I got a stupid question guys... If you download a nightly build, is there some sort of extension in place to update daily with new builds or do you have to manually do it?

The auto update kicks in everyday. It's about 2-3 MB update each day. If you skip a day, you will download the full version of 11-12 MB.

Quick question for the Firefox pros: I made a new Profile for the nightly build, which file must I copy from my 3.6.4 profile so the nightly has my currently opened tabs?

I have one other question myself. I'm sure it's not recommended, but can we point the minefield installer to our current firefox and just upgrade it, rather than run it concurrently?

Whats the difference between the nightlies and hourly builds? Is there any point in installing the hourly builds, if I have the nightly builds installed?

Thanks, that did the trick!^^ btw DirectWrite is also broken for me, causes major flickering and makes the whole UI looks like it would need 16x antialiasing :laugh:

just what it says, hourly's are released pretty much every hour and nightly's are released daily
