Been using it at work since Monday (final build was leaked from one of Mozilla's mirror's before the offical release). I'm digging it. The built in spell checker is pretty pimp. Interface is cleaned up a bit. The only dissapointment so far is that the Download Manager Tweak extension hasn't been updated for 2.0 yet.

2.0 is not too bad...I still have not figure out how to selectively close a bunch of tabs at once. Meaning, like say you have 5 tabs and want to close 3 and 5. I'd like to be able to select 3 and 5, then close them both.

Also, I'm used to hitting alt-s to post...that now activates the 'history' drop down, which sort of sucks.

just did it again.

You know you can add "fuckin" to the built in dictionary right?

What I'm trying to figure out right now is how to activate the Session Restore. I had a add on with the previous version of Firefox and whenever I restarted my computer and opened Firefox (even multiple windows) it would remember how many tabs I had opened and what web sites I was on and open them up automatically. Pretty cool feature, can't figure it out with FF 2.0

Hey now, IE worked really hard to be the biggest source of computer vulnerabilities and vector of attacks in the history of computers. Just giving credit where credit's due.

Firefox isn't an email client.

If you're using webmail, just go to your webmail's website like normal. If you're using an email client, might I suggest: http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/thunderbird/

I need to download it at home and give it a try, because my Firefox at home crashes constantly. The one here at work has been pretty solid.

Not really true. There are some features on Kennedale's site that don't work with firefox. (last I checked, the schedule was one of them)

There are some sites that require the IE rendering engine to work properly. To view them in FF, get the IE Tab 1.1.1.4. I posted the link for it below.

I just updated mine to 2.0. Only thing that sucks is I looked through the add-ons and found a cool theme I wanted and it's not for ver 2.0 yet
Iv even tried to use the 2.0 ver of "Old factory" theme and I cant get it to work.Iv restarted firefox and restated the comp.

Exactly. If a site doesn't work with Firefox, I don't go to said site.

IE Tab is nice, but not so useful on Linux or osx.

If Kennedale's schedule doesn't work, they need a new schedule script. There's a bout a freaking billion php, and java based ones readily available (some even free) that will work in Firefox, or any other non-IE browser.

yes acually, I was quoting you when I said that. I remember you posting about firefox awhile back. I acually used some of the stuff that you said about firefox in one of my computer classes at school. but shhhh... My teacher thought it was my own opinion.
