Trending Topics/Issues in Rating Comments:
- UI Complaints
- Text Input
- Text Looks Jagged
Crashing (a concern with this update) isn’t being mentioned at all in the comments. we will see how this plays out over the next few days. There seems to be an issue with text input (words being duplicated, etc.)
We also have a smaller issue that is text appearing jagged in 15. Haven’t narrowed this down any, will be keeping an eye on it over the next 2-3 days.
The users love this release! It fixes nearly all of our main complaints from Firefox 14, plus improves startup speed significantly according to some users. Ratings are up dramatically in the past 48 hours as well.
