Hi,

I had a few questions before I consider going from my very outdated version to the new 'better?' thing.

Does it have dark skin choices? (Migraines demand dark screens)

Does it allow a bookmark bar above the tabs?

Yes, there is a dark option.

As for Bookmarks, I don't know. I don't keep my bookmarks visible.

Thank you Sephie. The dark is a good start. I go bonkers without having all my quick links bar available.

Yeah, I think there is a dark version.  The bookmarks... oh, the bookmarks!  In the top right corner I have this ugly thing that looks like 3 lines, with a 4th slanted.  Click on that and it shows your recent history, and access to bookmarks.  At least they fixed the issue I was having with it only showing so many bookmarks and not being able to delete them.  However, in general, I give the new version 2 thumbs down.

I have it for my mac so the interface is a bit different I think, but I have a skin installed on it (or... loaded in? I dunno) that's space themed (so it's pretty dark). You can customize like that I believe. I also think, at least in my version, you can add or pull away buttons from the interface (I've removed all my buttons except reload and the back button, because too much going on confuses me). I can't speak to how it acts on a PC, but I figure it has similar options?

I think there are options.  There is a customize button somewhere, but being the computer idiot I am, I haven't figured any of it out.

Ugg no. That wouldn't work for me. My bookmarks are extensive. I do not want to download it until I am sure I even want it. I am using an older version of Firefox because of the needed add-ons. The only really big one is the bookmark bar.

This is what a bookmark bar looks like...single click opens the new tab for places I visit many times a day.

I edited mine, it's a bit roundabout, but I made it so that I could add bookmarks right under the URL bar like yours is. -now has to figure out how to undo it- So if you downloaded it, I could probably help you sort out how to do it.

You're welcome. Sorry I couldn't be more helpful with your bookmark situation. :-(

No reason to be sorry *hugs* I am the sorry one that is so compulsive I need my special things all in the right places.

Thank you Lex. I'll get back to you as soon as this headache clears enough that I can deal with spending a day upgrading my browser. I know I will need at least that much time.

Oh, does it automatically save all my established bookmarks and passwords? O.O Or do I need to save those somewhere first for importing later?

I'm not sure if it saves your past ones; to be safe I'd make a document with all them in it first in case nothing is saved over when it's upgraded.

I have version 55.0.3 I don't have the newest newest update, actually. I just realized. I can be the guinniapig and test it tomorrow and tell you for sure, though. I only have like... two bookmarks (and they were an accident) so if I loose them it's no big deal.

Oh! Well, tomorrow or Monday at the latest I'll be your tester and upgrade to it and see what happens. If you compile a list of questions I'll do what I can to test whatever I can in the transfer :D

All of my bookmarks carried over.  (Gee, I seem to have a lot of them.  I should really go through them some day.)

Oreo - here is what mine looks like. Thanks to your example I was able to cut down on some stuff! It looks similar to yours and I have tons of bookmarks that all seemed to port over okay. I was able to get a dark theme as well. The only thing I can't seem to figure out how to do is move the bookmarks above the tabs.
