Fixing IMDb Name Page Redesign

So, nearly everybody hates the new name page design which is no surprise given the response to every previous design change (AKA regression). So, let's just fix it ourselves, shall we?

Here's a quick userscript to fix what I see as the largest problems with the new design: https://gist.githubusercontent.com/Quaraxkad/f19b6a021f6f8460e161e26727e4e9c1/raw/7cdd9c83eafd326845ec5a0a46d7d2df5fbcf5df/fiximdbnamepage.js

Tested in Tampermonkey 4.18.0 on Firefox 91.0.1. I'm not an expert in userscripts or javascript, I can't guarantee compatibility or even that it'll work for you!

The script should remove a bunch of junk, and restore the full text-based filmography table format.

Here's a before and after:

As a side note to the developers, who cite the backend of your software for necessitating this new design: You'll notice all of the above is possible without changing anything on your backend! It's almost like the frontend design is completely independent of the backend!! Stop using that as your excuse. You know very well you can upgrade the backend and *still* maintain a similar or even identical UI.
