I have to confess that I only noticed 29 had changed because people were complaining about it. But I still continue to use it. Perhaps, as I don't have many add ons, I don't seem to get anything broken.
I suppose that Mozilla (a bit like MS and probably the other browsers) can't test every change with every add on, and some will therefore break. It probably hasn't helped that they seem to have a new (major) version every five minutes or so. When in the past, it was just Vx, Vx.1, Vx.2 etc. I know that stopped some add ons working as they had to be version dependent, and they were caught out by the new numbering system. Is that still the case I wonder?
I see that Opera is up to 12.17 and Chrome is 35.0.1916.114 m. Who knows what any of the others are! IE seems almost pedestrian at version 11:D
You are probably right. I guess one thing that makes it easier for me is that I am not a big add-ons fan. I have a minimum set of add-ons and mostly on Chrome, since I only use the other two for testing, so I don't usually have issues with add-ons. Chrome does break some functionality, some times, when the upgrades occur. I throw a tweet or two at the Chrome twitter account in protest, but they really don't care. I hope it doesn't get to the point where I need to dump Chrome, but in a way that wouldn't be too bad, as I really dislike Google as a company and use their products as little as I can (except for Chrome, but I have even changed to Bing as the main search engine).

The current version of Opera is 21. Opera 12 is the old version, before Opera decided it wanted to be Chrome. Many people, myself included, didn't like that decision and stayed with Opera 12.16. Interestingly, Opera released an update--12.17--for the old version long after the current version Chromified. Opera 12.17 is the most recent update for the old version.

I couldn't agree more, if I wanted Chrome, I'd be using it. And I don't because I don't like nor trust Google - they are the Homeland Security of the Internet, ever more intrusive and nosy. Pale Moon works perfectly. Like FF used to. And now they are up to version 30. I use FF as one backup, and Opera as another, neither often. And I used to live on FF. So many angry users, I can't imagine why they wanted to drop market share so badly, but that is what they've done.

Using FF 29 as secondary browser only, (less and less).
is faster & more stable than my FF29...
btw: ALL my FF extensions
