There were two things which hit me at first with v29.0:

I prefer an arrangement with the address bar at the top (under the menu), a bookmarks toolbar underneath it, and the tabs underneath that, but in v29.0 the tabs moved to the top. Previously it was configurable.

My other must-have is the status bar at the bottom, showing the URL of a link when the mouse is hovered over it. This no longer worked with v29.0.

I've now resolved these issues with the help of the Classic Theme Restorer.

I shall also take a look at the Classic Theme Restorer, for the same reasons as you.

I haven't used ff in about a year, as chrome managed all my addons and bookmarks reasonably better.
Just installed ff and imported everything, websites are loading considerably faster, even though I thought chrome was lightening running off a ssd.

Going to stick with ff for a week or so to see what else has changed.

Thanks for the tip/hint with the classic restorer, I will take a look at that when I get back from a very sunny Marrakech.

Just to say another thanks for the Classic Theme Restorer tip, unfortunately I can't try it at the moment because it's a catch 22 situation of not being able to install the add-on with FF v28.0 which I currently have installed and have to wait until I eventually upgrade FF to at least v29 (Australis).

I say Catch 22 because it seems once FF is upgraded then apparently the Classic Theme Restorer will actually mimic much earlier versions of FF.
