It handles most of them OK for me with just a little bit of tweaking, 
but some addonss haven't been updated yet to work with Firefox 3 and 
will be automatically disabled until new versions become available.

I had a minor problem with firebug, Firefox disabled it but didn't 
detect that a new version was available and I had to go to the addons 
site and re-install firebug.

I had to create a link 
to /usr/local/diablo-jdk1.5.0/jre/plugin/i386/ns7/ 
in /usr/local/lib/firefox3/plugins.

Apart from that everything seems fine.
