I'm loving Firefox 3 so far. downloaded it at work on my 2 work computers, then on my laptop and home PC Friday night.

One improved feature I'm loving is the noticeably faster page download/loading times. the interface is nice and i do like the new smart address bar. one click bookmarking and the other new features are also pretty sweet. all up, seems FF3 is pretty cool... :dance:

Firefox 3 and I even switched a previously MS IE lover work colleague to Firefox once they checked out FF3.

Can only imagine the improvements to FF4?!?!?! - browser "immersion"?, virtual bookmarking?, hyper tabs!? - he he...

Nice work Mozilla!

Oh, do you mean the middle scroll wheel on the mouse?

Then I have no idea what is wrong with your mouse.

Yep, that's the one. And you and me both :lol: I'm happy to just put up with it not working properly, since I always managed without middle-click shortcuts up until now...

A goldie for someone who can help me out - I'm currently on Mozilla Firefox however I need to swtich back to IE as I need to access a website which only works for IE. I can't seem to switch back from Firefox to IE. If I open up IE, it loads up the homepage but once I type in a web address in there, Firefox opens up and loads the site. I've tried to reset the web settings and clicked on the box for IE to check if its the default browser but that doesn't seem to work once I restarted the computer. Any ideas??

Yeah, it's down for me at the moment too, hence why I couldn't get a direct link to it.
With IE Tab, all you need to do is click on the little icon in the right hand corner of the window and it'll change the (I think) rendering engine so that you can use Internet Explorer within Firefox. Great add-on. =D

I've just installed the latest Firefox upgrade 3.6 and it seems to load pages hell faster. Has anyone else noticed this?

Problem for me is that Any Color doesnt work and i have to put up with crappy white text on my black persona. Its hideous. I loved to change the colour.

However i do notice it is a hell of a lot quicker which is why i kept the upgrade

Does anyone know if there is a plugin/add on, other than that one that can change the colour of the text?

However i love the full screen mode
