    They also said in the note file:

    "...we'd really rather you waited until 3.0b1 was officially announced, so the servers don't get overloaded and we don't have a bunch of extra work to do."


    So try to restrain yourselves. The new theme isn't in this one yet anyway. Also, be aware that it will hijack your FireFox 2.0's user profile, molesting your plugins/cookies/settings/etc, so if you do feel compelled to try it make a backup of ~/Library/Application Support/FireFox first.

    They seem to have broken 2.x badly of late, so perhaps v3 is the answer. FF has locked up on me much more after the last 2 updates (in the last 2 week) than ever before.

    I agree. 2.0 as a whole has been kind of a disaster. It usually crashes on me at least once a day.

    After my last update of FF I had multiple problems with my Mac Williams freezing. Solution, I used Safari, no problems since.

    Yup. Latest Firefox is allergic to Yahoo Mail on my iMac and Macbook running Leopard. :mad:

    i've had no problems at all with the last 2 updates. i wonder if it's an extension that's causing the crashes?

    Hmm...

    The new Aqua buttons definitely look A LOT better than those huge "blocks" used in 1 & 2, but still not quite as nice as those in Safari.

    It's definitely an improvement from Firefox 2. But Safari always seems to be one step ahead with the looks.

    No problem. I'm paying for my 1TB bandwidth a month, and no one is using it. So I thought I might aswell share it here.
