Ultimate copy of chrome and sole reason of my in future to leave firefox...
If this uglification UI landed on Nightly very next moment I will uninstall Firefox and shift to other browser.


I will be leaving as well. Getting pretty fed up with Mozziline anyway. No one cares. Now we now what is in our update the next day.

Check out my Bug Report on this issue at 851268 – Content and chrome changes size if Windows DPI is >96

After reading it if you agree with me then add your 2 cents to the report.


Have you tried just using text zoom? If you're telling the OS to scale everything up by 150% then you're going to see raster images become blurry in any app.

Another thing that is driving me nuts is the inability to disable modern ui.

After months of using Nightly, I've switched back to the release branch. Using the Messaging app and being thrown into the Modern UI app was too annoying and the new big is better feature has me worried. Will this be the future of Firefox?

You only get the metro interface if you open Firefox by the metro UI, same as any other metro app (And IE, etc.)

I always used text zoom to increase the size of text while leaving the graphics alone. I use the addon NoSquint which let's you define a global default and a per site default. A few sites I use a combination of text zoom and full page zoom which is a great feature of NS.

This new feature in the Nightly acts is if you have your default for everything set to full page zoom at 125%. Sure I can use NoSquint to make content look the same as it always did but It can't control the chrome unless I use some CSS code.

You can stop Firefox from respecting the system setting, but I'm not sure why you would set the system setting to be 125% if you don't want apps to respect that.

But in IE you can change setting to always launch desktop version. And Chrome simply remembers which was launched the last time.

Latest FF beta has really smooth scrolling using the mouse wheel, feels like 60fps gaming vs the last release of FF19 @ 15fps

I noticed this too with my laptop touchpad. Totally night and day difference in scrolling smoothness in fx 20 vs fx 19, 20 is sooo buttery smooth, right now it has the best smooth scrolling of any desktop browser IMO.

firefox nightly for win/linux now has the new odinmonkey (asm.js) so javascript is a lot faster apparently. Mozilla has nearly caught up and exceeded in some instances in javascript performance according to arewefastyet.com :)

The nightly also supports Web Notifications, but nothing uses it since everybody seems to rely on the non-standard version Chrome provides (Firefox supports the same API as Safari does, which makes it even funnier).
