    Does anyone know if it is possible for someone to re-code classic theme restorer to work with FF 57? I sure hope so as that is the only reason i am using waterfox.
    Pale Moon has Tabs below the Address Bar (you don't need to install CTR).

    If you are using CCleaner, untick Site preferences. Selecting that setting deletes your Site preferences.

    Make that annoying 'Overlink Status Message' in the bottom left corner transparent:

    Why would you want to get rid of that?

    I hate it when you can't see what a link is actually pointing to.

    is there a way to replace opened tabs with new ones instead of adding to them? An extension use to be able to do it called openintabs-erase in FF. Does Pale moon have such an extension?

    thx

    i used firefox since it was 'phoenix' back in the old days.

    the mozilla group has been, for the last couple of years, destroying FF. somehow they think that turning it into a bad chrome clone will somehow impress the deplorable end users that whine on about wanting it to keep all the customizable things that made us like FF in the first place. the 'developers' are hellbent on ignoring users because they know what's best for use dumb end users.

    if i had wanted chrome, i'd install chrome.

    well, when they removed the extension api and all my favourite extensions stopped working, and my profile crashed, i thought, the heck with this. fighting to keep moz from changing everything beyond recognition ain't worth the effort anymore. FF is a memory now.

    i installed google chrome. found a few extensions that make it just about bearable, it's crap, but it works, sort of. i have one tab open for this post and 22 chrome.exe processes plus three other subordinate procs showing in my task manager and using a half gig of memory.

    Particularly for anyone worried about losing the Roboform toolbar with Webkit coming, and Classic Theme Restorer, here's Waterfox v55:

    Note: I have Roboform 7.29.28.8 in the tray, whilst the extension, which I pinched from the explorer window shown (where I have Roboform installed) by rt clicking the xpi/Open With/Waterfox

    Note though how the older addons are still marked 'legacy' - that was unexpected.

    Note about Roboform in FF v57:
