I am visually impared, so it is not easy for me to see icons and exactly what the designate. I have been using Firefox for several years and am satisfied with it for the most part. However I have noticed one rather annoying thing that happens periodically when you do a major change in the browser.
You change where you have to look to find things that were easily found before.
A prime example of this happened with the change to 29.1 I, believe.
The back button, which used to be in the upper left hand corner of the page is now neatly nestled at the edge of the window where the URL is selected.
I believe you have simply added new icons to the left of the back button, but I am not sure if they were there before but in a different place. In any case, as someone who has difficulty seeing exactly what each icon depicts, and therefore relies on memorizing what they do and where they are on a page, I find it very annoying to have to relearn the browser functionality every time you do a major update.
I also find that with each new "improvement" the various browsers get more and more complicated and bloated. Firefox has been my browser of choice for some time, but frankly, I am leaning toward using Chrome, since I am now going to have to learn a whole new way of using Firefox, I figured I might as well get used to Chrome till the pull the same thing you people just did, and I have to start all over again.
I just looked at the add on that your page here suggested and it doesn't tell me any way I could put the user interface back to the way it had been before you "improved" my experience. I honestly can't understand the reason for arbitrarily changing the way something a user is used to dealing with when new updates are sent.
Thank you for letting me vent.
