I think that there should be a file to give information / references
on how to get these things back. The NEWS file should be used to give
some information (but it would be nice if information could be given
when the user starts FF29 for the first time). Even if the user isn't
the admin, if he notices some important changes, the NEWS file is the
place one generally looks at in the first place, AFAIK.

I have collected some links:


but I haven't had the time yet to look at them in detail (it seems
that some infomation doesn't correspond to the FF29 behavior, either
because of a bug or because of obsolete information).

It is not obvious to find, in particular because FF29 has a very
specific UI, which doesn't look like the one of other applications.
Hence the need of a page that explains the new UI.
