Firefox Themes Page is Terrible!!!

Posted

It appears that Firefox recently updated it's Themes site and it is terrible.

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/themes/

There's no way to see what a theme looks like unless you install it. Please fix this Firefox!

Please bring back the classic desktop page so we can preview themes.

Sorry that isn't going to happen. They changed to a standard default firefox when you install and it's up to the user to use either the Addon themes or find "userChrome.css" themes to change to.

Question owner

Ummm... did you even read my post? I am talking about Firefox's add-ons website to get new themes. It's horrible. You cannot hover over a theme with your mouse to see what it looks like. You have to install the theme to see how it looks.

Big Epic Fail on the part of Firefox.

Firefox updated nothing on AMO as Firefox is a web browser and Mozilla is the company that makes the Firefox web browsers for desktop, iOS and Android.

The ability to preview a lifghtweight theme was removed a while back due to performance reasons so it is not a bug in need of fixing.
