I like the bit where you type the URL to be above the tabs. The newer FFs have big rounded tabs above. The only way I could get it back was with the theme. Since I typed that there above yours what I posted then when I did it, I fired up Safari and grabbed the extensions that seem appropriate (Ghostery, Adblock Plus, Google opt out - others as well) and I'll see how it goes. Safari used to be pants back in the day but it has improved in mac OS (can't say for Windows).

Remember that dude who loved Opera? I wonder how he is getting on with that. Ward - I just remembered. He was a good guy.

After getting Safari very close to what I want and can get used to, I let FF do the 57 update. What were they thinking? Address bar below tabs? I expect some will like it but not yrs trly. I did a search on how to restore it but wasn't happy. It has now been fully uninstalled, plist files and everything. I'm another ex-user statistic. Shame, but there you go.

Try Firefox 52 ESR if you absolutely need Firefox until August 2018. I'd also recommend checking out Pale Moon and the test builds for K-Meleon 77, the latter of which I use on Windows XP :)

I hate Firefox 57, it looks like Edge and Chrome mashup (bad enough) and destroyed a lot of add-ons for WebExtensions: basically another way of making Firefox turned into a complete copy of Google Chrome. I don't understand why Mozilla developers don't discontinue their project and go and work for the Chromium project if they want to marry its UI and lack of customisation...

Just how many 'versions' are they planning to release? Still sounds like they're using folk who adopt their 'service' as Beta testers.

They're still trying to install W10 on me, but I'm sticking with what I know works, and like, and that's W7.

It does mean I'll never be able to upgrade but I don't have any need to as everything works fine.

Time to catch up on My Cat from Hell, where the owners are usually the problem...

Win 10 is it. MS won't, have said they won't, produce another version. Rather, they're upgrading twice a year. We've already had two new versions which might have been called Win 11 and 12 respectively. The updates were huge and took a while to install. Windows Creators Update was the last and there will be another one soon. It's a very stable, functional OS; I've no idea why you're having bother, Alex.
