WOW FIREFOX 28 IS A POS!

Posted

I had to upgrade and 28 is all bloat and whistles. It's really a piece of garbage. I kept version 16 because I knew upgrading would mean trouble. All I did was upgrade to 28 and now I need to get another browser. Sorry, you guys are losers.

Feel free to install any browser of your choice. Please be aware though that installing Firefox16 increases risks to your computer and personal data. It is outdated, no longer supported and not secure.

You would be better off installing any up to date browser; than using Firefox 16. I note however you use XP and maybe that needs updating also.
