    (currently RC build 3 and planning to include Electrolysis and "Hello" audio/video service).

    Are we talking about the same Firefox? I'm been using FF a lot longer than 10 years.

    10 years ago I installed Firefox 1.0 It took them until June 17, 2008 to release Fx 3.0. That was the download day of v 3.0 and still have that certificate boasting a world record. Time flies and Fx certainly changed IMHO not for the better, especially in the last while when customization was taken away and things were added that I didn't want and did have to delete them.

    Thanks chachazz!

    FYI. There seems to be an issue with the URL associated with the Download Now SourceForge green button, found in the above page.

    It returns a red error message (right hand at top of this page: http://sourceforge.net/projects/portableapps/files/ ):
    The Mozilla Firefox Developer Portable file link is found there, and when clicked, it takes you here:

    http://sourceforge.net/projects/portableapps/files/Mozilla Firefox Developer Portable/

    While the stated size is only 957 kB, once installed via the Portable App Platform, it will download & install the entire program.

    Perhaps someone will fix that page SourceForge URL soon.

    Hopefully, once the multiple languages installer is updated, it'll be faster... and direct from the page's button to the download page. :)

    They should do a version with the original interface.
