    All of my extensions work except tab mix plus in which I updated from their main website. So far none of my themes work.

    Same hash as RC3 (it is RC3).

    FF3 is very fast, like to new theme, how everything turned out in general. Did I mention the ram usage has been cut down significantly?

    FF3 has been awesome since the betas! Extension wise all I absolutely need is AdBlock Plus and Print to PDF, which have been supported for quite a while so no problems there.

    Even though Foxytunes supports FF3, whenever i hover over the area in my toolbar in FF, the browser crashes.

    Other than that, I love it, super fast.

    Cant wait for my online college to support the browser so I dont have to log in with IE. :(

    So far, Firefox 3 is good, not great, but good. It still has some bugs to be worked out for example it took my bookmarks that I had from about 3 months ago (didn't use the ones I currently had in Firefox 2)... so I had to update them ALL.
