Awful bookmark spacing

I managed to restore the single-spacing for bookmarks, kept a prior version of FF, and fought off nags to update every time I opened FF . . . until now when I was tricked into "allowing this app to make updates to your PC". It wasn't the usual nag button and I thought it was some kind of simple bug fix, but no, I was "upgraded" to v. 100.0.2 and my bookmark spacing fix was overwritten. Furious isn't strong enough to describe my reaction. All this time, and all the other complaints, yet I find no way to decrease the excessive spacing between bookmarks. I understand that this design may be better for those who use a finger on their screens, but what about us mouse-pointer users? Why are we so disrespected? What can I do to decrease the space between bookmarks?

In the Firefox 92 release you can only reduce the menu spacing via userChrome.css. In Firefox 93 and later releases support to reduce the menu spacing via "Density: Compact" on the Customize page has been added. Note that "Compact" is no longer present by default as a Density choice in Customize.

Did all that. Nothing changed. Space between bookmarks stayed wide.
