Exactly! My Book Mark add-on quit working. I spent half of Saturday patching things up.
I was of the information from Mozillas site, that you had to "remove" version 29 first,before going back to an earlier version. Is that not true?

You don't have to do an un-install to change it back. Just choose 27 or 28 it takes just a minute to fix.

Thanks! It worked. Went back to "27". Funny thing,now Mozilla prompts me to upgrade my browser! I fixed that by turning-off "updates"

Why do I have to install an add-on to get the add-on bar back? Sounds idiotic.

Uninstall 29.
Install 24.5 ESR: [link to ftp.mozilla.org]
Old UI and all security updates via a separate update channel.

Seams to be a disaster for the developers: [link to input.mozilla.org (secure)]

And if you like to comment there, too: [link to input.mozilla.org (secure)]

Yep, that is what I run, but -
[link to www.mozilla.org]
support for 24.x ESR will cease in October 2014.
You'll then have to take 31.x ESR or 33.x standard, both of which will have some evolution of the current UI unless the users complain loudly enough to have them re-enable the settings they are removing.

Better to complain now so that by October and the next ESR release they've produced something useable.
I wasn't happy they removed the old download app from ver.19 (separate undocked mini-window) but it could be restored in about:config until they removed the coding for it completely.
I could even live with that deletion and I got comfortable with version 28 and now they've started their idiotic removing of features again.

I may have to check out Opera again as Firefox is making a good attempt at destroying FF.
Maybe go back to LINX...

Have fun.

I have FF 24.x on a Linux live CD I am using.

FF STILL seems to have an issue with saving webpages smoothly (more often than not it takes much too long and the browser seems to be affected in some weird way by it).

There is also the problems of tabs loading. If I try to load two tabs quickly one after the other this can often be cause enough for FF to freeze completely and even make freeze the OS. When that happens, I just have to wait for several minutes until it is working again... I already commented on this earlier in this thread.

And I didn' say anything about "non-responsive scripts" yet ! You know, everything freezes, including the OS, and if you don't want to wait 10 minutes or much more, you just have to reboot... so that's what I usually do. And after a long time, you get a message (sometimes more) telling you this script doesn't respond...

I noticed BTW often it is Youtube (with a script related to html5 player) and Google which seem to give this kind of problems... earlier today at some moment I got several messages of this kind (after having to wait a long time of course) and 2 of them were scripts from Google.com.

It is amazing a browser which has reached vs. 24 (TWENTY-FOUR !) wouldn't have solved that a long time ago, isn't it ?

Version 29 is obviously the start of the gay version of Firefox since the gays took over Mozilla.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1474383

If there is something such as "a gay version of FF" I think it started much earlier. A few years ago in fact, with 16 or so.

firefox is bloated. It use to be the best browser.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 42974191

Yes. Recently I have noticed a memory use of hundreds of MB for FF, even as much as 500 MB and more (but it is possible this may be related to the fact I have been using a Live CD lately).
