    I'm using FF 4.0.1. No issues faced so far. Some plugins may not work in the newer version of FF so you have to consider that before upgrading.

    I passed on the upgrades to Version 4x. Roboform won't work with
    the newer versions of Firefox, and I can't live without my Roboform. :)

    The new UI just sucks big time. I don't understand why did they have to copy Chrome and hide the status bar and place stop/refresh on the same spot. All my addons are working, but the UI is just so annoying and will never upgrade unless they bribe me.

    Me neither.
    I gave up on firefox after this current update. No roboform and alot of bugs.

    I have started using Chrome and it's been great so far.

    Damn the new version is buggy as hell, I'd recommend holding off for now.

    I hate seeing the downhill plummet of Firefox, what used to be the best browser!

    The new version is actually 5.....4 lasted about a month it seems

    I don't like either of them over version 3. Things like the home button are on the wrong side of the menu and it takes longer to maneuver.

    I also liked the tabs below the bookmark bar because, again, they were quicker to move between.

    (oh snap....I just moved the home button...well that fixes that one)

    I installed the new 5.0 and lost all my add-ons. I restored computer to last restore but somehow it changed all exe. files to adobe reader and it wouldn't start. Changed registry and fixed adobe problem but still can't get firefox to start. Anybody have any suggestions short of reinstalling it. I don't want to lose bookmarked sites. Thanks
