I use Firefox daily on my XP machine and thought about installing on my Vista machine. Anyone use it yet??

I use Ff with Vista Home Premium without any problems.
The only easy day was yesterday.

I run Vista 32-bit and Firefox (with a bunch of plugins) and everything works groovy.

I ran FF on both the 32bit and 64 bit betas of Vista Ultimate. It worked, Internet Exploder 7 -- well, it did not.
The name says it all -- 59 and holding permanently

Firefox, and almost any browser using it's core...like Netscape, works in Vista 32 and 64-bit.

As with any other program on Vista, check to be sure that any plug-ins/extensions are Vista compatible. Other than that, I've been using Firefox on Vista since June of 2006 without any issues.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
