    I think the mozilla devs are driven by Microsoft's cup cakes

          LOL. Because yeah, ppapi support gives you... Well, it gives you... Well, i guess Flash uses it.

          FF20 also includes wmf codec support (for html5 mp3/h264 on windows). Although it's disabled behind a config for now, supposedly 21 will turn it on by default.

                Firefox died for me with release 18. It's so buggy that's unacceptable. Of course I reported everything, but it needs ages to be fixed while new bugs are introduced. I switched to chrome in the meantime. Sorry mozilla devs, but the new release cycle doesn't do any good. Also to mention issues as fixed in the changelog although it isn't also won't make it better (better image scaling quality)
                It's really all half-baked...

                  i do not experience any bugs - maybe it's your linux distribution which is broken?

                    - Support for starting private browsing in a new tab of an already existing web-browser session. Firefox for Android also now supports private browsing on a per-tab basis.
                    I would like to correct this sentence from "new tab" to a "new window", as in the firefox announcement page says:

                    Firefox includes a new enhancement to private browsing that allows you to open a new private browsing window without closing or changing your current browsing session.

                      I can crash the latest Iceweasel/Firefox from Experimental in Debian, every day. Not that I'm impressed with Debian maintenance that has slowly eroded the past 4 years, but I have even less respect for the XUL world of Firefox.

                        I listed some of them here https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic....28619#p1228619 . It's not my distros fault, it's reproducible on Windows even.

                          microsoft, sadely, stopped giving cakes to mozilla, due to rapid release.
                          mozilla still gives cakes to ie.
                          i love this tradition.

                            that's "funny" but none of these issues seems to trigger for me. i'm using arch as well. i'm not saying those issues don't happen, but it might be a minority of the cases.
                            i have issues with chromes and firefox alike, from time to time - cuz yeah, chrome is also a great browser, but actually FAR from fault free. You'll figure out as you use it.

                              Firefox ftw

                              The memory used by Chrome/ium is really too much (with several tabs open it can be 4x the ram taken by firefox), so it will never be an option for me.
                              Chromium used to open very fast in the initial releases, but now is a PIG!

                              Firefox is becoming better,faster and more efficient from release to release... can't wait for ionmonkey!
