Feedback Summary


Firefox 15:

  • Norton was an issue for a day but should be updated (still getting some traffic -- there's Norton for Mac?!).
  • Slow/jerky scrolling [1] (maybe. We haven't seen it on SUMO, just input)
  • Bookmarks not visible on the bookmarks toolbar (some mentions of all toolbars missing): [2][3][4][5][6][7]. This may not be Firefox 15 specific (but there are definitely more mentions of it in 15 than 14)
