Firefox 8 any problems ??

  Muergo 18:47 10 Nov 2011

I read that northumbria has stuck with FF7 until bugs are ironed out on 8, but I thought FF8 was supposed to cure bugs on FF7 so has anybody tried FF8 before I install it.?/

ok here, depends on your addons.

No bugs on 8 just make sure you save add-ons when updating.

Hi Muergo - I was just making the comments in relation to the earlier Post and the problems jennydog appeared to have encountered. I have also read that although Firefox 8 is offered as an update it is best to uninstall your previous version first before install.

I can't comment any further as I am delaying trying it - the choice is down to you.

However - that is not to say I won't try it tomorrow !!

I haven't had any snags at all.

MacBook Pro running 10.5.8 using Microsoft Outlook Web App 2010 version. Email attachments pdfs, jpgs, etc download as ashx files which do not open unless you change them to the proper extensions. This was not a problem with earlier releases of Firefox and is not a problem with Chrome and Safari browsers. Firefox Preferences > Applications changes to indicate proper extensions are not effective.

I have been running FF8 all day after what was just an upgrade, everything came back and I can't see any differences yet, apart from little snag with JAVA but that's normal, all my addons extensions working fine.

Don't know what Bobolink is getting at, has he got the right thread? for MacbookPro.?
