I'm just wondering why Firefox feels it is necessary to keep
changing the user interface on a fairly regular basis. Is there a
test group out there that is screaming for UI/UX changes? I've
never met anyone who likes UI changes (even good ones) and everytime
I read an article about a Firefox UI change, the comments are always
Is there a way for people like me who support Firefox to give our
opinions to the Firefox elite who makes decisions on this sort of
I work with regular end users (home and small business). Do you
know what they want in a browser? Speed is the first thing they
want. The faster a page renders, the happier they are. Then they
want it to be simple, and not change once they learn it. Then
compatibility with websites. Then stability. I've never heard one
of them say "you know, I'd really like it if the UI changed".
I'm also very tired of changes (like the printing one that happened
recently) that meant I had to field support calls on "how come my
printing doesn't work anymore?" As an unpaid Firefox evangelist,
it'd be nice if Mozilla worked to make my life easier.
Please Mozilla, focus on the important stuff and leave the UI alone.
