Wow! Another major release. Any powerful new features?
They've taken away the http:// from the url bar


and whats the reason for that?

the url bar is massive given the removal of other stuff as well. Do they think we need an extra 4 characters or something?

funny I click on check for updates and its downloading an update.

I told it to check not download. If I was doing this on my 3G dongle I would be furious.

It does seem tho on every FF update they either copying chrome or making changes for the sake of it.

Now its done its download it just says apply update and not what version it is, very devious behaviour of the app now.

Have firefox still got the separate search box? I love the way chrome uses the URL box for searching as well entering addresses.

I was surprised that I did like it so much to be honest, but I could not go back to a separate search box

i know you can remove it, you could do that even in version 2, but the URL bar did not work like the one on Chrome.

You can use Firefox address bar to do search.

It does and I want it to stay. But if chrome dont have it I guess firefox will copy and remove it soon.

Think what the average resolution is now days on a desktop, even on a laptop its fairly high.

Then ask yourself what is the point of trying to save the space taken up by the search bar. The address bar would get bigger and its already easily big enough.

It seems browsers (and OS's windows 8 onwards) are now been primarily designed for mobile devices. Which have severe space issues on their tiny screens.

I reported tesco.com and other visa verification sites broken, mozilla closed bug as web site broken funny. So it works in FF3.6 IE, opera. Visa and tesco major companies used by millions and firefox wont fix.
