  1. At last, Amazon have sent me my Win 7 discs (shipped early in the UK to avoid postal strike). I opted for 64 bit vsn, as I have had a new 64- bit PC in the box, for 2 months, waiting. Installed fine (if you have peripheral wireless keyboard/ mouse make sure to connect, insert disc and re- boot, other wise no mouse to use install menu). Just wondering if there is a solid Firefox vsn for Win 7 x64? I've seen a vsn called Minefield? Any good? or is it better to use latest 32- bit vsn? Cheers and happy win7 day!

    Minefield is still not a final version; I wouldn't use it personally.

    I find Firefox to be the fastest browser though, mainly due to the Adblock Plus and NoScript add-ons. Also, I use KeyScrambler Personal for an extra layer of security. With these, pages load faster than ever before. The difference in performance is quite noticeable IMO.

    Thanx Rage, I thought Minefield might be unproven and I will try your recomended add ons
