It is getting to where FF doesn't load most pages correctly or at all, with or without plugins installed, and regardless of whether the cache is cleared or not. FF is extremely slow too, even after a fresh install. FF is also not sandboxed. I have no such problems with Chromium.
Tech folks are telling me FF is dying. I was hoping FF would beat Google because I hate Google. I'm finding myself using Chromium most of the time and I hate how its preferences and plugins are limited compared to FF and it doesn't load the home page I specify, instead loading a useless mess of preset links I don't approve. But I have to say I'm at the point of ditching FF completely, which is a disgusting feeling of defeat because now it seems Google dominates the PC browser and it's not even customization-rich and I don't even get to assign my home page to the home button.
If I had to give FF a grade, it would be F. It's like an old car that only goes 25mph and only drives on a rapidly decreasing number of roads where upon the instrumentation fails to light up or the engine might stop altogether. What kind of legacy is this? I'm tired of google maps not displaying correctly. Missing fields, maps, buttons, and graphics all the time. What's the deal? FF used to be great but now it's useless to me; I don't understand why it's still around. Are there plans to redo FF to address all these issues?
If pages would just load correctly I'd even tolerate slower program loading. Sandboxing would be a huge plus and I don't think it's that difficult to achieve. Much has been done to beautify the FF gui while its basic ability to display pages properly and securely is heavily neglected. May I ask where this is going? Give me reasons to stick with FF... Isn't FF worth fixing up?
