Running the latest version of Firefox is a huge drag — repeated freezes that require a forced shutdown of the application on my MacBook Pro. Growing pains for the Mozilla folks or just sloppy coding?
Update: I should have been clearer, as commenters are noting, that the sloppy coding, if it exists, could easily be the doing of the folks writing the add-on extensions that many Firefox users, including me, have found so helpful. I’ve been testing the application with some of the extensions removed to see if that is the problem and, if so, to try to isolate what add-on(s) might be causing the problem.
New Update: The Mozilla folks have identified a small bug in the software. I installed a slightly updated version of the application, I’ve had no freezes since then. Thanks!
