Okay, for those of you who haven't downloaded the new version of Firefox yet, I would strongly advise you not to! There are several reasons:


  • Not all the add-ons work with it.

  • It is *not* any faster than the previous version (in fact I've found it to be in some cases slower)

  • It keeps crashing - it has crashed on me twice already today, and I've only had the computer on for about 20 minutese

  • As far as I can see, it's not as user-friendly as the previous version.



Now, I will admit that the first and last are my opinions, but the middle two are fairly important, and are facts. Also, for some reason, it is refusing to finish loading Hotmail accounts - it just keeps going with the little circles. I can access things in Hotmail, but I don't know why it doesn't finish loading.

So, my advice is don't upgrade until all these bugs have been sorted out!

Also, I just did a quick search on the Mozilla site to try and find a way to contact them to complain (because every time Firefox crashes, I don't get a 'send error report' box. Instead I get a 'Windows will try and find a solution to the problem' and subsequently 'Windows has not found a solution, but will let you know when it does'.). The one time I actually *want* to send an error report and I can't!!

Okay, so once I got over my frustration and thanks to [livejournal.com profile] hellokimberly and [livejournal.com profile] loriel_eris for pointing links out to me, I've managed to find upgrades to Super Drag And Go (which is called Drag And Go). Hurray! (I just searched for the add-ons on the official site and one came up that was compatible.)

Sadly, Save Image in Folder hasn't been upgraded yet, but hopefully it will be, because that was very useful.
