i just checked—i have version 6-24, the newest.
noscript i don’t know anything about.
There are other addons that might potentially cause problems, I’m not sure...ABP perhaps? Or have you permanently suppressed the popup warnings?
I’m trying to remember because honestly I’ve mostly been dragging the same config along for several machines and several years with little more than minor tweaks needed to keep it running smoothly. Best I can offer is that it definitely does work, at least.
With those and Better Privacy I haven't had a serious infection in over a year on my XP or Vista systems. For me it just works.
Well, I finally figured out why I was having worse performance and other issues with Firefox like the author. I am running a 64 bit version of Win 7. Many of the plug ins in Firefox, like Flash Player and Adobe Reader don’t work well (or at all) with 64 bit. It works fine with IE because it isn’t a ‘plug in’ browser. I downloaded Adobe betas of the 64 bit add-ons and all is working well now.
