I just upgraded from 3.6 to the newest version, I think its 11. When i click on the X it doesn't give me the option to save the tabs I have open? How do I get this back?

Also doesnt give me the option in history options to allow site which haven't been visited in a ceertain time to be deleted. e.g. in firefox 3 i could set it so it would delete any site I hadn't visisted in the last 2 months from my history..

I've used Firefox for years, and it's great with very minimal problems if ever.

For some reason it even got YouTube to remove its logo with the site still running flawlessly, and in my opinion this is not a bad thing. I'm not sure how it happened so for anyone that wants to try it then I couldn't tell you how, lol.

It seems that Firebug (1.9.1) doesn't work with Aurora 14 :/ HTML and CSS tabs either doesn't show anything or, in case of HTML tab, shows only the root of the document but refuses to expand the tree or inspect individual HTML elements.

Firefox now acting such a prick that it wouldn't even let me close the process in Task Manager.

I'll try another fresh install of 12 and if it isn't any better I'll just roll back to 11.

Still stuck on 11a2, hate the new scrolling.

Anyone kow how to revert to the old smooth scrolling (pre 12)? And I'm not talking about max/min duration settings, but the stupid rubber banding they copied from iOS?

Oh and is there a way yet to get the favicons next to the location bar back?

Maybe you were not using smooth scrolling before? It's now on by default. You can disable it on Options/Preferences: http://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/...#w_general-tab

No option. You'll need an extension but I don't know any.

Nah, I'm currently using smooth scrolling. In one of the alphas they fucked it up even worse, some idiot dev decided to jack it up to 700ms ... Had to keep scrolling for almost a second before it would move at all. Love their dev process of one guy just doing whatever without no consideration or input at all. Just like with the new image view that fucks any image that uses transparency.

If you remember history, Firefox always saves your last session. Now the option is to "Restore Previous Session" (inside the History menu) when you open it again, instead of choosing to save it when you close.

As for the history time limit, it's now done based on the amount of pages instead of the amount of time: http://support.mozilla.org/en-US/que...#answer-172779

New Firefox design will offer uniform look across desktop and mobile



Mozilla recently combined its desktop and mobile design teams with the aim of unifying the Firefox user experience across form factors. A presentation slide deck published by Mozilla’s Madhava Enros offers some insight into the design process and shows how the effort to boost Firefox’s visual cohesion aligns with Mozilla’s Kilimanjaro initiative.

Mozilla is aiming for a "soft, friendly, and human" design that will "feel like Firefox" across all supported platforms and form factors. The challenge will be blending the browser’s distinctive visual style with the conventions of the underlying platforms. The slide presentation includes mockups that show how the new design language will translate to various environments, including Android, Metro, B2G, and the conventional desktop.

Some design elements will be shared across all of those environments. The presentation shows how the same distinctive curved shapes will be used to give Firefox uniform contours on different form factors.

They're planning on making Firefox look the same across all platforms, Mac included. But they are falling behind.

Ugh. Why do people do this? This is no better than using IE 6 on your XP machine. Every new update comes with a ton of security updates. I've also never had a addon compatibility issue that wasn't fixed with switching to a different addon that does the same thing and is actually updated.

I find it funny that people can bitch at Microsoft and IE6, claiming that the browser is shitty, full of bugs and security issues, and prevents Internet from moving forward (producing a version of web site that is suitable for IE6 is a nightmare, and many corporations require it). And yet there are still people who for some odd reason (like, that one add-on whose author abandoned it few years ago and hasn't been bothered to update to it ever since) decide to stay at some old-ass version of Firefox. They are probably unaware that they are becoming an equivalent of IE6 users . :/

Well, with the advent of HTML5, IE6 (7 and 8) are kinda fucked since they don't work well with it without JS. Hopefully fewer people care about it as the years go by.

Anyway, In-Content UI available on Nightly.

If you flip "browser.preferences.inContent" to true, it'll be the standard. If you let it on false, you can still access them through "about:preferences".

Work in progress, obviously.

If you don't want to wait for it to auto update Firefox 13 is available now for Windows, Mac, and Linux .

The images on the new tab page don't look great however, too zoomed out and you can't really see what's on the page they're previewing.

Learned something new today about Firefox from Reddit, pasting a URL (ctrl/cmd + v) in Firefox's download manager will let you download whatever you pasted. Works with everything, including webpages, images, the whole shebang.

Yeah I'm not sure why they brought it out of beta when it still looks poor like this, it seems it only keeps it if you visit recently.

It's on the FTP.

Fx 14 finally supports Lion full-screen mode. Although, they need to work on it a bit. It goes full screen and moves into its own space, but they do nothing to reduce the chrome. So, for the moment, there's plenty of wasted space in full-screen.

...Or you can just turn it back off under the Advanced/General tab in Options lol

I have no idea why they set that back to on by default.
