Pirated??? No this is a Beta version released by the Mozilla Organization as a way of testing before final public release. Pirated software is software obtained illegally without any payment reaching the software publisher. Since Firefox is by definition free how could you pirate it?

I actually did grab the beta for my mac and the new gecko and javascript engines do seem to speed things up significantly. However it still takes a long time to startup and none of my extensions seem to work.

Yes, that's why it's called a beta.

Seriously people, think.
