Just had a clean OS X install (Upgrade left some mess behind, decided to have a proper clean out :D) so I've just downloaded it. Gets better with every release :)

The nightlies are currently 0.8-pre's. I'll wait for 0.8 final before grabbing FB again though :)

Yeah, don't even think about trying the latest nightlies. I did, and I can assure you that they are pretty badly b0rked up at the moment. :p
I've gone back to a late December build now.

Firebird 0.8 should be just around the corner as well. :)
Yep, that is what I am waiting for! and right, the nightlies are really bad, some deleted files on drives, and messed up big time! better stay away from them AND wait a few days for feedback before installing the 0.8 version. 0.7 runs just fine here!

i'm running a nightly:
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7a) Gecko/20031222

would 1.6 be more of a downgrade or are there updates that arn't in 1.7a ?

1.7a is a nightly of the new, upcoming 1.7 resease. 1.6 probably has less of the features than 1.7a, but should also be much more stable. go to the forum to see what the current status is. I prefer a stable resease over an unstable nighly, but that is just because I need to trust my browser, don't have the time to play around with it. If you are happy, and it is stable for you, use it!

0.8 should look and feel almost the same, so your learning curve should not be that steep! look at this this way, at least you learned early! haha

and if 0.8 is that big of a change, im sure you can just go back and manipulate the shortcuts with extentions. :)

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
