is it too much to ask that firefox actually understand what the hell a align=center command is? I hate designing webpages and that command works on 3 of the 4 majors but I got to jump through F'ing hoops to get it on firefox.

If only Mozilla would make an OS....

The only improvement I'm waiting for is an official 64 bit Fire Fox. GET TO F*CKING WORK! Water Fox has been out since version 9! I only don't use it because some of my 32 bit add on's won't work with it, which is something I look to Mozilla to get off their arses and figure out. Opera already figured it out...

While I would find it pretty sleek to also own a 64-bit browser, unless you're transferring and holding over 4 GB of info, what's the point?

Are you running into problems using Firefox with 4GB of memory (2GB per process)? If not, why do you care if it's 32 or 64-bit?

DDI,
Y'know, that IS a good question. I just figured 64 bit anything was better, but when I was running Waterfox, I did not see any improvements. I guess I will just forget about 64 bit Firefox until I see a need.

1st More efficient memory allocations based on 64 bit addressing.
2nd Native support for 64 bit means that my processor will handle it better. I don't know about you but when I close FireFox it takes longer to close than when I tried WaterFox. There is a better load and close time.
3rd Because it's behind the curve. Other browsers are already 64 bit, and it's already got 64 bit in other OS.
4th Because most other programs are moving to native 64 bit, especially with how the OS market is shifting to 64 bit. Which again makes this behind the curve.
Lastly:
This is Maximum PC, I want my machine to run at it's maximum with maximum compatibility.

The version number is arbitrary and meaningless. Mozilla wants to more rapidly release new features and enhancements and you have to call it _something_. I don't understand why so many people seem to be hung up on a version number.

I can't wait for version 22

The cool kids call it "the deuce-deuce".

Version 15? Wow, it seems like only a year ago when they were releasing version 5.0.

Oh, wait...

Since the start of these almost monthly updates Firefox features have become nothing but a blur to me. Something just feels wrong on Mozilla's end because I don't feel that way about Chrome updates.

It just feels to me as though the version number is increased for any minor improvement or fix.
