It seems to be loading very quickly and as far as your history just click view > sidebar > history
That is, if that is what you are looking for. Then to view the dates click the view drop down menu in the top right of the side bar and select by date.

well, I just installed it. Mem usage seems way down, which is awesome, but I just saw my first ad in a very long time and now I'm pissed. Adblock isn't compatible yet. grrr.

n/m...it just wouldn't automatically update. I found the new compatible version at mozilla.com. Crisis averted!

Simply opening a browser window tells me everything I need to know about why it's better (firefox in general I mean). It just opens and loads my homepage. Open an IE window and get hourglass, hard drive makes noise, clickity clickity, popup blocked x3. can't imagine why she's so attached.

Funny...when mine was updated it just said that my version of adblock wasn't compatible, then it asked if I wanted firefox installer to find a working version, I clicked yes, and it did.

Thanks, I'll play around with it when I get home tonight. I just figured I was missing something.

I'm running it and liking it so far (other than my prefered theme and favorite extension not being compatible so far). The reduced mem usage is really what drove me to upgrade since I am often running several applications at once.

I really like it except one of my XP machines is still having memory issues. FF immediately jumps to ~76MB and stays there. My linux machines are cruising along fine.
