FF4, slower, crashes more, problems with more pages, inconvenient

Been a FF fan for a decade. But I fail to see any of what all the rave reviews say about FF4. Instead, my family of 5 are all complaining to me that FF4 is slower, crashes more, can't open more pages, they can't find where FF4 "hid" what they use to do with a single mouse click, and the firefox.exe process hangs and has to be manually killed before they can restart... which is often.

Same story at my workplace of 6 firmware engineers.

So... when is FF going to throw FF4 on the trash heap of failure and get back to what works... Believe it or not... in my IT rolls I am now recommending IE8 as more stable and reliable, and checking out other alternatives.

I've already rolled back to FF3.6x and have changed my default browser to IE8. FF4 is just not reliable or effective anymore.

I'd leave this in the "feedback" but you want to force me to FF4 (which doesn't work) to do so... and FF4 is NOT going back on my machines as is.
