[FB] Firefox 11 And Firefox 12 Features, Release Date - Page 8

post #71 of 108
Quasi-resurrection.

I actually wish Mozilla stopped this silly "let's try to be like Google and make as many new incremental releases as possible" idea. It works okay for something pushed to a web page (i.e., like the constantly-changing Gmail/other Google services layouts/features, on an almost-daily basis), but when you have to deal with the download/install process, it's annoying, and makes me want to update even less frequently.

you've never used the update feature? Might just be in nightly, but the nightly builds have an autoupdater that you can use.

OP: I've been on FF14 (nightly) and it's super nice.

Because Microsoft used to send them a cake with every release. More releases, more cakes.

I have been a Firefox user since they first released it and I hate 12. I have never had so much problem with a browser. I actually had to open up IE to make some pages work. I hate the Chrome fanboism but I might have to download it now.

Sometimes I just have to wonder if people are downloading an entirely different product than me.


Oh and to those complaining about updates, silent updates.

And never have I heard so much *****ing about a 2 second update process in my entire life.

I have only had a single solitary problem with Firefox my entire life (so far). That was when nvidia drivers conflicted with Firefox's Hardware Acceleration and caused it to crash every 10min. A simple click to turn it off fixed the problem.

The problems you are experiencing are most likely local issues isolated to your system and/or external issues. thumb.gif

I have been using Firefox forever and love it. biggrin.gif

Nope. I close FF when I'm done, sleep my computer when I don't use it. I don't like auto-updates in case something else I use gets broken because of it. And even if it auto-updates, you've still gotta wait for the "FF is updating" dialog box the next time you open it. I aim to minimize those worthless time-wasters.
