      However the reload button is too small to use, so I picked "Classic Theme Restorer" to get it back.
      I have always used https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fir...ck/?src=search to reload pages, no need for a small button if I can use the tab itself.

          Just sayin...

            lol

            In all honesty though, when the Nightly channel (which I use mainly) switched over at the end of last year, I'd already had some experience with Australis after messing with the UX branch. But using it day in and day out... I honestly don't think I could touch the old UI again. Depending on your definition of a power user, I may-or-may-not be one, but I'm in love with the new interface.

            Then again, I don't use 100 addons and need an addon bar to manage them, I only use about 8-9, and of those only 4 require a visible button. Being able to place some on the main bar (for those I use a lot) and some in the menu itself (for those I use, but not very often) has cleared up my interface quite a bit (since I never did like the addon bar... always looked extra ugly to me so I hid it ^.^).

              And no, the Classic Theme Restorer plugin does not help.

              THANK YOU MOZILLA FOR FUCKING UP BIG TIME!!!
              If you have a problem with the direction that Firefox is heading in, use Seamonkey.

              It's compatible with most of the plugins and you can be guaranteed that the UI will never change.

                Neither Pentadactyl nor Vimperator work in Seamonkey. Why is it that any good software has to change the UI just for change's sake and fuck up the user experience while doing that?
                What comes next, Ribbons in LibreOffice? A Vim that looks and works like Gedit?

So I'll be dumping Firefox.
                  What you lose is freedom and performance.

                  Firefox's new Javascript interpreter outperforms Chromium, it also uses less memory and CPU per tab than Chromium does too.
                  ASM.js is a suitable replacement for NaCl too because, as its not running native code, there's less to exploit with malicious scripts.

                    Somebody doesn't understand how UI design works

                    As somebody using Australlis for a few months now, I feel I am qualified to say the update wasn't just "for change's sake". It made Firefox wayyy nicer to use, which is... ya know... the point of it...
                    The only thing I'm waiting for now is about:Preferences becoming the default over the preferences pop-up, and for about:addons to use the about:Preferences CSS

                      Vimperator is listed on the Seamonkey add-on page.
