I will not use Firefox 29 or newer until the crappy interface introduced in v29 it made user friendly, and bring back certain missing thing from v28 (they may be profile holdovers from a much older version), no the classic theme restorer does not bring them back. The above is here simply to try and stop suggestions about using v29

I have tried going into options menu Firefox>Options>Advanced>Never Check for Updates, but that does not prevent updates. I have had to uninstall Firefox 29 5 times today every time after telling it to "Never check for updates."

This is a continuation of a thread found here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/997448 by Compumind.

I reported I was having the same experience, especially when opening links from emails in Thunderbird. I also reported I was forced to revert to FF 28.

Moses replied in above thread and suggested: (1) Download a fresh installer from https://www.mozilla.org/firefox/all/ to a convenient location. (Scroll down to your preferred language.)

(2) Exit out of Firefox.

(3) Rename the folder

C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox

to

C:\Program Files (x86)\OldFirefox

(4) Run the installer you downloaded in #1. It should automatically connect to your existing settings.

I followed these instruction carefully but no joy. Upon installing FF 29, not only would it refuse to exit (using "exit") and remain running in the Task Manager until I killed it after opening links from Thunderbird, but I found it refused to exit after simple browsing and following links.

Moses had asked I not reply in original thread so I am re-posting here.

I believe this is a serious bug. With Firefox 28...no problems except a minor one I reported here: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1002089

Again I am forced back to FF 28, though I miss the beautiful interface and security fixes, I need to have a browser that works properly. My wife has never even seen the Task Manager before so this is problem.

Besides the "educated guesses" made with this post, the only other thing outside of usual that I do, is to have a security policy regarding cookies (don't accept by default...I make exceptions for cookies I want to retain and have a several that are only "allow for session.") I also have FF set to delete browsing history on exit, but that takes a split second.

I look forward to when this issue can be addressed successfully and I am able to use FF 29 (and have it exit properly...I can't expect my wife to follow all these instructions and close it often manually in the task manager...nor do I want to do this.)

Good luck on all the Mozilla projects. Having installed FF 29 twice and then reverted back to 28 twice, I am going to wait and see how this plays out. Please don't send me the standard, "start in safe mode", "restart with add-ons disabled", "reset Firefox" (last time that destroyed my browser completely) stuff. I do not believe this is what's happening.

Moses added that there is a problem with email notifications going through, so take your time, friends.

(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 ;)

I was using an older version of FF because the newer versions had messed up private browsing and I had the option of deciding if I wanted tabbed browsing. I switched to a newer version because a lot of sites didn't work with the older version.

I went into tools - tabs and checked what I used to use not to get tabbed browsing. Doesn't work.

Please tell me how to get rid of tabbed browsing and how to switch back and forth to private and regular browsing without opening a new tab/window.

If I can't get rid of tabbed browsing I guess I'll muddle along with an older version.

(Removed beta link to 28. -m)

All the current changes for firefox seem oriented towards the tab computer market but unfortunately these tab computers are way to slow and underperform compared dramaticly compared to my desktop computer. Having tabs below is what makes my system functionality and workflow perform at its best. I often have up to 100 tabs open at a time when doing research but with every change by firefox this ability is more and more taken away. from right click send emails and now tabs cant be placed below its time for firefox to decide if its time for two different versions of there product to be made. One for the desktop and a seperate version for tablet computers. Having tabs above the address bar is just plain stupid when you have 100 tabs open ie it just doesnt work. My pc has 64 gigs of ram and a 6 cor processor and with every itereation of firefox for the past 4 years my ability to use the ability of my PC has been more and more removed. I seem to have no choice but to revert to an earlier version of firfox in order to at least keep some of the former functionality. I dont use touch functionality and yet the latest version seems complllletelly oriented towards touch computers and thats great but its been done at the expence of people like me who will never use this type of feature. Time to creat two seperate versions of Firfox one for people like me who have realy powerfull computers and many many many tabs open at a time and one for the tablet pc touch people who only have 1 or 2 tabs open at a time.

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'm using thousands of tabs, of course with the option "don't load tabs until selected" activated so FF is supposed not to have to load really more content in memory compared if I was just opening one tab.

But my Firefox is using more than 2GB of memory just to boot up i.e. loading the list of the tabs with their little icon, a tab and the extensions. I tried to boot FF in "without modules" mode it doesn't even manage to boot. That was quite annoying but OK but now my ff is randomly CRASHING (I am probably around 3000 now) ! The memory problem is here for a lot of time but the crash is new but I believe it's more the tab number than the new version responsible for it.

I cleared cache and cookies, it doesn't solve anything.

How I'm suppose to solve this problem ? Just deleting my beloved tabs ?

I believe there's a deeper problem in the way Firefox manage "this unload until selected" option because it isn't acting as if theye were not here.

My system is otherwise quite stable except my system clock can go back in time a little bit, is it a possible reason for the crashes ? Is there an 'hardcoded' limit number of tabs opened ? Shall I post on Bugzilla where no one seems to listen to anything ? Or you just consider this a 'non normal usage' and do not even care ?

Thanks to anyone helping me and sorry for any mistake in english.

PS: FF lacks a simple way of knowing how many tabs you've got.

I've seen the thread on rolling back where the guy asks to roll back to Firefox 28 from 29 and you give him advice to DO SOMETHING ELSE. Thanks so much for that but I've already tried that, and that solution sucks. Classic Theme Restorer doesn't do what I want. It doesn't restore the spinner, and it doesn't fix any of the three Qute themes, for pretty much the exact same reason, it appears:

gigaherz: "Due to the heavy UI changes in Firefox 29 I cannot maintain this theme any longer" Murphy: "Due to the heavy UI changes in Firefox 29 I cannot maintain this theme any longer" Ryan Power: "Sorry folks, but Firefox is getting too unwieldy to keep trying to restore the classic look..."

I've despaired of getting Firefox 29 to look the way I want it to look. In the interim I would like to run Firefox 28.

Oh, and one more thing: I tried to create this question using my actual install of Firefox 29, but apparently that doesn't work any more! I am unable to create a question on how to rollback from Firefox 29 by using Firefox 29. Instead I have to use my work computer (which I assure you, will never update to 29).

If that's an accident, then it's HILARIOUS.

I downgraded back to 28 after 29 came out. Now I get pompts/popups asking if Firefox can make changes. I want to make this go away. There will never be an upgrade to 29 and I am willing to take the risk of staying with 28. If this can't made to permanetly disappear I will have to find another browser. I have checked the update section of the security tab under options and checked NEVER and it still does it every time I launch firefox.

There seems to be an issue with opendns free servers

(Locked. Not a support question. See bold text for reasons of locking -m)

This is more of a "I found it" than a question as this seems to be an issue with the opendns free DNS servers related to certain torrent sites and the duckduckgo search engine. However any thoughts are appreciated.

While looking for a solution I followed troubleshooting steps found here to no avail regarding cookies (I'm accepting them from everyone including third party cookies and their dogs), clearing cookies (do that all the time as a matter of routine, did it again several times), clearing the cache (did that, got the T-shirt, now I'll never be naked) and checked the about:config setting (I forget which one but it was already set to 20, the default)

Note that I can eliminate these issues completely by setting my DNS to "automatic" however I've been using opendns free DNS servers for years and have changed nothing except when troubleshooting this issue.

The following is a detailed description. It can be confusing if you don't read it carefully:

I had this happen on several torrent sites however I can get through on others but when I choose the .torrent link I get the same problem on most like at: http://kickass.to/movies/genre/news/ and the KAT mirrors... on KAT I can get to the page but the .torrent links are at http://torcache.net and I am unable to get those .torrents at all. (getting the "the page isn't redirecting properly" Firefox error message and the very long http://guidetest.a.id.opendns.com/?url=guidetest%2E (goes on forever) URL

I'll post a few links that I've tried (just to see if they work) below.

http://www.torrentz.eu/ - can't see the page at all, I get the "the page isn't redirecting properly" Firefox error message and it redirects to the URL: http://guidetest.a.id.opendns.com/?url=g...Ecom%(goes on for something like a couple of hundred characters)

Same issue with several other torrent sites...

lazypirate.net I can't get through at all - same issue

http://extratorrent.cc/ - no problem with pages or .torrents

http://isohunt.to/ - again no problem with pages or .torrents


Particular torrents I get the:"the page isn't redirecting properly" Firefox error message and it redirects to the URL: guidetest.a.id.opendns.com/?url=guidetest%2Ea%2Eid (blah blah forever) are:


http://thetorrent.org/A5F7D7D92D8CDE2576...9B.torrent : (getting the "the page isn't redirecting properly" Firefox error message and the very long http://guidetest.a.id.opendns.com/?url=guidetest%2E (goes on forver) URL

I can go on to list individual .torrents but I think you get the idea...

I've had this issue with more than a few torrents over the last couple of days and can't remember them all but further checking does seem like it's either particular torrent sites I can't access at all or on sites I can access but store their .torrent files on either torcache.net or thetorrent.org so there seems to be mixed issues, being able to see some pages but not get .torrent files from those sites if they're stored somewhere else.

On duckduckgo I get the "this site is untrusted" error.


Again, when I abandon the opendns DNS servers I've been using for years and go to "automatic" both of these issues disappear with no other changes. and I've done that several times just to verify the problem and even confirmed that the opendns server addresses are correct, which they are the same ones I've used for years.

I've emailed opendns and described the issue and they are completely confused and tell me "it must be your settings"

Although this doesn't seem to be a Firefox or a Windows issue, I'm using FF 28.0 on win XP Pro SP3, legal OEM copy, Pentium D, 3.66 GHz, and 4 GB or Ram (3.65 GB of RAM recognized by XP, this is normal)

Again, this issue only happens with the opendns free DNS servers I've been using for years and vanishes completely when I choose the automatic DNS setting and has only been happening a few days.

I have screenshots of the errors and thought there was a way to post them here but I don't see that.

The error on torrent sites is "The page isn't redirecting properly. FF has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete. (and goes on to say blah blah cookies blah blah that I've checked and rechecked)

The error on duckduckgo is "This Connection is Untrusted. You have asked Firefox to connect securely to duckduckgo.com, but we can't confirm that your connection is secure." blah blah (you probably know the rest). I expect that I could add an exception but again the problem doesn't happen when using automatic DNS server detection.

I have no problems on other sites that I see.
