    Mozilla has released Version 29.0 of the Firefox browser. The most significant change is a redesigned user interface, with more prominent customization features, and the ability to create a Firefox Account to use for Firefox Sync.

    Updated some days ago, interface & new features ok, but getting lots of 'already running'. So, am hoping to see 29.1 asap...

    Not a bad update, a little Chrome'ish but that's okay with me. Enjoying the change and things seem smooth and fast...for now.

    About 'already running' (mentionned in post above) when launching FF29, googled it for solutions and found one recommendation which worked here: am using 'Clear history' when exiting, unticked 'Browsing and Download history', no problems since (and am anyway using ccleaner to clear the cache, so no loss). Hoping it'll help someone.

    I find 29 to be running a lot better than any previous version.

    I had to reinstall whole OS couple of days ago, downloaded and installed brand new FF and since than it doesn't want to remeber History and there's no entries under "Recently Closed Tabs" and "Recently Closed windows". It is set to remember history but it doesn't. Only shows last 10 opened Tabs under that.
