    "Still turned to garbage"

    April 2, 2015  |   By bdsolomon

    Version: Mozilla Firefox 37

    Pros

    I forget why I liked this the cons have become so overwhelming.

    Cons

    Crashes often, even when I'm not at the computer, sitting with some yahoo and board pages open. I come back and it crashed.

    Summary

    I have lately been having nothing but trouble with firefox... also at times with flashplayer.

    Since these last few updates it has been crashing even when I'm not touching the computer, with one or more open FF windows. The only possible flashplayer would be if yahoo (which was in two tabs) had some ad that showed up.

    I downloaded version 37 and it's already crashed twice in the past few hours. I'm likely not going to be using it much anymore.

    Very Bad Product Upgrade By FF

    You can and have done a lot better. Long time users of FF deserve better. What were you thinking rolling out a product this bad and cumbersome for users.

    "36.0.4 has too many glitches"

    March 26, 2015  |   By R0

    Version: Mozilla Firefox 36.0.4

    Pros

    There are many plug-ins and add-ons so a person man customize.
    Browser updates are frequent and most always work well.
    We were kept informed with most glitches and the FAQ
    This is my main browser

    Cons

    May I suggest having people who are experienced with the use of And coders who are well trained, to do database testing.
    This is horrible.
    I can't say for certain that this will send and that's very bad.
    Certain sites are supposedly not cooperating with intrusion of privacy but it didn't say anything about intruding by way of browsers did it? This if Very bad.
    * If you see this more than once, it's one of the glitches.
    I am Hoping there is a way to uninstall this latest upgrade. If not, I'll need 3 browsers in total. IE, Firefox and a backup. I only use IE if I absolutely have to.

    Summary

    Please be sure to test the upgrade before it's released.

    "Great except when it crashes, which is often"

    March 22, 2015  |   By Phil_on_LongIsland

    Version: Mozilla Firefox 36.0.3

    Pros

    Fast, lots of features, many ways to customize

    Cons

    Crashes frequently, most notably when delivering search results

    Summary

    I've used Firefox for years, across at least five different computers with different set-ups, and the results are the same: It crashes, usually on the first search results page when you search for something. This happens using Google, and even with Yahoo, for which Firefox is supposedly optimized. That's why, for me, this browser is good only as a secondary/back-up.

    "Replaced with Firefox Variant, Pale Moon"

    March 18, 2015  |   By BOBRGR

    Version: Mozilla Firefox 36.0.1

    Pros

    Provided base code for Pale Moon
    Backup in case Pale Moon or Chrome break

    Cons

    Crashes constantly
    Changes make it worse, impair productivity

    Summary

    For those of us that just need to get get stuff done and don't particularly like unhelpful change...especially change that impairs stability [crashes] and productivity [Ok, now how do I get it back to where it was], firefox has left us behind by trying to out version churn Chrome. For those who love change and crave novelty at the expense of productivity, get Firefox or Chrome. For those that prefer a browser that changes to enhance speed, performance and productivity and not just novelty, try Pale Moon.

    "keep crashing something to do with flash plug-in"

    March 16, 2015  |   By sonjco

    Version: Mozilla Firefox 36.0.1

    Pros

    The bookmarks or history right next to open pages and I have been using Firefox for years

    Cons

    For the last year its been the worst browser, keeps crashing and gets really buggy and unpleasant to use. It might have something to do with flash plug-in or maybe Java I am not sure. I have tired every suggestion on the forums and the help page.

    Summary

    I am using chrome and opera a lot more.

    "Unimpressive performance"

    March 13, 2015  |   By fredstrong2005

    Version: Mozilla Firefox 36.0.1

    Pros

    It is a solid product. Their plug-in/add-on system is unrivalled. However you want to change the browser there will be an add on for you.

    Cons

    However it has these performance issues. Sometimes when scrolling down a website I can feel a stutter. Also seems like having a lot of tabs open affects the tab you are on (slowdown). Performance issues in general can be ignored but when using the browser almost the whole day it becomes very noticeable.
    Also the interface is a bit too complex. The ideas are simple but the execution seems to have unnecessary layers to it.

    Summary

    Decided to switch from other browsers recently. It has a lot going for it. I would use it all the time because of the add-ons but the unreliable performance forces me to skip it.
