Those "stupid DEVS" have provided you with a very impressive product
in the eyes of many. Just because you don't agree with something
they've done does not make them "stupid". You making that comment
would come closer to the definition of stupid in the opinion of many
I'm sure.

I don't know if every change is driven by user demand. Some may not
be, but I'm sure a good number of them are. With a user base as large
as what FF has, you (the end user) has to expect that some of the
changes that you see won't be what you want. That doesn't mean it's
not what someone else wanted. It's impossible to please everybody.
Therefore if you are that displeased with something in the latest
release, your options are 1 - suck it up and live with it, 2 - roll
back to a prior version, 3 - switch browsers, 4 - unplug your
