Why, what's the terminal window for?

I'm still using 3.6 , works for me, with all the plugin's that i find useful, but as for continually updating something just because it's there,forget it 3.6 works why break it,

I'm thinking of going back to 3.6.x. I think they're still issuing security fixes for it.

Google have done for Firefox for me - the Google toolbar is not being updated (it only worked in v5/6 with the compatibility add-on) and now it is impossible to sign in.

Ironically Chrome doen't have the same features (at least not all together in the same easy to use toolbar) so I've gone back to Internet Explorer shocked.

There seems to be some twisted logic somewhere when Google take away a feature in Firefox that they don't (or not obviously) provide in Chrome but are happily continuing to support in IE.

And in under 6 weeks it will be Firefox 8

And no doubt FF 9 by end of year.

I'm staying put on 3.6 for the foreseeable future.

Perhaps a bottle of rosé instead.

They've taken away the http:// from the url bar
In other words, they've run out of ideas.
No, it's faster and uses less memory.


It could not be any slower and use any more memory, that memory leak have been with Firefox for years, about time they fixed it.

i used to love firefox, but they spoilt it after version3.5
