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.

run it in 32bit mode guess you need 64bit flash version for it to work in 64bit mode.

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.

You could be right here, running the latest nightly and I am on only 600mb with 39 tabs :blink: Before it was 800-900mb...

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?

I have about 15 add-ons, which include, Google toolbar, Adblock Plus, WOT, ForecastFox, ReloadEvery, Stylish, Flashgot, & a few add-ons from Mozilla Labs.

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

It goes up to 200,000k of memory after about 10 minutes of use in one tab.

Where do you see the list of blockers for beta 10?

Hmm OK, maybe I'm missing something here, but can anyone scroll with the the scroll wheel pressed? Noticed it in the last beta but can't remember when I could last navigate using it. Is there now some option I've now got to enable? Is it a bug, or is something else going on?

Scrolling that way works fine for me. I didn't have to enable any options or anything, either.

Have you tried safe mode or a clean profile?

Well the release is apparently about a month away!

Anyway, still can't use this beta until MS fix the font rendering, it's just terrible. I know I can turn off hardware rendering, but it works fine in Chrome so I'd be going backwards not using it.

Coming soon.
