Just wanna find out if anyone else had a similar situ.

cheers
I haven't had any problems like that. I can keep Firefox running for days/weeks/months with like 15-20 tabs open with no problem, and the new beta hasn't changed that.
Thanks....yea maybe....i think its my PC...

many thanks

See post #18 of the thread for the answer to your UI question.

Thanks Cloud.

Currently using it. Everything from my FF3.6.6 was copied to FF4. I moved the tab bar to the bottom and showed the menus unwrapped. It works OK. The only thing is that my Personal toolbar isn't showing... maybe because of my add-ons that were also copied... hmm... Also, finally some Win7 integration!

EDIT

DUH. "Bookmark toolbar" wasn't checked...

Well, the UI isn't as bad as screenshots made it look. Not sure what they have done to the fonts.... the text looks different somehow, can't quite put my finger on it. and I have no idea whether hardware acceleration is working or not Im going to assume yes, because Fraps went nuts the moment it was engaged

EDIT: Hmm... Graphic driver crash.... Windows recovered itself though (clever Windows) Not sure if it's FF related... but FF was the only program open at the time.
