Back in the day, when the internet was just a wee babe, the browser of the day was Explorer.
Now mind you, I didn’t mind the program, and it was what I chose for all my surfing needs, such as they were. Many more browsers came and went, and one particular one proved to be better for me and I divorced Explorer.
Mozilla Firefox, or simply Firefox as it was soon known as, took it’s place in my internet world.
That was, oh about 5 years ago that I made the switch and I haven’t looked back. In fact, I haven’t upgraded it either. Until last night.
Yeah, I was still on version 3.6 or something. It’s currently on version 10.
No, no, no, I’m not slow, I just resist change, and I was quite comfortable with the old version. A few years ago Rick put a newer version on my laptop and I HATED IT! I didn’t like that my normal buttons weren’t where they were supposed to be and the look… well, frankly it didn’t give me any “wow” factor. I like wow factor when I decide to change things. And I wasn’t getting any.
But Firefox has really been getting aggressive lately with their annoying pop-up’s to change to the latest and greatest version, so I finally gave in.
And my review? Meh, big deal. No flashing lights, no bling, no cool graphics. Actually, there is less to it than the old version I am used to.
Biggest peeve? Having to get used to where everything is now. I get to “design” where I want everything. Cripes, I liked how the old version did that for me. I’m a person of routine, remember? My buttons aren’t where they are supposed to be any more so half the time I’m clicking out of a page and going to my home page when I wanted to see my favorites.
Gawds, am I a complainer lately. I blame it on pre-menopause. Wait until you read that post… It’ll be a doozie!

You’re entitled to complain. You’re you 🙂 I also don’t like change. Give me routine any day 🙂
OCD helps 😉
I update mine when I HAVE to, and all I notice is that they seem to be wanting to be exactly like IE.
Hmmmmm…..a Larson that resists change? Not sure I’m familiar with the concept……hahahaha!
Maybe it’s a conspiracy…
And we keep passing it on to future generations… poor kids 😉
Indeed. It just upgraded itself this morning when I started it up. Buttheads!
Saw this today and thought of you right away. *Note* – I don’t believe that the squirrel was harmed in any way but this is too funny!
OMG, that is hilarious!
