Firefox 88 had icons and labels on the main menu and the context menu.  After Firefox 88, it's just labels.

Menu icons give instant visual cues, help speed up the act of finding the needed menu item, plus they help non-tech savvy users.

Idea: Please bring back the menu icons. Or, at least, give us an option to see them.

Removing the icons has become a persistent speedbump in productivity usage despite months of trying to get accustomed to it. It would be great to have icons in the menus again. Thanks

Far more important (to me) than having, or not having, icons in menus was the recent simplification of those menus. Previously, menus were often very complex -- really, quite overwhelming and often redundant -- and recent moves to reduce and simplify options have been very noticeable. I personally don't need icons because I can browse the (now) sensible number of options and click.

If icons come back, that will be fine. But I don't need them, myself.

Yes bring it back it’s annoying trying to see my extension on Firefox iOS especially Adblock and such.

I just migrated back to Firefox and I miss the icons in the menu from previous versions. They made the UI look more user-friendly

You can use userChrome.css to add back icons as a temporal fix. Fox example, this one is very good: https://github.com/black7375/Firefox-UI-Fix

I'd like to see this implemented as an optional setting

To be honest, I really like the new menu with no icons, it feels much more clean, for me, it's like icons are just clutter

Where or where is my Homepage icon??? I had to save my Homepage in Bookmarks for crying out loud.  What a pain.

I total agree. This is the reason why I'm here. When I intent to submit a request that bring the menu icon back, I found your post. I still use Firefox 89 (on Windows because it did not work on Linux anymore) because I don't like the new design. It is ugly and stupid. I have to read all text on the menu to find the item I need instead to quick look at the icon. I attempted to switch to use Edge instead, but it doesn't have the separated cookie containers. I don't want to switch to another browser, therefore please bring the menu icon/context menu icon back.

Sincerely.
