    Great, I found that 2.0 was horribly buggy. I hope this gets me back from safari.

    Inquisitor pulled me over to Safari, but I'm sure I'll continue to be back and forth to/from FF at some point. :)

    It's because it's not officially released, yet, I guess... Most likely are they preparing for the release, and since FF comes in several languages for multiple systems, getting everything ready takes some time. The US English version is, usually, one of the first to be put on the ftp server, though...

    It's officially up now...Linky.

    For most OS X users, it just looks like it's a handful of bug fixes.

    That was quick... :)

    I was looking just minutes before posting the above and then it was still at 2.0.0.1.

    Still not available through the update function within FF, though...

    u will have to wait for 3.0, 0.0.x is mostly bug fix or security fix, no any major change.

    Yeah, same. I've been using OmniWeb lately though, but I'll download this anyway to stay updated.

    Thanks :)

    I'm new to Macs (just 2 weeks into it), and gave up on Safari after 2 days for one simple thing. In FF, if I hover over a link, the actual link location/file shows up in the status bar. I couldn't find anything in Safari to easily tell me what I was actually clicking on. Is there an equivalent Safari option?

    Try View -> Show Status Bar? My status bar shows me links when I hover. Unless I misunderstand.

    Has anyone had problems in the past with your keyboard not working in Firefox after a video or something has played? Not sure what exactly happens, but I know I've had that problem...

    Maybe this will fix that bug.

    Not a video, but usually after something on the page uses flash or shockwave. Can't use the keyboard after that; have to restart firefox. Very annoying to say the least. Hopefully this new update fixes it.

    No misunderstanding. Thats it... I guess I didn't look hard enough (not that its hard to find... just me being dense). Thanks.

    Downloaded. Hoping this version doesn't crash on me (or could it be the extension/theme?).
