So they admitted the original Fork (PM) was/is a failure and proceeded to Fork at a later stage of Firefox development looks like they are circling the drain and not something a responsible person should be touting

I don't need any of that, Aris's codes gave me what I needed, changing the .ini files in v57 let me run ESR at the same time.

No need to migrate any more. Though the choice of Web Extensions is pitiful for now, compared to the XUL but that should change over time.
I'm in my sixties and can do it, though to be fair, I've been geek since 1980.

Just a little minor tweaking from now on.

Yep, well polished program.

Yep, reckon so. Just use that Basilisk thing that Reflective mentioned above, then at least we won't have to read you moaning on here any longer.

Er, nope. The are 2 New Tab buttons on 57 - one that can can on any toolbar and...a small one with a + sign that goes on the end of the tabbar.



Yep, right where it shouldn't be. It WAS at the end of the last open tab, where it belonged. Where it made some inkling of sense.
I don't wanna argue with ya. You can like FF57 all you want. I won't stop you. :)

But it's pretty obvious, MOST don't like all the useless changes. (this doesn't include the improved security changes...just the useless GUI changes).

Maybe one day the officianados of FF will realize, that it already has it's fan base/market w/e. They don't NEED to make useless GUI changes, and then make it almost impossible to revert them.

Maybe when it starts losing it's fan base, it will wake up, so to speak.

I been using SeaMonkey for over 3 years. Since when does insisting on accurate information warp into liking in your mind?

Most odd.

spork :P That's good.

I'm gonna give Basilisk a try.

Does not use Rust or the Photon user interface. You can expect a familiar interface as-carried by Firefox between v29 and v56.

That's sounds good to me, I have used PaleMoon a bit with the blue PaleMoon button. I always hated the Firefox 4.0 UI with that stupid orange Firefox button - the first thing I would customize out of the UI in new Profiles. I was using a self-tweaked version of Tiny Menu that was similar to the original Compact Menu from like 2004.

OK, locking this thread as the OP clearly is not actually interested in Support. ](*,)
