What happened to FireFox? Has it grown to bloated and buggy? 2.0.0.3 crashed way too often. I just upgraded to 2.0.04 and now many pages are not loading CSS (style sheets). I've disabled all extensions, but it didn't help. Anyone else having CSS issues with 2.0.0.4?

*admin thinks he's moving to Opera or Maxthon for his default browser.

I think it might just be you (or the fact that you are running Vista). 2.0.0.3 was perfectly stable for me. The only problem I've had with 2.0.0.4 is a problem with the Java Console extension. (It's not just me either, Mozilla admits in the release notes that they messed up on this, but Sun Microsystems is going to be the one to do something about it: they are releasing a patch soon to make the Java Console compatible with 2.0.0.4.) The release notes imply that 2.0.0.4 was just sort of a quick fix for some Vista and security issues though, and hopefully we can expect a more polished release soon.

Whenever I open firefox 2.0.0.4 , it automatically opens one more welcome bar which I am not expected. Is there any away to disappear that one?

I have this exact same problem! CSS doesn't load on certain pages, like weather.com and news.yahoo.com. I checked Fiddler, there are no HTTP errors, it's just the browser is failing to apply certain CSS stylesheets.

This is a severe bug, I'm going to have to try finding an older version to downgrade to now. I'm running Vista, but I don't see how this would be related to that. It appears to be a bug in the browser engine itself.

Those websites you mention work fine for me. I'm running XP Home SP2. This seems to hint that this may be a Vista-specific problem. However, since hayabusa_mike hasn't encountered problems on Vista, there must be more to it than that... The best thing to do is send a bug report into Mozilla to help them get this sorted.

I'm personally experiencing frequent crashes, thinking about giving Opera a chance myself since I'd take stability over speed any day.
I must say I have never heard of Maxtor, is it new?
