Yes, but on Wednesday I watched as they added all of the different versions to their ftp site and then yesterday all of the software sites had it posted for download. What I just downloaded from the "official" site you posted is the exact same file I downloaded Wednesday evening. It just takes them a day or so to add everything to the http site nice and neat.

Yep, and Mozilla is known to pull files at any time for fixes and changes. The hosting sites will link to the ftp and the ftp is not release server. The end user best waits for the official release.

Once this file is hosted by a couple of the major software sites, I get it and that is exactly what I did last night.

So what's new in Firefox 18? I can't seem to find anything.

I upgraded to the official 18.0 release a few days ago.

I'm seeing problems with pointer stuttering and high cpu spikes with XP.

I ended up disabling ionMonkey and the problem went away.

about:config
javascript.options.ion.content=false
