    "Spoilt by a Sync Feature Set that Sucks!"

    August 15, 2012  |   By Bandolier

    Version: Mozilla Firefox 14.0.1

    Pros

    Plenty - really I love it!

    Cons

    Sync - is a dog!

    Summary

    "One of the most important features in the modern Firefox is Sync. Sync smoothly synchronizes your bookmarks, passwords, preferences, history, and tabs, not only with other computers, but also with your Android version of Firefox."

    Problem is that Sync does not work / continue to work / tell you that its syncing / provide any degree of user control.

    I have tried many times to set up sync between my desktop / laptop / Android phone including completing deleting the sync account several times and can never get it to work reliably. Support questions go unanswered presumably because it has real issues!

    Really needs a complete rethink and is probably undergoing one as I write this?

    "It's a memory HOG because of Adobe Flash!!!"

    July 24, 2012  |   By snake1953

    Version: Mozilla Firefox 14.0.1

    Pros

    There's a lot of them.

    Cons

    Freezes up too much because of the integration of Flash. It won't release RAM when a task is done. When it becomes non responsive the only way to clear that away is to force it to crash via Microsoft's Process Explorer. I like version 12.0 because it would use too much of my computers memory. This version and 13.0 just hog up my RAM and won't release it whatsoever.

    Summary

    Mozilla, you took 20 steps backwards with your latest versions. I shouldn't have to force it to crash just to make the browser responsive so that I can complete time sensitive online tasks. GIVE ME BACK a more stable version of Firefox!

    "Don't Bother Upgrading"

    July 19, 2012  |   By MacGuffin

    Version: Mozilla Firefox 14.0.1

    Pros

    There are no pros.

    Cons

    You're kidding, right?

    Summary

    What a mistake! This is without a doubt the worst version of Firefox I've ever used. It slows up to the point that attempting to type is like slogging one's way through molasses and it's not handling video well either. Mind you, perhaps this "will be less of a problem as hardware improves," i.e. my 2.5 year old 3.06 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo MacBook Pro clearly isn't up to the task of running a BROWSER to its best advantage (I mean, come on). In the meantime, Version 14.0.1 is going into the trash and I'm heading back to the previous release. Does CNET actually test drive these things before composing (and inflicting on us) the War and Peace of software reviews??
