Just reread the comments from the lat time i complained about the JE redesign. The old page is still available.

My complaint still stands though. Seriously, it refuses to sit. I yelled at it twenty-five times already. I guess not previously being known by any other name means it has no (k)nees.

I'm waiting for things to calm down before ordering. Though i do believe they will change the world.

It only tells me to about the latest version when upgrading 3.6 with security patches. Of which, iirc, there's only two more before dropping support.

If there is a fork, i hope i get wind of it. Methinks there may be a lot of interest for it.

It would have been trivial to put plugins into an architecture specific directory. This has been common practice in the sysadmin world for donkey's years. I've been doing it since the mid-90s, for example, and I learned about it from people that had been doing it for years before that. But no, Mozilla is written by people from a Windows background with no concept of such things.

Good point.

I stopped with 3.6. I upgraded to 4, hit 5 gave up, went back to 3.6. With OldLocationBar, getting rid of that annoying bar, it's probably the best of the bunch.

I get the feeling that the newer developers don't appreciate having your own flavor. It's just follow the leader. The problem is, this leads Mozilla into a lack of identity, and as a follower, will eventually fade away. Plugins are probably the only thing keeping it alive.

Moldova sounds so much cooler than Ethiopia.

Mind you, not the country or even the weather; just the name: Mol-do' va. The guy who made that name certainly had a mustache.
