I think the "throbbing" effect is to tell you that the FF4 is still loading the page and it's still alive, not a dead page. :D:D

Interesting to see if this continues in the final version.

Good source for reading. I also agree that that the orange Firefox button is jarring. Given an option, I'd rather hide or remove it to save me one-line space.

In his speed test, the author also found that "Opera finished in an average of 342 ms, Chrome in 361, Safari in 377, Firefox 4 in 651, Firefox 3.6 in 901, and Internet Explorer 8 in 5,035."

Looks like Opera, Chrome and Safari are quite close in terms of speed, but FF4 is still lagging behind. IE8, arrrgggg...

Very interesting interview with Christopher Blizzard from Mozilla here :

Firefox Button

The Firefox Button can now be moved to sit on the same line with the tab row, with the color changed from orange to grey, or any other color you like.

I followed the guide below and it worked for me.

Remove Firefox 4.0's big, ugly, unmovable orange button

After running FF4 a few more rounds, I'm liking it more and more. It responses very fast (as fast as Chrome), allowing you to click many links at one go (it becomes a bit sluggish for a while in Chrome if too many at one go). Slowly it will become my main browser over Chrome.

The extensions like download helper and download status bar are compatible with FF4 now. Two days ago when I checked they were not. :)

FF4.0b1 installed in XP comes with a window frame. After installing an add-on Hide Caption Titlebar Plus (1.1.2), the window frame is hidden with preference settings below:

Main: Smart Popups
Look & Feel: Never show custom caption/titlebar, auto skins and enabled min. max & close buttons located at top-right corner.

Though the add-on is said to be compatible with FF4.0b1, but quite some alignments are out. Still needs to create a file called userChrome.css below with some adjusted paddings and saved inside the folder C:\Documents and Settings\*user name*\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\3ppjd4dk.default\Chr ome

Code:

#appmenu-button-container {
position: fixed !important;
}
#appmenu-button {
padding: 3px 18px 3px 18px !important;
margin-top:2px !important;
background-color: rgba(54, 121, 166, 0.2) !important;
}
#navigator-toolbox[tabsontop="true"] #TabsToolbar {
padding-left: 98px !important;
padding-top:1px !important;
padding-right:68px !important;
}
#navigator-toolbox[tabsontop=true] #nav-bar {
padding-left: 0px !important;
padding-right: 0px !important;
}

Then only it appears fine. One thing good about FF is its adjustable UI while Chrome is not. ;)

Get rid of Firefox Button

Oops, that's a way to hide the Firefox Button, tried on Win7. :)

Change the userChrome.css file to below and save it in the same location (see last post).

Code:

#appmenu-button-container {
position: fixed !important;
top: 999999999px !important;}
}
#appmenu-button {
padding: 3px 18px 3px 18px !important;
margin-top:3px !important;
background-color: rgba(54, 121, 166, 0.2) !important;
}
#navigator-toolbox[tabsontop="true"] #TabsToolbar {
padding-left: 0px !important;
padding-top:1px !important;
padding-right:115px !important;
}

Some good tips there Jojo. I think it will be helpful for many users, when the final version comes out, and maybe for beta users too.

I am quite excited about Firefox 4.0, and looking forward to it. More so, after reading the positive response here from many members. Really looking forward to it. Any idea about the release date?

It's a beta, only to be used for testing / fun..risks involved.

I don't quite like using firefox, it's too slow sometimes especially its website loading speed. I'd prefer Google Chrome. Please dont mind my offense maybe

Hi mjack, and welcome to the forum. Everyone has their favorite apps for different jobs and few are more emotive than browser choice. No one should take offense just because you happen to like something else, but if they do we'll delete their posts anyway :D
