    They do. For whatever reason they are listing a 32 and 64 bit version. They are the same file so it is an obvious mistake. Also this is the exact same file as the RC that was released a week ago.

    Yes, I noticed and wondered about that 64 bit listing too. I downloaded the installer from the Mozilla FTP site and haven't compared it to the Majorgeeks installer. When I check the "about" info in FF though it say 29 and up to date :)

    I do like the Australis UI, but I already knew I would because I had been using an Australis style with v28.

    They have corrected the page since that was posted. The checksum for all of them were the same though.

    Hmm, I hope they have not killed the feature.

    Also working again with v28. It was broken for quite a while.

    Between Chrome's latest version & FF's latest version (as of this instant in time), FF is discernibly faster on my computer. Your mileage may vary.

    It took me about 10 minutes of enjoyable tweaking to get the new FF down to a simplistic appearance. I like it.

    I'm sure the two people who are using new tab page will be very upset. Who's using that thing because I haven't seen one?

    LOL! If this is all we have to be upset about I guess things are improving. *puppy*

    From ronjor's linked article:
    As long as Mozilla keeps that option, IMO it should not be a big deal.

    I have been a FF user/fanboy ever since it was Phoenix, then Firebird, then Firefox. I have a few other browsers that I play with (I am a browser junkie) but FF remains my default. FF always inspires me to spout "F" words -- such as Fast, Faultless, Familiar, Fervently Friendly, and FREEEE! (^_^)
