    Since Mid 2011, they have released a "new" version every 6 weeks or so,and they are on firefox 10 now. I remember when Firefox 3 and 4 were so hyped up and they were going for 20,000,000+ downloads in a day. They should just have stuck to that and done Firefox 4.1 4.2 etc. With a whole new number(version) bringing massive awesome changes.

    im sure theres a reason they do it the way they do, theres probably 1 big update in every version number e.g. v4 to v5. I get what you mean tho, next year w'll be using firefox v127.5

    There's never really anything big (other than messing up the browser even more after each update). I've stopped using FF pretty much, since with measly 50 tabs open it eats like 1.5 gigs of memory.

    So now I'm "happy" Chrome 16.0.912.77 user (seriously, why they can't use intelligent version numbering?)

    I had an old FF browser until last week I had to download to get some feature unrelated.
    My browser was two years old and much faster WTF!? Is there a way
    to go back? And don't say what comes to mind, "You can Never go back!" :D

    Also, fack Chrome. I'd do Opera before getting a Gaagle browser.

    It messes up so many plugin's when they do updates so fast. It wouldn't be so bad if they had backwards capability for the plugins.
