Is there a way to use javascript or some plugin to change back to the old default menues and functional browser? as this "Update" was a downgrade of big dimensions!

It fails to show most videos on a page. You cannot change this in settings, as all choices there is blocking video/audio/both.

Long-clicking the adressbar no longer opens the newtab page.

Newtab page has too much deadspace, too small icons, no way of changing names of the shortcuts.

Bookmarks menu is slow. More clicks needed to do most basic surfing.

about:config and several other about menues no longer work. (see about:about for all about menues, many no longer works).

Tabs have no preview. Looks messy. No way of rearranging tabs.

Settings menu is stripped for most stuff it once had.

Plugins (most) does no longer work. These are leading plugins that worked in previous versions. Losing these breaks my daily flow in FF.

The menu for placing a shortcut link on homescreen/desktop is called "install" ?!?!? How about "add shortcut to homescreen"?

There are so many bugs, lacking features, extra clicks, missing features, changes in where and how menues work, this really sucks!

Where can we COMPLAIN to Mozilla about this crap-date they made???

The cursor jumps uncontrollable on this (and many other) pages. dragging it a little might scroll to the bottom of the page...terrible...

(and the claim on google play is that changes are made to increase security? How does completely screwing up the user-interface add to security?)

Isisombululo esikhethiwe

Hi

The new update brings with it a new independant browser engine that makes browsing faster and will help improve Firefox for Android further in the future.

Videos are opening and playing fine for me - which sites are not working for you?

Long press did not previously take you back to the home screen and this is unchanged in this update.

We have take the opportunity to give the home screen a refresh and to make it easy to use, likewise the the menu, we have looked afresh at how we can make this better for browsing on a mobile device.

We have provided support for some add-ons and hope to make many more available very soon.

If you are looking for about:config, I recomend that you try the Nightly version available from the Google Play store.

The people who answer questions here, for the most part, are other Firefox users volunteering their time (like me), not Mozilla employees or Firefox developers.

If you want to leave feedback for Firefox developers, you can go to the Firefox Help menu and select Submit Feedback... or use this link. Your feedback gets collected by a team of people who read it and gather data about the most common issues.

I did complain in Google Playstore, but the few they answered, they sent over to support.mozilla.org/products/mobile (and there is no direct way to complain about the update on that page, so this is why i post here)

Thanks for these two answers!! I'm sure they will help me to get a better version of this update with nigthly, and now i have a way of contacting developers with these errors/annoyances/terrible "updates" to the usability of the user-interface. I know this is by users, for users! But at GooglePlay* the developers that answered posts, sent us HERE instead of sending us to YOUR LINK, so we should blame them for poor answers on G.P* - You on the other hand have excellent answers!!! Thumbs Up!!
