    "Fault claim not PPC installable"

    September 8, 2011  |   By emiliopal

    Version: Mozilla Firefox beta 7.0b4

    Pros

    Sorry none, I am also one of those who still use an excellent Mac OS X 10.5 PPC

    Cons

    Can not install Mozilla Firefox beta 7.0b4 on Mac PPC.

    Summary

    Either correct the spec for Mozilla Firefox beta 7.0b4 or hopefully in the future Mozilla can develop an universal Firefox for both PPC and Intel architecture.

    "Pathetically slow download"

    March 11, 2011  |   By Girtuoklis

    Version: Mozilla Firefox beta 7.0b4

    Pros

    I've yet to see any.

    Cons

    Another resource hog, just like previous versions.
    Needs add-ons and plug-ins to provide true usability.
    Download is throttled, never got over 50Kbps, averaged at only 30Kbps.

    Summary

    Makes me wonder if FF is now under MS control. Seems to be full of bugs just like before, crashes when used with some video players, still has horrible Java issues.

    "cnet get your house in order . . . Mozilla won't"

    February 26, 2011  |   By SandFarmer

    Version: Mozilla Firefox beta 4 beta 12

    Pros

    None. Since Firefox not longer supports PPC, contrary to what cnet has listed int eh specs.

    Cons

    No more PPC support for the millions that still have PPC Machines.

    Summary

    Mozilla the Open Source every bodies software group, now, is not. cnet is still posting inaccurate info on FF b versions. It amazes me that organizations can be so brain dead.

    "Long since abandoned the PPC platform . . ."

    February 10, 2011  |   By SandFarmer

    Version: Mozilla Firefox beta 4 beta 11

    Pros

    None for the millions that still have a PPC.

    Cons

    No longer supporting PPC.

    Summary

    cnet, when are you going to get the specs correctly listed on your site? It's not all that hard. Or are you just that "unknowing"? This takes cnet.com's credibility to another height. Sorry, low. Consistent erroneous product information . . .

    "No longer supporting PPC, cnet update your specs?"

    January 27, 2011  |   By SandFarmer

    Version: Mozilla Firefox beta 4 beta 10

    Pros

    Completely None.

    Cons

    No PPC Support. Have gone back to Safari.

    Summary

    cnet needs to update the "Quick Specs". These newer versions will not run on the PPC platform. Which is too bad. Firefox was just getting good. Obviously they don't or won't miss my donations.

    "cnet update your Quick Specs, PPC no longer supported"

    January 15, 2011  |   By SandFarmer

    Version: Mozilla Firefox beta 4 beta 9

    Pros

    Since abandoning PPC - NOTHING.

    Cons

    No longer supporting PowerPC.

    Summary

    In mid-course Mozilla saw fit to abandon the millions of PPC's that are still up and running and will be for years to come. I personally have banned all use of Firefox and Thunderbird in all the companies I run and support, and have stopped all donations. It was a stupid move on their part to abandon a large sector of users that helped put them on the map. This is what I get for supporting an "open source" endeavor. No more. If I could I'd ask for my money back.

    "it is great for movies and other stuff plus warcraft"

    December 25, 2010  |   By purplemaizenjm

    Version: Mozilla Firefox beta 4 beta 8

    Pros

    folders, warcraft, files, movies, anything you like it is there it is a great browser but, it has its faults.

    Cons

    it can't play flash games it does not have a loading bar on the bottom of the page, It is trying to act like Safari. every time I go to pogo to try to play a game I get a freeze frame. I am told there is No Java in Browser from Pogo.

    Summary

    If I can't play a game from pogo or any other game area even where I test at different sites. why bother change my browser to the beta 4. if they can't fix it. I need the the loading bar on the bottom of the page. I have mention this to them time and time again and they have not done it. They don't care about Macs
