Mozilla Firefox is a free and open source Web browser descended from the Mozilla Application Suite and managed by Mozilla Corporation. Firefox is the second most widely used browser.
To display web pages, Firefox uses the Gecko layout engine, which implements most current web standards in addition to several features that are intended to anticipate likely additions to the standards.
Reviewing 28.0 (Mar 22, 2014)
I'm using firefox 28 right now, and I've to say that is the first time that I want to move to another browser. This version is highly unstable, 2 crashes in less than an hour with only a few tabs open. Right now I only have this tab (fileforum.betanews) and it's consuming 405.624KB, this is a big issue, I'm thinking to downgrade to v24 or use another browser like palemoon or qupzilla until this is not fixed.

fast and stable, now stop changing the ui.
10 stars to to the extension and stylish makers that make it possible for me to modify ff so i can fix all the ui problems that moozilla thinks we need.
still the best browser by far.

Being one of the first to complain about the missing "browser.download.useToolkitUI" it's only fair I'm one of the first to thank the powers that be for putting it back

If you liked version 24, you can get an Extended Support Release here...
I for one don't care to be Mozilla's beta tester with Final versions in between Extended Support Release versions. Firefox 24ESR is currently at v24.3 with today's update.
4 stars(for v24ESR) when compared to Opera, Chrome or Internet Explorer 9. Would be 5 stars if not for all the tinkering(unneeded bells and whistles), ridding of options that used to be and lousy interface(IMO) for Windows Vista on up.

I am sick of the azzclowns who develope this browser making continual changes to the API and interfaces so that add-ons break with new versions. Get your heads out from between your buttocks and stabilize the architecture permanently. At this point in time you're no longer teenagers spinning code in mommy's basement; develope the application accordingly.
To the devs:
I'm a long-time Firefox user and I'm tired of your BS - have a clue or get one installed.
Any bets on what they might have screwed up this time? :)
Firefox is best browser..Firefox is best for browsing.Using that you can download anything fast,also upload too.I am using the firefox latest version...Even if i open many tabs in the browser it will not get crashed ...It has many addons ,While using this browser i checked the browsing speed at http://www.scanmyspeed.com/
This versioning race makes NO sense. It muddies the waters for everyone and is the antithesis of what Mozilla was supposed to be about. A full version upgrade should have substantial changes in multiple areas of a product. At least some of the bugs introduced after v3 are finally being rooted out..I suppose that's "progress".
Why is some one posting versions of Firefox here using this confusing syntax ?
Why continue to use a word grouping that leads to flaming?
This was a problem before and even though a simple rearrangement of terms would prevent problems, some one continues to cause upheaval by placing the Firefox version numbering directly after the word Windows. This practice not only disrupts this site it also harms the reputation of Mozilla Firefox.
I move to, at least advise, the user who is responsible for this behavior to please adjust the title
Mozilla Firefox (v6) for Windows, 6.0 Beta 4
Mozilla Firefox (v6) 6.0 Beta 4 for Windows
Mozilla Firefox for Windows version 6.0 Beta 4
Mozilla Firefox for Windows V6.0 Beta 4
Mozilla Firefox for Windows 7/2000/Vista/XP
V6.0 Beta 4
It seems the title breaks badly with the page layout as written so perhaps all these could use adjusting as well
Mozilla Firefox (v2) for Windows 7/2000/Vista/XP
Mozilla Firefox (v3) for Windows 7/2000/Vista/XP
Mozilla Firefox (v3.5) for Windows 7/2000/Vista/XP
Mozilla Firefox (v3.6) for Windows 7/2000/Vista/XP
Mozilla Firefox (v4) for Windows 7/2000/Vista/XP
Mozilla Firefox (v5) for Windows 7/2000/Vista/XP
Mozilla Firefox (v7) for Windows 7/2000/Vista/XP
Mozilla Firefox (v8) for Windows 7/2000/Vista/XP
Dude, if you REALLY think you are so smart and know so much more than everyone else, why don't you be smart enough and download your English release from the directory you show us and install it - then find out what the hell version it is - it's not so difficult to see the "you are running the beta version" or something or another that gets loaded on the first start page of the program. THIS IS A DAMN BETA FOLKS - THE final version HAS NOT BEEN RELEASED!!! Don't install this and then come complain that something doesn't work. This is still BETA!!
Reviewing 5.0 (Jun 19, 2011)
4 all of user stating FX 5 Final is a fake; u r kindly invited 2 ck out ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/releases/5.0/win32
Choose the language u do prefere n u'll get the final FX 5 release.
That's all up 2 u folks.
I note in the review of Firefox 7.0a1 that the reviewer was havng problems with XMarks. There is a dev version of them that works perfectly and can be found here - https://rodan.lastpass.com/dev/xmarks...
That held me back from using it as I do like to link the various versions of Fx but now it is running well - and no crashes (yet)
On 21 March, FileForum claims to be posting the final release of Firefox 4.0 (i.e., not a release candidate). Mozilla's own FTP site lists that 4.0 final is not yet released and RC2 (released on 18 March) is still the latest.
Anyone got any ideas as to why 3.6.3 will not open on Vista Home Premium x32? Even 3.5.9 won't open either.
I'm sorry, but I do not see the logic in posting an alpha anywhere but the app's home site (Mozilla in this case). This is just asking for bad ratings and general problems.
If you are having a problem with extensions in an update, you need the nightly tester tools. It will allow you to force an older extension to work.

I hope they make it better. Lately I am having huge problems with this running just okay. Been using firefox 2 since that seems to be way better.
Big speedup over currently released Firefox, on the XP machine I tried this on. While the ACID 3 test isn't perfect yet, it's much closer.
Just think it would be nice to link to the Beta information
