Editors' review

Mozilla Firefox maintains its position among the top browsers, while continuing to boast its signature full-featured and open browsing experience. Though it might not have been the pioneer of such concepts like tabbed browsing, it was a catalyst for bringing the concept to mainstream audiences. These features are complemented by an impressive library of over 10,000 extensions that add even more functionality and value to users, thanks to its robust browser. The more recent releases have brought significant improvements to managing memory usage, and Firefox's private-browsing features have gotten more advanced, as well.

Firefox has also ramped up its Social API in recent versions, allowing for direct connections with the Facebook platform; version 21 opens up more networks to connect with by integrating MSN Now, Cliqz, and Mixi services directly into the browser interface. The "Do Not Track" privacy features in Firefox have also been updated, bringing new "neutral" default settings; that means neither "track me" nor "do not track me." However, it's still unclear how the default setting will behave any differently than picking "track me."

Version 21 also adds a monitoring tool called "Heath Report." The Health Report includes a Raw Data feed showing every item that's been scanned and tracked. This graphical representation of browser performance is designed to give users valuable data about startup time, extensions, crashes, and uptime--as well as send data back (if allowed by the user) to Mozilla to help the Firefox team build a better browser. Firefox also allows users to toggle sharing off--via a huge "Data Sharing" button at the top of the interface, or users can disable the entire Health Report via Tools > Options > Advanced > Data Choices.

    "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?
