    43.0.1 out now.

    Looks like it's broken a couple of my add ons.

    Why would he, this is a Mozilla/Firefox thread.

    Yeah 43.0 broke two of mine. I just done the following:

    about:config > xpinstall.signatures.required > false

    They came back for me. Still working, so I don't know why they for disabled in the first place. I suspect some stupid signing process has been screwed up with versions.

    Finally! No more captain obvious full screen messages! V43 rocks. Now if only I could sync bookmarks both directions between PC & iOS.

    WF 43.0.4 recent build seems "flaky" and some pages aren't loading or are taking a long time to resolve and then render, is anyone else noting this?

    I noticed yesterday that there was a time delay of maybe 5 secs between a new tab opening and the page starting to load, but not on all pages. I also hadn't noticed it before yesterday and I think I did the last update (to 43) 2 weeks ago.

    What do you guys do regarding FF Hardware Acceleration?

    Do you run with HW Acceleration on, or off?

    I switched it on after having a few problems with it about 2 or so years ago, but had instant instability again, so have it re-disabled.

    That's odd,

    I sync bookmarks and settings between my rarely used Windows 10 machine and my numerous Linux machines just fine. Must be an OSX issue?

    Tried that - issue seemed slightly worse if anything.

    Yup, Mozilla have only just released FF to iPhone, and it operates like a 3 legged pig.

    Ah. FF has been out on Android for years, initially I wasn't to keen on it, but now it's matured into a really good browser - Even supports add ons. So the basis is there for a good mobile browser, lets hope they port it all over to Apple soon and get the bugs sorted out.

    Either it, or some plugin, is a major battery hog on my phone. Sometimes it is using at much as (on average) 25% cpu usage, which makes the phone slow to respond and quite hot. Every time I use it lately, I'm having to end the app rather than just let it sit in the background.

    I have been running Cyberfox this last month and are very impressed with it.

    It seems to have a lot more updates coming, is far more stable than WaterFox was being (lot's of pages freezing), faster and has a more advanced right click context menu.

    Couple of new versions of FF out recently (up to 48.0.2 now), and have only managed to break just one of my add-ons.....just FDM....but they are normally quick to update :thumbup:

    Quick question, Is Free Download Manager still being updated? I didn't realise but it appears my FDM extension has been disabled, probably for a while now.

    Latest update seems to be July 18, 2016.

    Since about Wednesday Thunderbird keeps on asking for me to enter new password. It will not send my emails until I close down and restart it then it doesn't ask for a password it just sends it.

    Any ideas?

    I've had this issue but my memory is hazy as to how I sorted it.

    I suggest checking that your ISP hasn't changed ports or protocols, and then re-entering your server settings as if you're setting it up for the first time.
