I dl´ed the RC3 binary from mozilla.com and it does seem to work better.
Unfortunately it's a 32-bit binary so a lot of my plugins don't work. I
can't seem to find a 64-bit version anywhere. I seem to remember Mozilla
used to keep a larger set of binaries in ftp.mozilla.com, not all of
which appeared on the Web page, but now it's gone.

Anyone managed to obtain (or build) a 64-bit version of RC3?


PS I don't understand why this isn't considered important enough to be
put in the updates repo.
