    Mozilla Minefield

    Anyone else tried this out yet? The latest beta of the 3.1 version of firefox.

    I dont like where theyve put the "new tab" button - took me ages to find it and i can't seem to move it.

    Apart from that, it seems pretty smart, quick and seems to use a bit less ram than the original.

    Rolled out the Frontmotion MSI here. There was lots of complaining. I ignored them.

    Are you still using it? This last week on both my work desktop and my laptop at home, whenever I try to log in to edugeek or any other website that requires login, the browser crashes.

    Firefox 3 doesn't have a new tab button, just ctrl + t on the keyboard

    Unless I'm missing it, wouldn't use it anyway!

    I wasn't even aware anyone opened new tabs via a button, my dad doesn't know the feature exists and often complains that links he has clicked "DONT DO ANYTHING" and there will be 30-40 tabs open in IE or Firefox (he doesn't even know he has 2 browsers, just uses what ever opens)
