======== Firefox 1.5 beta is out ...
http://www.mozilla.org/products/firefox/releases/1.5beta1.html
but be aware that most ext's wont work with it , unless you bump up
their "max version " ......... here is a list of ext's that I have
working on Firefox 1.5 beta (by bumping the max version)

no script
disable targets for downloads
tabbrowser preferences
useragent switcher
bug me not
flash block
super drag & go
send to
scrap book
single window
bookmark backup
always remember password
tab X
click to tab
-- if you don't know how to bump the max version, here's how ;
download the extension , open with your zip program (like 7zip),
then open the "install.rdf " with note pad , change the number to 1.5
where it says max version,save , then install the ext (by draging it
into firefox)====

What does "bumping up the max version" mean, or is it that if I have to
ask, I should stay away from the beta?

=== perhaps you should wait for a while till the final version comes
out (maybe Nov. ) , buy then many extensions will have been updated
..... but some may never be updated , so you might want to learn to
"modify " the extensions info so that it will install on Firefox 1.5
.........
you download the extension (by rt. clicking the link and click "save
as " , then open it in your zip program , click on the "install.rdf "
file , open it in notepad , change the maxversion to 1.5 (looks like
this: <minVersion>1.0</minVersion> <maxVersion>1.5+</maxVersion> ),
save , then install into firefox.
be aware that some still will not work because their too old and not
properly coded for ver.1.5 =========

Still too many of my favorite extensions that were denied to this
new version 1.5b.

One would think there has to be a better way. After all, the
extensions are one of the grand features that make Firefox so
enjoyable and useful. Who cares about a new beta if it isn't
going to do at least the same as your current version?

Yep, might as well wait for the final 1.5 release. The only new thing I
see of any interest is the faster fwd/back paging.

Did appear to load faster initially (before I uninstalled it and restored
1.0.6, that is), but I suspect that this was primarily due to the far fewer
number of extensions being loaded. :)
