    "Fugly (Is this 10 characters?)"

    May 9, 2014  |   By MacGuffin

    Version: Mozilla Firefox 29.0.1

    Pros

    None over the previous release.

    Cons

    Good God, the graphics on the tabs look like Exploiter.

    Summary

    I can't begin to say how upset I am that I downloaded version 29.0.1 I take security seriously, which is why I immediately updated when prompted to do so. Firefox, like pretty much all browsers, had its limitations but appearance wasn't one of them. The graphics on the tabs are now at best reminiscent of non-serious browsers like Sea Monkey and Opera and at worst of Exploiter. As a result, everything is harder to read and fonts and icons suggest cartoons. For some reason, it has also become exceedingly difficult to drag Firefox into other position. I'll be reverting to whichever release I was using prior to this upgrade as soon as I post this. Wise up, developers. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

    ""Safeguards" make it difficult to use"

    May 7, 2014  |   By llocey

    Version: Mozilla Firefox 29.0

    Pros

    I used to like Firefox's ease of use.

    Cons

    I find that one site which I need to use is "forbidden" with this version of Firefox. It is very frustrating! I can't figure out how to correct this problem and have had to revert to a different browser to access this site.

    Summary

    I am more than just disappointed with this new version of Firefox and have deleted it from my computer.

    "I use Firefox"

    February 26, 2014  |  

    Version: Mozilla Firefox 27.0.1

    Pros

    It's pretty fast and works with most web sites. The search window allows some customization so that you are not stuck with using Yahoo, Bing, or Google Search

    Cons

    There are some websites that Firefox doesn't work with; so, I find it necessary to also use Safari.

    Summary

    It's a decent browser for the Mac computer. I like it better than Safari.

    Works exactly like I expect it to. Has great add-ons and extensions.

    Really haven't found anything I don't like about it.

    "Necessary for some sites"

    February 18, 2014  |   By macdad614

    Version: Mozilla Firefox 27.0.1

    Pros

    Fast enough.
    Allows me to view documents that some websites will not access using Safari.

    Cons

    Not any that I have observed.

    Summary

    CNET's site has green Download Now and Free Download buttons that all appear to be the same. CNET should NOT allow Google SPAM on this page.

    "Not Secure! Gets slower every update."

    January 29, 2014  |   By mannshands

    Version: Mozilla Firefox 26.0

    Pros

    Lots of plug-ins.

    Cons

    The plug-in container will eat all your memory. Streaming video constantly interrupted by buffering probs. Not secure, Tormail was hacked by the FBI using a Firefox exploit! Gets slower every time they update it, which is every 2 weeks these days.

    Summary

    I switched to Iron Browser, it's Chrome without all the tracking rubbish, and streams work well.

    "On a Downslide"

    December 25, 2013  |   By MacGuffin

    Version: Mozilla Firefox 26.0

    Pros

    I'm used to it.

    Cons

    Slower, less responsive.

    Summary

    The last two updates have rendered Firefox much more sluggish than it was, at least on my laptop. Typing is much slower, pages don't load as quickly, video is a joke, and unlike my other browsers, Firefox no longer plays nice with Gmail--I can't sign in at all despite reconfiguring to allow popups. Very disappointing.
