Tiny Text on Tabs

The new version of Firefox changed the text on tabs. It used to be that a tab's text was a decent, readable size, a tab icon would be replaced by a play button if media was playing, and when moused over it changed to a speaker icon that let you mute the tab. Nice! Now, instead of the universally recognized 'play' icon, someone decided to SHRINK the tab title to barely readable so they could fit PLAYING underneath, making the mute 'button' harder to click as a consequence. Seriously? Replacing something that's universally understood with text that has to be customized by regional settings? And shrinking the tab title to do it? Who thought this was a good idea?

Worse, seemingly to justify this change, if you have autoplay turned off in settings, AUTOPLAY BLOCKED shows up on the tab. As if it's like "OMG You Blocked AutoPlay! What Are You Doing???" Wow.. cuz I totally forgot that I wanted to NOT hear what every Web PR hack in the world want's to shove down my throat (via the ear canal :-) the second a page opens.

Mozilla claims to be all about protecting personal information. Yet every new version has the box checked for Steal My Info.. er.. I mean, Allow Firefox to send [xxx] to Mozilla, even though it was turned off before the update. It's a setting under PRIVACY and Security, for crying out loud!!! You want to have that stuff turned on for new installs, great, have fun. But leave my Privacy settings ALONE.

Start Firefox using Troubleshoot(Safe) Mode {web link}

A small dialog should appear. Click Start In Troubleshoot(Safe) Mode (not Refresh). Is the problem still there?
