Firefox 3 is not my friend so far.

This is too cool.

A crop circle after you. That's more than awesome. It is at 45°7′25.68″N, 123°6′49.68″W. Check it out on Google Maps.

Download your Firefox 3 today.

Despite my love for Firefox even though Firefox 2 saps say, at least 120MB of precious memory every time I use it, I'm not sure about Firefox 3.

I've upgraded to Firefox 3 because the stupid prompt popping up every day at the most inopportune moment. I'm not sure if this STUPID memory hogging issue is resolved because it still reads 129MB when I check.

-- This is evidence, Firefox folks. Please don't deny it.

This is Day 2 of Firefox 3 and I can't stand the predictive function at the address bar. This is NOT a feature I want! The address bar expands into a list every time I type www to 'predict' which of my most recently visited sites I want to go to.

Say I want to check out work websites when my team leader Cylon, sits next to me with his face to the monitor. Right after I type in www. the list expands to

What the eff, people?!

I'm still not sure about Cylon. He could be smiling at me while he gives me a scathing and damaging performance review. F8ck no, I'm not going to let this happen.

So I Googled around for solutions. Do this:
Type about:config at the address bar
Scroll and look for browser.urlbar.matchOnlyTyped
Double click it to set it to TRUE.

It worked for me.

This is NOT a good feature MOZILLA PEOPLE! Don't make users go to about:config. Make it a setting in Options.
