The bugs are well documented on Mozilla's developer web site and in other placers. If IGP wants to download development software then he should rtfm.

Contravenes the 'guidance for message board use' so don't tell the 'Board Police'

Been using FF 20 in Beta for many months now.

No probs with any site load at all on ten year old XP desktop, W7 Desktop or W7 laptop...

Mozilla have released a new version of Firefox , 20.0.

If you have automatic updating enabled then you may have this update by now.
If not .... wait.

There is a bug which can cause a site to be very slow to load. A slow loading site one time can be near instant the next and vice versa, the bug is random and tied to the browser not the site.

The download manager has been radically changed. In some ways it is an improvement. It can be set to go back to the old manager though.

2.0 has been revised to provide much better in browser support for movies and sound ( H.264 ). At the same time accessing pages using Flash can be a bit of a mess.

Other reported bugs included losing bookmarks and pdf files not displaying correctly.

There were similar problems when 19.0 came out and were fixed within a month.
