Unless Mozilla manages one hell of an about face next version, Firefox is going to find itself in the Recycle Bin. In my experience, this once great browser is finding itself in a hack of a fall from grace on the Windows platform.

I'm kinda hoping Mozilla pulls a Microsoft and can recognize that it might be time to rebuild the browser from scratch, just like Microsoft did with IE9 for Windows 7.

There are many things in the pipline, IonMonkey which should give some boost to JS performance. Not that JS performance matters any more since it is already fast, but this engine is also more memory efficient.

Incremental GC and Generational GC

Super Snappy which should brings most of the benifits of e10s ( Process per Tab ) without a Total Rewrite. ( It is still a huge project though )

A new backend for Graphics Accleration

If chrome had extension and interface modification capability that was on par with Firefox, I'd switch to that in a heartbeat. But Firefox sacrificed something for its vast array of features and that was performance. I don't mind one bit.

Well... they are slow, i have to admit. :/ But hopefully they do land before the end of the world 2012.

I switched to the ESR release. I got sick of it breaking everything every six weeks, so I'm 10.0.3ESR. Does what I need it to do (vaguely) when I need it do it.

They should just rename it to firefox 4.012

This way they have 999 versions before they finally decide to move to real Firefox 5.

Hey, relax. It could be worse. They still haven't updated Firefox with their new skin which would look as out of place on Windows as a Nazi celebrating a Bar Mitzvah.

Do let me know if this is the case. Also stopped me from using FF11 (and Waterfox 11).

It does have a fantastic addon / extension system which is growing quickly. 90% of the addons you want on Fireworks will have a Chrome equivalent. :)

And waiting and waiting, etc....................

Personally,

I think Firefox has finally actually been improving, which wasn't a hard thing to do, in the last couple releases although I only use it in Linux as it blows major chunks in Windows and I WON'T use it there! That's where Palemoon and Waterfox come in.

Not to mention that Chrome doesn't seem to slow down as much per addon that you install as Firefox.

10 Addons on firefox will make a notable difference, 10 addons on Chrome doesn't. Of course, this likely depends on the addons, but that's what I've noticed from personal use.

How about having a bookmark menu instead of a bar or having to click the wrench?

There is one extension but it looks awful. In firefox i have bookmarks menu docked in the tab bar next to my tabs, one click gives me access to all my bookmarks in a dropdown.
