I definitely selected right one, I even downloaded it 2 times to make sure. I didn't install it though because when I opened the file that screenshot came up. I was too angry to press continue (the button on the bottom right in screeny!). :P

Well don't forget to post a review on it. :P

Correction to one of my previos post what I used was Gran Paradiso not Grand Paradiso and it was not Beta but Alpha. Now I know why I didn't like to test Beta of FF. :blink:

@ DKT27

A quick review of Russian version which I decided to install!

First of all the installer is bigger @ 8.4mb compared to I think 7.6 of Ff 3.5. Installed folder is 28.9mb

It is definitely quicker by a little, maybe 25% but not sure. Hardly any addons work =(, I have like 20 but only 4 work: Adblock, Custom Download Manager, Speed Dial, WOT.

Windows 7 support such as displaying open tabs in thumbnail previews has arrived!

Also, there seems to be a dictionary built-in because I have none installed! Everything I'm typing has a red line under it because it thinks I'm supposed to be writing in Russian!

Benchmarks:

V8 benchmark suite: 3.6: Score: 433, but I sometimes I kept getting 'error' on RayTrace. I think 3.5: 300 (not sure).

Sunspider: 3.6b1: 1124.6m compared to 3.5: 1,524 ms

I'm going to uninstall it though because I can't use Roboform as it doesn't work with it =(

@ donizme: Thanx for the review. So how's the Russian version. :lol:

For thumbnail like previews there is an addon called foxtab, it's great. If you ever think of usin the stabe version again, don't forget it.

Well I think that FF stable also has build in spell check,or is it because of google toolbar. :unsure:

Too bad that addons don't work. :(

Even the Norton 2010 addon doesn't work which is the most worrying. I'm not sure if some features of Norton like download protection are off now!

Mozilla's mistake to include Russian version is getting annoying! Everything I have typed here has a big red line under it to say I'm not spelling right! Oh wait the 2010 is not underlined! It doesn't underline numbers so that's good...lol

Wow its good! But the RAM usage is extremely high though and Firefox slows sometimes. I think I will wait for another update. ;)

For those using this... Do you have any problems with IDM Add-on?

Cause I remember before it was officially released... I tried it on my desktop which has IDM and whenever I access Gmail.com it crashes... Which is weird becuase if I don't load gmail and try other sites.. it works just fine... Currently using 3.5.4. 3.5.5 works fine as well, but not too sure why 3.6 gives me problems with IDM/Gmail. I tried disabling the add-on and accessing gmail and that works..

@Cultivator: I'm not having any problems on 3.6b with the IDM add-on. I've downloaded 6 TV shows and it hasn't crashed the browser and Gmail also works fine.

I remember a member mentioned a addon/tool that makes any of your addon work on any FF version. Give me a sec to find it.

OK. This is what Mo Husen recommended to use for addons to work - MR Tech Toolkit Extension
