Why firefox has been releasing more updates these days

Posted

In my observation, Firefox has been releasing more updates than before. What is the reason behind that? in firefox release version notes Interesting points that I found were you are fixing bugs and reporting new bugs with the every release, why do you release the product in the market if you know the issues ? with every release? What is the reason behind that?

Does this conclude here ? NO . Firefox crashes most of the times, sometimes flashplayer has been crashed , many times firefox is not reponding . Why can't these be fixed permanently?

Firefox updates every 6 weeks, and has been doing this since Mid 2012. This is part of Rapid Release, https://blog.lizardwrangler.com/2011/08/25/rapid-release-process/.

The only known bugs we ship with are either affect a very small portion of users, or aren't reliably reproducible for us to fix (if you look at the release notes there are only 4 known bugs, and they have been the same for many releases and almost nobody is affected by them).

As for your Firefox crashing and freezing, try resetting it, Refresh Firefox - reset add-ons and settings. Flash is a separate issue that Adobe has to fix, there is nothing Mozilla can do about that that we haven't already done.
