Firefox 3.5 has nasty bugs that break some Ajax pages that I depend on
(e.g. keydown event no longer works). Many plugins don't (yet) work with it.
(I depend on SwitchProxy for instance.) So I have to build my own
3.0 RPMs to get any work done. I'm not complaining to the Fedora Project,
however, because it is supposed to have the latest stable - to help iron these
issues out. (I do report the bugs.)
