My biggest beef was the password keeper would just stop functioning after awhile :angryfire: but I will say it is fast a ton faster than the IE7 and just a tad faster than the new 3.5 FF
    My password keeper has always been fine. I think it just didn't like you:haha:

    OK, so I decided to give FF 3.5 a try. I found a Chrome theme so it doesn't feel a lot different from what I'm used to.

    But I notice that FF doesn't render BBOS as good as Chrome. Actually it's not even close.

    Here is a screen cap from Chrome



    And here is the same screen in Firefox 3.5. There is a rendering problem with the tab highlights where it drops it down a bit.
    And another problem with the Online store tab.






    I think I'm gonna stick with Chrome. It just renders pages so beautifully. Sorry FF

    I think I can explain away your rendering issues, to a degree. You are right about the gap in the online store tab. As I noted in the forums tab thread, there is an error in the CSS that is causing the issue with there being a gap on the tab for online stores. That I believe can be corrected if the CSS is updated with the fix I provided.

    The second rendering issue you are observing doesn't happen on any of my computers running FF 3.5. You could be seeing that because of the theme you are using to make FF look like Chrome.



    BTW, please don't get me wrong, I'm not trying to be a fan boy or bash your opinion. I am just reporting that I don't have the second issue.

    No problem Sun. I didn't even think about the theme causing it.

    You could easily find out by going to Start > Run > firefox -safe-mode. Making sure the options are set so that themes aren't loaded (can't remember if it asks or not).

    lol, still does it in safe mode with the default theme. It's OK, I was just gonna try it. After using Chrome its very hard for me to go back to FF.

    BTW, I used to be a FF fanboy. Then I saw the light! :laugh2:
