    So is anyone using Firefox 4 yet?

    Any tips, problems, add-ons you like?

    Not sure I like the new layout so I have held off updating to 4.

    I use it. Did some tests at work and it seems faster than everything else. Also does not seems to have the huge memory leak that 3 had.

    Benn using it for a while, works like a charm and all the plug ins I need have been updated.

    However, I do use Chrome for my day to day normal browsing.

    I used FireFox until Chrome came out. Pundits called it safer/more secure. Not sure exactly why but haven't looked back. Use it as my main PC browser at work

    With the iMac I haven't explored beyond Safari which is a pretty nice browser in it's own right

    I use Chrome on all my PC's and the Mac at home. Not looking to go back to Firefox, unless there is a good reason.

    Been using FF 4 for quite a while now. The new interface did take some getting used to. I believe there is a way to revert it to the 3.x interface, but I haven't bothered looking into it.

    Ok decided to go ahead and upgrade. There were a couple of add-ons that weren't yet compatible, but they weren't that big of a deal. So far it is definitely faster. I can get used to the new look and did find some nice posts/sites that show how to tweak some of the settings.

    Tried Chrome some time ago and didn't like it at all. In fact had several sites that simply wouldn't work right, so I went back to Firefox (plus I am not a big fan of google anyway.....)

    Tried Chrome on my MacBook Pro and did not like it even for a minute.

    Gave up on Safari a long time ago (years). I try it every so often but it's just to bloody slow!

    Been on FF4 for a while. It's quick.

    ok .........I have discovered a weird problem.

    When I click on one of the buttons below the banner all I get is a quick flash of what is on the drop down and then it disappears. This happens just about every time I try now after upgrading to FF4

    Any ideas?

    Each 1 drops down when I click on it, and they open as I move the pointer across them. If the pointer moves away from the button, they go away.

    I know that......whenever I click on the button (w/o moving the mouse) the menu just flashes, it doesn't stay displayed.

    And now it seems to be happening on other forums with the same button layout/function.....

    And it also is doing it with the drop down menu on the quick reply box for the smilies!

    OK.....got it figured out. It was an add-on that was messing up the websites.

    I can't use the multi-row bookmarks toolbar add-on.
