  1. Don’t download Firefox 15.0.1 ! I’m running OSX 10.6.8, and when I launched Firefox it froze immediately. I was not able to get past the welcome page.

    Force quitted and relaunched three times, it didn’t help. Trashed Firefox and reinstalled it : same problem.

    Quite simply : it doesn’t work.

    There are other browsers out there…

  2. something is wrong with your mac bud. works fine on my 10.6.8.

  3. My Windows 7 control panel indicates BOTH 15.0 AND 15.0.1 are running. How can that be? Shouldn’t 15.0.1 have replaced 15.0?
