Firefox automatically updated itself to version 3.6.7 even though it is not out as a stable release. The about page says it is version 3.6.7 without any mention of "beta" anywhere. What should I do? Reinstall the stable release or wait until the next automatic update?

the only problem i had with 3.6.4 was that java script problems happened, then i was updated to 3.6.6 and it all locked up, froz and crashed. Now im updated to 3.6.7 that has script problems a new plugin-container.exe3 that only seems to separate the actual firefox running and still freezes, locks up, lages so severe i have to close it, and crashes still on Adobe flash so it has gone for a problem to worse then a problem

3.6.7 When running facebook (flash) after about 10 minutes, Firefox is using 90% of the cpu. 3.6.6 was warned about some flash problems, but his is way beyond usable. IE on face book has NO problems.

my CPU drops down to about 4% and i have no movement on 3.6.7 = no virtual movement at all like a dead PC. I started now going back and forth between explorer and firefox tho not much difference there either
