    Nice.

    Bin using version 2 and stayed well away from the beta versions and even the first RC1 after having mounds of extension trouble but now I feel the time is right for a switch!
    Tho I'm discovering a few bugs already....

    As for extensions (besides i.e. bookmark extensions which probably won't work because the bookmark engine was changed in Fx 3)

    Location Bar: about:config
    Rightclick -> New -> Boolean
    Name: extensions.checkCompatibility
    Value: false

    Should work with almost all extensions.

    And the smilies work like they should. Are you using NoScript or disabled JavaScript?

    Hmm I noticed my Foxmarks extension got a little confused but by telling it to re-download them from the server it fixed that. :cool:

    Extensions wise there's a couple I miss, namely Google Toolbar and Tab Mix Plus :(. I can wait for upgrades to those though.

    As for the icons you were right. My NoScript had blocked the litttle Yahooapis.com link.:banghead:
    Thanks Man :D:D:toast:
