I don't get it, why even give out estimated delivery dates if you are bound to change it?

Unforeseen circumstances. Bugs can pop up at anytime that can change the schedule.

Because it's just an estimate?

Well may be they need to follow Debian's philosophy, 'release when ready' and not give out dates at all. Their estimates are WAY TOO OFF. i.e. FF 3.6, 3.6.4, 3.7?, Beta 7 etc... this is just in last year or so. They are months off their target!!

By giving out incorrect estimates, they are only looking more unprofessional. They cannot look bad (or unprofessional) if they don't even give out estimated dates.

I've decided to install as few addons as possible for Firefox once I update to the 4.0 final release, because then it keeps the speed up. The reason it was so slow for me was because of the addons.

There are a lot of performance related bugs that block Firefox 4 release... that is all I know.

Tabs DO NOT lagg for me.

Sensible plan. A bunch of the many I used to use are being replaced by built-in functionality anyway, which is always good to have (e.g. Sync, Glasser).

how long does it usually take from a candidate build of a beta to a beta? Hoping maybe it might be released tomorrow.

Usually 1 or 2 builds. Occasionally 3.

If you haven't learned by NOW, THERE IS NO SET TIME!!!! Take a couple tokes and chill! Have you tried calling a psychic friends network? Maybe purchase a tarot card reading. Consult an astrology chart. Ask a dead person!
