and particularly annoying for me is the leading (i.e. vertical spacing) on the dropdowns, especially Bookmarks which I use frequently. The fact that it's so much 'spacier' means that I have a lot more scrolling down to do!

I've stuck with Firefox through thick and thin over many years now, but if there isn't some way to change this - or revert (permanently - i.e. not to be thrown into the air again at the next update) - I'll be seriously thinking of jumping ship to the evil Chrome or Edge.

Any advice welcome!
