    4.0.0 was carrying several bugs. Mozilla doesn't test enough before releasing
    4.0.1 brought the fixes two or three weeks later.Meanwhile I had to get back to 3.6. And SqliteManager was not working any longer in 3.6

    - Pages were often auto refreshing, resulting in a major problem on certain sales pages.
    - Last session restore: empty instances were opening instead of tabs, on opening the soft.
    - The address bar's combo was empty, without the suggestions.
    - They loose a bunch of space, cause the address bar could be aside the menu bar (IE9 gets this). It should be an option.
    + minor bugs

    A real plus in 4.0.1: FireFox's process auto terminates much faster. Interesting on shutting down the computer.

      I like this version of firefox. I was using Opera until Firefox 4 came and I am happy up to now.

          Arbitrary relocation of Navigation Toolbar items that cannot be changed, for example "Home" button. Many of the other button locations can be changed by user, but i can't find how to put the "Home" button back where it was. Why is there no "GO" button for the address window?

            [Reason I choose this answer (Can't really tell...) is the fact that, after years of using FF faithfully, it started to become buggier and buggier. One example, I have this TV program page I look up every day and despite the fact I always install the latest Flash, Shockwave, Silverlight and Java versions, from FF version 3.6 on, this page started not to be correctly rendered any more (kind of ugly formatted text version).
            IE (including v.9), Chrome, even Maxthon have no problem with this same page. By the way, If Maxthon 3 could read all the Maxthon 2 settings and saved stuff, I would definitely go for it. It comes with lots of bells ans whistles to choose from, without having to go for numerous add-on's. Reasons are that Chrome seems the worst memory hog to me while (can't perform lots of editing in Office - usually involving a certain amount of pictures - without encountering some kind of trouble),while after a very satisfying short period of use, IE9 started to develop some strange behaviors (for example in the Yahoo Mail! Beta, whenever I delete a Mail in "Show Preview" mode, it jumps down four pages). But then, this is Vista (with all SPs and updates installed) and it looks like it hates its own MS products when it deems them "too recent" (IE9) or "too old" (Office XP which crashes on a more than daily basis).
            Conclusion : a rather disappointing Web browser experience for this old retired IT guy!:rolleyes:

                  I am waiting for FF 6 LOL
                  LOL....I like it!!!

                  Haven't installed it yet, still using 3.6 something or the other. Reason being; I've read too many complaints, users reporting they don't like the changes, etc.

                  I've always maintained a policy of...'if it ain't broke, it doesn't need fixing!'

                  Same applies with FF. I'm happy, so why change!

                  Guess I'll have to sooner or later. By then though, hopefully all the bugs will be have been eradicated and some of the major complaints addressed.

                  We live in hope!! :rolleyes:

                  Cheers all.....Jim

                    Well, looks as though my original decision may have been vindicated.

                    I was amazed to find a beta version of FF 5 is available already!!

                    Crikey, that must be some kind of record....although, Chrome would be hard to beat in that department!

                      Gave it a quick try , but will be staying with Chrome.
                      Chromes method of small improvements, instead of larger workovers as in FF seems to suit us better.
                      The uncluttered page from the initial installation is better with chrome and there are plenty of addons now available
                      although the ones i've used seem to have disappeared between versions 10 and 12.(maybe compatabilty problems)
                      Maybe i could play around with FF to appear like Chrome but why bother when there are no other benefits for me.
