The visual theme is fine except the large icons have too much padding on the left and right.

I love the spell checker (except when writing syntax).

I love the session restore, that makes life a heck of a lot easier!

There seems to be an issue with the tabs sometimes displaying the close button and sometimes not.

I downloaded this version of Firefox to see how it was coming along and for not having a new Gecko I actually like it a lot! :-D

Now if we could only get this bug ... <https://bugzilla.mozilla.…rg/show_bug.cgi?id=264131>

And the menus on my site to be accessible via the tab key on the pure CSS menus with tabindex Gecko 1.9 won't have anything to complain about.
