Yet again, another Firefox update that makes the software unusable! I can't just HOPE that my browser is going to work after an update. I depend on my computer being able to access the Internet and sites that I have bookmarked in my browser. However, it seems that every few updates is a complete and utter mess.
I have found a solution. I have exported my bookmarks as HTML so that I can load them into Google Chrome. I have "backed up my browser" by installing Google Chrome and using that. I haven't had a problem with it and I now have a STABLE browser to access the Internet.
Why can't we get Firefox upgrades that are truly upgrades and not just public bug testing? I don't remember this many UNSTABLE releases in the first few years of Firefox. I guest you've reached the "Kitchen Sink Limitation". I used to use Netscape until they tried to add everything to it including the kitchen sink. It got slow and buggy and it just wasn't worth the effort for me to have to keep worrying about whether or not my browser would be stable. So I changed over to the NEW, SMARTER, SMALLER, FASTER Firefox. Ahhhhhhh, the good old days.
Maybe if you came out with Firefox Classic, that allowed you to access the internet and only add on features that you needed. A Firefox that was small and fast and STABLE. Gee, maybe then I'd be able to pin you to my taskbar again and set you as my default browser. Unfortunately, your "updates" are almost guaranteed to provide me with less stability than the "old" version it replaces.
Here's hoping that you fix your problems...I've already fixed mine!
