6.0 interface is confusing; how can I make it look like previous?

Posted

How can I cause the tabs and buttons to be where they were on the older versions? I've tried to get used to the "new" interface, but I spend so much time looking for things that I used to know exactly where they were. How can I get the old version back, or how can I cause this one to put things where they're supposed to be? The tabs should be along the bottom, right above the web page display. And what happened to the little down-arrow on the back button that would allow me to go back to a previous page? And why on earth did you put the "undo" button where it is?? Makes no sense to me. Gimme back the old interface. Or must I abandon Firefox? jan Smith

The arrow to open the tab history of the Back and Forward buttons has been removed in Firefox 4 and later.

Use one of these methods to open the tab history list:

  • Right click on the Back or Forward button
  • Hold down the left mouse button on the enabled Back or Forward button until the list opens

You can make Firefox 6 look much like Firefox 3.6:
