    Has anybody noticed that when you are in the admin panel and browsing templates using Firefox, there is no search box in the template you look at, unlike IE that displays a search box to enter to text to search the template your looking at

            It's all good moaning about it here, but why not do something to help fix it?

              Thats probably because you using vB 3.5. I'm using vB 3.0.12 and I don't have a search box when viewed in Firefox 1.5.

              I have about 3 other nasty issues viewing my site with Firefox 1.5 also, that were not there in the previous version. Which seems to be related to vB 3.0 only and not vB 3.5. Gotta admit I'm not a big firefox fan anyway. There are a few features like "copy and paste" is rubbish in FF and doesn't always let you copy from one page and paste into another using your mouse only, unlike IE which always does no matter what. You have to use CTRL V instead half the time in FF to paste content back.

              But like already stated here, support for vB 3.0 is all but stopped now.

                No problems here:

                All active at the same time here...

                Mozilla: 47MB, two windows and 3+1 tabs running for hours
                Thunderbird: 34MB
                Firefox: 33MB one window, with 2 tabs

                Dual screen monitors with TV going on one monitor.

                About 20+/-2% CPU usage, 36 processes.

                I never have seen problems with Firefox. I use Mozilla for my primary browser because of the way it handles multiple logins for email etc. Otherwise, my son uses Firefox for hours on end as his primary without problems.

                        Gonna revive this thread to gripe BIG time..

                        OMG. The latest FireFox update (2.0.0.7) has THE WORST memory leak I've ever had EVER.

                        1 page open (this one right now) and I'm using 988MB of RAM.


                        Great..it just bloated to 992MB....and it's STILL CLIMBING....ARRRRRGHHH.

                          Most memory leaks are caused by extentions.

                          Run in safe-mode to confirm this.

                            I've been running the same extensions for the LONGEST time. Nothing's changed. Come to think about it, I uninstalled quite a few too.

                                I can't confirm it on a Mac.

                                (4 tabs open)
