    Phoronix: Firefox 25 Now Shipping With Minor Enhancements

    One month after the release of Firefox 24, Mozilla Firefox 25 is now available via FTP servers globally and will be officially announced on Tuesday. There are a few small but notable changes for the Firefox 25 web-browser update...

      I think you've jumped the gun a little... Firefox is currently reporting no updates, on 24...

        I wish they implemented global Flash click-to-play, instead of having to enable it by site...

          It won't until its officially announced. It always gets pushed to FTP a day or so before release, and Michael does always make a note when it officially hits the FTP server.

          The 25.0 directory was pushed to the FTP monday, and Tuesday is listed as the official release date for 25. So, so far so good.

            Australlis isn't even in Nightly version 27. I'm pretty sure that on this next version-shift (to Nightly 28) it will appear, given that the http://getaustralis.com/ no longer gives downloads to the Nightly UX builds and instead says "will be landing in Nightly soon"

            So don't expect Australis until at least Firefox 28. I can't wait for it, as I personally love the look over what is there currently and I don't have a million add-ons. Not to mention that people seem to be forgetting the interface is rendered by Gecko as well by using XUL. I'm pretty sure Australis doesn't just look different, but performs better interface-side as well

              Don't want to start a flame war, but is this really how Firefox will look like (a Chrome clone)?

                My only problem with this is that by not resetting the session on restarting Firefox, it'll make the job of Helpdesks that much harder.

                  Nothing about the notification "problem" in Linux nor GST 1.0 support.

                    No Win64 builds

                    BTW anyone remember the rationale for not producing 64bit builds for Windows?
                    Something to do with their continuing support for XP beyond April'14?

                      It is six weeks. And it has been six weeks since Firefox 6 (2011)

                      They have. It will come with Firefox 26. It is the reason why I had to install flashblock. It is just stupid to have flash automatically start. Makes me think they have forgotten that it is a tabbed browser.

                      Do you have an argument why you think it is bad?

                      How? If the user can't close tabs even tech support can't help.

                        To be fair, that's just making all Mozilla applications look consistent (Thunderbird already looks like that, and it's not even a web browser). Now why they chose Chrome looks for Thunderbird is another matter...

                        That's good to know. I know it was planned, but I didn't know it was going to be implemented that soon.

                          Personally, I've tried Chrome sometime last year, but went back to Firefox because I am used to it. I was actually surprised myself that it made such a difference. Now with FF copying Chrome I'll have to adapt anyway. But then there is no real reason to go with FF (can just use Chrome if I want something like Chrome).

                            Have you used it yet? It is not just a new theme. It is a new interface that hasn't really changed since Firefox 4. Maybe sometime in the future Chrome will grow up and get the features Firefox has but until then they just have cheap knockoffs.

                              Sorry, can't parse. What are you talking about?
