And I’m not talking about the petty things, which anonymous said was

a level of nit-picking that would get a Trekkie crucified and ridiculed off the net.

I’m talking about the bigger things. Like skipping selects in tab navigation, or the “Would you like to restore your previous session?” box that is inoperable for about 20 seconds while it ‘loads’ the blue question mark circle. Sure, you can click the button, but it won’t register. It won’t even delayed register, you have to just keep clicking it every so often until it accepts your click (and oddly, the button doesn’t seem to depress like a normal button, it acts more like a .png of a button with no on-mousedown attached). I haven’t looked for a bug for this one, but it’s just plain annoying. Oh, and how Firefox goes through a variety of colors in the toolbars while it ‘boots’. It’s like e-paper flashing, it’s just annoying.

    Amen. I read all the comments on that post and some people just don’t get it. It’s the weird, wonky behaviors that keep you from totally enjoying Firefox 3 on the Mac.

    I’ve tried Camino but I wish it used the Gecko version from Firefox 3–some widgets look crazy in it. Also, I’m glad I’m not the only one who is bugged by the crazy flashes when the window gains/loses focus.
