    5 are not compatible with the latest version of Firefox. Thank you, morrons of mozilla for your stupid development cycle that kills compatibility and makes us LOVE Chromium/Chrome! Google loves you!

    If Firefox didn’t run so slow and bloated these days, I might actually look into using these.

    Ever since I installed Firebug my Firefox is running like a turtle. Not only that, it’s using memory like crazy. I don’t know if it’s the new version of Firefox (that seems to increase by 1 every other week) or the add-on, but I’m sure that the add-on is not helping.

    I’m now mostly a chrome user.
