Not to mention implementing stupid stuff, like:
  • Removing the protocol info from the Address bar.
  • Removing the disable "Tabs on top" option from the context menu.
You have to hack the config file to get those back.

When are they going to fix the "Bookmark Manager" and "Session Manager"?

In my experience, Firefox operating problems seem to be confined to the Windows versions.
Firefox never misbehaves when I'm running it in Ubuntu 10.04.

Agreed.
At least you can still customise Firefox (unlike other browsers).

Internet browsing is awful without NoScript.

It'll give you the FF configuration; set the filter to "google" and see the number of results close 20. Set the filter to "chrome" and result is around 40 matches.

Pretty nice Google; why would you bother with scripts for tracking the browser activities when you can use the browsers, such as Chrome and Firefox to do the same?
It must depend on what you have installed in FF or Windows.

I don't use Gmail or other Google programs.

I've got ~30 config entries containing "Google".
About 50% of those are related to NoScript.

The word "Chrome" is used to refer to FF UI settings.

Works both ways (hopefully). I'm pretty sure that whenever someone makes an extension/addon that ties up Firefox Health Report, it will be THE most downloaded extension/addon evah.
