There are a couple more bugs we'd like to fix for the 0.9 release but want to get as much feedback on the app in general before we go out. Please download this build and test with it and report any show stopping bugs that you find. We are still looking to do a 0.9 final sometime Monday." Builds can be found on the FTP site.

I noticed a little thing:

The Firefox directory (which stores preferences, profiles, etc) moved from "~/Library/" to "~/Library/Application Support/". Any particular reason for this? I guess "Application Support" is a better place for it, but a little warning would be nice. When 0.9rc imported my profile (from Mozilla?), everything was out of date because I hadn't used Mozilla for awhile. For some reason, 0.9rc ignored the profile in 0.8's (plus nightly builds') "~/Library/Firefox/" directory, so I had to manually move my bookmarks. It took me a minute to find the new folder (well, actually to realize that it wasn't using ~/Library/Firefox and then find the new one)...

Just out of curiosity, am I the only person whose 0.8 prefs, etc. were ignored with the update?
