I'm not quite sure what people's problem is with the new address bar. I admit, the first time it seemed to suck, but after a couple of hours it got used to what I wanted and now I get where I want to go just by typing in, well, where I want to go.
The issue is many people in this world are vehemently opposed to change. I see it all the time at work. We roll out something faster and better to replace a piece of crap old system, and people gripe and complain that the new system doesn't do x,y, or z like the old system did.
I like how the bar works. I just hate how freakin' huge it is. A simple plugin that preserves it's functionality, yet makes it the original size, works perfectly for my needs.

My only issue with the current URL bar is there's no "Go" button after a page's loaded. It's useful for when there are anchor links :-P.

Is anyone else having Gmail problems? I can't get into my gmail because it'll keep trying to load over and over and over again but it will never load completely...

Nope. I use the Google toolbar too, though.

I downloaded Firefox 3 for Mac. The first time I ran it, it wouldn't load pages. The second time I ran it, I tried logging into Facebook, and it wouldn't store my session. Haven't tried it since. :?

I see it too. I get 3 or 4 people a day asking if we have any computers that have XP. We end up doing 3 or 4 Vista to XP conversions a month.
