I didn't pledge. Downloads are overloaded as of this post time. So I'll wait for another day.
The only easy day was yesterday.

That was a quick 20 seconds. Now I'll wait 3 months before installing it, if ever. :thumbsup:

Had to keep going back to the server since 10am Pacific time, but finally got to the download page at 4pm CDT. Only one add-on ended up being incompatible! The claim that it is faster seems (without using a stopwatch) true enough.

I have been using it since RC2(beta) and my my did it boost speed from FF2. I have yet to install my copy of the full version of FF3. I wonder if it will be any faster than the beta?

Animal why would you NOT want to install it? If you use firefox 2 its like adding a couple of turbo's to your browsing and load times plus it uses wayy less memory without the memory lock too!

I honored it! It's awesome, but what I hate and I do this everytime before the final version is released. I play with the betas, so there is less excitement for when I download the final version. :thumbsup:

I'm not fond of it so far. I like the looks, but I don't like the new address bar finisher thing. When I go to type in bleepingcomputer, the first few are usually somewhere in the hardware forums, when I like to go to the front page first. Maybe I spend too much time in Hardware though XD .

My big problem with it though, is that for some reason every time I check my gmail account, when I try to go to a different site or exit the window, mozilla stops responding. Anyone know how to fix this? Gmail.com is the only site so far that it does this too me.

I've been using Mozilla firefox for years, and so far this has been a bit disappointing. I guess they'll probably fix it up though.

I can't use my favorite theme anymore :thumbsup:



EDIT:
Never saw this before installing FF 3. Is this one of the new features?
