  • Excellent list VG. Thank you so much for it.

  • Yes, excellent list. I'm glad to have a guide to returning FF4's interface back to the way it's supposed to be :-), but I'm going to wait a while to install FF4 so that some of the inevitable extensions incompatibilities shake themselves out.

  • suggest to also add stratiform: addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/stratiform/

  • You're missing the most important tip: How to revert to Firefox 3.x.x (whatever the latest 3 version was). I've been twiddling a while with 4 final and, for the first time in years, removed everything Mozilla from my computer. A lot of things which I needed to be done in a specific way simply did not work. FF3.x.x was "good enough" for me.

  • Firefox 4 GUI is awesome.
    Even more minimalist & better looking than modern Firefox 48, if you ask me.

    Firefox 48 (2016) > 43.12 mb installer
    Firefox 4.0 (2011) > 12 mb

    In 5 years, over 3.5x larger, to display the same thing.
    Text on web pages.

    Sure, there are things such as HTML5, but I don't think that warrants close to 4x bigger installation files.

    I like minimalist apps, but recent variations of Chrome/Firefox/Opera feel like they are blowing up into heavyweight whales.

    Maybe they should scrap everything, & start all over again?

    Version 4 to 5x of Firefox were awesome!!!
