Details

After Australis there are many commands that users lost quick and easy access too (Restore Recently closed tab, Restore previous session, etc.) These options are either buried in the australis menu (Many clicks deep) or are not present at all (About Firefox window). Users can access their classic menus by using the Alt Key, but few users know this trick, and there doesn't seem to be a way to make it permanent. User feedback shows that allowing users to turn the Classic menus on permanently would help ease user pain and make users happier with Australis.

These are now 1 click more than in the classic menu. Hardly a catastrophe.

Huh? Open Menu > Help icon > About Firefox (except on Mac)

Huh? We didn't change in which cases the classic menu is shown on new profiles, except on Linux. Just like before, there's a right click menu on the toolbars, and a view toolbars menu in the 'view' menu. We also added another button with a dropdown menu in customize mode (except on mac) that users can use. There are therefore at least 3 distinct ways to make this permanent.


Per all of the above, I'm marking this WFM.
