There have been no updates for the past few days because I’ve been wrestling with my new browser and I’m extremely frustrated.
As “Papa Bear”, Bill O’Reilly might say if he were in my shoes, “F**king thing sucks! WE’LL DO IT LIVE!”
I’m frustrated, not just because I’ve been a loyal Firefox fan and supporter for a long time but also because I bought into the hype and downloaded the new version to help Mozilla set a new world record.
I just can’t believe an organization that has put out such high quality software in the past can jump the shark this badly. How many months was this in beta again? how many release candidates did we go through?
Here are the problems I’m having:
- pages won’t load!
- when they do, CSS is randomly missing
- if they do render, pages are very slow (my cursor stutters rather than glides across the page)
- the “awsome bar” is about as useful and interesting as Jar Jar Binks
- too many add-ons are not compatible
I headed over to the support forums and this is the page Firefox 3 presented me with (I kid you not):
And here is what google analytics looks like for me (click to enlarge):
I tried erasing the cache, cookies, etc. then restarting Firefox but no matter what I do, that is what Google Analytics looks like. I’ve heard from others that they can’t see Google Maps and others that MySpace (one of the most popular sites on the web) doesn’t render correctly.
Anyone else out there have problems with Firefox 3 or is it just me?
Oh and in case you’re wondering, I’m typing this from Opera (9.50).
