I was loving and updating everyday on the Nightly 8.0 build than Monday morning, downloaded the update, and app just keeps Force closing, took it off and reloaded first dowload before any updates and it works fine! but as soon as I install mondays update it force closes! My phone is a Droid X with Gingerbread upgrade and is rooted! but I have made NO changes or added any new software to phone....Any ideas?

Could be a Bug in the 8.0 nightly. That's one of the risks that come with using pre-release versions which are still being developed. Have you tried any of the more recent versions? Like yesterday's or Wednesday's version?

Firefox 8 is two versions down the road, there's like 14 more weeks of development time left before it's scheduled to be released. 6.0 is due in just under 2 weeks, then Firefox 7.0 6 weeks later, and then 6 weeks after that cones Firefox 8.0's turn.

BTW, Mozilla doesn't sell Firefox, it's free for everyone.

There were a couple days of broken Nightly builds. You should be able download the current nightly and run that.
