Does anyone else not have the same result?

I use FireFox 3 and the only problem I have is with the bookmark screen.

Apart from that I wouldn't use anything else.

I use Firefox 3.0 on my Linux rig, and on my laptop, I use Internet Explorer 8, so I'm satisfied with both.

firefox uses a lot of ram.. but I have 2 gigs of ram.. so I don't really care.

Don't really care much for IE or any other browser.

I'm a Firefox user, but got Firefox 3 and haven't had much luck with the spell checker at all... I type semi fast and sometimes misspell things without notice, so a spell checker that works would be a nice update... I don't know if it's just me that it hates though, but it will underline stuff that is apparently correct, I can go over to it, put a space in the work, backspace and it will be fine. Some words are obviously spelled wrong and it doesn't catch it at all.
