Firefox 4

Firefox 4

Post by Guest on Wed Mar 23, 2011 4:45 pm

Firefox 4 was released for download yesterday. I was wondering if anyone had upgraded to this new version yet, and if so, what do you think of it.

I tested it before the release, I like it, I have learned a valuable work around on firefox, used to crash all the time (the Plug in container.exe)

The fix on any version of Firefox is:
type about:config in the addressbar,
Select:
dom.ipc.plugins.enabled.npswf32.dll - true becomes...(toggle)
dom.ipc.plugins.enabled.npswf32.dll - false

...you will never experience firefox crash again, at least the plugin container.exe which always slowed everything down.

Funny you should mention firefox crashing. I have only recently begun to have this problem. Was just going through a couple of things, and wound up removing Adobe Flash player. It took the lag away and things seem to be running a lot smoother. So you would recommend downloading the new version? And do I have to relearn where everything is at?

Doesn't it usually automatically prompt you to download the update for Firefox when the new ones come out? Mine hasn't yet.

Thank you. I'm going to try this. My Firefox has been crashing a lot lately.

I think because it's an upgrade as opposed to an update it won't automatically do it, or prompt you to do it.

I was notified yesterday that I should run the 3.6.16 security update, and after doing that I got the notice that Firefox 4 was available for downloading. I look forward to new Firefox versions and yet dread them at the same time, since I use 25 or more plugins and some of them stop working until they are updated for the new version. It seems that the plugins that I depend on the most are always the ones that stop working.

What I was saying with Firefox, 3.6, 4.0 I had a problem with it
crashing a lot, The Plugin container.exe was crashing all the time with
Adblock installed, this workaround basically turns off the plugin
container exe and Firefox works very well this way.

Never got a notice. Just happened to read it elsewhere. I'm only running about 6 plugins, so not too bad for me.

Do you have AdBlock installed now? that slows things down when the plugin container.exe is turned on, and it's up to you about the new version release, I like the look of FF4, I liked Opera Browser (for this look).. you do have to get used to the menu and a few other things, but once you do it's worth it IMO..

I've been running AdBlock for well over a year now, with zero problems. I'm guessing one of firefox's past updates is/was conflicting with something. Again, since I got rid of Adobe flash player, I am golden. Cool I'll give FF4 a week to kill the bugs, and then go for it. Thanks Mobs!

BTW: I did toggle what you said to false.
