    I’m afraid I’ve got another real silly question. How can I tell which build I’m running? I would expect that the auto-updater has been grabbing new nightlies for me, but the version-checking method that I’m accustomed to (namely, checking the “Help>About” dialog) reads the same “version 1.0+” no matter which nightly I’m running.

    Gideon, in that Help -> About box, you’ll see a browser identification string at the bottom. You can even copy/paste it. Mine is:

    Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8b3) Gecko/20050712 Firefox/1.0+

    Where the version is the date next to “Gecko”, in this case July 12, 2005.
