Little bits of pieces would break off when I connected them to others or took them off.

Okay so I finally looked it up, it appears that they have indeed fixed the problem, I guess I just have a lot of brown pieces from before 2017. Here is a theory from Reddit as to why the pieces are/were so terrible:
