Move it

I don't want to deal with the security messages later on down the road.

Besides, its not like they are going to reverse the changes.

Moving it to main is not a decision to have it default for MX yet, It will just be in the repos. And even if we decide to make it the default the esr version will always be available.

I changed my extension/add on (whatever it is called, I only have one in firefox) around to a supported version before upgrading. Seems to work fine. But boy I find it ugly on the address bar dept. now :laugh:

Its all a bit different but Colorful Tabs, which was recently unavailable on previous versions, is back. Worth a test if you like [Au]colour[/Au]; coded tabs, although the rounded style was better than this new squared style.

I think each major browser style revision causes some adjustment and conversation until things smooth out a bit and other habits adopted with ongoing use and tweaking. ....I hope )

*Oh yeah there's a small bug for now:
Currently only colors the selected tab due to https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1320585
...which presently ruins the pleasant spectrum of tab shading traditionally seen with Colorful Tabs.

**Important note: Reviewing Preferences settings is highly advisable as they appear to be reset for items like search engine, data collection etc.

It looks pretty good on Windows 10, which of course would have been the developers' prime goal.

I believe someone will create an extension to have rounded tabs fairly soon.
