    Ok, this might be old news to some of you but it's new news to me. I use my Firefox browser pretty heavily (at least 7+ tabs open at any given time), and Firefox starts to slow down my computer... I was running Firefox 2... so I just upgraded to Firefox 3 and HOLY SMOKES :noes: it's like my computer got a hardcore upgrade! Everything runs so much faster now! Hope this is good news for some of you guys.

    Note: Firefox 3 has nothing that special, but it's freaking fast :big grin:

    I'm pretty sure most Firefox regulars upgraded within the week it was released.

    I upgraded, but then downgraded back to FF2 because a lot of my extensions didn't work. I usually don't upgrade right away, but just wanted to see FF3.

    After installed, go to the Add-Ons menu, and click "Overide All Compatibility."

    tab mix plus and mouse gestures don't have extensions listed on the FireFox site, but they do have versions for FF3. i did find beta versions though that seem to be working fine.

    I love the new feature where you can click and drag an item on the webpage (link, photo, whatever) and it retains the transparent image while clicking and dragging. :bigthumb:

    Oh yeah, and searchable history too.

    I don't see the "Override All Compatiablity" option on my Add-Ons menu, unless I'm looking at the wrong menu

    Edit: Had to update my Nightly Tester Tools first :o
