The font on the bookmarks bar has been increased in size...I hate it. Youtube only works on some videos

Can you attach a screenshot?

Use a compressed image type like PNG or JPG to save the screenshot.

Is this still the same font or a different font that is larger?

Add to that street view in Google maps has stopped working. Why oh why do you guys not beta test these things properly. I would happily pay for a browser that worked properly and did the things that I,I,I,I want it to do!!!!!
Here's a pic of Google street view!

Once again Firefox is unusable because of an upgrade. All your best 'addons' seem to be non compatibile. To name a few:-

Scrapbook - Not is sidebar - or anywhere else to be exact (i.e. the icons which WERE on the navigation toolbar/the icon which SHOULD be present in the toolbar/customise list) except being listed in the tools/addons NoScript - Same as Scrapbook - criminal that this no longer protects us. VideoHelper - Ditto. Session Manager - Bye bye to that too it would seem.

Can we revert or not?

I use a mac so this may not be relevant to you. Version 17 is available here.

You can get a Windows version here ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/

.
.

edit: There is no need to go to any random unofficial download sites for any older versions. Keep in mind that the older release versions are vulnerable.

Many thanks, I am going back to 17 soon. I know 'addons' are always an issue but the new version seems to be incompatible with almost all of them as well as messing around with other things (Google maps etc).

I've read there have been major changes to JS and Java handling. Security is one thing but increasing security so that a product loses its usefullness/functionality is something else.

Also if you must downgrade to 17.0.* then at least consider using the 17.0esr channel releases. It may not get every single security fix that the then current release gets, however it will be much safer than using the old 17.0.1. The ESR version is meant more for Enterprise users in mind versus regular users. http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/organizations/all.html


If you want to get back on Release channel again in future, the easiest way is to install the current release version.

What addons are not compatible with 18.0.1 ? as the Plugins should not be a issue (though older insecure versions may be disabled by default due to blocklist), the Themes (not referring to Personas toolbar wallpaper) very likely need a update while most Extensions that were compatible with Firefox 10.0 or even 4.0 are still compatible with 18.0.1.

Unless

- Extensions which use XPCOM binary components must be recompiled specifically for the Firefox version. (antivirus toolbars for example)

- Extensions that use the "strict compatibility" flag in the install.rdf.

- Extensions with a max version compatibility lower than Firefox 4.0.

- Extensions tested by addons.mozilla.org and discovered to be incompatible by automated testing.
