This Has Been My Go To Theme; Moz Blew it With FF 29 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I just tried the CC 29 beta. There were just too many small issues to stay with it. I'm not at all upset with Ken; what I am upset with is Moz NEEDLESSLY changing the visual architecture of the browser and breaking MOST of the available themes. The new stock theme is AWFUL.

I am currently using a combination of MX3 and Classic Compatibility Options; It's the only one of the current themes I can live with at all. And it required quite a bit of customization before I was relatively content.

I hope Ken finds the time to deal with Moz's changes and bring CC back, I've used it for years.

To be truthful, the only thing preventing me from switching to Opera for my main browser is NoScript.

Moz, go back to the visual style of FF28, add the security patches to it and work on the memory hog aspect and issues with freezing while running scripts rather than messing up the look of the browser.

Always Incompatible Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This garbage never works, because it is always incompatible with the latest version of Firefox.

FF 29 + CC 29.0a1 beta + CTR works well Rated 5 out of 5 stars

As a long-time user, I get a little antsy every time Firefox upgrades in a way that breaks the Classic Compact theme. I am currently running Firefox 29 with the beta version of Classic Compact and it seem to be working quite well. I am also using the Classic Theme Restorer add-on, which helps in some ways. I am remiss in not yet contributing, but plan to rectify that once I obtain new employment.

Information about obtaining the Classic Compact beta (from Ken B, the author) is near the end of the messages on the Classic Compact Add-on Support page: see

Can't live without it Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thanks for working on the FF 29 version! I am hereby donating $5 to the worthy cause.

FF29, No Thanks I'll stick to FF28.0b9 with CC Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Like most users of CC, I've use it since for the past 5years at least. The recent FF update of 29** has busted CC, so instead I've downgraded my FF to version 28.0b9 until Ken can get a work around which we all know he will. Unless of course Mozilla is intending to integrate CC into FF at some point?

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great extension, please make it work in FF29. FF is really ugly without CC!

Firefox Is Not Itself Without CC Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This theme is 90% of why I use Firefox. I'm going to be feeling a bit crazy until we get it back! Thanks to Ken for all the hard work, & no thanks to Moz for breaking it so badly with the unnecessary changes in 29.

Please Update for FF v.29 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Someone Wrote "FFox v29 is HORRIBLE", I think so,
Please Update.
I'm now using add-on "Classic Theme Restorer"+ another thame,by necessity.
"Classic Theme Restorer"+fixed "Classic Compact" will be doing good job, Ithink.

FFox v29 is HORRIBLE please update Classic Compact. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Classic compact is excellent but Firefox 29 doesn't support it, I went back to v28 just to use Classic Compact because the default theme in Firefox 29 is H-O-R-R-I-B-L-E.

The ONLY theme I use for Firefox Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Firefox is the only browser I use, when I have a say in the matter. However its interface has all this empty space and it's spread out so that the tool bars take up so much of my screen. While I understand this helps usability for the average person, it frustrates me how much it takes away from the viewable space for the web pages I'm viewing. When I first happened upon Classic Compact, I fell in love. The first time it wasn't available right after a Firefox update, I was heartbroken. I actually dread, just a little, when Firefox does a major update because then I have to wait on the amazing developer to be able to update.

I'm addicted to this theme because it condenses the amount of space everything takes up in the tool bars by having smaller icons and the ability to adjust how much space is between the elements. I especially love that you can tweak and adjust to match your needs. I can make everything super tiny, or I can leave it just a little bigger on a work computer so my coworkers don't complain (as much) when they hop onto my machine to do something.

Не работает на Firefox 29.0 Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Также отсутствует возможность прямого указания цветов фона и текста меню, вкладок вебстраниц и на панели закладок + "Author not verified", что странно, учитывая долгую историю дополнения. Windows 8.1 x64.

almost there Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I like the shrinkage and it helps a little with my main problem. (Most of the other options don't mean a lot to me.) But I had hoped to be able to change the layout at the top of the window. FF26 (WinXP) which I used for years, had the arrangement top-to-bottom of menu-address-bookmarks-tabs. Now it's changed to menu-tabs-address-bookmarks. I've been at this for decades and feel very silly, but after using FF all day for a few months with this layout, it is still always taking me that nanosecond extra to find what I want. Among your options, I chose WinXP, but that didn't do it. Is there an option I'm not seeing? If not, please accept this as a suggestion.
Thanks for your work tho,
(installed in FF 27.0.1 under Win 8.1)

Theme is excellent!
FEBE doesn't like it though. Won't do back ups.

Problem with CC and Vertical Toolbar Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I installed Classic Compact (save vertical pixels) after Vertical Toolbar (to put bookmarks on left and also save vertical pixels). The default buttons of vertical pixels are compacted, but the bookmarks not, and it disappears from VT. Try to install VT, drag bookmarks into its toolbar and install CC. I think the theme is not being applied to the bookmarks' buttons.

I removed it and it's still shrinking things, not showing the Extensions list.

There are two parts to remove: one under themes one under extensions

Classic Compact has two parts. There is the theme part, which is listed under themes and the extension part, which is listed under extensions. The theme part has to be disabled or removed for it to stop shrinking things. The extension part only provides additional configurable options for the theme.

Perfect Theme Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It's an excellent thing theme

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (24.0.2). 

Most colors are controlled by the OS

Most colors used by Classic Compact are actually determined by the OS theme, which may be causing less than ideal colors in this instance. With that said, Classic Compact is being completely rewritten for Firefox 29 using FF29's base theme code. As a result this issue may go away on its own because of the new code base.
