Wow good find, I downloaded and installed 1 day earlier. Everything fixed and worked fine than RC2 which breaked Flash player. :D

Oh and all the addons not compatible with 4.0 so need to wait for addons updates.

Hey, just downloaded and installed this. Am liking it so far, it fixed the youtube problem I was having.

But um, how can I change the text? It seems different than what it was in Firefox 3.6 It seems "thinner" and this is the basic text. Any help getting it how it was?

Well here go again, I am baffled at guys complainted about fonts seemed different but I checked to compared Firefox 4 final version with old Firefox 3.6.15 on VMWare but the fonts on this thread all looked about the same.

If you are not happy with this site's own fonts then you can change the fonts and sizes you want through Firefox option's content tab and unticked "Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of my selections above" in Fonts & Colours advanced box button.

They most certainly are not the same. Firefox 4 uses hardware acceleration which makes the text look blurry and just basically bad. I just installed FF4 and the first thing I noticed is how bad all the text looked. A quick Google of "Firefox 4 blurry text" comes up with a ton of results saying the same thing.

Luckily, you don't need to change the sites fonts, just go into Options/Advanced and untick "Use hardware acceleration when available".

I did, but it still looks the same. Maybe I got used to the other one now. It still looks thinner, i'll google, thanks!

What's so different about 4.0 then 3.6? I have had no problems with firefox at all. Watch YouTube everyday. Come to nvnews everyday. And always fast so why change?

Firefox 4 is fairly solid. It's MUCH faster, Airbrush. Also, the UI is much better. The new fonts (AA?) aren't that bad and most look exactly the same.
