if Firefox is losing users, i reckon most of them are Linux users going over to Chrome cause of Flashplayer.  i know its been reported an i suffer from these random lockups also that if i click on a URL an it opens in another Tab, the browser will lockup.

I don't know if it's just me, but the home/download buttons are stretched on today's nightly (Windows). It seems to be related to the Adblock Plus icon in the toolbar as it goes back to normal when removed.

Looks like they've fixed the issue I've noticed for about a month now with Australis with the interface black boxing at random. :D

does anyone know if Mozilla/Firefox Devs are looking at getting rid of the old Netscape ( NPAPI ) from Firefox? i believe Google are working on that with Chrome

They're either going to get rid of any plugin interface (Plugins suck and are going the way of the dinosaur, there isn't Flash on mobile platforms anymore, Apple won that battle), or move it over to one based around web standards (So if a plugin wants to do 3D drawing, then the browser just hands it a plain WebGL context, etc.). Google wants to replace NPAPI with their own creation to lock plugins to Chrome (See Flash on Linux, only works with Chrome)

Major new feature in tonight's Nightly.

Normally when a page threw up these dialogs it took focus for the entire window, now you can just close the tab and don't have to worry about the site trying to keep your on their page. They're hoping to get it into 30 because it's such a big deal.

Yeah this is one of my biggest annoyances with firefox, I'd be very happy if this makes it into 30.

Right but he specifically asked for using stylish that's why I referred him to that link. He only wants to revert stuff partially not wanted to change whole stuff and adding another addon to its inventory that's what I think.

Actually, if you're good at using the userChrome.css technique, you could apply Firefox-interface changing userstyles without using Stylish.

Latest Nightly shows close buttons on tabs no matter what the about:config setting is.  Is this a temporary bug or permanent?
