Browser Woes  
Just installed Firefox 4, and omg ugly. Couldn't have rolled back fast enough.

Now just trying to fix all the mess that re-installing has caused. *sigh*

Tell me about it, I just fought with it for 2 hours only to end up back where I started (and not where I started before the 'upgrade', bah.

Stupid thing has lost all of my history and cookies. Now I have to re-login everywhere, omg. >_>

i know the feeling... i wanted to change back to IE8 once the install of IE9 finished :(

IE.... been a long time since I used that!

And yeah, it's so annoying. :( I've rolled back now, but you can guarantee they're going to harass me mercilessly about it.... but seriously, SO ugly.

I take this means I'll do better not to update my IE8?

Ugly? What's wrong with it? I'm curious since I use Firefox 3 when IE is being annoying... sigh. I wish I kept IE6...

You should use Firefox over IE, it's much better! (Just not v4!)

And it's just... really freaking ugly. It also shuffled the positioning of things around and it's a hindrance rather than an improvement. They even changed how you access the options and...eh. So untidy. Not to mention, even though my add-ons had compatibility updates, they still didn't look nice with FF4. >_>

I've not actually tried Chrome... I just access gmail on my regular browser. How come you use another browser just for gmail?

You have that many lammies in the system that you need CheckFox? ;) Wow!

I've stuck with FF4 but this has more to do with the fact that it didn't crash every time certain pages updated. I've not liked the look of the browser per say since ff2 so I'm not the fussed about the look change. Also none of my add ons were compatible.
kurenai_tenka: Watarikurenai_tenka on May 1st, 2011 11:13 am (UTC)
Maybe it's just me then. I really like 3.6, but 4 is so bleh. I like minimalism. :P
shazrashashazrasha on May 1st, 2011 11:17 am (UTC)
Well I only have the tabs and address bar visible so it's reasonably minimalist :). The Bookmark bar has always annoyed me as I keep accidentally pressing it and I only rarely need access to the main menu stuff.

The tricky bit for me was working out how the bookmarks were organised and added to. That is causing me a bit of fuss as I can't always locate things I've quick bookmarked.

You can fix most of it by re-enabling the menu bar, unchecking 'tabs on top', and installing a nice theme or persona.
kurenai_tenka: Watarikurenai_tenka on May 1st, 2011 11:53 am (UTC)
Isn't it all still quite chunky though? I've not used a theme or persona on 3.6, I just like it as it is. =/ I found the backgrounds on the top made the quick-bookmarks toolbar look ugly.
