Quite the reverse with Firefox. It didn't make many changes to the engine part of mozilla (xpcom+xul) and was mere UI "debloatization". Most advances FF made in terms of rendering and leanness are inherited by mozilla suite which is as responsive as FF nowadays.

This actually proves that incremental changes when properly planned can put a downward spiral projects back on track.
