I installed it yesterday on my Mac. The smart update looks nice, and it renders as well as Mozilla, but beyond that I haven't noticed much significant difference yet (although I still use Mozilla as my default browser... mozilla seems to work better on the mac overall than firefox so far, and is more configurable).

Mike, yes, the Mozilla suite of applications has much more stuff to configure than Firefox ;)

 

On the Mac you might not notice much difference, because the greatest visible difference is that the default theme has changed to a theme that looks a lot like the default theme for Mac (pinstripe, if I'm not mistaken).

 

Windows users will also notice one big advantage over the previous versions: the download size is now just a little over 4 Mb! woooot

 

4 Mb and you get the most advanced (or at least one of them) web browser there is! :)

 

Hey, Microsoft, how does that compare to your old Internet Explorer and it's huge size? ;)

 

There are also a few new things but these are the most significant ones for non-tech users :)

Um, you are forgetting one thing Raul... I.E comes with a lot of extra stuff that takes alot of space that Firefox doesnt deliver in its smaller filesize...unfortunately its just security problems and stuff... ;)

http://texturizer.net/firefox/ is an excellent website for Tips & Tricks, extensions, themes and whatnot for Firefox. For 0.9 compatible extensions see http://www.extensionsmirror.nl/index.php?showtopic=284 . To find new extensions and themes that are compatible with 0.9 and I think are the ones tha tare downloaded if you hit the update button http://update.mozilla.org/

yeah, it was great the 4-5 days that it worked. now if I launch it it just crashes. I have even tried uninstalling it, cleaning up the registry and re installing it and even with a fresh clean install it crashes as soon as it loads a page. I'm back to mozilla 1.6

I loaded it 2 days ago and yesterday it crashed!!! When I tried to launch it would not run!!! I did a clean install of win xp and loaded all the apps (6 hours of work). I have it installed on the clean system ....by the way I started having problems when doing a search on these forums...

:)

youneverknow

 

Check out the Firefox forums of all the problems occuring:

Im on XP and did not uninstall previous version first (since i forgot that step :( ) but no problems so far... :)

by the way I started having problems when doing a search on these forums

But i have not been in to these forums yet with 0.9...so i cant tell how it works here.

I've been using it since it came out. No problems here (WinXP Home and Pro at work). I also just installed it and let it do the house cleaning.

 

.7 to .8 was a mess for me but .8 to .9 was as it should be. Best wishes to the rest of you though in getting it straightened out.
