I had horrors left and right with stability issues with .9.7 on 3 different win2k machines. Moz's stability had been average to above average since .9.1, as far as I was concerned. But .9.7 commonly crashed, took forever to load (the window loaded but froze for about 30-60 seconds loading the personal toolbar) and on one machine I could never get it to run at all.

So far (haven't installed it on machine #3 yet), it's as good as ever...thanks guys for the hard work!
