Downloaded it last night too, seems to work OK so far. One thing I would say 
is make sure you use a separate profile to your usual one so it doesn't keep 
trying to check your plugins.

I've noticed that the OpenOffice plugin that Firefox 3 hasn't been able to 
find on quite a few of my computers is now detected.
