Editors' Review

+

Mozilla's latest browser, Firefox 29, features the new Australis design, which adjusts the user interface, modernizing the look of tabs, menu layout, and toolbar. However, the new design also brings the pain of change: Users will have to adapt to rearrangements of core features.

Pros

New design: Firefox's new design is a bit Chrome-like, presenting menu options as large icons, similar to Chrome apps. The tabs have been cleaned up and look curvier and sleeker. Subtle animations make the Firefox experience slightly more interactive. For example, bookmarking a site triggers an animation of a star dropping into the bookmark icon.

Compatibility: Firefox 29 maintains compatibility with many older, popular extensions. The Australis interface has been around for a while for users who've been on the Beta and Aurora channels. Though many extensions are disabled by default, you'll find many old add-ons work with the new design.

Cons

Learning curve: You may be thrown off by the new UI. Things aren't where they used to be, which will likely cause problems for the millions of users who have become accustomed to a Firefox layout that hasn't changed much over a dozen versions.

Extension updates: Though many extensions work, some add-ons will likely break, especially toolbars and theme packs. Stable channel users will have to wait for newer versions of many add-ons to be rolled out in the coming months. Because Australis delivers a major visual overhaul, many themes will break and need updating to reflect the new interface.

Bottom Line

Mozilla has given its interface an impressive redesign, making Firefox a modern experience across all platforms, including mobile. Mozilla argues that the visual upgrades and interface changes will ultimately outweigh the near-term hiccups that users will face. Though Australis begins paving the way for Firefox OS, only time will tell how receptive users will be. That said, everything under the hood is still the Firefox we know and love: an open-source beast of a browser that champions customization and speedy load times.

"What have you done?"

November 11, 2014  |  By sbach65

 |  Version: Mozilla Firefox 33.1

Pros

I can't think of any pros right now because I haven't been able to get past all the crap on Firefox that wasn't there before. I think everything that was good is gone.
I don't know why a couple of people are basically repeating what the Firefox employees are saying, but they can't be using the new versions.

Cons

Everything that is being said about security is wrong. Yeah it's speedy at bringing up ads and other garbage that I have to close it and then it still isn't closed, but I can't find where it's open.
This was my favorite browser on windows and now I can't open it for fear it will spread its disease all over my computer.

Summary

I want the good Firefox back.

"Getting worse all the time"

November 06, 2014  |  By skipper_h

 |  Version: Mozilla Firefox 33.0.2

Pros

Seems to me, meanwhile all pros have gone

Cons

Freezing the entire machine over and over again, same problem reproduceable on three different PCs running Win7 Pro 32 and 64

Summary

Although that problem has been reported by many users, mozilla is not able (or willing?) to fix it. Instead, a new version every second day, and the behavior of the software still remains the same. This is not the kind of reliable software I prefer. Probably I will have to change to Google chrome - sadly ...

"Crash and burn"

October 29, 2014  |  By patsydg

 |  Version: Mozilla Firefox 33.0.2

Pros

None at all

Cons

This browser continued to crash and burn, brought malware with it, and now refuses to go away even though I've attempted to delete it. It's now being caught by Anti-Malware Bytes on a daily basis.

Summary

I wish I'd never downloaded it.

"Used to be great!"

October 14, 2014  |  By Harnic

 |  Version: Mozilla Firefox 33

Pros

Secure, fast. lots of very useful add-ons

Cons

New design really sux! Fortunately the archives have version 28. I reverted back to that & will stay there until Mozilla repairs the damage they've done, or I pick a different browser.

Summary

I've used Firefox since the first beta, but am considering trying others since they've messed with the design. I can't stand tabs on top!

"Version 32.0.3 SUPER FAST"

September 27, 2014  |  By riderchicky

 |  Version: Mozilla Firefox 32.0.3

Pros

Quick, easy to use and safer than Explorer. Closes when exited, unlike Google Chrome. Great plug-ins and themes available that make customization a breeze. Updates are regular and haven't caused a single problem on any of our computers

Cons

Hard to organize Bookmarks. Have to go into Unsorted Bookmarks in order to access all the folders. Other than that it's a breeze

Summary

ANYTHING is better than MS Explorer, we all know that. Chrome wouldn't shut down. Stayed open until I used Task Manager to kill processes. Not a big fan of Safari, another Apple garbage thing, so I have been using Firefox for about 5 or 6 years now. I love the simplicity of it and the security. Speed also rocks. Overall I am very pleased with the updates and the browser in general.
