It's horrible! Not only does it hang, but it CRASHES a LOT. I have never had another version, or browser (with the exception of IE) crash so much! At *least* twice a day.

And, not only does the performance suck, I do not like the way it's set up. It is SO not user friendly.

Please fix it!

i agree with you whole heartly.This browser has to be the worst of the lot.Too bad because it was a really nice browser till they messed it up.Going back to 3.6.and iam sure were not the only ones with this opinion.

I found the new version slow and so I complained in this forum and in a message to Firefox. I got no response. Since then, I've discovered that version 4 hangs. Not crashes. Hangs. All the time. Which now means that of the sites I visit regularly - such as Facebook, The Daily Beast, The Washington Post and Yahoo my experience is either so slow I think I'm on dial-up in 1996 (Daily Beast) or the program hangs (Facebook) and I have to force quit out of it and restart the computer. In a word -- and I'm making this loud so somebody at Mozilla will maybe hear it this time. VERSION 4 IS REALLY, REALLY BAD AND YOU GUYS HAVE DONE NOTHING TO FIX IT OR SUPPORT THOSE OF US WITH PROBLEMS. IS EVERYONE AT MOZILLA IN COMPLETE DENIAL ABOUT THIS???
