This is really nice, but I must say I would wait a month or so for the final release to come out. Many of the extensions are still in process for compatibility, and I had some problems when I install this (granted, this was a week or so ago).

I think 1.0 is going to be a good improvement, especially with RSS.

I love this browser but for ONE thing!

Many site I go to (not this one thankfully) gives me a pop up that says "This document contains no data"

Drives me crazy!

I've heard of this bug, it really needs fixing. There seems to be a conflict between Firefox and some firewall software and/or anti-virus software (some say Panda, some Zonealarm, etc).

Turned my "Zero Knowledge-Freedom" firewall off and I no longer get the pop up warnings!

I wonder if there is a way to fix it.

So far the solutions seem to fall into two categories:

1) Try changing firewall software you are using (if indeed you are running a software firewall)
2) Wait until the next release

I'll post more in this thread if I find anything out on how to fix it.
