    so far my only problem is that when you search for text within a page there are no "find next" and "find previous" buttons... makes it sort of useless. Unless I'm completely missing something.

    But other than that it's quite good, although having the little "x" to close each tab on that specific tab is rather annoying too.

    Apple-F and Apple-G work just like in most Mac programs, and also you should have Next and Previous buttons to the right of the Find bar that appears along the bottom of the browser window. Those buttons will only be highlighted when you have a search entered.

    Weird, major problems with 2.0b.

    I have major problems with the 2.0 Beta. Any window besides the main browser window I try to open (Preferences, Add Ons, etc.) never shows up, and in the "Window" menu there's just a blank menu item for each one I try.

    No one else has this problem?
