I could never use a product made by such a mentally constipated group as Mozilla. Mr. Eich's position at the time was identical to that of President Obama. Are you actively campaigning to have him impeached? If not, why not?

Please forward appropriately. I have no issue with gay marriage either but to let that man go because of his donation 10 years ago is unconscionable. I will go back to IE now.

I recently transferred to a new email provider hosted by my ISP. I have found that a lot of information did not transfer from Thunderbird to the new account. All that I can see is basic names and phone numbers in the new account but no information such as addresses or fax numbers. If I reinstall Thunderbird will I be able to get this information back? Cheers and thanks.

First, right up front -- I have no problem, I have no question.

I simply cannot find a more straightforward way to post a huge Thank You, Well Done, to all the folks responsible for the great Firefox product.

I have been a happy user for a very long time, but over the last couple of weeks of constant badgering from Microsoft about my continued use of Windows XP, I finally had to spend $130 to get a copy of Windows 7 in order to try to configure dual boot on my circa 2008 mobo/workstation.

I am sure that many of you know and understand just how much customization one puts into his hardware/OS/App combinations. The man-months of configuring everything to maximize your productivity is huge, which is why we try to defer changes until absolutely necessary. While I don't feel it absolutely necessary to abandon XP3, I do confess that I need to upgrade some of my apps to 64-bit versions, so I reluctantly started to see how hard the migration tasks would be.

So let me cut to the chase, as between Outlook Express and anything else, perhaps vi, or some other favored text editor, there is no single piece of software that is more tuned, and retains more understanding of my computing needs than my browser. When I got to the point of getting IE upgraded from 8 to 11, Microsoft was probably happy, but I could care less, so useless has IE been for so long. When I downloaded Chrome, it was no surprise that the differences between my old copy and my new one, were not dramatic -- that's because Chrome has always just been there as my backup, not my primary tool.

So, when I had to deal with a new, virgin copy of Firefox, my heart almost stopped beating. What was all that stuff on my pristine screen? Well, all that stuff is what turns most of the world off of the Internet -- most of all that stuff has not bothered me for a long time because I have a suite of add--ons and setup settings that give me a clean, efficient environment. When, where, and which settings and add-ons defined MyFireFox? It would take me a couple of hours to try to decipher/reconstruct those matters.

Then I recalled that I had a Profile sitting around somewhere. What if I just grabbed that Windows XP3 Profile and copied it over to where Windows 7 Pro would be looking for it? Slam-bam-thank-you-mam, in an instant Firefox on my new boot system gave me all the old, reliable behaviors, links, etc. upon which I depend. I am in day four of trying to get my other drop-dead tools migrated, but my browser just works.

Thank you, thank you, thank you.

I see from your responses to others that you are a supporter of gay propaganda and are untruthful about Mr Eich's departure. I hope the 2% gay population is enough to sustain your business. You left wingers are pushing us too hard. You should get ready for push back from the majority of your customers. You have underestimated us.

When you are a developer or someone that uses a lot of addons , there supposed to be a place where you can see your Addons. The idea of removing the Addon Bar and putting all Addons on the top in Mozilla Firefox 29 is horrible. First of all there is no space for search engines their space is small second of all Add-ons are packed and you cannot see them clearly. By directing people in the support forum to a “Classic Theme Restorer” gives the impression that you are doing something wrong. This was the worst update of Mozilla Firefox. Can you please provide me with instructions on how to degrade

Edited for language etc. Sorry you are unhappy with recent changes. If you change your mind and need help with using Firefox please post again. I will close this thread as it is not a request for support.
