.....it does seem quicker

but i am finding the history a bit odd

Yeah, me too.
I type in www.mu.. and it tells the names of the bloody thread! Not sure I like it.

I didn't realise it was a new firefox, we just bought a new pooter and i thought it was something Vista had done to it.

haven't downloaded it yet - keeps popping up telling me it's available and I keep clicking "later".......

We've been beta testing it for months now and I love it. It's so much easier to use and the ability to just type search words into the address bar has been so much easier.

I like being able to type in a random thing I remember about a book marked page and the page appearing rather than me having to guess under what obscure file I shoved it into.
Like the back button too grin

History is taking some getting used to, but overall I like it.

Love it. Have you added add-ons?

Best ones so far are Colourful tabs, and Cooliris preview - excellent for MN, because you just scroll over the thread title, and you can view the thread without having to select it. So for ambiguous threads where you aren't sure if you are interested, you can take a sneaky peak!

It kept asking me to update but I was busy

Now it won't ask anymore - how do I find it again?
