Or am I just imagining it? It has been more buggy than an ant hill since I installed it. Is anyone else having problems?...

    Perhaps you'd care to define "Sucks and buggy"? Such broad claims and little facts can lead many people to not even read your post thinking maybe you're just ranting on about something that a lot of people actually like and use. Which Distro? Maybe your distro "Sucks and is buggy"? Which Desktop? It might be kinda sucky and buggy too.

    It could also be a problem with a plug in. Firebug for example seems to eat memory like it's going out of fashion!

    Firefox is usually my go to browser. I started using Mint some time back. After I had major issues with inserting media in forum posts with Mint, I got frustrated and tried a Fedora distro. Same problem. Thus, my conclusion is that Firefox is the problem. I have no idea what is causing it.

    Aye - running Firefox 17 with Windwos 7 here at work and all is well. Since I updated a couple of days ago it's not missed a heartbeat. It didn't before then, with the 16 variant that I was using. Are you sure you've got the latest one?

    What do you mean by inserting media? What do you mean by issues? Do you have an example?

    I'm only using Iceweasel 10 here but I could probably test in a VM...

    I updates to FF17 just ours after it went live. I haven't seen any issues with its performance/behavior.
    Could you give a detailed description of what you're experiencing?

    No problems with it here, and I've used it in Arch, Crux, and FreeBSD. I'd recommend closing Firefox, then renaming your hidden ~/.mozilla folder, and then opening Firefox again so that the folder can rebuild itself. If that fixes things, you can always reclaim your bookmarks from the renamed folder before deleting it. If it works fine and then goes haywire after adding any extensions, it might be one of those causing any issues.

    Good point. Often times, plugin developers need a little time to get certain bugs worked out for new browser versions.

    I'm sorry everyone, I had it backwards. Apparently it hadn't been updated. I thought it had. A thousand apologies. Firefox is awesome.
