    Been using it for a couple of days now, and everything seems good. All but one of my extensions are working, and I've had no stability issues or little niggling things. It all seems good.

    Got IE7 installed too now, so everything's all fresh and different

    Does anyone know if you can use the spell checker through a dialogue box? Ie in a non-in-line way?

    I Like in-line spelling, but I also like to write a big long post, and then spell check it all in one go, ie without having to click on each miss-spelt word. I also miss "ignore all" and "change all".

    Come back spellbound - all is forgiven!
    They told me I was gullible ... and I believed them.

    Been using v2.0 for a couple of days and so far so good. Except for a few minor niggles v1.5 was not too bad.

    Session saver was an extension I used to save tabbed session, now FF 2.0 has all this built on. My only gripe is the lack of extensions to manage tabs. Yes I do like to have a few tabs open at the same time! I'm using an add on called tabbrowser preferences. The choice will increase over time with more people developing extensions.

    Spell checker is neat.

    The copy and paste bug seems to have gone (HOORAY), but the 100% cpu problem is still there for me (BOOO).

    LOL, what on earth are you doing to your system?

    Still not had any problems with it, so it's looking good - if anything start-up time is a touch longer, but I can live with it taking 0.002 seconds longer to get going.

    That's most probably environmental issues, not an FF issue. Mine works just fine.

    I've found that's usually caused by Flash adverts etc. Try using flash block and see if it makes a difference.

    Anyone know when Firefox Portable 2.0 final will be out?

    i just looooove the interface, so brilliantly clean.

    Other than that there isn't anything apart from the spellchecker that is that different, more evolutionary than revolutionary, and not a bad thing too.

    Yes, it is to do with flash, but it doesnt happen with explorer for some reason (6 or 7). Right now it is using 22-25% cpu close and reopen the same windows, its not doing it any more...until later.

    Firefox uses a different plug-in to IE, which uses ActiveX, so there's no real Flash connection between the 2 browsers.

    Got the latest Flash I assume?
