I was happily on FF28. I have spent a couple of years fine tuning with addons to maximise the space on my small letterbox notebook. I have Nav Bar on Title Bar so as to use that otherwise TOTALLY WASTED SPACE. I had loads of add on buttons up there with it, and more on the bar at the bottom of the screen. It took years to get it just right.
Then I heard there had been some security updates since last I used my notebook, so I hit 'about FF'. It then loaded a totally alien THING that destroyed the whole lot! And presented me with an interface that gives me no chance in hell of recreating what I had. There wasn't even a bar at the bottom of the screen any more; all the wasted space at the top was back; most of my buttons were gone; a wide chunky tool bar was wasting space, and my tabs were all round edged and too deep.
Ruined my browsing, when I had a lot of work to catch up on.
Could find nothing on how to get my settings back, so had to do a complete system restore, and then spend hours redoing all the windows updates since my last restore point.
Thanks a bunch Mozilla for dumping this on me without warning. It seems to have screwed up Mask Me as well, so I'm no longer being prompted with email addresses and passwords. God knows what else it's screwed up that I've not noticed yet.
If FF is going to keep this awful new format, I will have to prevent any more updates. Is there a way to get security updates without getting this horrible new version at the same time?
