(For Forum Moderators: Please read /forums/forum-moderators/710264?last=59300)


Moderators, please read first before closing/removing this topic right away?
To those wanting to react here on this topic: please, also read ;)
Since my original posting https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/997009 was closed because one of the moderators felt it was going off-topic (although it was red a lot and had 131 "have-this-problem" in just a few days), here a kind of re-opening but on-topic.
Why? Because I feel we have the right to express our feelings on this major change. And publicly there is actually only this forum where that can be done on the Mozilla.org domain.
Sure, the change is there and we have to live with it (if we choose to). But that doesn't mean we can not have our voice here because after many, many years of supporting FF with our use, we suddenly are facing a layout we were always running away from.
So yes, that can cause ranting and so on (within the forum rules of course) because people feel strongly about there beloved browser.
(edit rules link note the whole topic is ordinarily outside the scope of the forum ... Posts in the Mozilla support forum must be either questions about the use of Firefox, ... Users who post about things other than Mozilla support will be directed to an alternative discussion place .... . ~J99)

Plus this way you can centralize all the negatives here instead of a lot of separate postings about the same subject ;)
To the people reacting here in this topic: there is only 1 real way to let Mozilla itself know how you feel on the new lay out and that is not through this forum. The way is to go to https://input.mozilla.org/feedback/ and let it know there.
edit You need to use a supported Firefox to post Feedback so that will soon not be possible from Fx28 2nd edit. I was wrong feedback works with any version of Fiefpx now~J99

And I think when that is done in normal words (so no f*ck you rants and so on) and suggestions, then maybe, just maybe, it has some effect.
Also, there is an Mozilla support page with info on how to get the "old look" back, see How to make the new Firefox look like the old FirefoxBut it will only partly restore the old look, certain FF29 things can not be changed.

And yes, I myself am back to Firefox 28 which is not supported or suggested by Mozilla because it has things (bugs and security) that are not fixed in it. (Edit Please use Official downloads if you must downgrade links in Install an older version of Firefox and the growing list of exploits you will open yourself up to is listed here: https://www.mozilla.org/security/known-vulnerabilities/firefox.html ~J99)

I am not suggesting or advertising to others to do the same. It is a risk I am willing to take and only say it is an option.
edit My reason to go back to FF 28 is because that version still has the intuitive feel and look Firefox one was praised for. With a logical lay out and a good way to simply customize it (also in about:config).
For those who say/think "Come one man, stop whining! Grow up and just accept that Firefox has to go with its time!", to them I say: nope ;)

First at all, sorry for repost about this topic but the topic that i saw doesn´t solve my problem. I have this code:

<tr>
    <td align="left">&nbsp;

</tr>

My problem is that the <a class="soporte" href="#faq_<%=id_grupo2%>_<%=orden2%>...</a>" doesn't do anything. It´s works in all browsers less firefox. Could anybody help me?

PD: Thanks for everything and sorry about my english...

I cannot open the site,www. pgmusic.com,with IE8,Mozilla nor Google Chrome. I can open all other sites in my Favories or Bookmarks on my desktop running Win XP Home SP3. I have the same problem with my laptop with IE10 and Google Chrome that runs Win 8.The common thing is my Mobile Partner(HUAWEI) USB modem that I have to insert in either PC to connect to the Internet or check email. I have uninstall and re-installed its SW but still have the same problem.No problem with emails with gmail,OE or Mail.

I have the famous Youtube crashing issue, and have tried everything on the internet to fix it plus other tweaks. In the end nothing works, and I'm all out of ideas. All I want to know is who do I point the finger at: Firefox, Adobe, or Youtube? I've been using Firefox since release, but this problem is only a Firefox problem, and I'm sick of dealing with it. At the same time I don't want to give up Firefox because Adobe can't program or Youtube has bugs. I've never had any issues with Firefox like this... Sure along the way there has been bugs, but this is getting ridiculous...

Anyway, it would be great to know who is doing it wrong, so I can go s**t in their Cheerios, and let them know how I feel about their product.

Thank You! :D

P.S. Surprising IEx64 10 doesn't have this problem for me, but who wants to use that trash...? *cough

I set up Sync on my PC a few weeks ago in preparation for purchasing an iPad. I now have it.

I have just installed Foxbrowser and I am putting the code it gives me when I 'Paira Device'. The app just has a message saying it 'Cannot Setup Sync' pop up. I've been searching and I cannot find any results on this specific problem. The device shows that it cannot setu[ after I enter the code into FF on my PC, so it has some sort of connection.

I have seen a mention of sign in to sync. I don't have that option, just Tools>Setup Sync. I guess I would explain it that I have set the browser to look like its older version.

Thanks for any help.

I have cleared cache and cookies, uninstalled and reinstalled Yahoo Messenger and all the other infuriating and inconvenient suggestions. FF is up to date. My Yahoo Mail is 'Full' not basic. It works in IE. I am suspicious of Java not working correctly in Firefox, which I have updated too. Java Deployment Toolkit is blocked by Firefox.

I am testing with Palemoon and so on but for now I still have Firefox 28 and that is what I want. I did disable everything to prevent the automatic updating (Advanced / Updates / Never controle). In about:config is also says: app.update.service.enabled = false app.update.auto = false app.update.enabled = false app.update.silent = false Yet Firefox 29 keeps on being forced down my throat? Now again: I get a little pop-up saying that version 29.0.1 is available and downloaded. And when checking under Help / About Firefox it says I have to restart Firefox to do the update? And sure enough: I close Firefox 28 and start it again and it is updating to version 29. And this is not an incident: when searching for it, many people have the same problem. So, how to stop this forced update?
