    Enjoy.

    EDIT: It has finished the beta stage. I'm not sure if the non-beta is anything different from the beta version, Just download using the link above.

    Tnx for the heads up!
    How can I force my FireFox to check for updates?

    I don't think you can force it to download beta versions, so you'll just have to install it manually.

    Yeah, I know that FireFox automatically scans for FireFox updates, but that usually takes a few days.

    That's not what I meant, Firefox doesn't scan for betas at all.

    Firefox only scans and downloads new updates which aren't in BETA. Since BETA isn't always recommend.

    Upgrading to 3.0.2 Beta fix'd the issue of the spell checker not working (for me)

    EDIT: If you are still wondering how to force it to look for updates (if any is available) then Help > Check For Updates...

    I'm sure it does it on startup anyway.

    I'm going to wait for final through the automatic update personally.

    By the way, Javascript in Firefox 3.1 is around 2-3 times faster than in Firefox 3.0 which also includes the Javascript back end Firefox uses for its extensions and such. Also expect it to get a lot faster as time goes on as well as they make improvements to it.

    Firefox at my college just searched and downloaded 3.0.2 so i guess it is out of beta? (and releasing on time)

    Cookie who names the song which those last lyrics are from

    Yes i did turn it on and still didn't work
