there seems to be no possible way for any software developer to understand that whenever you release an update that changes the interface of the software it only annoys people i am now searching for a usable downgrade and looking around for an alternative for firefox thx for replacing userfriendlyness with that smooth and simple layout

bringing back tab saver would perhaps change my mind despite the fact that my google search box and webadress box is now as wide as my screen witch is kinda useless not to mention ugly as fuck

why instal a theme if there is always shit in front of it

Chosen solution

The current Firefox release stores the toolbar customization as a pref in the prefs.js file in the browser.uiCustomization.state pref (see the about:config page).

You can look at the Classic Theme Restorer extension to restore some functionality that was lost with the arrival of the Australis style in Firefox 29.

You can check the settings of the CTR extension via its Options/Preferences button on the "Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Extensions" page.

waw thank you this indeed brings back the old stuff i know my question(/ventilation) is really low priority so thanks for the reply firefox remains my favorite :)

and apparently when i downgraded and added all those spaces and then upgraded again to try your solution it the stayed the same, so that's kind of a secondary way to bypass my issue

btw i really loved that tab saver add on, for me there is no better thing then to know that whenever i close the browser i could just re-open it the next day and continue with whatever i was doing without having to save stuff, i hope that that comes back in time anyway thanks again!
