    Just installed the latest Firefox and did a bit of random surfing. First impression: noticeably faster than before, probably even on par with Chrome.

    Autoupdated this am.
    Seems to work fine.
    Memory use seems about the same. (I have 10 tabs open now... lots of "complex/rich" sites... 536 MB)

    Did they fix the right-click menus randomly stopping working? Because that's the about only thing I really care about in Firefox as it stands.

    That's probably a side effect of the "Javascript always on" thing Mozilla did a few versions ago. When they got rid of the "Enable Javascript" checkbox, they also got rid of the options like "Allow scripts to take right-click" and other options.

    What's likely happening is your website is blocking right-clicks on purpose (usually as a "protection" measure so you can't right-click and activate extensions like Nuke Anything or Save As).

    Of course, the default setting of the checkbox was to disallow websites from hijacking right-click. But since it's gone, so is the setting, so websites are free to hijack right-click.

    You need to either use NoScript to block the offending Javascript, or hold down shift when you right-click, which bypasses the right-click hijack and shows the Firefox right-click menu and all the extensions.

    You're right. There's zero excuse for you blaming your problems on Firefox. Since you complained about other people not posting images here you go:

    7 tabs open.
    1 tab running a video
    16 plugins installed
    7 extensions running (10 installed).

    350MB of RAM used. Go fix your browser instead of bitching about it on Slashdot. []
