But firefox is an application that we all use and it has that difference between linux and windows version
And it is for Mozilla to fix that as indicated to match versions between each OS they can install to; perhaps Mozilla thinks there is some distinction that can be maintained without making it windows and then cloning that interface style to any other OS (Linux or Apple)
Second reason, making it a default with an option to disable is no better than making it not there with an option to install it, but that is not Mint's job, since they like all Linux's use upstream developer solutions and don't try to funnel them through a styling exercise for their particular brand of Linux distribution, except for the usual minor changes to match their desktop themes and so on..
--the fact that they provide a mint themed search bar install, which is removable (if you want), and is there to help Mint defray costs (remember their OS and the oss applications are free to users), does not mean they should be looking everywhere to decide how to accommodate every user idea.
Whenever I have used Firefox i have removed those menu buttons, I don't need 'em, that is what I use a search for, or the book pages
I also don't get the statement about the taskbar (for the OS) being on the bottom, like windows or Apple (OSX - centered panel), is that a failure ??..
--I actually like the taskbar being on the bottom, maybe I have gotten used to it from long windows OS use, and therefor don't need other locations such as the top (aka Ubuntu) or the sides (user options), it can even be automatically hidden, although I just leave it siting there as I don 't need to see the extra 1/4" of screen space
--I do not use status bars for browsers for instance, but that has nothing to do with screen space, only I don't like seeing it on the screen.
