I have been using Firefox because my son-in-law recommended it. I have been really satisfied with the 3.x.x.x. Then I got an update note to go to Firefox 4. It really disarms the reason to use Firefox. FF looks like and feels like IE. So that said, what's the point of you folks?
I attempted to uninstall ff4, but couldn't figure it out, so I just downloaded FF 3.6.xx. Since then, I like the handle and feel of what I was using before getting sucked into the mire of FF4.
If FF4 is a beta, then beta make it with the same top portion like the last version of 3 I like the 'File - Edit - View - History - Bookmarks - Tools - Help on top and not buried in an inaccesable menu. I threw away MS Office 2007 in favor of Office 3 because it was somewhat a-kin to changing a baby's dirty diaper while wearing boxing gloves. I'm not too skilled in computer management, but like art, food, automobiles, I may not know much about these things, but I do know what I like.
If you are going to change Firefox to a clone of IE, then so be it. I may have to try to use the browser Safari, that came with my Apple I-Touch. I have it on all my computers. It too is for free, and I need to use it to access some Apple applications. It is adequate, a little clumsy but adequate. I haven't taken the initiative to use it on a regular basis, so I can't make a quality judgment. It works well from the Touch, and the only drawback is the touch screen is too sensitive for my sense of touch.
Thanks for the soap box, but I downloaded and installed FF4 looking forward to a faster, sharper, better, easier to handle, but found the same look and feel as the later Microsoft applications and programs. Disappointing at best
