    I've tested it and seems a little bit lighter, but there no huge improvements. Anyway, I hope Extension developers will update them to install on this version also. :D

    I never considered Firefox and memory as a problem, even on my old computer (512MB), where it was a problem.
    I just didn't care about that, because I like Firefox. I don't need fast surfing, because I need time to read it also.

    I solved any possible memory problem once and for all and gave my new computer 2048MB and I can expand upto 4096MB.
    All my applications open now in 1, 2 or 3 seconds.
    The first opening of Firefox takes 3 seconds, all openings after that take 2 seconds.

    I also bought a dual core CPU for multi-tasking and it works. If one of my scanners starts automatically I can do other things, which was on my old computer a serious problem.

    I never complain about a problem, that was caused by me, I just take care of it or I live with it without complaining. :)
