FireFox default theme looks horrible and I despise that the loading of content is text in the lower right hand corner, I can't even turn it off. I won't go back to 3.6 because I've managed to get 4.0 to have a new flow for me but I'll continue to grip until my previous add-ons are updated including theme. I'm going to give the developers one more week until I begin emailing their ass.

Dear JerometheGiraff,
It is a fact that many add-ons and extensions have not been up to par with FF4! The beauty and the attraction of FF were partly(if not mainly) the add-ons! I miss the color tabs and a few more security add-ons!
Regards,
Sreedhav

This is one of the funniest post I've seen here!
Let's see: free browser, free themes, free add-ons, and you think they care 'bout you complaining in email... Nothing personal, but let us know how this works out for you.

Regards-
agree most of those emails will go straight into the trash. now add mr tech toolkit(for some compatibility issues), nightly tester tools(for some compatiblity issues), add colorful tabs(for your colorful tabs).

FF big draw is the Add-ons. Still waiting on a bunch for FF 4.0 to be updated. If each of these FF version break a lot of Add-ons you can kiss FF good bye.

I understand perfectly. They knew that FireFox 4 Final was around the corner and they didn't make previsions that a few days after it's final release they would have update complete, FireFox 4.0 final wasn't just dumped on their lap the last minute.

After many years with FF I have moved to Chrome. This latest version (4) lost me completely.

They have no obligation to continue updating it for every Firefox release. There is also such a thing as one-time authors-- they make an addon and then move on (never had any intent to update it.)

Besides, all you have to do is change the maxversion tag on an extension to get it listed as enabled in a new release of Firefox, but there's no guarantee that it will work as it did in the old Firefox version though.

4.0 has been out for a week already and I haven't even looked at it still running 3.6 here. FF takes a back seat to IE 9, Opera 11 as the first alternate, Ice Weasel for Windows, and 3.6.

FF tends to lose mainly for second place due to being Google and ask only while Bing can be added to Opera. Yet people are still rushing at the latest 4.0 release apparently. Neowin.net - Firefox 4 downloads top 7 million in 24 hours

I don't know about your machine.... but on mine, Bing is one of the search options by default, even though Google is "First choice" until you change it.

I know they are not under any obligation to update. I just want to see my addons updated and besides the addons I use I doubt that they are going to abandon version 4.0.
