Firefox 4.0 beta releases are a snapshot of the current development stage of Firefox 4 and meant for testing by experienced users.
If bugs are found then they can get reported and fixed before the final 4.0 version gets released.
Not all website work properly with the Firefox 4 beta versions and nightly builds.
If you do not have experience with such test releases then it is better to stay with Firefox 3.6.x releases.


Check the general.useragent prefs on the about:config page.
You can open the about:config page via the location bar, just like you open a website.

Filter: general.useragent
If any general.useragent prefs are bold (user set) then right-click that pref and choose Reset.

Create a new profile exclusively for the 4.0 beta version and create a desktop shortcut with -P "profile" appended to the target to launch that profile.
