I just started using Beta 3 and the interface is incredible, they did such a great upgrade this time. So far everything works perfectly except for a couple of my add-ons, but I can live without those for a while.

I know, isn't it amazing? The UI is even better than Safari's. It's hard to believe that it's Firefox under there.

Agreed, the interface is great and much nicer than I figured it would be.

To qunal, I just tried downloading files and it's fine here.

I love the new interface and speed of Firefox 3 beta 3 but I have found a few sites that it will not render correctly. It seems to be blocking content that I want and I can't figure out how to allow that content. The site in question is www.mix1051.com It has a link in the top right of the page to stream their radio broadcast but Firefox 3b3 blocks that link completely. Safari displays that link correctly and allows me to listen to my morning radio show.

How do I configure Firfox to display the content? I've tried going to prefs/content and adding www.mix1051.com to the allow list but it doesn't work.

Just bumped up to beta 3 myself. loving the new interface, took a second to get used to but it's absolutely fantastic. my only problem is that I lost the ability to use my stumbleupon extension, other than that it's better and faster than beta 2

Open the Download Manager from the Tools menu => Downloads. That should show you the status of your download and the location it was downloaded to.

I'm loving it too. I must admit that I don't have much to offer as a "developer". I'm just too darned curious to not see how it works. If I run across and issue, can I report it in normal person terms, or do they need tech geek terms?

Specifically I've noticed in Gmail that the "quick contact" list bleeds out over the email box so it can show the full name of each person, as opposed to cutting the box off no matter what....
heck.. here is a pic of what I mean

Thanks for the help with this. I did some investigating and found that FireFox was loading a stylesheet named userContent.css which was causing my troubles. I deleted that file and now it works as advertised.

Pretty fast and stable. Firefox was my browser of choice in the Windows environment and I've missed using it. I stuck to Safari lately because of the memory leakage and failure to release memory upon closing a window issue. But FF3 Beta 3 seems to have put those issues to rest. One thing I have noticed on some pages when comparing to Safari is that color saturation rendition seems to be a little 'off' on some pages. Kind of odd.

The new theme is great, I always thought the old one looked a bit unprofessional, like Linux desktops, but the new one looks right at home. And it's fast, faster than a speeding bullet. There are still a few bugs and AdBlock doesn't seem fully compatible yet, but so far I like it.
