Recommended Posts

No I'm not risking it, I had trouble with the previous one! Now I'm using the FF edition that Craig recommended...(can't remember the number ffs :lol:) And its brilliant, our PC is running much smoother.

I've gone to v5 and AA is right - it pisses all over v4.

 

Little tip - Mozilla are absolutely dogshit at compiling upgrade packages. Best way to upgrade to the latest version is to completely remove the previous one:

 

1. Backup you bookmarks - go to Bookmarks > Show All Backups > Import & Backup > Backup - should save the file locally as a *.json file

2. Uninstall current Firefox version using 'Add & Remove Programs'

3. Click 'Start' & 'Run' and in the dialog box type '%userprofile%\Application Data' and click OK. In the explorer window that appears, highlight the Mozilla folder and delete it.

4. Click 'Start' & 'Run' and in the dialog box type '%userprofile%\Local Settings\Application Data' and click OK. In the explorer window that appears, highlight the Mozilla folder and delete it.

5. Install the new version of Firefox

6. Import your bookmarks - go to Bookmarks > Show All Backups > Import & Backup > Restore - find the *.json file you saved previously

 

Job done :icon_lol:

Job done :huh:

 

I'm installing it now without doing any of the above. If these dickheads can't work out how to do a basic upgrade, and it causes their software to run shit, then they don't deserve to get me switching from Chrome. :lol:

I recently jumped to Chrome and I'm not going back :lol:

 

Quoted for truth.

 

Re-imaged my mum's laptop a couple of months back and set her up with chrome as the default browser and she is working fine.

 

That's just a note for the older posters who seem to have trouble moving forward. :lol:
