Firefox's Orange-colored Tabs
In shutting down and restarting the computer yesterday, it seems that an upgrade, or some sort of change, took place with the Firefox program. Now the tabs are a bright, loud orange in color, causing the appearance of individual tabs to melt together. In addition, the scroll bar is a tomato soup orange. I just want to return to the former eye-friendly colors, which never drew my attention. Now I almost dread having to log on it is so severe. Please tell me exactly what steps are needed to return to the former palge look. Thank you.

It is possible you selected one of the Colorways themes that are included in Firefox. You can find the built-in themes (light, dark, system) and further down the Colorways themes included in Firefox on the "Add-ons and Themes" page (Ctrl+Shift+A; Themes tab).
Thank you for the reply. I have only a flip phone and cannot use QR codes, which sometimes appear for further help. In the interim, something that looks almost identical to a tab but isn't, and is positioned to the farthest left side of tab locations with a Firefox insignia, opens a window titled 'Firefox View' with sub-headings 'Tab Pickup' / 'Recently Closed' / and based on the color I have chosen 'Activist'. This is not a tab and has no url, which means I can't (or don't know how to) copy and send a link to that page However I did save it as a 'Bookmark', in case I ever need to access it. By finding this page I was able to modify the color scheme, even though I don't seem to be able to fully eliminate the color, or to return to the previous format. Thank you.
That is the new Firefox View button. You can right-click this button and click "Remove from Toolbar" to move it to the Customize palette.
How do I 'right'click' a button with a laptop that has a mouse-pad? I haven't had a computer mouse for 9 years.
How do you open a context menu on that device ?
You can open the customize window and drag the Firefox View button to the Customize palette.
