Anyone having problems with Firefox 6.0.1

Post by eazyGen »

Hi all,

I installed this a couple of days ago, but when I came to use it today it wouldn't connect to any web site. I couldn't see why.

I reinstalled 6.0 and all was well again.

Anyone experienced this?

I just upgraded to 6.0.1 and no problems.

I know I have occasional issues before where firefox seemed to have issue finding site after switching between wired and wireless networks, (yet IE and other browsers would get to them just fine).

I'm already on 6.0.2 (they're sure releasing a lot of versions recently, aren't they?!), but I had no problems with 6.0.1 for the brief time I used it (a week or two?).

It sounds like either a connection problem or a DNS problem, but I've never encountered such issues. You might want to upgrade to the latest (6.0.2 unless they release another one tonight!).

Don't feel bad, I remember using Lynx.

I never had to use that (although later when I had hosting that had SSH account I did) First browser I used was the "New" version of AOL that first had it back in 96 I think. Was all confused how to get anywhere... But knew it would be a hit once I did. Been in love since then, shut down my BBS because I had the line tied up all the time with me on the net.

I did upgrade to 6.0.2 of Firefox tonight, no problems here so far.

I too agree, Firefox new version is full of issues. So I quit to old Firefox browser which is 3.6. It works perfect in my PC.

Version 6.0.2 working perfectly for me too now. It has been a month or so I would say with no problems.
