(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 have an HP Pavillon, Juno email and Firefox is my default browser, At some point while accessing my email I will get the "unresponsive script" error and although it gives my options to continue, debug or close, none of it works and computer freezes. So I have to go to Task Manager and close everything down and start over. Very frustrating. It has also happened when I have been on other websites or with Internet Explorer. HP has tried fixing it, Juno has tried ....all to no avail. I've tried refresh, done many virus/malware scans, etc. It seems to me there is a plug-in or an add-in or some box somewhere not checked. Any ideas?

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.

I did update to FF 29 and to my horror it just looks awful and makes no sense at all anymore :( Seems somehow FF thinks it's wise to make it look like other browsers :( I did try the "old look"-add on, did try the add-ons to get buttons back on the bottom (which is the most logical place for them), and so on. 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 recently removed the Stylish add-on from my browser. However I might have disabled it some time ago (I can't exactly recall) and I couldn't tell at the moment because I had just got the newest update.

Is there any file I can open to see a record/timeline or allow me to see what add-ons I disabled and when? Or anything else I could use?

Thanks.

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?

System details: OS: Windows 8.1 Professional (64-bits) Graphics Card: PNY NVidia GT 610 (2GB) RAM: 5GB Firefox version: 36.0 (32-bits)

Starting yesterday, when images would load on websites, some of them would either be completely black, or mostly black, with only a piece of the images loaded, only to fully load several minutes later.

Turning off hardware acceleration resolved this issue, but reduced the overall performance of firefox. Is there any other way to work around this issue, besides turning off hardware acceleration?

Note: The only 2 things I didn't try were resetting firefox, and a fresh install of firefox. I don't want to lose my addon data, and custom firefox settings, because it takes too long for me to put them back where they are now.

I'm also fairly computer savvy, so you can get pretty technical with me. If I don't understand something, I will ask.

When I'm in private browsing mode in Firefox 38.0.1 for Windows 8.1, I cannot do the following things.

1. When I click on a link to open a new window, that new window is like a pop-up window (no menus, no scroll-bars). But I have pop-up windows blocked, so it acts like but is not technically a pop-up window since it's not being blocked.

2. When I choose a bookmark and then right-click on it to choose another bookmark either in a new window or new tab (or any of the other options that appear), the text is grayed out so that I cannot choose it.

Are these "issues" normal for Firefox 38.0.1?

Can anyone give me some 'For dumb dumbs' step by step with no abbreviations instructions for killing my new browser hijacker Yahoo... I downloaded a couple of what looked like free antiviral programs... They were not free on further viewing...and another two, although different names where also the same company... After deleting them Yahoo appeared and took over. I can access Google by fiddling around but its results come up in Yahoo.

Obviously I have looked for it within 'Remove a program'... I have also gone into Windows/Programs/Mozilla Firefox/addons and cannot find anything that sniffs of Yahoo. I have also reverted my laptop to a previous date way back at the end of July.... Afterwards Yahoo was still taking over my searches.

It will even cut me out of viewing when I access help pages and Ive had to find what I was reading using the history menu section. It allows other searches that are not to do with slaying Yahoo.. lol.. Its like living with the enemy.

I have been reading some earlier help pages but I don't find what people are being advised to find. Or answers provided are questioned by others who suggest also deleting other files... I want to be confident in what I delete not hesitant etc..

Id hoped Firefox may have a magical add on especially for the Yahoo removal task as many are finding they have been taken over...but, sadly nothing came up..

So if anyone can help with solutions even if they are different to each other, I would like to look at everyone's ideas please. Again...please be very specific with the dumb dumb speak for me lol... no big techy talk etc.. ha ha.. Thank you.
