    Can't see the purpose for the 3D page inspector.

    I like the addition of the addon sync. I have loved the bookmark sync, since between different computers and OS's I have FF installed 4 times. Hopefully the addon sync works as well across different versions of windows and linux.
    I'm going to have to check out the new style editor and page inspector. Boss is talking about re-designing 2 of our websites.
  4. i wish that they release at least two version, Normal & Lite or Normal & Developers, firefox it's getting hevier by release and pretty anoying.

    And what with the frenzy numerycal advance? this should be like.....version 8

    I wonder if the Internet Explorer team have given up on the celebratory cakes.

    Stopped using FireFox since last week. It suddenly started crashing on start-up, and no re-installation could help. Weird thing, but I couldn't find a fix for it. Now have to use Chrome instead...

    As someone who pretends to occasionally design web sites, I think the 3D page inspector is great.

    It's a rather novel approach to identifying page elements. I feel like this could be really useful while trying visualize the underpinnings of designs and quickly isolate elements of interest.

    I won't be switching to Firefox until they fix the tabs though. The tearing and dragging feels so unnatural in Firefox compared to every other browser. I used to not really care, but I think Chrome has spoiled me.

    For web developers, Firefox remains the only browser good enough to work with. (nobody is perfect)
    If you just want to use the email, read a few news articles or watch youtube then you can stick to Chrome, but for me Firefox remains the go to browser.

    It's not a bad idea, but you should know that firefox actually got faster with each version.
    I have all browsers installed (except safari) because i need to test my websites with them and i can clearly say that FF improved the most in the past year or so.

    I'll probably download it... not really worried about resources. I love chrome but firefox remains my browser of choice, for now.
  16. You have to uninstall it from add/remove or programs and features, depending what OS, then do a reg edit to remove all the remnants of it from the registry. Reboot, reinstall, and you should be ok. If its not you may want to consider a thorough cleaning of your system, there may be something malicious in there.
