Before you put Firefox 3 beta 5 in production, please take note of the beta-ness and be aware of this very serious show-stopping bug that still needs resolution:

https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=421482
http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=9546

Two months in to accumulating browser history, Firefox 3 is now completely unusable for me. Also note that this fsync behavior means that FF3 profiles cannot be stored on NFS-mounted home directories.

Agreed
My system has fits of complete unusability while ff3 is running. I truly hope this is addressed before the final release.

Yeah, my boss (the sysadmin) was pissed when ubuntu hardy heron installed Firefox 3 beta 5 on as the default browser. It works great in Windows and OSX though.

Ubuntu hardy is a disaster anyway. So no wonder your boss is pissed

Yeah
It's the best browser I've used in my life but it crashes /constantly/ on my machine.

Right
Good thing they put a beta version of it in an LTS release.
I'm changing distro's just for this. Sick of the bugs and the way we are asking for them.
