    "Better, but still some problems"

    July 4, 2012  |   By jaylobby

    Version: Mozilla Firefox beta 14.0b8

    Pros

    This version makes connections faster than its predecessors & doesn't hang up my computer as often.

    Cons

    However, it still takes more time to link with other websites than Chrome or Opera, & it still occasionally hangs up my PC so I have to do the "Ctrl-Alt-Delete" boogie.

    Summary

    I used to love Firefox, but now I just like it quite a bit. On the other hand, if there's a perfect browser, I have yet to find it.

    "Somethings are Broke in firefox 13"

    June 7, 2012  |   By Crazyglues

    Version: Mozilla Firefox beta 13.0b4

    Pros

    It's fast...

    Cons

    Not as Fast as Chrome...

    Something is wrong with scrolling, I'm on an LCD but when I scroll text looks more blurry then before, it's not blurry at all in chrome I can scroll up and down full speed and no problem, what happened in this update..???

    Also Save Image As seems to be broke, What happened???

    There's problably much more broke, I don't know how this got out of beta testing..

    Summary

    In summary, I've used Firefox all my life but this is actually the first time they made me start using chrome, this thing is FAIL...

    Oh and I'm not on the BETA I'm on the final 13.0 that just came out.

    "Solid, stable, fast and efficient."

    June 5, 2012  |   By panessa79

    Version: Mozilla Firefox beta 13.0b4

    Pros

    Everything about it

    Cons

    Personally have not found any, tho I would like to play with the new tab layout I keep hearing of, with the "icons" for common and favorite web pages on it.

    Summary

    I've had to laugh reading some of the reviews claiming its a resource hog, that it doesn't log into FB, and the like. I've been using Firefox for close to a decade now, and I've never had those problems. And despite being a techie of sorts, I don't have some all powerful Core I7 system. I'm running an Athlon II X2 250 Regor 3.0Ghz with 4gb G-Skill RAM and onboard Radeon 4250HD video. On Win XP PRO SP3. It cost me $400 to build my system with a 22" LED back-light monitor. It's reasonably fast but not a superstar. And let me say it again, Athlon II X2 3.0 with onboard video. I have never seen it do anything resembling a resource hog. Like Internet Exploder always turns out to be. Firefox requires half the system resources of IE regardless of what I'm doing

    "Had Firefox on my PC since it first came out."

    April 18, 2012  |   By desertdan1

    Version: Mozilla Firefox beta 12.0b5

    Pros

    It makes a great default browser.

    Cons

    Biggest issue they have never dealt with is signing on to Facebook, it won't display email & password, browser has to be restarted and it will usually work for a while? After researching this issue it goes back to 2009 maybe further! There hundreds of references to this issue. My conclusion is geeks although smart don't have the common sense to listen to their pee-on users hence the lapse of a useable browser between version 3.6 and 10.0 and a huge loss of users over those years.

    Summary

    Firefox is still my default browser, yes I still cuss it every-time it won't sign into facebook? It otherwise works very-well, speed is good and I even have a few add-on's they some day may get my 5th star but not yet.......

    Updated on Apr 18, 2012

    Oh yea! Chrome browsers always sign in with no issue's !

    "Connections still too slow"

    March 24, 2012  |   By jaylobby

    Version: Mozilla Firefox beta 12.0b1

    Pros

    I've been a big fan of Firefox & used it as my default browser for many years. Some of the reasons are still around in recent iterations.

    Cons

    That said, the new versions during the last 6 months have slowed down my ability to make connections so much that I no longer use it as my default browser. Chrome & Opera are much faster.

    Summary

    If the problem with slow connections can be cleared up, I'll go back to Firefox.

    "firefox is getting slower"

    March 23, 2012  |   By peterev12

    Version: Mozilla Firefox beta 12.0b1

    Pros

    its easy to use and uncomplicated which definately cant be saiod for ie9

    Cons

    it was fast at first but after two days started having problems with it connecting after that i reverted back to firefox 11 full version firefox needs to concentrate on how they can speed their browsers up chrome is much better ive got chrome revert between the two but chrome always get 2mb faster download speeds than fire fox

    Summary

    firefox needs to include certain items like java and flash in their browsers without having to add plugins and needs to update them more frequently without.its so annoying that you have to keep checking the plugins to see if they need updating .this should be done automatically

    "STOP THROWING MY CURSOR IN THE ADDRESS BAR!"

    February 22, 2012  |   By dylaughin

    Version: Mozilla Firefox beta 10.0b6

    Pros

    Its as good as the previous versions.

    Cons

    Everytime I open a new tab, it goes to my home page, which is good... however my home page is google search and instead of the cursor defaulting to the text entry field, it defaults to the address bar and I start typing there expecting it to be in the text entry field. I hate this!

    I reverted to FF v 9 and at some point it FORCED me to upgrade to 10 and before I knew it I had a new version.

    Summary

    I hate that it defaults the cursor to the address bar.

    "Always crashes"

    February 7, 2012  |   By Fletch2015

    Version: Mozilla Firefox beta 11

    Pros

    None that I can see over previous versions.

    Cons

    Crashes every 1 to 3 days. Especially if a number of tabs are left open overnight.

    Hogs the processor & slows the entire machine.

    Summary

    Need to work out the bugs.
