    Seems like the linux version downloaded from mozilla doesn't work. I don't see a linux version 19 beta. Gives "Couldn't load XRE functions" and terminates. Other people are having this problem too. Will try this Techspot's download and will notify you if it works, but I doubt it.
  3. I installed FF 18 and it seems faster on Ubuntu 12.10 and Win 7.
  4. I might actually check this out.
    I am currently on firefox 13, because 14 and 15 kept crashing on me.

    I tried Firefox 18 these last couple of days, but I didn't like its performance. Initially it seems faster than Chrome 23, but Firefox kept eating up memory, so after a few minutes or session, FF gets pretty darn sluggish. I don't like Chrome much, but it performs better on my laptop.

    Why does everyone keep saying that non-retina-optimised apps looks blurry? They look just fine and display as normal, as they do on non-retina displays.
