    Firefox 3 now available

    Firefox 3 is now available! You can join in the download day record setting attempt by downloading it today.

    If you would like more info about the new features, then check out the features page and the field guide to Firefox 3.

    Unhappy

    Now I am very confused?? I use Firefox. I like Firefox. I got all exited when I looked at your post. I tried the links and can not find a way to download it! What am I missing here? Maybe I'm just a bit more doff than usual today. Please help!

    This first link should take you to the Firefox product page, then click on the big Firefox 3 Free Download button (see attached image), and you should be a-for-away.

    I get to the page but the download icon is not on the page. Could it be that my security settings prevents this from showing? I even tried the other link and when I click on the download link I go back to the first page.

    Try this link, which is a "direct" (chooses a mirror) download link.

    Just went back to ver 2.
    Nothing really wrong with Ver 3 except that one is unable to load a large selection of the addons that I am used to from ver 2.
    I found that I have become used to to things like the google tool bar, colour tabs, download video tool and a few other that dont come to mind right now. Scary - its like subtle software addiction syndrome. I'll have to find a Software Anonymous near me and get into rehab fast.

    I'm sure they will all be updated soon - I think the google bar already has been.

    I have the same problem. I don't have that many addons installed, but the ones I do have I use all the time. Pitty the addon developers weren't ready for the launch of ver 3.
