Well that is odd my linux laptop had in its updates an update to FireFox a couple of days ago.
Just auto-updated to 29.0.1
update didnt reslove the firefox from not not shutting down correctly that alot people complain about
I'm also getting the problem where Firefox doesn't close properly.
Even on a new profile?
Weird indeed... I also notice after 29.0 release more FF users are complaining about same Firefox not closing properly problems like yours.
I`m using FF 29.0 or 29.0.1 on 15+ rigs, mostly on Win7 x64 Ult/Pro SP1 and few rigs with WinXP Pro x86 SP3 and still not a single problem with FF...
Almost all of my rigs with FF 29.0/29.0.1 are using updater versions of these Add-Ons:
I've actually had that a fair few times over the life of firefox. Though honestly no idea what causes it to happen (at some point I tried migrating to chrome only to find it not to my liking).
All I could really say is uninstall it, and delete all the left over files from it and try again.
And give a go of a virtual machine and see if it does it again in that.
...and this is why I'm sticking to Pale Moon.
It's a bit of shame, though...because Firefox on Android is actually getting better on every new releases.
The latest update made it to load add-ons faster when starting up the app.
I've noticed that FF 29.0.1 starts a bit faster than 28.0 or 29.0. On all of my office rigs (mostly Dual-Cores from 2GHz to 2.5GHz, 2GB RAM, HDD...) FF 29.0.1 (+ some 10 Add-Ons) with WinXP x86 Pro SP3 starts from 1 to 1.5sec faster than FF 29/28. I'm 100% sure it's not a placebo, Mozilla changed something about FF startup for sure...
This information is not a tip.
This information is not an optimization.
This information is about a Hidden Easter Egg in Mozilla Firefox v29 or greater.
I little bit of fun with the newest version of Firefox.
I just noticed it too, noticeably quicker than Palemoon 24.5. The latter is based on older Firefox ESR code though. Still, all improvements in speed and responsiveness are welcome
Mozilla slammed over Firefox DRM scheme
I don't think they had a choice in the matter. Those streaming services aren't even available here so I don't care what they do as long as any crap DRM is not loaded with the browser unless called for. That or back to Palemoon.
I agree they have 0 choice in reality, they either implement it or become the only the only browser that can't play these video services.
I'm glad they are making it a option to the user though.
I don't watch any DRM services, BBC iplayer works fine (or did the last time I watched anything)
I just found out about this add on through a Cnet feature. What do you guys think of it? It seems to be similar to Ghostery but w/o the suspect business practices and based on ABP code. I barely seem to be encountering trackers thanks to Easy Privacy but it's nice to have around I guess.
That made it on to frontpage news while back it it closed for some reason or other, Personal I still wating for FF to fix the damn Firefox has not closed error, related to firefox Clear on exit option.
RAther annoying happening frequently ever since 29
IF that happens i will move to cyberfox or waterfox they both would removed such drm stuff only with the other stuff they already remove.
Or altest one can hope, but seriously browsers are gona start having DRM **** in it that stuff dont work half the time and all it does it windup pissing of the normal users. people that hate DRM have and always will find ways to remove/around it.
FF 30.0 Final Stable released
First post updated with FF30.0 Final Stable download link. ATM FF30.0 still is not available via autoupdate.
Thanks, just checked, and its now available through auto-update
That site makes my brain think its moving, like one of those optical illusion images
Bottom pattern bar looks like its growing when you look at the firefox install logo
