Anyone else got Firefox 3?

Has anyone else installed Firefox 3? I've now had three crashes, plus it seems to use more CPU and keep the laptop fans spinning noisily more of the time. (I'm running it on Windows XP Tablet Edition on a Core 2 Duo.) Memory usage seems a bit lower than FF2 before, not that it ever caused particular problems before. I do like the new features, but I'm surprised how unstable it seems. Oddly the crash-reporter has only kicked in for one of the three crashes, and I'm not sure why. I'm disabling all the extensions I can to see if it makes a difference. The only one that seemed potentially troublesome and off-the-beaten-track was GeckoTIP, which makes text entry areas cooperate with the tablet text input panel.
