Windows 7: Mozilla launches Firefox 4

Well they must be running separately somehow considering FF4 no longer attempts to
import my exts from 3.6.16 when launching - as it did originally when I tried to just launch it from another drive.

Both browsers retain their themes (FF4 only keeps it standard skin) when launched separately - FF3 has all add-ons intact whereas FF4 goes back to default (besides cooliris)

so not too sure as to what is causing this impotence to configure FF4 and keep the settings.

regardless I will eventually move to FF4, but I'll miss my Chromifox basic

seekermeister Yes I did. It would not accept the changes. Went back to ff 3.5.18 and everything works fine.

Did you create the new profile by copying the old one? That might have created some dependencies. I have two profiles and they are completely distinct they share nothing, at all.

But even if your profiles are separate, you have to make sure you don't ever accidentally launch with the wrong one.

Anyway nothing I want to to dwell on. Profiles work for me and keeping two copies is a very temporary situation.

Thanks, I downloaded this and I prefer it to the older versions, GUI wise.

the GUI reminds me of Opera for some reason - but I quite can't place it

anyways - I am a FF fan and will eventually move to 4

Went through Help > Check for updates, and look what popped up! I think this is pretty funny--seems a bit overdone. And 6x as fast?

They are nothing alike - one ribbon says Menu, the other says Firefox

Seriously, both of these browsers have been 'borrowing' ideas from each other for quite awhile now. And since I swap between both alternatively as my main browser, someone must be doing something right.

In the real world however, while it it does feel quicker than 3.6 - it's nowhere near x6 , or x4 , or even x2...

Just a footnote to this, I found all but one of the plugins I was using previously to installing ff4 work just fine with it, I had to download this add-on to make them active again though.

It was supposed to be a beta tool apparently, but it still serves it's purpose just fine for reactiving all the plugins ff4 is shutting down for no apparent reason.
