Upgraded to 18.02 and had to roll back to 18.01 as unstable. No new programs since 18.0 so no incompatibles. Just popped in to see if anyone else had a problem. Forget actualities in detail as very busy lately and just caught up a bit. Been settled since so will skip this version. And wait it out for a while.

Boris, how on earth do we read the poster you quoted? If it was Pat - we all know that being in Japan he stands on his head to sign, but your quote?

I just clicked on Quote - to reply directly to Pat's post and that is what it produced :) I have absolutely no idea why it appeared like that.

The latest FF is rubbish for one of my machines. Any download above about 1MB and the thing goes mad - CPU up to 100% and hangs. Other machines OK.

And maybe I too have a touchy version of Windows XP Home SP3 2006 because it certainly plays up for no reason also. Is yours same version of windows maybe?

I had marked it for no to updates as too fast changes for vendors to catch up so some add ons etc not compatible - didn't change it but did update to 117 then 18.01/

Have now it back to "no I will decide" and will have to check when I do update which is usually a few versions behind as then no problems. Not worried about safety as do not go where they hang around to get you or bank online - use telephone instead and in 17 years only ever had a virus when it came back from technician fixing it :ranting:

Has to be add ons and it disables them if they are not updated too. Never had any problems prior when FF updated slowly.

Firefox 19 comes with a new PDF viewer add-on called PDF.js; it is absolutely terrible! The first PDF I tried to display (http://helpx.adobe.c...r_reference.pdf) looks like this


To fix this and use your standard PDF viewer plugin: Tools | Options | tab Applications

change (Content type: Portable Document Format)




Now your PDF document should display correctly in Adobe Reader

Is it just me or does Firefox 29 now look the same as Chrome ?

It is certainly very different!

I have just found a method to relocate the tabs below the address bar (my preferred option) - I installed the Classic Theme Restorer add-on. ;)

Does that support Firefox 29?


As I see it you're OK with 29 it's just notification that they're no longer supporting the 64 bit version of 26 so any security issues with it will remain unpatched.

I would agree with your opinion Belatucadrus.
