Firefox 3 Released

Recommended Posts

Thanks, I like it so far. I heard some complaints about the address bar from those that tested beta. But so far I really like that feature myself.

I like it so far too. The only problems I had after upgrading is

 

1. that several bookmarks are shown twice now

 

2. in the last tab of the extensions section (don´t know what that tab is called in english), I have something I can disable, but I don´t know what it does so lets keep it enabled (marked in red in screen shot). :)

Well that's a plugin with no name. All mine have names and bookmarks did not duplicate. It seems notably faster than FF2.

It was what the tab is called in the english versions not what the "inaktivera" button is called. ;)

I´ll assume the tab is called "plugins" as Bruce says above.

 

I still thinks it´s weird that the Firefox people hides a plugins name for me/us. :)

I saw this topic last night, and upgraded to 3.0 earlier this morning. Although I haven't had a chance to check out all the new features yet, I do like it so far. It does seem to be faster, and there is a 3.0 compatible Web Developer Tool Bar available.

 

Thomas, thanks for the heads up.

Thomas,

Did you have any plugins that synchronize your bookmarks? If so, I wonder if it acted up when you did the upgrade and caused some duplication.

I have a sort of related problem.

Not always but very often, Firefox crash when I try to log in to my gmail account.

I use the GMail Notifier plugin. When I click it to go to GMail I am not logged in but my credentials are already filled in and all I have to do is hit the submit button and it logs in.

I did some research and it looks like lots of people have problems with FF 3 and Gmail.

 

They do not say which extensions they use, so I haven´t figured out if it´s a FF or extension problem, but FF 3.01 appears to arrive mid july so hopefully the problems will go away then.

I think I will just stick with version 2 for now. I put FF3 on my laptop and was not impressed. To many plugins and such that I use that do not work or do not work correctly.
