Firefox 38.0.1 tools tabs now on side of window and after i did my upgrade, i was like “It’s about time”. Firefox’s Preferences, until now, have required navigation through a cumbersome floating window but now its a blended web fit into the browser design. I must say pretty surprise and yeps, damn nice..Ive always been a Firefox fan!

But hey for those who don’t really like fast change, here is a way to roll back. You can toggle browser.preferences.inContent to false on the about:config page to restore the standalone Options/Preferences window that you had in previous Firefox versions.

You can open the about:config page via the location/address bar. You can accept the warning and click “I’ll be careful” to continue.

Funny though, From reviews, some people think its not a good idea, Like its a plan for “One design for all devices” approach by Firefox and maybe Preference will be removed eventually or stripped down.

This is a long awaited design as its been announced way earlier, and the way i see it. The introduction of the Customizer, and the increased UI/UX just helps put Firefox out there for techy and non-tech users.

Whats your take?
