Windows 7: Mozilla Introduces Firefox 29 the Most Customizable Ever

This is a promising version of FireFox. Some of my extensions don't play well, none the less I like the update better then the past three updates.

I've noticed this too. From what I've seen in various places, this is counted as a bug on the Mozilla forums.
Sad fact is, this bug has been present for a long time. At least version 21, and I know it was there earlier than that. They've known about it for asome time now, and haven't tried to fix it.

Regarding the UI. Mozilla took the UI from FireFox for Windows8 which never came out of beta and instead went straight to the grave and implemented it into FireFox 29 which was a smart, IMO. Although I'm still trying to adjust the UI to my flavor

I have two problems.

1. I have lost the link preview (when you mouse over a link you can part of the page address) from the bottom task bar. And I do not see it in the top right hand corner.

2. Although I have Menu Bar turned off, and Title Bar off in the Customize options, I still have the space it takes active.
See the photo, the space between the Firefox menu button and the search windos should be gone, or at least it was in the previous version, but in stead it's like that all the way across.

Thanks for this. It took a while to figure out how to set everything up the way I want it, but fortunately I was eventually able to.

It works fine for me, and my missus loves it, what she knows or cares about computers does not go past the shopping, outings and activities and email. Has very little computer knowledge but took to FF 29 right away.

Horses for courses, what are the technical objections?
I didn't try it because I don't like how it looks. I don't like yellow cars either so I won't buy one.

Of course this doesn't mean anything with regard to the technical operations of FireFox or a yellow car.

I tried FF 29 and went back to FF 28.
To much tinkering for me. Never did figure out how to get the back and forward arrows to the left instead of in the middle.
Took two days to find the update page button.
I don't need the hassle.

This version actually got me to switch from Chrome. I still like Chrome but FF is simply passing them by. Maybe Google has too much going on and FireFox can focus more on their browser? I don't know. But the layout of 28 and prior always made me stick with Chrome. The developer tools for FF put it over the top.

FWIW, this new Firefox loads faster than the old: 1 second (one-thousand-one) vs. 2.5 seconds.

Of course Google Chrome loads almost instantly, so fast the screen sizzles.

I loaded it in one of my W7 VMs (I created a snapshot before installing).

I played with it for about 10 minutes and then I rolled back my VM.
