They would have been better off calling this Firefox 12.5 or something.

The updates they've placed in this new version are very minimal at best. But to their credit, at least they are working on the speed. Which is was many people use as a gripe against them.

Missed this one, doesn't show up with the auto updater as yet though.

Same for me, I just checked and it shows that I am still on firefox 12. I'm going to update right now if I can. I always try to update to see if the problems that I have go away but that never happens, the problems get worse. For me, It has always been flash issues with firefox. I can't get rid of firefox though because its the only one with multirow bookmarks and thats my number 1 priority.

I've updated now, really liking the new home page & new tab page.

I have updated about 2 days ago, I don't like the boxes at the beginning like other browsers. I'm sure its a simple fix to just have it as my homepage. I haven't really noticed a difference. firefox 12 was moving a little bit slower for me before the end.

I was going to use Firefox 13. Upgraded. But I got tired of it freaking freezing, closing randomly, and making my AppTabs disappear, so I switched to Google Chrome. I got realllllllllly annoyed!

I haven't bothered to upgrade it yet either, for the same reasons as Never. It kept crashing so much that eventually I switched to Chrome. Now that I've switched over, I just really don't have much interest in giving Firefox another chance unfortunately. :(
