The nasty part is it is “opt-out” stile of option, pretty much as majority of options that are set by default in mozilla’s creatures. Any time I am configuring firefox I have to turn off pretty much all that is on by default.
The worst part hit me just recently: if you give firefox URL: http://[site], and [site] doesn’t listen to port 80, firefox without saying a word just gives you: https://[site]. It stopped being a tool that can be used by people (like me) who sometimes need to deal with problems.
But I still didn’t find acceptable replacement for firefox and thunderbird.
