Known Issues

All Systems

* Dragging a tab onto the desktop doesn’t create a new window (see bug 475066)
* Occasionally Google Mail will fail to respond when creating a new filter, showing advanced search options, or clearing the spam folder. Reloading Google Mail fixes the issue (see bug 477101 and bug 478778)
* When returning from Private Browsing Mode, some sites served over SSL will not load properly (see bug 463256)
* Some users with older computers or slower Internet connections may experience choppy OGG video/audio playback (see bug 462667)
* Users who run this beta, then downgrade to a previous Firefox 3.1 Alpha or Beta, will be unable to use stored passwords (see bug 467463)

Microsoft Windows

* If you are using MS Natural Input 2002 v8.1, IME will automatically activate when certain text fields are focused. This is a known Microsoft issue (see bug 478882)
