Firefox 3.0.1

So who all has the new update yet?

What do you think of it?

At first i was kind of upset that some of my add-ons didn't work, but I ended up finding a newer version of Tab Mix Plus, which is the only one that I really use that needed updated, so that was ot such a big deal.

But I don't like the address bar, like when you go to type in an address, the way it organizes the previous addresses kind of annoys me.

Re: Firefox 3.0.1

yea, its very 'vistarific' in the look and feel of it... i loved the older version, where it was like a quick, chopped down version of IE that doesn't fuck up...

all my add-ons had updates the same day as the firefox update, so i didn't have any problems with it...

like you said though, i don't like the new 'history' in your address bar, its way too cluttered... i could see where having the 'page title' and the address info in the same area could be nice, but its kind of distracting and a little annoying.

Re: Firefox 3.0.1

here's a link on how to disable the annoying url history autocomplete function... this helped restore the 'new and improved' firefox to the way it should be... uncluttered, fast, and fully functional:

enjoy!

Re: Firefox 3.0.1

Hmmm... I've been using SeaMonkey now for ages and been happy with its drop-box autocomplete. Though only really useful if your trying to find a site you've been to.
