    Why does the Mac Firefox sucks so much balls? crashes everyday, memory leak like nuts. looks like Camino or even Safari works better on my system. is it the browser sucking or is there something wrong with my OS?

    btw, what OS cleanup/optimization app do you guys use?

    thanks

    Safari/Pith Helmet/Inquisitor.

    You'll get a lot of replies saying the same thing.

    it's not your system, Firefox blows even worse on a mac than on a pc.
    Camino/Safari are what I use

    I'm a diehard Firefox user on PC but it never clicked for me on OSX (although I've never had any of the problems you're describing).

    I tried Opera for awhile but eventually started using Camino and I absolutely love it.

    I use Safari. Use Firefox when I wanna use Stumbleupon or can't view a site with Safari (some sites have shitty programmers that don't know how to program and are somehow able to make a site that works only with IE).

    actually the purpose of this thread was to complain about firefox and ask if anyone else has the problem. besides, i asked three questions:

    1) what browser do you use?
    2) is it just me or mac firefox sucks?
    3) what OSX cleanup app do you use?


    so please boy, either contribute to the thread, or stop the sarcasm and :gtfo: from this thread

    Was using Firefox till it started crashing everytime I wanted to do a reboot. So now I'm just sticking with Safari which seems to do everything fine. I just miss the built in EXIF viewer that you can install for Firefox.
