"Every upgrade gets worse"

December 10, 2014

 |  Version: Mozilla Firefox 34.0.5

Pros

I liked the ability to configure it.

Cons

1. The search box on the upper right, why did they change it's functionality? It was easy to use, simple and quick. Once you could put the cursor on the search box and then a list of pages would come down and you could easily switch to one or the other. That simple efficiency wasn't good enough for someone at Mozilla so they decided to make it more complicated and added a step.

2. Flash sites. Why is Firefox such a pain in the rear over this? I use Chrome for those sites because FF is often nearly useless. This has been going on for months if not years and nothing is done.

Summary

I'm down with change, I'm not down with useless changes or ones that add a step or two.

"With Almost Every Upgrade FireFox (v34) Gets Worse"

December 09, 2014  |  By Cypherdude

 |  Version: Mozilla Firefox 34.0.5

Pros

Still customizable, although less than previous versions.
Toolbar Bookmarks don't need any text, to conserve space. You can recognize just the icons.
Can quickly backup all bookmarks and load on a different PC, definitely a plus.
Spell check feature.
Can enlarge most text boxes where you write inside, such the ones I am writing this review.
Can pick and choose different search engines, although some no longer work.
Can add buttons right next to main menu to conserve space, but Mozilla needs to add more buttons.

Cons

Can no longer completely customize buttons. Where are the bars to separate the buttons? Mozilla also needs to add more buttons.
No longer allows you to sort your search engines.
Double clicking on Tabs Toolbar no longer opens new tab.
FireFox no longer works with Adobe Acrobat 10 PDF Printer Driver, Appcrashes.

Summary

With almost every upgrade, Mozilla makes FF worse.

V21: FF stops working w/Acrobat 10 PDF driver. FF Appcrashs & I lose my webpage. FF will create a few Acrobat PDF's before it crashes again. I notified Mozilla, Bugzilla Bug 875691. I use IE9 to PDF print payments, receipts, etc. IE9 never crashes. I cannot use FF to pay or shop when I want a PDF receipt.

V29: can't 2x-click on Tabs Toolbar to create a tab. V34: can't quickly choose default search engine. Must use Options>Search Tab. When highlight text & right-click, why can't FF have 3 search engine choices instead of just default? This way, you never have to change default.

Tab bug: hold, make tiniest move on tab, will be moved to new window. An add-on can decrease FF's sensitivity. This is a security problem & I can't do that on this PC. FF should have about:config sensitivity controls built-in. Mozilla has been notified through Bugzilla.

FF is still a good browser. You can quickly copy your bookmarks from PC to laptop. I have the main menu with buttons on the first line, tabs on the next line, then the address & Search line, then my bookmarks. With FF, you can place many features on screen with minimal space. Mozilla should have more buttons to place, such as all the tabs on Options and the Options>Advanced tabs.

Unfortunately, FF gets worse every upgrade. Sometimes, I get the feeling that Mozilla is just arrogant & they make whatever changes they please. Sometimes I think they don't listen at all to their users.

"Left Firefox for Chrome because of the HYPE! CAME BACK!"

December 08, 2014  |  By bigblkman522

 |  Version: Mozilla Firefox 34.0.5

Pros

Speed, user friendly, less nonsensical apps and extensions, up dated themes available too! I don't have to be a social media zombie for a feeling of belonging.

Cons

Not too happy to learn of possible ad pitching.

"no problems for me"

November 29, 2014  |  By ChoiceVoice

 |  Version: Mozilla Firefox 33.1.1

Pros

-very small package compared to a particularly popular browser.
-open source
-i like the new interface.
-still the best for security plugins
-easier to use multiple profiles than chrome.
-i use a sandbox on my browser (from spyshelter). it breaks webkit updaters. but it works fine with firefox.

Cons

-the temptation is there to add too many plugins. which can make firefox slow or unstable depending on plugins you choose.
-no built in sandbox. to compensate for this, i use noscript. but this can be cumbersome.

Summary

i have navigated to firefox with the demise of opera presto. with the right plugins, it has adequately replaced opera.

"Avoid at all cost"

November 28, 2014  |  By skillfulgil01

 |  Version: Mozilla Firefox 33.0.2

Pros

Privacy has always been their priority. I value that.

Cons

Crashes, Freezes, Etc.

Summary

I've always been an avid Firefox user. I've avoided IE, Chrome, and any other browser. But it seems like the year 2000 was maaaaaaany moons ago and now Mozilla is filled with problems that trickle down to us. I've been avoiding installing their latest version although it clearly reads CRITICAL. Last upgrade I did, somehow, half my add-ons were no longer compatible, it somehow updated everything, although I had Auto- Updates shut down. I feel, if your PC is doing well, why update it.There's always an issue with them now. Guess, "Oops we're sorry" after a crash is the norm now. I just went back to an older version of Mozilla Firefox and went into the folder and deleted the UPDATE file so that I won't see that pestering Pop Up saying it needs to be updated.

"What have you done?"

November 11, 2014  |  By sbach65

 |  Version: Mozilla Firefox 33.1

Pros

I can't think of any pros right now because I haven't been able to get past all the crap on Firefox that wasn't there before. I think everything that was good is gone.
I don't know why a couple of people are basically repeating what the Firefox employees are saying, but they can't be using the new versions.

Cons

Everything that is being said about security is wrong. Yeah it's speedy at bringing up ads and other garbage that I have to close it and then it still isn't closed, but I can't find where it's open.
This was my favorite browser on windows and now I can't open it for fear it will spread its disease all over my computer.

Summary

I want the good Firefox back.

"Getting worse all the time"

November 06, 2014  |  By skipper_h

 |  Version: Mozilla Firefox 33.0.2

Pros

Seems to me, meanwhile all pros have gone

Cons

Freezing the entire machine over and over again, same problem reproduceable on three different PCs running Win7 Pro 32 and 64

Summary

Although that problem has been reported by many users, mozilla is not able (or willing?) to fix it. Instead, a new version every second day, and the behavior of the software still remains the same. This is not the kind of reliable software I prefer. Probably I will have to change to Google chrome - sadly ...
