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).

From the Minefield button->options->toolbar layout.Drag out the search bar and the bookmarks icons into that window and search for your your gmail watcher icon and drag it where you want it.

Sorry i didn't tell but after restart, search ang bookmarks come back every time... :(
