Windows 7: Firefox..

I haven't really noticed many problems with the firefox browser on Windows 7...and it's pretty much the only browser that I use. I've tried Chrome a few times...but the lack of add-on support is a killer for me. I just rely too much on my firefox add-ons to use other browsers.

3.5.2 ran so slow, allowed popups, crashed pages, ect so much I dropped it and transferred its bookmarks to my IE8, Chrome 3 beta, safari 4 and opera 10 beta installs. All run much better.

Wow, Firefox 3.5.2 is the best browser I've ever used, and I was a diehard IE user all the way to IE8! FWIW, I've observed none of the problems you mentioned. The addons I use are Adblock Plus, Download Helper, Google Toolbar, NoScript, and Xmarks.

I wish I knew. It's the one thing I still use IE8 for. I've never seen video "stop" in Firefox.

Ad-Block Plus

Chatzilla
FireBug
HTTPFox
Stylish

No issues with FF 3.5.2

I have been a happy FF user for about 4 years now and haven't noticed any of the issues in the previous posts. I tend to be a little bit conservative with my addons using only:

Bugmenot
betterprivacy
addblock plus
IE tab

if you experience pop-ups or an annoying pop-up blocker notification then your FF is not optimized as well as it can be. I experience NO, repeat NO, annoying popups and rarely a notification of blocked pop-ups. Recommend Highly the addblock plus....it works well.

Well, I'll be. This workaround that was just published on 8/22 seems to work:
