Versions 00 through 09
Installing went flawlessly, and the browser starts quickly - as fast as usually - and everything is fine until....
(even the tab grouping and the new extension, add-on etc. works!!!)
What does not
you start to use flash, which you can flawlessly install, however, don't try to mess with it otherwise the browser will crash, and you have to use safe mode to restore it. To add the menu sometimes gets messed up if you're browsing it, but it recovers.
What was not tested
lot of things, maybe html5...
As Flash is no part of Firefox and Firefox works like a charm this is Platinum (even if Flash may be rated as Garbage)

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.
