unresolved:​
  • A fix for incompatibility with the new Windows 11 22H2 Suggested Actions is known to cause pasting issues in Chromium applications. That’s Chromium bug 1379879 / Mozilla Bug 1798117, and we will be landing a workaround to avoid the Chromium bug on a future release. (still unresolved)

  • Fixed broken layout of datetime input when switching types (bug 1797139).

unresolved:​
  • We are investigating an increase in crashes reported by users with Intel Gemini Lake CPUs (fixed in 106.0.5).
106.0.5
  • Addresses a crash experienced by users with Intel Gemini Lake CPUs.

Version 106.0.2 seems to be the only feature hotfix this time around, as FF106 introduced PDF editing without relying on BLINK/chromium. Which was long overdue, but that seems to be one of the few things that stand out to me.

I also use Firefox, since well before chromium was even a project. But It does boggle me what all these crashes happen. Mind you, I never had any of these issues or crashes, but for all I know it could also be due to my numerous changes in about:config and not knowing which one fixed it/worked around it without even realizing it throughout the years.

I told you already before that even Edge has similar bug fixes every week again, just check release notes, so what does that mean about the quality development of Edge ;)

I am also an long time user of FF, my age is really same (year of birth: 1978), but I can't agree for feeling any kind of shame regarding Firefox nor Mozilla, IMO.
It's simple like that, just choose a different web browser and move on... No need for complaints, but feel free to start an extra thread in this forums section of Firefox.
I apologise if I polluted the thread, or went off-topic, it was not my intention.
Didn't want to start any argument and I completely agree with you, in the end, it is just a tool and everyone must use the right tool for the job or the one that works best for them.
