However, Firefox 27.0 is causing issues with some other add-ons (TabMix Plus the main one) and for me that is causing a lot more grief as it is messing with the firefox functionality.

There's the FF ESR version, in case you or anyone else would need it.

[Off Topic]
I tend to leave that alone as there would be no way to test the various add-ons installed.

The Tab Mix Plus version 0.4.1.3 (not official mozilla distribution yet), does resolve the Tab Mix Plus problem.

Same problem here. Can't even enter settings, making it useless if you make a new install because you can't set it to block all the crap.

Not sure what you mean. You (naturally) can also test all your add-ons with FF ESR.

You can't in this very case, were it appears to be that the problem relates to or is effected the latest version of firefox. Being on the ESR build wouldn't exhibit the problems seen with AOS and other add-ons and firefox 27.0.

Ah ok, now I understand what you mean. :)
True, my suggestion was meant as a simple workaround to circumvent problems with new versions of FF.
