Mozilla Firefox

La ora actuala, probabil as trece rapid la FF in defavoarea Opera dar cu mici conditii:
-cand dau back sa nu-mi faca refresh. Ador faptul ca Opera nu face refresh.
-lucrul cu taburi sa fie la fel de rapid si usor ca in Opera unde este o adevarata placere sa lucrezi cu ele, spre deosebine de FF si IE. Macar IE are un ceva pe care apesi sa-ti arate un nou tab. Dar niciunua nu i-am gasit pana acum (fara sa sap prea adanc ce-i drept), o optiune in care orice noua pagina sa mi-o deschida automat intr-un nou tab.
-managerul de downloaduri mi se pare inca din secolul trecut, undeva putin peste IE5.
-sa am optinea "Paste and Go" sau "Go tu URL". Te scuteste de clickuri si mai ales de a mai atinge tastatura. Foarte comod pentru lenesi.
Atunci de ce ai trece la FF, doar ca să ai de instalat 5 plugins ca să îl poți folosi minimal și încă 10 în versiuni mai mult sau mai puțin compatibile ca să poți lucra comod? Cum e să faci un update de browser care obligatoriu necesită încă vreo 5 pe lângă, din care unele nu sunt disponibile din start ci atunci când are timp dezvoltatorul de ele?
Pai tocmai am spus-o in stilul meu caracteristic, de ce FF nu este pentru mine, cel putin la ora actuala.
Am şi eu o problemă cu FX şi mă scoate din minţi:

"I have been running FX ever since version 1.5; it's my favorite browser and I got accustomed to it so much, I'm hooked. But tonight, it just went crazy.
When starting FX, it (usually) takes a few seconds to start and that's okay. But now, it started to load in about 1 minute, and during this time it uses up a CPU core's entire resources. I figured there might be an addon messing up, so I tried starting in Safe Mode. Same result. Okay, I completely uninstalled FX and reinstalled it. No good. Allright; deleted all profiles, addons, everything and installed fresh. No improvement; apparently takes LONGER to start.
Detailed sympthoms:
-process "firefox.exe" spawns in Process List;
-uses up 50% of a dual-core CPU
-takes (now) roughly 2 minutes to show
-while it stays in process list, memory usage SLOWLY climbs from 90000 KB to 20000 KB then drops again to 10 MB, runs around at 17 MB and finally, after 2 minutes, appears in Task Manager using up 23 MB."

(post-ul e în engleză în original, pus la ei pe site. No response whatsoever.)
war4peace, ceva ciudat se intampla. Versiunea 1.5 care o foloseam pana acum, o luase razna rau de tot. Am ajuns pana la stadiul la care functiona doar o singura data, exact dupa instalare, dupa care dadea eroare si nu pornea.

Am trecut si eu la FF3, customizat cat de mult se poate, si dupa 3-4 zile m-am si adaptat :smile:
