er, no, I don't.  He did't actually seem to be having any problems with it - 
he just said it wasn't up to snuff compared to recent offerings like Chrome.  
Well, of course it isn't, because he's using the LTS.  If he compared the 
_current_ firefox, I think he wouldn't feel the same way.  But neither that 
version of Firefox, nor Chrome, are likely to be on most corporate desktops.
