I did do a Forum search before i put this up, didn't know whether to put this in Windows thread or here.  Anyways been running beta for 2 days now, works fine. Don't bother with addons they wont work yet.

Only Addon that work for me atm is IDMC (Internet download manager)

The rest come up with incompatible with version.

Ive been using Opera 10.6 mostly as i found FF3 gets bloated, Opera never seems to slow down, might go back to FF 4 once final is released.

Most addons are working for me. Only ones that don't work are FEBE and morning coffee

Just cause they're not compatible doesn't mean they don't work - https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/15003/

hellonearthisman: Have you tied turning the compatible test off?
http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/21478/how-to-bypass-firefox-4.0-betas-incompatible-add-on-error-and-i.../


The addon i linked does this for you and lets you report to mozilla if the addon works as expected. probably a better way than this suggestion.

Installed Firefox 4.0b3pre 64bit version.

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; Windows NT 6.1; Win64; x64; rv:2.0b3pre) Gecko/20100724 Minefield/4.0b3pre

Seems to work well with 64bit windows7

The Firefox 4.0b1pre version had the add-on compatibility settings and all my add-ons worked OK.

Using the nightly beta3 64bit version doesn't appear to have an extensions compatibility mode.

May have to go back to the supported beta download of Firefox 4.0b1pre

Tested IE9beta but it's still got a long way to go.

Using Opera 10.7beta with no problems. Look and feel is the same as Opera 10.6

Opps. Forgot I need to add the about:config compatibility setting in Firefox 4.0b3pre

Once set Firefox 4.0b3pre 64bit add-ons are fine.

My previous post is no longer editable. Frown
