    "No improvements, increased timeouts"

    August 31, 2015  |   By lmonteros

    Version: Mozilla Firefox 40.0.3

    Pros

    Same old Firefox, nothing new to learn.

    Cons

    Timeouts and non-connections increased

    Summary

    Why issue a new release when nothing has really changed? Or better, why does Firefox issue so many releases to fix bugs or security? In this recent release, I am getting timeouts on a site I visit every day which has cookies already loaded, and non-connection on the secure, trusted site NASA.gov. I'm afraid this kind of thing is SOP with Mozilla releases.

    "I was forced to return to 31 soon."

    August 30, 2015  |   By UserAccountVXSUDYED

    Version: Mozilla Firefox 40.0.3

    Pros

    I wrote all articles to Summary.

    Cons

    I wrote all articles to Summary.

    Summary

    I updated Firefox ESR from 31 to 38. But, I was forced to return to 31 soon. Because Firefox ESR 38 had many malfunctions. Additionally, Firefox ESR 38 had many inconvenient points. Firefox ESR 38 disappointed me. I hope that Firefox developers never upgrade Firefox. I will write detail problems and troubles in below.

    When I updated it, all icons of bookmarks were vanished.

    When I updated it, all information of [already-read addresses (displayed purple)] were reset. So, all link addresses became blue.

    [Menu bar > Tool > Apps] were added. It is very obstructive.

    And, Firefox ESR 38 has many other malfunctions and troubles.

    Therefore, I rewound to Firefox ESR 31. I recommend for you to remain Firefox ESR 31 strongly.
