RE: New FireFox

Why not install it and see how you like the new version? You can always revert to an older version if you find you do not like the latest one.

RE: New FireFox

Personally I found it is not worth the time to install v5 as I found nothing beneficial by upgrading. Also, at the time half of my add-ons were not compatible. I went as far as reverting to v4.0.1.

Regardless of your decision be aware FF v6 is schedule to be released next month.


RE: New FireFox

I just recently read an article that said they were considering doing away with version 4 now, not sure why but the article said that 5 was the one they were going to support.
I have not used either version, they are still updating and supporting 3

RE: New FireFox

I recently updated to FF 3.6.18 from 3.6.17 on June 21st and no issues and I'm staying there for now. I just came across the article below that stated Mozilla expects Firefox to hit version 7 by the end of the year.

Version 3.6.18 is definitely a keeper for me. Even FF5 has issues from what I found when googling FF5 issues!!!!

Here is a link that might be useful: Firefox 5 available for download

RE: New FireFox

I am using FF5 and I like it very much. It has some new things that I like.
