    Please excuse me im a bit in the dark with all of this but why do firefox keeps releasing these versions in nearly quick succession.?
    I dont know if anybody else is experiencing this but the latest version does seem rather slow in browsing.
    Incidentally im using kaspersky which has a web filter,does this affect the browsing speed.?
    Regards.:thumb:

    blame Google Chrome for this.lol
    it's the same browser, only the version numbers change.
    as long as they fix bugs and improve security that's all that matters to me.
    ----
    the speed does not have seem to change for me.
    ----
    disable the web filter and see if you get a difference.
    these things do have an effect on the speed of the browser.

    Have you tried these on your Kaspersky? :
    1. Disable Idle System Scan
    2. Disable Regular Rootkit Scan.

    Hmm, I hope malware sites cannot make use of this API for more convincing social engineering.

    There are a number of unknowns that can happen with something that is largely untested - many are surprised that Mozilla has collaborated with
    Facebook in this way. I would not run this software myself. :ouch:

    I'm running Fx 17 (beta 3) and must have missed something.

    I read the article and it is stated therein, "enable Facebook Messenger for Firefox under the Tools menu, then visit the Facebook website in Firefox". In fact, I don't see any such item 'under the Tools menu' and, although I don't have a Facebook account, when I visited the home page I was offered absolutely nothing. o_O


    I searched "about:config" for facebook and only found two entries:

    social.activation.whitelist https://www.facebook.com - and
    social.manifest.facebook (followed by a bunch of different entries in Value)
