    "I LOVE it."

    August 31, 2014  |   By jal9904

    Version: Mozilla Firefox 31.0

    Pros

    LOTS of customization. I moved the toolbar items to the place I want and removed the ones I don't want.
    Sync for multiple computers.

    Cons

    Nothing to see here move along.

    Summary

    I used to use comodo dragon and avant but now I am stuck with this. I love the sync feature and the ability to customized the toolbars and add new ones (unlike chrome).

    "Yahoo Toolbar Malware?"

    August 19, 2014  |   By sickbirds

    Version: Mozilla Firefox 31.0

    Pros

    Firefox has always been a pretty good alternative to IE. Many people still using older versions of Windows that Microsoft no longer supports really need Firefox.

    Cons

    I don't understand why recent Firefox downloads have been slipping in Yahoo Toolbar, which has many of the attributes of malware. And for most people it is difficult to remove.

    Summary

    I know Firefox is free and also understand that they need to make some money, possibly from Yahoo at this time. But I don't understand risking the reputation of the product and the years of hard work by a whole lot of people, with the very disruptive Yahoo toolbar.

    "The Old Orange Fox, ain't what she used to be..."

    August 11, 2014  |   By dougdartsch

    Version: Mozilla Firefox 31.0

    Pros

    1.) It's not Internet Explorer
    2.) It isn't owned by Bill Gates
    3.) It isn't owned by Apple

    Cons

    1.) Each recent revision removes more good features
    2.) 100% of my add-on/extension malware problems occur with Firefox

    Summary

    I was one of the biggest fans of Firefox from day one. In the recent past however, great features have been removed, and it has fallen prey to a plethora of malware laden add-ons and extensions. I have had this problem on every machine, and in my family I am the caretaker and that is about ten machines.
    I have zero problems with chrome, which is my primary browser now, and zero problems as well with I.E., although I only use it when I have to; opening two yahoo or gmail accounts at the same time, etc.
    Its like saying goodbye to an old friend, but at this point, I have to move on.

    "FF v.31 has some new features, but it's still a failure"

    July 25, 2014  |   By wyzwyk

    Version: Mozilla Firefox 31.0

    Pros

    Add-on extensions are, and have always been, the best part of the Firefox user experience.

    Cons

    The Australis GUI may be fine for neophytes or Firefox users that need some hand holding when it comes to organizing add-ons, but this user interface simply doesn't work well for power users. Why else would the extension Classic Theme Restorer be so popular? With 627 reviews 612 have 5 stars, 14 with 4 stars, 1 that has 3 stars, and none with 1 or 2 stars. This extension saves Firefox. I don't know what I'd do without it.

    Summary

    Six weeks have gone by since Firefox v.30 was released, so today I downloaded and installed the newest version. What's new? Well, for desktop users, this version sports a search field on a new tab page. This allows users to start new searches without having to go to the search bar. There is also a malware detection and blocker feature that runs by default whenever users download files. If not wanted it can be turned off. As a Linux user I wouldn't have use for this feature, but for Windows users I could see this being very useful. More and more download sites are allowing applications to piggyback on the desired primary download, and let's face it, way too many users are not careful when reading the instructions on how to opt-out on these downloads. Also included in v.31 is some sort of parental control. There are a number of other new features with this release, but most are for developers. In this release cycle Mozilla posted that 3,025 bugs were found and fixed. While all these changes and bug fixes are nice the change I most wanted still goes unaddressed, that of getting rid of that awful Australis Gui that has been with us since version 29. The only way this browser is remotely useable for me is with the help of the Classic Theme Restorer extension. For Firefox power users it's a must have add-on. The features in this extension should have been built into the browser, but as we all know Mozilla, for unknown reasons, committed to a minimalist only GUI. It would have been nice if they had listened to the many users who tried the pre-release versions and voiced their negative feelings on them. Sadly, their words went unheeded and we are now saddled with Australis.
