My experience with Safari on Mavericks has been far from pleasant. From the horrible autofill (that is not quite fixed on 10.9.2) to many problems with scrips on many sites I visit.

 

I used to use Firefox heavily on Windows, so I returned to firefox and sideloaded all my old addins thanks to Sync. However the GUI is quite irregular. Is the Asutralis charged Aurora stable and compatible? Or maybe there's a Firefox skin that replicates the feel and looks of Safari?

 

Thankls in advance.

How about extension compatibility and profile usage? Does Aurora uses your default Firefox profile on OS X just like on Windows?

 

Yes it uses your Firefox profile. As far as extension computability goes, I haven't had any issues with my extensions.

But I thought Safari was faster than Firefox.

Yes, Aurora is stable. I've been using it for the past few months on my Mac. Download it here: http://www.mozilla.o...firefox/aurora/

Thanks a lot f0rk_b0mb. Using Aurora now. Truly feels faster and the GUi is more sane.

There's Firefox skins and userstyles that gives the look at feel of Safari. based on you using the version before Australis kicks in - after Australis these themes and userstyles won't work - that's my belief anyway.

 

These are what I used: Theme called Default Mod https://addons.mozil...don/defaultmod/

 

And for just having the default Firefox skin but with having a userstyle applied - then change the toolbar buttons to small rather than what they are normally:
