Has anyone updated to Firefox 3 ?
If so are there any problems or has it been OK.

I'm not a user myself, but I know some people were having issues with some of their current plugins or addons etc not being compatible with FF3 yet. So either had to wait for them to be updated, ditch them, or stick to FF2...

Other than that, I don't know anything really. Sorry.

I've updated to Firefox, works fine with my WindowsXP no problems, though I don't have any addons;)

FF 3 with Vista Home Premium runs like a well oiled machine. Well, at least the operator is oiled.lips_sealed

Quite a few addons still don't work with v3. Including Paste and go, Tabbed browser prefs and quite a few others.

Much prefer Opera.

You were right Daz had to update Adobe flash to get U-Tube working.

Glad you're sorted now.

Personally, I'm not a fan of FF at all, although I guess it is better than IE.7, which doesn't say a lot really...! ;)

Yes, I am now on FF3, running with Windows XP, and have no real problems.

It is a bit picky about other sites though - it wouldn't allow a download from the Open University, so I just download that via IE instead.
