RC - FAQ

attached is the most updated FAQ copy for RC. 
Feel free to update the page now, but please be aware that there are a few things that needs to be updated close to RC (and after RC).

I've highlighted the few lines that needs to be updated close to RC release.

I don't think I had panorama in the updated copy attached? was that from the previous copy? (after What is Firefox Sync?)

What is Panorama?

    Panorama is the next evolution of tabbed browsing. With a single keystroke, it gives you an overview of all your open tabs, so you can organize them into groups and switch between them with ease. For example, you might create separate groups for tabs related to vacation, work, recipes, games and social networking – whatever makes sense to you. Take a closer look at Panorama.

You are right, fixed it.
On what platforms is the Firefox 4 Beta available? should be updated to
On what platforms is the Firefox 4 RC available?


How did stability improve in Firefox 4 Beta?

    Firefox provides uninterrupted browsing when there is a crash in the Adobe Flash, Apple QuickTime or Microsoft Silverlight plugins. If one of these commonly-used plugins crashes or freezes, it will not affect the rest of the page or Firefox. You can simply reload the page to restart the plugin and try again

should be removed as  there is a corrected  version that  refers  to Firefox RC below it

Copy Update: 

Will the final Firefox 4 have the same look and features as Firefox 4 RC?
We do not have plans to add features or change the UI in Firefox 4, however there may be some changes as we work to polish the final product.

Where can I see some cool demos of Firefox 4 RC?
You can visit our Web O’ Wonder website (link: http://webowonder.org) to see demos of Firefox 4 RC and the Web technologies enabled by Firefox in action. Developers can always check out the Mozilla Hacks site for developer documentation and news.
No longer depends on: 577290, 638364
Under "Why does Firefox look different than it used to?"

It currently says:
"We updated the default look of Firefox to compliment the way people use the Web today. The new look makes it easier to focus on Web content and to control your Firefox tools. For more details, this blog post explains what we did to streamline the interface and why Tabs are on Top by default in Firefox 4."

However the linked blog post is this one by Aza:
http://www.azarask.in/blog/post/tabcandy/

Which doesn't explain tabs on tops (contrary to copy on RC page) and also encourages people to download the nightlies "to try out tab candy", which is obviously now redundant - but people might not realise that and try to download nightlies anyway.

good point. thanks ed. will look into this. thanks!
It if helps, this blog post (and accompanying video) might be good for the tabs on top side of things:
http://blog.mozilla.com/faaborg/2010/06/24/why-tabs-are-on-top-in-firefox-4/

It also touches on app tabs, the new notifications linked to the site identity button etc plus how to turn tabs on top on/off.
