Thanks Cloud. I sort of figured, but I was hoping for better functionality. What about with, say GMail?

If it had like a mail count and a drop down menu, that would be amazing...

i know what you mean, or even if it flashes its symbol if you have mail :P.

no an apptab does not really interface with the webpage you are on, that would require some possible need for interaction between web page owners and firefox. maybe not i dont know but it would dtill require some time :P

Beta 1 worked beautifully. The moment it updated to Beta 2, it died. So far, it's stayed dead. It's a shame they didn't stop at Beta 1.

I updated from Beta 1 to Beta 2 with no problems. What exactly do you mean by "died"??

I love it. Prefer tabs on top. Launches faster, trouble free.

BUT I can't live without my extensions so I won't use it much until they are ready.
