Still no freezing after almost 1 hour. That seems fixed, but to be my usual cynical self what else has been wrecked by the upgrade?

Be careful of upgrading Firefox to version 8. I clicked on it to start the process, and got a message that some of my add-ons were not compatible, and would be disabled until they were, including ancestry's image viewer.

OK I will give it a go. Just thought I should post in case any one ran into trouble with it.

Well it's certainly a bit different. But I think I like it.
