Haha, something I noticed straight away, the GUI sort of fades in and out when you select the tabs at the top... weird, that I noticed something like that first.
I don't remember the other doing that.

I like the way Private Browsing doesn't open a new window like with IE either. It just opens it up in the same, and you simply close to restore the tabs you had before... Not that I use that feature or anything. Its just...you know...kewl

I'd use more than I do now if it had the Speed Dial feature of Opera 9.

Come on Mozilla!

The only thing that bothers me about it is the new "Open a new tab" tab. More times than not, I end up clicking that instead of closing the tab being used.

Just upgraded from FF 3.0.7 to FF 3.5 and it has critical issues.

FF 3.5 takes more than a minute to start! I gave up timing it after that!

Going back to FF 3.0.7.

EDIT:

Just installed FF 3.0.7 and it works perfectly!

Again... Come on Mozilla!
