(Not directed at you specifically, just launching off your observation)

Heh, a lot of people (myself included) might say that the UI is in fact devolving. Moving towards something that might look more at home on a V-Smile device for 4 year old kids.

Yeah everyone is heading towards the playskool look with serious UI performance issues to boot. It's NOT a good thing.

And in the end, if every browser looks and acts the same, what the heck is the point?!? They should ALL forge their OWN paths WRT the UI (Though make the rendering stanardized of course)

First the horribly broken concept of searching from the URL bar and soon, no URL bar at all. Dumbed down interfaces for dumbed down users I guess...

Can anybody give me the link to get FF4 back ...Please ..

Thank you .
Use the Compatibility Reporter 0.8.5 which allows your addins to continue to run in FF 5.0 even if not officially compatible and allows you to report issues with said add-ons.

I had two add-on's reported as not compatible but they continue to work after the upgrade.

WOW ..OK ..I'll try it .
Thanks .

Aside from the graphics change, it works just fine (if not better than 3.6).

All I see in this thread is bitching, whining, and complaining about how pissed they are that Mozilla is being progressive and actually updating their products.
Specifically about the FF5 update as the "final" "security" update for FF4, you do realize they look EXACTLY the same? I am sure you don't since you haven't installed it to TRY the damn thing before bitching and switching to a new browser.

I am seriously sick of all this crap. HTFU or get a new browser, but please stop bitching about it on EVERY thread.

Let the flames flow.

+1, could not agree more and by using the Compatibility add-on even add-on's not officially compatible continue to run......Contempt prior to investigation does not serve anyone very well. Why bother to post anti-FF comments if you don't use it in the first place. Just move on....nothing to see here.

On the developers stand point ...they would love to hear from the ends users ..so they can improve their products ...
It's good both way .
"If no one points out the goods and bads ..how do they know where to improve ...? ...make sense...?"

Me for one ...as soon as i update to FF5 some of the add-ons stop working ..they need to know these ..don't they ..?

I actually like FireFox 5, clearing my browsing history is faster along with how long it takes to open. I don't have an issue with add-ons since I don't use many to begin with.

Totally agree.....however, when you upgrade from FF3 to FF4 or FF5 and the add-on not compatible window comes up that does not mean that the add-on was tested on FF5, it only means that the developer hasn't listed it as compatible with FF5, hence the add-on "compatibility reporter" and the ability to report if things do not work properly. What I was agreeing with was people who don't use FF and feel the need to bash the product in a FF thread which a lot of the prior negative comments were showing. FF does indeed need feedback from legitimate users so as to improve on the current product.

For people who just like to bash a product without using it I would recommend trolling on ZDnet where this is the status quo.
