It upsets me to the core when a company forces updates of their products on the user without respect for the user. This is still MY computer and I like to be able to control what and when downloads or updates occur. It's irresponsible and disrespectful for any software company to "ASSUME" I'm going to want their updates at the earliest possible time, whether convenient for me or not. I have so many problems with the browser now and have been trying to get back to the stable version before 4.0, which can't be found anywhere. Ram-rodding your product down our throats is not going to make us like the product any better and, from what I've seen, may not fix previous issues. In fact, I used to support Firefox very strongly, but with what I've seen lately from the product's stability and with how they treat customers like uneducated peons who aren't capable of determining what's best for my computer and by initially taking that decision away from me by controlling my PC downloads for me, I don't think I want any part of this any longer.

Ever since I downloaded the new Firefox, StumpleUpon keeps linking me to the same sites.

you should check with the add-on
sometimes when you upgrade add-ons are not compatible & there may be an upgrade to your add0n to go with it. also, make sure to keep the new firefox updated too, & email tech support. i'm not sure why you're complaining here, when you haven't asked them for help yet??????????

I agree. I hate this latest version of Firefox. (8) I no longer can get google toolbar for some dumb reason. The choice of options to put in the menu bar are useless. Slow as ever and freezes. It's too bad that what used to be a good browser has gotten as bad as IE. Very disappointing. Whoever the dumb azz is that is making these updates should be fired.

80 year old troll... or just a prime example of what your generation excels at: namecalling.

first of all, you can turn off automatic updates to Firefox, or set it to let you know when there is an update and you can choose if you want it or not. Your Firefox is just set up wrong.

Secondly, you can download all the previous versions for free going back to Version 0.6 (why anyone would want that I don't know).
