User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8) Gecko/20051111 Firefox/1.5 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8) Gecko/20051111 Firefox/1.5 I downloaded Version 188.8.131.52 for Firefox and had some major problems. They are listed below: 1. No web page could be loaded. The browser just hung and showed it was trying to load the page. Several minutes would pass and nothing would happen. 2. After I realized I couldn't load any web pages I shut down the browser and tried to re-boot my machine but that wouldn't happen. After some research I realized that the firefox.exe process wasn't terminated after shutting the browser down. I tried to shut it down via the task manager and it didn't work. I had to kill the power to my computer to re-boot it. I was able to replicate these problems three times over two days. A reverted back to version 1.5 and all is fine now but there is definitely something wrong with verison 184.108.40.206. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Download Firfox version 220.127.116.11 2.Try to load any web page 3.Try to shut down windows XP. Actual Results: I could not load any web pages and I couldn't shut down Windows XP. Expected Results: I should have been able to load web pages and shut down Windows XP.
Issue 1 is usually caused by a firewall not handling the updated application properly. Norton Internet Security is one of the worst offenders, but see this for more information: http://kb.mozillazine.org/Error_loading_any_website Issue 2 is often to do with extensions not functioning properly. Here is a useful set of steps for that: http://kb.mozillazine.org/Standard_diagnostic_%28Firefox%29 Either way, these are support issues.
