Just customize!




Adding support for customisation has a cost - more code, more things to test. If people just used defaults we could have simpler code, shipped more quickly, with fewer bugs.


So?

Not supporting images or JavaScript would simplify things as well...


So supporting configurable options takes resources away from implementing useful features. I'd rather we had more useful features, and more bugs fixed, than silly options for fussy people to rearrange where their tabs are in their browser.


> silly options for fussy people

That's just your opinion—which I guess the Firefox devs and most users don't share.

Customizability is a very useful feature for many people.
