Everything that this version of Firefox can be expected to do. The browser performs well.
What does not
What was not tested
Probably many things. I did not install Flash to test that.
Out of the box on Wine 4.9, HTML5Test gives Firefox 9.0.1 a 260 out of 555 possible points.
Sometimes the tabs appear underneath the window title bar, but this issue goes away if you simply resize the window.

After a little more testing, Firefox 3 seemed to show that it will run equally as stable in Windows Vista mode as it will in Windows 2000 mode. If you want the effects that comes from the Vista version of Firefox 3 (button colors change, GUI changes slightly), then put it in Vista mode.
If you are using Compiz-Fusion on your linux installation and wish to use Firefox, you need to disable it or Firefox will refuse to minimize or allow other windows to be on top of it without manually setting Firefox to sit behind all windows. It doesn't always seem to work, but the problem seems less frequent this way.

In previous versions works correctly.

That did not happen in versions prior to 1.1.16. I must say that use a uxtheme in wine. Please sorry for my English

But in versions prior to 1.1.16 works correctly.

This may be useful for some people...
I installed Firefox, worked great but without any network access.
I had to install lib32nss-mdns package (I'm on Debian 64 bit) to make it work.

"nss-mdns is a plugin for the GNU Name Service Switch (NSS) functionality of the GNU C Library (glibc) providing host name resolution via Multicast DNS (using Zeroconf, aka Apple Bonjour / Apple Rendezvous ), effectively allowing name resolution by common Unix/Linux programs in the ad-hoc mDNS domain .local."
I believe that would be necessary in order to get internet access in normal situations but I could be wrong. Perhaps you could give your comp specs or maybe tell how your network is setup to give people a general idea of when they'd want to check that?

I'm on Debian 64 bits, using Lamaresh repository for Wine, but the 32 bits nss-mdns lib was necessary to make network working on Wine.
Perhaps it's a well-known thing so you can delete this comment...
