On friday I downloaded and installed Firefox 2.0 RC3. Today I downloaded and installed Firefox 184.108.40.206. Why this step backwards? A few very irritating changes:
- Apparently you cannot view raw RSS files in the browser. Firefox now assumes every RSS file is feed (and they are) and assumes you want to preview it (I do) in HTML (I don’t). If I open an RSS file in my browser, I want to see the XML – period. If I wanted to see it transformed, I would open it in my feed reader.
- A bunch of my very useful plugins don’t work yet: UrlParams, JetBrains Omea Connector, OpenNewWindowFromHere, MeasureIt
- I hate having the ‘close tab’ button on the individual tabs. Makes it difficult close a bunch of tabs quickly
- Once a certain number of tabs were open, you have to scroll over to find them… SHOW ALL MY TABS, no matter how small they get…
Other than that, FF2.0 looked and felt pretty good.Pin It
