    Nice, just installed.

    Also, it's best to completely uninstall your old installation and reinstall. I just tested it and it has some issues with tabs if you install over the top (although the issue didn't occur for another co-worker so if the issue does occur, you know what to do.)

    Nice find though

    I have to admit that since version 1 I feel that FF has lost some of its stability, at least for me. Post Version 1 versions crash far more than version 1 did. Actually I can't remember V1 crashing - EVER. However v1.5 was a nightmare for me and would crash a couple of times a day; though I haven't been using that for months now; not since the beta and RC releases of Version 2 have been around. Spell checker and session restore (which was a plugin before) are great editions to version 2 . The interface for me remains the best there is compared to IE, Opera and NS. The NS interface is a joke.

    Anyone else think 2.0 is slower at rendering pages, or is it just me?

    Anyhow, this spell checker is going to make the forums a nicer place to be

    BTW, which library are people using?

    I'm liking it, but had got used to having FasterFox, something which hasn't been ported over to v2 yet

    EDIT - anyone know how to just have one close button for all the tabs like the way firefox used to work, instead of having a close button on every tab you have open?

    Is anyone else having the cursor jump to 1 place behind or even 1 word behind when you are typing? It results in what you typed, all being mixed up. Bugger.
