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 38.0.1 (May 17, 2015)
I have been a devoted Firefox supporter over the years, but it has gotten so bad lately that I can't even stand to use it anymore. I don't know what their problem is, but its so laggy with every update the past year. I have a high end desktop computer.
Today I installed Chrome which I haven't installed in years. Its so much smoother and actually has nicer addons. Plus it has built in PDF printing which is a huge plus, as all the addons for Firefox never seem to print the pdf out correctly.
Reviewing 37.0.2 (May 4, 2015)
v36 and 37 are very unstable, rendering is getting worst with every new version, also memory and cpu usage are very high in comparison with previous versions.
Reviewing 37.0 (Mar 31, 2015)
Performance seems to have slipped a tiny bit. I think this is partly due to the EME work not being fully baked and some other GFX related work as well. We'll get an even faster SQLite in 38 so hoping they fix the performance drop in that version. Working well for me on older hardware.
Reviewing 36.0.3 (Mar 22, 2015)
36.0.4 is out (0.four)
Security fixes for issues disclosed at HP Zero Day Initiative's Pwn2Own contest (like 36.0.3 but improved, I hope)
Still my default browser, will be I guess as long as I will be able to remove/disable all new extra gadgets.
Reviewing 36.0.3 (Mar 21, 2015)
36.0.3 is out. don't know what happened to 36.0.2
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
