How much dissatisfaction was there with Hitler and especially with Hitler's leadership among top and prominent Nazis in 1943-1945? As in, were there any top and prominent Nazis in 1943-1945 who believed that Hitler was a hindrance to the German war effort and that Germany would be better off under new leadership? If so, who exactly were these Nazis?

Members of the July 20th plot to assassinate Hitler and take control of the government included:
General Henning von Trescow, General Friedrich Olbricht, General Ludwig Beck, General Friedrich Fromm, General Friedrich Goerdeler.
Opposition to Hitler also included Admiral Wilhelm Canaris, head of the Abwehr (German intelligence) and General Franz Halder.
Pope Pius XII issued an encyclical (1937) which was read during mass throughout Germany. It condemned many practices of the Nazi regime.

Yes, but what about among the top Nazis themselves? As in, senior Nazi officials and also SS men?

I do not think that there was any opposition by the highest tier of Nazi officials. They were fanatically loyal to Hitler.

Not in the later stages, both Himler and Goering were trying to do their own thing.

And the Nero decree was largely ignored, and Hitlers orders to destroy Paris where never acted on

As MG1962a noted, Goering and Himmler were actively plotting against Hitler by the end, so they couldn't have been that fanatical.

Please give examples of how they were plotting against Hitler.
Goering tried to replace Hitler in late April 1945 and was nearly executed for it.

Himmler was trying to conduct secret negotiations with the Allies through the Swedish Red Cross.
