    Default I'm flabbergasted..

    Hi!
    O yes I have been forwarned about the interface on FF (Firefox 29). Now in the reality when I have tested for an hour. I dont like it. It make me confused and reminds me of Crome. I deselect that browser for many years.

    "Grumpy old men" may fit on me. I notice another thing and the spelling controll dosen't work. Make my English even worst.

    Yes with a spark in my eye

    Regards
    I'm shameless like others in the forum -was I to any help or made sense? If yes: click the on the star below to the left. Written whit a ;-) in my eye.

    Try LuaKit or perhaps otter-browser, there is also SRware-iron? I'm still on Firefox 28 here...

    I always preferred Seamonkey, it's got a few very small issues with some web sites, but hasn't changed drastically. Plus, I like having my email with it, instead of using a separate email client.

    I updated on Windows (to test something). It looks strange.

    Fortunately, I don't use Windows much. I'll wait till the update is in the repos before I find out how bad it is.

    All I did was "zypper dup". I do it in every 2-3 days on my desktop. I'm familiar whit the cons. My mainserver and Virtual PC's are not disturbed. "Zypper up" at the most.

    Hi
    You tweaked my interest, so booted up the windows 8.1 machine and let it update, indeed a little different, but like you don't use windows much, but from first looks, wasn't to bad IMHO...

    I'm loving it!

    I have all the icons on the navigation bar for my most frequently accessed items like Add-ons Manager, Print, Settings, History, and Developer tools along with the default Bookmarks Downloads and Menu icons.. The ones I use less frequently I moved from the Customize panel to the Menu panel, and removed the ones I don't use from the Menu panel to the Customize Panel.

    So did those of you that didn't like it take the tour? It starts up offering it, or you can go to Help > Firefox Tour to launch it.

    A couple of good articles at tech sites.

    Well, it looks like Firefox has been "Chromed".

    I don't dislike it. Always liked the cleanliness of Chrome, and the fact that it leaves so much free space for actually browsing. But it's a resource hog and privacy is a chimaera, so I think I'll stick with Firefox.

    There's always Midori, or Konqueror for us KDEites.

    I forgot to mention Maxthon, but I haven't tried it, heard good things about it though.
