[thelist] FireFox 3

I've been running it since Beta 2.

I have 10+ plugins going.  Virtually _all_ of my plugins are updated  
for FF3.  I think it's an overwhelmed server giving people problems.   
Firebug is updated -- somebody had said that it was not.

I like the new version quite a bit.  The only issues I've had are a  
plugin that was a bit screwey during beta, and a theme (Kempelton)  
that, while updated for FF3, doesn't work right on the Mac version.

I like the address bar thing.  I like the security features (the one- 
click site id).  I _don't_ like the default Windows theme, but that's  
easily changed.

No significant problems.  I'm quite happy with Firefox 3.

This makes perfect sense for 99.9999% of users.  Only hackers and devs  
might want two versions of the same browser installed at the same  
time.  I file this one under "of course it does".
