More specifically for the PC.

I have a pc for work and I use firefox for some of what I do. I decided to download and try out version 3.0. I have to say the results were less then positive. While there's some good things there, the application was a pig. My computer would frequently just sit there with the cpu stuck at 100% and the hard drive was going crazy. I close the browser and everything would return to normal. I tried using it for a while but it was killing my computer.

Hopefully 3.1 will be better but I'll have to go back to the prior version.

Anyone else have similar experiences?

It crashes now and then similar to the beta which is something many have reported.

It will also take a while to load images on some pages, even when the images are the same image (if that makes any sense). I can't go to another tab until that page is all loaded. I wonder if there were some tweaks I did in previous versions that need to be removed.

I assume the memory leaks have been improved upon but haven't tested this.

I wonder if they rushed this one.

I use it, but as a secondary browser because there are still a few pages out there which safari doesn't load well...
but i couldn't stand the way the new version looked till i found this

now its livable... and works pretty well imo

Oh yeah, I need to update. I just don't want to have to reconfigure everything again.

usually it will keep your settings... it will even auto-download all your plugins for you to update them...

Nope. FF3 is working perfectly on my computer here at home and at work. I'm as happy as a clam in sand...

Get this: with Vista and IE I had some problems. Now with Vista and FF3 they are no more. I say go FF3.

I fixed my FF loading problems by creating a new profile and migrating things over. The problem was with the user.js and/or prefs.js files in my old profile.

I read somewhere to install Flash 10 beta to help with crashing problems and so far so good but more time is needed to see about that.
