Update 89.0 changed the browser theme to something I don't like, too pale and pastel. Options to change back to what I had aren't available. The options presented are now uglier than this sick looking theme.

How do I undo 89.0 update? Pretty much looks like (from release notes on another post) 89.0 has nothing at all to do with security and it's just someone at Firefox wanting to change things just for the sake of changing things.

I hope Firefox isn't going to start doing silly things like moving the first floor to the second floor and the second floor to the first floor just because some administrator feels like it.

Latest update installed and lo and behold, once again Mozilla screwed it up. I now have one tab on the bottom of the page instead of many in a toolbar at the top of the page. Mozilla continues to ignore users' complaints about tab location preferences and other tab functionality and arbitrarily making decisions which for most people make no sense. This latest iteration of Firefox (89.0) is for me the last straw. I will no longer humor Mozilla by spending countless frustrating hours correcting your obvious lack of programming skills by attempting to return my browser to what it was prior to another faulty update. My patience has finally run out. Before I leave Mozilla and Firefox, one last comment. Because the Mozilla support forum relies on amateurs and volunteers to answer users questions, and since I have had trouble getting workable solutions to my problems, I tried to send feedback directly to Mozilla. That was a monumental task which I was not up to, obviously, which is why I'm here. Whatever good there is in Firefox is far out weighed by the lack of programming skills, beta testing, quality control, etc. prior to forcing out updates to it's users. Like many recent users I have decided to forego further use of the Firefox browser which is unreliable from a development team which does not seem to care. I am beginning to wonder if the continuing screw ups are being deliberately caused by embedded saboteurs from Google or Microsoft!

Firefox just up-dated itself to latest version after 88.01. And now, while the google search box appears in the centre of my homepage, like it has always done, as soon as I start typing into it, the search defaults to that horrible Chrome-like search bar at the top of the screen. How do Istop this? Or can I revert to my much loved earlier?

This is personal feedback regarding the new Proton look and feel.

Why on earth is the new look trying to allocate so much white space - Menu bar and bookmark lists now scroll forever due to the amount of space between each line.

To make it useable I'm now having to set

     browser.proton.enabled = false
     browser.compactmode.show = true
     Theme set to System Theme 

which reduces some of the white space, but not all of it. Spacing is not even consistent as can be seen by the different spacing now used between the bookmark side bar compaired to a bookmark dropdown list.

Please if you wish to provide a touch friendly theme do so, but do not make it the default for all users. I just about live in FireFox with hundreds of bookmarks and at times large numbers of tabs. This environment is accessed across many systems and screens (32" 4K all the way down to 8" 2K), non of which have spare screen space to be allocated to vast amounts of uncontrollable white space.

I need the previous Firefox tool bar appearance to see what is there. I'm thinking Revert to Firefox 88, or return to the Ff 88 appearance of everything above my site display. Ff 89's lack of tab outlines and type face contrast with the background now make me have to squint and lean far closer to the monitor than with Ff 88. I'm actually thinking of changing browsers to deal with this amazing lack of testing on older eyes before such a major change in visual 'ergonomics'. I'm guessing everyone working on new Ff versions is below middle age, and have zero conception of the visual issues everyone faces with age.

I've been on Firefox for 15 years, I suppose - it's really the only browser I've used. I've seen the product go steadily downhill, but I've stuck with it - because (until last week) Firefox had the best support for people with visual disabilities - like myself.

But 89 is the last straw. The new UX, the new setup for tabs is simply unusable for me - and I suspect for many with visual impairment. I can't even see the tabs distinctly.

It's a bloody shame. Firefox was a great product. Firefox - 20 or so versions ago - was better than anything else out there. But now.

It's unusable for me - and I'm sure many others.

I'm not saying this to gripe. I'm saying this so that, hopefully someone in Mozilla will change the strategy of a new release every ten days, and go back to a stable, usable, secure browser.

But it's a sad day.
