How did you get the menu over to the right? - I like that.
Now get the forward/back arrows over to the right and you win the layout prize of the day.
actually get the menu toolbar back to the top where it belongs, the tabbar on it's own line and then ie9 will be halfway to being ok.

Why wait? The preview works now, in all of IE8 and IE9 64 bit and the Firefox 4 x64 beta/nightly build. Just download and install the appropriate one, or both if using IE and Firefox.

Um, Your screnshoot matches what I see? It says you can't make IE (64 bit) the default browser and make default is greyed out. So how do you make it default if you can't click the button?
It's greyed out because I already clicked it, making IE9 64-bit the default.

Don't wait, do it now, get your 64bit flash player - Square - today.

It came out on the 15th September.

I set IE9 as default:

If the 64 bit is open, click on a link in an email, it opens in the 64 bit browser in a new tab. This leads me to believe the 64 bit is the default.

If no browsers are open, the link is opened in the 32 bit browser, leading me to believe the 32 bit browser is the default.

This might explain the difference in results when trying to set IE 9 64 bit as default - or not.
Thats what I'm seeing too, if IE 9 64 bit is already open links will just open a new tab. But is every other senario IE 9 32 bit opens, so that would indicate to me that the 32 bit version is the default.
The beauty of betas.

I'll just use it in it's default setup to start with to see how it goes before I do any alterations.
After posting I had had no issues with IE9 the other day, I found a bank site yesterday that wouldn't function properly in IE9. I couldn't expand a monthly statement. I could expand it, but not print it w/Minefield beta.

Your cautious approach is to be commended, may save troubles down the road.
All in all, I like 9.
