The latest version of FF 30 became so unpopular, at least, I really feel repugnant ! 1. the border among different tabs are not clear, even worse the unselcted tab titles are not easy to read as they are displayed not apparently as previous FF versions, such as FF28. In stead, the Mozilla website offered hundreds of colorful skins, weird buttons for us !!! Sorry, I really do not get it. I REALLY DO NO KNOW why you developers offer those useless skins for us !

2. The most favourite function of the status bar is lost, and could not appear again !!! My habit is using upper tool bar for the management of tabs, the status bar for the management of webpages. In stead, the Mozilla website only told us, based on the safety consideration, it is not safe to use status bar, it is for our users safe concern.

Let me tell you the REAL REASON I chose FIREFOX: Concise, Fast, Designable. Not because it can change skin color !!!

I have read some other users complain about the stupid and disgusting FF 30 version. And one of your developer claimed that you developers have discussed and changed those features of FF seriously. And in the name of safety, you developers did those. OK, let me tell you what I think : 1. The customer's feeling is always the MOST IMPORTANT THING for a product !!! You developer did not give us a choice, and just "think for us" and removed those feactures in the latest version, and offered us a bunch of rubbish skins for us to make fun and hope us would enjoy your new product.

2. If you developers think you CAN CHANGE our customers using habits and TEACH us what is good and what is right, I would tell you I prefer to change to some other kinds of browser.

3. Do you guys really think it is necessary to update so FAST ?! The main success for the FF is because it is designable as the add-on feature. Countless add-on were released for various users to meet their needs, that is REAL REAL big advantages than the IE. At that time, I started to use FF. But your developers should aware: We are playing browser and add-on to enjoy internet, NOT browser playing us !!! We have fun by using FF + addon, NOT like fix compatible problems everyday about the FF + addon for fun !!! So, I really really hope you developers would think about this problem seriously !!!

At present, in order to prevent from I was confused by the your new releasing version of FF which is quite different from the old version. I have uninstallled the FF, and downloaded the old version (FF 28) which I was used to. Your developers may say that is not good, that is not safe, and that is ... Stop, I just DO NOT CARE !!! If one day I really find a problem with FF browser, I just uninstall it and try some other browsers, I WILL NOT CHANGE MY HABIT TO MEET YOUR EXPECTATION !!!

THANKS & GOOD LUCK

By the way, I agree with you that it's hard to adjust to background tabs being designated only by a subtle vertical line between them. I am using a custom style rule to add a curved outline around the top: https://userstyles.org/styles/100627/outline-background-tabs-firefox-29-australis

Thanks for everybodys kind and patient reply~~

Recently, I have been busy with some urgent business. But my most favorite browser FF auto updated and some of the most important add-on could not be used as the compatible problem. And when I took a whole day to fix it and found the problem. I found I could not accept and get used to the new version, as it looks different, works different. I have to change my mind and habit to meet the new version of FF. Especially the new tab design, really made me annoying to read. And only countless weird and colorful themes are provided, maybe they are beautiful, but for me it only made the dispaly chaos.

Anyway, thanks again for all of your reply and advices. And I still think a classic browser should always be: 1. concise, easy to read and operate, 2. designable for everyone to enjoy their work Of course, for the young or artist, they may prefer to more colorful, but that should be the theme change problem.
