ultranova writes: Firefox 4 has been released. However, 100% CPU usage bug seems to be back (and severe enough that I was forced to downgrade back to 3.6 after half an hour or so), and the new interface is just different enough to be annoying; for example, "Open in new tab" and "Open in new window" menu items have been swapped around for no apparent reason.

In short, I recommend you don't upgrade at this time.
