    FireFox 6.0 rleased.

    O.k. Just a couple of months after the release of FF5 Mozilla have released FF6.0 and it looks like Mozilla have done the opposite of the Star Trek movies and made the best releases in the odd numbers as this for me is terrible. It still has the offline cache bug but has added much much more in terms of bugs and taken away in functionality. Do not download the update. It's awful.

    What's the most annoying is that every time they release a new version, some of your add-ons don't work anymore. At work I use f.ex. the password login add-on (profile password), which is not supported anymore now in v6. Very annoying.

    You do realize that for them to work it's a matter of changing a single key in about:config or downloading an add-on, right?
    All of the add-ons work perfectly even in the newest FF9 alpha (unless they're very old, from FF3 era for example), they simply need a single bump from the authors to make them notice a new version of FF came out.

    Apparently they want to be on at least FF7 by the end of the year. I think I'll stick to FF5 for the foreseeable future.

    Although we have discussed it in the FF5 thread, this whole FF version numbering is really starting to bug me. Already from 4 to 6 in less than 6 months is mad. And as discussed in the press, corporations can take a couple of years assessing a new product before actually rolling it out network wide across their businesses, so this is really messing things up for them. Bring back the point release numbering!

    If you haven't played a classic game in years, it's never too late to start!

    Guess it's time for you guys to switch to a different browser, because Mozilla is obviously trying to kill Firefox with their constant updates and those ridiculous number changes, don't they?
    Oh, you guys are silly :P

    BTW: I'm already on FF9 x64 and it's awesome

    We're not silly they turned a good product into a shit one. It used to fast and function packed now it's slow, lacking functions and can't render websites properly.

    Dunno about the slowness, I'm on a 6-year old computah and it is a killer.
    Lacking in functions? You know that some minor functions you never use are hidden if you turn the menu bar off?
