Firefox 22.0 released for download

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.

Yes, opened a ticket with them and was advised that they are aware of this but don't have an ETA on a new version :-(

Yep someone was dragging their feet. This was a known issue in the 22 beta as well. That being said i'm in no rush to update to 23. Looks the same to me. Its all under the hood.

Yay ! Roboform 7.9.0.0 has been released with support for Firefox 22 and it works. It has a bunch of other fixes but no comment on later versions of Firefox ...

Your problem's prolly this:

"Windows: Firefox now follows display scaling options to render text larger on high-res displays"

So it's not a bug, it's a feature (tm)

Your problem's prolly this:

"I know **** about the topic. Eh, well, I'll just make my self look like an idiot. So what? I'm a natural!"

There has been a long controversy regarding this since the nighlty builds. It's one of those things that will drive even more users away.

I don't need to *forcibly* upgrade only to find out every goddamn page looks like I'm the perv peaking over to my neighbor with my telescope, or get the ugliest and unprofessional looking UI ever.

So, I must agree, it's not a bug it's a huge flaw in a raw release. Like eating balut. Few will like and embrace this.

Oh, and the solution is to change layout.css.devPixelsPerPx to 1.0 in about:config. But that will make only the graphics in UI behave, the text in UI will look like ants.

And to equal your analogy, living in a bubble only makes you a blissful unaware egg. Wait 'till all those crazy sperms will come (sic!) knocking on your door! Mwuhahahaha!!!

Dude. Dafuq are you talking about. Seriously.

Oh, sorry. I thought this was TV-MA rated. I guess I should have gone with the birds and the bees, right!? Go back to sleep son, it's nothing you'll understand here.

It actually fixed my problem. I had to install NoSquint on one hi-res computer. Now I can uninstall it, and sync Add-Ins with Firefox sync (I had it disable so NoSquint would not go to other computers that didn't need it).

Pity or lucky you? Getting depressed 'cause of the version numbers of a program means either you don't have life and you get easily distracted by a PC program or you're so eager to depression, so sensitive in a negative way, unfortunately that you can't get over it.

Believe me, you don't have to care about version numbers. Usually ain't something important in relation to a normal guy's life.

"Performance. Firefox is built on top of the powerful new Gecko platform"

The Gecko platform that originated in 1997 in Netscape and has always been used in Firefox? That is new.

Read the article. That is what he is commenting on.

Glad you read it. Now reread it. Where in that quote does it say "new feature".

Um... the part that says "new Gecko platform". Gecko is not a new platform.
When did TRC say "feature"?

I'm talking about the change log. Geesh. Since when do people know how to write a news story. ALWAYS read the source not what the author has to say. 80% of the time it is biased; 20% of the time they have no clue what they are talking about.

That's what I mean about read it again. That's why I posted the source link that people seem to overlook and go for the gibberish that is usually written (that is just as bad as people who comment on a story they didn't read just the headline).

In fairness to Neowin, MajorGeeks is just as bad with their summaries fro "New" software. Just copy and paste garbage.

Just my two-cents.
