So is there a standard (IE non custom compile) 64 bit version of FF 4? I haven't been following them in awhile, but I thought that's when they were going to make the jump?

Thanks!


It got put off for standardized release until FF5 but the 64bit build continues to be worked in the nightlies.

Thanks for the heads up about Status-4-evar.

The Status-4-Evar extension will give you your bar back. Been using it on the betas since they took it away.

thank you for that plugin info! the new overlay drove me nuts. if the link is too close to the bottom left of the window the overlay pops up on the bottom right side. it doesnt seem like they thought much about ease of use when they implemented the overlay feature.

If you can believe it, they weren't even doing the overlay before. They had the url appearing *in the right half of the address bar*. Which meant that you usually couldn't see the vast majority of the address. Hooraaaay phishing.

There's a few different extensions to put in the URL bar like they had it in beta. I don't know why they did that, most of the feedback in beta about it was good. Status-4-evar was one of them IIRC. They hid all of the tabbed expose stuff from the user too which is a bit puzzling as its a major new feature (Hit control+shift+e to see it). I guess it was deemed not ready for primetime use yet but it works just fine for me.

Definitely a TON faster than 3.6.4, which feels like molasses in comparison.

Not compatible with NASA Night Launch (Boooo!) and I really don't like the link overlay in the bottom left. I understand why they did it (more browsing space), but with its own little bar, it's unobtrusive. Now it's a jarring interruption every time you mouse over something. Ugh.
