Open source supporter Mozilla has today announced the arrival of its latest Firefox release, Firefox 12. This build brings a stealthier update system on Windows (it removes the user account control dialog pop-up), multiple security fixes, better WebGL performance on Mac OS X, automatic downloads for URLs pasted into the download manager window, support for the text-align-last CSS property and for the ECMAScript 6 Map and Set objects, and a few more tweaks and improvements.

Mozilla's sync service is a pile of rubbish nonsense. I haven't seen anything so freakin unreliable and buggy in my life. I really wonder how Mozilla manages to fuck everything up...

Firefox started doing what chrome does. Honestly, I like how Ubuntu does their versions. 12.04 = April 2012 release, so the version actually means something, but that only works until we get to 2100, but who cares, practically none of us will have to solve that problem (even though 2100.04 would solve it). ;)

Outside of not being able to delete computers from my list, I've never had a single problem other then when the server was down.

I haven't used FF for a lil while now. I've been using Aurora (FF based) Its not bad. Pretty much the exact same thing. No issues with sync or anything. Only problem I have is youtube vid's won't play but thats prob due to a plugin screwing it up. Haven't gotten around to fixing it yet.

crap

Firefox used to be awesome. I would use it over chrome any day when Chrome first came out. Then it changed. I now use Chrome almost 100% of the time. When I develop web apps they just work better.

At work we've actually had to stop people from using firefox since version 7. They've introduced errors that have not been fixed. Like the text in between the iframe tags being displayed when iframes are turned off. You get nothing when you should see the message. And 2 versions ago forms became goofy. They just seem to be doing what they can to crank the new feature out and get the verson number up instead of actually making something good.

when IE9 renders more reliably you have some problems. and I hate IE

I always had the impression that it's the web itselfs that's bloated. :p

But seriously, why do people say FF is bloated nowadays? What has changed that made it so?

Ppl don't even know what "bloated" means for real anymore... For most, everything is bloated, because it's cool to say that. But they really have no clue what that really means. Firefox clearly isn't bloated. The design itself is rather slim and they leave the choice to the user.
Opera could be said that it's bloated but they are slimming it down with v12 by disabling some stuff and removing it later. But then again, some like the fact that they get everything in it out of the box and that they don't have to fiddle with gazillion of addons to get some form of basic functionality.

Yeah, I'm using Chrome along side Firefox, once I start loading extensions it gets just as bloated as Firefox, never mind crashes.

Firefox for me starts fast enough, depending on maintenance, learn how to clean the places.sqlite file, but adding Adblock will slow down the browser considerably, and will use a lot more ram.

Overall for Google stuff Chrome is good, I mainly use it for maps and other g apps. But Firefox is fine enough for everything else.
