What is OldLander For Old Reddit?
OldLander For Old Reddit is a Firefox add-on designed to improve the mobile browsing experience on the nostalgic old.reddit.com interface. It customizes the viewport for better viewing, transforms the sidebar into a retractable feature, turns clunky text into neat icons, revamps the tabs dropdown for easier navigation, disables subreddit-specific CSS for uniformity, and optimizes subreddit icons for mobile screens. With these enhancements, mobile users can enjoy the classic Reddit feel without the usual formatting frustrations.

I've been trying to live the app free life and this add-on makes using Reddit on your phone just that much more enjoyable. They are also actively updating and making changes to this add-on and it's amazing to see. I had an issue with the Dyslexia Mobile and they patched it up with no fuss and had an update out the next day. I registered an account here just to make sure that there was one more five star review! Features are also awesome! It makes me actually enjoy using Reddit again after they destroyed all the third party apps. Thanks guys for being awesome!!

Missing subs in the side bar and feed. Subs I subscribe to simply don't show up when using Oldlander, such as r/Customkeyboards. Not much use if the plugin hides subs from me.

The extension makes the upvote/comment/save etc. icons disproportionately big on my device, and there's a noticeable increase in load speed. But it's still better than the default mobile experience (and let's not mention the app), so I'll happily take it.
