Windows 7: Firefox Keeping Rapid Release, But Adding Silent Update Option

I, too, am becoming annoyed at the frequent Firefox updates.

But this should prove to be an even bigger nuisance in business environments. Business apps need to be tested and certified for use with particular browsers. A corporate IT team wouldn't want to re-test and re-certify every time Mozilla comes up with some new jingle-jangle.

So, enough already! I've been holding off Chrome for a long time. But maybe it's time to switch? Or maybe Mozilla can just get their act together and quit with the micro-updates?

I hope you realize these micro updates are influenced by Google Chrome. Chrome is downloading and updating almost every single day, silently behind the scenes. You say you do not want this so why run to the one application that started it all?

How do people know whether a particular update is bugged or not? I've been using Firefox and updates immediately to what is available yet never did I encounter bugs from any of those. Btw, I'm mostly into browsing, streaming, and downloading on the internet. .

I've been following this thread and just can't understand that the big deal is. OK, so every few weeks my Firefox tells me an update is ready to be applied and if I want to restart it now or later. Eventually I close FF and the next time I open it again, it runs the update and after a few moments it's right back.

I don't know - to me this is how every update should be, quick and painless. What's the big issue? Not being sarcastic or opinionated here, I'm really wondering what it is.

It's the frequent updates. Nothing is solid and leveled every few weeks a new update. I don't care if it's automatic, but what if people don't want to automatically update and they just want it reliable ? Convince is doing more bad then good and yet most of society is all about it, yet I know it will drag us to hell no matter what it is.

FF has been "solid and leveled" for me ever since 3.5 was the current version. And it hardly matters to me whether the next update carries a 3.5.0.1.17.294 number or a 15.0 number with it, that's just pure semantics. And pretty much every update addresses security holes, and that's a darned good thing... *shrugs*

Firefox 7.0.1 also needs some improvements with add-ons compatibility.
