As for the first two items, I feel that FF4.0b9 loads a bit faster, and renders rapidly. As for customizations, you know that addons and skins are from outside, and, so, it is up to the developers to make them acceptable. But, I have compatibility checking disabled, so I am doing fine. As for memory usage, there may be be little or no difference between 3.6 and 4.0 (max. of 127MB with 3.6, and 113 MB with 4.0).
Since I have 3.6 and 4.0 installed in different folders, it is a non-problem. I, generally, get rid of previous versions, sooner or later. I don't know if it necessary to uninstall the 3.6. I remember that going from TB2.x to 3.x, involved some changes in the file format, so the upgrade did not need an uninstall. I would expect that the program would tell me if I need to uninstall.
