    Accompany Firefox since version 2. Minefield met in version 3, and since then whenever there is a newer version, I’m using and comparing with the past and thinking of improvements for the future.

    The team at Mozilla is to be congratulated for the excellent work carried out Firefox 4. Font rendering is perfect, exceeding all other browsers.

    But there are some problems that make me sad with Firefox 4, including the worst thing is that the startup is slow.
    Another thing that is slow is the time to load the main page of ‘Add-ons Manager. It takes too long to open, over 45s, this is unacceptable for a posture of Firefox browser.
    A simple change, but it’d be nice, would be rounding the top edges of the ‘Add-ons Manager. A few more changes that would let Firefox 4 with a more modern look, it would change the windows ‘Options’, ‘History’, ‘Bookmark’ and ‘Downloads’ for tabs in the style of ‘Add-ons Manager’ (this is important). Another would be to modify the ‘Menu Bar’ when the browser is maximized, for just a menu that would open directly Button ‘Firefox’.

    I think that’s all for now.

    https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=629485 is now called “Show close window warning when closing the last window”.
    Some of the user comments, such as #18 and #33, show problems likely to annoy. But the developers seem so frazzled by the UX/UI unintended consequences that they are apparently ignoring those comments. Seems to come down to issues introduced by the new “stupid” home page, and the fact that this dialog button is labeled inaccurately:
    “Close Tabs”.
    It really means “Save and Quit”, as in the old Firefox 3.6. (In later releases, after 4.0, there may be no quit dialog at all, relying on session restore entirely.)
