Firefox Goes to 11. Exactly. One Louder.

Nigel Tufnel: The numbers all go to eleven. Look, right across the board, eleven, eleven, eleven and...

Marty DiBergi: Oh, I see. And most amps go up to ten?

Nigel Tufnel: Exactly.

Marty DiBergi: Does that mean it's louder? Is it any louder?

Nigel Tufnel: Well, it's one louder, isn't it? It's not ten. You see, most blokes, you know, will be playing at ten. You're on ten here, all the way up, all the way up, all the way up, you're on ten on your guitar. Where can you go from there? Where?

Marty DiBergi: I don't know.

Nigel Tufnel: Nowhere. Exactly. What we do is, if we need that extra push over the cliff, you know what we do?

Marty DiBergi: Put it up to eleven.

Nigel Tufnel: Eleven. Exactly. One louder.

Marty DiBergi: Why don't you just make ten louder and make ten be the top number and make that a little louder?

Nigel Tufnel: [pause] These go to eleven.

That's the classic exchange from the 1984 film "This is Spinal Tap." Now Firefox has gone to 11.

For this new version, Firefox has learned some new tricks. The new Firefox will now support migration of bookmarks, history and cookies from Chrome. With Sync, now add-ons can be synced across all signed-in computers – no need to go hunting for each and every one on a fresh install.

    andy_newtonIt's so resource hog that it makes the hardware hot. So the fans had to spin faster to compensate, that's why it's so loud.

    been using Nightly for awhile at 13b1...it's only 64bit Firefox for Win7

    been working nicely for awhile with most addons working nicely...latest being DNT+

    I heard of Waterfox 64bit but I prefer to use regular version instead...and also wanted to see memory is problem....which I haven't ran into so far...

    Icepick, Waterfox works perfectly. All bookmarks, passwords, add ons, etc... And they carry over on your Ff profile so you don't need to reinstall anything.
