Firefox Campus Edition

CNET Editors' review

It's the favorite freeware Web browser packed with a pair of student-friendly add-ons. By now, Firefox is a prime force in the browser wars. It's easy to install, simple to operate, a snap to upgrade. Firefox features a collection of logical pull-downs, helpful function icons, and and easily-skinned interface. The program's help manual is novice-friendly with extra tips for Internet Explorer users.

So what's special about this Campus Edition? Fun and scholarship with FoxyTunes and Zotero. The former manages your iTunes installation from inside Firefox. FoxyTunes displays the current song, adds controls to pause, skip, and offers links to learn more about the music in your playlists. Zotero is the other side of the coin. The add-on offers dozens of tools to manage research. Bibliographic references, documents, notes, images, and other information is easily linked, stored, and accessed through Zotero. The app includes a very helpful online video tour and extensive program manual.

Sure, it would be easy to install Firefox and simply add these two apps. Firefox Campus Edition saves you a few steps and some search time. This application is for any student who likes to listen to music while doing a little Web research.

    "FireFox Campus...hmmmm"

    August 1, 2009  |   By jackiiee

    Version: Firefox Campus Edition 2.0.0.6

    Pros

    Nice appearance; installs right over the regular version of FireFox.

    Cons

    I found the pages do not load as quickly as the regular FireFox version (their latest version).

    Summary

    It's a bit slower than the updated version of regular FireFox. So I uninstalled the program - now I don't have any FireFox. I'll have to download the regular - latest version of FireFox again.

    "Mozilla Firefox 3.5 SUCKS"

    July 22, 2009  |   By AndieSBC

    Version: Firefox Campus Edition 2.0.0.6

    Pros

    Needed to reconfigure my pc, HOURS and HOURS this edition gives me a couple of addons I don't need, but who cares? Its superior to Opera, Google Chrome and GOD FORBID Intert Explorer windows won't let us install! What Spawn of Satan thought IE8 up?

    Cons

    Add Ons, I don't use yet.

    Summary

    I like the ease the memory of Firefox Mozilla. The ability to work offline unlike in Chrome/Google Opera is okay too, but I just like the warm Orange of Firefox. Two days to back up files and reconfigure pc in order to reinstall Firefox 2.0 Windows Vista and 3.5, Oh H E Double Hockey Sticks NO!

    "Good if you are too busy to install your own add-on!"

    December 20, 2008  |   By SaintlyMic

    Version: Firefox Campus Edition 2.0.0.6

    Pros

    Only good for the fact it is Firefox!

    Cons

    I prefer to search through Firefox's add-on database, and install the add-ons I want.
    This is ok if you are too lazy or too busy to search and install your own add-ons.
    I personally enjoy spending several days searching for Firefox add-ons!

    Summary

    Firefox has a huge database of over 4,000 add-ons! I have searched through them all, and tested many of them. I have found about 30 that all work together seamlessly. I still use Firefox 2.0.0.20 because Firefox 3 does not work with three of the add-ons I use the most.
    If you are interested in a zip file containing the add-ons I have found to work together, please email me, and I will send them to you.
    Or, if you prefer, I can send you an email detailing the name of each add-on I use. Many of the add-ons I use help me with doing a lot of things on the internet.
    Once the three add-ons that are not compatible with Firefox 3 are updated for Firefox 3 I am going to update to Firefox 3!
    I have tried Firefox 3, but I use the Firefox version that works with the U3 technology for thumb drives. The U3 Firefox version is only version 2.0.0.20. I tried to update to version 3 but version 3 makes Firefox on U3 act up terribly! So, I'm sticking with version 2 until U3 updates their version of Firefox.
    Please believe me when I say Firefox 2 is the best browser out there, so far as I can tell. And, I love trying out free software!
    Oh, one last thing ... The reason I use the U3 Firefox version is because I can take my browser with me everywhere! I have set up Firefox 2 with all the add-ons I have on my U3 thumb drive on my pc as well, and I'm able to update everything I do between my pc and my U3 thumb drive.
    I personally believe that the U3 type of technology will replace many things we use using our pcs. It's like having a smart chip in your pocket that has everything you need to use for doing what you need to do! I LOVE U3!!!

    "Downloading this risks damaging your existing Firefox."

    December 9, 2008  |   By rmchavin

    Version: Firefox Campus Edition 2.0.0.6

    Pros

    It's possible that some people may find this slightly more useful than the most recent version of Mozilla Firefox.

    Cons

    It's unlikely that you will find the Campus Edition more useful than the most recent version of Mozilla Firefox. Furthermore, you risk damaging your existing Mozilla Firefox program when you download the Firefox Campus Edition.

    Summary

    You are not downloading another separate browser when you download the Campus Edition of Mozilla Firefox. What you are doing, whether you know it or not, is modifying (ie. potentially damaging) your existing Mozilla Firefox program.

    "Useful, but, I have some problems."

    September 13, 2008  |   By Sas_Neuro

    Version: Firefox Campus Edition 2.0.0.6

    Pros

    It is a great product, I am an eight grader. Although this was meant for college, it is great for any student who needs online research.

    Cons

    This is Firefox 2, not 3. I suggest getting Firefox 3, then getting the necessary add-ons for campus usage.

    Summary

    Very useful. Not Firefox 3, but, I still like it.

    "The built-in Zotero and Foxytunes makes this version of firefox perfect."

    September 3, 2007  |   By mr.correct

    Version: Firefox Campus Edition 2.0.0.6

    Pros

    It had Stumble, Zotero and Foxytunes, which i need it almost everyday,

    Whats good about this is that there is a built-in dictionary. I am actually a first timer using Firefox. I must apologize for that. And I'm now stucked in using this. Good recommendation. Rated 4.5 but too bad no such numerical in the rating box.

    Cons

    Too perfect to say anything bad about this.

    "Finally, a usefull browser for pupils like me"

    August 29, 2007  |   By CrazyPigeon

    Version: Firefox Campus Edition 2.0.0.6

    Pros

    I didn't really searched for browser editions like these. But i downloaded instead of my standard Firefox. It had powerfull add-ons, i can control my music, it's getting boring after a while searching (really, i know everything about it)

    Saving webpages, with just a click, and view them later, and use the results in my projects. StumbleUpon is not really a neccesary tool.

    Cons

    It's firefox, with addons, so i dont see anything wrong about this software.

    It's just Firefox, with add-ons selected by FireFox just for Students, and pupils.
