Windows 7: Mozilla Introduces Firefox 29 the Most Customizable Ever

I started using Opera 6 years ago, changed to Chrome for quite a while, then to IE 10 & 11 & now back to Opera v20.0, which I like the best.

I've used Opera before; Firefox seems to be my browser of choice. I completely uninstalled IE from my machine.

Internet Explorer's rendering engine is also used throughout Windows and with third-party applications as an embeddable component, it won't completely uninstall,only the executable is actually removed.

Adding something to that, IE is embeeded completely into Windows, meaning that the OS and the browser share libraries, files and even directx runtimes (in case of IE 9+), so, yes, you only removd access to executable, but IE rendering engine, libraries and shared files are still present, because they are simply used by Windows itself. That is the reson why IE starts faster than any other browser, no matter what they do. Cheating with pre-cached system files to load the browser faster leaves room for no competition in that regard.

Now, the thing is, browsing and rendering now goes faster than IE11, at least in my case...

I've noticed this too. From what I've seen in various places, this is counted as a bug on the Mozilla forums.

They say this is the most customizable Firefox ever. However, how come you just can't move the Back and Forward buttons? And I don't remember if Home, Refresh and Stop button needed the Classic Theme Restorer addon to move. I mean, this was like a step foward and 3 steps backward in that regard.

Beside that gripe, I kind of liked that menu. Removed most of the items to only leave Options, Bookmarks, Addons, X-Notifier (an addon that check emails on web services), History and downloads. I took the time to clean up my bookmarks and my "personal bar".

Finally, I moved the tabs to the top. Still getting used to it.

I've already given them negative feedback comments for the forced UI changes they've made and submitted my personal e-mail address to them so that they can contact me, if they so desire, though I don't really expect them to.

Often times people seem to write off someone's preferences that are no longer achievable in an updated version of software as just being resistance to change instead of acknowledging that someone might have justifiable/valid reasons for preferring something the way they were previously able to set it up and that maybe that is one of their reasons for using the software in the first place. (Kind of reminds me of the Windows 7/Windows 8 disagreements and differences of opinions out there.)

Anyway, I'll check out that survey too. Thanks for the link.

Firefox has the best addons available to a web browser, but Chrome is becoming more competitive as time goes.

I wish the tools responsible for syncing these apps/addons/extensions would also remember the data inside them. Will we ever get to see this in our lifetime?

Is it just me, or is the scroll bar less responsive than normal?
