Should I update to latest version? Ohodnoceno 5 z 5 hvězdiček

Dear Developer,
Thanks for all your hard work. This extension has been great!
As Mozilla seems to be making future development/updates of really great extensions “precarious” I wanted to find out if this update will be problematic or breakdown in the future? In other words should I stay where I’m at?
I’m currently using the last version. I’ve disabled auto updates because new FF compliance's have already broken a few extensions (or will cause breakdown in the future). The first example of this coming to mind is/was X-Notifier. The last two versions are FF compliant, but don’t function. They…. suck. Not the developers fault, he warned months ago this would happen with Moz changing policies and updates. Yet everyone initially screamed at him when it broke down. There was a temporarily a work around, rolling back 2 versions. This made everything work again, but then with another FF update, even the legacy version only partly works.
So In regards to your extension, would you recommend updating to the latest version, or stay with the previous one which I’m running?
My Machine; Window 7 64 bit, latest FF 64 bit version for windows.
One more issue, and if you don’t have time for this one no problem.
I’ve read that if users install FF 52 ESR (I’m not sure what it is and if it’s secure), all legacy versions will work. Wouldn’t using a legacy version of FF, as well as extension present a security risk?
This really sucks for FF developers and users. I really hate Chrome, it’s heavy on resources, super proprietary, nosy and intrusive as hell. I have no idea why Moz is killing the best part of FF, the extensions. Especially security and utilities extensions. The other stuff I could care less.
Also, if Moz is going to make life difficult to impossible (depending on which developer you’re talking to, and their extension) for developers, why don’t you all go to Opera? I’m betting a lot of people would follow.
It’s my second choice browser, and although it’s Chromium based, it’s lightweight and even has a VPN built in. But they have mostly lame apps.
You’re opinion/feedback on this whole Moz turning FF into Chrome and how to proceed would be appreciated!
Thanks for every thing!

Mozillas upcoming changes will cause Firefox to stop supporting legacy add-ons like CTR. There is no way to make user interface changing add-ons compatible to WebExtensions.

I do not recommend to stay on "outdated" Firefox versions just to keep some add-ons working, because of security issues. However using Firefox ESR does not mean switching to outdated/legacy versions of Firefox, but just switching to a version, that does not receive feature updates for almost a year. It does receive all security updates though. The current main ESR build is based on Firefox 52 and received every security update "default" Firefox 53 (=ESR52.1) and 54 (=ESR52.2) got too.

I suggest to switch your main browser to Firefox ESR, so all your favorite add-ons work up to summer 2018 and additionally install Firefox Portable, where you can keep track of how Mozillas changes will affect your add-ons and browser usage after Firefox 57 release.

Chrome, Opera, Vivaldi are all Chromium based browsers and share the same add-ons restricted to only modify web content like Firefox' upcoming WebExtensions. Most popular browser add-ons to block/modify web content are already present for those browsers for a long time.

Look here
This post of mine is also linked on add-ons main page and on CTRs prefwindow (see "CTR & Firefox 57+" button) and sums up my thoughts about browsers future changes.

One of only two things keeping me using Firefox Ohodnoceno 5 z 5 hvězdiček

This extension and the fact that bookmarks are a persistent sidebar keep me with Firefox over Chrome. Once CTR goes, so does FF. I have been using it since the original Netscape days but since the Mozilla devs don't care about what their users want, screw 'em. I'm gone forever. Probably head to SeaMonkey/Pale Moon (if they don't follow FF into hell) or Opera. Nice knowing you Mozilla. RIP

Love this this extention Ohodnoceno 5 z 5 hvězdiček

How would i go about adding a wallpaper of my own to the new tab page?

Thanks Aris. Some how hope you can come up with something like CTR but for FF57 and beyond, may all of the luck you can muster drive you to create :)

Add this to CTRs custom css area (use the path your image is stored in):

@-moz-document url-prefix(about:newtab) {
html body {
background: url("file:///C:/images/image.jpg") !important;

Fixes huge margin around buttons Ohodnoceno 5 z 5 hvězdiček

This add-on is essential (like find bar tweak) for my firefox and I might hve to switch to another browser in summer 2018 when Firefox drops the compatibility with these plugins.

Since the current Linux and Windows version of Firefox, suddenly all movable buttons get a margin below and above then, which makes the toolbars taller.

How it I expected it (captured in edit mode):

This add-on can fix this issue: go to Classic Theme Restorer settings - General UI - Page1 - Small buttos (first checkbox)

There were some changes in Firefox. Navigation toolbar buttons on all current Linux versions look like on your screenshot. This add-on is not responsible for that.

Small button mode offers small buttons, while big button mode doesn't. However CTR offers an option to reduce navigation toolbar size, if using movable back/forward buttons.

Switch to an up-to-date CTR beta, it might fix things too.

Movable back button makes menubar taller Ohodnoceno 5 z 5 hvězdiček

Movable back-forward button makes the menubar taller, but if 'reduce navigation toolbar height' activated, the menubar becomes significantly smaller and I don't really like it. I want the correct height when the back button is not movable. Is this possible?

Download Button Ohodnoceno 5 z 5 hvězdiček

One of the new changes of Firefox 54 was
"Simplified the download button and download status panel"

Could you add an option to restore the old download button that showed progress of downloads, please?

Thanks in advance.

I'm sorry, legacy Firefox add-ons are dying and will not work anymore in Firefox 57+. I suggest to switch to Firefox 52 ESR to keep all legacy add-ons and all of their features up to summer 2018.

Add this code to CTRs custom css area to restore the progress in Firefox 54, where it is still present, but hidden. It is gone in Firefox 55+.

#downloads-button #downloads-indicator-progress-icon {
display: none !important;
#downloads-button:-moz-any([progress], [counter], [paused]) #downloads-indicator-icon{
visibility: hidden !important;
#downloads-button:-moz-any([progress], [counter], [paused]) #downloads-indicator-progress-area {
visibility: visible !important;

This is a need for people that like customizing their browser Ohodnoceno 4 z 5 hvězdiček

I been using this extension for years now, and i don't think i could live without it now. i love how i can change almost anything and that is something i LOVE to see more in browsers.
this was also a reason why im staying on firefox 53, as i don't think i could use firefox without it (like i said), sad how firefox just killed of a extension as good as this for "reasons" that wasn't needed.
thank you for making this.

Thank you! Ohodnoceno 5 z 5 hvězdiček

Every time Firefox updates, I jump straight to CTR to fix what Firefox doesn't. I like the tabs below the location bar. I like square tabs. I like less wide location bar popup menu.

You have saved me, and saved Firefox IMO. When it is no longer available I will mourn it. I'll also dump Firefox because why shouldn't a user be able to adapt the browser to how they work instead of being forced to use it in less productive and more irritating ways?

Tabs above the location bar... What are Firefox thinking of?!?!?!

Absolutely indispensable! Ohodnoceno 5 z 5 hvězdiček

I don't know if I had kept using Firefox without CTR. It's just a shame that we might have to do without it from Firefox 57 on...

this is only thing why I prefer Firefox over Chrome. If they drops this kind of extensions then no reason for stay on FF anymore((

"Downloads" text button on toolbar Ohodnoceno 4 z 5 hvězdiček

Why does the "Downloads" text button no longer work? It just flashes at me when I click on it. "Ctlr-J" works, "Downloads" in the "Tools" drop-down menu works and when I convert "Downloads" on the toolbar in text form to the "down-arrow" icon form, it also works, but as soon as I convert it back to text form, it stops working. I have tried placing it in multiple locations on the Location Toolbar and in Additional Toolbars. I have checked About:config for "True/False" options and I have tried removing the "Downloads" button and reinserting it, both manually (drag & drop) and via context menus. Must be a glitch, but I don't see any reference to it anywhere.

Please help! I am partially blind and NEED text-only buttons. I can't use picture, symbol or "emoji" style icons.

Is your location bar in a visible place or hidden?
Using CTRs first text only mode causes downloads buttons popup to appear at location bars start position. If the location bar is hidden, this might not always work properly.

CTRs second text mode uses Fx 29s default code, which does not hide the downloads buttons. In that case downloads popup is where it is meant to be.

Both modes show downloads popup for me.

Have you tried to setup a new browser profile? Only install CTR, switch to one of the text modes and run tests again.

Please use one of the available support options (Github, Forum, Email) for discussing issues, because AMOs add-on review area is not meant for chats or discussions and does not offer easy ways to respond. (You would have to either edit your current review or to write a new one).

THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING Ohodnoceno 5 z 5 hvězdiček

Time will see what'll happen when 57' comes.

Thank you for the continued and advanced support.

Great tool. To reach perfection, it would only be necessary to make the url bar icons movables.

CTR offers movable back, forward, stop and reload buttons. Which one of the default urlbar buttons do you miss?

F*** u mozilla Ohodnoceno 5 z 5 hvězdiček

They really don`t care for us any more so at home 5 computers will stay for ever on version 52... and updates will be disable for ever good bye Mozilla and your stupid changes. If they think I will use Firefox without this addon they are VERY wrong maybe when HTML 10 or when all pages will not work any more and I will be forced to update Firefox. But if everything will works I will stay on version that this addon and Tab Groups will works as long as possible and for Mozilla I just don`t care any more because they are only good for ruining addons nothing more. They removed so many awesome features with that sh*** Australis and that was not enough? They need to ruin everything. In a few updates Firefox will be the same as Chrome or IE so where will be the point using Firefox if will be the same as all others browsers!

No multi-row in year 2017 is insane internet speed is soo high and I am still forced to using 5-10 tabs LOL!

So yes without this addon no thanks and my father would kill me he use 30+ tabs and without multi-row no go!!

I will not even calculate how many good addons will go for example "All-in-One Sidebar" this is the best sidebar ever made for browsers. This addon made browsing very fast and easy I can leave downloads, history or favorites open and I can still at the same time reading the website. What could be more easy than this clicking every time favorites and every time searching last folder I used?! Yea sure no thanks... or when I see browsers with new tab for favorites, history oh good! Every time user need to open a tab and then clicking on page he like to open. With sidebar all this is soo easy in settings I set when I move mouse to the left sidebar is automatically open -> perfect I think we could say awsome!

この拡張機能(Add-on)を愛しています! Ohodnoceno 5 z 5 hvězdiček

Firefox が v29 で、 Chrome 風の「UI」に激変させたが、果たして、その仕様変更は、功を奏したのでしょうか?

Windows 10 絡みで、シェアの独占化を目論んだ Microsoft は、 IE も Edge もパフォーマンス不足が露呈し、カスタマイズもできずの失望もので、自滅状態です。
Opera も中国資本が買収し Chrome もどき化路線になり、その反発から旧開発陣が独立し Vivaldi をリリースする始末で、右往左往。
にも関わらず、Firefox のシェアは右下がりのジリ貧傾向で、ライバルの Chrome に、加速度的に突き放されています。
素性の良さと高潔なコンセプトの Mozilla(Firefox) が、支持を失っていく事態は、残念でなりません。

ブラウザ戦争で煮え湯を飲まされた Netscape 社は、オープンソースプロジェクトでの Mozilla として再生し、そのユーザー本位の製品によって、ユーザーからの熱い支持を得たはずでした。

この拡張機能 「Classic Theme Restorer」 が、Firefox 52+ を迎えた現在に至っても、いまだに、多くの実利用者を誇り、且つ、絶大な高評価(★5の最高評価ばかり)を受けていることは何を意味するのでしょうか?

Firefox の v29 以降、旧来からのユーザーは、この手の(旧 Firefox の擬似仕様を再現する)拡張機能を実装するか、fork された 「Pale Moon」 に移行するかの潮流が生まれ、いまだに渦巻いています。
新規ユーザーの開拓は、大切です。しかし、既存ユーザーを蔑ろにしては、「底に穴が空いたバケツ」ではないでしょうか。しかも Firefox 57 をもって、システム変更が断行され、拡張機能(Add-on)の多数が互換不能になり、擬似仕様も不可能になる運命です。

Mozilla は、そのユーザーの中核層(パワーユーザーやエキスパートユーザー)を失望させてはいけません。
アドオンバー、タブ機能、ユーザー参画型の Add-ons、などの充実したラインナップは、Mozilla(Firefox)の至宝です。
v57 が、Firefox の終末点になりかねないと危惧します。
