- Bookmark management is not 100% functional, yet. You can't drag & drop bookmarks and folders, either with bookmark manager or directly on the Bookmarks menu. You must use cut & paste. - Firefox complains if one starts it right after the previous session was shutdown. He/she must wait for a few seconds - Sometimes it silently fails to show up during startup (eg when started from a http link inside TB) and remains as 'ghost' in memory.

These are a few FF3 annoying problems still not addressed with beta3. They are all related to the new sql-lite bookmarks database I think. But glitches like these are to be expected from a beta release.
