    5 Reasons Why I Don’t Like Firefox

    By | September 1, 2007 | 9 Comments

    FirefoxIt’s time for my final “5 Reasons Why I Don’t Like” post. Firstly it was Internet Explorer, then Opera and now… Firefox. For obvious reasons I won’t post “5 Reasons Why I Don’t Like Safari” as Safari 3 is still a beta. I hope that you enjoyed those posts, sooner or later I will come back to this “5 Reasons Why I Don’t Like” posts again. Till then I hope that most of those reasons and/or problems/annoyances will be fixed soon. And here it comes…

    1. Firefox needs to be restarted after each add-on and/or theme installation.
    2. It has very less features so you have to install dozens of add-ons. Why I don’t like to install add-ons? See 1′st reason.
    3. Poor download manager.
    4. Sometimes happens when I click back (why can’t it just BACK?).

    Firefox Error

    5. I don’t know why but Firefox team ignores some of the security issues. Do you like that?
