No no, thank YOU. :)  I was going to report that moving from RC1 to RC2
caused me a lot of problems, but nice to know that y'all are on the
case. FWIW I have the following plugins installed, downloaded from

Adblock Plus 1.1.3
Add-on Compatibility Reporter 0.4.1
BetterPrivacy 1.45
bit.ly preview 1.272
Cookie Monster 0.98.0
Flagfox 3.3.20
ShowIP 0.8.19

I use all the same plugins in Windows 7, and went from the last beta
through RC[12] and now 3.6-release without the same instability problems
that cropped up after going from RC1 to RC2 in FreeBSD -current.
