"SLOW & CRASHING!"

September 23, 2015  |  By XmarksCRAP

2015-09-23 14:07:28  |  By XmarksCRAP

 |  Version: Mozilla Firefox beta 41.0 b9

Pros

None whatsoever

Cons

Mozilla continuous to stick our computers with their exuberant display of uselessness. Every new version is SLOWER than the previous one and CRASHES MORE and more often. This is pretty close to RAPE, and if we don't take it, they don't support it. One day, after a multi million dollar lawsuit that puts one of these retarded software companies out of business, it will be ILLEGAL to force user to upload the latest updates.

Summary

SLOW AND CRASHY!!!

"My advice: Don't download this version"

November 06, 2014  |  By rduffey2

2014-11-06 15:28:56  |  By rduffey2

 |  Version: Mozilla Firefox beta 34.0b6

Pros

None that I can think of!

Cons

I loved the original version of firefox, but this new version is nothing but a pain! Most of the time I can't access the internet and get the message that the proxy server is not connected; I've never used a proxy server before, and comcast my internet provider tried to help me reset the settings so the proxy is disabled, every time we did it would revert back to the proxy server. I'm sorry I ever used fire fox now!

Summary

If you want your computer to go "CRAZY" download this version of fire fox....This really sucks!

"Bing Bong! Microsoft calling!"

September 15, 2014  |  By seankilkenny

2014-09-15 05:27:50  |  By seankilkenny

 |  Version: Mozilla Firefox beta 33.0b3

Pros

Quick and comfortable to use. Still pretty secure, despite getting a larger share of browser market.

Cons

Time was, you could customise and configure Firefox to our heart's content. These days, Mozilla have unilaterally decided to install Bing as the 'Default' search engine - with no means to amend, adjust or replace it.

Summary

Might still be good, but taking the choice from the user will never win you votes.
