    "Updates only make things worse"

    July 23, 2015  |   By rc191

    Version: Mozilla Firefox 39.0

    Pros

    Not too many Pro's--- Not a great deal of choices for web browsers. Netscape didn't really try, and then couldn't keep up with the new "Bells Whistles, and garbage" that invades each page we go to. Explorer, is the default for most people, and they could care less about their users.
    Firefox, in the beginning was a great Browser. Key word WAS.....

    Cons

    Firefox is their own worst enemy, and each upgrade only makes things worse, and it takes much time and effort to undo, or fix what the updates screw up. Then, Firefox gets crazy with "Add-Ons" "Apps, and unwanted and unneeded "TOOLS" If you go back to the last version, or choose not to update, you are constantly NAGGED to upgrade.
    It is or has become more trouble than its worth. If you don't have it, DON'T download it. Stick with what you have or find other options. I know a few are out there.
    Lastly, once you have the browser and used it for a while, you are stuck. Unless you have several days of free time to bring another browser up to where you are happy with.

    Summary

    It was a decent browser and was user friendly, in the early years. Now you are incessantly nagged to update, and get add ons and apps that are for the most part garbage, and do nothing to enhance your web surfing.
    Firefox makes you spend more time fixing what the updates mess up, and any "help" provided, is of no use. So you are stuck with a program that bugs you to update to a newer version of bad. And we fall for it......

    "Newer versions have gotten worse and worse"

    July 13, 2015  |   By sahd0w

    Version: Mozilla Firefox 39.0

    Pros

    It's a browser

    Cons

    I actually broke down and installed Chrome after being a loyal Mozilla user for years. I can't take it anymore. It is so slow, so laggy, so unreliable... I actually hate it at this point. Videos constantly tear and freeze while the audio plays on, even opening gmail causes the entire browser to freeze for 3 seconds at a time every ten seconds or so. It can't handle the common auto-refreshing of Facebook or reddit or other websites that load more content as you scroll. It's just really, really bad.

    Summary

    I used to love Mozilla, but it causes me nothing but frustration after the updates.

    "The Best Browser"

    July 12, 2015  |   By fredg06

    Version: Mozilla Firefox 39.0

    Pros

    FAST. I finally have an upgraded Dell computer, with much more RAM and faster INtel processor. Using Firefox 39, and could not be more satisfied with a browser.

    Cons

    Will not play some videos at certain sites, but nothing really bad. Will use my IE8 (on my XP computer) to go back and view them if needed.

    Summary

    NO problems with Firefox 39...none at all that I can think of. It's FAST, and I used a couple of tweaks found in Google search, about:config, and changing some pipelining to True....made it even faster.

    Summary

    besides the script errors, i love firefox's open tab browsing. such a joy switching back and forth on websites with ease.
