I am using latest version of Orbit Downloader and its doesn't have update anymore. However I have reverted to Firefox 4.0 to let Orbit Downloader work for me. A suggestion for Firefox Admins, ' Whenever new version is launched, please ensure it supports all previous add on and extensions'. Thanks

Get an update for Orbit.

Anyone want to know why more and more people are giving up on Firefox?

Firefox deliberately breaks the interface to Orbit, and it is Orbit's fault.


PS: It looks like the last change from Orbit was just to track another interface change from Firefox V:5. (I didn't realize Google saw Orbit as a competitor) (or is it Microsoft?)

Forgot what I originally wanted to post.

Just for the record, Firefox V:8 and Orbit don't play together, either.

I would start a separate thread for that if I thought anyone would actually try to fix the problem, but it is clear Firefox is doing this on purpose, for some reason.

I've tried reverting back to an earlier version of Firefox and still could no longer use Orbit downloader or Grabb++, and at the same time the older version would not allow me to use Plain Old Favorites. I have now re-upgraded back to Firefox 10.
