Firefox Released

Posted: Thursday, February 7, 2008 by El Guru in Firefox, Fx 1.5, Fx 2.0, Mozilla News

Firefox was released earlier today. Must users will get the automatic update notification in the next 24-48 hours. However you can manually download and install the new version by going to or simply selecting “Check for Updates…” from the Help menu. Several bug and security fixes are included in this version, see the complete Firefox Release Notes

Attention Firefox 1.5 Users: In case you haven’t noticed Mozilla has ended support for this version of Firefox back in May 2007 and you really should be using the newer Firefox 2.0 builds.

    To say I’m not pleased with the latest release ( would be an enormous understatement. I read the warning about some add-ons not working, and I understand why they might present a problem, but it seems that I can no longer manage them at all – I can go to Tools/Add-ons and find my list, but clicking on anything at all locks the window and necessitates a Firefox restart. This applied to both extensions and themes. I hope this all gets sorted out before I’m forced to revert to the dreaded MSIE!

    I am having no problems whatsoever with the Add-ons and

    Maybe my Extensions just aren’t as complicated as other peoples. *shrugs*

    with frioefox preloader all you have to do is hit the restart button where its’s the one in addon manager window or one put in the start menu by extension. if i had a few more tech skills i’d use the firefox preloader to integrate firefox into the os like ie.
