CHANGES:
- Changing of themes is forbidden.

Can you please explain if this is a temporary measure and why this drastic choice was made?

The installer is still resetting the Automatic Updater service in Windows to 'Automatic'
Can this behavior be changed? I have set up Dragon to NOT automatically update dragon AND set the Windows service to 'Manual'.
Things that don't need to eat my systems CPU and memory should stay manual also after an 'upgrade' of the Dragon browser.
Can this change be made in the installer?

For the rest kick-ass browser  :-TU

Sadly I cat be updating my favorite browser right moew.

I would like a lighter-looking theme rather than the default dark theme. For the time being I would keep using the old version for a short time. If this issue is not fixed soon and the developers decide to go against the will of many users, I would switch to another browser... :'(

Its unfortunate that they are doing this for brand awareness,
Theme changing was removed in order to ensure brand awareness.
so i don't think i will be updating at the moment, and probably give palemoon a chance if the don't revert it in the next few revisions.

I have heard good things about Maxthon, which is also based on Chromium project.

Right, those that use a theme use Dragon for a reason, those that don't know Dragon will still not use it because they can's change a theme of a browser the don't have installed...

If you dont allow installation of third-party themes, at least you should have a set of pre-installed themes that can be switched, just like CIS. That would be better than none at all.

Looks like we have problems here - an "Avira" reported "TR/Crypt.XPACK.Gen" trojan into installation distributive in process to install new version (C:\Windows\Temp\Dra4638.tmp). How about that feces ? Anyway - I don't need a "Most secure browser" in conjunctions with the trojans. How about to re-pack distributive (an "DragonSetup.exe" file) without such "horses"  ? I'm not Priam - and not need them.

Please report this false positive to Avira and please moderate your tone because you just showed up on the mods radar. Comodo has no intention to spread malware.

I would think it is not the biggest of crowds that modify the UI of their browsers, I am surely not one of them, and that the people changing the UI are already more aware of what browser they are using.

I don't see brand awareness and themes as mutually exclusive. The more aware users may also be more inclined to tell other people about Comodo Dragon.
Can you please explain if this is a temporary measure and why this drastic choice was made?

My thoughts exactly.

I would like to add to let  the installer to follow the existing DNS settings of the previous version of Dragon.
