I was simply mentioning the search providers FF comes with now seeing Bing included. The personal choice of which provider to use has always been upto the end user anyways even if you have to drag a bookmark onto the personal bar.

To clear the history in 4.0 you simply go the View item on the menu bar and click the show all history option to delete items in the popup that appears. It can become cluttersome over an extended period of time however if you forget to clean them out every so often.

Mozilla’s Robert Sayre published a draft of the new rapid release process for Firefox, Which the open source browser vendor wants to embark on after shipping version 4.0 next week.

Mozilla has yet to embrace a new development process for Firefox fully, and that changes to the current draft can still be introduced.

Does anyone know why Mozilla seems to have stopped supporting the 64 bit version of Minefield 4.2a1pre lately? No updates for several days now, but all other formats are receiving daily updates.

No idea, but it isn't the first time the the 64 bit Windows version has gone a few days without an update compared to the rest of the versions.

I really don't think we need 9 versions of firefox per year. At this rate we'll have firefox 13 on the nightly channel by this time next year, and firefox 22 by April 2013. Think of the poor website developers, especially ones who work at banks where EACH VERSION needs to be internally tested before it gets approved.

It's the same crap that Google pulls with gmail. I'm all for innovations, but keep the major releases minor and keep adding on new features.

I really don't know what you are speaking of, but that is probably because I very rarely visit my GMail account, since my client accesses all of my mail for me.

Sorry, brain fart. I meant Google Chrome...not gmail. Upping version numbers all of the time. I think Google Chrome 37 is the current version.
