The only problem I see in version 4: Not all the add-ons I use since version 2 are compatible ... yet! As you can see, there are no problems with Firefox itself!

Firefox 4 beta.

This new Firefox browser is probably the best in a long line of browsers.

All my addon's seem to work and I like the speed increase too, very happy with it, I hope they don't mess it up on final release!!

Try this Kirk, if you cant wait: disabling extension compatibility check

Thanks for the advice! I must confess, however, that I already knew that. Actually I'm just getting ready to migrate to version 4, and this drawback is not really a problem.

this beta version installs separately or over the existing version?

I'm using it, It's alright, nothing special *shrug* a few hanging issues at the moment, but I;m sure that will be ironed out by final. I have always used Firefox, and I won't change out, but apart from Direct2D and HTML5 it's not a massive leap forward. I don't like the UI either.

@maranello, it will install along side, but will use your FF profile, so your awesomebar etc. will remember everything you did on the 3.* version
