Indeed.

(64 bit FF shown above)

And with the new Flash x64 Preview out it makes running the 64 bit version worthwhile. The two add-ons I use are compatible with FF x64, fortunately.

I think what's happened is that the need for a bugfix pushed Beta 6 to Beta 7, because they had to add a release in there. So what WAS Beta 6 is being renamed Beta 7, NOT the Beta 6 we actually got.

On a side note, Beta 5 ran perfectly for mine, Beta 6 crashed my entire system within 5 minutes of updating, so I am back on Beta 5.

It works fine. I played with it a bit a while ago and today dusted it off to be my everyday browser after the Flash x64 preview came out.

You're quite welcome. I hope you have as much fun with it as I'm having. It's really great for a pre beta...heck...it's pretty good for an RTM!

My biggest issue is with sites that combine flash and Java like MSNBC. As long as the video is in full screen (dual monitor setup) the browser in the other screen works flawlessly. Once I put the video in windowed mode, the browser on the other screen locks up (not so much a lock up but choppy enough it might as well be) until I go full screen again.

I don't have this problem on YouTube or most other Flash video sites.
