Finally, i waited half of the day yesterday (the 17th) and all i got was 2.0. Guess they picked a convenient American time to do an international event, how do they set an official record whith such bad communication?:(

I always used the English version, that's not the problem. But i was told FF3 download day would be the 17th... around 5pm on the 17th there was no FF3 yet, if they want to break a record they could at least have released it on time for most timezones to get people downloading it :).

I think Menthix meant the actual Download Day event - in Australia time's up at 6:16pm. That's hardly a full day at all! It started at 3am here too...But in the US it started at 11:16am. How convenient.

EDIT: Yeah I was right.

No. Only complete downloads are counted. Automatic updates from previous versions don't count also.

How is it lame :P I've been banging on to everyone I know all day to download it. Everyone now thinks I'm a stupid nerd and they couldn't really give a stuff, but meh :P
