    network.http.pipelining.maxrequests max value is 8. any number higher is disregarded.

    Loaded FF4 final yesterday on Linux. I retained my existing FF 3.6.15 profile So far, it's noticable faster than 3.x versions. The only thing I don't dig is the status bar has been done away with (since earlier RC versions).

    FYI, to those tweaking via about:config: maxconnectionsperserver adjustments won't have too much influence because the server itself is usually configured to control the amount of connections possible.

    Yeah your correct.. old screen shot It wouldn't hurt anything over 8 anyway.

    There is a fix for the blurry font without losing any GPU acceleration

    set gfx.direct2d.disabled to True.
    And make sure that gfx.font_rendering.directwrite.enabled is set to False (should be by default)

    One change to do, if you like the tab groups or app tabs, go into Tools, then options and then choose from the "when firefox starts" drop down list: "Show my Windows and tabs from last time". After doing that, you will able to save your tab groups or app tabs.

    Used sync for the first time today. Totally awesome! All this browser needs now is a "speed dial" on new tabs like chrome and opera, then it will be complete.
