Hi,starting form yesterday the feedback button in Firefox 4.0 beta 2 isn't working anymore,it redirects to the download page for 4.0 beta 2 telling I have to upgrade to the latest version to use the feedback function-anybody know what's going on? I've already reset to default general.useragent.extra.firefox and general.useragent.locale,still doesn't work-thanks

Edit:well,as someone pointed out on the Input Dashboard,changing general.useragent.extra.firefox to 4.0b3 makes the feedback function work again,however I'm not sure if the message then actually appears on the dashboard-very strange,hope it gets fixed ASAP.

I have not found a definitive answer, but this may be due to the original planned release date for beta 3.

Beta 3 was originally planned to be released on August 6th, but has been delayed for a few days (currently scheduled for 11th-12th). The feedback system may have been setup to stop feedback from beta 2 from 6th August when beta 3 was originally planned for release.

That makes sense,however it should be fixed since this feedback feature is IMO one of the most interesting (and useful,I suppose) things in this release. Nonetheless,I've just checked the Input Dashboard and my last feedback regularly appears-which means,setting the general.useragent.extra.firefox to 4.0b3 actually works.

It is best to remove that setting after beta 3 is released. If you don't Firefox will always have 4.0b3 listed in the user agent string which may lead to other problems. To remove the setting just right-click on it and choose reset.
