Windows 7: Firefox 16.0

The issue I have with Firefox is it is laggy for me when scrolling and watching videos.

Read the SF News before updating if you haven't already updated (like me).

Mozilla 'temporarily' pulls Firefox 16 to address security flaw

I forget what happened last time I updated. When you are doing the install does it give you the option to skip the AddOns compatibility check? Seems like it always springs it on me. Then I have to mess around fixing stuff that I know works.

Can't answer your question.

I click on "Help"> "About FF"> small window comes up and tells me: You are currently on the release update channel.

It just automatically doe's the update, and have to click on restart FF.

Yeah, I did that on 14.01. It wanted to install 15. Then I told it not to update. Next time I ran it something pops up and says "you know you really ought to update... yadda yadda." What a nag!! Jeez! Plus, unlike the old style updater, it's not obvious what version it wants to stick on. It's like they're trying to fool you into going for it. Yeah, there's an update. But we're not gonna' tell you the number because now the numbers don't mean anything anyway. Just stick it on there!

Some improvements are negative.

For a long time I didn't update Thunderbird except for fixes in the same major version. But finally they have some stuff built in that I used AddOns for. Like showing only unread with a button.. no need for AutoCopy etc.. So I update some version way higher. Cool I don't need AutoCopy. But now when I click on another news server, it sits for 3 or 4 seconds before the indicator moves to the other server. It's like it's thinking it over. The old 2.x reacted instantly. Maybe I'll look into putting it back. I really don't need multiple tabs to read my mail.

Yes, I agree. Feel like there is no choice but to go ahead and let it fly in fear of security risk's.

Maybe on the Mozilla site it explains more about the updates, haven't tried it tho.

I found I didn't delete 2.x. I put Thunderbird 14 in another folder. So all I had to do was uninstall and put (un)read button back in. I feel better now.
