    "WORST Firefox version yet... Full of bugs, always hangs"

    February 24, 2010  |   By flanjerka

    Pros

    Tabbed browsing, great add-ons.

    Cons

    Chock FULL of bugs! Firefox 3.6 hangs and stops responding at least ONCE A DAY, while 3.58 had NO problems. I guess Mozilla has given up on regression testing...

    Summary

    Firefox 3.6 hangs when pdf files are opened, when certain flash or javascript content is viewed, and basically on ANY webpage with multimedia content. Version 3.6 hangs once or twice a day now - just terrible. I've used Firefox (over IE) for MANY years now, but I will now be moving to Chrome. This version is the WORST version of Firefox EVER - don't upgrade your 3.5 installation until 3.6 is fixed. As of Feb 2010, it is NOT fixed and is barely usable. I can't believe Mozilla released 3.6 when it had THIS many problems! I did NOT expect this from FF...

    PLUS, there's a rumored zero-day exploit already out for 3.6 which Mozilla is denying the existence of... not very reassuring - to have a company put its head in the sand in the face of serious problems.

    Firefox 3.6... the death knell for Mozilla? The birth of Chrome? I think so.
