back to article Firefox reveals new look: rounded rectangles

The Mozilla foundation has released 'Australis', the new design for its flagship Firefox browser. Australis is only visible in Firefox nightlies for now and Mozilla isn't saying which release of the browser it will land in. It is, however, destined to become the design standard for all versions of Firefox on all platforms. …

        Is one addon I can not do without.

        So much nicer having that left hand tab stack to pick out which "page" I want to see., also, a few other tricks minimizes the vertical height of the header, also giving you more room for the page.

          instead of useless eye candy they should focus on making it less of a bloatware/memory hog. with the release of every new version they scream about improved memory management, and yet its getting progressively worse with each subsequent version.

          v 3.6: 40 tabs (40 active loaded on start) > 350 mb ram (1 hour) > 700 mb ram (1day - 1 week)

          v 25: 40 tabs (1 active, rest loads only after selecting each tabs, highly annoying, couldnt be bothered to find the setting to turn this off) > uses 500mb ram (1 hour) > 1000mb ram (1day) > 3000+mb (2days), had to kill it, just way too pathetic.

      That's one of the first things I get rid of. Why have two boxes when you can do it in one?

      1. Jim Willsher

        Because it's easier to *refine* your search if it's not overwritten by the web page you visit.

        If you type XYZ 123 into the adress bar, the browser will happily submit that to google for you. So you choose a link and then realise you'd have been better putting XYZ 124. With a separate search box you can edit and resubmit; with a combined box you either have to retype or you have to hit countless iterations of the back button.

    Oh brother

    Can't wait for the inevitable "Apple sues" jokes...

    I don't see why they should mess with the UI, unless it helps usability. I think every time a new person is in charge of a UI they feel they need to put their 'stamp' on it and change things around for no particular reason. c.f. iOS 7. I don't mind the changes, but I didn't mind how it looked before. The changes that were done had no benefit on the usability of iOS, so it was basically a lot of wasted effort.

    Apple, at least, has the resources to waste effort. Mozilla does not, because there are many more pressing concerns with Firefox than the UI. Such as the fact that a decade later I still need to restart it every couple weeks when its memory usage creeps up to 3GB and it starts getting a little sluggish.

        Nope, I've seen over 3GB too, quite frequently, and it isn't add-ons (confirmed by exploring the about:memory report). It's really pretty grim, and it gently ramps up. Mine is currently sitting at 1.6GB.

        100MB taken up displaying a single PDF. 150MB for a webmail page. One of the real killers though is little buttons for sharing. For example, a freshly opened news story page on this very site consumes 43MB. Only 10MB of that is ascribed to the site itself. 5MB is js-zone (whatever that is … I guess general storage used by the JavaScript engine not for any particular page element … ?). The rest is attributed variously to Google, Facebook, Twitter and Stumbleupon. I plan to get round to preventing these things from loading. That should make a very big difference.

      Re: Blimey, it's Chrome

      The new UI bloke has got rid of the status bar, most of the options on the content tab, and CRL management, and is just about to break a load of extensions by dumbing down the UI. His answer to any perceived problem is either 'get rid of it' or 'make it look more like Chrome' (or both, which is often the case).

      I've got five extensions now which are only there to bring back stuff that's been disappeared, but I imagine that eventually the authors of those extensions might get bored of having to maintain them either for personal reasons or because they're tired of constantly chasing moving goalposts.

      There's no particular reason why my desktop browser has to look like my mobile browser. When I'm using my mobile I might want simple but that doesn't mean that I want a desktop browser that's been dumbed down to useless. In short, is there nobody better? Can't the old timers at Mozilla put this idiot back in his box? I take it they understand their userbase better than someone who spends their day snorting latte and pretending they work at Apple.

          Re: Blimey, it's Chrome

          This isn't going to save pixels, it's going to waste them as the rounded corners stop text from being displayed so the amount of text for each tab will be less.

          I'm in favour of saving pixels as I use a netbook and pixels are in short supply in my little 10 inch window to the world. If you want things bigger, which is understandable with a large display, then increase text scaling in your OS and (hopefully) your browser will follow.

          Agree that Firefox is becoming more and more like the intolerable Google Chrome. Mozilla need to start to improve things that actually matter like performance and resource usage.

    I use IE for work apps as I can keep cookies etc kept open. I use firefox for general browsing. Just wish they'd stop mucking around and do some proper 'innovation'. Rounded boxes don't count.

    Google gives me the creeps, so no Chrome. I found Iron to be unstable. Didn't like Opera, so that leaves me with IE and Firefox.

    Come on - fix the plugin mess - what were they thinking when they disabled Flash without a popup to tell you what was going on? Slight change to the web address far too subtle and not visible in full screen mode.

    Just wish the end result of open source software wasn't a messy UI and a massive settings/options dialogue box. Nobody wants to work on the boring stuff - rounded boxes are much more interesting!

      "so that leaves me with IE and Firefox"

      I used to think the same, then I discovered SeaMonkey. Its sort of a continuance of a Netscape and Mozilla like environment but backed up with the Firefox engine (uses the Mozilla source code which (quote:) "powers such successful siblings as Firefox, Thunderbird, Camino, Sunbird and Miro.").

      Best part is that most Firefox plugins also work easily on SeaMonkey. And unlike Firefox it doesn't get an update every month or so, and even more importantly: when it does get an update the interface doesn't change on a whim.

      I've been using it for at least two years now (probably a lot longer) with the default interface and so far haven't had any change to it.

      1. Irony Deficient

        SeaMonkey updates

        ShelLuser, SeaMonkey does receive frequent updates; it’s just that its version numbering is not as “inflated” as that of Firefox. (SeaMonkey has been on “version 2” since 2010 or so. Its current version at this writing is 2.22.1; 2.21 was released in mid-September, 2.20 in early August, &c.)

        +1 for Seamonkey. It's effectively Firefox + Thunderbird + a whole load of other useful stuff, with a sensible, usable GUI & none of this translucent-menu-on-a-dark-background nonsense that Firefox goes in for. I've been using it for donkeys' years now, and I highly recommend it.

    Reduce or increase

    " The browser does its best to get out of the way with a few enhancements that reduce the amount of screen space occupied by its interface."

    Yet they switch to rounded rectangles which are less space efficient than the existing ones. I am all for change for improvements sake but I do think this improvement will actually be more of a hindrance due to the fact I often have massive amounts of tabs open.

    1. Anonymous Coward
      Anonymous Coward

      Re: Reduce or increase

      These changes seem to be driven by the relentless switch to mobile interfaces for all devices, but as you point out the more rounded the corners are, the more space they take up versus rectangular ones. On my phone I use Firefox simply because it has the Adblock Plus extension. It's interesting to note that the rounding on the interface is far less pronounced in the stock Android Chrome browser though ...

    Something to remember

    Firefox usage share has dropped whilst Chrome's has grown.

    As with any product, be it free or not, this isn't a good thing. So, they need to improve it to compete properly. Things that most users notice are:




    Things like plugin support now exist in pretty much all browsers in one form or another, so Firefox no longer has that as a USP.

    As Firefox and Chrome are near identical when it comes to speed and compatibility, it really only has the UI to work with to gain more share.

    Unless it can come up with a proper new USP of course.

      Does Chrome's growth in share have anything to do with their UI?

      1. localzuk Silver badge

        Re: Something to remember

        No idea. I did switch to it because of the UI and speed originally. The UI was significantly smaller than its competitors - less junk in the way of showing pages.

        So, potentially, yes, some of the growth could well be down to the UI.

      2. Grogan Silver badge

        Re: Something to remember

        Yes, it is often distributed like foistware (I do not approve of that tactic, for any software, good or bad), but a lot of people like it. Under the hood, it's very good software. Fast, reliable and relatively self contained.

        It's not only foisted on people through bundling, but every time people go to Google they see "Browse the Internet with a faster browser - Google Chrome" (or something to that effect) and they download it and are not sorry.

        (I also don't approve of every stinking browser pushing people to make it their default. Many people don't understand the implications of that... that it's the one that's going to come up automatically when web content is launched)

        I get people who ask for Google Chrome when I'm setting up their software on a new PC or new Windows installation. I'm only too happy to comply because they'll live happily ever after.

        But no, it's not so much because of the user interface. I think most people would agree that it's lame but it also does what most people really need it to do.

        I use Chromium myself (Linux)

    2. Old Handle

      Re: Something to remember

      So what you're saying is, Chrome is almost identical to Firefox, and Mozilla thinks they can compete by being even more the same? I can't see how that will help.

      I strongly suspect the only reason Chrome has a high market share is because Google pushes it in your face all the time. People who don't know a browser from an OS see Google telling them to upgrade and figure Google's smart so lets just go with the one the recommend.

      Mozilla can't do anything about that. What they can do (if they want to) is be the browser of choice for people who actually bother to make a conscious choice. That's what originally earned FF the market share it's now losing.

    I checked the latest ie11 on Windows 7 the other day and was pleasantly surprised by the snappiness compared to Firefox. It was noticable, which means Mozilla are slacking.

    Lets face it, the interface of a browser was `finished` a long time ago and now it's just mostly eye-candy and implementing the design vogue of the week.

    1. Anonymous Coward
      Anonymous Coward

      IE11 on my Win 8.1 laptop now defaults to 125% zoom by itself. Apparently this is some new 'feature' to ensure our screen space is utilized (I am on a 1600 x 900 ultrabook). Other users on different screen sizes get defaulted to different zoom levels. And there is no override, other than to manually zoom out/in each time it happens.

      Opera has gone from being highly customizable to being a Chrome clone, Firefox is heading that way. Chrome is already the bench mark for basic uncustomizable interfaces, and IE has introduced a stupid auto-zoom feature. What are all these guys on? Have they really run out of new features to the point where they have to spend their time removing or screwing up existing ones?

      1. El Andy

        IE's autozoom is based on your display's DPI setting. So you can make it default to 100% by setting your DPI accordingly.

        1. Anonymous Coward
          Anonymous Coward

          My machine is set to 100% sizing, default settings - other browsers and everything else works fine. IE worked fine in Windows 8. In Windows 8.1 it defaults me every time to 125%.

          I am not the only one:

          The default should be 100%. If they're going to set me at 125% all the time, they should give me a way to override it, so I can view things at 100% and not have to change this on every damn page.

      2. This will stop the Tabs from opening, but you'll still have a single "Tab" taking up space in your main Thunderbird window. To turn this off go to Edit -> Preferences -> Advanced -> General.

      Click "Config Editor..." button

      You will get a warning, click the corresponding agreement button.

      A large dialog box will come up titled "about:config"

      At the top of this is a "Filter:" box. Type "autohide" in the box and press the Enter key.

      A single search result will be returned below that called "mail.tabs.autoHide"

      Double-click the result "mail.tabs.autoHide". It will become bold, indicating it's been edited from the default, and the "value" column will change to "true".

      Close the "about:config" dialog box.

    "Tabs are also higher up the page, saving a few pixels for showing web pages."

    On my current version (25.0.1, no idea if it's the latest), tabs are jammed squarely against the top of the page. On the picture in the article, there's a huge chunk of wasted space above the tabs. Far from moving them higher to save pixels, it appears they've done the exact opposite.

      There is a combined search/URL bar, although I'm not sure if it's disabled by default. But I've been searching in the location bar in Firefox for years (as well as using it for history). My only complaint is that if you put 1 word in, Firefox seems to do a DNS lookup for about a second before doing a search. If you put more than one word this doesn't happen. On the other hand, Firefox works well if you are developing using custom domains in your hosts file, whereas Chrome assumes it's a search if it doesn't end in a real TLD, which can get annoying.

    Extensions - if only

    The most recent update seems to fight all the extensions - Firefox is now so slow as to be unusable unless I switch them all off. I can't believe that a separate search box, Lastpass enabled and the ability to block adverts is an unreachable nirvana in just shy of 2014.

    Am I...

    ...the only one who doesn't care what shape the tabs are as long as I can tell the one I'm using from the ones I'm not.

    Oh and PaleMoon is determined to avoid all this nonsense like the plague...

    Mozilla is winning

    Winning on each version until total defeat.

    I'm afraid that one of these days they will succeed, and will broke so much of the old functionality as to losing most of their users.

    Just like Gnome did with Gnome Shell.

    Stop, I want to get off!

    "post Gingerbread, and pre Kit-Kat"

    What was wrong with good old numbers? You may not have remembered exactly what was in release 4.1 but you knew it came after 4.0 and before 4.1.1. Jelly bean? Ice Cream Sandwich? Give me strength...

    Rounded corners?

    Apple won't like that.

    It's about time someone took a large mallet and started hitting the Firefox developers around the head with it until they get the message to "STOP FUCKING UP OUR BROWSER!"

    However, good news, there's an add-on called Classic Theme Restorer which can restore various "deleted" options including the add-on bar and "Tabs not on top" amongst others.

    And, yes, it works fine on Australis!

    Braced for downvotes

    Been using it all day and I like it.

    Apart from the blue icon stolen from the Linux version of Firefox from 2003.

      I think that's a "pinned tab"... presumably for a bakery.

    Way too fugly....

    Poor folks at Mozilla co have clearly lost their way. So long as it remains completely customizable, it'll be ok. Otherwise, they're in big trouble. Maybe they should take a lesson from microsoft and their tifkam disaster....

      This is precisely why I use FF. The rounded corners will interfere with my bad habit of many tabs open. I too have customized FF to cram what I want into the toolbars and minimize the space they use. Leave those parts alone and fix the memory leaks again. The extensions and control (Tab Mix Plus) are essential to this FF user.

    The innovation in

    some parts of the industry is truly astounding, beyond belief. This is the biggest thing since the microchip i tell ya!! Bow to the geniuses at Mozilla, truly a behemoth of innovation and skill!!
