will Firefox 4 work, without problems, on a Windows 7, starter edition, netbook?


I also have a Mac with OS 10.4 and I realize that I can't download FF 4 on that. But I'm also updating my netbook, and would like to install FF 4 if I can be sure it will work without problems. I'm not very good at uninstalling applications, and want to avoid unnecessary headaches. Thank you!

I got a new netbook yesterday with Windows 7 Starter. It came with IE8 which I hate, so I downloaded Firefox 4 to it - no problems so far!

My netbook is an ASUS eee with 1 gig of RAM, Atom 450 processor. I was really shocked that Firefox worked.
