Anybody download and install this yet? I did today, hoping that they've fixed the memory problems that I've been having with Firefox 2.0. Well, I haven't had a problem with memory, but that new location bar, called the "awesomebar" is probably the most ridiculous overkill of a once useful feature I've ever seen. The problems I have are:
1. I liked how in the past it only stored sites in the drop down list that I had previously typed in. Now I can't find anything because there's all kids of bookmarks and random history links in there.
2. The different font colors and sizes make things just about unreadable
3. The autocomplete is completely botched up. If I'm typing something in, I typically want to go to the top level of the site. For example, if I type in www.redszone.com, that's where I want to go, so autocomplete should take me there. Unfortunately, when I've typed it in, it gives me links to individual threads I've visited rather than the top level site. It's so bad I actually went to the config file and turned off the autocomplete entirely.
4. While some people may like it, I figure many will not. Unfortunately, the developers didn't give us the option to turn it off.
So here's the dilemma, uninstall and return to the memory hog that is Firefox 2.0, or stick with 3.0 and do without some useful features of the location bar I enjoyed just to avoid being annoyed by the new and "improved" features.
