    Did clean install of beta 6, but still getting same error as mentioned in beta 5 thread, plus greyed-out drop-down menus and sometimes blank page, plus 403 error when tried to send feedback.
    Searched Mozillazine knowledgebase last week without discovering any precise references to issues of this kind, so I'd welcome any ideas on this.
    Could someone provide an email address for reporting to Mozilla, please?
    This beta has become unusable for me last two builds.

    It's apparent they are feeling the IE9 heat and rushing it. Rushing just ends up with problems.

    I don't doubt that in my testing even 4b6pre was faster than this one :rolleyes: (no confirmation of above mentioned problems though)

    it does seem so, but this isnt really a full new beta build, it was just a quick release to fix a couple major bugs that many people had (maybe not all but many), so it pushed everything back a build so the feature freeze which was supposed to be in b6 is now going to be on b7.

    so they are kind of rushing, but at the same time they are releasing more builds if necessary for critical fixes so theyre still trying to make it work as well as possible before its released.

    No process separation though. :(

    According to this site FF 4 is becoming faster and faster. Look at the violet line which represents the combination of the "traditional" Tracing JIT with the new JaegerMonkey - its getting VERY close to Safari and Chrome in the Sunspider and V8bench benchmarks lately!
