Waterfox 55.0.2: 22 August [Firefox 64-Bit] - Page 613

post #6121 of 7359
hi
I'm currently running waterfox 28.
I had updated a while back but when I saw that I could no longer use just text for menus and the tabs were no longer on the bottom. (I couldn't find a control to fix those things)
I stopped updating and rolled my system back.
Have either of those items been asked about before?

Pale Moon does this by default, and I expected the same when I installed Waterfox.
I did this so people could transition seamlessly between Firefox and Waterfox, so no-one would have to hassle with moving profiles.

Well at least giving a warning about it during or after the installation would be nice. Maybe with a link on how to setup multiple profiles.

What I'm thinking is, installing a new browser to be greeted with my old settings for another browser is not what I expected. It was confusing to see that clicking the new Waterfox shortcut loaded up my last session on Firefox.

Try this awesome add-on: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/classicthemerestorer/

Cool beans! I'll give that a shot when I have time to do a system restore point.. back up just in case I need to roll back again. I have a lot of system modifications and user styles (stylish) going on because of bad vision (need text.. can't see icons well) , that need to be compatible with the addon.

You can still use text for menus with the new UI by following this guide: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/what-happened-to-the-file-edit-and-view-menus

As for tabs I'm not quire sure what you mean but maybe the add-on NASSOOR said would help.

I did try that at one point but unfortunately people didn't like it and complained. Although I definitely need to include an FAQ point about it! Thanks for bringing it up, it had slipped my mind that maybe people wouldn't know why that was happening.

Okay great! There are built in accessibility features if you're unaware: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/accessibility-features-firefox-make-firefox-and-we

Hello World,

So the damned waterfox did it again... It updated, forcibly I might add(said it was some stupid security update and didn't give me the choice to not install it), and now everything is messed up again. Tabs are on top again(even though in about:config tabsontop is still set to false), the adress toolbar looks aweful... is there any way to just revert back to an older/previous version?(preferably a fast&easy way that doesn't require an uninstall)
I'm seriously starting to hate developers more and more each day(yahoo, google, waterfox, etc.) why can't they understand that people are set in their ways and don't like things to change?! Don't they have anything like that in their lives that they can relate to, are they even still human?!?!

Thank you.

In defense of MrAlex, he primarily recompiles the Mozilla Code for 64 bit operating systems. So, if the Mozilla Foundation (Firefox) decides to change the UI, Waterfox users get the new UI by default.

As to going back to the old version, you likely do not need to. There are a number of postings in this thread about add-ons and tweaks to change the UI back to the older look and feel.

Note that the update from 32.0 to 32.0.3 went seamlessly on my systems running Waterfox.

You may have no choice but to switch to Pale Moon if you want to gain more control over your browser than the base Firefox code offers.

You can always use palemoon has old ui and 64bit problem is it has alot of comparability issues with addons.

Just wait till this hits live... New options menu no longer old one.

Any one is facing a problem with playing YouTube videos after updating to Waterfox 32.0.3? Especially/Not just with using HTML5 for youtube videos.

Edit: Rolled back to WaterFox 32.0 and the problem has disappeared.
