Ain’t I lucky? I decided to do an absolutely fresh installation of Firefox 7 and would obviously have to reinstall my extensions and skins. The thing is, none of the extensions will download. This is making me sad, as Firefox has got some excellent extensions. Let’s hope that Mozilla fixes the issue soon as it has been several hours now. Click the image to witness my misery!

Good news for all you benchmark geeks, Futuremark, the world’s leading benchmark maker, has released a new version of its highly popular web browsers testing tool for you to play with.

If you don’t feel like reading small font size words in various web pages and can’t really be bothered to zoom in all the time, we have a simple solution: set a default page zoom level. Here is how:
Users and developers cited a number of reasons why consumers might want to use the less frequent Extended Support Release (ESR) builds that were announced recently. These include problems with extensions unable to keep up with the six week cadence, and a desire for fewer updates on machines they support for family and friends.
The ESR Firefox may also be just “good enough” for many users, one Mozilla developer argued.
The reason I expect a lot of users to switch to these ESR builds is not because they want extensions to work or because of any one issue that we can fix in the future. It’s simply because Firefox works ‘good enough’ right now and they don’t want to have to deal with change. – Cheng Wang on the mozilla.planning.dev discussion group
