Editors' review

As more users continue to abandon Internet Explorer, Mozilla's popular Firefox gains traction in the browser space. Version 1.5 of Firefox offers a few notable features, foremost of which is the ability to reorder tabs by dragging and dropping them. You'll also find a tool that lets you quickly clean up your surfing history with two clicks of the mouse or a hot-key combo. The latest iteration of the browser seems more responsive than it has in the past and also is more efficient; with 10 windows open, Firefox consumed slightly less RAM than either IE or Opera.

If you're new to Firefox entirely, you'll appreciate the other features, including the RSS feeds, the JavaScript debugger, the basic download manager, and the ability to search several popular sites (such as Google) directly from the address bar. You can easily create toolbars by dragging and dropping icons. More technically minded users will appreciate that Firefox displays the page source in a new window, using indents and color-coded tags like an HTML editor. The built-in pop-up blocker is still extremely effective, and Firefox's reuptation for tight security is still well deserved. Anyone who's tired of IE will find more than one reason to like this free alternative.

    "AOL toolbar not available for 31.0"

    July 23, 2014   |   By opulence625

    Version: Mozilla Firefox 31.0

    Pros

    The only change in version 31.0 from previous versions is the lack of the aol toolbar.

    Cons

    the newest version 31.0 does allow an aol toolbar. They should have notified there users of this change before downloading it.

    Summary



    Updated on Jul 23, 2014

    Can not view my Facebook page on version 31.0 either. Mozilla Firefox should debug upgrades before issuing them. How do I go back to a previous version?
