I am livid!!!!!!!!!!!!! mad.gifmad.gifmad.gif

I like the Australis design I used the theme before any ways. But Waterfox 3.0 has completely scrambled my ALL IN ONE SIDEBAR. That is the major reason why I even use firefox at all. Besides the 25 add-ons I use but the ones I use all the time are on my AIOS. Most importantly my bookmarks has disappeared from my AIOS.

I have used Waterfox from the first build when I didn't even have grey hair yet and I was very patient when this project went through 2 years without an update allowing every other browser including 32 bit browsers to catch up and even surpass any speed advantage 64bit browser once had but to scramble the entire look and FUNCTION of the browser in my opinion is just too much to bear for me today. I was so frustrated last night trying to repeatedly fix AIOS and all the add-on buttons that I went to bed thinking of OTHER browsers to switch to. After all these years I can't believe I am thinking about switching to Palemoon thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif

Opps redface.gif didn'yt mean to finish yet..

What i dislike the most about thios update is the new "Customize" feature because it just not working correctly. I am happy to read that I am not the only one here feeling completely blind sided and having difficulty because their browser is all scrambled.

Rant over but still disappointed. Most likely I am going back to waterfor 28 until I read here that these things have been fixed.

I too am glad to read I'm not alone in having issues with v30.0. Seems the biggest problem is that tweaks made to Firefox v30.0 to "offset" the problematic Chrome-like UI do NOT successfully port to Waterfox 30.0 like they did with the older version 28.0. Why I haven't a clue. frown.gif But suffice it to say that I too found the challenge to "re-tweak" the UI in v30.0 both unwelcome and extremely irritating. Which is why, as stated in my earlier post, I reverted back to v28.0. As I have things setup to reflect my preferences and it's not broke (even fixed the crashing Plugin Container by disabling the protected mode in Flash), I am standing pat with 28.0 period!

Mozilla made a huge mistake in trying to emulate Chrome. And now Mr. Alex has elected to follow suit for which I am sincerely sorry.

Alex has not "tweaked" any part of the Firefox 30.0 UI. He has simply created a 64-bit version of it.

Alex stated that categorically in a previous post, which the whingers here apparently cannot be bothered reading.
If you had, you would know that directing your rants at Alex is utterly stupid and unproductive.

If you have a problem with the Australis UI then at least have the brains to direct your hissy-fits to the right place -> Mozilla.

Those who yearn for the old Firefox can use Waterfox 28.0, Firefox 28.0 etc. or even the Classic Theme Restorer addon mentioned multiple times on this forum.
The rest of us "got a life" and moved on.

Sure the new Australis UI required a bit of re-tweaking but it was hardly rocket science.

I am perfectly happy using Waterfox 30.0 and the Australis interface.

i guess we need to post that:

you can use the excellent 'classic theme restorer' and 'classic button restorer' addon extensions to 'fix' the abortion that is australis.

after almost every other post.

and also after every australis moan:

Waterfox is NOT coded or programmed by mr. alex, it is straight mozilla firefox code. he does not and is not going to change the code. australis id the brainchild of a group of out of touch zombies at mozilla who have been overly affected by chrome and are doiung their best to turn FF into chrome. if i or most of y'all wanted chrome, we'd use it and not a firefox chrome wannabe.

it does no good to moan about the changes MOZILLA (not mr. alex) has made. moan at the real culprits on the mozilla forum or direct to mozilla. we here can sympathize but all you do here is waste space.

there, that's MY moan for today.

i run both waterfox (default browser) and the nightly x64 33.01a firefox build and it still looks almost like my FF of old. (see attached) they both use the same profile and extensions. and 33.0a1 australis does have a few fixes to theat horrible 'customizer'. which is still a work in progress.

my 'look' - and yes, i can have text and icons up there if i wanted.


p.s. - i am not a coder, programmer and not in any way affiliated with mozilla or mr. alex.

Well, AIOS isn't continued developed, the author have closed his forum. please use another add-on, waterfox isn't the problem.
Maybe try omnisidebar, it hasn't of vertical bar but you can put icon on horizontal bar and don't changed the page size. thumb.gif
