To change back to old LJ style...

There should be a little speech bubble with a question mark on the top right of the new profile page. Clicking that gets you the pop-up that allows you to go back to the old style.

Or, if you're me, the speech bubble and questions mark do not show up, but clicking randomly on blank spaces on the top right of the bar at the top of the profile page led the pop-up to pop up, from which I could change back to the old style. (THANK YOU [personal profile] boxofdelights!)

Or on the LJ homepage, there's a blank space between the "post in blog" link at the top right and the envelope icon. (If the envelope icon displays, which it didn't for me.) That blank space also gets you to the dialogue box to change back.

(Seriously, who designed this idiocy?!)

For me, that little speech bubble attempts to open a new bug report screen. No popup.

I think it's because I'm at work, using an oldish Exploder. I'll have to try it at home with FFx and Safari.

Good luck!

Had the same experience of the bubble not showing up in any of my three browsers and had to click around until I found it (just to the right of where it says "post in blog" and to the left of the magnifying-glass search icon). Thanks for passing on the information!

I changed it back to the old interface to see how it would work, now I want to go back to the new one, but haven't yet seen how.

Thank you and thanks to [ profile] boxofdelights for this helpful information.

I note that if, like me, you run with scripts disabled on LJ, you need to enable them long enough to get the @#(*! popup.
