Resigned response: “I’ll get used to it”

Kathleen Atkins

After downloading Firefox 34.0.0, Lounge member ldb wondered whether the browser’s search engine might be broken.

Posting in the Third-Party Browsers forum, he described the differences between his new and old versions of Firefox.

With a bit of help from fellow Lounge members, he gradually understood that the search engine wasn’t broken — it’s just different, as new versions frequently are.
