Did mine months ago, no problems of any kind. Haven't seen much negative feedback on forums, SP3 seems to be a goodie.
But make sure that you back everything up before you install it just to be on the safe side. Better safe than sorry and all that.

Yep have used F Fox3 since is was beta with no issues. It got the best write up for browser in September's PC Plus, beating such names as Opera and Safari.
