But, I'm making this post because of the way people seem to approach this problem, and regularly causing a lot of unnecessary and unwarranted negativity that really doesn't help us remaining focused on making Pale Moon better.
- Pale Moon evolves. This includes visual changes to the default theme, the way icons are displayed or controls in the browser.
- This evolution will continue, whether you, as a user, might have objections to it or not -- Pale Moon is not and has never been (or meant to be) a static product, and it will have to adapt to its environment.
- We are always open to suggestions, if they are offered in a gentlemanly fashion. We do not respond well to "OMG how dare you change your browser so it's no longer exactly the same?" or "Your features X and Y suck!" or similar. We do respond well to clear rationales and explanations why something is not working for you.
- If it's just a matter of personal taste, then you're likely not going to get X or Y back unless you do it yourself (e.g. through a theme or userChrome.css). We generally make these changes for good underlying reasons beyond personal preference, although (see previous point) we're more than happy to listen to you if you have good reasons to dislike something.
- Whenever something you use every day for extended periods of time changes, it'll need adjusting to. That is just human psychology at work. Give it some time for your mind to adjust, like, a couple of weeks. If after that you're still having issues with something being jarring or not working for you, bring it up, but please, for the love of Pete, keep your knee-jerk reactions under control
Thanks for reading.
