There's no incentive to replace an existing tool with some other tool unless
it can do equally well what the old tool did and does in its current state.
It may be free as in "FOSS", but relearning is not free.
(as you wrote in another paragraph) to a QupZilla with default
you made almost no attempt at customizing?
That isn't what I did. I went through all QZ settings I could find trying to
find every possible one that would make it work, including UI layout, as much
a possible like the tool I'm used to using.

a) right-click on a button or an empty space of the main toolbar, "Menu Bar"
That's what I did on the intelgfx F24 installation I was using at that time
that produced no observable effect. It turns out what I was apparently up
against was that the target areas are so tiny that I kept missing them.
Eventually I got a hit in an appropriate spot.
If you uploaded your screenshot as a lossless PNG rather than a very
quality JPG, I would also be able to analyze the rendering differences in a
better way. (Right now, I cannot see what, if any, anti-aliasing is being
done in either case, because the JPEG artefacts eat it all up.)
Nothing relevant to seeing that a material difference existed between them
was lost by exporting to jpg to shrink the filesize.
ATM, trying compare on my latest updated F25 installation is broken:
1-Newly installed, so with a virgin profile, QZ won't open any web pages, and
crashes trying to coerce it into doing so. The only way I can get any URL
into its urlbar is to type it into prefs as home page and make QZ startup
showing the home page. It's reload/stop button doesn't do anything.
2-Now that it's being built with GTK3, Firefox latest UI is unusable in
Plasma, absent some available theme I don't know exists that would make it
obey DE font settings.
3-Same screenshot demonstrates that what I previously mentioned about FF
scrollbars being too narrow actually applies to the whole of Plasma. The
scroller in the X-Server window is much too narrow, but then all button icons
are too small too. Look & Feel is set to default F24. Desktop them was set to
Air, but switching to F24 doesn't help. Neither does Oxygen.
