i guarantee, you'll stay with firefox. i tried to leave Firefox a month ago, extensions an Themes/Persona's are much better in Firefox than they are in Chrome. but i will say if i dont like this New InContent stuff i will def leave firefox. but all in all, the way the computer market is going its all Mobile or tablets or Touch Screens . the Desktop is Dying. just look at Virus8 an Gnome3 an Unity, there all made for those 3 devices. there is No Money in the Desktop no more. companies like Mozilla an Google an Microsoft will make there money from people buying either 1 of those 3 devices. lets not forget the Ipad. Apple will soon only get there money from that to an Mobile

Is it the same version of Australis that was designed a few years ago?

It rounded corner UI.. with several small elements like removal of menu button, bookmark star out of address bar, No search box etc.

No doubt about it that today people want to go more and more portable with less hassle of things to interact. Future is mobile no doubt about it.

Actually mozilla devs are now more focused and putting options through users throat these days. Change is good but not that change which is in present since several months.

I will definitely shift to other browser to support them even if I have to compromise on other stuff.

Personally , I don't find it a copy of Chrome.. Rather a better approach compared to it. Also when I tried on UX , searching tabs became so darn easy , really nice and intuitive design I would say , it just happens that it has curves and "connected" tabs to nav bar (concept since Firefox 3.7 I guess) and it somehow looks similar to Chrome (okay , who am I lying to , they just probably redid the chrome design to make it more human and less machine like).

Anyways , if it gives more performance than the actual theme , it is a big plus

Guys, I cannot launch Nightly in Metro mode. The weird thing is I can launch it on my mum's pc with a crappy resolution.

My pc is: Q6600, 3GB RAM, W8 PRO, 1680x1050, fresh install W8+Nightly.

When I launch it via Task Manager, it opens and closes again showing only the Nightly logo....

I don't know if it's just me, but everything is bigger in today's nightly. At first I thought I had the text zoomed and tried to reset with no success. Looks awful. Any ideas on how to fix it?

Edit: https://bugzilla.moz...g.cgi?id=851268 (Setting layout.css.devPixelsPerPx to 1 fixes the issue.)

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).
