Build Identifier: Firefox 4

My previous Firefox version notified me of an update.  I obtained that update to Firefox 4 and Firefox began acting worse than Gates' IE ever did.  The revamnped layout sucks.  I immediately lost all my add-ons including my treasured ability to bookmark all tabs and then quit. Worse, Firefox 4 keeps crashing on me...I'm having to send this message from Google Chrome.  The crashing seems worse if I attempt to refresh a page or conduct a Google search.  Beats me what's wrong, but please hammer out a Firefox 4.1 that is up to former standards.  This Firefox 4 doesn't even reach Microsoft standards...

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Can't do it or anything else with any reliability.
Actual Results:  
I've told you all I can about how the crash seems to happen.  Oh, my operating system is Windows Vista. It came stock on my HP laptop a couple of years back. It's an ACPI x86 based PC laptop, ST9320320 ATA disk device, Pentium dual core CPU T4200 running at 2.00 GHz.

Expected Results:  

Not crash! All I get is a pop-up notifying me of the crash--no other significant intel.  Dozens of times, I've tried to come back up with a new session.   Neither that tactic, nor dropping a few URL's and attempting works. I've never had such a problem updating Firefox since I began using it several years back.
