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)."

Which is why my first suggestion was to email them again. And I said use the Netscape 7's useragent not IE's which isn't as bad. Maybe when Mozilla reaches 2.0 they'll think it's worth supporting because it's a new version (oh wow 2.0!!) when in reality it's just the next milestone release like going from 1.6 to 1.7.

I'm looking forward to the 1.7 / 0.9 release because a bug I stumbled upon (I wasn't the first though) was recently fixed (i tested last nights nightly of firefox to confirm it's fixed) which will allow me to use a new CSS layout which works in IE and Opera. Imagine that something in CSS that works in IE that didn't in Mozilla.
