I think it's worse than that. The latest Adblock, my favorite extension, won't even let the browser window start - at least that's how it was with several very recent nightlies. Frustrated, I restored my OS partition from backup, installed 0.8 and I've been very happy since. I used the suite until recently and scoffed at Firefox for a while, but now that I manually set the prefs as I like them, I think 0.8 is just brilliant. <P>

My advice to people who rely on extensions and non-default themes: Don't upgrade from 0.8! It looks like 0.9 will be a bit of a trainsitional bastard, all for the sake of an excellent 1.0, I hope!
