yeah, they added a scroller for the personas and a big screenshot of a persona next to the description.
In the themes description there is no scroller, only a small screenshot of a theme and the most important thing:
the whole color of the description box has the exact color with the background color of the persona screenshot above.
So the whole thing looks indistinguishable if you look quickly at the page. You don't get the feeling that the texts are
referring to two completely different things.

And ofc the rest of the columns show statistics exclusively for the personas and nothing at all for the themes.
Which gives the impression to the user that the personas is the main,more important category of themes for the browser, not the classic ones.
This also explains why the personas name was changed to themes. Everything is part of the procedure of completely replacing the classic themes with the personas.

So yeah, Mozilla wants to get rid off of the themes because they are not "chrome" enough. this is pretty obvious now.
i am stopping here because i am too angry now and my next sentence wouldn't be a polite one.

ps. and i just learned that they are going to kill Panorama too. sigh..

This attitude (in addition to personal demands) is what made me want to give up theming after doing it for 12 years. I, for one, am happy to be done with it.

I use Panorama all the time. All day, every day. It's an essential part of my browsing experience.

Thanks. Feel free to delete my comment. It does belong in the TabGroups thread.

jivko-

Since is wasn't 100% on topic I split your post to here viewtopic.php?f=18&t=2734013, "I can't believe that the most downloaded custom theme has less than 10 000 weekly downloads."
