    "I love Firefox 23's smooth scrolling & many'personas'."

    August 15, 2013  |   By fnibhriain

    Version: Mozilla Firefox 23.0

    Pros

    Smooth scrolling, buttons and 'persona' options.

    Cons

    There is still a problem with Javascript on Mac OS X 10.6.8.Despite having it "enabled", some web pages still request its activation.

    I preferred the older Add-ons buttons, rather than just the 2 new "Always Activate" & "Never Activate" ones.

    Summary

    I really wish the whole Java problem could be sorted out once and for all, so that we could be reassured there are no continued security risks.

    Otherwise, Firefox 23 offers the usual high standards function-wise and interface-wise.

    "My default browser also"

    July 4, 2013  |   By appleimacdude

    Version: Mozilla Firefox 22.0

    Pros

    seems very stable
    fast

    Cons

    none so far

    Summary

    Not sure how to evaluate a browser properly, but this one does the job, seems fast, stable. When I had problems on the Dodge.com website getting some options to take (such as the orange paint) I also tried my other two browsers, Safari and Icab - both had the same problem, so apparently it wasn't the browser. Contacted Dodge about this, as I tried on different days, same problem. I haven't use IE for years - I have felt no need for IE.

    July 4, 2013  |   By lrugolo

    Version: Mozilla Firefox 22.0

    Pros

    Clean interface, easy to learn and use, fast, rich and powerful preferences panel, SMOOTH SCROLLING, strong security features, and much more.

    Cons

    None that I can think of.

    Summary

    What's not to like about it? It's my best browser, my default browser.

    "THe browser does everything I want it to."

    May 29, 2013  |   By Aswilde

    Version: Mozilla Firefox 21.0

    Pros

    As I said, Firefox seems to me an excellent browser. No complaints.

    Cons

    This isn't what you're asking for, but can I just note my desire, which I'm sure many people share, for Firefox on the iPad.

    "No real problems with it"

    May 23, 2013  |   By appleimacdude

    Seems to work well, as it generally has. I still use icab occasionally, or Safari

    Cons

    Nothing I can think of offhand.

    Summary

    Seems to be a great, stable browser.

    "I see it as a great product"

    May 6, 2013  |   By rickster24

    Version: Mozilla Firefox 20.0.1

    Pros

    I really do not see any more than in the past

    Cons

    I find that it stops more often than the older version. It comes up with an option to restore and this is a pain. I just want to go forward

    "Did something to my computer!"

    March 17, 2013  |   By keepitgoing

    Version: Mozilla Firefox 19.0.2

    Pros

    Can't comment due to not being able to download it properly.

    Cons

    Did not download properly and can no longer use the Mozilla Firefox browser of any version on my computer.

    Summary

    I gave this 2 stars, but, I really have no idea how this latest version works! After downloading this version of Mozilla Firefox, I was unable to use it nor was I able to use the previous version I had on my computer. This download did something to my computer that NO longer allows me to use Mozilla Firefox. I tried downloading it a second time, but still could not use it. In fact, I cannot even uninstall the download. I'm given an error message!!

    I may be the only one with this issue, and, this could be an excellent browser version. Unfortunately, I cannot use it to find out. I have been using Mozilla Firefox as my main browser for years and never had this issue previously. Up until now, I have been very satisfied with Mozilla!!

    "To much of a browser for me."

    March 1, 2013  |   By Paul McNulty

    Version: Mozilla Firefox 19.0

    Pros

    Has everything, but is to complicated.

    Cons

    To many gadgets that no one (me anyways) uses.

    Summary

    If your a geek, this is for you. If your average like me it's to much.

    "Not perfect"

    March 1, 2013  |   By kameosakura

    Version: Mozilla Firefox 19.0

    Pros

    Speedy and concise on my search's , excellent spell checker , can handle multiple tabs at once (14+) with no problems.

    Cons

    when a background update is getting done it will tend to slowdown

    Summary

    Search's aren't locked down to make it look good unlike chrome can be and i haven't had any add-on problems either.
    detail is excellent when displaying

    the only real downer is the fact it sometimes takes a little time if there is a lot to get on to the screen.

    I highly recommend firefox.
