Another Mozilla Firefox Update, Version 33.1 Released


Mozilla sent Firefox Version 33.1 to the release channel.  The update includes a number of new items and lists several known issues.

It appears that this update is to celebrate 10 years of Firefox.  It seems a rather artificial celebration since evolution of the name to Firefox was based on a trademark dispute and brand confusion.  (Yes, I started with Phoenix (2002), renamed Firebird (2003) and finally Firefox (2004).  Having become disenchanted with the "Rapid Release Program", I have changed to Pale Moon as my primary browser.)

What’s New

Known Issues

  • unresolved -- PDF.js: With some images, wrong colors could show up. Affects a very small number of PDF
  • unresolved -- Windows: Interface may be slow when typing or selecting text (1089183)
  • unresolved -- Windows: On some combination of hardware and drivers, some flickering can happen


To get the update now, select "Help" from the Firefox menu at the upper left of the browser window, then pick "About Firefox."  Mac users need to select "About Firefox" from the Firefox menu.

If you do not use the English language version, Fully Localized Versions are available for download.


Remember - "A day without laughter is a day wasted."
May the wind sing to you and the sun rise in your heart...
