I've just got round to upgrading and I must say this version seems much snappier. My last install did seem a bit sluggish and I was constantly getting my activity circle spinning while using it the last few days. That's now gone and pages are loading instantly, I'm very pleased with it.

Technically, it is quicker and more responsive. Every damn update they move the buttons.

I really do wish that Mozilla would stop and realise that maybe some of us are running FF because we don't like Chrome. I know it's just a UI thing, but honestly I have always really disliked chrome. I'm seriously considering jumping ship to Opera, unfortunately my add-ons are things I cannot live without.

I've never used Chrome, in fact I've exclusively used Firefox for around the last seven years or so, so every update is just something new to me and I have nothing to compare it to. Either way it's better looking than IE!

I had to install Classic Theme Restorer to even give me basic options under customization, and I had to manually update Adblock Plus to get the icon to display in the menu bar properly. Even at that I can't remove the reload button from the URL bar, so I'm going to click it by accident every time I try to click the drop down arrow, just like I used to with that stupid bookmark star they used to have.

I'm sorely tempted to roll back to the last version I was using.

How's this for a lean, mean browser look? After years of toolbars & buttons galore, I went minimalistic with Firefox 29. I was able to make some buttons/icons invisible, and put a translucent overlay on the URL and search bars. The download arrow hidden until there is actually a file downloading... then it pops out at the top left corner.

pale moon is still on firefox 24, that makes it a security risk. try cyberfox it's upto date and will not be switching to the australis engine.

Okay, just for laughs, I updated.
The area in red - the Menu Bar - was what I was most concerned about losing.
Since the Menu Bar is still available to me, I have very few complaints.
I didn't even need Classic Theme Restorer!

I switched to FF in the wake of IE red alert from Homeland security and liked it instantly. Today I up-dated to FF 29...and like it even more. That's what upgrade should be...better. FF 29 is better than 28 version.
