OK, here's the deal. I've been on FF since it was called something else and version number was 0.2. I'm still loyal but am getting increasingly annoyed and have to revert more and more things each version. Here's the rundown this time:
1. The FF29 and FF30 GUI is crap. The previous one was superior in every aspect. That panel thing you get by clicking the "hamburger menu" is a mess that I won't even try to decipher. Curved GUI elements are inane on a rectangular display. The background tabs are hard to tell apart, the borders between them suck. Just get the old theme restorer add-on to fix all this stupidity.
2. FF29 and FF30 crash every 20 minutes with HTTPS-Everywhere add-on installed. It took me a while to figure this out, disabling Flash or Hardware Acceleration etc. has nothing to do with it. That add-on has to be updated, although I don't understand why the problem crept in with FF29+.
3. The changelog in this article is for FF28. WTF Slashdot? The correct changelog is at http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/f...
. It has nothing to do with VP9 or HTML5 or Opus. Firebug 2.0 compatibility is accurate however, so the summary is a hodge podge of FF28 and FF30 changes. But I knÄ±ow why, because it's getting icreasingly difficult for Mozilla to post a damn changelog on time. It takes about 1-2 days after the update gets pushed out before a damn changelog appears for the actual version.
