    When I right click, and tell it to open in a new tab, it works, however if I simply click the link, I get something a URL that includes mail.google.com...weird.

    I didn't assume they were downloaded.

    No idea what the problem is, could be gmail jibbing out or firefox :S

    ^that is so cool, it's like Futuremark ORB map, but updates downloaders' locations and download count in realtime.

    What's more awesome is the statistics page (bottom left corner).

    Probably the most productive HTML5 application I've seen so far.

    just found a good one searched it and apparently they already know flicking minimize button. freaked me out lol other than that its alright. Not seeing that big a diff in permformance tho.

    I stoped using orbit downloader tho at least the plugin part of it cause that never worked for firefox. Grab it does tho.

    I tried it again today and I still think Chrome is better in pretty much every way possible. The only thing Firefox is better at, is customization.
    Pretty disappointed, used to love Firefox.

    The refresh button needs to be on the left side of the toolbar, near my most used tabs, or have one put on every tab. I can't frigging stand having to go to the opposite side of the lousy browser to hit the one button I use all the goddamn time. Browsing is soooo slow this way. And the pinned tabs don't refresh when you start firefox. They just resume some kind of previous state, which is fucking useless. What good is a newspage or google homepage pinned tab if every time you open firefox it doesn't refresh the page? Might as well make it a goddamn regular tab, that way I can actually pick the icon. I can't believe it, I have loved firefox since before it was even popular and now they ruin everything for me. Great.

    Reaching your left retina.
    Like I said in a previous post you can freely customize it. Right click on it, choose "customize..." then just drag the button to where you want it. Like I'm doing here:

    My other hand usually has a writing implement in it.

    Maybe I should reinstall it?

    I have no time to check whatever old/new features, please somebody make a proper review. IE9 is blowing my mind, but I still use Opera :)

    its tied into video drivers, IE9 gets it as well. we need driver updates.

    i had some weird issues where it'd take me to the wrong page of a thread, logging in and out of TPU+GN solved it.

    If you have Blurry Text on AMD 5K or 6K Series cards turn off "Morphological Filtering" in the Gaming Tab in CCC
