I hate that. Always gotta wait a few months before they enable alot of the extensions. It's pretty silly too because most of the time it's not any real compatibility issues they just have to "turn on" that version.

Based on two hours of use and some quick comparisons between 3.0, 3.5, and Chrome, 3.5 is much faster than 3, and actually ranks up there with Chrome*. FF 3 didn't seem to handle Facebook very well, but it's incredibly fast in 3.5. Take it FWIW over 2 hours, and I haven't had more than 5 or 6 tabs open at the same time, but I love it so far... and I've been watching memory usage, too, and it hasn't freaked out yet.

*This is based on the Unix build of FF 3 & 3.5 using Ubuntu; and Chromium, which is the unofficial Unix build of Chrome.

There seems to be a workaround for it, but after I made the changes, the address bar wouldn't hold any values (it worked, but it's blank when the home tabs load, etc.). I switched back, because the only thing I'm really missing is Duplicate Tab... and you're probably running Windows, so it might work for you without any strange side effects....

Here's the official "new stuff" list:


Firefox 3.5 is based on the Gecko 1.9.1 rendering platform, which has been under development for the past year. Firefox 3.5 offers many changes over the previous version, supporting new web technologies, improving performance and ease of use. Some of the notable features are:

* Available in more than 70 languages. (Get your local version!)
* Support for the HTML5 video and audio elements including native support for Ogg Theora encoded video and Vorbis encoded audio. (Try it here!)
* Improved tools for controlling your private data, including a Private Browsing Mode.
* Better web application performance using the new TraceMonkey JavaScript engine.
* The ability to share your location with websites using Location Aware Browsing. (Try it here!)
* Support for native JSON, and web worker threads.
* Improvements to the Gecko layout engine, including speculative parsing for faster content rendering.
* Support for new web technologies such as: downloadable fonts, CSS media queries, new transformations and properties, JavaScript query selectors, HTML5 local storage and offline application storage, canvas text, ICC profiles, and SVG transforms.

Developers can find out about all the changes and new features at the Mozilla Developer Center.

The geo location thing is downright creepy.

I used to snag these the day they came out but since I moved to OSX I've found myself always coming back to Safari. It doesn't have the extensions that FF has but for some reason FF just seemed bigger, slower and bloated.

The good thing is the browser race is intense and they're leaving MS behind. Which is nothing but good.

I wonder if this will win me back.

I particularly love this one:

Firefox and Chrome have more support for emerging standards like HTML5 and CSS3, but Internet Explorer 8 invested heavily in having world-class, consistent support for the entire CSS2.1 specification.

Translation: Firefox and Chrome support Blu-Ray but we've invested heavily in having world-class, consistent support for the entire VHS specification.


And this one:
Internet Explorer 8 is more compatible with more sites on the Internet than any other browser.

Uh, yeah, because you've refused to mold your browsers to support 100% standards and so people have to hack things to work with your browser.

I'm not 100% sure, but I think they keep their betas and full versions separate when it comes to upgrades, so you'll probably have to manually do it.

Upgraded this morning, and so far, so good. Only one addon was incompatible, but easily found a substitute for the time being. MUCH faster than FF3, but not quite as fast as Chrome.

Once Chrome gets a good extension library, FF could be in trouble. Extensions are the only thing keeping me using FF full time for now. Though, I did find a good ad blocker for Chrome today - if I can find a good way to implement mouse gestures, Chrome will become a lot more attractive.

Give Chrome a try then. No harm there. It's not like it replaces anything currently on your machine. Download it and run it for a week or so, and if you don't like it, uninstall it and go on about your business...

It is pretty damn fast...

If you're just upgrading Firefox, all your bookmarks will be transferred seamlessly.

Chrome will be similar to FF in terms of installation. It'll give you the option of importing your bookmarks from FF if you'd like.

Overall, you'll probably find that Chrome is the fastest of the browsers out there, but it's pretty lacking when it comes to extensions. If you're just looking for a nice, clean internet experience though, you can't beat it.

I use AdBlock... don't really mind ads, except pages like kansascity.com and a few others that are 50%+ ads. I use FlashBlock, which doubles as an ad blocker... it also helps with sites like ESPN that think it's cool to auto-start video. Assholes. FfvB is needed for message boards... nice ignore threads/ignore user functions.

I love Googlepedia. It makes use of the right side of a Google search by automatically displaying the most relevant page in Wikipedia.

I also use Read it Later quite a bit, but I'm sure that one isn't as popular... It's basically an easy interface for a bookmark folder... it adds a check icon to the right of the address bar, and when you check it, it saves it to your list... then there's another icon on the same line that you can click to go through your list. The cool thing is that the list is saved online, so you can access it from your phone or other computers. I like to save news articles and stuff as they come up in Twitter or RSS, and read them all at once... but I'm kinda a nerd like that. :)

You'll notice it most on Java heavy pages. Gmail loads MUCH faster than it used to for me. Facebook seems a bit faster too.

Yep... FB was sometimes unusable for me. I'd start typing a message and individual letters would show up with a 5 or 10 second lag. 3.5 fixes that problem and makes FB and other sites just as fast as Chrome. PBJ

I'm getting some sort of issue on Chiefsplanet now. It won't let me post under the full-featured editing profile. I have to use "simple text box" or "extra formatting controls."


It's a sign.

ok, I finally downloaded firefox, how can I watch youtube video's? it says I need to install adobe flashplayer, I click that and save it. then it pops up a download thing, I double click on the adobeflashplayer to try and download it and all it says is that I need to close firefox, I did that, it still says it. can't watch youtube videos. I really don't want to have to switch back and forth between this and IE. Can someone help me out>?

ok, this mozilla thing is pissing me off. Now I can't log into half the sites that I use. It says "you have timed out, please log in again" on some of the sites that I use, and I log in again and just says the same thing. Pitty, because it seemed to be a lot faster than IE

ya fuck this mozilla, I can log into these sites when I run IE. Just can't when I use Mozilla, that makes absolutely no sense to me.

I had issues when I first installed it. Then, I uninstalled it and re-installed it "clean" and since then I've had no serious issues. I like it!

I started using Chrome again. It absolutely tears through pages like they were nothing. I can even go to myspace and browse peoples profiles and there is no lag like there is with IE and Firefox.

It uses a separate history file now but still uses Windows internet connection settings, which I find annoying.

Ok so n00b here. If I d/l Firefox 3.5 will it keep all my bookmarks?

Only if you sacrifice an old ball track mouse to the Firefox gods. I stepped on mine and yelled "all hail ye' firefox" and bamm, bookmarks carried over.

Stole it from the inventory closet at work.

KcChiefsman,
I was having the same exact issues. I was about to give up on FF. It wouldn't even open. I just surfed on IE for awhile and before I knew it, FF was up and running. Oh, and if you are having problems logging into sites, it's probably because you were using a different browser. You will have to enter your passwords again and have cookies turned on. After that, you shouldn't have any problems on future site visits.

For what it's worth, I think I found the issue that was causing pages to pause before loading was complete. The google image under the "search" pulldown was being linked from imageshack rather than hosted on our server, and that imageshack server has been responding very slowly. I moved the image to our server, and I think it's better now. Let me know if not.

Download and install this version of Flash Player: http://www.filehippo.com/download_flashplayer_firefox/download/ad00b872f90689d7324cc341b740a9fd/

I took one of the suggestions in that thread on mozilla's forums about doing a disk cleanup. FF seems to be loading fine now. Hopefully, that took care of the issue for good.

Well, seems Mozilla Firefox is still screwed up. Rather than going back to version 3.11 or 3.2(or .02?), I decided to give Chrome a try. Seems pretty good so far.

Chrome.....uses Windows internet connection settings, which I find annoying.

I have to ask out of curiosity. Why does that matter?

Agreed that using the system settings is annoying. I discovered the other day that you can override the proxy settings by adding "--proxy-server=<proxy>" to your Chrome shortcut...

This browser really stinks. I may have to go back to a previous version. I don't care for chrome at all.

I haven't personally had any issues, but for those who are, you can get the old version here:

No problems so far with 3.5

The really odd thing was my speed test results were 1/3 slower to than normal when using 3.5 (1.0). As soon I downgraded my speed went back up to normal (1.5).
