    Firefox just upgraded to 26.0

    Hey Y'all,

    I just had my FF upgraded to ver 26.0. Of course it messed up my toolbars and dropped my home page. Mozbackup to the rescue. A quick restore and I'm back in business. HTH

    No problems here either. This just proves that there's no such thing as a standard PC. They're all different. Perhaps Jobs was right - don't let people do their own thing on their computers!

    Though I haven't had any problems, I've been using Mozbackup for a while now - just in case!

    I've been a Firefox user for going on 7 years now. I'm starting to lean towards Chrome. It's so much faster and doesn't freeze up. But I still love my Firefox. How about all you people out there, what do you think?

    I suppose it depends on what you do. I've found FF to be the fastest browser in some circumstances.

    I've become a browser agnostic. I use IE 11 on my desktop, Chrome on my laptop, and Safari on my Ipad. I have Firefox loaded on my desktop and laptop but only use it to answer client questions. I no longer see any significant speed or stability issue differences between any of them. My advice is to use the browser with the look and you prefer.
