    "Great browser when it doesn't freeze up"

    January 4, 2013  |   By injured_cowboy

    Pros

    Loads webpages fast

    Cons

    It tends to freeze up at least once a day if not 3 or 4 times a day. That part gets very frustrating. The mouse will freeze where it's at in the page until you push the Windows button to open the start menu. That usually frees up the mouse, but you can't close a window or use any functions on the webpage. I have to bring up the task manager and end the process because it is using too much memory. It will usually restore your session, but a lot of times it will freeze right back up to where you'll have to start over. I wish they would fix this!!!

    Summary

    Firefox is definitely not as stable as it used to be. I hope they get off their but and fix the bugs because I hate changing browsers. I'll probably continue to use it only because I hate change.
