    I’d rather them do what most developers do: hold new releases after beta stage. It gives testers and add-on developers some stability to truly test the product for general releaseg{<.<}g

      When they say beta, they mean it. I usually wait for the release candidates.

    Why is Firefox introducing new features for every weekly beta? Many of these features have broken one thing or another (i.e. noscript/adblock compatibility), seems kind’ve an ass-backwards way of testingg{…}g

      • Applecrusher
      • 10 years ago

      Would you rather they never again introduced something in a BETA?

        • DancinJack
        • 10 years ago

        I don’t think that’s what he was saying. I understand both of your points though. I’m sure they’ll have those add-ons fixed come RC time.

        I consider add-ons as part of the browser ecosystem. I don’t use browsers without themg{<.<}g

          No matter how hard you wish it still won’t make add-ons part of the browser though 😉 Also as you know it’s also called a ‘beta’ for a reason so complaining about beta problems is quite silly.

            • 10 years ago

            You don’t have to complain about problems about beta? Nice beta testing there, I see.

            ‘Complain’ is different from ‘give beta test feedback,’ smartass. I’m sure all the FF devs read all the TR shortbread articles…a whole lot of good it does here.

            i’m a ff developer, and i come here.

            This is a discussion forum, I don’t care whether or not developers read this, or any other comment. In the bread we discuss articles amongst each other.

            I gave feedback (I’ve given lots of feedback using FF built-in tools, mostly negative.) I find the new FF UI to be a mess. I find add-ons and plug-ins UI in particular to be a mess, and ripe for phishing. (put up a web page that mocks these UI and you are golden with opportunity for getting away with lots of malware, I guarantee this will happen.) I’m not going to use the UI the way they want, (because I want menu items shared with address bar, and tabs belong on the bottom. The tab title is important to me and I don’t want to have it at the top) As a power user, it was trivial to get it to the way I want. As someone who cares about others’ using Firefox, I find it a jarring change that is unnecessaryg{<.<}g Performance is decent, and I got my extensions to work. I didn't join the beta until beta2, like I do with all betas. I actually think Opera and IE have the best testing programs. I find Google and Firefox's aren't really getting the best feedback or listening to their users enough. Google I find everyone is a beta-tester, no matter what build they use, as essentially Google sends executables to your machine when it feels like it (since Chrome is now averaging a security hole every day on average nowg{<.<}g)

      “Things breaking” this week that weren’t broken last week is par for the course anytime you use early beta software which is constantly in revision. Solution? Don’t use the beta and wait until it firms up to at least an RC release before you touch it. In some instances with respect to beta Firefox versions, they more properly ought to be called “alpha”…;) Caveat Emptor.

      These guys are just begging for the cracker community to go after them.

      Lol what’s the bet that someone’s going to file a class action lawsuit if Apple actually does implement such a thing in their phones?
