#15 "upgrade" was a mistake for me

After downloading and installing I've had many problems including (1) xp home reports that it has recovered from a serious error [3 times so far, only the last one reported to MS] (2) page up/down erratic in function, though they work fine in mozilla 1.7.13 (3) It allowed an "hourly prize notification" immediatly after I validated my mozillazine membership, even though I had popups blocked ...and I fear I've experienced only the tip of this iceberg.

My above problems, plus the vagueness of the "history" screen and the impossibility of saving the firefox history file as decypherable ascii (an issue that has bugged me for too long anyway) and the fact that I've used, and can use again, other browsers without the hassels of FireFox are some of the reasons why I'm giving up on firefox.
