Firefox 26.0

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.

One more release where no sins were committed.

Hopefully this isn't the last FF version I use. I don't want a repeat of 3.6 where I stuck with it until 12 came out and spent a week trying to figure out how to undo or minimize all the awful changes they made to the browser (mainly the UI after v4).

Chances are 27 is the next complete UI overhaul; they might even fully remove the legacy UI from the browser.. Probably going to have to switch to Waterfox or Pale Moon or something after that if I ever want updates again. Uggh.

Was pushed back that far? First I heard 25, then I heard 27, now it's 29?

Are that many people really unhappy with it or are they having more issues than they thought?

"All Java plug-ins are defaulted to 'click to play'"

If we have an extension which requres us to click to play, will this now not work? (e.g. NoScript)

i use 'Pale Moon x64' as that's what i would use if you got a 64bit OS which nowadays who doesn't

but thanks for the update info anyways.

Mac doesn't need to install because it's packaged all in one you just drag an drop.

the windows an linux versions are smaller because they actually have to install which extracts the files

OS X version is 32/64bit, bloats out the size a fair bit if you never need to run the other version (You can strip the unneeded binaries, but it breaks any digital signature)

Torolol said,
how come FF for MacOS have almost twice the download size to FF for linux ?

Mac packages usually contain all libraries and other important data (in addition to 32/64 bit executables). Installation is as easy as drag and drop, but it does take up the most space.

Windows and Linux packages usually rely on pre-existing system libraries. There are usually specific system requirements involved (and installations may break), but they take up the least amount of space.
