Slightly OT but I can't get much satisfaction overall with any Mozilla based product at the moment on my Windows 7 x32, or SRWareIron, or Comodo Dragon. Sure they "work" but all too often freeze requiring dismembering from Task Manager and restarting. This is a real pain regarding Thunderbird as I'm unaware it is locked up until I do a manual check whereupon a deluge of emails then arrive on restarting. The same applies to Pale Moon and Comet Bird. This is partly a local issue (somehow. probably) but even so, judging by the amount of other forum posts around I appear to be not entirely alone.

The only two browsers (I've used) which work flawlessly 100% are IE9 and BlackHawk.

I have no such issues with anything Mozilla or Chrome based on Linux.

@ MC: that's odd. I'm also on Win 7 32 bit and no issues so far with Firefox or any other browser for that matter.

Guess you would have tried all the usual workarounds?

Safe mode, new profile etc...etc..

Mozilla Foundation announcement (rewritten now). "Mozilla is an independent non-profit organisation. We help the needy, not the greedy" Sorry MC, the latter was aimed at you.

Working good here, except for an issue. I don't know if its even an issue, but here goes.

I first upgraded Firefox by installing it over the top.

In this version, according to release notes, the forward button has been hidden. But, on upgrading, I could see the forward button. So, I thought it must be because I upgraded.

So, I then uninstalled Firefox, and installed it again. On the start after the fresh install, forward button was hidden, as it should be, according to the new change.

But, when I started to install my usual add-ons, the forward button is starting to show, like the previous versions.

Anyone else noticed about this, or facing such an issue?

Other than that, working fine.

MC, I think it should be a local issue, since Firefox based browsers, and Chrome based browsers, both are freezing up. Maybe some conflict with some other software?

Upgraded to Firefox 10 from within Firefox 9 by using the check for updates selection in the help menu. Upgrade went flawlessly and Firefox 10 is running as it should. No issues here.

XP SP3.
