Verizon, as per corporate policy to enforce usage of only the latest version of various software, blindly forced Firefox 3.0 to be unapproved and require upgrading to 3.5. This is enforced with a software management system that distributes patches and whatnot. Firefox 3.0 has been stable for me and I kept it updated to the latest 3.0 updates as they became available. Well, since the software management system was instructed to require the upgrade to 3.5, it informed me that if I didn't upgrade within 5 days, Firefox would be uninstalled.

I didn't want to upgrade because of all of the problems I heard people were having. FF 3.0 was stable, I saw no reason to upgrade, other than the threat of uninstall. So I reluctantly upgraded.

Today FF 3.5 crashed 5 or 6 times, all before lunch. Before upgrading I never had a crash from FF.

I was a fan of Chrome when I briefly used it, but since it wasn't available for Linux, and I occasionally use Linux, I wanted a more unified browsing experience between the two environments and stuck with FF.

Chrome didn't get removed when I installed it and ran the software management update so, at least for work, I'm sticking with Chrome. Thanks, Firefox, for giving me the reason to finally just move to Chrome.

My Firefox is stable on my work computer (Win2000) and laptop(XP Professional). On my home computer (Vista Home Premium) it crashes constantly.

Vista is not approved at work, so this is Firefox 3.5 on Windows XP.

I did the dam update..... And I'm paying the dam prize for it, now I get all these dam pop ups .....
And I can't figure out how to block them out......... They're driving me crazy......

So if someone has an idea or two on what I can do to sort this dam mess up, would really make my day.

I've been using Chrome since the day it was released. I love it. I love Google. I'm a Google whore.








Wait, wut
