WTF are you people doing? Firefox sucks almost as bad as IE now, please stop "fixing" it.

With each new version you suck a little bit more.

You have become as bad as google, updating and changing for no good reason, in a race to the bottom with yourself.

The whole reason I started using Firefox is because it worked, now after thousands of installs and convincing users to ditch IE you have become just as bad.

I now restart Firefox at least two or three times a day. The memory requirements are staggering and FF is now SLOW.

First thing out of the box you will say "you have too many add ons", sorry, I only use one, text to voice 1.10.

Three tabs open and over 300,000K and using 1-7% CPU just to type this text.

Don't bother with an answer, just clean up your mess. In the alternative we can all wait for someone to come along and eat your lunch. Give me a browser that WORKS and I will forget Firefox ever existed. (!!!)

Mozilla listens to it's users and therefore response is necessary to let you know that we are here listen and your feedback is greatly appreciated.

However, the people who answer questions here, for the most part, are other Firefox users volunteering their time (like me), not Mozilla employees or Firefox developers.

If you want to leave feedback for Firefox developers, you can go to the Firefox Help menu and select Submit Feedback... or use this link. Your feedback gets collected at http://input.mozilla.org/, where a team of people read it and gather data about the most common issues.

I switched to Pale Moon browser today. Because Firefox has been open source there are clones of it available. Pale Moon is literally everything Firefox was(down to each individual option) before Mozilla decided to break their own product and replace it with Google Chrome 29.

Looks the same, works the same, won't be updating and breaking itself all the time. Cheers all.

After enduring FF29/FF29.0.1 since it was pushed out, I've had enough! I, too, have downloaded, and am installing Pale Moon.

Walking away from my desktop for a couple of hours should not result in a "Firefox has crashed" window -- "Restart? / Quit?". (You bet I'm quitting -- in a major way -- since I've been using Firefox since it was simply "Mozilla" -- the old Internet browser plus mail user agent in a single program.)

I sort of assumed, since 29 sucks so bad, that we'd be seeing 29.0.2, 29.0.3, 29.0.4, .... trying to fix the memory and stability problems. (Yeah, the UI sucks too, but I've been in the industry too long to think that the bubble-headed fashionistas who _absolutely_ _must_ _have_ the latest _darling_ appearance, are ever going to listen to us old stick-in-the-muds who just want the damned thing to work -- RELIABLY!.) Really, we do not need new looks, features, or gratuitous changes every single quarter.

But there hasn't been a single update in the last three weeks! It appears that Mozilla is doing NOTHING to clean up this mess. I'm becoming despondent .... what's next Chrome? [blechh] IE? [Holy F...g Sh*te!]
