I felt like Firefox hasn’t been quite snappy enough lately, and I heard that Firefox 3 is mostly performance updates, so I decided to give the Beta a try. ( get Firefox 3 Beta 1 here ).

Although it was much faster, I could not live without my extensions, so I went back down to version 2. Today, after a little searching, however, I found out how to force my extensions to work in the Beta.

I managed to get my favorite extensions ( Firebug, Better Gmail 2, Snipfire!, and Autcomplete Manager) working by following instructions from this post.

What you can do is open the configuration ( about:config ) in your Firefox browser, right click the list and create a boolean extensions.checkCompatibility option there. Set its value to false and restart the browser.

Awesome! Firefox 3 is SO fast!
