Firefox 4.0 is slated for official release today at some point but readers of an impatient nature can grab it from Mozilla’s FTP server. We’ll update this post with official links as they become available.

A word about incompatible extensions. If you come across one, do this:
- Type about:config into the address bar
- Create or modify this boolean value: extensions.checkCompatibility.4.0
- Set it to False
Or install the Addon Compatibility Reporter.

[UPDATE]: Firefox 4 now officially released! Get Firefox 4
