Whoa . . . . . . . . no comments - looks like Australis punctured the air outta the Firefox sails. :o

Or it could be a sign that the users got used to it and/or like the new design. Silence can also mean no complaints.

 

The only thing that actually bothered me about the new design is the removal of the tabs-on-bottom mode, but I got used to it.

@ purple, you can get tabs on bottom in fx 29 using the popular autralis addon (forgot its name) many using 29 are already using.

my only complaint that i have for 29, is that i can no longer have the old style history drop down menu, which is a big deal to me :( it's still there in the menu bar, but no addons are out to make it like the old, moveable button. the new history button they've got is great, till you visit a few sites and your last actual visited site is half way down the screen!

To get back old style history, squared tabs, appmenu, use this extension-> https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/classicthemerestorer/?src=userprofile

@ batu, thanks for the link, that's the australis addon i was on about. i use it already on my portable beta, and unfortunatly there's no old drop down style history button option in it (unless you mean history sidebar button, or the option to 'compact' the new history button - which is no good as it still lists the 'top visited session sites' and just squishes everything at best).

I'm still having a problem with the Firefox task totally quitting. When I end the Firefox task, it doesn't always completely stop. Sometimes I have to use the task manager to kill it.

yea i've had that problem too on my portable version, i've seen it mentioned in mozilla forums before as well (but might be a portable version bug). so i'm fairly sure they already know about it, and will probably be fixed by the final version (specially when more of the public start using it).
