    today my homepage changed to the new google and when searching it looks like classic with crap on the leftside, across the top, and across the bottom

    i use google mobile for a clean homepage and clean search results
    by adding /firefox to the end of my homepage link i got my normal homepage but when i do a search i get the side,top,bottom crap that i don't want
    [my eyesight is not good and all these extra words/links make it too hard to use]

    so my question is how can i get rid of it

    er yes i know and may have to change browsers

    running firefox 15 xp pro

    thanks :D

    I don't think there is any way to get rid of it. Learn working with the new one only.

    Try Element hiding helper for adblock plus.

    There are many userstyles available for Stylish and I use a number of them. Just go over to http://userstyles.org/ and do a search for Google Simple or Google Minimal and you'll find the ones you need.

    I think it would actually be an improvement over what they have now.
