Does anyone know the earliest example of minhagim which are incorrect but
the Rabbis were unable to stop them?

Perhaps the best example of such a Minhag is Talking During Davenning.
Should this minhag continue since "obviously" earlier Rabbis approved them
and the communities were all holy?

But to be serious, I believe RaMBaM did his best to cancel the repetition
of the ShE by the Chazan - but he should have known better - one NEVER wins
an argument with a Chazzen.
