definately before, IE9 RC isn't even out yet, i'm sure microsoft will wait 2 months after that till they release final, its such an important release, they will need it to be perfect as corporations use it.

Yeah I bet Microsoft browser share would really be in trouble if corporations stared using Firefox. That will never happen though.

Anyone else getting major slow downs with the Add-on managers page open? Seems to be having speed issues else where, but I can't seem to put my finger on it... or is it just me?

I installed it along side Beta 8, but beta 8 got removed shortly after, maybe I jumped the gun on this one?

It got so bad, I'm posting this in Opera 11....

IBM recently announced they were making Firefox the default browser on all of their 100,000s of PCs.

Was beta 9 supposed to fix memory usage issues? After upgrading from beta 8, with one tab currently open, firefox is using around 200,000k of memory.

That's odd. You must be running a ton of add-ons for your browser if it's taking that much memory with only one tab opened. I'm using Firefox 4b9 as well, with six tabs open and I'm hovering around 180,000k of memory in use. I quite like the changed Firefox interface: while it might be derivative of other browsers, such as Opera and Chrome, the themes for Firefox should really help it differentiate itself from the crowd. The start-up speed was quite pleasing as well, but that might be because the browser had simply closed and was re-opening.

Is that after opening and closing other tabs, or initial load? Does it do the same in safe mode?
