#41 Still Many Bugs

Unfortunately I am still finding many bugs while using Mozilla. Lots of times the browser crashes when mousing over DHTML events. Also, there are several feature-bugs that I've found.

It's nice to have an open-source alternative to IE, and I do think that Mozilla is very close to having an outstanding product, but I don't like using unstable products and I think many people are with me in that regard. I've tried to help submit bugs in the past, but doing that just seems futile, as nobody ever addresses them. For instance, the personal toolbar does not appear when a new window is opened via a javascript window.open command -- and if the user clicks View >> Show/Hide >> Personal Toolbar, nothing happens.

I still prefer Mozilla, but let me just say that if Internet Explorer released a new version with popup blocking capabilities built-in like Mozilla, I would switch back to IE in a heartbeat.
