I like the "direction Mozilla has chosen". It's why I recently switched from Chrome to FireFox as my primary browser.

They've lost some market share, sure, but they were losing that long before they rolled out Australis. From the numbers I have, the rate that they're dropping share has slowed (even in the wake of the Eich controversy) and the ground they've been losing has gone near exclusively to Chrome!

You can continue to blame those who say Mozilla has chosen the wrong path.

I'm not blaming them for anything. I think they're a tiny minority of perpetually dissatisfied users that won't be happy no matter what Mozilla does. They whine when features are added, they whine when features are removed, they whine when they don't see any changes and they whine every time a change is made. It's like they need to complain to feel important.

. It has significantly reduced my ability to customize the user interface of Firefox to suit my needs.

Specifically, how has it reduced your ability to customize the user interface?

What could you do before that you're now unable to do? What need do you have that is not able to be fulfilled?

It's more like twelve thousand intelligent comments for every "threat".

Evidence?

I've yet to see an intelligent comment about one of her videos. Can you find even one? All I've seen are insults and threats!

I'd be very interested in seeing a thread consisting of mostly intelligent comments, burying the moronic insults and threats.

I have serious doubts, however, that such a thread exists.

Highlighting your epic logic fail:

How is someone supposed to present evidence of no evidence?

By providing evidence of the counterclaim.
 

As for evidence of the threats, here's a post she made on twitter highlighting an example of a specific threat

Yea, like that.

Now go and sin no more.

Mozilla is in a war with its users

Seems to me that the complaints come from a tiny, but vocal, minority.

It doesn't matter what they change, someone like you will treat it like it's the end of the world.

Oh, and heaven help them if they don't make enough changes! The outcry from the same group of perpetually dissatisfied users would be deafening!

1) about:config
2) search for newtab
3) double-click browser.newtab.url
4) Modify to your heart's desire.

If that doesn't satisfy you:

Open userContent.css, add the following:
@-moz-document url("about:newtab") { #newtab-search-container { display: none !important; } }

You're welcome.

Heisenberg may have been here.
