Soon, young padawan, your conversion to the dark side of the code will be complete. Increase your version numbers, embrace the cheap marketing tricks, unlimited POWERRRRR! You will not learn of these things from a Jedi.

Stupid version number crap has been going on forever. First version of Windows NT was 3.1. Why? Because Windows for Workgroups was already at 3.1, and if they released NT as version 1.0, people would automatically assume it was inferior to Windows for Workgroups. Same thing just happened with Windows 7. It's not version 7: it's version 6.1. Yes, Vista 2.0. But everyone bashed Vista for being crap so MS couldn't release it as anything but a different OS. Stupid verion number crap. :mad:

Windows 7 is similar to Vista, but definitively not Windows 6.1

I don't care, it's not like you're forced to update/use 7.0.

I believe that FF devs are doing a excellent job with the Firefox 9 nightly builds with the performance. It beats Chrome in terms of speed and page loading, maybe because it has REAL GPU acceleration while Chrome doesn't (Yes it has GPU compositing in all pages enabled, but I don't see the GPU is working, unlike Firefox).

rejzor turn off smooth scrolling?

Don't care for the epeen numbers from FF but w.e updates are updates. Just tell them once they hit 20 this is gonna sound stupid

FireFox 23 just makes it sound old and broken not up to date.
Then what's the point? I need smooth scrolling because wiithout it everything is choppy while scrolling. The thing is, i'm not getting this issue on my netbook with WinXP so it has to do something with either Win7, my Raden HD6950 and/or AMD Catalyst.
Everything else works fine, so if they could just fix this damn thing already and i'd be on my way.

Try enabling/disabling Hardware acceleration.

I did and the same thing happens with HW acceleration disabled. The thing is, when Firefox gets all choppy and laggy, my RocketDock that i have on my top screen edge is also lagging like hell if i pull it out.

However there must be something weird going on because i was testing Opera 11.51 few days ago and i got a very similar thing. Scrolling got a bit choppy and tabs when you open a new one didn't slide open smoothly, but they were all choppy. But the whole thing was nowhere near as horrid as with Firefox. I don't remember Chrome having such problems...

Strange, Is this happening randomly on a specific page, ie with flash.

In my case I get lagging with Firefox only if the webpage has lots of Flash stuff, or if I open too many heavy pages (because I have limited RAM), or if I load many pages together. In Chrome I got similar issues but I think it's a memory/GDI objects leak.

I have just updated FF to 7 and all I have to say is the changes are so insignificant I can only see this update as a stupid version number jump.
If they are going to do something, they should make the change worthy and significant.
Why improve on something kick ass only to cause more overhead and more problems.

I vouch for calling the next FF version FFF (Fire Fox Fail) because they are being dumb with this number jumping.

I say the next version should be Firefox ∞ so they can just give up on trying to artificially inflate the number.

Nope the changes are sufficient to release an update

Anyway I agree jumping to 7 is bad, it should be 6.5 or something else.

Windows 7 is similar to Vista, but definitively not Windows 6.2
It's not 6.2, because it IS 6.1 :ohwell:
It is the actual version number of the kernel and stuff in "Windows 7".

pressed 2 by accident but even if the "kernel and stuff" was V 6.1, Windows 7 is sufficiently different to warrant a different name then Vista. It is in no way comparable to the inflation of version of FF.

Whatever the changes are I am not seeming them or noticing them off the bat.
It looks and runs just the same as the previous FF IMO.

Version 7 is not bad, but i still get retarded choppy scrolling and lagging of the entire brwser and Windows GUI on my main system. If i restart the browser, all is well again. It has been like this since FF 4.0. I have no clue what the hell they are doing.
Don't worry - folks at Mozilla don't have a clue either.

It takes multiple extensions just to rework 4.x (or whatever they call it today, "7.0") into something as functional as 3.6.x. No advantages over older version, mind you, just to get the same functionality back (things such as status bar, correct order of pop-up menu etc.). They're stupid and they're going to sink what was once a good browser, just like Netscape did almost 15 years ago with transition from 3.x to 4.x and onwards.

It's not 6.2, because it IS 6.1 :ohwell:
It is the actual version number of the kernel and stuff in "Windows 7".
pressed 2 by accident but even if the "kernel and stuff" was V 6.1, Windows 7 is sufficiently different to warrant a different name then Vista. It is in no way comparable to the inflation of version of FF.
Yes. If you open up a command line and type "ver" it says "Microsoft Windows [Version 6.1.7600]."
