Post 3+ Months Ago

Let me be the first to post about the browser... I think that this version is much better then the previous version, but that's the idea behind updating though so mission accomplished. I'll take the way the tab is placed above the address bar rather then with the address bar as it is in IE9. This version seems to be faster then the previous version (and I'd hope for it to, since upgrading should mean getting a better version rather then worse). I also like how they did the status like Chrome does... hides it until there's actually a status available to show, in which case, it shows it at the bottom left unobtrusively.

One thing I noticed in this version (which apparently was available in previous versions but went unnoticed by me) is Firefox Sync. I noticed it through the menu found on clicking the orange tab that is titled "Firefox" on the top-left corner. This is the main reason for this post :lol: has anyone used that service in Firefox? And how has it served you so far? What do you think about it?

Kind of weird that after a Month since Firefox 4 came out, they already released Firefox 5

I don't think so... it was a bit of time between v3 and v4.

The only thing that I noticed that's added to v5 that wasn't present in v4 is tab grouping and application tabbing although I'm sure there are some that I'm missing.

Here is one "bug" that I just now found out... I had a cnet open (The one you posted in one of my other threads) and in another I was trying to type "mozilla.com", but when I got to "mo" my address bar changed the the url of that cnet and it suggested I switch to that tab (I think this is a v5 feature... related to tab grouping). so in the end (When I continue typing Mozilla) it ended up to be htzilla (from http://www.cnet.au...)

Oh well...

No, try to open it in Ubuntu ;) (I think... everytime I tried to install Firefox 5, and opened the .exe (against my better knowledge) it opened the gedit showing the source...) It's probably something different than what I think it is though.

that can not be right like how could gedit show the decompiled source, would it be something like when putting a exe in notepad you get some gobble pook stuff in the txt but this has got my interest. Trying to find my ubuntu USB gotta check this out
