Firefox 10.0 Beta 5

Mozilla Firefox is a fast, full-featured Web browser. Firefox includes pop-up blocking, tab-browsing, integrated Google search, simplified privacy controls, a streamlined browser window that shows you more of the page than any other browser and a number of additional features that work with you to help you get the most out of your time online.

The Web is all about innovation, and Firefox sets the pace with dozens of new features to deliver a faster, more secure and customizable Web browsing experience for all.

User Experience. The enhancements to Firefox provide the best possible browsing experience on the Web. The new Firefox smart location bar, affectionately known as the "Awesome Bar," learns as people use it, adapting to user preferences and offering better fitting matches over time.

Performance. Firefox is built on top of the powerful new Gecko platform, resulting in a safer, easier to use and more personal product.

Security. Firefox raises the bar for security. The new malware and phishing protection helps protect from viruses, worms, trojans and spyware to keep people safe on the Web.

Customization. Everyone uses the Web differently, and Firefox lets users customize their browser with more than 5,000 add-ons.

I've lost it with Firefox... its is getting so slow and keeps freezing on websites and hangs for a really long time I tried to fix it with no plugins and clean profile. I only use it now when developing websites has a great plugin library though, sure will miss it but I know if I need it I can just manage with the slowness now I use chrome for pretty much everything except for online shopping.

They really need to start looking into these problems, or have a better diagnostic system to detect this issue or I can force a report and it will send data in the last 20 - 30 seconds worth of events and maybe that will help them figure out why it keeps hanging..

Sounds like something else is causing your problems, and manifesting itself with your firefox installation. If you do have a problem, I'm sure the devs will be happy to hear about it. File a bug report.

Version 10 already?! They are just trying to be like Chrome...


No they don't. They just want to bring new features ASAP, instead of one major update every 1/1.5 years.

i am waiting for the final version so then Waterfox will update to 10.0

but what i really want to know is... when will Firefox release a official 64bit version of their browser?

I think mozilla has recognized the waterfox project. And its so much faster!
