I’ve read the various threads on installing FF3.5 and it seems a mixed bag as to how well it runs. But as it’s the nature of forums to skew things to look worse than they are (people mostly post due to problems rather than how well something works) I’d like to hear if the problems being experienced are limited to a few and that the majority are happy with FF3.5 and is working fine for them.
I installed it on my wife’s XP laptop and liked how fast it was so would like to install it on my oS11.1 but only if it works well.
I am using it for over one week on 11.1 KDE.
For me, it is just ok… Not much things changed since 3.0.11 for me. The same look and feel, speed etc. Just one thing changed and that is version number…from 3.0.11 to 3.5.
Well I haven’t upgraded because it’s not in any of the repos I have set up.
Last time I installed Firefox outside of the package manager my system ended
up with split personalities. Not sure if that is what is causing some of
the complaints about 3.5 or not.
Runs very well here so much so I was able to re-activate a security
app that fx has. The one that runs pages by Google to make sure they’re safe. It used to slow Fx down under, 3.5 it loads like as quickly as 2.0 did.
If this post is directed at me, what can I say? I updated to Firefox-3.5.0-7.1 and mozilla-xulrunner191-126.96.36.199-9.1 from the mozilla repo and Firefox wouldn’t start. So I updated xulrunner191 to 188.8.131.52-25.2 from mozilla:/factory/openSUSE_Factory and it worked.
