Firefox 109 annoying "feature"

Last edited: 28th January 2023

So Firefox version 109 came out on the 17th January 2023, and it looks like another release. I thought nothing about it until I upgraded Librewolf to version 109 where I noticed a really annoying "feature" that is now turned on by default called "Unified Extensions", which adds a button to your toolbar where all of your extensions will show up once clicked on. This is a terrible design choice. Why add another "unified" button that crammes everything into a separate menu when nobody needs that. In Chromium-based web browsers, you can at least pin the extensions to the toolbar to see them directly, which allows you to display the extensions you want to display on the toolbar. On Firefox, you now have to go about:config, search for extensions.unifiedExtensions.enabled, and change it to false (like it should be by default). This is just preposterous, and an insult to me, especially because Firefox brags about being "customisable":

Make Firefox your own


Tweak your settings

There’s no need to settle. Change up the new tab page, search bar, bookmarks and more to explore the internet the way you want.

Yes, I am looking forward to see the reload button to be gone!
