EDIT buttons pushed to wrong location[edit]

At this writing, two EDIT buttons within the page have been squeezed down to about the 7th line of the "Minor releases" section. The leftmost EDIT button is for the "Minor releases" section, and the rightmost is for the "Development" section, the previous section. I have forgotten how to re-locate the second and/or third appearing templates [Firefox TOC] and [Firefox usage share] so the EDIT buttons can land where they belong. Can someone assist? --RayBirks (talk) 00:09, 28 June 2010 (UTC)

Merge with Mozilla Firefox 3?[edit]

Is there enough content here to warrant a separate article? Propose that it merge with Mozilla Firefox 3. Lfstevens (talk) 22:24, 5 July 2010 (UTC)

Screenshot[edit]

The current screenshot on the page depicts Firefox running on Linux. No offense to Linux or Mac users, but most people use Windows, so a Windows screenshot would be preferable to the current one.-Zyrath (talk) 21:39, 14 November 2010 (UTC)

So we can see a very slightly different window? I dont care which version is used in any article, but to change a pre-existing picture for this reason. No thankyou. Else we'd have a wikipedia almost full of windows screenshots. YAY! Nbound (talk) 07:25, 4 February 2012 (UTC)

Move discussion in progress[edit]

There is a move discussion in progress on Talk:Mozilla Firefox 4 which affects this page. Please participate on that page and not in this talk page section. Thank you. —RM bot 01:31, 2 March 2011 (UTC)

Forcible update for 3.6 users?[edit]

The article states, "Mozilla has discontinued support for Firefox 3.6 on April 24, 2012." This statement is sourced and clearly true.

I'm wondering if something is missing from this statement, however. I run Firefox 3.6, which regularly displays a pop-up message inviting me to upgrade to the latest version. However, today the message was different: it referred to the fact that 3.6 support is being discontinued, and then stated, "You will be prompted once more before being automatically updated." This appears to mean that within a few days, all Firefox 3.6 users will be forcibly updated to Firefox 11, and will not have the ability to say no. If this is correct, it definitely should be stated in this article! I have never before heard of a forcible update of a product like this, so it's certainly encyclopedic. — Lawrence King (talk) 22:42, 18 April 2012 (UTC)

I have updates disabled COMPLETELY, and today, firefox updated without asking me. It just closed while playing a youtube video, and restarted, stating: "Firefox has updated". Now you have heard of other cases of forced updates. Firefox developers are scum. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 77.10.65.95 (talk) 07:47, 6 March 2015 (UTC)

Please see WP:TALKNO. Discussion here is for improving the article. If you have a suggestion backed up by reliable sources, then you are most welcome to suggest it, but if you just want to complain about the browser and call people scum, then this isn't the place to do so.

Where do those insane numbers come from?[edit]

I HIGHLY doubt that like 75% of all people use Firefox 35. I don't know anyone who uses updated firefox. Everyone i know, disabled updates, because they just destroy your browser faster than any virus could. Those percentages are what firefox WISHES for. In reality, people tend to disable updates and stick to old versions. Is there even a single person in the world, that needs OR likes the new versions? What advantages do they give? None. They do nothing but implement things for themself, so they can implement new implementations easier in the future, while screwing up everything else in the process... — Preceding unsigned comment added by 77.10.65.95 (talk)

@77.10.65.95: Hello. I see that the template to the right claims that 72.84% of all Firefox users use Firefox 35. It says that 8.42% of all users use Firefox 35. Is this what you are talking about? Please keep discussion here pertaining to improving the article. If you want to discuss how bad the browser is, then you are welcome to find an appropriate message board or start a blog, but it should be kept off Wikipedia talk pages. Sorry, but Wikipedia really doesn't care about your or my personal feelings towards Firefox, Wikipedia only cares about what reliable sources think about Firefox.
