Mozilla Firefox 34.0 RC 2 / 33.1.1 pick
Software Product Description
Mozilla Firefox is so flexible that you can not only remove what you do not want but also place what you want almost anywhere. The “Customize” panel allows you to easily add, remove or move buttons. You can make it easy to access the features you use most often.
The Sync feature lets you access your passwords, bookmarks and history from multiple devices irrespective of your location. Tabbed browsing lets you open multiple pages in one window, and switching between the tabs is easy and fast.
The browser includes several features designed to enhance your security and privacy. The Lightbeam add-on enables you to see those trying to watch you online, and turning on private browsing ensures others will not see your browsing history. Many websites collect information about you as you browse the Internet, but Firefox includes a “Do Not Track” feature that lets you decide how you would like to share your information, that is if you want to share any information at all.
You can also add a multitude of extensions to increase the functionality of your browser.
These great features would mean little if the browser´s speed frustrated you. Thankfully, the latest Mozilla Firefox is also the fastest so far. It beats other popular browsers at accomplishing everyday tasks and technical benchmarks. A recent independent test dubbed it as the “Speed King,” as it outperformed the other browsers. You can even use the browser to play online games smoothly and without affecting the overall performance of your computer.

Cons: Cannot disable prompt "It looks like you have not been using firefox in a while. Would you like to clean up the profile?"
Other Thoughts: Firefox is an ok browser, but it seriously needs to address 2 things:
1) "It looks like you have not been using firefox in a while. Would you like to clean up the profile?" We seriously need a way to disable this annoying prompt.
2) Matrix mode: It is becoming more common to have to use 50+ tabs for casual users of the web. I, myself, have had over 1,500 tabs open at once. Firefox developers, could you please consider the option to add a matrix mode for viewing webpages?
Example: User needs to view a diagram on 1 side of monitor, & view the help video side by side. They can't.
So, they tear off a firefox tab & now they have multiple firefox windows open side-by-side.
Windows 10 allows you to matrix up to 4 application windows on the screen to take advantage of the screen size.
Why can't Firefox do this too?
I would love being able to view a video in 1 window, while checking my email in another, while working on a spreadsheet on another, and doing online docs on the 4th.
Come to think of it, why can't Firefox make a matrix mode that can adjust up to 9 separate windows?
They have the new tab window, that displays more windows as you screen area increases. (9/12/etc).
In fact, it would be great if the new tab window could open all sites in a single window, matrix mode, so you can view all the websites you have pinned without having to go through so many tabs.
Hoping Firefox developers can read this. It would save soooo much time on the web, especially during research.
You have a new tab page that looks like matrix mode, but you have to have a separate tab open for each site you open on the new tab page. Can we have a way to open all the sites inside a single page, with the option to tear a tab out if we need?
I am sure this would save others lots of time, as well!!!!
