I think the security conscious will like the TLS 1.2 support.

Since you have replied, and I mised putting the humor in the first time, if is possible I may add the :) now?

As long as FF continues to allow complete configuration of their program I will continue to be a fan.

I'd be happy with FF updates if only it didn't mess with my configurations and add ons.

If I ever get my hands on whoever changes my dictionary from Australian to US spelling, I'll throttle him/her.

No matter how hard I search I can't find that infernal US dictionary to kill it.

[ADDED] The only dictionary I can locate is my Australian add-on.

The developer's information link in that article was broken.

Working page url [developer.mozilla.org...]

You can use this service to see what version of TLS your browser is using: https://www.howsmyssl.com/

This service will test the SSL certificate on your server: https://www.ssllabs.com/ssltest/

A new version of Firefox?

It must be next Wednesday already.

No thanks; FF 3.5.9 is working well for me.


Running on Win 95 or Win ME?

Thanks bill! Those sites are really helpful.

But it would be even better if we were able to see what was actually used in a SSL connection, rather than relying on those simulations and just guessing "if my client supports TLS 1.2 and the server support TLS 1.2 then they will probably use it".

Resistance is futile. Negotiation is irrelevant. You will be assimilated.

This new feature looks like it could be very useful:
Ability to reset style sheets using 'all:unset'

The downside, of course, is that we need to wait a few years for other browsers to catch up and the older one to disappear before it is really useful.

I am using FF 26.0 version and it is running good.
Can anybody tell me how the latest version of FF 28.0 runs?

I'm removing Firefox...for some reason it's turned into the biggest load of delayed, non-connectable piece of crap I've ever experienced.

Why should I have to click a minimum of three time to connect to anything and then sometimes never get a connection? I have absolutely no idea why!

All other non-Firefox based browsers work ok mostly but are definitely showing some of the same issues.

If it's working well for you, great, unfortunately I am now using Chrome to check stuff, after so many years Opera has lost the plot BUT checking with my favourite browser, Netscape 9...the world is back to normal:-)))

And yes, that includes using html5 validated sites!

WTF is going on?

WTF is going on?

I don't know, and I also don't know of another person with the symptoms you mentioned - leading me to believe whatever it is, it's localised to your PC, and yours alone.
