I have only 3 issues with Firefox, and none of them were addressed with the new firefox.

1. Firefox is relatively slow.
2. You can't disable new windows (tabs only no matter what, plz).
3. No anti-aliasing for normal text sizes. - Whoops, nevermind. It does now :)

I disabled new windows. All new window links open in new tabs. Try Tab mix plus, it's a great extension.

looks good... just installed it.... cant wait for the official release... then maybe all my addons will b compatible.
only a few i have installed aren't & they aint that important at the moment.

oh, & for the record... firefox is WAY faster for me than IE... the only thing thats a little slower is it starting up... but its not slow enough for me 2 complain... + 3 may fix that a bit more!!!

all my addons are compatible, although i dont use many. i was on beta 5, and the auto update took me to RC1.

the only addons that dont work for me are:

fasterfox
hyperwords
piclens
tab x

other than that everything works great.....

just wondering... if anyone knows about the pipelining performance mod... there's an additional line which mentions pipelining ssl connections.... i left that disabled coz i was unsure whether it may send multiple connections while im paying for something with my cred card or something... if anyone knows otherwise please let me know, otherwise i'll leave it disabled.....

go to speed test and check your connection, it could be the extentions you were running aswell.

There is a Optimization Guide to enhance the capability of this browser.

Yes, but this extension doesn't work with FF3 RC1, I try load it thru Nightly Tester Tools extension, but it does´t work still... How I can use this perfect extension (Tab Mix Plus) with FF3 RC1?
