Ask SlashDot: Life After Firefox 3.6.x?

Mooga (789849) writes | more than 2 years ago

Chrome 2

Mooga (789849) writes "I am a hard-core user of Firefox 3.6.x who has chosen to stick with the older, yet supported version of Firefox for many years now. However, 3.6.x will soon hit end of life making my life, and others, much more complicated. 3.6.x has been known for generally being more stable and using less ram then the modern Firefox 10 and even Chrome. The older version of Firefox is already having issues rendering modern websites. What are others who have been holding onto 3.6.x plan on doing?"

I'm hanging on to 3.6.xx -- so far it does everything I need. What websites have you found that don't work properly?

Not that many.
I used 3.6 until very recently ... I now use Portable Apps version 9.0.1 (which rather annoyingly keeps asking me to upgrade to version 10)

Best advice I have for any 3.6 users - get the 4.0 version (portable or otherwise) and customise the UI to make it look like 3.6.
Once you have used the magic that is being able to resize multi line input boxes.. you won't want to go back. After the UI has been fixed.

Submission Text Formatting Tips

We support a small subset of HTML, namely these tags:

  • b
  • i
  • p
  • br
  • a
  • ol
  • ul
  • li
  • dl
  • dt
  • dd
  • em
  • strong
  • tt
  • blockquote
  • div
  • quote
  • ecode

"ecode" can be used for code snippets, for example:

<ecode>    while(1) { do_something(); } </ecode>
