    Mozilla ff4 final release

    http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/product...win&lang=en-US

    Fortunately, Firebug was able to launch immediately Firebug 1.7, compatible with FF4

    https://getfirebug.com/downloads/

    I hate one thing, so far, in FF4. On right click over a link, they switched again the order between Open Link In a New Tab (who is now again the first, like in FF 2, but reversed in FF3) and Open Link In a New Window. I wish they could make up their mind once for ever

    That first link tried to download an .exe immediately.

    Luckily I could stop it

    If you would like to have a look at FF4 before downloading it, this is the FF4 home page from which you can download FF4 (12MB) if you choose to.

    You should have instructed all your browsers to ask which operation to choose before they are invited to execute or to download something. That is an elementary safety setting you are to do whenever you install a new browser..

    That's how I caught and stopped it

    But there are many non tech-savvy people out there and I always prefer to give people a choice to download stuff, hence the link I posted

    It’s not downloading anything with JS disabled (NoScript).
    However, Kor, another reason why you’d better point to the home page instead of the direct download is that not everybody has Windows as their OS.

    Duh, WINNING!

    Well I still love FF but the changes to the interface are entirely annoying and the FF people just seem to be changing to look more like Chrome.

    I just upgraded and find Firefox on Mac is still a little buggy in some things. For example when I open the preferences, edit a few things, and then close it again, there is a gray rectangle in the top left corner which covers part of my window. It looks like that’s the anchor of the pref window which comes down/switches with a really unnecessary animation (like when you minimize a window into the dock). I think they went a little far with gimmicks there.

    Looks like mainly cosmetic changes.

    Edit:
    hmmm.....even though during installation I selected to not make FF my default browser, it went ahead and did so anyway ......soon fixed that little "feature"

    I'm gonna wait until the final update of Firefox 3.6.x before I upgrade to 4. Firefox's memory problems get on my last nerves and I want to see how that's dealt with before I switch.

    And the JavaScript alert window is stupid (at least under Win7). A simple square with a thin black border, half white, half dim gray. It's like my first draw in Photoshop 4.0, 15 years ago

    Well, it doesn’t look that bad in my opinion but it also doesn’t match the general UI at all. It looks like a common JavaScript overlay confirmation message. At first I was confused where that was coming from. I’m wondering what they thought when they did that.

    Am I wrong in thinking that is now a DIV overlay and therefore not a modal dialogue box? So a user can switch tabs without resolving that message box? If so then I approve. But yeah it looks a little too minimalist.
