Firefox 8 To Stop Unauthorized Add-ons In Their Tracks

Quote:
If's there's one thing we hate, it's Brussels sprouts. If there's two things we hate, it's Brussels sprouts and sneaky programs that automatically install add-ons into our Internet browsers. Turns out we're not the only ones. Those pesky unapproved add-ons have been a thorn in the side of Mozilla, who shoulders the blame when the invaders cause crashes and browser lagging. When Firefox 8 rolls around, unauthorized add-ons will be a thing of the past: the browser won't allow installations without the express permission of users.

used to use Firefox. Don't anymore because of the updates installing tool-bars and other utilities without asking onto the browser thus slowing it down.
Other then that Firefox is great ..

Yeah same here, Add-ons everytime there's an update. very frustrating
You have to go through the browser every-time there's an update and remove
all that stuff. Plus until they fix some of the code? You can't edit/use certain
websites through the newer version's of Firefox.
Some of the html heavy graphic websites go crazy when loaded and you still
can't copy/paste text right with firefox yet..
copy/paste buffer still has a problem on certain websites....

with chrome i noticed it has issues with lots of websites i used, like when there's a page you have to agree to in order to get to the next page. Plus chrome ad blockers don't block youtube ads, because all the youtube ads are from adsense. If you clear all your history,cache, etc and then open facebook in chrome and firefox, i bet you firefox will load it faster. Also when you click on a click on firefox, you can still drab another link into the tab bar to also open it, but in chrome as soon as you click on it link the page is basically unusable.
What do you mean "You can't edit/use certain websites through the newer version's of Firefox."? Firefox works much better with every website i use, plus chrome has many many small and large issues another example is this video i found: shrink - YouTube
