Windows 7: New Firefox earns full WebRTC

I use Aurora which is the precursor to Firefox builds. Build 23a2 is quite good but I can't back the statement about newer versions always being better. I support using the right version for the task. I still use 3.6.28 about 50% of the time as newer versions no longer perform some functions I require or there aren't plugins/ad-ons to restore lost functionality.

Regards,
GEWB

Aurora 23a2 is now Firefox23 Beta 1. I can back that statement up with good authority. I have been using and testing Firefox from day one when it Was call Phoenix. Try Fx 24 and see how much faster it is. I gues that you also believe that Vista is Better than Win 7? Maybe Win ME as well??

Um, I still have Phoenix 0.9.

As to " I gues [sp] that you also believe that Vista is Better than Win 7? Maybe Win ME as well?" - what ever gave you that idea?

Index of /pub/mozilla.org/firefox

Try Fx23 Beta 1 under Candidates. I don't even bother to go to mozillazine anymore. There are 3 or 4 users there that think they own Firefox and that forum. It is not good for Firefox. If your new at it they will laugh at you.

Thanks Gary. I still have the problem though with dragging my tutorial links from Bookmarks menu into posts, having them convert from their title to the raw URL until the post is posted when they will show the original tutorial title which often is not what I want it named.

However, its so much snappier I may sacrifice that customization just to enjoy the latest Firefox. I have never sacrificed snappier for anything before no matter how habitual. It's just that I like to work with the tutorial titles as I drag them into posts, and doing this saves a lot of time daily.

Edit: Creating a link in a post with the link maker takes time while dragging a bookmark from drop-down takes none. The problem is that after version 12 it turns the dragged URL to a URL and it stays that way in most posts. I need it to drag and remain as its titled so I can edit the title as needed (or not) but dragging a URL is too clumsy and loses thread continuity. That's all. Hope I explained it better this time.
sorry just noticed your edit. i dont usually read back through posts.

i knew what you meant about it changing the titles and why you were sticking with 12.
no need to re explain
using the hyper link means you can drop it into a title you have created, another way but probably just as ineficient would be to create a list of urls ,
create a forum template,
create them with the titles you want using the hyperlink and so when you want your links with the correct names to drag then you just need an extra tab open...

open a forum page then in the advanced editor click post templates,
that will show all the links you created just how you want them ,
you can highlight and drag one into the tab/thread your working and drop it into the post editor.
that template would act as your forum bookmarks dropdown..
bit of a faff around at first but i reckon you would soon have it working to your advantage.
