Firefox automatically updated itself to version 3.6.7 on even though it is not out yet as a stable release. The about page says it's version 3.6.7 without any mention of "beta" anywhere.

I had an update pushed to me for a site I don't even use. Thanks to this change, certain time-critical web apps no longer work because Mozilla decided to cater to a useless internet game. I can't perform business using the Firefox browser because you decided to cater to a mostly-useless demographic instead of those that use the web for productive things.

Back to IE we go for our corporate intranet. *JUST* as I had obtained approval to move us all over to Firefox.

Way to screw it up, Mozilla.

For the past few weeks I have been trying to play some games to pass the time away. my firefox is current, my internet is cable, and I have called my internet company a number of times telling them to fix it! but the more that i think about it. the more I see its related to these games... I fear saying the games out of embarrassment. but when I looked up the games, 1 brought up that FF had a memory leak(witch I do not see how that would go into my internet connection) and the other does have a history of lagging... but flat out cutting off my internet to my laptop? I bought my laptop brand new 4months ago, all I can tell u is its an acer.. I'm VERY anal about running my spywear program. and the desktop connected to the same internet, never has any problems. I tried to play my game in IE, and it was fine. But I've been a firefox user for YEARS! I'm not a fan of IE. I don't want to have to close Firefox to play a game for awhile, then reopen it later just to finish browsing...

I've been a firefox user for five years and I do not want to end this now. You need to release an update as soon as possible, because this is the most serious problem in the history of your browser. You've probably already lost millions of users, you'll lose them all if we don't see an update, no one wants to use a browser that crashes all the time.

I'm switching to Chrome for now on, I hope not permanently.

Since a few versions back, the Find feature has changed for the worse. Now when I type a search term it finds and selects the first match as usual, but then takes focus away from the Find bar and onto the page, so instead of being able to hit enter rapidly to cycle through matches either nothing happens or I end up opening a link. This seems counter-intuitive so I'm not sure why it's been changed, but is there any way to set it back to the way it used to be?

Someone managed to sync my computer to theirs after I foolishly left my computer somewhere. Now this person is watching everything I do and everywhere I go on my computer and changes my passwords whenever the mood strikes them! I didn't even know you could do this kind of thing, I am fairly new on computers. This is really making me uneasy and I would appreciate any kind of help with this.

I am sick and tired of this insane bug. It affects me on a daily basis. 20% of the time I attempt to type anything into any text box, for every keypress, Firefox will treat them as requests to 'go back' and it launches me several pages backwards through my browsing history in the tab. I then I have to skip forward and attempt filling it in again. It usually works after 1-2 attempts but like i said this is happening 20% of the time on text input forms, especially FARK.com.
