Firefox 4 Beta is out

Don't all rush at once!

Back up your firefox profile if you give it a go, as you may run into problems if you re-install 3.6 on the same profile. http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/profiles


If you have lots of add-ons, you will find many of them wont work, some due to not working with the new API, the rest just because they need a version bump to tell them they will work.
Try add-on compat reporter that will get some working.

Also, you can try enabling hardware acceleration and the new HTML5 support

1. Type: "aboutconfig" in the 'AwesomeBar' and hit Enter.
- Search for "gfx.font_rendering.directwrite.enabled".
- Select "gfx.font_rendering.directwrite.enabled" and double click to set the Pref to "True"

2. In aboutconfig still, Search for "mozilla.widget.render-mode".
- If its not there then add it. (Right Click anywhere and select "NEW" then "Integer". Add in the pref without quotes.)
- In the next Dialog type in a value of "6" without quotes.

3. In aboutconfig still, search for html5.enable
- click it to set it to 'true'

4. and lastly for a extra tweak...
- search for webgl.enabled_for_all_sites and set it to 'true'

And, finally, make sure you have the new adobe flash player installed. version 10.1 http://www.filehippo.com/download_flashplayer_firefox/
as it also comes with hardware acceleration for increased performance.

Good luck! shouldn't be crash happy, i've been running the alpha build for months with no problems.

3. Restart The Browser.
