Test Drive: Firefox BETA 3

So far so good except that FF3 does not yet support the Proxy AddOn Gladder that I use for The Great Fire wall. So, I have to run a separate Firefox 2 browser for that which requires jumping thru all kinds of fiery hoops since FF only allows one. (It can be done)

The Good News.  It’s way faster.  I went to CNN.com on both and FF3 won by 20 seconds.  (CNN is very slow here)

The Bestest News:  FF3 allows me to use the DKos BB Codes for html formatting

Woo Hoo! Now, I don’t have to write an essay at DKos and then copy and paste it in over here.

Mozilla says you can easily downsize back to the previous version but I found that bookmarks can get lost doing this and other things, so back up your bookmarks before jumping in the pool.

    See I can post pics of my Pride and Joy without typing in all that gibberish now.

  1. do you back up your bookmarks?  I am (almost) a total loser when it comes to computer stuff…don’t assume I know anything: I don’t.  But I’ve been using FF since version 1.5 and really don’t want to have to recreate all my bookmarks when I switch to the new one.

    Thanks!

  2. that it fixes the memory leaks (which is why FF locks up after 3 or 4 days) and the damn xpcom error also.
