    It doesn't work with some sites, though, and keeps giving me obscure error messages.

      I havent had a problem with it yet, definately loads up addons quicker on startup, really dig the toolbar layout, and it looks preeewwdddyyyy.

      Seems to browse/render a little bit quicker than before.

        I dont like it at all, of I wanted Chrome I would have got Chrome, the refresh button is hard to find, as is the home page, and why would I want my Tabs above everything else it just means I have to travel further.


        Im changing back unless there is a way to make it appear like the old version.

          I think I like it. It does appear quicker. Once I found the Home Page and Refresh icons all is good. To move the tabs go to View > Toolbars and remove the tick from Tabs on Top

            Yeah I have just done this and add the home page, refresh and downloads buttons to the top left side of the browser where I like them. Its not too bad now.


            I still am having trouble with the open in new tab button being above the open in new window on right click as this was reversed before. but I will get used to that.

              Still very ram heavy?

                Mixed feelings. Don't like the tab layout, but that could just be not liking something different. Don't care about refresh - that's what cmd+R is for. It's bombed a couple of times with a few tabs of youTube running but apart from that seems stable. Don't hate it enough to roll back yet.

                  imho firefox lost the plot about version 2.0 (i was a user between 0.2 back when it was called phoenix up to 3.something)

                  instability, memory leaks, lack of tab isolation (1 tab crash/lock up = byebye browser), still no group policy ADM templates, and now the crap with trying to ram webM down people's throats.

                  If you're looking for something better without the google big-brother shit, check out chromium (the open source version of chrome).


                  if they can get tab isolation support in Firefox and support the actual codecs i have available on my box rather than push a religious agenda, then maybe i'll be swayed back. until then....


                  (I have v4 installed on 3 machines. its "meh", even compared to IE9 - which is actually pretty good. oh how the mighty have fallen).

                    On my old browser if I typed something in the address bar such as Perthstreetbikes, then I would automatically go to that page. If I do it now it goes to a google search page and then I have to click the result I want.


                    Does anyone know how to fix this?

                          it's driving me nuts! When you right click on a link, the box used to come up and "open in a new tab" used to be the second line down. But now it's on top so I keep opening things in a new window!! *rages some more before finally getting used to the new setting* haha

                            Those things do not have anything near the power of the NoScript ad ons *hugs his Firefox* I like how FF4 looks more "Windows 7"'ish. This is a plus at home where I have Windows 7. Under Win XP at work it looks a little strange though... Sitting at around 600mb of ram used for 15 windows open... 8 of which are Youtube heh

                              True. But I can browse the web without that. Firefox seem to be tacking heaps of junk onto a browser without fixing the actual foundations first.

                              When the browser chews so much ram and doesnt even isolate tabs the ability to add even more third party junk on top just doesn't do much for me. Pretty sure noscript and the like are ported to chrome and safari now too.
