Love v4, great work guys. The blurry font rendering is due to hardware acceleration enabled by default in Firefox 4 and is due to a problem with Microsoft's DirectWrite API. Till they get this fixed, I suggest GDI only for Firefox (turn HWA off). IE9 does not use DirectWrite for fonts so it looks better.

It is a very neat and clean look and extremely customisable. The pinned tabs feature is also very nice. And page loading is much quicker than v3. Most of my add-ons are now compatible within a couple of weeks, which is fine by me.

New Channels for Firefox Rapid Releases

New Channels for Firefox Rapid Releases

Posted by dsicore
April 13th, 2011 Firefox, Mozilla News

Following the amazing release of Firefox 4, Mozilla Firefox is moving to a rapid release development cycle to deliver new features, performance enhancements and security updates and stability improvements to users faster.

Until now, there were three channels to test new features in Firefox:
  • Nightly Test Builds – Includes features not tested by Mozilla QA
  • Firefox Betas – Broadly test the stability of new features and improvements in the next version of Firefox
  • Firefox Final Releases – Delivers the polished and stable features in Firefox to hundreds of millions of users
We are making a change to deliver new releases of Firefox faster and give users more opportunities to participate in building Firefox.

Today, we launch the Aurora channel as part of a broader initiative to create channels which deliver features to users at various levels of quality and polish. The Aurora channel is where users can test the latest features and innovations. Users can expect an increase in polish from the raw, cutting edge features in our nightly builds. Aurora releases may not be as stable as beta or final releases.

This first Aurora release includes performance, security and stability improvements.
Aurora releases may not be as stable as beta or final releases. To that end this first Aurora release includes..... stability improvements.

It seems like 4.2a1pre is the only version with 64 bit support, so far nothing posted for version 5 or 6 on their website. At least not yet.

I can wait until a final version of one version or another is seen. Being that FF is a 3rd 3rd party browser It will wait!

Firefox crashes everytime I try to launch it.
It had too many tabs and it keeps crashing every time I try to launch it. Maybe there is a bug? I created another account and it works there well but I want it to work well on this account too. Turning the computer on and off didn't work.
