Firefox’s rapid-release is one of the most asinine ideas any software company every came up with.
Extension/Add-on developers, many of whom develop those extensions as a sideline, are not able to keep up with the rapid-release INSANITY.
I have some extensions that the developers ceased updating with the FF6 release.
Firefox has lost touch with reality. People use Firefox to be more productive. Rapid-release actually hampers real-world productivity.
Firefox still has memory leakage and memory consumption problems. I recently noticed sluggishness with FF. I had only one tab windows open. I loaded Task Manager and found Firefox consuming over 900mb of RAM.
I solved my memory problem: I downloaded an extension that put “restart” on my file menu. I restart occasionally without even thinking about it. All of my opened tabs are there after restart.
I already told you that, didn’tt I? And now I’ve told you in triplicate. It pays toay attention to whom one is posting!
I had enough this morning and imported all my bookmarks into chrome. :(
So true. FF is on version 9 and I'm still on v 3.6.25 and will be until they quit doing security upgrades. There are ways to force continued use of some add-ons that have not been updated, but it would be better if they didn't put out a new version every other month.
My task manager shows 143,455 K but I have had it up to 160,000K.
Some report problems loading PDF. I used to experience that with earlier releases of FF. But no longer.
