(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 ;)

- Session restore brings up tabs that I had closed before closing Firefox. Sometimes it even selects a tab that I didn't have selected when I closed it.

- Leaking memory like nobody's business. It went from 500 MB to 1.5 GB overnight (i.e. while it was "idling" minimized on the desktop).

- The config.trim_on_minimize setting is missing. Why is this?

- When the memory usage gets above ~1 GB (FYI, this is a guess), I start seeing problems with Firefox displaying web-page graphics and even, in one instance, shutting down text input on a web page (this was within Facebook).

- Randomly crashes for no apparent reason. FYI, this happened after I updated to Firefox 28 as well.

None of these problems ever happened before I upgraded to Firefox 28 and 29. I'm very close to abandoning Firefox altogether if these problems are not resolved promptly and permanently. In other words, I've nearly had enough of this. Whatever happened to "If it ain't broke, don't fix it"?

Hello, everyone!

I've filed a bug report here: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1004476 The problem is that after installing Firefox 29 with no profile at all and installing any addon that requires a browser restart (NoScript for e.g.) Firefox restarts OK, but after closing it and trying to open again I get a message: "Firefox is already running". I can see in the Task Manager that there is already Firefox running in the background. I've found several people complaining about this issue. Here: http://forums.informaction.com/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=19612 And here: http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=2825639

Thank you in advance

2nd Update. (Comment by a moderator)
Engineers are working on issues that have been identified.
The known issues are problems with Firefox hanging on closedown resulting in Firefox not restarting unless the hung process is killed.

Workaround ensure Firefox is NOT set to clear History on Close down
Use NewButton New Fx Menu → Preferences → |Privacy| Firefox will: [Remember History v ]

after updating to firefox 29 and then 29.0.1, the cpu usage that firefox are using are insane,

it ranges between 50%-100% cpu usage.

and it happens even on normal non flash tab,

besides even if the site is using flash, i am using flash block and adblock plus,

so anykind of flash material wont play or uses cpu.

please fix this ASAP, because firefox has now gone from useable to resource hog,

oh and i don't like the new look, because firefox has become more similar to chrome on User interface,

and i don't use chrome, because i don't like the UI, and now firefox tried to be chrome twin ?

i think that's all, thanks in advance.

I've done -both- selecting & blocking the domain name of Google for prefs, etc from it's website AND using the Firefox security options page and typing in Google's domain name then selecting it to remove its cookies. But every time I check the "Show Cookies" tab, google is STILL there in the cookie list even after I've done all this stuff. What must I do, what secret domain name must I type to ensure Google doesn't track me?

I'm already using DuckDuckGo as my sole search engine so there is NO reason why google should be able to attach cookies to me as I am NOT USING GOOGLE. Please help.

But the overall look just stays awful :( Until there is an option where I can get the real and logical version 28 layout back, where is a complete version of FF 28 so I can use a logical layout FF browser?

I use the refresh icon fairly often and now it's gone. Not in the Customize Menu or anywhere else.

The tabs at the top are difficult to read, they all blend together in one long line, is there a way to better differentiate them one from another?

I looked at the Classic Theme Restorer, will that allow me to put FF back to the way it was yesterday? What does beta mean?

In Version 29 of FireFox the "folder" or "link" icons of the bookmark toolbar are stuck VISIBLE.

I simply wish to hide/delete the icon, showing only the text as I had before. The icons are basically meaningless and I don't need them to be visible.

Please suggest the correct path for adjusting this.

im not sure i can live with this. i need my original firefox back. this version is no good. how do i get the previous theme with my orange firefox button and grey top ?

im am positive that i did not say to update. it just did it on its own. now its gay blue. whats worse is there is a gradient into the gay blue. horrible and i need help to get rid of it.

it wouldve made more sense to put the icons on the left. and leave the search on the right where it belongs.

if i redownload 28, how do i stop it from updating again?

Since I updated to version 29.0.1 Firefox is crashing daily. Before this latest update I had no problems. I've gone through support and tried every suggestion (safe mode, made sure all drivers are up-to-date, uninstalled and reinstalled, etc.) and yet it still crashes. I desperately need my browser to work flawlessly for my work, otherwise, regretfully, I am going to have to use another browser. Here are a couple of my crash reports:

If anyone can help me stop Firefox from crashing, I will be eternally grateful.

Before the update, I was able to use Stylish to get this functionality. However, something is broken with how -moz-box-ordinal-group functions. The only valid entries are 0 (places it above the Menu Bar) or !0 (places it at the very bottom).

Neither of those two places are what I desire. Here is what I'm aiming for, from top to bottom:

Menu Bar
Bookmarks Toolbar
Tabs
Address Bar

See this Stylish for a picture of what I used to have:
http://userstyles.org/styles/46274/firefox-4-bookmarks-toolbar-above-tabs-enhanced

So, my question here is, how can I restore this functionality? Having bookmarks below the address bar does not follow logic, in my mind. And this "now things are easy to customize how you want it!" thing that Australis is supposed to allow... doesn't let me customize it how I want it.

Any help would be appreciated, be it a config setting, a plugin, or some CSS I can plug into Stylish.

How to move address bar (navigation bar) to title bar in Firefox 29?

What I'm trying to achieve is to have only one bar visible in Firefox. New Firefox interface is a waste of vertical screen space for me in its default configuration. Up to Firefox 28 I could drag and drop everything to title bar with additional adjustments in userChrome.css.

I tried to use https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/classicthemerestorer/ but it didn't work for me. I don't want older theme anyway, I just want the same amount of customization available.
