    You can also get them from Firefox Nightly Builds which is a little better than using the ftp server as they're not load balanced.

    For those interested there are also Firefox UX Nightly Builds available. These contain the latest interface changes/experiments.

    Also, don't forget:

    Firefox Aurora
    Firefox Beta

    Not all of the channels get updated at the same time. At the moment, the release channel has moved on to version 12 and the Nightly channel is now on 15.0a1. The updated Aurora and Beta channels are available on the ftp server bit they'll be officially released in the coming days.

    If you really want to be on the 'bleeding edge' you can also try the latest-mozilla-inbound but for those. you'll have to use the ftp.

    Awesome Calico. I never knew they had an ftp server. I've been waiting for the new 13 beta since 12 is now live. I fired up my FlashFXP, copied your ftp address to it, went up a folder level and see it there. Gonna install now. Thanks!

    Firefox 12 seems to have issues with video playback. This could be an issue with firefox or it could be a combination of the issue with catalyst 12.4 since 12.4 can cause issues with flash video in firefox and chrome. I updated to the beta 13b1 and it solved the issue so if you do update to 12 and have issues just switch to the beta until 13 goes to release.

    I am running FF12 with AMD 12.1 with no problems with any video. I guess I wont be loading AMD 12.4 if it causes video problems.

    AMD 12.4 12.3 12.2 12.1, FF 12 or 13 all have no issues at all with video.

    Thanks, that's good to know. Someday I may move on up on the AMD side but it looks like mostly game improvements which I don't need. I need to review the release notes on those versions to see if their is any real improvement for video are compute power for my 6850 card.

    Mostly, the updates are to make games play well or fix minor discrepancies. Other than that, if you don't game, all versions of the drivers will seem exactly the same. It's always good to update though.

    I game, and I rarely if ever, even notice new improvement to games, although they do exist. Many of them are for X-Fire and I only have one card.

    Now go read the AMD release notes for 12.4 and tell me that flash video has no issue in firefox...

    They specifically mention that 12.4 has an issue with flash video in both firefox and chrome.

    Since upgrading to 12 I'm getting lots of Firefox crashes. Seems to happen on Google news a lot.

    You could have a corrupted add-on.

    You could try running FF in "Safe Mode".

    Another option:
    Try backing up your FF profile, deleting the original profile and doing a clean install of FF.
    You should be able to transfer your add-ons and bookmarks to the new FF profile.
