Yeah, it's true.
You must disable addon compatibility check to make your addons work. Create a new value in 'about:config'. Name it 'extensions.checkCompatibility.4.0b' and set it to 'false'

An important new feature is related to the tailoring of Firefox 4.0 to Windows 7, and the operating system’s Natural User Interface (NUI), namely multi-touch capabilities.

“Web authors can now get touch events from Firefox users on Windows 7 machines,” Mozilla stated.

The company noted that Beta 3 also adds “a new way of representing values in JavaScript that allows Firefox to execute heavy, numeric code (used for things like graphics and animations) more efficiently.”

Essentially, starting with Beta 3, Firefox 4.0 will allow users running Windows 7 on touch-capable hardware to virtually get a “hands-on” experience for the open source browser.

“Experimental support for touch events is added in Gecko 2.0. These allow you to track the movement of the user's finger on a touch screen, monitoring the raw touch events generated by the system,” Mozilla explained.

Thanks for the info. Downloading now.

EDIT:
Guess Beta 3 will take a bit of getting used to.
The Open in New Window was the first option and Open in New Tab was the second option till now when right clicking a link in Firefox, but in Beta 3 the order has been reversed.
I keep clicking the second option out of habit

I'm using MSE Beta. I'll have to look into it further. Sometimes goes for up to 30 seconds. HD running full bore.
