Windows 7: Slight problems with Build 7201

Slight problems with Build 7201

I'm having slight problems with Build 7201.. Nothing that was not worked around, or fixable, but still problems. I might find harder ones later though.

When I installed and used the RC. everything went fine, downloading FF3.5b4 was fine, getting add-on's for my FireFox was fine, getting adobe flash player, Java, getting Woot watcher in my browser.

All the things listed above would not work because they didn't recognize my version of windows. I could not even install the Yahoo! Toolbar into my FireFox because it was not compatible with My current OS.

I was able to manually go to Yahoo, and Java, and Adobe Flash, and all the above but the Woot thing. And download either Win 7 versions, or Vista x64 ones and run them anyways. They are all working.

So, basically I'm wondering if they made the RC seem like Vista, or read to other programs differently because all the installs to it were a BREEZE and very easy. and I'm having to do a lot of extra searching for Build 7201.

anyone else have these issues?

I haven't had those problems but I always carried my addons and so from previous installs and initially from Vista so I have not had to install any from scratch yet.

ya it was weird because I didn't have any of these problems while in 7100 RC.

Other than that it seems brilliantly fast.. maybe a little smoother than the RC. I'm loving build 7201.

The smooth and fastness might be because I'm now on Raid0 with 640GB Blacks that are speedy little drives

Well everything I use has recognized my current version. You just have to be in IE to do it, firefox will not allow it to detect it correctly.

No problems with 7201 as you are having.
Just a few thoughts that may help:
-use IE8 to install everything not related to FF

Update to this version, it should have updated automatically:
Mozilla Firefox 3.5 Beta 99
Mozilla Firefox 3.5 Beta 99 - TechSpot Downloads

info about addons:
All-Glass Firefox v2! - Neowin Forums

sounds like an addon issue not really a W7 issue...
