While mostly positive, it does point to a few shortcomings, such as how the extensions site wasn't able to handle the onslaught right after release, which for 2 days kept the reviewer from accessing the site. He also mentions troubles managing extensions, and the issue of many sites only working with IE (which he admits isn't Firefox's fault)."

Ben, regarding the "new extension scheme", what do you mean by "more stability for users and flexibility for extension authors"? Could you please provide a bullet list or some specific bugs please?

Also, please try to keep the layout of the texturizer.net for the extensions selection. It is FAR better than the mozila.org layout. I would suggest to add a "compatible with firefox vesion(s): ...", and a small screenshot of how the extension looks like. ;-)

PS. For the MZ login (to add this comment), does anyone else have the password field on the 2nd line, and take the entire width of the 2nd line?
