SPDY Issues: [13] [14] [15] [16] [17]

Thumbnails are blank: Possibly just a user education issue [18] [19] [20] [21] [22]


New Tab: Generally unfavorable due in part to user education as displayed here "I submitted sad feedback because I want blank page when opening new tab. Should have read help first. Past history now turned off now very happy thanks Firefox"

Bad: 76% [23] [24] [25]

Love it: 10%

  • Hey, Your new view with the tabs, I love it! I switched to Safari b/c of this, but now I'm back! Great change!
  • Love the new tab setup!!! Smart/great thinken
  • the new tab feature is GREAT
  • Firefox just updated and when I went to open a new tab I saw the new feature where the sites I visit frequently are displayed on the screen as an option to be selected from. What a great idea it is to include this. Thanks.

Improvements: 10% "Can we make the new tab interface more configurable? I want the option to load my home page when opening a new tab. Or I want to be able to choose what sites display more easily. Maybe an "Add to tab page" option on bookmarks?"

Home page: Generally unfavorable. Lots of confusing with new tab page.

Bad: [26] [27]

Love it:

  • i liked the 'download' in the new home page, so i must not go to 'tools' first :)
  • the new homepage layout is sleek and easy to get to settings and addons
  • I liked the new tab :D and the new "about:home" page !! Keep it up with your fire firefox !! :D :D


  • Update on health/status of daily beta builds
    • Rapid Betas will be delayed by 6 weeks currently due to long pole (RelEng and QA/Automation) schedule risk because of higher priorities
