Firefox 9 delivers "30% speed boost"

Filed under
Moz/FF

re: FF9 Speed Boost

Mozilla is making things worse for itself

Updating to version 9 prevented me from logging in to a website of a financial institution with which I deal. I was able to log in using a different browser. Fortunately, I still had the installer for version 8. I have removed version 9 and reinstalled version 8 with which I am again able to log in to the website.

Who can have confidence in the updating process when this sort of problem occurs?

A pertinent adage: "hasten slowly" or "more haste less speed."
