I had my tabs bar just above the page before I updated it and now can't figure out how to put them there again.

My bookmarks bar has migrated to the very top of the browser - not where I had (or want) that either!

I've a BIG space (on the browser edge) between the top of the active page and the URL

In short this is a mess - why could it not keep my settings as they where in the previous version?

I've already wasted over an hour trying to sort this - an hour I could have been doing more productive things - so yeah thanks for stealing my time as well!

As you might have guessed I'm a bit annoyed & angry at this.

If something isn't broken then DON'T fix it - it's an old adage but it holds true!

Isisombululo esikhethiwe

Sorry for the headache. It sounds like you want to put the tabs back on bottom and more. The best way to do that is to use the Classic Theme Restorer add-on.

This article has instructions for downloading it and putting tabs back on bottom - How to make the new Firefox look like the old Firefox. With that add-on you should be able to change almost everything to your liking.

Let me know how it goes.

Got it back to about 95% of the way it was before - it's not perfect as it's not the same as was but it'll do Can't seem to move the toolbar menu about - it's now in line with the URL but I want it below the URL The tabs are back on the bottom of the browser ribbon but can't add back/foraward buttons - can't even find where I should find them from.

A really stupid update all in in you ask me -

The best solution I've found so far is to go to Firefox archives, download version 28, before they screwed it up, & use it.
