    I finally decided to get with the program and installed it.

    So far it has done nothing but crash everytime I try to import my IE Favorites. :meh:
  2. Which version?
    The newest, 3.0 seems be having problems.

    I'm still on one one of the 2.0 versions and only use IE when I have to.

    This is 2.0 It's up and running now but I could only import my Favorites and not my saved forms, cookies and such. Anyway, looks good. I just installed Speed Dial. I do about 70% of my browsing by keyboard. Speed Dial reduces touchpad use even more!

    I just switched to 3.0 from IE7 a few days ago. No problem importing favorites. Overall, the new Firefox is a lot more useful than IE, mostly due to how the add-ons can be intergrated into the browser. Some sites are much faster with FF, although I've noticed it's slower opening up pages with lots of images.

    I love FF but 3.0 has issues. I went back to 2.0.

    I've been using Firefox since version 1.5.

    I upgraded from 2 -> 3 when it came out and so far all is good.

    Nope. I had problem with it ignoring the Arial font type, and with CSS-styled pages width. I guess these issues will be fixed over the first couple of updates.

    Pictures of the craft are useless without the instruction manual. You must have forgotten to, "Think in must think in Russian."

    All I've used for the past years is Firefox. I'm on and can't live without the extensions Web Developer Toolbar, DownThemAll!, and Firebug.
