Used Chrome for a long time, became loyal to safari after Mountain Lion and just came back to FF because its really much faster and more slick

News flash!!! Mozilla marginally improves startup times, squashes a few bugs, calls it a major new version!

I can't see anything in "What's new" that would justify even a "dot dot" update (Major.Minor.Very more...

Best browser out there. Wish the tags would get grouped together with Mavericks tags. That would be a massive upgrade over the current closed tagging system.

This is my favorite browser by far. It is fast, efficient and friendly. It has the best bookmark manager of any browser. And the array of add-on's is endless.

When I go to some websites, Firefox then automatically jumps to a Yahoo search page. How can I stop this from happening?

If it goes away this is a place to start.

MBP, MacOS 10.6.8.

v31.0 has been released.

I always start up with a blank page but, guess what, my 'blank page', in v31.0 is now a Google search bar.

Mozilla have sold out.

I have just downloaded v 31.0 and I correct myself. The start up blank page is indeed a blank page, it is every new tab which is a Google search bar.

I am in England so I must have seen it before you. I did keep checking after seeing the updates to TenFourFox!

I can't get rid of the search bar in every new tab, though.

As release notes state "Add the search field to the new tab page" it's a feature not a bug.

But you are right - as Mozilla is almost entirely funded by Google, they won't bite the hand feeding them and obey. Nice move Google.

I do not care too much since I have set Firefox to use DuckDuckGo by default for the top address bar. Just don't use google search and be done.

You are right, I missed the, 'enhancement'.

I deliberately do not use Google but it must have migrated itself to the top of available search engines. Unfortunately, DuckDuckGo does not work every well in the UK, not unless I want to buy something from the US!

All search engines except one are now deleted but I am sure I am not the only one wondering why this, 'new feature', was deemed an upgrade.

Personally, I think Google is fundamentally evil, and I refuse to use any of their products. I am utterly disgusted that they exploited our initial confusion about their business model by angelically promising to operate with only the most respectable and noninvasive business practices then greedily proceeded to violently rape every one of our resulting expectations.

That we’ve allowed this to become the predominant Internet Age business code of conduct is our own shame.

Also, Android sucks ass.

Thank you, Mozilla! I'm a long-time user of Firefox. I love its Add-ons. After all the devastating reviews of FF29 I stayed with FF28 for a long time. Yesterday I upgraded to FF30 and I'm positively surprised. With very little effort (almost none) I could configure it to my needs. Just moving some icons. All works fine, all of my 30+ Add-ons continue to work. The user interface is modern and attractive. I don't miss FF28 a second! And best of all: FF30 is rock solid, no crashes (as many have reported).

To stop the constant crashing on FF 29 which continued with 30. I had to do a complete uninstall and reinstall. Which with Sync option enabled was not as difficult and time consuming as it could have been, otherwise. With no help from Mozilla, we'll never no what indeterminate Gremlin, caused such disruptive behavior. Nice, to have all working and stable, once again!

Version 30 is an improvement over 29.x, which was a nightmare. I haven't noticed any -critical- bugs and the hanging problem on shutdown seems gone. I try FF as my default browser once again. It has been a while.

And the new UI... it is not too bad.

Firefox versions 29 onward have been a disaster. There is a quitting problem (they won't) and I just discovered that I couldn't use one of my WordPress themes because page modules appeared empty (they work fine in Chrome). I tried reverting to Firefox 28 but there are constant warnings to upgrade.
