A must-have app for every Internet user.
1) Best in terms of security and privacy.
2) Simple UI.
3) Easy way of bookmarking.
4) A large data-base of add-ons.
5) Only browser provides SBI facility.
6) Best for slow networks.
7) 3D web page view back.
1)does not provide "Past As Plain Text" facility.
Our opinion:- Pick it.
Firefox should be compatible with add-ons, if it says it supports them. Performance falls down as we install add-ons, even if it is as small as in kilobytes.

This last version have some not-well-thought design.
First of all, is not original: looks like Chrome!
Some menu bars should be more customizable. In fact, customization is worse than in prior versions.
The right panel is not very useful (so far, It is an annoying and useless "tool"? Why is it on the right?)
And the worst part: Markers icon and that stupid "star" icon are not splitable. This leads to accidentally mark a page instead of opening Markers' tab.
If one intents to dock Markers tab, this can only be done in two steps instead of simply click on the Markers icon.
Apart of design issues, seems that this new version is heavier and doesn't seem to manage very well multiple windows opened.
Once in a while, Firefox gets so slow that I must shut it down in order to refresh memory.
(In Windows Task Manager, Firefox can easily lead to almost 2 gigs of system memory).
Please correct me if there is any issue not as accurate as it seems.
Why don't they keep this software as simple as it was?
Looks like the Windows 8 flop, by removing the start button.
I very much like the add-ons. But FF seems to be very bloated. And it seems to take up more and more of the memory during use. Once in a while I have to reboot my PC..... to get everything up to speed again.
the best customized browser out there, tweak it, break it, and it's still alive and performing good.
you choose the way it looks, the way it works, and the best thing open source, everyone with thr right skills can create great stuff for it or ask somebody to do it.
you can't make the wrong choise with this one
Firefox has so much more to offer the end user than ANY other browser. I still use IE, Chrome and Safari, but I couldn't do without Firefox now. I love the download helper, allowing you to pause and resume downloads, and other add-ons as well.
Has been my browser of choice in all operating systems since before it was named firefox - the only drag is the overwhelming number of add-ons wich tends to slow your browsing experience down when you add your 20th "absolutely necessary extension"
Its easy to use, stylish, secure, safe and 'unbugged' internet browser; its better than safari and far better than Microsoft IE and Netscape Navigator. I still remember those problem days when I used IE. Thanks to Firefox. This browser has led me to think about purchasing linux/ubuntu as operating system for my PC and Laptop.
