New Firefox release (20) ... bugs

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.
