  • Table in "Release history" section:
  • Inconsistent lines between columns—some are only present towards the end.
  • Maybe a different color for non-public releases? (release candidates, etc.) --> Done!

Add section on controversies to the history section[edit]

Firefox 4.x changed the UI such that many extensions and themes broke. This drove users to continue using 3.6.x instead. Now Australis may trigger more of the same. Many say it's nothing more than a clone of the Google Chrome UI—including me. Users are already leaving Firefox for other browsers. I personally switched to Pale Moon.

Version 36.0.4 came out today, March 21, 2015[edit]

I checked to update, and on 3-21-2015 it updated to version 36.0.4

Spelling consistency, US vs UK standard[edit]

I noticed the following sentence:

"Green color denotes current Firefox versions, while the pink colour is for older versions." 

The spelling "color" is US standard, whereas "colour" is UK standard. I think articles look better if a single standard is followed, especially within a single sentence. Comments? Oaklandguy (talk) 00:54, 3 June 2015 (UTC)

Hello! Right, that would even be required according to WP:ARTCON. Which variant should we choose, would MOS:TIES apply? — Dsimic (talk | contribs) 19:54, 27 June 2015 (UTC)
