Ok, first sorry for posting it in this section. Had to post here since it's the most popular section :) .

FireFox day FAQ


**Note that you can run both FireFox 3 and FireFox 2 side by side. If you know a certain website/application has problems with FireFox 3(and not FireFox 2) you can still download FireFox3 and run it under a different program folder (ie FF_3,etc).

Not that many people pledged in Africa...

I read this before, but why can't Mozilla just make the download mandatory? That way will surely give you a ton of downloads.

That would get away from the spirit behind things. Forcing people to download it to beat a record? Thats pretty shady if you ask me. I'm curious to see how improved it truly is.

Ah, good point. I was thinking of that and you just confirmed it.

Anyways, hopefully things will speed up. Perhaps TGH will get a boost? :lol:

They say that Opera 9.5 is the fastest, but I still love Firefox with all its addons, etc.

I tried Opera before, but I feel more comfortable with Firefox. Come on, who doesn't like a ball circumscribed in a flaming fox? 'Sides, Opera reminds me of some TV show...:p

opera reminds me of overstock.com for some reason

So much for downloading it. Site has been unresponsive now for a few minutes. Going to take a while to get in and download.
June 17, 2008 5:10:42 PM

Yeah it's pretty painful to try to get in for a download... Maybe in 20 hours the traffic'll go down ;) ...

Im not seeing anything other then rc3 on the official site? Is rc3 the official firefox 3?
June 17, 2008 5:38:00 PM

I guess too many people are downloading it or something.
June 17, 2008 5:49:15 PM

i haven't even got my notification email saying it was ready, although i already know. site has been unresponsive since 1pm est.
June 17, 2008 5:50:13 PM

You would think they would have no problem handling the traffic, and I've seen nothing released yet.

Been using Firefox for quite a while and currently using the 3.0 beta. No way I am going back with IE and I didn't like opera either so Go Fox Go
June 17, 2008 6:22:07 PM

site's probably swamped trying to send out the 900 thousand notification emails....and then there's all the people flocking to the website for a link >.>

Mozilla's website has a link that says download Firefox 3, but it's build 2.0.0.14. The alternative site, getfirefox.com must be inundated, because it won't load.

June 17, 2008 6:54:00 PM

yeah.... much faster... i'm actually very impressed with the speed of loading up pages.... Last time i was this impressed was when i loaded up ubuntu x64 for the first time with firefox 2 and loaded up all my favorite pages like nothing.... I can't wait to see how this runs on my linux dist.
June 17, 2008 6:58:55 PM

June 17, 2008 7:03:31 PM

I've updated 5 of my computers. run's a little bit faster for me.

I'm on my 1st Vista computer and really like the eye candy compared to the xp design..... wonder if I can get the "vista" look on my 3 xp machines?
