Windows 10: FF - Classic Theme Restorer may be dead by the end of 2017
FF - Classic Theme Restorer may be dead by the end of 2017
It looks like Mozilla have resumed their quest to make Firefox totally irrelevant.
Mozilla announced a couple of days ago that it plans to make Firefox support only WebExtensions add-ons by the end of 2017.
While that seems far far away right now, it is almost certain that things won't be ready by then. What I mean by that is that WebExtensions capabilities won't match those of Firefox's current system.
While popular add-ons like NoScript will likely be ported over thanks to Mozilla working with developers actively on implementing missing API features, the same cannot be said for other add-ons.
Soon there won't be even a single usable browser left.
The latest Pale Moon (27) is horrible on my PC (takes at least 10 seconds to load).
God only know how long it would take if you tried to run it from a HDD.
Seems like Google has "won the Internet" and everyone will be forced to use the abomination that is Chrome.
It took no more than 2 seconds (HDD) for Pale Moon (27) to start. It is still a work in progress, limping along because of the lack of prioritized support from the addon community. Mozilla and Firefox with the larger user base get first dibs.
We'll just have to move the goalposts on Google's inevitable browser conquest.
It turns out that add-on compatibility issues caused the long start up time.
My PM now starts in ~2 seconds.
As far as I am concerned FF can die right now. The browser refused to close, open in background. I had to sign out and back in again to open it.
This thread pertains to CTR, a particular Fx extension, and changes coming to Fx programming (rather than to trouble-shooting).
Having said that, most Fx performance problems originate in the user's profile, not in the program itself.
There are myriad reasons for this (e.g. extensions -- old, conflicting, broken; settings/configuration/preferences; hardware/networking problems; global plug-ins; accumulated temp files; security software conflicts; even malware; etc.).
There are several well-written, well-organized tutorials that detail diagnostics and troubleshooting steps.
They range from purely "debugging" (such as Mozilla Safe Mode), to creating a new profile, to wiping out everything and starting from scratch (rarely necessary).
I suggest starting here:

Is there any way to get the Classic Theme for WinX? I right clicked the desktop and looked under personalize for themes but all I found was high contrast themes.
Is the Windows Classic Look Theme (the theme introduced in Windows 95) included in Windows 10 release version?
If not, is there a way to integrate the theme and have it work properly?
I assume the Quick Launch bar is still available in...
Hi, I use Windows 7 and would like to upgrade to Windows 10, but in Windows 10 there is no gray classic theme known from Windows 98, which is still supported on Windows 7. I found some tutorials how to do it on Windows 8 and 10, but none of those...
