He wrote Perl that looked suspiciously like C code in 1998, while working as an intern, and has been trying to cure that bad habit ever since.
Yep, I always upgrade to the latest and greatest Fire$ANIMAL when I read the release announcement.
Now the complaints. I hate the installer for Windows XP. Yes, I realize that some people need the installer, but I prefer the plain old download-and-unzip method. Worse still, for some weird reason, the old profile refused to work, so I had to manually sling the bookmarks and form history and signon thingies into the new profile directory. S'all good.
Onto extensions. Open my bookmarks, go to the developer pages and install.Then, the browser refuses to start, but throws a weird XBL error instead. WTF ? Turns out that Tabbrowser extensions are borked. I have anything from 3-5 extensions, all of which I installed within the first few minutes of getting the new version. I didn't know which extension had caused the crash. yikes! Uninstall (bah, stupid installer), reinstall, try them one extension at a time. Figure out it was TBE, uninstall the whole shebang again and install everything else.
Now my whine is that the browser has changed (I have gotten so used to TBE that the context menus and things had been customized). Do the action that I am used to (right click on tab - left click to close the tab) now results in a "new tab" instead
